A Gap Giveaway

2013 February 22

When Gap asked me to try out their new 1969 Skimmer jeans and style them five ways (see my styles here) I had no idea that these pants would turn out to be my new favorite jean. Since last weeks post I’ve unintentionally styled a dozen other looks with these skimmers simply because I wear them so often. Like I said, I LIVE in my jeans!


Now onto the good stuff…

Because I love them so much, I’ve decided that all of you should own a pair of my new favorite jeans as well. Now through February 27th all Gap Skimmer jeans are $20 off* in stores which makes it easy and affordable to get yourself a pair.


To sweeten the deal I am giving one reader a $50 American Express gift card to go shopping with! All you have to do is leave a comment here on the blog telling me how you will style your new Gap Skimmers.



For an additional chance to win:

Post your favorite photo from my Gap shoot on your Instagram with the caption:
“Loving how @freutcake styled her new #gap Skimmer! #denimevolved”

Entries must be posted by this Wednesday, February 27th by 8 am PST. One winner will be chosen at random and announced same day.

* Certain Restrictions Apply. Regular Price Styles only. For a Limited Time only.

AdvertisementPost Sponsored by Gap. All opinions about the clothing are my own. The New 1969 Women’s Skimmers are the fit of the season now at $59.95.

    I’d get some bright colored skimmers – teal, or maybe red, and pair them with a crisp white button down, my black and white polka dot blazer, and black pointy flats!

    I think I’d keep it simple–flowy top and solid blazer. Thanks for the giveaway!

    This is awesome since I just ran to the Gap today for the promotion and bought the Skimmers in the chamo print! I’m thinking of pairing them with the mint sweater that I bought there today (at 40 percent off!). What can I say, I love the Gap! Awesome giveaway!

    I’d love to pair a bright pair of Skimmers with a classic stripped top or solid V neck Tshirt and a neutral blazer or leather jacket until the weather warms up. Love this giveaway! Hope to win 🙂

    I too live in my jeans – they are the best foundation for an outfit. My fave way to wear skimmers is to pair them with brightly colored shoes (like lemon yellow huaraches from Frye), a white cotton T-shirt, and a big, long, beaded necklace. It always feels effortless and is an easy way to show some personality. Leah, such a great giveaway. It was fun to see the “sneak peeks” on your Instagram feed since I love shopping at GAP!

    I would pair together the peach polka dot skimmers and a gray sweater with a big, neon pink heart on it. I love those colors for the transition from winter to spring.

  39. February 23, 2013

    My favorite way to style my skinnys (or skimmers in this case!) is cuffed at the bottom with some cute heels, a tee, and a dramatic scarf. It’s so hard to go wrong with that look!!

    I am in love with the polka dot skimmers. Since it is still cold in New York I would most likely style them with a jcrew purple and gray color blocked sweater.

    The Gap Skimmers are not only the hottest pant for transitioning to Spring but also an amazing cut for my petite figure! I would love to pair bold black and white stripes with a bright pair of Skimmers or I would pair a conversation print with patterned Skimmers in likeness to freutcake’s!! Last to polish it all off, a lovely statement necklace and nude flats!!!

  48. February 24, 2013

    Yay how awesome! I really love the floral ones they have right now, and I would style it with a simple white tee just to let the jeans steal the show, but probably wear them with some leopard flats or booties 😉

  49. February 24, 2013

    I’d style it with a black top and red lipstick!

  50. February 24, 2013

    Not only is the Gap Skimmer pant the perfect transition into Spring, it is also an amazing fit for my petite body! I would love to pair the Skimmer with bold black and white stripes if they were brightly colored ones, or I absolutely love how Freutcake has paired the two conversation print with patterned Skimmer! To polish the look I’d add a statement necklace and nude flats.

    Pair a dark pair of 1969 with a white cord jacket and hoodie for a casual look for work while staying warm!

  52. February 25, 2013

    Great timing for this giveaway – I’ve been obsessing over GAP skimmers since your post. I’d wear mine with smart heels, a loose top and a blazer for a meeting-free day at the office.

    I would style them with my bright blue Where the wild things are vintage print t-shirt, my trusted old brown leather jacket and brown leather ankle boots. Oh and my super sized John Lennon sunglasses (hoping for some sunshine!). Still warm enough for the end of winter but definitely moving towards spring! 🙂

  63. February 26, 2013

    I’d want bright skimmers to liven up my mood. I’d pair it up with a chambray shirt and my cute Cole Haan oxfords. Although since we are in the dead of winter, I’d have to wait until spring to sport this outfit.

  64. February 26, 2013

    The possibilities are endless! But I would mostly wear them with my favorite cotton T!!

  65. February 27, 2013
