My Picks: Banana Republic Friends & Family Sale

Banana Republic friends and family sale 1

I couldn’t sleep last night/this morning, so obviously I was on my phone browsing the Internet and Instagram. I stumbled upon Banana Republic’s Friends & Family Sale and there’s so many great pieces (many of which I’ve ordered already), I had share what’s worth checking out. Get 40% off regular priced items or if you’re an email subscriber, get 50% off! Over the summer I kind of took a break from BR. Not intentionally, I just wasn’t finding anything that suited my style. I’m feeling the complete opposite right now. I want everything! Let’s face it, BR does fall and winter best, don’t you think?

BR black coat
BR navy coat

Italian Melton Wool-Blend Robe Coat

This is a great simple black coat. Perfect for fall, but can be layered in the winter. It also comes in petite sizes.

Navy Italian Melton Wool-Blend Long Coat

I bought this coat a couple weeks ago. A simple navy coat, you think. Once it arrived, I was pleasantly suprised. In general, BR does outerwear really well. Great quality and the sizing is on point and flattering. This coat doesn’t disappoint. It’s a longer style, which I like. And it has a large collar, which is usually my favorite part of all coats. This comes in a pretty winter white as well as petite sizes.


BR Teddy blazer

Teddy Blazer Coat

I have this teddy blazer and it’s been one of my favorite finds for fall so far. Teddy coats tend to be really oversized, especially on petite frames. The fact that it’s a blazer, really helps with that issue. It’s fully lined, super cozy, and fits extremely well. You can see me style it here. Comes in petite and regular sizes. I’m wearing a petite xs.

Boyfriend Fit Brushed Twill Blazer

I actually ordered and returned this blazer a month ago. I had been on the search for a gray blazer and I love the boyfriend style of this one. I ended up returning it because I needed a bigger size. I debated ordering another one, but I thought I wouldn’t get as much wear out of it considering the temps are dropping and it’s already too cold for just a blazer. Although I’ve moved on to heavier layers, this is a great blazer. Just size up.

BR tuxedo jumpsuit
BR black maxi dress

Tie-Neck Tuxedo Jumpsuit

This could be a great holiday option for those of you who are skipping the dress this year. Can see it paired with a fun clutch and either pumps or strappy heels.

BR x Olivia Palermo Tie-Neck Dress

I would have ordered this if it wasn’t sold out in my size. I love the simple silhouette with the little details. The high-neck is right up my alley and black is extremely versatile. Just imagine how many times you could wear this. Could be super cute with heels for a party or dress it down with booties and a moto jacket.

BR midi sweater dress
BR camel midi skirt

Turtleneck Sweater Midi Dress

I just ordered this in the green color (the only color in petite sizing). I’m all about dresses right now (going on 33 weeks!) and this one is perfect for this time of year! You can dress it down with flats and a long cardigan, or dress it up with a leather jacket and booties. I’m super excited for it’s arrival to see how many different ways I can style it. I ended up sizing up to a petite xs instead of my normal petite xxs. This also comes in gray, black, and camel.

Midi Sweater Skirt

I also just ordered this skirt in camel and gray. It doesn’t have great reviews, but I feel like it could be such a great basic and work seamlessly over my bump (cross your fingers it works). I can already see it paired with other neutrals to create a pretty neutral fall look. Looking forward to wearing these with OTK boots, pumps, and even flats. Ordered both in my normal size, petite xxs.

BR pom pom sweater
BR faux fur poncho

Merino-Blend Pom Pom Crew Sweater

I thought this sweater could be a great piece to have for the holidays. It’s festive without being sequins or glitter. It’s fun, but still modest. I can see it paired with skinny jeans and gray OTK boots.

Cape With Removable Faux Fur

This piece is on my wishlist. I’m super bummed it only comes in this charcoal color in petite sizes (would have loved the camel). Capes are typically one size fits all and the fact that this comes in actual sizes and in a petite option, is huge! The removable faux fur collar makes it super versatile. I have a feeling it will sell out fast.

BR cream mock neck sweater
BR flare sleeve sweater

Merino-Blend High Low Sweater

I’ve been having a love affair with cream sweaters lately and this was looks like a dream. A mock neck with some cut-out details, yes please! Ordered it in an xxs.

Flare-Cuff Crew Sweater

Your basic sweater gets a facelift with fun cuff sleeves. This comes in an assortment of different colors. It’s a nice way to update your work wardrobe for the holidays.

Ruffle-Cuff Sweater Dress

Just styled this dress in green for my holiday content coming up. If you’re looking for a subtle way to dress up for the holidays, this is a great option. The long sleeves off-set the short hem and I love the cuff detail on the sleeve. I went with my normal size, petite xxs. It is form fitting, so if you’re looking for something that just grazes your frame, you may want to size up.

Herringbone Woo-Blend Coat

This coat is a dream! Too bad it doesn’t come in petite sizing (yet!). Pricy, but at 40% or 50%, I think it’s a steal. Herringbone coupled with the longer length, talk about a statement piece!
