TravelBella - Vegas in April

Husband and I are heading to Vegas for a few days. We are practicing for our "Empty Nest", which we have taken to quite well. I'm still sad though. I've seen The Boy become such a wonderful person and I don't want him to go anywhere. We plan to lounge around the pool during the days and catch a show or two so I'm excited to pack different things from my October trip. The bulk of my wardrobe is from J Crew with some of my Tory Burch pieces thrown in.

~ Amalie Sandal, Tory Burch ~

Day 3 - Day/Night

Que Bella - Yellow Porcelain

I realized I hadn't worn this skirt in over a year, almost two! But I love it and won't ever part with it (unless I grow out of it). I was also chomping at the bit to wear my new Sadie Metallic Slingbacks. Throw in a beautiful Spring sunny day and I have a pretty and comfortable outfit.

I added the Keating Boy Blazer in Linen since it was cool most of the morning and early afternoon. 

I wasn't too much of a wrinkled mess by the evening for an event of The Boy's.

~ Porcelain Paisley Pencil Skirt, J Crew (Ann Taylor, Joe Fresh, Kate Spade) ~
~ Sadie Metallic Slingback, Tory Burch ~
~ Ring, old Banana Republic (F21, Kate Spade) ~
~ Metallic Patent Belt, J Crew (J Crew, Express) ~

Have a Great Day!

Banana Republic - Silver Seas Statement Necklace, White Floral Delicate Necklace, Peaches and Cream Statement Necklace, Sea Glass Statement Necklace, Kissing Animal Bracelet, Aqua Ombre' Stretch Bracelet, Jaguar Ring

Lastly, some jewelry I found at Banana Republic.

Silver Seas Statement Necklace - I have enough Statement Necklaces and don't wear them very often. This one was pretty and just from past necklaces from BR, I usually find them to be a little lightweight, not necessarily cheap-feeling just not too heavy. It makes them easier to wear all day. This is very similar to J Crew's Grande Crystal Drops Necklace. I can only wear that for a few hours before it starts to get heavy.

White Floral Delicate Necklace - I was drawn to this one as well, maybe more so than the one above. I walked right by the Statement Necklace to see this one.

Matching bracelet to the White Floral Delicate Necklace

Peaches and Cream Statement Necklace

Sea Glass Statement Necklace - Brown and mint is always a pretty color combo.

Kissing Animal Bracelet - Kissing Zebra's...nuff said.

Aqua Ombre' Stretch Bracelet -These would be nice wear with a white dress. I love a Turquoise/White combo.

Jaguar Ring - This little ring was super cute. It has a Pave' jaguar head on the top.

Have a Great Day!

Banana Republic - Mixed Print Riviera Dress, Floral Drop-Waist Dress, Seamed Fit-and-Flare Dress, Heritage Textured Stripe Belted Sheath Dress

Here's another round of Banana Republic, this time dresses.

Mixed Print Riviera Dress, Size 6 - I really liked this dress. It has a slip-lining and fits loose but not like the JC Jules dresses. Just a really nice Ikat Shift Dress. The reviews are mixed online. I like the v-neck and it just sits well on my body. I am a 6 in shift or unstructured dresses so size down. I'm considering this one.

Floral Drop-Waist Dress, Size 6, Ivory - I believe this also comes in Black in-store. Or at least that's what I thought I saw. This dress runs Small and would take some severe Spanxing to manage in this size. I love the big huge daisies all over the dress. I don't like the exposed back zipper. The length was good and I didn't find it too see-through though I was wearing nude undergarments. A pass for me but would be a great option for graduation or in the darker color for a wedding. Kind of loved it though and would consider it in the size 8.
  

Seamed Fit-and-Flare Dress, Size 6, White (also Navy) - This one isn't as tight as the Drop-Waist Dress but I would still go up to an 8 in this. The Ponte is comfortable and not very thick but thick enough that it isn't see-through in the white. You can see it has an exposed back zip in the last pic. I'd consider this on sale, probably in the Navy.
  

   

Heritage Textured Stripe Belted Sheath Dress, Size 6 - This dress was the image in my email and I was happy to see it in the store. But, this dress is structured and the size 6 does not fit. You might think it look like it does fit very well but I could not zip it up past the belt/waist. The hips were pretty tight too. I would like to try the size 8 and I really loved the material and the shape is really nice too. I hope the size 8 gives me the look of that tiny waist I see in these pics. ;-)
  

Anything catch your eye here? I have some Jewelry pieces coming up later today.

Happy Shopping!
