Last weekend my local Banana Republic invited me into the store to try on their new pant collection and I was blown away by their denim! I selected these raw-hem distressed skinnies but then ended up going back for this shirt and a pair of white stain-resistant skinnies as well. I HATE buying pants (#pearshapedproblems) but these all had the perfect amount of stretch and were forgiving in all the right places. I would say size down in the raw-hem version as mine have already stretched a bit. I'd go true to size in the white jeans.
I've also been layering this crescent necklace with my favorite Julie Vos piece and it's been a nice break from the heavy statement earrings I typically wear. I plan to snag these tiny studs next as a good alternative to pearls.
In other news I discovered this amazing location via my best friend Eddie (he's my favorite Pinner of all time) and have been meaning to try to find it for myself. I lucked out that he happened to be downtown last Sunday and volunteer to show us the way. I can't wait to check it out again when it's warmer out. Eddie and I are on a quest of sorts to find additional hidden gems in Hartford - if you know of any let me know!
