My body loves Gap, but my checkbook loves Target.
warm cozy cotton + leggings + boots = my wardrobe of choice
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Here's what's going on at your local Gap this season...
... I love this! Totally something I would try on and then put back on the rack feeling way too guilty to indulge! Let me sum it up for you...
~ GAP ~
black & grey striped tunic sweater: $54.95
black leggings: $19.95
brown leather biker boots: $89.95
= $164.85 + tax
Here's what I found at Target to get this look from Gap for 1/3 of the price...
~ Target ~
cream & navy striped sweater tunic: $26.99
denim blue leggings: $10.00
... and I found these lovely L.L Bean boots at a second hand store for 5 bucks!
I live in them this time of year.
= roughly $45.00 for the whole get-up! Cha-ching.
I asked Nathan what he thought as I modeled the whole deal for him.
"You look like a Gap model! I love it!" ... he said as he boosted my little feminine ego!
So for my boys - I'm constantly on the hunt at local, upscale resale stores for their seasonal wardrobes.
Once Upon a Child is GREAT. I'm addicted. Have to control myself. I also have friends who give us hand-me-downs and I'm a sucker for local mom-to-mom sales.
Here's what Judah's sporting this time of year...
Nautica khakis: $1.00 (mom-to-mom)
Chaps blue button down: $1.00 (mom-to-mom)
Gap grey hoodie: $0.50 (garage sale)
Children's Place brown billed cap: $0.50 (garage sale)
BEAUTIFUL brown leather shoes were a GIFT!
That is $3.00 for some pretty fancy clothes, my friend!
My guess is that all of those pieces BRAND NEW would come up around $75.00.
So will it be...
...for you this season?
Either way, I hope you (and your checkbook!) look and feel fabulous!
