Fit Review Friday! Banana Republic Faux Fur Bomber

Happy Friday! Banana Republic is offering an extra 60% off sale styles today. I tried on this super cute faux fur bomber at the store recently.  For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches and typically a size PXS/XS in Banana Republic. Size 4 in Lululemon tops and size XXS/PXS in Athleta tops. I was pretty impressed with how soft the faux fur is. I'm wearing size XS here and it works because the style of the jacket is cropped. The bomber look is something that never really goes out of style in my opinion and I like the ribbed cuffs and hem. The thick collar is also also a nice touch. The jacket hits at the hip and does not cover the bum. This jacket is semi fitted and very comfortable in the size XS. The PXS would have been a little bit more fitted on me, but they didn't have it at the store. The fit is slouchy in a cute teddy bear way. The sleeves are as always too long on me. I did not go home with this mainly because the camel color is never a shade I re

Fit Review Friday! Banana Republic Store Try Ons

Happy Friday! These photos were taken while I was still on my shopping ban. I walked out of the store empty handed but I'm seriously thinking about going back for these jeans. These are Banana Republic's mid rise skinny jean . They're currently on sale for $59 too. What I really love about them is how they actually fit my calves. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall and typically a size 4 in Lululemon bottoms. For Banana Republic this translates to a size 26P or 2P.  They are also the perfect length for petites! I'm wearing size 26 petite. I think they look really cute with my Birkenstock's . These are mid rise and come up a little below my belly button. These are definitely the nicest pair I've come across recently that really fits.   I'm a fan of these. I think I may have to get a pair!   For work I usually stock up on a few pairs of Banana Republic Sloan Pants . The previous version was dry clean only

Athleta Black Friday Sale!

My back account sure isn't happy with me for the past 24 hours. 😅 Athleta is having their 20% off coupon with the code BLISS . I've put in my order for the gray black version of Herringbone Mercer Tight  which I have in navy and love! Also getting another Pranayama Wrap in regal plum. I'm trying something new the Criss Cross Back Hoodie Sweatshirt in flagstone gray.  And in case you didn't know Banana Republic is also having a huge 50% off Black Friday sale, so I ordered a leather jacket in gray. Hope everyone is getting their shopping on! Have fun!

Banana Republic Friends & Family Event!

Banana Republic is having their Friends & Family promotion right now. If you're a cardmember use code BRCARDFF  for 50% off regular priced items. 30% off leather, suede, silk, and cashmere. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and wear a size PXXS in this wool blend twill peacoat . Petite Wool Blend Twill Peacoat size PXXS The fit is pretty spot on. Hits at the hip. Sleeves are the perfect length. The style is really cute. I love the stripe twill pattern that runs diagonally. It comes with a collar tab that is removable. It's a cute detail but probably something I would never use. Removable tab. I'm not even sure what to call it to be honest! I love how the back of the jacket looks. The waist is accentuated and looks very pleasing with the button placement. The fit is very comfortable. The wool is soft. The jacket is fully lined. The pocket placement is a little awkward. It's off to the side and the only way to place your hands in is s

Review! Lululemon's City Street Cardigan & Banana Republic Logan Trouser

I know I'm not the only one who dreads Sunday nights. Just thinking about tomorrow makes me feel anxious. I haaaaate waking up early for work. The night before I try to at least think about what bag to switch to and that makes me feel a little better, but not by much. It also helps if I can come up with a nice outfit to wear on Monday.  Every so often I'll see if I can spruce up my office outfits which is what today's post is about. For reference I'm 4 feet 11.  City Street Cardigan Heathered Mystique Size 2 Banana Republic Logan Trouser Fit Cropped Size 2 - more on this later. This cardigan caught my eye because of how pretty heathered mystique is. I'm a sucker for lilacs and shades of purple in general. This piece is made of cashlu. It feels heavy and soft to touch. It's definitely a fall piece. I was surprised at how dense the weave is. For this piece I went with a size 2. I would say the fit is true to size but the sleeves are super l

Fit Review Friday! Athleta Short Sleeve Criss Cross Dress, Zephyr Tee, Banana Republic Sloan Pant

Happy Friday!! Friday is the best day of the week. Why? Because I know Saturday and Sunday I can sleep in. Once it's Saturday, I'm already dreading Sunday. 😂 This week has been really crazy. Kitchen renovation is still ongoing. Demolition took place on Tuesday. The cabinets are 90% finished. Monday we have a vendor coming in to measure the counter. Then we have to wait about two weeks for the counter tops to be cut. After that we still have to do the backsplash. Then I'm debating on having the entire condo professionally cleaned. I really do not do well with all the dust that's flying around. My asthma starts up and takes weeks for it to go away.  Today is also my 2nd wedding anniversary! My husband sent flowers to my office and made all my female co workers jealous.  After work we went to IKEA to return some things. Check out this super long IKEA receipt. It's almost as tall as me! After that we headed over to one of our favorite restaurants
