Simply Sophisticated Summer: Bow Neck Dress and Scalloped Clutch

Summer is right around the corner and this striped bow-neck dress is the perfect transition piece.  As soon as I saw it online, I knew I had to have it.  What’s not to love – bows, stripes and pockets?  Today I’m sharing Banana Republic’s new simply sophisticated summer collection that celebrates the idea of letting casual be a state of mind and dressing up because you really want to.

Go big or go home right?  Bows and dresses are my weakness.  Combine the two, add pockets – how do I resist?  You can wear this dress from desk to dinner without even having to change.  It’s so comfortable and the perfect summer dress.  It’s simple, yet sophisticated and you can wear it casually with sandals or flats.  Sizing runs true to size however I’d recommend sizing down if you want a more fitted look.

This rechargeable scalloped clutch is everything!  This innovative bag charges your phone and holds all your essentials.  How amazing is this?  Best idea EVER.  It’s always when you need your phone the most and realize there’s only 5% battery left.  #storyofmylife

It’s the perfect size (measures 10.5″ x 5.5″ x 0.75″) and the scalloped details are adorable.  You know I love anything scalloped (lol).  If blush pink isn’t your thing, this clutch also comes in black and silver.  Love it and would recommend!

If you need a pair of classic strappy sandals for summer, these ankle wrap heels are so gorgeous.  They’re super comfortable with the perfect heel height (3 1/3″).  Sizing runs true to size and I took my normal size 5.  The pink champagne color is just the right shade and matches with everything.

Your idea is outstanding; the problem is an element that insufficient persons are speaking intelligently about. I am delighted we came across this during my look for something with this.
