Banana Republic for the Summer to Fall Transition!

September 11, 2022


Did you know that Hot Girl Summer is being followed by Horse Girl Fall this year?!!  That’s what I’ve heard the Equestrian trend called and I think it’s so cute.  So when Banana Republic asked me to pick out a couple of pieces, I had to choose this well-made riding vest, along with an absolutely dreamy ruffled skirt!

Shop this Look: 

To be perfectly honest, I didn’t choose these two pieces to go together.  I pictured the skirt with a tie-waist white blouse and the vest with a turtleneck, jeans, and riding boots!  But … I couldn’t help but try them together and I love how this look turned out!

Solstice Ramie Midi Skirt

The Solstice Ramie Midi Skirt calls me to adventure and romance!  The pintucks and rows of shirring give this a dreamy silhouette.  Wear with a white tank or blouse and sandals now for late summer and then try it with some knee high suede boots and a sweater for fall.  The shell is 100% ramie and the lining is 100% cotton.  Machine washable.  Runs slightly big.


The Riding Vest

This chic little vest is full of surprises, like multiple pockets, and a pinstriped lining.  Wear with a tank top now and over a turtleneck sweater when the weather cools.  You can adjust the tab in back to tighter or loosen the fit.  Machine washable and fits true to size.


So, what do you think of the Equestrian trend?

Love the leather tote I’m wearing with this look?  Be sure to read the full review here.  Also on the blog lately, my favorite new kimono!

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is me talking to you, other middle aged women like me who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. We all have our own shapes and bodies, parts we’d like to cover and parts we still don’t mind showing off a bit.  This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce!
