8 In STYLE

Outfit: Bold Floral

Gold choker necklaceBold floral Banana Republic dress // The Average girl's GuideWhen it’s 95 degrees outside — not an exaggeration — breezy dresses and outfits without a lot of fuss are critical. As much as you know I’m a denim girl, it’s fun to put on a great dress, heels, one or two pieces of jewelry and head out the door for the night.

This dress, part of Banana Republic’s summer collection, is so pretty. I loved the bold floral print and had a hard time in the fitting room deciding between this and its midi wrap version that’s beautiful and shows just a hint of leg when you walk. I was literally getting opinions in the fitting room but ultimately knew that this shorter length was more me and could easily work with flip flops or dress up like this for date night.

A few weeks earlier I was in the store and fell in love with this knotted choker (seriously, ask my friend, Ceci, who witnessed my nerdiness), yet decided to pass because me, a choker? Am I that cool? They’re back in a big way, and I loved this sophisticated take on the trend. Well, you know those things you don’t purchase and dream about? I might have shoved this necklace into an online purchase at Gap and Old Navy for bathing suits for the kiddies (sshhhh, our secret!).

    I LOVE that dress on you. So beautiful and the clutch is so fun with it. I love that necklace! I’m not obsessed with the like suede/leather chokers but that one I’d wear in a heartbeat!

    Totally adore this print – I love easy dresses like this that are also comfortable & could definitely see it dressed down with flat sandals too!

    The explosion of COLOR on your clutch makes me thing of everything summer and bright (Popsicles and pool-sides). The texture is way cool too. Thank you for this post!

    SUCH a pretty print! You look so happy & radiant! I wasn’t sure about the choker trend. Definitely not onboard with the return of the stretchy black ones I wore in middle school, but love this gold one and might have to give them a chance 🙂
