Bonmarche Biker Jacket - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Morning all.
How's everyone today.  I'm running around like a mad person - finishing the last minute bits and pieces BEFORE THE WEDDING!! Yikkes!!
I had planned to get all my blog posts ready to go, but as usual I've left them to the last minute and am keeping busy busy until everything is sorted.  I toyed with the idea of not blogging for a month, but with FOMO in my head I've carried on - do you have FOMO???
Fear of missing out - I haven't got it bad at all I just like to stay involved and keep up-to-date with you my fellow bloggers.  I like to know what people are doing and wearing, just so I can get ideas and keep abreast of the latest 'real' fashions.  I'm not an avid follower of magazines as such, just like to peruse and see what's on the horizon, then I put my spin on it.  So I'm here to stay for this month at least. 🤣

So today let's talk about this cute little jacket....
I'm delighted to be collaborating with Bonmarche again.  Having worked with them in the past they are proving to be up there with the leaders.  You can check out my previous choices here.
Last week in stripy trousers, last year in a very cute jacket, skirt and blouse & in Spain being spoilt in the sun!

You won't be surprised to know this jacket isn't any different with fabulous quality, on trend style and in-your-face colour.  My pick is not only serviceable, but stylish as well.


Items marked with * have been gifted to me, however these are 100% my own honest comments.



I picked the jacket for two reasons, firstly I've wanted a biker style for ages, they just seem so versatile, complimenting a cute dress, smashing it with jeans or teamed with flares or as I've done here with a graphic tee for an alternative street style look.  The second they seem to be a bloggers 'go to' jacket - see I've jumped on the bandwagon - there's my FOMO again, lol.



I picked my Zara graphic tee shirt to wear over my grey wide leg trousers.  The bright orange hair was hitting the spot with the equally bright jacket.  I'm not missing out on sharing my in-your-face street style.


I have to let you into a secret, the belt bag isn't actually a belt bag but a cross-body bag.  I just slid the belt through the open bag and clipped it shut.  It's not very safe as when It's opened it could fall, but I pulled the belt tight enough so this didn't happen.  My silver bag proved an interesting little addition, bringing a bit of bling to the outfit & it's storing my provisional 'street fashion licence' - lol!  Do you think I'd pass?




So we have zips and studs just like every biker jacket needs.  Two pockets either side of the main zipper, studs to fasten at the top, but probably won't be used as that makes me feel too enclosed.  Finally leaving the best to last the gorgeous suedette material, so soft and comforting, but looks mighty trendy.  In a bold and striking red, this jacket will get you noticed and noticed I was when we took photos - every dog on the beach came to say hello - maybe they had FOMO too!!!!


Bonmarche have the biker jacket* available in sizes 10 - 24, and will set you back a mere £40 with free delivery over £40 - a great reason to go ahead a get your own.  Loving the two alternative shades of cobalt blue or purple - what would you pick?


Thanks for stopping by today.
It's time for the #chicandstylish #linkup my friends.

  4. Jacqui, this might be one of my favorite looks ever of yours! I love this biker jacket on you and the color is magnificent! The outfit is the perfect mix of chic and badass! That graphic tee is so great, too. I hear you on blogging breaks and FOMO...I often toy with the idea of a break, but then I can never get myself to take for more than a few days. But do what you need to do, my friend, we will all still be here if you take a break! Btw, I gave you a little shout out at the end of today’s post!

  13. what a fabulous Jacket and the colour is striking. Is it as comfy as it looks?

  14. I have a black biker jacket in a thick, stretchy material (scuba poly maybe?) that I just love but I don't have one in a glorious color and that red is fabulous! I'd definitely have a hard time choosing between it and the blue on the website (and they ship Internationally, so that's a plus). It looks wonderful on you and the graphic tee you've paired it with is the perfect complement! And I love the way you hung your bag on the belt.....that's genius!

  17. Jacqui, I SO had to relate to FOMO. That is totally where we live as bloggers, I think. The latest trends and unique ideas--we don't want to miss a thing!! LOL! Your outfit is so cute and I LOVE that orange jacket.

    Happy planning!
