November Old Navy Favorites & Mini Try On Session

Old Navy is one of my favorite stores because of the great deals on staples they have for women. Trends come and go, but somehow Old Navy does a great job at putting together modern looks in classic styles so you won’t have an item that’s in this season but unwearable the next. I stopped by my local ON to get an outfit for family photos for Royce and saw so many great items for the fall and winter that I had to try a few things on!

For sizing reference, I’m about 5’5″ and 28 weeks pregnant. I’m wearing a medium in both the color-block sweater and the plaid button up, but a large in the red sweater as I wanted to layer it over the plaid button up. The jeans are from their “jegging” collection and SO stretchy and comfortable. They aren’t maternity, but definitely wearable and I love having an option that doesn’t have the belly band! I’m normally a 6 in Old Navy’s jeans but I sized up to an 8 for my bump.

You can shop all the pieces I’ve shared above, plus a few other favorites using the photos below!

Summer Vacation Style On A Budget

Palm print cover up: Amazon | Scalloped one piece swimsuit: Amazon | Stud sandals: Amazon | Kate Spade dupe earrings: Belle & Ten | Tassel clutch: Belle & Ten | Sunglasses: Old, but similar here 

 

When Dougie surprised Royce & I with a trip to Wisconsin Dells, I needed to find an affordable waterpark friendly outfit that could get here in less than a week. Of course my first instinct is to check Amazon as Prime is the greatest invention ever and we rely so much on it. I was so fortunate to find this cute cover up, one piece, and sandals for less than $70!

My favorite piece in this look though is the pom pom + tassel mix clutch! This style is so in (both tassels and straw totes!) and is perfect for packing cash/cards, your phone and keys when heading to the beach. These earrings literally look exactly like the popular Kate Spade square studs that retail for $38. Mine are $9.50 – crazy, right?

On a side note, I know everyone is sharing fall fashion because of the Nordstrom sale but I can’t even think about that yet! We’re still ranging 80s-90s in Illinois. Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited about pumpkin everything¬†and apple orchard visits, but this girl can patiently wait! Plus that means we’re one step closer to winter – no thank you!

Casual in Camo

Pink Blush Jacket Camo Scarf Old Navy Target Velvet Sneakers

Jacket: c/o Pink Blush (camel shown, also comes in cream) | Scarf: Old Navy (sold out, similar here) | Striped tee: Old Navy | Velvet Sneakers: Target | Jeans: Old Navy | Sunglasses: c/o Diff Eyewear (up to 50% off for Black Friday from 11/23-11/27) Photos: Brown Eyes Photography

 

It’s been a while since I’ve done an outfit post and I’ll admit that one huge reason behind that is my lack of “cute” outfits. When I think of outfits to post on here, I usually try to put together something really eye-catching that I wouldn’t wear every day, but I know you probably want practical, casual outfits too! It’s hard to dress up every day (nor do I want to!) but I truly feel SO much better when I wear something other than a baggy shirt and leggings, even if it’s still comfy and relaxed!

Lately when I’ve been shopping I’ve been looking for pieces that I can get more use out of, so this jacket from Pink Blush is a must for every girls closet! It’s more of a shirt jacket and great for layering and super soft. I’ve also worn the striped long sleeve shirt¬†from Old Navy underneath about four times since buying it last month and I plan to buy more in different color options! Every time I go there I end up with way more than I planned on getting, but they have the best basic tees and are ALWAYS running a sale so naturally it’s become one of my favorite stores – Check out this post featuring a ton of their items too.

You may have seen I mentioned that Diff Eyewear is having an awesome Black Friday sale! I love Diff and how much they give back to others, and of course, how cute their sunnies are! What are your favorite Black Friday sales to go to each year? I’m definitely going to take advantage of the deals this year to save on presents for Royce and would love to hear your suggestions!

Ways To Style A Statement Scarf

Tee: Old Navy | Scarf: Old Navy | Jeans: Old Navy | Booties: DSW | Purse: Ross | Necklace: 2911 Design Co

 

Welcome to Mom Style Monday, a monthly link party where my fellow stylish mamas and I share our favorite outfits and trends! There’s a new theme every month so be sure to join in next month with your own Mom Style! This month we’re sharing our favorite fall scarves and how we style them!

I absolutely love scarves and styling them in different ways. I had a phase where I only wore infinity scarves… then it turned into blanket scarves, and now I’m loving lightweight scarves simply tossed around my neck! This scarf is from Old Navy and under $20 – but I scored it when they were having a sale and it was marked down to $10!

Old Navy has been my JAM lately. My entire look minus the booties is from there – if you get their emails, you’ll know that they’ve been having some super good deals so that’s why I keep going back! I also got these booties when DSW had 25% off everything. I’m loving them so much that I might snag them in another color!

Side note: I originally paired this look with white sweater but it was in the high 80s all weekend long. There was NO way I could take photos in that, but this look will be perfect with an off the shoulder sweater too!

Now it’s time to link up! Share your favorite fall scarf style (or any recent outfit post) and be sure to comment on at least one other blog post in the party! Then join us next month (the last Monday of every month) for our next theme: Fall vests!
