What I'm Wearing:

I have always loved Gap and when I was younger, I thought it was simply the COOLEST brand ever. I was so obsessed with Gap hoodies (anyone else?) - it was one of the absolute MUST-HAVE item of the 90's and I had one in all of my favourite colours! All the cool girls at school had a Gap hoody. It has been a while since I bought anything from their store but I’ve recently been reacquainted with this well-loved global brand once again and I got reminded as to why I adored them so much.

I’m pleased to see that the quality of the clothes hasn’t compromised or changed one bit. This beige coat from their new Autumn range is something that WILL last forever. And from the first touch, from the first moment when you get a feel of it, you’ll know exactly what I mean. It just feels.... quality. And that's one thing I miss a lot on the high street.

I haven’t owned a coat like this for years. It's got style, AND substance in that it's actually going to keep you warm! When I'm wearing it, I do feel a bit like Kevin's Dad in Home Alone, but I’ve wanted a camel coat for ages and I think this one is perfect. What do you girls think? It has been perfect for Bonfire night, long Autumn walks in the park, a rainy commute to work.

The thing I like about Gap is that their clothes are straight-forward and non-fussy. Sometimes all you want is a simple top, or a simple pair of trousers, and in this case, a simple coat. With nothing frilly, no cut-outs, no embellishment. JuIt takes the trouble out of shopping when you’re looking for something specific and you know you’ll find it at Gap.

Take the velvet A-Line skirt I’m wearing, for example. The velvet is lovely, padded fabric (not that cheap material that sheds everywhere), the skirt is lined AND it has two deep pockets. It’s quality and details like this that makes me want to go in to the shop and buy the skirt in every colour… just like I used to when I was younger (and slightly more frivolous!). It’s a strange thing for a fashion blogger to say but I don’t really care too much about the trends these days. I want quality. I want an item of clothing to last a long time. And I think Gap offers everything I’m looking for.

  11. Thanks for reminding me of my GAP hoodie days - I swear I never took it off. Gap isn't a shop I tend to go to but remember loving it when I was younger. The camel coat is lovely, such a timeless piece (and keeps you warm!), love the way you styled it.
