Banana’s Spring Sale

So Banana is having a pretty good sale on some of their spring lovelies, and I must say, I’ve seen several things that have me thinking.  I’ve been wanting to get some new staple pieces for spring, but with a cross country move coming up, I’m trying not to spend a fortune.  This sale might be just what I need…

br719954-00vliv01 I love this Ruffle-neck Tank because its lightweight, long, and has that cute ruffle detailing.  These types of pieces work well for me because I can wear them jeans or a skirt, under a cami or blazer or on their own.  The tank comes in a variety of colors, but I think not quite gray, not quite purple color is my favorite.

br719944-00vliv01This Silk Twist Halter Dress just shouts spring!  I love the color, the cut, and the fun detailing at the neckline.  I’m wondering though, how much wear I’ll get out dresses like this in Chicago?  In Texas, you can make dresses like this work 8 months out of the year, especially if you’re creative with cardigans and blazers.  But in the a place with four real seasons, is a dress like this practical for more than a month?

br719671-01vliv01 I’ve had my eye on a thin knit vest for months, and I think this Wool/Cotton Zip-Front Vest might just be the magic winner!  It would look great with jeans, over a dress, with a skirt…I can’t think of anywhere I wouldn’t wear it!  I also think it would be something a little more Chicago-season friendly, as it would transition really well into fall.  It also comes in black, but I think the gray is much lighter for spring.

br646188-00vliv01 Yall already know about my newfound obsession with blazers, so its no surprise that this White Blazer makes me giddy.  The cut and color are perfect for warmer weather, and I also love the camel colored buttons.  This also inspires me to try the belted blazer look.  Me likie!

br743412-00vliv01 Last but not least, these Dancing Charm Earrings are meant to be mine.  I love love love the color and think its great for injecting a fresh bit of spring into some of my current staples.  I moved away from the big earrings for fall and winter in favor of headbands and statement necklaces, but spring has me coming back to my big earring roots.  After all, I am from Texas :)  Love these!

Are you looking to give your wardrobe staples a punch of spring?  If so, what your strategy?  Do share, I need a good game plan.
