Style Saturday: 13 February 2016

In the last year or so, I have really come to appreciate the Gap. There are not a lot of stores left in Canada that are appropriate for work and casual for twenty-somethings at the same price-point as the Gap. People suggest J. Crew Factory, LOFT, and similar stores, but the Gap is the only company that I have seen maintain a warehouse in Canada. So, I naturally power-shopped the Gap when West-Jet lost my luggage! Other than my PJ pants from last week, what did I buy? 

Modern V-Neck Fine Stripe Tee 

I purchased these in both the white stripe on navy and red stripe on grey (the latter is no longer available), and these are so. incredibly. soft. I cannot recommend these enough- they are warm for a chilly office but not overly thick, they layer well, and they work for casual wear, as well. I usually wear both of these at least once a week! Fantastic basics- I have an identical navy/white shirt from H&M but this feels much more luxurious. They were 60% off, both under $9 USD!

Mockneck Cable-Knit Sweater

Unfortunately, I accidentally forgot this sweater in M’s car, so I will be waiting until our next visit to retrieve it. Still, it’s warm and comfortable, and the cables are very well-done considering that it is machine made. I purchased the dark grey version for less than $20! Great for that damp cold in Washington.

Boatneck Stripe Slub Tee

I am slightly hit and miss with the Gap Factory- I spend a lot of time looking at clothes there. I check the stitching, look at the composition, garment care, and just general quality. I put back most of what I pick up, but I have found a few gems!  The mint and grey combo caught my eye, and I was even more interested when I noticed the boatneck. This shirt is also soft, and warm when I need it to be! It’s winners like these that make the time spent going through the racks worth it. (I’ve linked to the closest option on the site currently.)
