Being on vacation means feeling relaxed and casual and you can do that by simplifying your wardrobe. You can’t get more basic than jean shorts and a t-shirt. And you can’t get more classic than pieces from The Gap.
North Carolina was hot and humid when we visited so keeping cool was a must. Dressing in light colors and a loose fit helps. Make sure to pack soft, breathable fabrics when traveling to warm locales.
The white cotton t-shirt with blue and green stripes from The Gap has the perfect feminine fit – not too tight and not too fitted. White shorts can be difficult to find. You want to make sure they are crafted from a quality, opaque fabric. White is not as forgiving as other colors, so these Gloria Vanderbilt cotton jean shorts were just right. I added in my own flip-flops, aviators and my favorite silver and sea glass necklace.
The Gap’s quality and style stand the test of time. When I find pieces from their brand at Goodwill, I know they have a lot of life left in them and still have the simple, classic look. They are mostly known for their denim, but you can often find simple t-shirts, button-down shirts and sweaters. Fall into The Gap, but at Goodwill!
Happy Thrifting! Kirsten
