Jersey in Jerusalem

banana republic outlet_bauble barOne of my favorite items this summer are all things maxi; dress and skirt. The fit and ease of one makes it a go-to staple for the summer.

I occasionally stop in to check out their stock of work clothes and find that it’s a bit of a hit or miss. I did my usual lap around the store and out of the corner of my eye, I noticed a colorful printed piece. I quickly grabbed the multi-colored tribal print skirt and scurried off to the fitting room. To my excitement, it was a perfectly fitted pencil skirt. The best part was the savings I got!
