Summer at the Office

For years, Banana Republic has been my go to store for most of my work clothing needs.  It has also been a great resource for beautiful handbags and fantastic jewelry and shoes.  One of the things I love the most about this store is that the pieces are classic, but still on-trend.  Also, they have fantastic sales, where I can often find items at 40% off the original price.  

Living in the Bay Area, we have many microclimates.  My office recently moved from a city on the bay to an area much more inland, meaning I had all of the wrong clothing to wear for a summer on the job.  I work in a business casual to dressy casual (think jeans and a blazer) type of environment, and as the season has gotten warmer, I have realized that it is time to do some wardrobe updating.  So I threw a couple of things in my virtual (read, pretend) cart.  I may need to do some whittling down (my current cart total is $1493.84...eeek).  

1)   Mirra wedge  $79
2)   Stretch pencil skirt  $69.50
3)   Lace overlay shell  $39.50
4)   Leather rhinestone bracelet  $19.50 (I am currently waiting for this to arrive)
5)   Semi-precious necklace   $69.50
6)   Nylon zipper tote  $59.50
7)    Moto snap jacket  $130
8)    Marcia knot flat sandal  $79
9)    Silk print sheath  $150
10)  Cropped cardigan  $49.50
11)  Mayle t-strap heel  $120

OK, I actually stumbled across this bag on Piperlime (but hey, it is the same 
company).  I am more than a little bit obsessed.

12)  Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Baby  $398

I love the Mayle t=strap heel, the MJ bag is cute too but would defiantly break my budget
Forever Chic,

I particularly like the sheath dress! Really aim for you need updated in your wardrobe. Maybe that'll help you narrow down your pretend cart to a more reasonable price. Lol!

And I like Banana Republic too! Though honestly, I'm more of a Gap kind of girl. lol.

Oooh really good picks! Those wedges are FABULOUS. My go-to work outfit is a sheath dress with a cardi and round toed nude or black heels... simple and sweet with layers are the best for me!

PS. LOVE the Petunia pool pics below! So precious : )
