#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!

Blush

This jacket is about the best thing in my closet right now.  If it looks familiar, that’s because I own it in black and in a burgundy color and wear them both all of the time.  In fact, I am in NYC right now and my black version was the first thing I packed for my trip.  And the good news is, Nordstrom has it fully stocked in black, cognac, and this blush color right now.  The fit is amazing, the faux leather is gorgeous quality, AND it’s under $100!  I would highly recommend adding this piece (in at least one, if not two!), colors to your closet this season.  It’s one of those classic staples that you will wear again and again (all year round), and I just can’t say enough good things about it!

Brights

Recently I went through a phase where I couldn’t stop wearing neutrals.  Yet suddenly, I can’t seem to get enough of bright colors.  But I definitely can’t blame it on the spring-like weather, because it’s dumping snow here in Utah again this week!!!!! Regardless, it definitely feels good to be incorporating some brights (and fun print mixing) back into my wardrobe again, even if it is freezing!!!

Color

I am always looking for fun and unique pieces to add to my wardrobe.  And when I spotted this shirt, I immediately loved it because not only is it super different than anything I own, but it is also a totally classic silhouette.  Ant that, my friends, makes it an easy top to style, while still upping the ante a bit.  PLUS, it’s great quality and under $25!

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!!!

Neon

You all probably know by now what a huge fan I am of army green.  But what you might not know, is that one of my favorite ways to wear it is with neon or a bright pop of color.  It’s a really easy way to change-up pieces you already have in your closet and give them a fresh new look.

Plus, I still can’t get over this studded jacket.  I’ve had it for 2 years now and I wear it all the time.  I would highly recommend it if you have been eyeing it.  It literally goes with everything and is fantastic quality.  You can also see how I styled it in the black here.

And can we just talk about the SNOW on the ground for a minute?  So crazy.  It was 70 on Monday, and then we had a huge storm roll in on Tuesday.  My poor flowers, and all of the blossoms on the trees!  Fortunately it’s supposed to warm up again over the weekend.  Just in time for Easter!

Staples

Yesterday I talked a little bit about the importance of having balance between classic and fashion pieces in your wardrobe.  But another important closet category that I didn’t mention, is staple pieces.  If you have been following this blog for any amount of time, then you know staples are something I talk about a fair amount, i.e. denim jackets, surplus vests, nude pumps, black handbags, dark wash skinny jeans, etc.  And so today, I wanted to highlight one of my personal favorite closet staples, and that is a casual long-sleeved black dress.

This closet staple is the perfect blank canvas, is easy (and comfy!) to throw on and go, and can be styled in a plethora of different ways.  So if you don’t own a casual long-sleeved black dress, then you are in luck, because I’ve listed my favorites below!

Classic

In my opinion, an ideal wardrobe has a good mix of both classic and fashion pieces. And while it’s fairly easy for me to list off my favorite places to pick up great fashion items (ASOS, Nordstrom, Express, H&M, Zara, etc.), I think it can sometimes be a bit trickier to find a tried and true classic resource.

So when I was introduced to Cabi clothing last year, I was thrilled because I knew it was going to be my go-to brand to fill in the classic pieces that my closet was missing.  And while you’ve probably seen me post a few Cabi items on the blog here and there, this navy jacket has got to be my favorite purchase so far.  It is a perfect staple jacket year round, and looks fantastic with a multitude of different outfits.  Plus the fabric is fantastic and ideal for traveling!

Girly

I’m not the most quintessentially “girly” dresser.  And while I love dresses and skirts, I typically tend to gravitate towards denim.  However, when I spotted this cute skirt, tied with a bow, I knew it would be a great piece to add to my wardrobe.  Especially since it’s under $30!

Plus how great are these Valentino dupes?  Not only are they super comfy (and cute!), but they are under $70!

The Bomb

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of a great surplus jacket.  And you know what else I love?  A good bomber jacket.  I really find that this time of year, jackets are just my jam.  Whether you wear one with a dress, or style it back to jeans, jackets are the quintessential layering piece for the always unpredictable Spring weather!DSC_5376 DSC_5375 DSC_5409 DSC_5437 DSC_5431 DSC_5403 DSC_5399 DSC_5424 DSC_5414 DSC_5469Jacket: Make Me Chic c/o (wearing a size small for reference)

Dress: Nordstrom (obsessed with these AND they are under $50! see how I styled it in pink here, and in red here)

Necklaces: Stella & Dot (old), LOVE this

Cuff: Stella & Dot
