Striped tee? Old Navy
Pleat front pants? Old Navy
Trouser socks??, Winners
Booties? Jeffrey Campbell, StyleSense
Jacket? Patrizia Pepe, Winners
Faux-fur scarf? dutch church sale
Quilted purse? Holt Renfrew, thrifted
Anchor earrings? Local(now defunct) boutique...not worn because they match the boats, that was accidental.

Before there was h&m and Forever 21, there was Old Navy. Around here, the evolution of fast and cheap fashion went like so; Old Navy, then h&m and we're just now jumping on the F21 train. If you went to my highschool back in the day, you will remember how excited everyone was when Old Navy opened in Limeridge Mall. And then how excited everyone was the next day when they all wore their Old Navy tees to school.

'Dude, your shirt is totally awesome, it says 'Old Navy' on it in.'

'Your shirt is awesome too... it says 'Old Navy' on it... in sparkles.'

'Hell yeah! I waited in line..."

Anyways, sometimes I forget about Old Navy... but then Katy from Kansas Couture will bust out something really cute and surprise, surprise...it's Old Navy. My bestie told me that it's 50% off the last ticketed price time (this time of year sucks/rocks; there are the best deals but I'm always the most broke) so Matt and I went for cheap thrills. And thrilling it was. I got the jacket in my last post for $13 and then got a ton of basics including these pants (which Katy has along with the jacket ,so I feel like a style suck but it was there and so cute and so cheap) for $5 and the slouchy top for $2. A little bit of fun styling and no one would ever know I got the majority of this outfit from the same place your mom gets her fleece pull-overs.

And in non-fashion news, someone decided Matt and I were responsible enough to take care of 2 young kids for a week. I got maybe an hour of sleep last night and I'm surviving off the adrenalin of getting both kids on the school bus on time this morning. High five to all the moms who read this... so much respect for you. The little girl asked me why I always dress fancy and I just thought 'oh honey, you ain't seen nothing yet!'...

not everyone pulls off old navy as well as you can! it looks so luxe on you... and i definitely remember those tees with "old navy" sparkly screenprint, considering I owned probably 7 of them. love this look, and good luck with the kiddies!

Linda said...

I love the stripey top, and the details on that jacket are awesome! That little girl's gonna leave with a whole new idea about dressed up - I love it!

Thanks, too, for your comment on my blog - well said and thought-provoking (despite your lack of sleep).

I love your look and the photos!! I hit up Old Navy mega sale this weekend and picked up some great stuff. I wish my store would of had that tee though:(

Kansas Couture said...

The pants look fabulous on you! I love the way you styled them. I also have the jacket from your previous post - love it!

Fashion Therapist said...

I agree with you 100% about Old Navy. It's the best place to go to when you need to fill your buying fix without breaking the bank.

Amandromeda said...

Eyeliah said...

I am such an Old Navy fan, (though I usually find it in the thrift store as there isn't one near me). Their pants and skirt fit me so so well.

What Would a Nerd Wear said...

Fabulocity in Amish Country said...

I LOVE this!! And I'm sad to say that I am one of those people that have so rudely tossed Old Navy to the side... this look is making me rethink my decision! Those pants are amazing! The look is awesome... and you look fabulous as always!

Cody said...

(I m posting with my hubs accnt b/c I had to say,)

The poses aren't poses

You rock all styles
Your hair is different
You have tons of shoes!

Yea, my new fav

Leproust Vintage said...

Well shoot! I need to swing by Old Navy! These photos seriously look like they are out of a catalogue! They are gorgeous!

Wear Necessities said...

Wow this is a killer outfit. I seriously love it. I just checked out Old Navy the other day too! Love their ridiculously cheap sale clothes. :)

Pretty much everything here is amazing, but that jacket is f'n ridiculous! By far one of the greatest pieces I've seen in a long time.

Can you believe that none of those stores are anywhere near me. The nearest Old Navy is a half hour away ... in the wrong direction, if you know what I mean.

Chelsea said...

Old Navy, Old Navy! Old Navy performance fleece! That's what I remember about the beginning of the big O.N.

Fantastic finds!

Clare said...

I love this a lot. Especially the stripes and the cuffed pants. Supa-sweet!

3StinkyBoysAndMe said...

I always forget about Old Navy, too. I'll have to check it out again.

Christen said...

I'm honestly in shock that you look this amazing and it's all from Old Navy. I never find anything there! You look crazy adorable - those pants fit you perfectly. And the shoes! Love love LOVE!

issa said...

oooh i absolutely love this look!

Julia said...

Wow, those pants fit perfectly. And your Old Navy memorial made me laugh. I had a shirt with "Old Navy" written on it that I was SO freaking proud of.

Anyway, the striped shirt is perfect with the pants.

piglet said...

Oh my gosh I love this outfit! Those pants are inspiring, I might have to start shopping at Old Navy. Shoes + pants combo is superb. :)
