Autumn Basics at the Gap

For me, one of the most important parts of my wardrobe is having a good selection of basics. I learned early on that once you have that covered, it is easy to fill in the rest.  Who doesn't just adore a well-fitting pair of jeans with a top that flatters you in all of the right places.  My go-to store has changed over time, due to both my changing tastes and those of the people that buy or design for the store.  Lately, I have found myself turning to the Gap for most of my basics needs.

Admittedly, I was not a fan for a while before this.  I had stopped shopping at the Gap for a few years, because I could find anything there that I would actually wear.  Then about 2 years ago I found myself back in the store, and excitedly choosing several items that I NEEDED to try on.  A love affair as born that day.  Ever since, I have been hooked.

I have put together a college with some of my favorite items that I have been stalking casually visiting at my local Gap store.  I have a feeling that a few of them will end up on my recent purchases list soon.  How cute are the suede wedges?  And who would have thought you could find such a cute leather shift?  Plus, everything goes on sale at one time or another, so I hardly ever end up paying full price.  Winning!

Have you been to a Gap lately?  Did you like what you saw?  Where do you find yourself purchasing your basics these days?

Lastly, please don't forget about my giveaway.  Get all of the details here.  Entering is easy-peasy-lemon squeazy.  All you have to do is follow.  I look forward to hearing from you!

I was never really a fan of the Gap until this season. I'm also stalking a couple of pieces from there-two amazing leather jackets and their colored denim selection! I've already added them to my fall shopping list! xoxo Marissa

I just love me some GAP they always have the cutest stuff. I use to think of GAP as the preppy store but now their store is evolving into so much more :)

Nice picks I'm loving the scarf and stripes

You've picked well Erin! I always find Gap very hit & miss, so i don't tend to shop there. They're better for mens clothes xoxo

I love Gap! I just rediscovered it a few months ago, after not being able to find things there really for a few years. But now, I love shopping there again!!

I was like the Goldilocks of jeans. They were either too high or usually too low, nothing was just right. The Gap has a nice mid rise on most of their jeans. Almost all my jeans are from there now.

I am also a fan of good basics to build a versatile wardrobe.

I am an Ann Taylor fan, but I have picked up a few thing at The Gap in past.

I am the same exact way! I lost interest in Gap until Patrick Robinson started designing for them-then I fell in love again! I am dying for that leather shift dress! Gorgeous!

I've become a fan of the gap probably within the last year and a half. They have so many great basics and classic pieces. Love your picks, they are all great for this fall season!

I don't really shop there but surely use them as inspiration for outfits. But I want those skinny cords.
