I’m making a concerted effort to add pattern and color to my wardrobe. I am such a neutrals girl! This gorgeous, printed pleated midi with contrasting stripe fits the bill perfectly. And best of all, it is currently on sale for $75! In fact, Banana Republic just announced that all dresses are $75 today!
I love the traditional paisley pattern and the graphic triple stripe. It makes the dress a little less sweet and more tailored in my opinion. The pleats make it very feminine and the slit is a perfect accent. I’ve copied the stripe by layering my new Tory Burch Denim Blue Surrey Watch and my white Hermes bracelet. It also comes in this beautiful blue color. This dress and much, much more are 40% off right now at Banana Republic.
The blue scalloped clutch is the perfect accent. I’ll be wearing this dress Saturday night as we celebrate two of my girls’ birthdays and my fabulous dad’s retirement. So excited for him!
I’m excited to be participating in the Banana Republic What Moves You? campaign. I’ve been thinking a lot about this and shared some in this post but more recently I’ve been thinking about what motivates me to really move, to be physically more active. Right now it is my health. I’ve had a truly terrible bout of allergies and maybe asthma for about 6 weeks this spring. I had another weird health thing a few months ago and I’m thinking I’ve been taking my good health a little too much for granted.
So What Moves Me? Staying healthy! If you follow on Instagram and watch the Instagram Stories, I’ve started a new work out “routine” and am committing to 4 days a week to start. It feels so good! What Moves You? I’d truly love to know what motivates you to get moving so please leave a comment below.
Hooray, it’s almost Friday!
