Two things about this dress: 1. It’s the perfect midi dress for fall and winter. 2. It’s practically three dresses in one…So what’s not to love? I don’t usually wear midi dresses because I’m short and think they make me look frumpy, but this one was too cute not to try on at Anthropologie. I couldn’t help but love everything about it: from the floral, to the embroidery, to the material, and the layers. It’s the perfect transitional dress from summer to fall/winter in Dallas. Now let’s talk about how it’s

Now let’s talk about how it’s three dresses in one. The layers detach so you can style it in all different ways. Here’s how I’m thinking of styling it into three different dresses: 1. Combined like I did in this post. 2. With a black slip under the sheer embroidered layer and some cute pumps for a unique take on a LBD. 3. With a chunky, cozy brown sweater over the floral layer underneath and a pair of thick socks and brown booties. The list goes on. I literally came up with five more ways to style it while I’m typing this post. You’ll see some of these styled looks in the weeks to come! Trust me when I say your closet needs this dress.

I’ve always been a huge fan of Banana Republic, so when they asked if I would like to participate in their summer campaign and style up a few pieces from their collection I couldn’t resist! Once I saw this dress on their site, I knew I needed it. I love the color and floral print, the perfect combination for summer. The cut, length, and material are all perfect as well. Did I mention that it has pockets? That makes it the ultimate summer dress. It’s also the perfect transitional piece to mix into your fall wardrobe. Click here to make your closet happy.

I was also super excited about finally getting my feet into some super cute lace up flats. I had the hardest time picking which color I wanted, I literally had every color in my shopping cart. They are SUPER comfortable and flattering. I always am skeptical when it comes to lace up shoes because I’m short and worry that they will make me look even shorter than I actually am, but these are so great!

I shot these photos on my recent trip to Ireland when I was staying at Ashford Castle. I couldn’t have asked for a better backdrop for this post.

Thanks for freshening up my summer style, Banana Republic!

Taking you back down to Monaco for a quick outfit post. Though it was warm, it was grey and rainy so I figured the day needed a pop of color so I threw on my favorite colorful Hermès scarf, bold yellow dress, and a stack of gorjana power gemstones. I can’t think of a better combination to brighten things up.
