I haven’t done a Friday Favorites post in awhile, but I couldn’t resist sharing today.
While there is so much hype surrounding the Nordstrom anniversary sale (and with good reason-deals are crazy good!), I need to show a little love for one of my absolute favorite stores. Gap! The Friends and Family sale opened yesterday for cardholders, but will start today and go through the weekend for everyone else. It applies at both Gap and Gap Factory, too! To receive, use promo code FFSALE 🙂 A few years ago, our town ditched the regular Gap store (womp womp) but they put in a new Factory store. Most items in that stores are ALWAYS on sale at least 20-30% off, if not more. And with this sale, everything is an additional 40% off! So some items may be marked at 50% off, and then you take another 40%. This is when I stock up on fall items for my little guys. What is better-Gap Factory, which almost never has free shipping when you shop online, is offering free shipping this weekend! So, if you have any $$ left over after all of your Nordstrom splurges, check out some of my favorite items listed below!
1. Chino Pants
I am really loving the look of Chino pants. They are dressy enough for work, but with the cropped and rolled bottoms they transition well for more casual days. I LOVE this gorgeous pink color, and you can’t go wrong with this classic color. For a bit more fun look, this railroad style is adorable too. And HELLO, already on major sale plus 40% off. Practically free, right? (I don’t think my husband understands my mathematical equation to determine free shopping).
2. Baby Jams
Any of you who have been reading my blog for awhile likely know of my love for jammies for my littles. There is just nothing cuter (or more squishy) than a baby in pajamas. I have my eye on this fun shark set. Jackson is obsessed with basically anything on wheels, so I am thinking this pair is a must! And I can’t forget about my sweet Lincoln. We have swaddle blankets from Gap, and this pair will perfectly match one of them. Nothing better than coordinating blankets and jams!
Now that I am back to work, I am slowly working my way out of the jean shorts and t-shirt look I rocked all summer. Nothing is better for transitional months than dresses when it comes to work. You can pull off the bare leg during the early fall, and once winter comes, just throw on a pair of tights and some boots and you are good to go! I really don’t know if you can beat a classic t-shirt dress, and the words ‘soft spun’ are winning me over. Throw on a jacket or a cardigan and a cute necklace with one, and you’re golden! Chambray is still in style and likely won’t be leaving anytime soon, so a fun shirt dress like this one is a must. And I really think I HAVE to have this popover dress. I love the print, color, and style, and think it will be so cute and versatile throughout all of the seasons!
Gap has great jeans for the entire family. My absolute all time favorite jeans for Jackson have always come from the Gap. They are just SO cute. I love the elastic band on these, which is so much more comfortable for the kids and easy for mom! The detailing in the lined material on this pair is so precious and perfect for keeping baby warm. And you can’t forget about you! I have been loving boyfriend style jeans lately, they are so comfy! And offer some forgiveness for that postpartum body, ifyouknowwhatimean. This pair has a great wash, and is another #saleontopofsale item. WIN. For a darker wash more appropriate for fall, you also can’t go wrong with this classic color.
I know, I know. It is sweltering outside and the last thing anyone really wants to think about right now is their winter coat or jacket. But HELLO I live in Minnesota and it is freezing approximately 8 months out of the year. It really pays to stock up on these items when you can get them at these great discounted prices! I love every.last.detail. about this trench, the color, cut, and detailing are just spot on. And that price for a trench? YES please! For a more fun look, I really am dying over this leather moto jacket. It seems well worth the investment, and something that could be worn for years to come. Gap always kills it on their puffer vests, and think I may have to add one to my wardrobe this year. Jackson had a Gap coat last winter and it was great, warm, thick and durable. I am thinking I will definitely be investing in another one for him this year, and love the blue color on this one!
What are your must haves for fall? I am so ready to transition into warm, cozy clothing in another month or so! With a pumpkin spice latte in hand, of course. #sobasic Happy weekend, all!
