Last year I thought about purchasing the Ann Taylor trench dress (many of you know which one I'm talking about), but I never pulled the trigger.  After seeing so many of my stylish blogger gals styling that same trench dress in super cute outfits on their blogs, I regretted not picking one up when I had the chance.  Fast forward to this spring, when Banana Republic just launched their own version of a trench dress in a soft, silky fabric and perfect neutral color.  Easy decision, I knew I had to have this dress because I already had so many ideas of how to style it.  I took advantage of a recent 40% off coupon code plus $30 I had sitting around in rewards, so this trench dress only cost me $40.  I purchased a size 0 regular (rather than a 2 petite) because I wanted the slightly longer length, and am very happy with the fit.  This weekend, I wore this Belted Trench Dress tied back at the waist (like a vest) over a striped sweater, dark skinny jeans, and leopard pumps.  A crossbody clutch and gold jewelry round out this casual look that is perfect for a lunch date, the office, and more.
