Can anyone else not resist a great long sleeve maxi dress?
The longer I live in the Midwest, the more I grow an appreciation for chic look that also provide a little warmth. You all know by now, I am a sucker for a good dress, but the options are often limited in the cooler months.
Last year, Banana Republic made a very similar long sleeve maxi dress in a bold hunter green and it’s one of those dresses that has strangers stopping you to ask where it was purchased. Based on its popularity, I was hoping Banana would make a similar version this year. Imagine my surprise when I spotted exactly what I was looking for in their Black Fridays. I knew I had to have it!
As most of their dresses, this option also comes in petites for us shorter gals! The sleeves are sheer while the rest of the dress is made with soft layers for that added bit of warmth this time of year. Small buttons line the front of the dress while the neckline is trimmed with a lovely bow/tie.
Similar to last years version, I chose to belt the look to break give my waist a little added definition. And, chose these great ankle booties (which I almost never take off!) over heels to give it more of an edge. I have also worn this dress to the office with a more subtle, all-black belt and suede heels for a classic, pulled together look.
This long sleeve maxi is a great dress, y’all! Bonus, Banana Republic is now running a really great sale making the dress almost 50% off! Such a steal if you ask me!
I hope you all have a great rest of the week! Don’t forget to enter for your chance at a $1,000 Nordstrom shopping spree, too!
