Today I decided to mix it up with some bright colours. Banana Republic Factory had a sale over the weekend and I stopped by and got this blouse. The shoulders have little bows on them! I am also wearing my new Bi-stretch skinny ankle crop pants from Gap. I decided to keep them and give them a try. They are okay fitting after I shrunk them in the wash. They are somewhat baggy in the legs but the waist and length isn’t bad. The part I don’t like is the fabric. It is quite rough, not flexible and soft like the Sloan pants from Banana Republic. However, these pants are also cheaper than the Sloan pants. I had on my navy blazer earlier but took it off as it got toasty in the office.
