Inspired: Banana Republic Loves Khaki

I got an email this week from Banana Republic highlighting the awesomeness of coral (yes, I have been craving it for awhile). I was considering writing a post on affordable coral pieces when Mary beat me to the punch (see her fabulous post here). I went to look at all their 'outfits we love' section and thought something other than coral stood out. Guess what guys? Banana Republic loves khaki.

I'll be the first to admit I have had a rough relationship with the safari bound fabric. I even recently told a friend that "khaki is gross". This is because my experience with khaki revolved around ill-fitting pieces that made me feel less than lady-like. So, here are a few budget options for updated khaki:

1 - Sincerely Jacket - Francesca's - $29.98 (Orig. $44.00)
2 - Fatigue Skirt - Gap - $29.99 (Orig. $49.50)
3 - Calvin Klein Crepe Shirtdress - Nordstrom - $46.90 (Orig. $118.00)
4 - Converse Chino - Target - $9.78 (Orig. $27.99)
5 - Mossimo Boyfriend Blazer - Target - $29.99
6 - Apt. 9 Bermuda Shorts - Kohl's - $21.99 (Orig. $40.00)

And a few brightly colored pieces that would really pop against that neutral backdrop:

7 - Apt 9 Coral Beaded Cluster Necklace - $17.42 (Orig. $26.00)
8 - Twist Fringe Eloise Scarf - Fred Flare - $18.00
9 - Tokai Top - Quiksilver - $23.40 (Orig. $78.00)
10 - Twist Neck Pull Over - AT LOFT - $20.00 (Orig. $34.50)
11 - Faux Leather Satchels - Old Navy - $14.99 (Orig. $34.50)
12 - Croft & Barrow Shirred Top - Kohl's - $11.99 (Orig. $20.00)
13 - Canvas Ribbon Flats - $22.99 - Charlotte Russe

Thanks for reading,

Happy Shopping!


  1. We must ALL be psychic because this weekend I was shopping for fabric and kept being drawn to bright corals and yellows. Great minds think alike, I guess!

  2. Yeah, love it all. BR beats JCrew this year. Or maybe I'm just sick of ruffles!

  3. I'm not really impressed with their "chinos". I look at them and I say outloud BLAH.

  4. I've been wanting some more khaki in my wardrobe lately!

  5. That Calvin Klein shirtdress is adorable! Sometimes I have these moments when I look at things and my brain instantly goes, "Bing!" and I know I love something -- this was one of those times. Great find!

  6. I love that Fred Flare scarf! Yellow is such a happy color. Can't wait for summer!!!
