See that tiny smirk on my face (above)? I was attempting to channel ‘The Boss’ vibes…just the tiniest bit, but I can never keep a straight face. Never haha. BUT…
Iconic rock star album covers aside, there’s nothing more classic + Americana than denim, friends. Gap has been making some of the best denim pieces for years, and, based on my recent outfits, they continue to knock it out of the park.
Gap Jeans: The Base Of A Good Denim-On-Denim Outfit
Yep. I’m still a jeans-in-summer gal, for real. I know we have it good here in the Pacific Northwest, where it doesn’t typically get too hot and the evenings still cool down, so I swear by summer outfits that include my favorite closet item: jeans.
Plus, when I’m going out to eat, or attending any casual events in the summer, I never feel like my cutoffs are the right choice. Daytime BBQ or river hang? YES. But for evening soirees that require sitting in the grass, going out to a restaurants, or any other similar activities, give me my jeans.

Gap’s Barrel Jeans have the coolest, updated shape that I’m digging these days, paired with a really classic wash. They’re comfy but not too thin, plus flattering and fit true to size. Despite the fact that they’re 100% cotton, these jeans aren’t rigid or stiff. They’re soft, AND have some structure.
The barrel jeans hit at an ankle length, perfect for summer. I’m wearing my typical size 28 here in the regular length (I’m 5’4″ tall). These jeans are available in tall and petite sizes, too, and are offered in a non-distressed option here. They’re such a great find, at a great price point.
Last but definitely not least, can I tell you about this incredibly soft bandana? I tied it on the bag here (for a fun pop of color!) but I also love wearing it as a headband.
I don’t even know what magically light soft fabric this bandana is, so have no fear, it’s not one of those stiff crunchy kinds that will stand up on its own. This is like one of those bamboo swaddle blankets I couldn’t get rid of after my daughter was no longer a tiny baby. You know the ones.
Anyway, Gap, can you please make an entire bedding line in this fabric? K thx.

There we have it, friends. Not surprising, your pal Laura is bringing you a denim-on-denim look. My love for Gap denim and chambray runs deep and I’ve been wearing Gap essentials for years. I love that I could pop by my local store to pick up this cool straw bag that I ordered online, too! What a great feature. Of course, I also found a few other cute, cute things when I went in.
Hope you have some fun upcoming summer events with the fam, peeps! Until next time…
