With a newborn, I’ve re-discovered my love for basics since I now have a much smaller window of time to get dressed! I’m excited for the days we can start traveling more as a family, but as of now, simply getting out of PJs and out the door can feel like a small accomplishment. This outfit combines some trusty basics that I’ve had for a while with a longer, duster length cardigan that’s on-trend for Fall. This sweater is labeled “plush” and it’s indeed fluffy, soft and warm for upcoming trips and chilly plane rides.
To tie the solid colors together, I added printed shoes with a flattering lower “V” dip in the front. Leopard shoes will surprise you with their versatility – this same print also comes in a lower loafer or kitten heel, or I love the look of this bolder block heeled pump rendition (I have the Madison block heels in another color and they’re super comfy!). For a casual or travel outfit for exploring around town, I’d swap in high-waisted skinny jeans and pointed flats or mules plus a crossbody bag.
Banana Republic is having 40% off online (no code needed; sale price reflected at checkout) through 10/13, and card members get an extra 20% off with code BRCARD20. I tried on a few pieces in-person and wanted to share some current picks!
- Cable knit sweater tunic – Soft, medium weight cable sweater in 3 pretty neutral colors and a length that hits right at my hips. The cabling looks nice quality in-person and xxs petite fits well on someone my size.
- Cotton blend cable sweater – Beautiful sweater that I wish came in petites. It’s in a smooth weave (compared to a fluffier / looser weave) and the slight balloon-shaped sleeves give it more of a fashion-forward look. The weight is heavier and substantial, and the all-over cables are nice and thick. xxs regular works casually on someone my size with the sleeves cuffed up.
- Scallop pencil skirt – The staple pencil skirt updated with a scalloped edge and slightly longer hemline. The material is the same bi-stretch fabric as on BR’s popular Sloan pants. I found this to run a little big – a 0 petite was roomy on me. I’d pair this with a striped turtleneck tee tucked-in, or a cami like the one I’m wearing (I love that it’s lined and has adjustable straps!) plus a cropped blazer.
Thank you to Banana Republic for partnering on this post.
