My Banana Republic "After 5 Event" Attire

As part of my “After 5 Event” hosting duties, I had the opportunity to style an outfit from Banana Republic’s always-tempting selection. I seized the chance to snatch up a much-needed summer straw fedora and some neon stripes. Kind of fell in love with this neat little ladylike raffia purse and this military-esque vest thing, too.

In retrospect, I wonder if I’m not one pole short of some fine fishing garb, but this will have to be contemplated further at a later date.

Well, a fly pole and a pair of waders would really have completed the look. Seriously, though, nice outfit. I really like the juxtaposition of the little ladylike bag and the military-inspired vest.

I love the clean lines of the vest, even with all those pockets, it feels very fuss-free.

and the straw fedora is just adorable.

Aren't you too cute? I am hosting the After 5 event in Boston and picked the same vest. Trying not to be totally jealous of how you styled it;)

The vest is awesome. You styled it wonderfully.

Gorgeous pretty lady! Love the pink stripes against the military vest. xo

This is such a great look! I love the purse and the striped top. It's a great spring/summer look that's styled very well.

This is the perfect combination of Banana Republic and District of Chic. Republic of Chic? Banana District?

Love the neon stripes! You look so cute in a hat 🙂

I pass by a BR on my way home from the gym and I've been eyeing this top for a while. I should pop in one of these days (maybe before my work out so I'm not covered in sweat) so I can scoop it up. Also, these jeans look amazing on you. The photo of you crossing the street – your legs look about a million miles long!

That vest is such a great piece!
