I broke my resolution against shopping. Couldn't pass up a good sale at Banana Republic, especially when the salespeople were handing out cards for additional discounts and I get the card for 50%!! I picked up a little bit of everything: top, jeans, skirt, dress. The total ended up being something like $78; not bad, right?! Here's what I got:
The top is appropriate for work, and can be worn casually, too. The jeans are a nice, dark wash with a slim, straight leg (I can't do the skinny jeans; they make me look like a tween skater!). The skirt is silk, which means I'll be wearing it a lot this summer (olive is my new neutral). And I love the dress because it'll be perfect for MyKo's wedding, it's got pockets, and the final price was 75% off the original tag -- score! I sure can live with not following through on a resolution if it means adding meaningful and long-lasting pieces to my wardrobe!
