Khaki Slim Fit Shirt c/o / Khaki Asymmetrical Ruffle Skirt c/o / Nude Espadrille Wedges / White Handbag / Horn Bangles / Lip Color in Santa Ynez & Gloss in Bare Shimmer

You know I’m a big fan of Banana Republic.  They have continued to hit the mark season after season for quite a while now.  I’m excited to partner with them today to bring you their new arrivals focusing on New Neutrals – their Color of the Month – and New Arrivals.

The minute I saw this skirt, I knew it was for me.  Classic with a modern twist.  It reminded me of this gorgeous skirt from last fall.  I’m wearing it here as a column of color but plan on wearing it with a great white top and a pop of color, too.  I got so many compliments on the long version I’m excited to have this very wearable shorter version.  I wore it last night to dinner and I’ll be wearing it this weekend to a dinner party. The silk version of this top is gorgeous and I have it in my cart.  I’d love it with white jeans.  This style jean is one of my favorites.  They fit so well and do truly “sculpt” your derrier!

After all the rain we’ve been having, I’m really ready for spring and I’m sure it will be a gorgeous one!  This pretty floral dress will fit right in.  We’re in for a bit more so I hope you’ve looked at this post.  A BR Trench is a must!

Banana Republic is currently offering 40% off Must-Have items for Spring!  No code needed.

Stay dry!
