  1. I love the Limited sweater in the first picture. Is it from the recent collection?

  2. Alicia, I think I've had that Limited sweater since high school. :-)

  3. Darn. Thanks anyways! Love your blog and am new to reading it! Loving the tips I am getting for the fall. :)

  4. Have to ask ... about 2 years ago, Gap changed their jeans. Now they're so thin. Am I the only one that noticed and/or hates them?!?! It's been 2 years (I think) ... and I'm still in mourning :-(

  5. I love both looks....Kate looks so cute in the pic you posted....great inspiration!

  6. I'm so jealous! I love anything military inspired and this color looks amazing against your tan and hair :-). I would have never thought to pair it with a skirt, but the look is fabulous. Happy Wednesday!

  7. I know I rarely comment but I had to click out to tell you that I am in LOVE with both of these looks! You are the most stylish girl ever. XOXO

  8. I'm loving the green jacket, I bought a similar one a few months ago from Abercrombie & Fitch. Abercrombie & Fitch is having a sale: 50 % off on redlines, plus an addition 20% off your purchase. Just mention that you received an email about it. Banana Republic is having having a sale too, its 40% all redlines.

  9. love the new jacket!!

    random question, I notice you wear belts a lot. are they usually worn in belt loops or just laying on your waistline? if they are not looped in, how do you get them to stay in the same place all day without re-adjusting many times? (that always seems to be my belt issue)

  10. Thanks everyone!!

    Katie, I just started buying Gap jeans within the past 2 years, so not sure if the quality has changed. I absolutely love them though! The fit for me is perfect!

    Katie G, great question! Most of the time I don't use belt-loops. I don't punch new holes, I just move the metal "tongue" all the way to the side so I can make it any length I want. Then by tucking in the end, it creates leverage that keeps the belt in place. Not every belt will do this, it needs to be a pretty soft leather (not super-stiff), but it should work without any new holes!

  11. ЎUf, me gustу! Tan clara y positiva.
