Milly At Banana Republic

Around this time last year, Banana Republic had a collaboration with  Trina Turk (see my post here). This year there is one with the Milly label. Read more about the Michelle Smith, the woman behind this collection, here

The collection for Banana Republic has some classic colours, as well as some new, fresh ones. This year's green can be seen on the Milly Collection Eden Rock Printed Dress. The dress is cotton 98%/spandex 2% and should look great with a belt in a contrasting colour (such as pink). 

The Milly Collection Piped Shirt comes both in 'fall navy' as well as 'white.' the piping on the navy shirt is pink.

A lovely Milly Collection Circle Embroidered Skirt in lined white cotton with pink embroidery. Comes in Petite, Regular and Tall sizes. I would get a Tall for the extra length for myself.

Milly Collection Printed Medallion Scarf seems to be currently out of stock on the website, but you should be able to get one in the store. I really like the colours in this one.

A beautiful cotton dress, the Milly Collection Sleeveless Jacquard Dress in 'clean lime.' It also comes in Petite, Regular and Tall as well.

The Milly Collection Printed Halter Top is silk/spandex and comes in two different colourways.

I've seen the Milly Collection Crew-Neck Pullover in person and liked it a lot. It has a nice weight to it and would be great for the chilly summer mornings and evenings.

The Milly Collection Feathers Shorts have a cute pattern and lovely bright colours:

If you like this print but not the idea of shorts in this pattern, there is also the Milly Collection Coated Tote:

The  Milly Collection Market Tote comes in both 'silver' and 'cognac' and it's all leather.

Banana Republic has a 30% off sale on full priced right now with code BRWEEKEND until tomorrow night. I hope to stop in soon and try on some of the Milly Collection items soon. How about you?

Thanks for stopping by and have a great start of the week, everyone!


  1. Hi Rose. I love this collection. I had lots of reward certificates and the 25% promo made for great deals. I bought the white with lime piped shirt, both the scroll print and elephant shorts, the white tee with pink jewels and both colorways of the medallion print popover blouse. I love the Eden rock dress, circle embroidered skirt, all 3 colors of the crew neck pullover, the lime print skirt and lots of the cute bracelets. Sizes were same as jcrew for the most part. I took a 6 my perfect shirt size in the blouses and my regular 4 in the dresses and skirts, shorts the same size as i take in the jcrew chino shorts. Hope this helps.

    1. Seems like you got a good haul there, Shopping Celle! Hope you get lots of wear out of everything! Thanks for chiming in!

  2. Oh, love that eden rock dress! It's nice that the collection fits very much in the BR style- doesn't just look like they're making Milly knockoffs! Really pretty prints and simple silhouettes. Look forward to your thoughts on the actual pieces!

    1. I figured you might like something in green! :D I will step into BR soon to try some stuff out.
