What can I say? Old Navy is hitting it out of the park with their fall clothing lineup! And I feel pretty good about my purchases because one of my favorite style bloggers Audrey at Putting Me Together blogged about the dresses and pants as fall staples a couple of weeks after I made my purchases! #win
Anyways, I had some SuperCash burning a whole in my wallet, so I opted to get a few remixable, somewhat neutral pieces for fall…and to treat myself after my WW adventures. The dresses are perfection, especially at under $20 a pop. And the best part? It’s one of the few dresses I can wear and still pump! (In case you are wondering, I use these when pumping. MUCH better all around!) I also grabbed another pair of my favorite compression capris…a workout staple for me.
I really wanted some pants that A-weren’t jeans and B-fit me without falling down so I ordered these mid-rise pants. I ordered in two sizes and while the larger size fit great in the thigh, it was loose in the waist (I really don’t like wearing belts, either…and the fact that it was mid-rise, the button hit me in a weird spot and I was constantly pulling them up,) On the other hand, the smaller size was perfect in the waist, but tighter in the thigh. Anyone else have this problem?! Needless to say, I went with the smaller size, knowing that pants always stretch out as the day goes on…and I can always do a few lunges in them when I first put them on to “break them in.” Come on, you know you do it too! ;-)
And a few other purchases…
I was curious to try out Lulelemon and see what the hype was about. I got this pair on eBay since there was no way I was going to pay full price and while they are SUPER cute, they really don’t have any advantage over the shorts I can buy at Target. They are pretty well made though, so I have to give them that…and I hear their guarantee is pretty great if their items ever break down. So I’m on the fence with this one…I might sell them on eBay, who knows.
I also wanted a basic striped tee that I can remix with the pants I bought, jeans, leggings, etc. so got this one after seeing it on Fran.
Lastly, I also used some Shopbop credits (and a some of my own money) to purchase this one piece swimsuit. I’ve been on the hunt for a one-piece that is flattering, but still covers and this one does the trick! And it fits great—perfect amount of support and coverage…I LOVE it!
All in all, this month’s purchases were again covered by blog income and eBay sales. Woo hoo! Super pleased with my purchases- all very practical, remixable and fall-like.
