A lot of people ask me what inspires my style. To be honest, there isn’t really one thing - I can be inspired by almost anything.
A lot of times, food inspires me. Whether it’s drinking a killer cup of pour over coffee, chowing down on a new dish I made, or discovering a new taco spot in town (if you haven’t tried Chaia, get over to Georgetown and enjoy some of the best tacos I’ve ever had!), enjoying good food is something that really gets my creative juices flowing.
But probably the biggest source of inspiration are people. Top bloggers speak volumes just through the images on their sites, strangers on the street give a new perspective on how to dress for Spring, and magazines show how mixing textures and prints can create a piece of art.
So when Banana Republic sent me a chambray top and the prettiest shade of lavender pants, I hit up all the usual suspects. I ate all the food, flipped through all the magazines and took a few walks in nature. Nada.
It wasn’t until I slumped down in front of the TV one evening that I spotted my inspiration. She was opening the door on my hubby’s new TV obsession, Billions. Malin Akerman was opening a door and then I saw it. She was sporting a chambray top (just like mine) with a cute white top underneath. It seemed so elementary but also revolutionary at the same time.
So I did just that. I grabbed my favorite white tee, paired it with my no. 1 lacy bra and finished the look with a silk scarf and my fave silver oxfords. Done and done.
That’s one of the many things I love about Banana Republic - their styles are so versatile. This look could have definitely taken a preppier turn, but with a bit of staying, quickly became a look I know I’ll be wearing all spring long.

Thanks so much to Banana Republic for sending me a few of their spring styles so I could share my honest opinion of their line. All opinions are my own.
