I can’t believe it’s already March!  The weather in SF has been warming up this week and I was excited to wear a new shirt that I picked up at Banana Republic – the softwash gingham… It fits great, is super soft and the length is perfect. Unfortunately it’s sold out online but there were plenty in the flagship store!

This is how I put together the outfit today… I’ve gotten quite a few compliments at the office so I think this is a winner for casual Friday!  The shirt shown is a similar style that is currently available from JCrew Factory!

I just saw Banana Republic’s tweet about the new Mad Men collection and I couldn’t be more excited!  It’s mod,  fun and in wearable colors for my red hair and fair complexion!  Perfect for spring and summer!  I’ll be hopping on over to the flagship store at lunch to check it all out in person!

It’s no secret that I absolutely love Banana Republic.  They provide good quality clothes at reasonable prices, e appropriate for work but can also transition easily to going out and the weekend.  Even today I’m wearing head-to-toe BR at the office.  This is my first handbag purchase from them and I am not disappointed!

I’ve been on the hunt for a great bag that can transition from purse to overnight bag easily. On one of my most recent trips, I picked up this bag, the Blake Tote in black (Navy shown above).  It retails for $79.50 but I happened to have a coupon for 40% off a full priced item.

What I love about this bag:

  • Multiple interior pockets
  • Three different compartments including one with a zipper (Important for public transit!)
  • Mobile phone bocket and slot pocket
  • Lightweight
  • Big enough to fit my all of my regular purse items, iPad, two days worth of clothing and toiletries
  • Leather straps are comfortable on shoulder for extended periods of time
  • The nylon has stayed clean but I am happy that I can sanitize it with a wipe after setting it down in public, on transit, etc.

This is not a sponsored post… I simply love this bag!
