Though I know it goes without saying, this has been such a chaotic week – most of us have had our schedules flipped upside down as we struggle to quickly adapt to the changes happening around the world. I don’t want to seem like I’m ignoring the current climate, but my hope is that this site can be a refuge when you are feeling overwhelmed & need a distraction. So, I’ll continue to share the things I love, including my own recent purchases, spring outfit ideas & some great online sales to take advantage of while you’re social distancing.
I’m so excited to be partnering with Gap today to announce their Friends & Family Event! I’ve been a long-time devotee of their denim, but they also have so many pretty dresses, chic separates & classic outerwear that will carry you through the season in style. I’ve put together 3 spring looks featuring some of my favorite pieces from their new arrivals – everything is 40% off with code GAPFRIEND + get an extra 10% off with code ALLYOU (if you’re a Gap cardholder, you get an extra 20% off with code PLUS20). This sale doesn’t happen very often, so it’s a great time to stock up & save!
If you’ve been wanting to try the wide-leg crop trend but haven’t found a pair that work for you, these pants are amazing! I think what makes these magical is the heavier weight fabric that gives them the perfect amount of structure so they lay just right & truly flatter your shape. I got my usual size in the regular length, but these are also available in tall (for those over 5’9″) and petite (I’d recommend for those under 5’6″). They come in 6 different colors & are such a great alternative to jeans – they would even work for the office!
I paired them with this pretty eyelet top, which is a spring/summer wardrobe staple (also comes in white or coral). Wear it with jeans (these are my current favorite), shorts (love these mid-length options) or tucked into skirts for a feminine look – I recommend sizing down in this as it has a more relaxed fit. More tops that would work well with these pants: this square-neck button-front top (also in stripes & floral print), this linen tie-front top & this v-neck top (also in white here).
If you want to feel like you’re wearing pajamas all day long (without looking like it), this is the dress for you! It is as soft as butter and so comfortable – the tie detail makes it especially flattering through the midriff without being too clingy. If you’re worried about the length, this also comes in petite for an above-knee option. This would be great with sneakers or flat sandals too! Other dresses worth checking out during the sale: this textured sleeveless dress, this button-front midi, this white eyelet shift (maxi option here) & this floral print dress.
Although I’m focusing exclusively on women’s fashion in this post, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention my husband’s favorites because he swears by Gap jeans, pants & shorts. We just bought him another color in these vintage khakis, stocked up on these cargo shorts for summer & these are the jeans he wears almost every day (available in blue wash here).
An airy white blouse is a must-have for the warm weather months and I fell in love with the embroidered detail on this one. There is a button closure at the neckline, but I left it open for a more relaxed feel. This has a pretty loose fit, so I recommend sizing down. It also comes in gingham, polka dot & a pretty floral print – so great for wearing with jeans & espadrilles!
If you’re needing a good casual daytime skirt, this one is such a cute option. I’m a big fan of paperbag waists because I think they’re so flattering & this is no exception (recommend sizing down) – you could also remove the fabric tie & replace it with a woven belt like this one. More skirts that are great for dressing up or down include this leopard midi, this eyelet wrap skirt, this floral print midi & button-front denim skirt.
