Cold Shoulder Ruffle Sleeve Maxi Dress + Linkup

June 14, 2017

I feel like I should have titled this post, “embracing the wind” because in Oklahoma that’s just what you have to do sometimes. Seriously though, the wind was insane the day we shot these photos!

Instead I went with Cold Shoulder Ruffle Sleeve Maxi Dress to more aptly describe this amazing dress. I love the pattern, ruffle detail, and versatility of a piece like this. It would be so perfect for summer weddings, showers, date nights, etc. It would work equally well dressed down with flat sandals for more casual events. I paired it with a belt, fringe clutch, and my favorite classic heels for a dressier look. The nice thing about this dress is that you can also wear the sleeves down and make it sleeveless if you want.

I was excited to join Banana Republic for their sophisticated summer campaign, and I feel like this dress makes it so easy. One piece that embodies sophistication!

    it is a beautiful dress and love how the wind whips it around. Also love the fringe clutch, which I think is going to be a huge trend in the next few months.
