Good morning readers! Just time for one more cuppa coffee before I return to the working week. I’ve just returned from the Big Apple, New York City. I had a great time, but I have to tell you, New York was hot! The heat was a far cry from the moderate temperatures that I enjoy here in Los Angeles, near the beach. I arrived in NY with my LA Maxi dresses, business clothes (black pants suit) and assorted casual Ts and tops. But I have to tell you, nothing kept me as cool running around the city as my 100% cotton, Gap “Fluttered T-top” (pictured above.) So this is my tip du jour. If you find yourself in the hot zone, put on some comfortable 100% cotton. Nothing breathes like cotton, to help keep you cool. Even when it’s 100 degrees. This little top is now on sale at the Gap for $24.99 US. The tag on the top noted is was made from recycled fabric, so kudos to Gap for being eco-friendly.
Another comfy top, although it’s a a blend of cotton and rayon, is this little floral pin tuck top. To me, this is reminiscent of the 1940s floral look with the little patterns against the solid background. This top is super light and sheer. And, it’s on sale for 50% less that it’s original sale price.
My final Gap tip is the current $20.00 savings offer on their new 1969 jeans. Check it out at Gap.com. Everyone can use jeans for summer or fall fashion. This is a look that has been in style since Levi Strauss launched them in the late 1800s!
