Top 5 of the week

I’ve got bomber jackets on the brain lately, I think most probably because I am desperate for the kind of weather in which you can wear a bomber jacket (though some of these are perfectly suitable for layering right now). First up: you know how I love a good army green.

wang

Two elements make this choice stand out for me: the nifty slant pocket and the shirt-style collar.

mango bomber

Possibly a bit much on its own, but a cute choice for layering under a heavier jacket so just a bit of the print peeks out.

zara bomber

Just your basic black option, and at a quite nice price.

reversible bomber

Reversible, utterly spring-like and—to my mind at least—completely adorable.

Cheap and chic of the week

Turn ordinary bill-paying into a burst of fabulosity with this lovely specimen.

Big old happy art giveaway!

chaize

I am especially excited about this giveaway, because I love art-for-the-people site 20×200 impossibly much, and happen to own this very print, by artist Christian Chaize. Check out the site for loads of affordable art, and to enter, just click here by February 19.

A not-cheap but absolutely perfect linen tee that I’ve been wearing nonstop since its purchase.

A somewhat wackadoo bag that I only nominally understand my strong attraction to.

Cozy, cute wool clogs for padding around the house.
