Statement Sneakers & Bomber Jackets

Sometimes I have fun finding statement pieces like coveralls or a snake print dress. Sometimes it’s fun to talk about go-to, everyday pieces I wear on repeat. Right now, I’m living in my black bomber jacket and leopard sneakers. They take any outfit to a more interesting, cooler place, and they’re just great to grab when you’re feeling a little blah or haven’t a clue what to wear. I’m all about these easy, game-changing pieces for everyday, and you know I like something interesting in all of my looks. Also, let’s be honest — even though I do this as my job, I want easy peasy when I’m in a rush to get dressed. Check out my on-repeat favs here first, and then see a few more options I’ve rounded up below!

Outfit Details

Jacket (XS) – Levi’s Flight Jacket (on sale!) Super-cute and great for this in-between weather. I love it as a different option for my jean jacket or moto jacket. It’s soft to throw on over a tee and is just a nice updated shape. Black was my fav when I tried on a few recently in this post.

Tee (1) – James Perse Slub Tee – Perfection in a white tee. The sleeve length is super-flattering and the fabric is insanely soft and slightly sheer. It just looks cool — the tee I’ve been searching for forever.

Jeans (27) – AG Sophia High Rise Ankle – Love these. Just a super-flattering, only slightly distressed, great faded black wash jean. I cropped mine a bit more to the flattering just-above-the-ankles length. These are the sexy pair you want to wear for date night.

Sneakers (TTS) – Golden Goose Superstar Sneakers – Favorites ever. Ridiculously priced, but bought on sale and worth it. They go with everything and look cool and flattering. They have a little heel lift that makes calves look nice. I resisted them for years, but there’s a reason people love them. They are true to size, but size up if you’re between European sizes like me (I’m a solid US 8 shoe)

Bag (similar) Sole Society Valah Faux Leather Satchel – My bag is sold out, sadly, but Sole Society makes some of my favorite vegan bags in the cutest styles.

I’d love to see what statement sneaks you’re rocking these days or any comfy spring jackets you love. I also found these fab laces you could use on any pair to up your game! So fun.

And if you’re in Portland, I highly recommend the food carts on N. Lombard. SO many delicious options, so everyone can get what they want (and I can grab a pint at the beer porch, of course). They even have live music on the weekends and the kiddos all dance and it’s the best. Also, ice cream is there, so…

Until next time!

  1. Agreed, they are the MOST adorable. She looks so big! Also love her rainbow bomber! Sorry, all the kids on this blog start to be show-stealers at some age – looks like you’ve reached it.

  2. Feedback on the $21 GG knocks offs that you have listed above. After seeing your story, I ordered a pair for myself. Obviously the quality isn’t near the GG….they’re PVC rather than leather, the suede and calf hair are faux…but from a distance, they look very much like the real thing. The shoes arrived very quickly after I placed the order (2-3 days, tops). They are a little stiff because they’re PVC, but on first try on, they seemed like they would break in easily. If you order them, order up as they run small. Usually I’m a 38, but ordered the 39 and they fit perfectly. The only negative is that the pair I received are in horrible shape. The faux suede toes are discolored and the sidewalls are scuffed up badly. It looks as if someone wore them around for a few days, cleaned up the sole, and returned them. I’m returning them, and hopefully the replacement pair will be better.

  3. Hi, me again. Chalk me up as the un-hip mom of the week. LOL. According to the company’s customer service (and a look at the product photo on a larger screen than my phone), evidently the shoes are supposed to look like someone already walked around in them for a week. Strange, but okay. So I’m keeping them. Definitely worth the $20 for a fun, trendy pair of sneakers.

    • Haha. You are amazing for providing us with this feedback! I SO relate on the details these days. Haha. The GG also look like someone has worn them a bit, but in a good way? Is that a thing now? Apparently. I so appreciate you writing with your findings!
