Styling the Banana Republic Pieced Jacquard Top

You may have glimpsed today’s featured outfit in my recap of the blogger experience during Saint Louis Fashion Week (STLFW). I wore this look for the day activities on the second day of STLFW. It was actually warm enough to wear a sleeveless top, no additional layers required.

Top—Banana Republic

Jeans—Target ℅ Denizen (under $30)

Shoes—J.Crew (old) | option

Bag—Rebecca Minkoff | this color on sale

Earrings—J.Crew (old) | option

Rings—Kendra ScottKendra Scott

Watch—Movado | Skagen option

This entire look is centered around the belted top, a top I instantly fell for because of its striking print. Actually, I was torn between the pieced jacquard top and the pieced jacquard dress. The top ultimately won because it was a more flattering fit for me than the drop waist dress. I figured I would be able to wear the top more often too.

I paired the pieced jacquard top with my current favorite jeans that just happen to retail for under $30.  A new curvy version of these jeans (also in medium wash) recently released, and I’m eager to try them on to compare the fit.

An old favorite pair of earrings, the J.Crew mixed media earrings, were perfect for accessorizing this casual look. I haven’t been drawn to the J.Crew jewelry collections this year. That was until the store launched this fabulous feather collar necklace earlier this week. I can’t wait to see that in person.

I packed all my essentials in my everyday tote, the Rebecca Minkoff unlined tote. Getting the bag in this port color was a good move because it goes with everything. If you’ve been watching the emerald color, it’s now 50% off! If you’re a fan of Rebecca Minkoff bags, you should check out the online sample sale, offering up to 75% off some popular styles.

Have a wonderful weekend!

    I actually have the grey skirt version of this top on my wishlist! It's so hard to choose from all of the pieces, they're all so great!
