I popped into Gap before we left on our trip was delighted to find some great pieces. Several came home with me that I am enjoying wearing. They are having an insanely great sale so quantities may be limited or gone and what’s left is seriously marked down. They’re giving up to 70% off sale merchandise and 40% off regular merchandise online with the code HAPPY at checkout.
The shorts are a stretch twill and come in several colors. It took me a moment to realize I was wearing the tee backward. It has a “ballet” neckline and is meant to scoop in the back. I did wonder why the neckline was so low:)
Here it is with their mid-rise stretch skinny pants. They are a size too large for me so baggier than they should be. It’s funny because they come all the way to my waist so if they consider this mid-rise, high-rise must come to the underarms. The tee is too long for me so I simply folded it under and it stays put. I do this with tops often and find the double fabric helps camouflage zipper and tummy lumps.
Next, I tried on these girlfriend Twill Stripe Chino’s which come in 11 colors. They come in petite, regular, and tall. I’m wearing the regular version which is about 1 inch too long for me. I’m wearing them with the Gap vintage tee which comes in 18 colors. It’s easy wearing and super soft.
Here are the chino’s in pink which I loved. I should have bought them. #hindsight I am wearing them with a flowy tank top. The one I am wearing has a watermelon print… I could not find a link for it so it may be sold out.
This sleeveless shirtdress dress is a classic. I don’t like it with the self-belt but it would be nice with a woven leather belt or worn open as a vest. Since I didn’t have a contrasting belt handy I tied this linen striped shirt at the waist for some shaping. I loved the shirt!
These are the bi-stretch twill pants in gingham. A great pant and as with the white ones they are labeled mid-rise but closer to a high-rise on me.
This flutter sleeve top is a fabulous concept but a disaster on me because it makes my shoulders look wider than they are. It’s a smart design that gives full coverage up to the underarm then has an over piece that ruffles. It comes in several colors and would be great on women with narrower shoulders.
They make a large collection of very soft, very cute pajamas and loungewear under the ‘Love By Gapbody” category. This PJ top and shorts are a super soft cotton modal blend that’s perfect for warm nights.
As with any dressing room diaries, there is always one or two disasters. This dress looked fabulous on the hanger but not on me. I can’t imagine why anyone would want this much gathering right at the crotch. I am short and it would hit higher on a taller woman but even then… I couldn’t find a link so maybe it’s sold out:)
Here are the weekend sale updates:
Chico’s is giving up to 70% off select styles.
Talbot’s is giving 50% off all shorts and tees plus 40% off all markdowns.
J. Jill is giving an extra 40% off all sale styles.
Fall merchandise will be hitting stores soon so get ready:)
Thanks for reading ladies and have a great day!
