This spring thing? It's Banana!


When I opened the box from Banana Republic with a squeal of delight, I was pleased to see a vibrant cobalt and an army green – two versatile colors that I welcome for spring.

The vibrant cobalt revealed itself to be a silky maxi dress with a V-neckline, cinched waist and two sexy slits. In my hands, this dress was clearly eye-catching, but on, it made me feel like a goddess. The smooth material feels luxurious and the way the skirt ripples with movement is mesmerizing. The neckline is suggestive but provides great coverage and the double slits offer an exciting peek among the full, fluttering skirt.

Worn with a nature-inspired gold necklace, navy and white sandals and a floral clutch that pulls it all together, this look is fit for the goddess in you. Add a white sunhat and the look is lovely for an outdoor festival or day party.

I recently wore this dress simply with a gold charm necklace and ivory cardigan on Easter Sunday and received rave reviews.


The army green unfolded to a pair of straight-legged chinos with a folded hem. I so appreciate the versatility of pants that are not jeans or black, but still work with neutrals and colors alike. These pants are just that. The olive color can be worn with a variety of tops. They can be dressed up with high-heeled sandals or dressed down with flat booties.

Paired with a pretty white lace crop top and a pearl necklace, this look is ideal for a date night this spring. In fact, I wore a similar outfit on my birthday!


A knotted sleeveless top, snake print clutch, gladiator heels and gold accessories take the chinos from classic to edgy.
