Frolicking in RanunculusThursday, April 28, 2016
I've teamed up with Banana Republic again to showcase their latest Spring midi dress for petites! The thought of SPRING conjures up images of flowers and bold colors... As you can tell by browsing through the images in this particular post, I found it only fitting to intertwine these two ideas together.
I have been in search for a fresh colored lightweight maxi for approximately a month so when this chartreuse strappy midi arrived, I jumped with joy! If you read my previous post in collaboration with Banana Republic, you already know that the dress featured in that story was a dream. It was as if a my exact measurements were taken to make that floral dress (See the first Banana Republic x invictus collaboration HERE). When I saw that this dress was also a 0P, I knew that I could slide comfortably in. Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed with the fit. Why? Well, the dress is a tad loose around the torso but it's nothing a little alteration couldn't fix! Yes, I know this dress isn't supposed to be skin tight however, I prefer it when my clothes give definition to my body. Additionally, if you guys look online at this chartreuse pleased dress, you'll notice that it's ideally supposed to end mid-calf. As for me, the dress floated in between a midi and a maxi - I'm a little too short!
Yeah, so what though... I still like this dress! The loose casual feel gave me freedom to twirl and allowed me to eat to my heart's content without walking around with a protruding belly! It has a fun crisscross pattern in back, both the front and back are pleated and it has POCKETS! I had so much fun running through the Carlsbad Flower Fields in this lightweight dress! The wind did wonders to this dress though the wind effect in my hair is definitely another story. For all you flower aficionados out there, I did not destroy any flowers! Hope you enjoy these pictures!
