If you go through my closet, you will find a bunch of statement pieces and a bunch of classics– you know, the stuff that will never go out of style. As I’ve grown into my own style over the years, I’ve found myself mixing the two together pretty often. I mean, how can you not?! There is so much sophistication in a bold piece yet the right amount of simplicity when it comes to a basic one. I’m so excited to be partnering up with Banana Republic today to share just that– two fun looks that carry a simple yet sophisticated summer vibe!
Y’all, quick little disclaimer. I have been shopping at Banana Republic since my JPMorgan days back 6 years ago. They have TONS of great workwear pieces but not even just that, Banana Republic has the trendiest pieces year round that are perfect for weekend attire too! That being said, y’all can only imagine how excited I am to share two pieces I picked out from Banana Republic that are totally my style and so perfect for a chic yet sophisticated look! Let’s get right to it! 🙌
LOOK 1 ft. this BOLD pleated midi skirt:
[full_width]You know what I love most about this skirt? The fact that it’s insanely versatile for being such a bold piece. I styled it with a very simple white ruffled tank and a cute belt to give the outfit some definition. However, you can totally wear a long sleeve sweater or any short sleeve top and make it into the perfect workwear outfit (getting rid of the casual belt, that is!). It’s one of those skirts that is great for work, brunch with the girls, a holiday party, or even a wedding! I absolutely love how it stands out and the natural flow is stunning. Definitely a bold and sophisticated piece to add to your closet! I’m wearing an XS in regular and it sits right at my waist perfectly. I’m 5’4 for reference!

LOOK 2 ft. the CUTEST most practical tote ever: [/full_width]
Ok so I ordered this tote just because I thought it was so cute and would make for a fun travel bag as well. BUT THEN I OPENED THE INSIDE AND FOUND A PORTABLE SMARTPHONE CHARGER?!?! Best surprise ever considering I’m traveling next week and this is most definitely going to come in handy!!! I love how roomy the inside of this tote is– yes it should be able to fit your laptop (it fits my Macbook Air perfectly along with other fun essentials!). It has a magnetic closure which is nice to keep all the things intact–I prefer totes that have some kind of closure so things don’t fall out. I paired this timeless tote with a simple dress and added a little sophistication with a bandana-print scarf! I absolutely adore this ensemble and love how the tote really ties together the entire outfit!
