It’s that time of year here in Oklahoma that some evenings you have to have the heat running to stay comfortable at night but run the air conditioning during the day or it gets hot and stuffy, it snowed back east over the weekend and a chance of more snow later this week. It’s the same way with clothing, you leave in the morning wearing long sleeves or a jacket and come home later with your sleeves rolled up or the jacket in the back seat, Banana Republic has some great pieces to help us navigate the crazy weather from Winter to Spring and early Summer. Take a look at these “New Arrival” lightweight jackets, sweaters and tops and see if there’s anything you might need for warm days and cool nights, Enjoy!!!
