gap floral bomber jacket - on sale!

My friend Katherine sent me a link to this blue floral bomber jacket a few weeks ago. At first I had one of those head-tilting moments, where I thought, “Do I like this? I can’t tell.” It’s a bold, daring print to be sure, but the more I stared, the more I fell in love with it. A jacket like this makes such a playful, feminine statement for spring, and I love the way Gap styled it with booties, distressed jeans, and neutral layers (it plays so well with gray and chambray, no?). I think it would look adorable with white jeans too! Also, I’m having a love affair with that cornflower blue color that’s popping up everywhere, so this little number fits the bill perfectly. Plus, with one of Gap’s nearly daily discount codes, you really can’t beat the price.

Basically, welcome to my inner monologue that convinced me to “add-to-cart”. I’m giving it a try! Would you give a large, floral print like this a try during spring?

Separately, I’ve been interested to see all the new style’s Gap’s been rolling out, especially after reading this article I mentioned a few weeks ago. What do you think? Are you loving their new looks, or have you even noticed a difference?

    Thanks for the link to this article funny enough for the past 2 years I didn’t shop at Gap like I used to but since December I’ve already purchased 3 of their jeans, a white shirt and a tee. GAP is awesome for basics and I did see this jacket but did not take the plunge. I know I won’t wear it that much. Can’t wait to see what this new designer has in store for the brand.

    This is one of those things, that if I saw it on the hanger I would walk right past, but it actually looks amazing on!

    i probably wouldn’t have reached for it myself if i saw it in the store, but the way that gap styled it is just spot on.

    At first it looked too ’90s to me, but it is growing on me. I love how they styled it, but it could also be cute with a simple white or tab dress.

    I had the same initial reaction to the bomber as well, and I bit the bullet and ordered it – it’s gorgeous in person! I love it!

    I wouldn’t usually like something so big and bold… but I kind of LOVE that jacket. There’s something about the print, the fabric, and the colours. Perfection.

    Gap has really been getting it right. I don’t shop there often since I’m small and don’t fit in a lot of their clothes, but I’m constantly window shopping there, and all the outfits they put together are things I wish were in my closet.

    I have noticed a difference, especially this spring line! I didn’t shop at the Gap for several jeans but started checking them out again last year. I like their colored denim and cords. Since I can get 3 pairs for the cost of designer denim, I can indulge my love of shopping a bit more!
