Shaking Things Up For Spring
The Banana Republic team chose an adorable burgundy flounce dress and the coolest blue snake-print sandals, and I couldn’t have been happier with their selections. Was I terrified of the decidedly loose drop-waist? You betcha. I would have absolutely taken a look at the Foulard Flounce Dress from Banana Republic (currently 30% off + also available in black) if I saw it in-store. The colors scream FSU game day (GO NOLES!), and the fluttery skirt is a girly-girl’s dream. With that being said, I wouldn’t have even tried it on because I would’ve assumed that it wouldn’t work for my body type.
When I tried it on at home, I was so shocked that the design was actually flattering on my 5’3 and curvy frame, and I immediately noticed the comfortable fabric and versatile design. I kept things simple in today’s look to show off the feminine cut of this dress, but I’m already imagining the possibilities. It would look darling for Spring Break paired with gold gladiator sandals, but I think it would also be perfect for fall football games with a chunky sweater and cognac boots.Banana Republic Eryn heeled sandals are definitely a must-have for spring and summer. The lace-up detailing is completely on-trend, and the design is well-made and extremely comfortable. While I love the pop of color from the blue snakeskin, I just bought the same style in gold for my upcoming cruise! These gorgeous shoes also come in nude and red, and I highly recommend that you pick up a pair! The quality is fantastic, and the soft leather doesn’t require any break-in time.

This mini-styling session has given me so much inspiration for my spring wardrobe. I’ve recently donated, thrown away, or sold almost 50% of my clothing and accessories, so my closet is definitely ready for a few new items. Right now I have my eye on this floral beauty! Ok, ok, I have my eye on the entire dress section at Banana Republic!
