Working at Gap for 6 years during my high school and college years started one tradition that I have yet to break: stocking up on a few basic fall essentials with my staff discount before the start of the new school year. Although that discount is long-gone now and I'm out of school, I still find that Gap has some great foundation pieces for the start of a new season, whether you're looking for school, work, or weekend-wear. This time around I was particularly drawn to the bright pants and patterned oxfords in plaids and polka dots. I'm also really enjoying the fact that transition colours this year seem to be brighter than the usual subdued hues, like eggplant and hunter green.
