Have Dresses, Will Travel

Over the past few years I’ve made no secret of the fact that I’m not really a dress person. Dresses are usually reserved for special occassions and even then, if I can get away with a dressed up pair of jeans and heels you better believe that’s what I’m going with!

There is one HUGE exception to this rule and that’s when we travel. I almost always have at least two dresses packed for every trip. Mainly though it’s because I’m a total minimalist when it comes to vacation packing and dresses are so versatile and take up less room than a full outfit.

We have two vacations planned this summer – one with our kids to Mexico and the other to Greece to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Both of these destinations will call for plenty of dresses in the suitcase! I’ve gotten a jump start on my collection early with these two dresses from Banana Republic.

Navy and White Polka Dot Dress + Bright Pink Heels

You may have already seen this dress floating around on my social media a few weeks ago. This is the exact look that I wore for my great niece’s/goddaughter’s baptism. I love how easily this polka dot maxi dress can be dressed up or down – it would work equally as well with a pair of flat gold sandals for a more casual affair.

Floral Sundress + Neutral Wedges

Every summer trip calls for a pretty printed sundress packed along for the fun! This one is dressy enough for a summer wedding. Just add neutral accessories and you’re good to go!



Big thanks to Banana Republic for sponsoring this post and making my summer packing even easier!
