Spring Style at Banana Republic

Despite having zero events to wear these dresses, I love their floaty, feminine style:

I can’t decide which color is prettier.

And while – let’s face it – I probably won’t buy one of these maxi dresses, this blouse and this scarf are more realistic contenders for spring wardrobe additions.

Have you shopped at Banana Republic lately?

Mara Hoffman Patio Dresses

Ok, I am seriously wishing to host or be invited to the kind of laidback summer backyard party that calls for wearing one of these Mara Hoffman beauties:

I love that they are casual, cool and retro all at the same time.

This one is on sale, which makes it more of a contender:

P.S. The brand just launched a new line of active wear, including full-length bodysuits (oh, dear).

P.P.S. There is also a rumored collaboration with S’well water bottles featuring classic Mara prints launching soon.
