Sometimes I feel like the slowest blogger on earth. lol I didn’t feel so good today. I had the beginnings of a cold, so I spent the day resting. After a productive sleep, including a dream about Gary Busey riding a fleeced warthog. A warthog with a plastic cap on its snout so it didn’t poke anyone and a leather cap on its head a la Snoopy the Red Baron. Busey was dressed like he was riding a hog, as in Harley, but like I said it was a fleeced hog. Fleeced like a sheep. In true Busey form, he was nice & polite and gave a wink and a wave. When I waited tables in Marina del Rey & Malibu he came into both places. He is really personable and acts like he remembers you. Does a dang good job of it. After my wacky dreams and 2 hours of rest, I feel better. So here we go, more irl pics from Old Navy.
Split-neck gauze top – Size S – I reviewed the solid colors aqualicious & navy in this post. I tried on J Crew’s fanfare tunic and I liked it, but kinda didn’t. When it went on sale I knew I’d be getting it because I was a fan of the print & the price. Still not good enough reasons, esp since I have the shorts & the dress. I’ve been strong & passed on it. I’m so glad because Old Navy’s split-neck gauze top in blue combo reminded me of the fanfare. The scale of the print is not the same, but the ON top is how I wanted the J Crew top to look. Purchased ON.
Mixed-Print Split-Sleeve Tunic ($19.94) – Size M – 100% cotton. Machine wash. According to the website, this was in People. Maybe People Style Watch? I didn’t see it until I did one final look-see and I’m sooo glad I did. I love this thing. Those are a pair of J Crew’s crazy pants. I can’t remember the name…something tweed…? Size 6 on those.
I’m also really glad I tried it on because M was a perfect fit. Didn’t even bother w/the S.
French terry pullover ($17.94) – Size M – I bought this awhile back and returned it. It reminded me of the Spindrift sweatshirt at a fraction if the cost. I didn’t mind it being poly cotton, but the color was too drab. I got the pink colorblock one ($19.94) called high times.
Smocked-gauze Mexicali skirt – Size M – I totally buy skirts like this and don’t wear them. The dilemma is a top that’s short enough but doesn’t make me look dumpy. I think the solution is a shirt tied at the waist. I’m wearing the
Striped jersey-tank dress – Size M – I mentioned this in another post. Only $15. A great buy. It’s on the thin side, but I think in the summertime many of us would feel comfortable with the weight. It didn’t seem to cling in a bad way. I will probably belt & cardi it.
Striped racerbank tank dress ($15) – Size S – Too small. I didn’t like this color for my skin tone, but if I were getting it, I’d get a M.
No, UPS counter lady from last week, we are not expecting a 2nd baby. Nice try, though. What can I say. My remaining weight has collected into a nice little 3-4 months along belly.
Striped racerbank tank dress ($15) – Size M – Now this is the same style, but I liked the wider stripes & black/white combo.
Aw, it’s blurry. But you can see the racerback. I have a few stripe dresses, so that was a detractor. Otherwise my stripesick self would’ve been all over this.
Denim jacket ($34.94) – Size S – Quite the bargain if you’re getting 30% off. I have this in white.
It runs TTS. I’ve tried the M on and it didn’t fit right. I will need to drop weight if I want to button my white size S. I usually don’t button denim jackets, though, so I’m ok w/the fit as-is.
Buttoned 3/4 sleeve top – Size S – I bought this and returned it. I bought it because it reminds me of J Crew’s silk rhea popover in paisley. I know….paisley vs stripes, a stretch. However, the color idea is there and I own the rhea in paisley so trust me on this one. I haven’t worn the rhea because it’s silk & I’m still breastfeeding. I went ahead and got the Old Navy top in size M because it’s machine washable and I’ll definitely wear it within a week or two. I will probably do gold layering necklaces and red shoes. I don’t mind wearing necklaces. I just take them off when I breastfeed. Not too much trouble.
So look…J Crew vs. Old Navy
Printed canvas shorts ($24.94) – Size 8 – I like this print. It reminds me of J Crew’s black blossom. I think it would look good w/a blue chambray top or other blue tops. Pass on these for me, though.
Boat-neck 3/4-sleeve shift – Only $15. Super cute. I didn’t see this in the store. I would probably just pass S and try M in this so the shift look is there. Dresses like these and boat shoes, ballet flats, low wedges or thongs are my spring/summer go-to look.
Did you make it this far? FYI, I think ONSTUFF30 for cardholders. and ONSAVE20 are good thru 11:59PST tonite, Sun, 4/29. I sure hope I got the PST part correct if there’s something you’re aiming to buy.
