Banana Republic 2014: Draped Jersey Top, Ruched Jersey Skirt, Gray Flannel Fit-and-Flare Skirt, Soft-Wash Gray Denim Shirt

Banana Republic always has good promos, almost every week now. You just need to decide which one to wait for. I think the one I used was a 40% off. Those and the 50% off one are whatI try to wait for. With Marissa Webb as the Creative Director the #NewBR is looking really cool.

~ Draped Jersey Top, Medium Heather Grey, Medium ~

I reviewed this a month ago {here} and loved it then but didn’t bring it home with me. I waited for a good promo to order it. It comes in 5 different colors but I stuck with the gray since that is one of my colors for Fall. For me, this still fits TTS, if only because of the arms. I may grab the Cocoon or Dark Cypress on another promo. 

~ Soft-Wash Gray Denim Shirt, Medium ~

I was on the fence about this denim shirt after I ordered it but once I tried it on I decided I liked it. I have two Madewell Denim Shirts, in denim and in black. Gray seems like a rare color for denim but I think it will layer well under some sweaters or alone with skirts or jeans. Maybe do a gray tonal look with my Toothpicks in Dolphin Gray? Good or bad, I’ll be sure to share if I do!
As far as fit, the Medium fit TTS for me. I like that it’s not too tight across the chest and waist. The length is long enough to stay tucked in, as well. 

Ruched Jersey Skirt, Black, Medium ~

I reviewed {here} and bought this same skirt in Gray. I’ve worn it a few times already during work-from-home days and love it. It’s so comfortable and very easy to wear that I bought it in black too. I wore it all weekend with a tee, cardi and Cons, and then on Sunday afternoon with a silk blouse. 


Gray Flannel Fit-and-Flare Skirt, size 8 ~

I really wanted this skirt to work out. This is a BR Pick which are almost always excluded from promos. But I really wanted to try it and see the material in person. I was hoping it was thicker in material but it’s thin. Definitely not for harsh winters, which I don’t have, but I would have to wear tights with this once it got colder. 
It has a flat front and then the pleats start. The size 8 fit well and the length felt ok. It would be nice to see this hitting just at the knee. 

And a few more of my current picks from Banana Republic. The Blue Jacquard Midi Skirt looks divine!

Happy Monday!

      Tisha – I hope you like them as much as I do. It looks like we are going to have a little cooler weather so I can finally wear the Drapey Top. Both skirts have already been in weekly rotation!
