Banana Republic Spring Strappy Floral Dress Pop of Pink_Adrienne Nguyen_Invictus_Sponsored Post

A two part post dedicated to Banana Republic goodness! Spring calls for lightweight, strappy sun dresses in ... cue drum roll ... floral print. Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada said it best:

"Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking."

Flowers are always associated with Spring so it's not exactly news or a trend that disappears. Rather, it's something that signifies the arrival of warmer weather and longer days! For this collaboration with Banana Republic, I was generously gifted this petite friendly floral dress from their latest collection. When I first opened the package I knew this piece would become a staple in my closet - I could wear it alone (as pictured) for hotter months yet it's thin enough to pile on layers for colder months. However, my face automatically cringed when I saw that it was a size 0P. My dress size varies tremendously depending on the retailer so I still had a glimmer of hope that I would be able to squeeze my way into this dress. After I zipped myself up, I was honestly speechless at the fit! The shoulder straps fit just right - they didn't dig into my skin nor did they slip off my shoulders. Additionally, the dress hugged my body enough to accentuate my waist but also gave me room to breathe - I could twirl in this dress all day! Unfortunately, I do not have pictures of the back but you can check it out and purchase the dress on the Banana Republic website - the color of this blue floral dress is "Pop Pink" but it's also offered in white, called "Cocoon."

Check out the Banana Republic website now and use the code: BRSPRING to get 40% off your purchase - act now since this offer ends 4/2/2016.

SLUB SCOOP NECK TEE

Now onward to a more casual look! I think these two outfits would be perfect for a weekend getaway. A dress for those cute cafe dates or casual dinner dates and a basic t-shirt for those days you just want to spend sight-seeing! I digress but I do love the feel of this Banana Republic Slub Scoop Neck Tee. I am wearing an XS yet it was roomy enough for me to hide my belly fat as I devoured my lunch (*forever leaping with glee*)! Not only does this shirt allow the freedom to eat your heart out, it also feels comfortable! During my last two years of college, I adapted a more casual look such as this one - it was so easy to just toss on a top and jeans. Those last years marked the only period of time when I wore jeans that often. I have since adapted a more professional look but I do occasionally pull some jeans out of my closet. These happen to be my favorite pair of skinny ripped boyfriend jeans. Forgive me as I go on another tangent but I used to wear my scarves as belts; I went through a phase in junior high. Felt a bit of nostalgia but I thought it worked well! Were any of you into scarf belts?
