I’ve been loving what Banana Republic has been doing lately, so when I got an email that everything was 40% off, I went crazy and ordered ALL OF THE THINGS. When all the “random” clothes I ordered arrived, I realized I could pretty much mix and match every piece together…and also found out that my new favorite color combination is green, camel and gray. (For someone who’s usually all shades of black and gray, this is exciting, people.) Here were my favorites:
My Accidental Capsule Wardrobe: A Banana Republic Try-On Sesh
1. These Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans
These are the curvy mid-rise skinny jeans that are cut with a narrower waistband, a higher rise in the back and more room in the hip, seat and thigh. Basically, they’re made for curves and won’t fall down — woot! They come in regular, tall and short lengths (I’m 5’4″ and am wearing the short length). Right now they’re on sale for 40% off, PLUS an extra 20% off at checkout.
2. This Fuzzy Coat
I LOVE this coat. I tried it on in navy last month, but have been dying to try the green. It’s definitely not a kelly green like it looks on the website, but more of a deep emerald (which makes me like it even more). It’s SO soft and feels really luxurious.
3. This Cozy Sweater Set
The fabric that this set is made of is really stretchy — it’s not tight and constricting like a lot of ribbed knits are. Super comfortable and pretty much perfect for Thanksgiving.
Just The Top:
The neck doesn’t come up too high and the slits on the side make the stomach more flattering. It’s thinner and soft! (Also in green.)
Just The Skirt:
I’m wearing a small in these pictures. Also in green or black, this skirt is so much stretchier than it looks. (Like I could literally do squats in it…but I wouldn’t.)
4. This Fabulous Cashmere Mock Neck Sweater
OK, this sweater is amazing. The neckline is perfect–not too high or too tight. The cashmere is soft and warm and slightly thicker than your average cashmere sweater I love the slightly cropped length and shape of it, and that the arms are still longer. Also in ivory, navy or bright pink. (Right now it’s excluded from promotions but it was included the other day–I’m betting it will be on sale for Black Friday if not sooner!).
5. The Vegan Suede Jacket
The color I’m wearing is currently sold out, but it’s already been re-stocked a few times (so check back if you like it!). It also comes in black or olive green, and I love the added stretch because it’s even comfier than real suede.
…And A Pair of Comfy PJs (your toddler will love)
I couldn’t resist these leopard-print satin PJs. They come in an adorable drawstring pouch which makes them perfect for gifting (I will be gifting them to myself). There’s also a plain black pair if leopard isn’t your thing, or a safari print with a bunch of animals all over it that my toddler would probably love even more than the leopard.
