On My Radar: The Gap

Anybody who knows me well would probably be shocked to know that I'm recently loving the Gap. If you know me super-well, you also know that I struggle with calling it "The Gap". There's no "the" on the sign and being the rule-follower that I am, I wanna pronounce exactly what's there. But as everyone calls our local grocery "The Kroger", so goes "The Gap" in my mind. And besides, you sound like a dummy when you say, "I'm going to Gap." It's like you just didn't finish your sentence. "You're going to gap
what?" Therefore, I've succumbed.

Anyway, all that personal confession aside, THE Gap is very cute lately. I have recently documented my obsession with Steven Alan plaid shirts, and they have some that rival these in quality and coolness now. There are so many great, GREAT washes of denim in about a million fits. And while in no way can I vouch for their stretch-out-y-ness, they sure look good on paper. If anyone has tried a pair there lately and can give us a heads-up on whether we're gonna be in Saggy-Butt City if we wear them for more than 2 hrs., please DO TELL.

And I CANNOT forget the Boyfriend Cuffed T. Obsessed (and they're $12.99 each!) Want one in every color. Great for covering the muffin top that everyone but Gisele gets with jeans that actually fit in the waist. But also SUPER cool and current under a fitted blazer with skinny jeans, flats or oxfords, and a great scarf. This will most likely be my spring uni.

Thank you Creative Director Patrick Robinson for helping turn this franchise around. We're pumped to see what you're gonna come up with next!

Cuffed Boyfriend T in tomato, $12.99 (on sale!)

Denim Legging in rinse, $69.50

Denim biker jacket in light wash, $69.50. This would be so cute over spring sundresses! Or over that boyfriend T!
