Banana Republic has a Friendsgiving event, online only, ending tomorrow. You can take 40% off your purchase, with some exclusions (BR Pick, BR Monogram, cashmere, leather), using code FRIENDS. This code also applies to Gap and Old Navy.

~ Open Front Merino Wool Cardigan, Navy, Medium (long version)~

This merino cardigan looks to be sold out online but I found this in-store on the sale rack. I already have a merino cardigan from J.Crew but it’s v-neck and I wanted something a little more classic and cropped. The medium is a good fit though the sleeves are pretty long, as you can see by the bunching at my wrists. The neckline is also a little wider than the standard crewneck of J.Crew’s Jackie Cardigan.


~ Puff-Sleeve Plaid Top, Preppy Navy, Medium ~

I was drawn to the puff-sleeves on this top, as well as the length of the sleeves. They are long enough to cover my arms but don’t quite hit the elbow; not too short or too long. When I saw this in-store it was styled with this purple blazer, which I thought was odd. I thought what is actually a bright pink color in this plaid top was red. But now that I know this is pink I can see wearing this top with my pink houndstooth heels. This is a poly blend that feels a little like wool while the pink version is 100% poly. This also comes in a tee.  It runs TTS.


Here are a few more of my picks for this Friendsgiving sale.

Banana Republic has also launched their Holiday Collection so you’ll find some great options for upcoming parties like this sequin skirt, tuxedo dress or these heels. This FRIENDS sale ends tomorrow.
