Style Chocolate Chip: Favorite Summer Trends with Banana Republic

Favorite Summer Trends with Banana Republic

Thursday, August 3, 2017


Happy Thursday Loves! 
There is one more day until the weekend, but I'll be kick it off early by sharing a few looks to get you ready to look your best. 

Today I am partnering with Banana Republic to share a couple of my favorite Summer outfits. If you follow along on my Instagram you may have gotten a sneak peek into some of these looks. However, today I am spilling it all on these cute closet staples! 

 I’m rounding up FIVE of my favorite Summer closet staples which include a combination of classic dresses and flattering tops. I personally love the feminine designs of the Banana Republic pieces that can easily be dressed up or down. Even though I usually lean towards casual outfits I still like to look polished. So you can usually find me in a jean and cute top combo (like the ones I'm sharing below)! 

Summer my favorite season to dress for because I like how easy it can be. I like the idea of layers but don't actually like to wear them. So lightweight fabrics and simple silhouettes are the ones I will usually reach for. BUT simple doesn't mean boring. All of these pieces have unique details or cute prints that make an outfit anything but ordinary. Win and win!!

Stripe Cami Dress - Banana Republic c/o | Strappy Sandals- Steve Madden | Necklace- Gorjana | 

Stripes are always a good idea- am I right?! This striped dress has been one of my favorites this season. I adore the pretty colors on this midi dress. Also, the fabric is lightweight which is perfect for those hot Summer days. I actually can’t wait to wear this dress again but I will probably dress it down. I think it will look so cute with a denim jacket and simple slides.

Scarf Print Wrap Top- Banana Republic c/o | Fringe Hem Jeans- Express | Platform Espadrille Wedges- Marc Fisher

I’ve actually already worn this top multiple times. It’s such a cute but simple design that I often reach for it. On date night I love to wear something casual yet put together. And, the easiest way for me to achieve this is with jeans and a nice top. I also appreciate that this wrap top ties around the waist. This silhouette is instantly slimming around the waist- I can totally get with that.

A Line Dress -Banana Republic c/o | Pink Straw Clutch- JCrew | Lace Up Sandals- Schutz | Sunnies- Le Spec | Necklace- Gorjana c/o

When I wore this dress I received compliments on it from two different ladies walking down the street. Hey, that means it is a winner! My favorite part are the pockets of the dress- I LOVE pockets in a dress. Also, a neutral colored dress is essential in any closet. Since it is a neutral color the look of an outfit can easily be changed with different accessories. I choose to wear it with a chunky block heel and added a pop of color with this cute pink straw bag.

One Sleeve White Top- Banana Republic c/o | Jeans- Paige | Espadrille Wedges- Schutz | Pink Straw Clutch- J.Crew |

Nothing beats a classic white top. A white top goes with everything and is a timeless staple worth investing in. This one shoulder top is super flattering and can easily be dressed up or worn casually. I love a polished casual outfit…so I wore this top with jeans. It’s an effortless and easy outfit that works for almost any occasion. This long sleeve one shoulder top is also perfect to transition into Fall!

So I started this blog post with stripes and I'm ending it with stripes…because who can get enough- right?! I wore this top out to dinner a couple times... both times with jeans. It is also the same silhouette as the other scarf print top- and I love that! The fit is so flattering and the fabric is so easy to care for too. I’ve noticed that many of the Banana Republic pieces have easy care fabrics which don’t wrinkle easy nor have to be dry-cleaned. I’m a person that is so lazy when it comes to laundry…if I wash a piece of clothing and it has to be heavily pressed or is dry clean only…it will probably sit for a very long while. I’ve worn all the tops in today’s post a couple times already AND washed them. 

 If you have made it to the end of this post, you definitely need a drink or two (or a double shot coffee). But, hey it’s basically the weekend so you have definitely earned it!
