When I attended the press preview for Marissa Webb's first full Banana Republic collection, one dress caught my eye immediately: A sunshine yellow halter-necked number, which, even in the early November chill, made me instantly feel bright, sunny and ready to sit outside sipping a margarita.
I've thought about this dress every few weeks since then, and today — the first truly nice spring day we've had this year! — felt like the perfect day to pick it up. Sure, it might not be quite warm enough to go sleeveless, but this dress reminds me that those days are just around the corner. For now, I'll probably wear it with a denim jacket or a cardigan and flats; when it's finally warm out, I'll keep it to a crown braid and simple sandals. And a red lip always, natch.
Pleated halter dress, $165, available at Banana Republic.
