Banana Republic Adelia Pumps

For the mid-$100 range, the Banana Republic Adelia Pumps are probably among the sexiest, most comfortable, and overall best bang for your buck shoes out there for Fall. Both of my picks are called the Adelia, so let’s start with the first.

Banana Republic Adelia Pumps, d’Orsay style

Banana Republic Adelia Pumps

I’ve actually never owned a pair of d’orsay style heels, but they are really quite a sexy, feminine style. I love that these Adelia Pumps are quite simple and classic, and look like your classic pointy-toe pumps but with a twist. That little sexy opening in the middle that shows off your foot. 3.5″ heel, so they’re doable, especially considering they’re armed with Banana Republic’s legendary memory foam cushioned insole. Get yours here for $138 (currently with extra 35% off or 40% off if you’re a BR card member).

Banana Republic Adelia T-Strap Pump


With these Adelia T-Strap Pumps, Banana Republic is definitely trying to get on the trend of studded, strappy pumps a la Valentino Rockstud style. Definitely can’t blame them for trying; this style just oozes sex appeal and class at the same time. Not only is this Banana Republic version much cheaper, it also comes with their famous padding system, featuring memory foam and a cushioned insole. Definitely a good option for Valentino fans. Particularly love the Brindle nude color. Get your pair here from Banana Republic for $148 (currently 35% off, or 40% off if you’re a BR card member).

Old Navy Graphic Tees & Tanks

I haven’t looked at Old Navy in what feels like ages. They traditionally haven’t had anything super cute that I “must have” the way I often feel with other brands like J.Crew. However, I accidentally clicked on the Old Navy tab while browsing Banana Republic and “accidentally” saw they currently have a bunch of pretty cool graphic tees and tanks. Tees with “cool” sayings like the parodied “Homies” tee have been all the rage lately, so not surprising Old Navy decided to jump in, but what is surprising is that out of the countless graphic tees and sayings I’ve seen, theirs are actually pretty witty (as opposed to corny or teeny-bopperish) and wearable. Here are some of my picks. Snag ’em now with the 25% off sale currently on site!

Old Navy “Sleep is My Cardio” Slub-Knit Tank

Old Navy Sleep is My Cardio Slub-Knit Tank

Lol, “Sleep is my cardio.” I chuckled to myself when I saw this. I’ve been eyeing the ubiquitous “Shopping is my cardio” tee for the longest time, thinking it was pretty witty. This one is even funnier, because it’s just so lazy-bumish.

Old Navy Sleep is My Cardio Graphic Slub-Knit Tank

It’s technically a sleep/lounge tank, but I’d totally wear this out. Pair with a pair of denim shorts and you’re good to go for a casual day out. Get yours here for just $12.94. If you’re so inclined, and I sure am, pick up the other also cute versions below.

Old Navy #Snooze Graphic Slub-Knit Tank

Old Navy #Lazydays Graphic Slub-Knit Tank

Old Navy #Lazydays Graphic Slub-Knit Tank

PS. Slub knit has been my fav material since I discovered it a few years ago with J.Crew basics. Super comfortable, drapey, and flattering. Get either the #Snooze & #Lazydays tanks here for $12.94.

Old Navy “Take Me Away” Vacation-Graphic Tee

Old Navy Take Me Away Vacation-Graphic Tee

This “Take Me Away” slub-knit tee reminds me of something Madewell or J.Crew would produce. I can imagine dressing this up with a super cute full skirt or paring it down with just shorts and flip flops for the beach. The typography is simple but chic. Currently on sale for just $11, get this steal here.

Old Navy “Fabulous” Graphic Slub-Knit Tee

Old Navy Fabulous Graphic Slub-Knit Tee

Another “fabulous” tee that I could see coming out of Madewell or J.Crew. Again, this will pair very well with a girly full skirt and heels or just shorts and sandals for the beach. Love the simple typography on these. Get yours here for $14.94. Same goes for my last pick, which also got a chuckle out of me when I first saw it.

Old Navy “Holy Chic” Graphic Slub-Knit Tee

Old Navy Holy Chic Graphic Slub-Knit Tee

Heehee. Get yours here for $14.94.

Banana Republic 40% Off Picks

Ok yes, I know, Banana Republic constantly has 40% off sales, but for some reason, recently I find many of their pieces to be quite cute, so let’s pull them all together. Some may not be included in the 40% off sale, so always double check pricing in checkout! Let me know if you agree with my picks and if there’s anything cute I missed!

Banana Republic Monogram Silver Sequin Mini

Banana Republic Monogram Silver Sequin Mini Skirt

Um, how can anyone not love this? This entire outfit is sheer perfection. Casual, drapey sweater (Banana Republic Draped V-Neck Pullover), matched with this dressy-without-trying & blindly shiny skirt, and topped off with gorgeous, classic maroon pointy-toe pumps (try the Banana Republic Kelsey Pump). Get this silver sequin mini skirt here for $98.

Banana Republic Monogram Gold Sequin Mini Skirt

BR Monogram Gold Sequin Mini Skirt

I don’t know what’s up with Banana Republic and their slew of sequin mini skirts lately…it’s not the holiday season nor is it New Year’s. However, I’m definitely not complaining. I can’t get enough. I want my hands on almost every sequin mini they have. Dress ’em down with tees, dress ’em up with button-downs, they’re the perfect day-to-evening skirt. This gold sequin mini skirt is on sale here for $49.99. Don’t forget it’s another 40% off of that today!

Banana Republic Monogram Silver Sequin Mini Skirt

BR Monogram Silver Sequin Mini Skirt

Yup, another sequin mini skirt. I like how complicated this one looks — very detailed, very expensive. Probably a good pick for Fall / Winter more than summer, but I don’t care, it’s on sale, it’s pretty, so I’m getting it! Get it here for $49.99 (& another 40% off on top of that!).

Banana Republic Fitted Non-Iron Chambray Shirt

Banana Republic Fitted Non-Iron Chambray Shirt

For some reason, I’ve never looked quite right in chambray shirts. I always feel like I look like a farmer or like a laborer…as weird as that sounds. But seeing this outfit, and seeing this chambray shirt paired with such a fun pop of orange and that striped bag, I realized maybe I’ve just been putting chambray shirts in the wrong outfits. This shirt/outfit is so casual, fun, yet polished.  Get your chambray shirt here for $59.50.

Banana Republic Chevron Stripe Tank

Banana Republic Chevron Stripe Tank

I’ve been obsessed with this top since the first time I laid eyes on it. Why? I can’t really pinpoint. But I love it. It’s so perfect for summer, especially paired with a white bottom. I’m not alone in loving this shirt, since it keeps selling out. Every day a couple of sizes pop back up and it’s a mad scramble to check out. Oh and the price is uber reasonable, especially with the 40% off, at only $39.50. Check for your size here.

Ok, that’s it for my picks for now — what are yours?
