getting-ready-for-fall

Happy Wednesday everyone! With a sudden and dramatic drop in temperature here in the Midwest, the impending arrival of fall seems much closer than expected and I must say that I’m not terribly disappointed.  It’s no secret that fall is my favorite season.  I love the cool crisp air and holidays but most of all, I love the fashion statements that are made during this season.
Favorite Fall JacketI’ve been looking forward to bringing a fall favorite back into circulation for some time.  I purchased this jacket last fall from Madewell.  It was an unexpected and lucky find (I purchased the last one in store which just happened to be in my size and greatly discounted) but one I was happy to add to my wardrobe.  I’ve been looking forward to bringing this jacket back into rotation and have been happy to do so during the cool Midwestern evenings we’ve been experiencing lately.

Happy Wednesday everyone! I took a lovely trip to NYC for my cousin’s wedding and a much-needed vacation a few weeks ago (read a snippets of my trip here and here).  Travel Recap  New York WardrobeI was so happy to be back in one of my favorite cities spending time with some of my favorite people.  Unfortunately for me, the week I spent there was possibly the hottest New York has experienced all summer.  I’m the first to admit that I don’t do well with heat, particularly when it’s accompanied by high humidity.  I made a huge mistake by not checking the weather forecast before my trip and plan my wardrobe accordingly.  Fortunately, I packed several skirts, dresses and shorts and loved wearing this chambray dress on a casual day out.NYC mini shopping session

I didn’t plan on doing any shopping while in New York but I couldn’t resist this beautiful Banana Republic pencil skirt I spotted on sale.  I purchased the skirt for $15, originally $90, thanks to the greatly reduced price and additional 50% off discount.  The skirt is still available here but at a higher price point ($50).


Thank you so much for reading. Be sure to check back on Friday for more on A TUESDAY IN APRIL!

banana-republic-chambray-shirtdress

Happy Friday everyone! For today’s post, I wanted to feature this simple yet chic ensemble I’ve been loving lately.  I purchased this Banana Republic chambray shirt dress a few months ago during one of their regular sales (one of the many reasons I love BR!). I’d been searching for a chic shirtdress for sometime and this one instantly caught my eye.

It was among the items I featured in this wardrobe wish list post.  It was on sale with an additional 40% off, making the total purchase price less than $40! I couldn’t pass up such a great deal. I’ve been pairing it with another Banana Republic sale find (belt) and either dressing it up with cutout booties or going for a casual feel with my favorite flats from Target.  This combination is chic, casual and put together and has been a great day-to-evening outfit.
