Colorblock maxi dress





Banana Republic/ Milly Collection colorblock dress
Tasha chain link bracelet
Premier Designs bracelet (option)
Chanel classic flap
Alex Marie (Dillard's) sandals (option)

I ordered this dress as soon as the Milly Collection was released on Banana Republic's website. So why oh why has it taken me this long to wear it? No idea. I was originally saving this for a special occasion. Normally we have a slew of weddings to go to over the summer, but we have exactly zero this year. So, I thought about wearing it to my sister in law's baby shower, but decided to go with a floral dress instead. I then took it with me to San Antonio last month and planned to wear it for our family dinner, but then decided to just go causal in shorts and wedges instead. My next intention was in Chicago, but I found an excuse to not wear it then either. Not for any real reason, it's just odd the way your appetite changes for certain things. I finally realized I was just being ridiculous and needed to try it on again. I did just that this morning, and just like that - I fell back in love with it.

    1. Yes- for sure! I'm pretty picky about maxi dresses! They have to be just the right length and just the right cut. This is definitely a great find. Thank you for stopping by!

    1. Thanks! But if we are being honest, the Chanel came out again due to pure laziness in not wanting to switch it out! Although, it still all works and she needs to make more appearances anyway so it's all good!!
