We all know that this blogger loves themes. Last week was a fitness theme and this week is my St. Patrick’s Day theme! So, that basically means you’ll be seeing lots of green this week. Enjoy!
If you follow my Facebook page for this blog you already know that I went on a shopping spree with my mom a few weeks ago. Her and I have this tradition of going shopping to Banana Republic and then hanging out at my apartment. Is it weird that even after a year of living out of my parent’s house (for the second time) I still get excited when I say my apartment? Well I mean technically it’s also half the boyfriend’s, but you know what I mean. Ok, back to my original conversation about BR. I noticed it’s every 3 months we shop so I’m going to call it our Quarterly Banana Trip! I always used to think that Banana Republic is so expensive, but if you know how to shop it’s really not. They always have some kind of extra percentages off, on top of some of their clearance items dropping to an awesome price, and if you are a Banana Republic card member you get rewards. This last shopping trip I had $55 in rewards that I cashed in. You can only imagine how excited I was when I saw my total drop that much. I always love a good bargain. I don’t know what it is but I almost get a thrill when I shop for things and then discounts and rewards. Does anyone else have that? I love being able to know that the dress that was originally $150 I got for $40 (or less).
From that shopping spree I got this embellished jacket ( I have to get a better picture of the embellished flowers), a pant suit, two skirts, pair of Sloan pants (those are legit my favorite pants), and the flats worn in this picture. Sooner or later half of my wardrobe will be Banana Republic.
They have the perfect casual wear and work attire. It’s a great mix of both. I also like having pieces that I can switch from work to regular life. I feel as though sometimes my fashion takes a toll on the weekends. Since I dress up all week for work, on the weekends I always want to be comfortable. I know, I’m a poor example for a (part) fashion blogger. This would be the perfect weekend outfit. Black stretchy pants (no, these are not leggings), a nice casual jacket, and flats. This 5 foot 9 girl loves her flats. As a tall girl I’m so happy that flats are still a trend because I love being able to look fashionable yet not be towering over everyone.
