Trendy On A Budget

Looking good shouldn't cost that much!

Flannel x Work

Banana Republic_Loeffler Randall_coverI am a walking billboard for Banana Republic. As I started detailing the outfit for this post, I realized everything I am wearing (minus the bag and necklace) are all from BR! I must say, BR has been killing it lately with their style (thanks to the ever so talented Marissa Webb) and sales, making it a lot easier to justify the spending. In one of my recent trips, I couldn’t walk away from this super soft flannel shirt. So soft that I found myself petting the shirt as I walked around the store. When I shop, I try to find pieces that can be worn both at work and play. More bang for the buck; ya know what I mean? But does flannel really work in the office?

I think it does! With a clean front and silhouette, paired with a solid pencil skirt and stacked heels, I achieved a work appropriate outfit. Skirt not your thing? This could easily work with ankle length pants, a fitted blazer and flats; also another cube-friendly outfit.

As I previously mentioned. I’m all about squeezing as much wear out of my wardrobe. So stay tuned for my next post on how to style this top for play.

    I’ve been shopping at BR since I was in middle school – everytime I think I’ve outgrown them, I get suckered back in and find some awesome stuff! I guess I should stop fighting it and just embrace that BR’s style is really who I am. 🙂

    I really like the concept of your blog, I feel like trendy on a budget is the story of my life 😛 and I 100% agree that plaid works at the office, this is super put together looking plaid, nothing sloppy about it, and so pretty! Love the look. Happy Thanksgiving!

      Thanks Jill! I’m always looking for ways to stretch my money, especially when it comes to clothes. Thanks for stopping by the blog and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
