The wardrobe item I’ve been most excited about adding to my closet this summer has been this long floral dress from Banana Republic. I snagged it during a weekend sale when I was in Charleston scouting wedding venues (more about that experience here!) and have since worn it in Charleston, in NYC, and out to dinner at Nick & Toni’s in East Hampton.
At 5’4”, I’m not that tall so I sometimes question wearing long dresses as I think I look taller when my legs are visible. However, whenever I wear long dresses or maxi dresses I’m always happy I did because it’s so fun to swing around in a long, ladylike dress! This long floral dress has lots of twirling opportunities and looks so pretty bouncing around when I walk.
I love the floral print – let’s face it, I love florals – against the white background color of the dress. It’s so bright for summer! I made the look even brighter by adding a bright pink clutch (old – similar, similar) and tossing on a matching pink statement bracelet from J.Crew (on sale and also comes in a necklace!). I can never wear enough pink!
You’ve seen me wear these Joie block heels a handful of time this spring and summer (here). They are my favorite. The sandals come in a tall heel too, woop! I’ve had a number of friends see them and buy them too because they are so practical and cute. Joie shoes always have the most comfy soles too.
Banana Republic has had really gorgeous dresses and pieces all spring and summer long! I wore this ruffle dress in Charleston and also have my eye in this polka dot dress for upcoming travels.
As I mentioned here, I accidentally took last week off from blogging. I was in Aspen for the 4th of July for almost a week and didn’t know the ranch we were staying at didn’t have wifi until I got there. I then went home for 24 hours and hopped on an international flight (no wifi over the ocean) so I just couldn’t keep up as planned! Thanks so much for sticking with me! I have some exciting posts coming this week! xx
