Holiday Style with Banana Republic

I am so excited to be teaming up with Banana Republic today, to style this cute dress for the holiday season.  And while this is such an easy piece to wear a multitude of ways, I am especially loving it mixed with festive plaids for the month of December.  Plus, it has pockets and is on sale for 40% off this weekend (along with everything else at Banana)!

Layers

I’m pretty sure the best part about Fall fashion is layers.  I love throwing on a cute sweater, my favorite surplus jacket, and a cozy scarf.  And these booties?  They are hands down my favorite, and they come in a bunch of colors.  Definitely worth every penny.

Wishing you guys a wonderful weekend!

Sugar Plum

Plum is always a color I’m drawn to during the Fall months.  And one of my favorite ways to wear it, is mixed with shades of pink.  And I’m talking all shades of pink-from blush to hot pink.  Plus, plum always looks great with a bold berry stained lip, which is perfectly on trend (and fun!) for the upcoming season.

Bomber

I love a good jacket.  And this spring, lightweight bomber jackets have definitely been my jam.  Not only are they cute and stylish, but they are the perfect piece to throw on when the weather isn’t quite warm enough to go sleeveless, or to keep you warm on a chilly spring night.

Midi

I am on the short side at 5’3″, so I tend to shy away from midi-style dresses and skirts.  Because of my smaller stature, longer lengths typically tend to swallow me up and not be particularly flattering.  But because it’s a style I love, I do keep trying it in different silhouettes and prints as the seasons change, hoping to find something that will work for me.  And this spring,  I FINALLY found a midi-dress that is not only comfy and has pockets, but the print and style actually work well for my shorter frame.

White Out

I am seriously loving white everything right now.  From dresses, to nails, to tops, to handbags, I’m finding myself gravitating towards it more than usual this season.  And I have a feeling that as the days continue to get warmer, I will keep on reaching for all of the white pieces in my closet. This is definitely a trend that is easy for anyone to get behind!

Geometric

Apparently I wasn’t the only one craving this jacket, because it sold out and was re-stocked twice before I was finally able to order it!  So if you are looking for something fun to add to your closet, this is a fantastic option.  Not only will it go with a ton of different things, but it’s just $30 and really nice quality! Can’t beat that!

#itsBanana

Banana Republic has always been a staple among my favorite places to shop.  But lately, I have found myself shopping there even more than usual.  And not just for clothing, but for accessories and shoes as well.  So when they recently reached out to see if I wanted to do a collaboration and have one of their in-house stylists send me a couple of items to style on my blog, I immediately obliged.  And I have to say, the stylist couldn’t have picked two more perfect items for me.  I have already gotten so much wear out of this lightweight merino sweater (I am also in LOVE with the color).  And these fringe sandal couldn’t be more on point for the season.

So whether Banana is a favorite of yours (like mine!), or you haven’t checked out a Banana in a while, be sure to pop into your local store, or stop by online to check out the rest of Banana’s amazing Spring lineup.  There are so many good things to choose from, I don’t even know where to start!

Easter Traditions

Every year since I can remember, I have looked forward to getting a new dress for Easter Sunday.  When I was growing up, my mom would always take me shopping for something new, which most likely involved gloves and a bonnet.  And to this day, it’s a tradition that I still adhere to and love (well maybe minus the gloves and the bonnet!).

And this year, when I started looking for a dress, Chic Wish was the first place I started.  Lately, they have become my go-to for pretty dresses, skirts, and oh-so feminine tops.  They offer gorgeous pieces that are fantastic quality without breaking the bank.  So if you are looking for something pretty and unique, be sure to check them out.

DSC_6183 DSC_6158 DSC_6146 DSC_6118 DSC_6153 DSC_6144 DSC_6171 DSC_6143 DSC_6157 DSC_6170

Dress: Chic Wish c/o AND it’s under $55!!! (it runs a little small in the arms/shoulders; I am normally a size small, or 4/6, and am wearing a large in this dress-but the quality is FANTASTIC!)

Bracelets: Tiffany and Co., Stella & Dot, JCrew

Sunnies: Prada (obsessed!)

Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (old), LOVING this

Heels: Banana Republic (SUPER comfy!), also own and love these

And on a more serious note, if you live in the SLC and are looking for a place to attend an Easter service, or if you are just curious about Jesus and a God who is crazy about YOU (no matter what baggage you THINK you might have), then come, just as YOU are, for what is bound to be an amazing experience at Antioch SLC (and if you aren’t in the SLC, that’s ok-there are Antioch Churches all over the country!).  To be 100% real with you guys, the past few months have been proven to be a pretty challenging season in my personal life, and I have found so much grace and solace through Antioch.  It’s truly a special place, and I have a feeling Easter is going to be pretty incredible. The service is at 5pm on Sunday at the Falls Event Center at Trolley Square.  I will be there and would love to see some of your beautiful faces!  So be sure to come and say “hi” if you decide to check it out.

Antioch

Happy Friday, my sweet friends, and happy Easter weekend!  Love you guys!!!

Favorites

Not all outfits are created equal.  There are always some that I love more than others, and this is definitely one of those.  Perhaps it’s because this dress reminds me of something that I wore when I auditioned for collegiate music programs back in the day, or perhaps it’s because it incorporates so many of my favorite things (surplus vest, yellow pumps, Panama hat, dress with pockets, etc.) into one look.  Whatever the reason, this is just one of those outfits that really feels like “me”, and one I can’t wait to wear again!
