Banana Republic Out of Office Tee

The "Out of Office" that Got Away

With one of my besties visiting me for an extended girls' weekend, we inevitably found ourselves at Rockefeller Center as most tourists on a shopping spree do.  When I spotted this "Out of Office" tee in Banana Republic's window I made a beeline for the door - of course I just had to have it!

Much to my dismay, this one got away.   Apparently I'm not the only one who revels in the idea of declaring freedom-from-desk squarely across my chest - the sales reps said they just couldn't keep this gem in stock at any of their stores.  Not surprising, considering it was also brilliantly styled.  Paired with denim more like tailored pants than jeans, rolled at the cuff over black leather booties, and a perfectly casual jacket, the overall look was cool enough for galavanting around town yet ironically office-appropriate.

Meanwhile the other windows pulled from luxury high-fashion inspiration, with Banana Republic's own version of the Valentino Rock Stud heel and Chanel-esque quilted patterns.
