Bomber Jacket Outfit

Welcome back to Cologne! The city where I spent a neat 24 hours exploring in the hunt for colour. On our second day, Rosie and I tucked into a lovely breakfast at the Courtyard Hotel we stayed in (we had a little party there the night before to celebrate their 1000th opening!) and headed off out to the colourful cafes by the river front that we’d spotted the day before.

It’s the perfect area to dine al fresco and watch the world go by. I made the most out of the empty chairs and made myself at home in my matching bomber jacket outfit – a get-up that I can only describe as a mixture between Sailor Moon, a Tesco cashier and a patriotic American (from Boston, apparently) on a school trip. Seeing as we found ourselves in sweet shops and were talking photos everywhere we went, we may as well have been!

Check out the rest of Cologne!

    You can’t go wrong with a bomber jacket (I think I have at least 6 now!), and that one is amazing! Definitely need to track one down with a slogan on the back!

    You look great, those bright colour definitelu suit you. Love bright reds and I’ve always wanted to try out… but I guess I’m not that brave 😀
