I got a shirtdress earlier in the season from Gap – pintucked and white. It brought me through many hot and sticky days in Asia. Some of my favorite summer basics have been from Gap because they use a lot of cotton. Other brands, even sister brand Old Navy and Anthropologie, have too many clothes with synthetic content. While polyester can be easy to maintain, it’s not breathable, especially in the heat of the summer.
The shirtdress is such a versatile, basic piece and Gap knows it too since the below image showed up in my email today. The accessorizing possibilities are endless. Who else remembers Rachel McAdams’ shirtdresses from Midnight in Paris?
In June, Gap released a new batch of shirtdresses. They mysteriously disappeared after their initial debut on the website (same time as the ballet flats) but I do not think they sold out. When it reappeared in July, they also had petite and tall sizes, which is good. The few reviews posted mention that it is short. Hmm, I really do not mind some more shirtdresses… Make sure to check their website for any discounts.
