I was lucky enough to get to style one of Banana Republic’s ridiculously versatile dresses from their spring collection. I know this is going to sound trite, but this is the ultimate “day to night” piece. Sheer and floaty enough for date night, yet soft and roomy enough for lounging around on the porch, which is pretty much what it was used for this weekend. Kind of a no-brainer to style, too…

That is a perfect "day to night piece," I completely agree. I am enamored with the lovely sheer layers. And your shoes! Delectable.
The airy dress with the edgier jacket is gorgeous! You have some amazing asymmetrical pieces in your wardrobe that you've made so versatile, I love it! And I'm kinda diggin those heels a lot.. 🙂
that shot of the hemline is fantastic. You can really see the cut and quality of the dress, and I love how the sunlight highlights its sheer quality.
Aah how I miss the days when I had a 50% employee discount at Banana…
The dress is stunning! I love the layered back!
extremely glam look. love the jacket!
Absolutely in awe of the styling! The jacket–asymmetrical, the accessories, the shoes with those heels—everything is perfect!
omg i am drooling over your jacket! that dress is gorgeous too, love the color and the two levels of it 🙂

Ooo, it's such a breautiful dress. I love the layering at the bottom. You styled it so well.
Oh that dress is so dreamy! I love how you've styled it.
simply stylish! thumbs up big time.
I honestly love that jacket of yours. I want to find a perfect jacket, just like yours with a little edge, that I can wear with my Spring dresses.
Very nice, I love versatile clothing, which is why I look at things now and ask myself can I wear it in winter (or summer), for some things I find I can and that opens up so many ways to style an outfit.
You look lovely, I really like the jacket and the clutch bag.
I'm really enjoying the hard edge of the leather jacket against the soft, flowing dress. And – I can't get enough of the shape of those shoes. Nice work!
I absolutely agree that it's the perfect day to night piece – I'm sooo tempted to get one now, it's so pretty on you!
You are torturing me with showiung this jacket again and again! 😀
I guess it must be one of your favorite pieces in your closet! :-*

I love, love, love it! The angles of the clothes really go so well together. And that clutch? Amazing.
i don't think my brain can compute the fact that your dress is from BR! i love the asymmetrical hem, and the way you mirrored that in the hem of the jacket.
As always gorgeous, love the jacket-its truly amazing!! And that dress is very nice-the layers are perfection

Love this whole look! Esp. the shoes and bracelets/rings!
What I like about the shoes is that they are not quite ankle booties but not quite a pump- and yet they look so sleek
The mix of jewelery is perfect too
