Rainy Day

There's something about rainy spring days that makes me want to wear bright colors.  This pink top was a recent purchase.  I really like the subtle pattern, plus the keyhole neckline.  I definitely think it will be getting a lot of wear this summer!  I paired it with my basic black pencil skirt and a structured white jacket for work.  I've had this jacket for years.  I remember it being a bit of a splurge at the time but I recognized that the quality material, classic shape, and interesting details would make it a piece I would wear for years and I definitely have!  You can really find some great things at Banana Republic.  I've had a number of things from there for years and they are still in excellent condition.  Are there any stores you would recommend for quality clothes?  Share in the comments!

  1. I agree about what you said about Banana Republic. They have great, quality stuff especially in jackets, sweaters, pants and skirts. I would say the same about White House Black Market and Ann Taylor. For the prices, usually Express and The Limited have great quality too. Your blazer and especially the blouse are gorgeous.

    Enjoy the longer weekend. Ada. =)

  2. Well someone has to bring the sunshine in on a rainy day! That top definitely brings it. I love all the nice details about the top.

  3. That is definitely a classic piece - I bet you are so glad you picked it up when you did! I totally agree that BR is a great place for quality pieces. Every piece I have from there has been totally worth the price.
