What I Wore: Velvet & Bows with Banana Republic9:00 AM
The month isn't even halfway over and I've attended at least three holiday events and have submitted my RSVP to three others. Some are ultra festive, and some are fairly casual. So what's a girl to wear? I teamed up with Banana Republic to share a couple of pieces from their newest collection to style for the holiday season.
Their stylists selected this Tie-Neck Blouse in Cocoon and their Abby Flats in Burgundy; both of which are super versatile with festive touches like the bow at the neck of the blouse and rich velvet fabric and color of the shoes. I paired them with a vintage tweed skirt from Oscar De La Renta but you can easily make this look more casual by pairing them with black ponte knit leggings or dark denim.
Banana Republic Tie-Neck Blouse c/o Banana Republic // Vintage Oscar De La Rena Skirt (Found at Goodwill Allston) // Banana Republic Abby Flats c/o Banana Republic // Coach Swagger 20 Handbag (c/o Coach; Current Version) // BelaBracelet Hair Tie Cuff in Silver c/o BelaBracelets (Use code FALL25 for 25% off through Dec. 31st!)
The blouse they sent was a size 0 Regular, it has a zip back so the bow isn't actually functional or adjustable but it fit well, not too tight or too snug. The blouse itself is a bit long which is perfect for styling with leggings; tucked into this A line skirt you don't notice the length at all. The shoes are a size 8, I sized up from my normal size 7.5 because the silver flats I love so much from BR have the tendency to rub my nail polish down and I'm all about extending my pedicures as long as possible!
I've been having such great luck at Banana Republic and their holiday sales! I scored multiple items at 50% off during their Black Friday sale including this fringe tee I shared earlier this week. I also purchased this Belted Plaid Coat (which is really more of a heavy cardigan) and I've been wearing it almost daily at work. It's a cozy layering piece that's perfect for these cold December days; I've been wearing it so much, you're sure to see it on the blog soon. Banana Republic is currently offering 40% off your entire purchase with code BRWISH. Shop now, the sale runs through 12/11!
