I’m in full-on vacation countdown mode (only 4 days until I’m sitting on the sunny beaches of Aruba! Woohoo!) so I’ve been spending way too much time perusing the internet for some fun resort items. I’m torn though — I don’t want to blow a lot of money (you know how I hate to pay full price!) on something that’ll be beach-appropriate now but not get much play come springtime. Then I spotted this adorable navy silk dress at Banana Republic. You can always count on good ole Banana for something feminine and classic. I’ll pair it with flat sandals and either a long medallion necklace or dangley turquoise earrings next week. Bonus: I’ll also wear it all summer at work. For the office, I’ll add this chunky belt and booties to make it more citified. (Is that a word? It is now!) And how can I resist something called the Ariel necklace? My Ariel-obsessed 5 year old will certainly approve. And it’ll remind me of my vacation when I’m pounding the NYC pavement next summer.
