rachel_bluedressI saw this dress in Banana Republic and just fell in love with the color. I don't typically wear dresses that flare out - I tend to stick to pencil skirts, as I find them more flattering to my figure. But, it's summer. It's hot. And I think it would make a perfect dress for summer events and dinners. For a day time look, I paired with it neutrals but I think it would also look great with a black belt and heels. Maybe I'll do that look for my birthday, which just so happens to be this month. The big 4-0. This month also started with a wonderful collaborations. I'm very excited to announce that I'm a Bablle Beauty Blogger! Make sure to check me out there! (dress + bracelet: banana republic, shoes: zara. purse: michael kors)
