BB's Weekly Link Round-Up: Olivia Palermo for Banana Republic, Genuine Leather at Kohl's and More

Olivia Palermo for Banana Republic, genuine suede shoes and leather bags at Kohl's (yes, Kohl's!) and more must-read fashion news
Shown above: Plaid Jacket // Tie Bow Blouse // Leather Saddle Bag (also in cognac or merlot) // Suede Ankle Boots (available in six colors)


Olivia Palermo is sharing her fall faves as Banana Republic's new style ambassador. I'd love to own this plaid jacket and this tie bow blouse.

Looking for burgundy boots this fall? I tried on this pair at Kohl's and they're amazing. You may want to go up a half size if you plan on wearing thick socks with these. They're available in six colors (including navy, another hard-to-find color) and made of genuine suede for $39.99! I've been saying for years that I'd love to see real leather accessories at Kohl's...so happy to see it!

Speaking of real leather at Kohl's, LC Lauren Conrad has a couple genuine leather handbags in its latest runway collection. This one has a chic Chloe vibe...but would you pay $127 for it? #maybe
