Banana Republic is killing this season. Since November I bought a long cardi, a cashmere hoody, a merino blend cropped cream sweater, one merino turtleneck and one crew neck. More than I bought in the last 3 years combined! And I’m not done yet! Received today a shimmer short-sleeve sweater and very happy about it. I’m almost 5’3 and buy petite tops from BR. This one is sure cropped but not too short and will be great for higher rise pants.

It says that color is sandy-beige but it looks like on a photo, kind of more rose or deeper nude color, not beige. It is thin, a summer weight sweater, the shimmer is subtle. I bought M. I’m S in BR’s relaxed sweaters but I usually go for M for an oversized look. So, mine is definitely bigger than on a model but this is how I like it. I have no idea how it will look once I wash it, this remains to be seen. But it looks elegant and simple. Effortless. Which is my word for this year
