The Fluff Report: March 2016

Springtime with Banana Republic!


The beginning of Spring can be dreary in Rochester. It's probably my least favorite season so I find having something to look forward to can ease the pain of the rainy, chilly weather. My three besties and I planned a girls' weekend in Hollywood Beach, Florida for the beginning of May. I won't tell you what we'll be celebrating but it involves a milestone birthday: one that might signify we are "over the hill".  None of us ladies have been to Hollywood Beach before so I would love to hear some suggestions on where to eat, drink and play! 

I was so excited when Banana Republic asked to team up to show off some new Spring arrivals! I can tell ya when this lilac peplum lace top arrived on my doorstep , I knew right away it would be traveling to Florida with me. It literally can be paired with just about anything in my closet.  Skinny jeans, pencil skirt, high waisted shorts, or the chambray Ryan pants from BR,  his top has so much versatility. I'm in love with the beautiful lace detailing and fluttery, scalloped sleeveless edges. 

Pink and grey are two of my most loved color combinations. This fringe grey cardi has a boxy, cropped look with a great weight to it which I think is perfect as a transition piece into Spring. Fringe can be a scary trend for some but this has literally just the right amount. Such a cute detail that really takes a classic look up a notch. 

My seven year old tells me has visions. Like when we took him to a Cleveland Cavaliers game the other night, he told me he had a vision that Cleveland would have 100 points at the end of the game. Whadda ya know...Cleveland ended the game with 100 points. I too have visions. Like when I saw this choker knot necklace, I immediately envisioned it with a peplum top and you can guess where this is going....a peplum top landed in my lap. I haven't bought a choker type necklace since the 90's but I've found it can be extremely flattering for your neck, which I never knew was a thing but now that I'm headed over "that hill", I need to find things that flatter any part of my body. 

What are you searching for as a new Spring addition to your wardrobe? Pop into Banana Republic because you will definitely find a ton of cute stuff!
