I’m currently obsessed with two things: the color yellow and the entire Banana Republic summer collection. One of my favorite pieces is this yellow leaf pattern dress, which Banana Republic sent me a few weeks ago. If you’re a fan of the classic shift silhouette, this sweet little dress, which also comes in white, belong in your spring and summer wardrobe. The delicate leaf lace overlay is just beautiful, and there are darts at the bust and waist for a figure-flattering fit. Also, it hits mid-thigh, so unless you’re very very tall, it’s 100% appropriate for the office, too. For sizing reference, I’m 5’7″ and I’m wearing a 00. Its full price of $148 is a little pricey for my liking, you can snag this dress for around $75 during one of Banana Republic’s sitewide sales!
This leaf pattern shift dress can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion, which is great for advocate of wardrobe versatility. I wore it with one favorite pair of gladiator wedges and a green clutch to a beach brunch a few weeks ago. Also, one of my favorite accessories of all time is this Out of Office floppy hat. It’s just so sassy, and it’s actually functional for protecting my face on those hot Florida beach days. It’s made by a small yet fabulous Etsy shop called Shop White Elephant. I’ve linked full outfit details, plus a round-up of gems from the Banana Republic summer collection and three other White Elephant floppy sun hats, below!
As promised, here are some of the other adorably sassy floppy hats offered by Shop White Elephant on Etsy. You’ve probably been seeing these pop up all over Instagram, and most links lead directly to a $400 straw hat sold at over-priced department stores. Like seriously? No. These are custom made and range between $60-$80 per hat. You can also customize your own, which I think is pretty fun!
