Recently I’ve found my affinity towards whites, especially as the weather warms and shows signs of summer. It gets hot here, not cute wanderlust hot;  more like sweaty, smoldering hot, which challenges my ability to stay cool and stylish at the same time. White reflects that hot Arizona sun so I don’t feel like Grettle in the witches oven. (Ok, so I exaggerate a bit.)

Raise your hand if you consider Banana Republic a shopping staple. Yeah, me too. Since the beginning of time, or as far back as my mom brain can remember Banana has been a first stop for both my husband and I for quality, classy looks. Everything I’ve ever purchased there has found a long term home in my closet.

I’m sharing two more perfect pieces in white that Banana Republic has done right!

The Vacation Cardigan

Ok, you’re packing for a trip…. literally anywhere where the weather is warm: Bali, Barcelona, Santa Barbara, Tulum, Rome, Maui, … Scottsdale Arizona 😉 Aside from the obvious, what are necessities? A cute light cardigan OF COURSE. If my mama taught me nothing else, she taught me: Always take a cardigan.

This sweet little fitted cardigan by Banana Republic is knitted in a breathable beautiful design. A light, airy staple that will go to the beaches around the world with you, or maybe just to your back patio in the evening for a glass of red.

Sleeve Details

I’m going to share a secret with you.. ready? Sleeve detail is IN!

Ha! JK! That’s no secret, that’s a full blown trend and ya’ll better get on the trend train because this is a fun one. I’m a huge fan of fun sleeves. What’s not to love? Well, other than those massive bell sleeves that drag through my pasta when when I’m trying to eat, but that’s neither here nor there.

This sweet Banana Republic t-shirt flaunts cold shoulders and sleeve detail without the drama. Drama is good sometimes, but sometimes we just just want to feel cute when running errands or going out for a coffee. I paired this T with my favorite denim and a pair of white converse for a mommy-son date with my 3 year old. We went go-cart racing and I felt like I could head straight to date night with the hubby with a switch to heels.

I have a crush on all things white lately, and Banana Republic truly nails perfect pieces that exude style and class.
