Last month, when I bought the Ann Taylor muse print dress, there was an Ann Taylor jacket that I contemplated purchasing as well. The jacket was a perfect complement for the dress.

I got the dress on clearance for $39. The jacket, also on clearance, cost about $80-$90 though. So, I passed on the blazer because I knew I had lots of items in my closet that could nicely top the dress.

Last week, on my way home from an event out in St. Charles, I decided to stop by the St. Louis Mills, an outlet mall here in St. Louis. This mall used to be one of my favorite shopping spots when I lived in St. Louis before, but it is so far from my house now that I rarely visit.
The mall houses a Banana Republic Factory Store. So, I stopped in and discovered that many of the work separates there were marked down by an additional 70%.

This blazer immediately grabbed my attention because it was similar to the Ann Taylor blazer that I passed on. So, I envisioned it pairing well with the Ann Taylor muse print dress. With a final price of $43.80, a price more in line with my budget, I bought the blazer. Here it is worn with the dress.
