spring shopping time with the Gap

With this incredible surge of 70 and almost 80 degree weather in Cleveland, I need new spring clothes. Let's just get right to the point. After digging through my knee-high and Hunter boots in my closet, I found two pairs of cheap (and the best) simple Old Navy flip flops to slip on instead of covering my translucent feet with shoes for the past week, reminding me that I need new shoes stat.

Toms - the perfect casual, kick around shoe, don't you think?

I kept digging through to find a mix of black, grey and navy for summer - navy tank dress, black cropped pants, black tank dress, navy skirt and the list goes on.

I'm in need of some color.

Desperately.

With the help of a 25% code at Gap, I picked up a few basics to add to my closet for spring and clearly one choice was vetted by the one and only Cleshopaholic - when in doubt, email or tweet her.

can never have too many basic white tees in my closet

not sure if yellow is my color or not but I'll try anything once

bold colored pants are all the rage

adds instant color to the most boring outfit

Hands down boot cut. Or curvy. True story - I recently (over past 6 months) have tried on 50+ pairs of jeans and should have started at the Gap since they've always been the only jeans that fit right. Picked up two pairs of premium boot cut (because if you find jeans that fit BUY TWO PAIRS!). Wearing them now.

Katelin said...

i so desperately need new jeans and i seriously want to give those legging jeans a try. or magenta jeans. either or sounds good to me.

Kristin said...

the ponte legging jeans were the BEST. I wish they had them in EVERY SINGLE COLOR!

I like Gap's Long and Lean but would be willing to try skinny colored jeans on to step outside my comfront zone.
