For years i’ve loved Banana Republic tank tops. I wore them under most sweaters and tops, and loved the extra coverage and ability to wear them on their own. Until recently. Express (not a site I normally visit), was having a sale and I decided to test out these camis. They come with a built in shelf bra and are a thick cotton material. Guys, they are absolute perfection. They suck everything in and perk up the tatas in a way that is just divine. Get on this!
This. Sweater. It has literally been on my body morning, noon and night since I got it. The way this came to be is actually even better. StyleMint sent me an email a few weeks ago saying I had credits that were going to expire. Having never shopped any of the Mint brands I perused the website and decided to take a chance on this sweater, something I wouldn’t have normally spent my money on. Seriously, it has proven to be the most versatile thing in my wardrobe. I wear it on weekends over baggy t-shirts, for work over skinny jeans with boots and a nice top, or for nights out under a tighter-fitting blouse.
I was originally hesitant about the extreme drape but find that when belted it has a cool, casual vibe. Even when left open I love to wear tighter fitting stuff and let the sweater just be a baggy top, almost like an overcoat.
I know that not everyone is into buying from the Mint brands so here are some others that look very similar. P.S. yes, i’m wearing sandals in February. San Francisco loves me. Thank you weather gods!
This blouse has been on serious repeat. Belted, free flowing, layered under jackets, i’m all about it. There is a kelly green version on sale that i’m seriously considering picking up. In other news, I love this giraffe printed little skirt from years ago. I bought it at Francesca’s and the skater, flared shape has proven to be fantastic in creating that double peplum look i’ve been into lately.
I seriously couldn’t find any similar animal print skirts but here are a few printed skater skirts that i’ll be picking up this season. The floral one from Ted Baker specifically is calling my name… Can we say perfect transition piece?
I wore this outfit on Sunday to brunch and a photo session with some of my favorite blogger babes. We had so much fun discovering this old loading dock and messing around with our cameras. I wanted to be comfy yet chic and spent a good 15 minutes staring at my closet unsure of what to wear. Whenever i’m in this situation my default is always a dress of some kind. This old J.Crew shift has served me well through countless seasons and when paired with this equally cheery vest, it transitions perfectly into cooler weather.
Fun fact: I shrunk this dress in the dryer a few months ago. I love it so much that I opt to pair it with 100% opaque tights and boots to still be able to wear it.
I love that the inside of this hood also has contrasting stripes. Fun, but unintentional! Because I know this exact dress is so old, here are a few other options that i’m loving (and seriously considering picking up to replace this old one i’ve got).
