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!

Banana Republic has really done well, IMO, with the Fall Collection. The #NewBR is very minimal looking with black, white, gray, navy and burgundy colors throughout the Collection. You can see some of these colors in the tops below.

~ Silk V-Neck Top, Gray, Medium ~

The gray is really nice on this blouse. The silk gives it a little bit of a sheen but I love that it is 100% silk. You never know with retailers. This will be wonderful to layer with Navy and Burgundy. 

~ Ivory Faux Leather Top, size 6  ~

I grabbed this to have something to try on with some jeans and unexpectedly liked this. Banana Republic seems to do a very good job of faux-leather. The size 6 fit perfectly as well. The length hit just at the hips for me. 

Though this says Ivory the front was more of a White compared to the knit back, which was Ivory.  

~ Embossed Top, Cocoon, Medium ~
This wasn’t a solid plain white knit blouse. Though it’s hard to see this is made to look embossed and feel that way as well. The Small was tight across the chest and the Medium fit pretty well. This would be a nice layering top under a blazer if you need a basic for work. This also comes in Black.
~ Riviera Blouse, White (comes in Black and also in Colorblock), Medium ~
This style also comes in a dress. I believe it’s due to the collarless collar and rolled button-sleeves. Though Polyester, I did like the feel of this on. The Medium was the best fit through the shoulders and arms though a little long. 
~ Draped Jersey Top, Medium Heather Gray, Small ~
This was another one of my favorites from the tops. I chose to bring home the Silk V-Neck Top over this. I had to fiddle with the neckline and collar a bit so that it wasn’t bunchy. The wrap covers everything so no need for a cami underneath. The wrap gathering at the side helps camouflage the middle as well. 
The sleeves were a little snug but since this fit pretty well in the Small I would not size to a Medium. I seem to take a 6/Small in Banana Republic Tops instead of my normal 8/Medium J Crew Tops. Therefore, I would say this is TTS. 
With the Ruched Gray Jersey Skirt it almost looks like a colorblock dress…a comfortable colorblock dress. 
I have to tell you how much I really love the Ruched Gray Jersey Skirt. I’ve worn it twice since bringing it home. It feels so very comfortable to wear. I wish it came in something other than black, like Navy or Burgundy or even a Heather Brown or Taupe. I’d buy every single color. 
Have a Great Day!
