Rainy Labor Day and 40% Off at Banana Republic

Well, we aren’t spending the last day of summer in the sunshine or water. We are predicted to have thunderstorms all day. Sometimes I love thunderstorm days. It forces us to stay inside and be a little lazy. Well, if I’m honest I love one thunderstorm day. Anything beyond that and I get cabin fever. I won’t be out shopping today. We are headed home from the lake and I have laundry to do and lunches to pack to get ready for tomorrow, but I did find a good online sale!

My favorite “chain” store to shop at is Banana Republic. When I worked full-time in an office setting I wore BR almost every day. Their clothes are pretty classic so I  wear them multiple years. It’s a great place to get basic pieces and they always have good sales. Today, EVERYTHING is 40% off! Here are my top picks from their sale.

Camel Sweater – I love the color camel! This is a great basic piece to have in your closet this fall, but if camel isn’t your thing, they have LOTS of different colors.

Cashmere Sweater – Washable Cashmere?! Sign me up! This top is perfect for our Houston “fall.”

Maxi Dress – I have no idea where I’d wear this dress. I just like it!

Utility Shirt – I see wearing this with jeans to PTO meetings or a nicer lunch or church with slacks. I’ll probably jazz it up with some fun earrings. I’d also suggest getting the olive green color although blue is pretty classic. Get both! They are 40% off!

Black Pants – The weather during Holiday party season in Texas can either be 70 degrees or 28 degrees! Last year, I was FREEZING when we went to J’s holiday party and I thought, I wish I had pants to wear. These are those pants. Pair these pants with a silky top and some glittery earrings for those cold holiday parties.

Tulle Midi Skirt – I’ve always wanted a tulle skirt. Maybe it’s the wannabe ballerina in me. Maybe I’ve watched too much Sex and the City, but here it is… a tulle skirt!

Earrings – I love this pop of green!

Heart Sweater – What a fun whimsical sweater! I’m wearing this with black jeans and my white mules!


Sleeveless Hi/lo Turtleneck – The PERFECT layering top!

Enjoy your day off!
