GAP goodness

a few weekends ago my mom, sister and I made our way to the Leesburg Pike outlets where I found a soft grey peacoat sweater that reminded me of a less expensive mike & chris hoodie. I haven't bought too many things from GAP since the design vs. retail price just doesn't seem worth it. but upon finding this sweater for $40 it screamed buy me, buy me now.

today i found myself wandering over to the GAP website and clicked on their romantic collection which has the text: sweet, polished vibe with a casual vibe. The color pallete consists mainly of pinks, creams, khakis, bluish-grays, and whites. Materials include cottons, jersey and silk.

My favorite piece from this collection is the cropped bomber jacket for $68.

A chunky, textured basketweave is the perfect counterpoint to the great feminine details, like puff sleeves and a cropped length. An unexpected, edgy belt rounds out the look.

The ruffled cami in Nude Rose is also a wonderfully soft and feminine piece.
