Simply. Sophisticated. Summer. with Banana Republic

With the official kickoff of summer right around the corner, I've added some sophisticated summer essentials to my wardrobe.  This adorable striped bow-neck shift dress immediately caught my eye when shopping Banana Republic's newest summer pieces.  Stripes always make me think of summertime and I adore bow-neck detail.  Plus a shift dress is perfect when trying to achieve an easy no fuss summertime look.

Every summer, I always pick up what I consider to be two summer essentials...a great straw hat and a gorgeous straw bag.  You may have noticed that I've been wearing my straw hat with everything...that's how much I love it and I've been carrying my tote bag nearly everyday too.  I love the simplicity yet chic style of both of these accessories and their neutral color truly goes with everything.

For a size reference, I am wearing a size 4 in the dress (which is on sale for only $60 btw) and I'm wearing a L/XL in the hat as I like my hats to fit a bit looser.

Banana Republic has some of the cutest summer pieces right now!  I've included some of my favorites from their "Simply. Sophisticated. Summer." collection below as well!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by...hope you have a wonderful day!
