Classic Summer Style

Shop this look: Banana Republic Satin Slip Dress (wearing a small), Linen Blend Sweater (wearing a small) c/o

Summer looks a little different this year but that doesn’t mean I’m sacrificing style while hanging at home. I’ve been reminded lately how important it is to make an effort with yourself when it comes to getting dressed and ready for the day regardless of plans (or lack there of!). Banana Republic’s new collection was created around the idea of “bring your own sunshine” which should honestly be everyone’s motto this summer. Making the best of what we have, celebrating the mini moments, taking advantage of the beautiful weather and time together.

I’ve always admired Banana Republic’s take on classic style with attention to sophisticated, feminine details. Their new collection is a perfect example of elevated style that is perfect for whatever is on your calendar, even if it is watering your tomato plants and barbequing at home. I styled two looks from their new arrivals to help inspire your summer style and remind you to bring your own sunshine wherever you go. 

I’ve been drawn to the simple shape of an easy t-shirt/slip dress but love this satin leopard style (also available in solid neutrals). It’s easy, breezy for day or night and so comfortable! Neutrals are always trusted staples in my closet and I love how effortless this outfit feels. I’m also going to be buying this sweater in every color because it is PERFECT for summer. 

Shop this look: Square Neck Sweater Tank (wearing a small), White Linen Pants (true to size, wearing a 4), BF Linen Blazer (true to size, wearing a 2) c/o

White linen pants just scream summer to me. Whether you’re dressing up for a work meeting or hosting a dinner in your backyard I feel like this look is so timeless. I love the tailored but relaxed fit of this style and I made them feel a little more relaxed with this sweater tank (also love this style!). I couldn’t resist this pink blazer (how amazing would it look with these shorts?) to throw on when I want to feel a bit more sophisticated.

Banana Republic has so many perfect pieces to enjoy summer! I love this jumpsuit for 4th of July festivities, this sweet red dress, this navy romper or how fun is this rainbow knit dress? Right now they are having a HUGE SALE! Up to 60% off EVERYTHING (literally everything is on sale). More styles to love below:

How will you bring your own sunshine this summer?

A big thank you to Banana Republic for collaborating on this post!
