Remember Fruit Stripe Gum? The gum that was delicious for literally 0.97 seconds then tasted like plastic? When I saw this sweater during the holiday season in a window display at the Gap, I instantly had to have it, because it reminded me of said gum, but unlike the gum, I figured this sweater would have longevity in my clothing arsenal because of the dozens of possibilities I can pair it with! Also can you tell I was battling a fucking horrible cold when these pictures were taken? Be honest. 😂
I’ll be real with ya’ll, I haven’t stepped into a Gap in quite awhile. Their stuff is extremely boring and their clothes run exceptionally large *shakes fist at vanity sizing again* but I went in to get this sweater, unfortunately no XS or smalls to be had. I ended up ordering it online, and decided to roll the dice with a small, because XS was completely out of stock. I would have liked the XS, but it’s cozy and comfy.
On my Instagram, I said this burgundy repp stripe and crest Izod bowtie was straight out of Hogwarts, and it does have that vibe, but “Dead Poets Society” could also work.
