GAP Style Made Easy!

How often do you get to shop alone without your child hiding in the racks and licking the floor or your poor pitiful significant other whining because men don't want to shop or he is staring at every price tag reminding you how expensive it is?? Am I right or am I right? Well, I had an awesome opportunity to collaborate with our local GAP Valley West Store, shop alone and style a few outfits, and post them here for you to make a list and shop fast and smart! P.S. You can call into the store for them to pull and hold the items or make sure they are in stock for you before you make the trip in! Total time saver. And for the people who started reading this and thought to themselves well "I don't shop there" or "it is too expensive for me", well good new because I am thrifty and I NEVER pay full price for anything at the GAP and I have chosen some trendy pieces as long as closet staples you will wear for years. Number one tip is to get the credit card, no seriously. I do not get paid for saying this (wish I did) but every Tuesday you get an extra 10% off of your purchase so wait until they have 40% off and use your brainer! Plus you will earn rewards for using it and you can use it at Banana Republic, Old Navy, Athleta, and all GAP stores! If you saw my Instastory over on my Instagram @ladyandredstyle,  you heard that I purchased 12 items for $294 and that was with my 50% off and lucky for you, this week is Friends and Family event which is 50% off for you too πŸ˜‰ **March 22-27 50% off in store purchases and 40% off at or GAP factory store**

This look is so classic! The details on this tank are so on trend and comes in a few other colors! Always need a neutral cardigan to layer throughout the year and if you don't own white denim, get yourself some right now! These are super comfy and stretchy! True to size.

How cute are these sunnies? Yes, even I forgot that GAP has sunnies and they are actually really great quality and obviously cute too! This cami is silky and has a pleated detail that is hard to see in this photo but so cute. Pair with a denim jacket if you want low key, wear alone for a date night or put on a cardi for a relaxed look! So so simple! Plus, it is loose so definitely a must for pizza night ☺️

Embroidery is not just for your grandma! This season it is hot and especially paired with an off the shoulder look too! This one is very comfy and loose fit so if you want it to look more "fitted" give it a little front tuck like I did in the image above! I paired it with flats but this would be adorable for a concert paired with boots!

Need a basic pair of skinny jeans? These are your pair! Great color and fit and oh so comfy. Easily could re-wear these a few times in 1 week! This top is light blue stripes with a small bubble like sleeve. It gives it enough of a different look you don't feel like the Michelin man but enough detail to dress up and wear out! Lightweight and perfect transition piece for Spring to Summer.

As good as it gets right here! Comfy slip on shoes, boyfriend sweater and girlfriend style distressed jeans. Oh and these are GAP sunnies again. I love black and gold, it just gives it a little sass. These jeans run true to size but are more relaxed than normal, so comfy and the stripe on the sweater is more interesting than just a plain color.

Pair it with an army green jacket or a bomber jacket for another look this season!

Black Leather Waverly Clutch/Purse

Destructed Mid-Rise Girlfriend Jean

Grey Stripe Scoop Neck Pullover

Riad Layering Necklace- Mixed Metals

Sunglasses are in store!


If you buy one dress this season, please buy this one!! It is so good it hurts! I sized down on this one. The cinched waist tie is enough detail to not have to wear many accessories. The fabric is buttery soft and the color is perfection! This will sell out fast and will be a staple in your closet! Trust me!

Tercel Sleeveless Shirtdress

Put a jacket over it, a bomber, a cardigan for different looks. Pair it with converse shoes, flip flops or short booties like I did. So versatile I could scream!

I look forward to hearing your feedback and hope to bring you more posts like this one since I have been receiving many messages on what pieces I love and friends wanting me to help them manage their closets! I love sharing style with you all and hope you find this helpful. XOXO

