Going B-a-n-a-n-a-s 

Posted on Updated on

Sorry, Gap, Inc. Every time I think about going shopping or updating my wardrobe, I think to myself “I need to venture away from my usual closet staples of Banana, Gap and Old Navy.” They’re my crutch! But unlike Gwen Stefani, I guess I am a “holla back girl.” Because I seem to keep holla-ing back every time I get those daily emails! Usually, it’s notices of a great sale or chic ways to wear new arrivals. It’s a mix of both that has me craving some Banana right now!

I’m OBSESSED with gauchos/culottes. I own three pairs plus a gaucho jumpsuit and I canNOT get enough of the trend. So, my heart fluttered when I saw three new styles from Banana.

This gorgeous burgundy pair ($89.50):    

They would look amazing with neutrals, of course. But with summer still lingering around, I think they’d be gorgeous with mustard or blush!

Then I saw this cool relaxed pair ($89.50):  

I love how the website pairs them with heels to keep the look polished! But try some flat sandals for a hip, Euro feel.

And the piece de resistance…this super chic faux leather pair ($98):  

You know leather ain’t going anywhere. So, it’s only natural the hottest new pants of the season are made in the hippest texture around. These would be perfect for a night out!!

As I perused through other new arrivals, these items also caught my eye!


All I have to say is, All I have to say is, “Bravo, Marissa Webb!” Since she has become creative director for Banana, I have fallen in love with one of my fave brands all over again!

And a bonus: right now, until 8/17, there is 40% off at Banana, Gap and Old Navy online with the code TREAT! So it’s the perfect time to give something new a try!

    That first pair needs a home in my closet.

      Thank you!! I’m just debating now how much I want to spend! The three I have now, have all been less than $25, so I can’t see myself paying even half price for any of these from Banana! But I’m willing to wait for clearance!

        Haha I get it, I struggle with the same shopping issue too! I’d wait for clearance as well 😉
