BRafter5 Recap + I'm Off (See Jane Skedaddle)

c/o Banana Republic vest + necklace, BR dress (old), Steve Madden wedges, c/o Foley + Corinna bag
                                                                                                                                       
A huge thank you to Banana Republic for allowing me to participate in the Banana Republic After 5 event!  I had so much fun mingling with shoppers and other Chicago bloggers while checking out the new summer line.  I loved helping ladies pick out new wedges or summertime appropriate work attire (business casual is my specialty).  All in all, it was a great experience and it was great to have Audrey from A Lovely Escape with me.  Here's a photo recap of the event:

the lovely Audrey
Chan Luu + Banana Republic bracelets
Taylor (Curly in the City) + Kim (Anthroholic)
helping to pick an outfit
Kiley (A Sequin Dress at Breakfast)+ her friends
Also, I will be absent until after Memorial Day as I'm getting married a week from today!  It seems like just yesterday that Eric proposed and now the big day is nearly here.  I have some great guest bloggers lined up to entertain you while I'm gone--I know you'll love them.

AdiĆ³s!
