I really love the contradiction of a floral bomber | linkup

Floral bomber trend

I always liked bomber jackets and always had one in my closet. However, when I saw the floral bomber trend, I had to have one. I wanted it in cool neutral colors and an abstract print for a grown-up casual look. I also wanted that the bomber could substitute for a blazer, sort of a down-dressed business casual. When I saw this bomber I knew that it was exactly what I was looking for. A special benefit, it was on sale and hence affordable.

Trends I passed on this season

When you follow me for a while or at least this summer, you may have noticed that I did not jump on the lingerie and Carmen trend. Don’t get me wrong, I love the off-the-shoulder look, but I find wearing it just so unpractical.

When it was the first time around in my life, I was about 14 or so. I had a white Carmen top with lace along the shoulder line. It always slipped up whenever I raised my arms. I had to pull it back in place all day. Guess what? I did not wear it that often. Thus, I did not buy one this time around.

Another trend I love

I also love the shine trend. I got a silver and a gold skirt. I am really astonished how versatile the pleated silver skirt turned out. I also styled this silver skirt with my floral bomber.

Which trends did you adopt and which one did you skip? Do you like the Carmen trend? Do you wear it? Let me know by email, I am curious whether I am alone on loving the trend, but not wearing it. Link up your examples of this season’s trends in addition to your outfit posts of this week.

Top of the World Style linkup-party


Welcome to the 71st Top of the World Style fashion linkup party. Thanks to all you stylish ladies who linked up last week. Your lovely outfits were so exciting and inspiring.

The Top of the World OOTD Readers’ Fav was Alicia, as you clicked her post the most. She is the blogger at Between the Pearls. Her little white dress is perfect for a stroll on a beach mall when on vacation. She styled the dress with white sandals and mastered this tricky look perfectly. When styling a white dress with white sandals outfit one always has to be very careful to not look like a nurse. A job well done, Alicia.

I loved Chichi’s sleek look of a casual white T-shirt with print and a structure white pencil skirt. She created a nice summer look by mixing casual with classic. The hair do gives the look a vacation vibe. The background makes it a summer in the Provence dream. Chichi became Top of the World OOTD My Fav. She is the blogger at The Style Tune.
