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!).

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.

Absolutely love both of these looks! BR continues to deliver. It’s crazy, a year or two ago I hardly went in there and now it’s often my first stop, particularly when I’m looking for a dress for interesting blouse.
Totally agree with you – I’ve been shopping there SO much this year. Their dresses in particular fit me better than any other brand – I have one from 4 years ago and it’s still my absolute favorite!

Killing it AGAIN! Such well-coordinated outfits and so perfectly suited to your taste. And of course, you look amazing as usual. I guess I should check out BR – I’ve honestly NEVER purchased from them before (because I’ve always though their style was a little too “business” for me) but I will definitely give them a try. The fact that they have petite is enough to get me in the door!
They have totally transformed their brand over the last two years and they have so many amazing styles right now! Definitely check them out – I have several of petite friends who SWEAR by their pants!

Was JUST thinking this morning that I need a pants overhaul. Perfect!!!
