Banana Republic: Lemon Print Full Skirt, Marimekko Collection Kivet Hampton Pant

I had a Banana Republic mail-day last week and was very happy with what I received. I checked in my stores for the Lemon Print Full Skirt but only saw the dress which is no longer online. Based on a few other full-skirt try-ons I ordered a size 6 in this skirt. I love everything about this skirt – the print, fit, length, pockets! I’ll balance the fullness of the skirt with a slim top or one tucked in.

I was able to order the Marimekko Collection Kivet Hampton Pant first thing in the morning on release day. I ordered my normal Hampton pant size of 6 and was able to get them in Short length. The fit is perfect. I thought the big dots on a pant might be a little overwhelming for me but I casually had on a graphic tee with it and it looked cool. I can’t wait to wear them!


You can still find the dress, sweater and skirt in the Kivet print online and in some stores.

Lemons seem to be a trend as Kate Spade, Ann Taylor and Banana all have some items. I would expect Forever 21 to pop some up too here soon.

Were you able to get anything from the Marimekko Collection? Have any “Lemons” in your closet?

    Oh those pants look fab on you making me want them even more. I wish I grabbed them on the pre-sale. Thanks for the review and size info!

      Shopping Celle – I am so glad I was able to get them, and in the Short length! I love the Hampton pant overall, more than the J Crew Cafe' Capri.
