I had quite a few clothes to return this weekend at Banana Republic and the GAP. Hubby HATES clothes shopping for himself (is that a huge surprise? I guess opposites do attract!). I usually order him several options online – he tries them on in the comfort of our own home and we decide what to keep and return – completely painless all around!
As I was returning some of hubby’s clothes at Banana Republic, I got drawn in by their sale table of necklaces – all with an additional 30% off !!! (this sale is still going on in store and online!) Here are my first 2 BR necklaces – the 3-stone necklace was $23.78 down from $55 (I can’t find it online), the Horse Bit Link necklace was $17.49 from $50.

Then I went to Express to spend the gift card I won at their pop-up closet (by the way – although I have done some sponsored posts for Express – this isn’t one of them). With the gift card & coupon, I had $50 to spend. Here are some of the items I tried on:
|Feathered Faux Fur Vest|
This faux fur vest feels amazing – it’s the perfect piece for fall. Although I didn’t purchase it this time – someday it will be mine!
|Rib-trimmed Wool Blend Coat in Flax|
I loved the color of this coat, as well as the rib-trimmed lining – very cozy! But I didn’t really think the lapels of the coat would work for me – especially since I like wearing scarves most of the time.
|Alpaca Blend Sweater Coat in Heather Gray & Sequin Tulip Back Tank in Nude Blush|
The Sweater Coat is another perfect piece for fall – and would also look great belted. I ADORE the color of the sequin tank – it’s so flattering, sparkly and festive! If I do purchase it, I’d have to find a delicate sweater to layer it with, as I don’t often wear sleeveless tops by themselves.
|Long Convertible Sleeve Blouse|
And now for the piece I ended up taking home – I love the simplicity of this black & white blouse. It can be worn both as a tunic and tucked in. I plan on wearing it with jeans during the day, and with a black skirt & statement jewelry at night. I was so happy to find it – and after using my gift card & coupon, I only ended up paying $3!
Do you own any Banana Republic necklaces? Does your SO hate shopping as much as mine does?
