Happy Friday lovelies! Today is an exceptionally happy Friday because I've finished the first week at my new job! And what does every serious business girl need in her wardrobe more than a couple of chic blazers, am I right?
Banana Republic blazer [new, $30], Ann Taylor button up [new, $20], Banana Republic slacks [new, $25], Tory Burch flats [new, $120], Gucci bag [vintage, hand me down], Gucci scarf [new, gift], Michael Kors watch [new, gift], Ring [vintage, hand me down], Rayban glasses [new, $100]
Outfit Total: $295
Lip color: Urban Decay in "F-Bomb"
I picked up this blazer recently at a Banana Republic factory store in Portland (you may have seen it on my IG story!) during their end of year sale. BR blazers typically run around $200, but this was the very last on the sale rack and it just so happened to be in my size! Marked down to $60, an additional 50% off sale brought it to $30, more than 1/6 of the original price!
I picked up these pants with the blazer (was looking to update my closet with more work friendly pieces) and got an equally great deal on them! I love the classic camel color, and the cropped length gives me the opportunity to show off some seriously cute shoes. ;)
I got these Rayban glasses at a seriously low price over the summer, and it was all just by utilizing my vision insurance! I had no idea, but my insurance provides a certain amount of money for contacts OR glasses, and since my beloved Burberry glasses had already withstood 7 years, I thought it might finally be time to update. If I had gotten basic lenses, I would have only been responsible to pay $25 for these glasses! I ended up upgrading the lenses, but still wound up paying less than the frames would have been sans insurance. Definitely something to look into!
