Banana Republic - March

J. Crew's Micro-Tweed Jacket in Navy and Banana Republic's Textured Knit Lady Jacket were both on my short list for a spring jacket. In the end I did get the JC one because it is a bit more casual, but I do like the BR one as well. The front has hook and eye closures, but most likely I would wear this jacket open. If navy is not your colour, there is also a 'camel' version as well. The navy jacket also comes with a matching skirt, making this a very office appropriate outfit. Both the jacket and the skirt are size 4 and are currently on sale.

I tried on the Striped Scoop-Neck Pullover (size S) because it felt extremely soft to the touch and looked very well made. It is silk/cotton 60/40. The one I have on is called 'fall navy,' and the 'cocoon' (white/navy stripes) and 'Mayet pink' (pink/navy stripes)are currently on sale.

And some new arrivals that caught my eye on the website are:

Cotton-Linen Safari Suit Jacket

Heritage Wrap Cardigan

Geo Lace Top (comes in 6 colours)

How about you? Anything you liked at BR lately? Please share!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Wednesday, everyone!


  1. Rose, that BR tweed suit looks stunning on you! Very chic indeed! Did you get it?
    I've never bought anything from BR. They don't exist in Australia, and I don't think they ship here.... I've been to the shop in London, but at the time it was all a bit meh, I thought, plus lots of poly and other dodgy fabrics.

    1. Bar.thanks, Ruth! No I didn't get it. I always find quite a few things I like in BR.

  2. I agree, the Micro Tweed pieces look great on you. I considered buying the jacket, but read some reviews that the hook closures catch in the tweed.
    The Geo Lace top looks pretty. I'm a sucker for lace and the pattern is an unusual graphic.
    Thanks for the reviews.

    1. Thanks, maryeb! I can see how those closures could be a problem.

      I likE the geo print as well and hope to check it out soon!
