Milly for Banana Republic

Designer collections for budget friendly stores are always a fabulous opportunity to get the look for less. Over the past few years some designer collaborations have been disappointing- but I think this one delivers. Banana Republic says the Milly collection by designer Michelle Smith, "blends effortless modernity with chic prints inspired by summertime."  I agree.  Milly is best known for classic looks with fantastic detail and fun prints.  The collaboration with Banana Republic features pretty prints as well as beading and colorful accessories.  Plus the price point is well below half of the price of original boutique Milly clothes. Let's check out some of the women's line highlights:

Striped Fit and Flare dress

If you buy nothing else, splurge on a bracelet.  You will feel so special the next time you go out.  With accessories, the colors do not need to perfectly match your outfit, just complement it. Two-tone stretch bracelet, $35..

This is a personal favorite.  Mostly, because of the accessibility of the price. Shorts and a tee are perfect for any summer day!
Beaded Necklace top, $45.
Shorts, $49.50 

Love the mix of prints here! Medallion Print Roll-Sleeve Top

 Colorblock Pleated Patio Dress

Market Tote, $130.. 

 Eden Rock Printed Dress
