When I was younger and lived with my parents, I would hide shopping bags in my car and sneak them in the house once they fell asleep. Not that it was ever their money I was spending (I got my first job at 15 to support my habit), but my parents always tend to worry (a lot) about me. In hindsight, I don’t regret this recklessness one bit and if I had zero bills to pay nowadays, I’d be filling my trunk up with shopping bags still.
Unfortunately, I’m an adult now and things like paying rent prohibit these beloved little shopping sprees. It’s also due to this thing called, “responsibility,” that I try to purchase pieces that easily transition from work to weekend, so that I can have a vast wardrobe, while still getting my money’s worth. By far, my favorite place to shop for such items is Banana Republic. Since graduating college and becoming a YoPro (7 years ago, yikes!), it’s been my go-to store for sophisticated style that I can wear any day of the week.
This outfit, obviously is no exception. I’m in love with this striped, ruffled blouse and this floral bomber – there are honestly no words people. Worn with my favorite distressed denim (which is currently 50% off btw!), these two clearly make for a great Sunday Funday ensemble. Although I’m never one to wish away the summer season, I do hope this heat simmers down a bit so I can wear my new favorite jacket more frequently. As for my blouse, it’s already been worn several times to work and Saturday brunch!
