Gap - January

Last week I braved the mall again while on pursuit of birthday cards, so I used this occasion to check out  the Gap and Banana Republic. At the Gap, the Fisherman Mac sizes XS (left) and S (right) were among the new arrivals right at the front of the store. This jacket fits large but it has an interior cord that can be tightened for a more fitted look. It's made of waxed canvas, it's lined and it's machine washable. The two colours it comes in are 'true indigo' and 'coral blaze.' The 'coral blaze looks orange in the photo, but it's definitely more coral.

Also among the new arrivals was the Harbor Jersey Stripe Top (size S, my usual size in tops). I really liked the thick jersey this top is made of. There are also solid versions in the store which I cannot find on the website.

What else I'm liking? The Anchor Sweatshirt (all cotton):

Harbor Jersey Striped Dress is made of the same cotton as the Harbor Jersey Stripe Top above. It comes in 3 colours and my favourite is the red striped one.

The 1969 Chambray Dot Boyfriend Shirt is the new version of the Polka Dot from last year (pics here).

There is also a floral version called 1969 Western Floral Shirt, if you prefer a darker colour and snaps instead of buttons:

Bright Floral Scarf in both colourways:

It seems stripes and dots are here to stay. Will you be getting any (more) of them?

Thanks for dropping in and hope you are all having a great start of the week!


  1. Loving the stripe top and dress. the anchor sweat shirt is cute... I really like your blog title :)


  2. I tried the striped dress one day and it looked great. Not so great the next time I tried it on, so I passed. I may try it again. I like the fabric & fit. The Mac jacket looks good in red & I love the elbow patches on the striped top.

    1. The fabric is great, isn't it? Love the Mac jacket too.

  3. I keep telling myself that I do NOT need any more striped shirts. Sigh.

  4. LOVE that harbour top on you, great fit. Like wellfedfred I keep telling myself no more striped shirts and yet I keep buying them and loving them. Next I should get a dotty one to mix it up a little...

    1. Thanks, Jody! If you want dots, check out the Silky Dot Tee from Madewell. It's really cute!
