Pleats Please

As you can tell by my hair, these photos were taken back in June before I left for Jamaica. Plus, I'm currently out of the country visiting both Australia and Fiji. The hairstyle might be old, but this beautiful pleated bow shift dress from Banana Republic is still new. If you're looking for an easy-to-wear dress with a little something special, then this is it. It has a shift dress fit and hits at your mid thigh if you're a taller girl. Since I'm closer to 5'3", you can see that it hits me just above the knees. You definitely want to showcase the top half of this dress to really see the bow detail. The fabric is also quite comfortable, and overall, the dress is great for a summer-to-fall wedding. If you can't find it in stores yet, remember that it's available online.

And you know I had to pair it with my all-time favorite piece from Banana -- the embroidered ruffle denim jacket. Seriously, I love this jacket with all my heart. Tying everything together and bringing out the color from the dress are the pearl sandals and the rose gold sunglasses. Part of me wishes this jacket were still available so you could shop it, but another part of me is happy that it's sold out because I want to be the only one with it. And that is not something I can say about the summer It bag, which everyone (and their moms, literally) owns.

If you are still looking to get your hands on the Cult Gaia ark bag (stop reading if you're over it), you should know that the bamboo color is hard to come by. But I did link this bag in the black version below. But if bamboo is your thing, then try this Cult Gaia lilleth bag instead (the one in my Muse Must Haves picks on the homepage).
On the Muse: | Stripe pleated-bow shift dress c/o Banana Republic | Cult Gaia ark bag (in black) | Steve Madden cashmere pearl sandals | Banana Republic embroidered ruffle sleeve denim jacket (similar) | Item 8 SM.3 rose gold mirrored sunglasses |
