What the hell Gap? For years I've avoided you, passed you by with only a quick  glance at the window to confirm yes, you're not my style. Previously I'd go in, look around and walk out empty handed because the clothing was so plain and well, boring!! Maybe that was because I only checked out the one in my (small) home town? The Ottawa Gap at the Rideau Centre is filled with great stuff, lots of fun colours and prints that appealed to my inner hippie. When I saw the paisley print bag I remembered this post and thought sweet, this would make a great purse!

  1. I'm honestly shocked that the Gap would even have anything like that. I never stop into their shops either, it's too blah and boring but maybe they're starting to change around.

  2. You look lovely. GAP seem to have much nicer stuff in nowadays :) x

  3. Very nice out fit hopw you have great saturday xox

  4. em k, glad you found some things you liked, & were pleasantly surprised. :) the neutrals of the lace kimono & the shoes look great with the blue shades & pattern mix of your summer outfit. i admire your jewelry too. i've only ever bought a couple things from Gap that i no longer own.

  5. wow I would've never guessed those shorts were from the GAP, they are such a nice color & print ! I love the way you styled them with a flowy kimono, it looks very summer chic :)



  6. I agree with the rest!! Gap coming with such a cute vintage print is something I never expected!!! You've carried it really well though!!!

  7. Honestly, I don't think that you can ever show us a bad outfit. I love everything you share with us! You wear blue very well. You look amazing!

  8. Love your bag and the way you mixed prints! Very cute.


  9. What an amazing print combination! I love this outfit.

  10. I love yours bracelet!

    Take care :)

  11. I agree, Gap's stepped up their game lately! Unfortunately I find Jacob's headed in the opposite direction. Love your cute kimono.

  12. You have such a cute style! I really enjoy your outfit posts and just followed ^^ Love the mix of prints in this outfit; you look great! I've always found GAP to be a bit dull as well. I do love their 1969 legging jeans though.

    P.S. I'm holding a giveaway right now; would love for you to check it out!

  13. I feel the same way about The GAP and always avoid it because the clothes are always boring and not intising. Nice finds! I really love the cardi on you.

  14. I love these shorts!

  15. I like that you folded the bag into a clutch! Such a simple but smart idea.


  16. Amazing!! I love all of these colours combined, so summery :)

  19. Wait...those are from Gap??? I used to shop there religiously, only to give up on them after too many disappointing trips in to the store. But those shorts are beyond fab! I may have to order them now... :)
