Trina Turk for Banana Republic Sonya Patio Maxi Dress

Pin It
As you may be aware, the Trina Turk for Banana Republic Collection released last Thursday. The collection features 60 pieces ranging in price from $34.50 to $150 including dresses, shorts, accessories, sunglasses, swimsuits and towels in Trina's signature bold patterns.

Generally, I tend to shy away from bold prints. However, after looking through the lookbook, I immediately fell in love with it. This collection is filled with beautiful pieces! I found it quite hard to pick out a favorite. At the end, I decided to go with the Sonya Patio Dress in Pink Pisces for a couple of reasons. I love maxi dresses in general and would live in them year round. Also, at this stage of my pregnancy, flowy dresses is the best way to go. See the same dress on Elle of Fast Food and Fast Fashion.

What I am wearing:
Dress: Sonya Patio Dress in Pink Pisces c/o Banana Republic - size 0P
Sandals: LOFT (buy similar)
Clutch: Zara (buy similar)
Sunglasses: Kate Spade Gayla

Before receiving the dress, I was afraid it would be too long for me. Surprisingly, the length turned out to be perfect for my 5'2 frame. I like my maxi dresses to be about a couple of inches above the ground. I was shocked to know the entire collection is available in petite sizing as well. I am wearing a size 0P in this post and couldn't have asked for a better fit. This dress is made out of 100% silk so it moves beautifully. It is the perfect piece for the summer to wear to the beach or just hanging out by the pool =)

Readers, what do you think of this collection?

Sweet Sydney style. The dress looks lovely, and so do the choice of sandals to compliment the dress. The hat is also lovely. Once again... this is nothing more but sweet Sydney style. Awesome!
