Fashion Spring/Summer

Modern Prep with GAP

February 16, 2022

Thank you to GAP and ShopStyle Collective for sponsoring this post.

Bold colors, happy prints, stripes galore… it’s hard to wear these things and not smile. Sunshine helps too, but I would dare to say the new arrivals at GAP are shooting some serious rays of light. When you think about quintessential GAP, what comes to mind? If the word “preppy” is on the tip of your tongue, then you are in luck because it’s back in a big way this spring. They’ve updated some of their most nostalgic pieces to make them current – yes, my kids are obsessed too. It’s like reliving my childhood minus the really bad haircut. I just wasn’t made to have bangs, but I digress. I have a sneak preview of some of GAP newest “Modern Prep” pieces that I packed on our recent trip to Florida.

One Piece Cut-Out Swimsuit | Headband

What is not to love about this one piece? Let me count the ways….. Ok I have about 5 reasons: good bootie coverage, a fun cut-out that makes it playful and eye-catching, adjustable straps, removable pads, and a print that makes me oh-so happy. I am wearing a size small for reference and recommend sizing up in swim if between. Need another reason to love this suit? It is made with 85% recycled nylon.

100% Cotton Organic Striped Button Down | Denim Shorts | Belt Bag

In keeping with the Modern Prep theme, I love wearing an oversized button-down as a cover up. If it’s not the warmest of beach days, it gives your arms some coverage and can be worn opened, buttoned or tied in the front. I feel like Kate Middleton would approve.

These denim shorts are classic GAP. These have a high-rise fit, run TTS, and good stretch and a 4-inch inseam.

Boys Wearing:

Logo Color Block Hoodie | Swim Trunks

And I had to let my boys get in on the fun. Maybe I got them matching sweatshirts to keep track of them in the airport or maybe I got them matching sweatshirts because they are still young enough to let me….. if my older son was with us, forget about it! I will say, they haven’t taken off these throwback GAP hoodies since they arrived and it makes my 80s baby heart so happy. That classic GAP logo in the front takes me right back.
