I know, every blogger right now is talking about the BIG Sale (it opens to non-card holders on Friday and I’m still trying to decide if I want to make a Friday Shopping post about it or not, are y’all sick of hearing about it yet?). But did you know that a lot of our favorite stores, like Banana Republic, have released their pre-fall collections? That means this is the perfect time to shop pieces you can 100% wear now as well as later into fall! My favorites shops right now that have introduced their new collections are J.Crew and Ann Taylor (either in-store and/or online), but today it’s all about Banana Republic! Scroll through this sweet little slideshow to see some pieces I’m excited to wear now, into early fall and well…any other time of the year really!
MORE FAVORITES FROM BANANA REPUBLIC:
TWO-TIER LACE DRESS
There’s always that one piece that catches my eye that gets a Weekly Weakness post going, and this dress is it! It reminds me of my purple eyelet one from spring, but this dusty blue and soft lace is too pretty pass up.

Short-Sleeve Lace Top
What makes this lace top so special has to be those little bell flutter sleeves. Also available in white and green, I’d love to wear this top with a chic pair of dark wash jeans right now for date night!

CLASSIC REBEL CLUSTER DROP
If you’re looking for simple jewelry that makes a statement, these earrings are it! Seriously, wear them with a sundress, jeans, a suit – it all works with this sparkle!

BUTTON SHOULDER CABLE PULLOVER
Alright, I know you can’t really wear a sweater right now (it’s currently almost 100 degrees in DC), but those cool summer nights that lead into fall will roll in before we know it, and you’ll be glad you had this beauty!

PLEATED LACE MIDI SKIRT
Midi skirts give me life year round, and I love this one because it reminds me of the version I picked up earlier in the springtime from Banana Republic. The best skirt ever so yeah…you need it! (And can we talk about those heels?!)

Peplum Wrap Tank
I am seriously so obsessed with this top, I have no doubt this will be my first purchase from BR for the late summer/early fall season. Wear it solo for warm days and with a cardigan once it gets cool out…it’s just too pretty to pass up!
SHOP >> PEPLUM WRAP TANK
Someone commented the other day on my Twitter (so nice of them) that I needed to stop wearing my Karen Walker sunglasses in my outfit posts. Umm…ok? Guess I need to stock up on some new styles and colors!

Drop-Waist Floral Dress

ESSENTIAL SHORT-SLEEVE CREW TEE
You’re probably wondering, “Cathy why are you showing a basic white T-shirt?” And the reason is because this is the best white tee ever! It’s not see-through (I swear!) and is fitted and super soft! I’ll be wearing mine in an outfit post soon!

Avery-Fit Print Crop
For those days when jeans just won’t cut it, try a great pair of printed pants! These pants work with flats and a t-shirt now, or with a blazer and pumps come fall!