My Baby Must Haves

We are quickly approaching the four month mark :( I know people say time flies but seriously, they are not kidding! I often find myself wondering what I did before I had a baby. I took my free time and me time for granted. I realized this yesterday while running errands with my baby. Complete and utter torture, I swear. She hates her car seat so much, I have dreamed of the day when we go back to no child restraints. I mean I would use my Baby K'Tan to strap her to me if that counts? She screamed for about an hour, then after we got home, she was happy as a lark. I am so jealous of the people that can drive around to get their child to sleep. Tummy sleeper problem number 5,000.I unlike most first time moms, did not buy much before she was born. I had no idea what I was getting into and the stuff I did buy, I quickly regretted. A bassinet? Waste. Clothes that have buttons not snaps to fasten. Those people clearly do NOT have children. So I have come up with a list of some of my favorite things this far. I understand every child is different and everyone of these things may not have worked for you, but they would make a great baby gift for someone else to try! >
20140220-094805.jpg 1.) Diapers I started out with Pampers because that is what the hospital uses. They were great until she learned how to blow out of her diaper and ruin outfits daily. Then I had a package of Luvs I got as a gift, too scratchy to me. I have not tried the off brands like Costco because I don't want 500 diapers if I hate them. The verdict in this house is HUGGIES! The cadillac of diapes for us. That little cinch above her booty is ideal, no more blowouts. 2.) Lotion Aquaphilic. Thick, boring, non-scented lotion, non-staining, and non-irritating. I love it for all of those reasons. Pay about $11.00 and find it behind your pharmacy counter, it will last forever. You do NOT need a prescription, it's just so awesome they hide it! I found mine at Target.

20140220-095006.jpg 3.) Shampoo Mustela Foam Shampoo. Craddle cap? Dry, flaky scalp? This is the best! Again, it is a little pricey compared to Johnson's but at $12.00 per bottle, 1 pump per bath is all you need. A friend told me about this and I have never used anything but this. You can find this miracle stuff at Target, Buy Buy Baby, online, and other retailers.

20140220-095055.jpg 4.) Wet/Dry Bags I refuse to carry a diaper bag. I just have an extra large cute purse and throw this amazing bag in it with everything I could need. I carry things like diapers, wipes, lotion (sample size), baby wash (sample size), comb, extra change of clothes, teething ring, paci just in case she changes her mind :), nursing pads, a bib, mini trash bags, and room to spare! The best thing is if she has a blow out, dump the goodies out in your purse and use the bag to keep the wet clothes until you get home, wash it out and re-stock! Buy Buy Baby has these in many colors and sizes.

20140220-095730.jpg 5.) Baby Monitor Since my baby now sleeps in her crib...yes you heard me right! Success and one more thing to check off my bad mom list. I love love my Motorola Digital Monitor 3.5 video MBP 36 baby monitor. I can't imagine how you could improve this thing. First off, you can adjust the camera when they move, talk to them through the monitor, play pre-recorded music, adjust volumes or silence when you are tired of hearing them cry (it has sound-activated lights so you know they are crying, relax), night vision, temperature of the room, set an alarm to wake you up ( why would you ever do that?), and works up to 590 feet. For a mere $239.00 it was the best gift. Just buy this at Buy Buy Baby and use a 20% off coupon! Duh.

20140220-100616.jpg Hello Mom :)

20140220-100954.jpg 6.) Swing 4MOMS brand Mama Roo is really exactly what it says, for moms. This spaceship of a machine takes up little space and does everything but vibrate, not sure why it couldn't? I never read instructions so in the beginning I never used this because my baby likes to sit up and see things. Thanks Google for reminding me I already have a swing that would work. It lays back and sits up with the ease of 1 flap. With many different motion options, nature sounds built in, and a cord to hook up your phone/ipod. Hello Pandora baby station! I promise everything I buy is not that expensive, but this sells for around $230.00. Listen, this is the only swing/bouncer thing we own!

20140220-101952.jpg 7.) Blankets/Swaddlers As pictured above, our Aden & Anais swaddle blankets go everywhere with us! We do not use them for swaddling but they are great for that, great for wearing as a scarf for covering up while breastfeeding, and just a great around the house blankie. They are made from bamboo and are so light and breatheable but also very warm! Amazing! 8.) Baby Carrier My go-to carrier is my Baby K'Tan. Quick, easy, and not much fuss. Best for around the house and fits easily into my purse. The Baby K'Tan is in my size and therefore does not fit my husband, that is one downfall. So our other carrier is the Ergo Baby Performance carrier. I used this for the first time 2 days ago for our first walk outside, perfection. Comfortable and easy to sneak a feeding in under wraps :). I can't wait to try all of the versitle postions this carrier has to offer. That purple thing is my baby :)

20140220-105024.jpg I hope some find this useful as I would buy these over and over again if I ever had more children, which will NEVER happen, so I will share with you all. Let me know if I am missing some of your favorite products. I would love to hear your feedback.
