Banana Republic: Boyfriend Military Jacket + 25% off Online!

First off, Banana Republic is offering 25% off all full-priced orders onilne only today with code: *BRSAVE25*

So, what should you get?  Well, I got this jacket last week and LOVE it!

Available online in Smoking Gray and also in a light khaki in stores.

IMO, they did not do a very good job styling this jacket online.  It's much more striking in person and the color is much darker than what it looks like in the online pic.  The light khaki is very nice and cute if you need it, but seeing as I have about 100 jackets (you think I'm kidding) the gray seemed like something I at least had LESS of at the moment!  It also looked awesome over the JC coral tunic top I had on that day (see it in this post)... but I forgot to snap a pic of that!

It was finally warm enough last week that I was able to wear this out to dinner one night!
Scarf: ON last year
Pants: Maternal America Black Denim Leggings
Bracelet: F21

Closer up of the front.  I have the sleeves rolled up, but you don't have to.  Also, I could unsnap the buttons on the pockets to make it look more 'crumpled' I guess.

Another outfit shot with my new Dooney handbag (see it here) ... LOVE the nylon, brown on black accents, and hot pink interior lining!  I found this style to be MUCH more practical than what I actually went to buy, the Longchamp bag, which is basically just a big duffle-like bag.  This bag has dividers, cell pockets, zip pockets, etc...

Left open...

Pulled open a little more .... it will actually stay this way if you want to show more of your underneath shirt

There is a little bit of elastic, plus a internal string belt, that helps really cinch the waist in on this coat.  Now, remember, I don't really have a waist right now, but this is pretty flattering in both the front and back.  If nothing else, Banana creates the hands-down most flattering-fromt-the-back coats and jackets over everyone else!

Are you planning on buying anything with the 25% off promo today?
