Banana Republic Dress c/o // Madewell Transport Tote // Raen Sunglasses // J.Crew Heels, similar
There are many ways to get dressed up in my opinion. There’s jeans and a cute top, a short dress, and then the main event- a maxi dress. A maxi dress is typically my favorite way. It instantly makes you feel more glamorous than before. Now I don’t have a ton of occasions to get dressed up for so I made the small ones I have count. I truly believe you can (almost) never be overdressed. I am the chronic over dresser in my family and it’s a label I accept with pride.
This Banana Republic dress is on another level though. The pattern is killer and gives major 1970’s vibes in my opinion. I love how the belt matches the dress and magically defines my waist. It’s something that is always a must since I’m on the shorter side. I feel like I should be at a glamorous party in Palm Springs sipping cocktails. I must try and make that happen this summer. In all seriousness, this dress is a total win and one I expect to pull out time and time again. It’s too good not to!
Banana Republic has some really beautiful statement pieces right now! Currently obsessed with this top, these slides, this dress, this dress, this skirt (I guess I’m newly obsessed with ruffles!), and this tote. Seriously difficult to not just put every. single. thing.
Turns out I’m excited about having all the ruffles in my life. This is new to me and takes me back to about 2010, anyone else? What trends are you most looking forward to rocking as the temperatures rise?

When I love a piece of clothing, I will go to no end to get it home and in my closet. I’ve never been one to shy away from buying something just because it’s not the most comfortable thing around. The exciting thing about these pants? They’re more comfortable than most of my pajama pants. I’ve also not been one to shy away from something because it’s too comfortable. Despite being possibly the most comfortable pants on the planet, they still manage to be quite flattering. The wide crop leg hits me right at the sweet spot and still magically elongates my rather short legs. But lets not only focus on the amazing pants- the top is not to be forgotten. I have a feeling it will be on repeat all summer long. I can already imagine wearing it with jeans, shorts, skirts, you name it and I’ll wear it. I’m currently doing my best to not purchase this top and have a matching set. We’ll see how long that lasts though.
Is it just me or has Anthropologie been killing it lately? Every time I pop in there I can’t leave empty handed. It’s a habit that my husband is not all that fond of, but I sure am!
