Simply Sophisticated

I'm excited to be partnering with Banana Republic again today to share with you two new looks that are perfect for wearing now & transitioning into the summer months.  As you know, I've been a long-time fan of the brand & I've been so impressed with all the new arrivals I've seen in my local store & online.  I know many of you have mentioned how much you appreciate that they carry a wide variety of petite & tall options as well.  For today's post, I chose to focus on stand-out pieces that have a more polished vibe & I'm highlighting a few more of my favorite styles for you below.

I'm a sucker for a great fit & flare dress and this one is absolute perfection - I mean, how stunning is this floral print?!  This is such a flattering silhouette, just the right length & it's fully lined.  I love the little cutout details in back and, because this is a racerback cut, they added those hidden bra strap stays so you can wear a normal bra without having to worry about the straps showing.  I personally feel like every dress should have those sewn in! Other styles that I saw & loved were this floral dress, this lace dress & this LBD (so chic!).

What I'm wearing:
c/o Banana Republic Floral Racerback Dress (wearing size 0; also in petite & tall), 
Ann Taylor Tassel EarringsBP Lula Heels (similar here or flat option here), 
Similar Clutch, Similar Cuff, Lips: CoverGirl Temptress, Nails: Essie Cascade Cool

As I was browsing through the new arrivals, this striped maxi skirt instantly caught my eye.  It's different from anything else in my closet and the draped fabric gives it such nice movement.  Even though the shape is somewhat sophisticated, I think the bold nautical stripes give it a laid-back feel.  Like the dress, this is also fully lined but very lightweight & easy to move in.  For reference, I'm 5'8" & wearing 4" heels here so you can better gauge the length.  If you're worried about the horizontal stripes adding width to your frame, this maxi skirt is similar, but has small vertical stripes.  

What I'm wearing:
