Emerald

I discovered this dress during one of my recent leisurely strolls through the mall. I’ll just pop into BR, I thought, with absolutely no intention of making a purchase.

BUT, when I saw this beauty, I immediately picked her up and trotted her throughout the store like she was mine. Needless to say, I made the purchase pretty soon after.

I’ve got a couple weddings coming up this summer as well as a trip to the ever-so-beautiful Paris. As such, I’ve been on the hunt for a nice dress that doesn’t cost a fortune. When I spotted this emerald gem, I thought it would be just perfect for both my summer weddings, and the high/low look would also make it the perfect contender for strolling through Parisian streaks in gladiator sandals or keds.

Plus, Banana always has these amazing 40% sales going on which really knock down the price. This dress in particular was part of a 50% off sale for all full priced summer dresses. Yes puh-lease!!

The colour will look great on my pale – and hopefully soon to be tanned – skin. The length is just perfect for me to wear sandals or heels (and I’m 5’4). It doesn’t graze the bottom of the ground, which means it won’t get trampled on or scuffed as it flows along.

Plus, a drawstring empire waist never hurt anyone.

Banana Republic has some super cute dresses so I would definitely recommend checking them out! Perfect for a Sunday brunch with the girls, a date night, or even a wedding. My favourites include this one, this one, and this one.
