Try On Session with Gap Factory

Thank you to Gap Factory for sponsoring the post. 

Today we’re in my closet, putting together a few looks featuring new arrivals from Gap Factory, including some soft and pretty sweaters paired with some best selling denim. I love how these pieces are transitional from winter, into spring! 

And right now is the best time to shop their Winter Clearance Event – up to 75% off + an extra 50% off clearance.

24/7 Split-Hem Cardigan

You know I’m a sucker for a striped sweater, so their 24/7 Split-Hem Cardigan, in navy and white, went right in my cart. It’s split on either side, giving it a lovely drape. The quality is fabulous, done in 100% cotton, with neutral buttons.

Also available in a white and neutral stripe and solid navy, in sizes XS – XXL, I’m wearing the medium. 

I’m wearing it over their Favorite Tank Top, which is, in fact, my favorite tank. I’m sporting it above in white. I also have it in navy and black. If you need to refresh some basic layers, consider picking up a few; they wash wonderfully.

Available in black, white, navy, and gray, in regular, tall, and petite sizes, in XS – XXL. Even though I’m tall, I wear a regular medium. 

And my jeans are the incredible Mid Rise Baby Boots with Washwell. I receive dozens of weekly emails from readers thrilled with these affordable jeans. I can’t say enough good things about them.

I am 5’10 and wearing them in a size 29 regular above. 

Forever Cozy Relaxed Ribbed Crewneck Sweater

I also picked up their Forever Cozy Relaxed Ribbed Crewneck Sweater in Soft Caramel Heather.

I love the simplicity of a crewneck, and this one is elevated just a bit with a pretty detail around the neckline.

You’ll have room in this so I would go down one if you are in between sizes.

Available in six colors in XS – XXL, I’m wearing a medium.

Sherpa Zip Hoodie

For work-from-home days and running to the gym, I picked up their Sherpa Zip Hoodie.

My girls already tried to steal this, so I know it’s a winner. It’s soft, cozy, and just what you want to be wrapped in if you’re like me and trying to manage your job and kids’ snow days.

Also available in brown and black in XS – XXL. I took the large so I had room. I thought this would be cute layered over a winter white turtleneck on a ski weekend.

Splitneck Ruffle Sweater

For a casual date night look, I picked up a lightweight, 100% cotton Splitneck ruffle Sweater. You can tie it at the neck or keep it open like I am above.

I’m wearing it with their High Rise ’90s Original Straight Jeans with Washwell in a light wash. These have very little stretch, so buy your actual size instead of sizing down.


Finally, I ordered a few pieces from their GapFit line to try, and I’m a big fan.

Above, I’m wearing the GapFIt Studio Jacket and the GapFit Sky High Studio Full-Length Leggings.

I took a large in both pieces. Happily, the length of the jacket for my arms is perfect, and I love a thumbhole. Available in XS – XXL. 

The leggings are available in XS- XXL in regular, tall, and petite, in several color options.

Hi Meagan, So two points with questions: 1. I'm in mid-fifties now, and it's a constant battle up and down 25 lbs. I always hate how I look when I'm heavy, so I stop buying anything, and then that trickles down to me not going anywhere with nothing to wear. Do you recommend just having all of these different sizes to accommodate which body I have? (It's overwhelming to organize and to constantly have the current styles in a larger and a smaller size. 2. I live in Los Angeles. This January, I haven't worn a sweater once. In fact, today was 80 degrees. Once every 5-7 years we get a heavy rainfall, but other than that, you see people wearing sneakers, shorts, and t-shirts all practically all year round. I love your clothing, but I don't see anyone around here walking in heels or coats. Can you please do some emails posts for women that live in the Southwestern regions of the U.S.? Thank you and I really enjoy your recommendations.
