Minty Deliciousness

As promised, here are some IRL's of Banana Republic's Silk Ruffle Front Top. I can not say enough about how much I love this top. Hopefully they will restock them online soon but there were plenty still in more store. The color is gorgeous and I love the fit. There is just the right amount of ruffling. I can't wait to find more ways to style it! This is a Medium and it has a very relaxed fit. I tried on the small and it fit closer to my waist and hips but I figured since I would wear this more often casually I was more comfortable with the looser fit and the small would not have withstood any shrinkage and that was not a risk I was willing to take!

Also, I wanted to mention that they gave me an amazing coupon pack in store when every Wednesday in March I can get 40% off a regular priced item. Making my wishlist now!

Here it is styled for work, I paired it with some black pants and a J Crew cardigan that I believe only was in store. I really like the pairing of the mint color with J Crew's shadow.
Next up, how I wore it casually today. I had to be out the door by 7:30 with all the kids dressed and ready so there was no time for styling or accessories. You know it is a great top when you can throw it on with jeans and a military jacket and still feel like a stylin' momma!
Thank-you for all your prayers for Chelsea, they made an arrest this morning but until she is found, there is always hope.

Such a pretty color!!! You know, your military jacket reminds me of a Limited jacket I've had for several years...hmmmm...i may need to break that baby out and start wearing it again. I love the mix of the feminine color and ruffle with the toughness of the jacket!

Love the military jacket!! And as great as it is they have an arrest in Chelsea's disappearance, it's also a bad sign that he's already been charged with murder. Their is always hope she's alive, we can only pray. If not, then she's in a much better place than us.

I love the jacket too and the awesome ruffle top goes without saying! What happened with Chelsea? I'm going to look it up online to see what I can hear.

Thanks everyone! The jacket is actually from Banana Republic circa 2007, they have a similar one in gray here http://bananarepublic.gap.com/browse/product.do?searchCID=25789&pid=719841&scid=719841002&vid=1

As for Chelsea, they arrested a sexual offender who was staying with his parents nearby and have charged him with her rape and murder based on clothing of hers that they found. He may also be involved with a girl who went missing last year in the next town. I hope he decides to talk so the parents of these two girls can get some answers.

The top is very pretty. I've seen it in-person. It looks good how they styled it w/a tan leather jacket.
