Hooded toggle coat ($79.94) comes in dark charcoal grey or navy. Only regular sizes, XS – XXL.
Size S – I am usually a S or PM in Old Navy outerwear. This fit exactly. I had a very thin sleeved blouse under, so I would need to go for a M for a thin sweater layer. That’s about all I need to wear to stay warm in my mild climate. I love the large pockets and their shape. I’m 37″ across the fullest part of my chest and height is 5’2.
I got it buttoned up just fine, but I could feel it tight in the sleeve when I pulled. That made me realize M would be a better fit.
Size S – Same coat as above. The navy looks great, too. I didn’t think I liked those white toggles and I’m still not sure I do. They’re a nice contrast, but I just see dirt coming along to rest on them. When I buy outwear at low prices, I don’t expect them to last forever, so it’s something I can overlook. That is, if I cleaned the jacket and they looked dingy, I’d just let go of it.
Plaid pea coat ($59.94) runs regular XS – XXL, petite XS – XL & tall S – XXL. Two color choices, both reviewed here.
This was 50% off on Wed, 11/12, in-store. That promo might still be going thru the weekend.
It’s currently $42 online + 35% off w/CHEER = $27.30.
Size S – The fit on this one had a little more room than the one above. I would stick to my usual size of S. Again, I’m not sure how many layers you can get under, but if you need to fight freezing temps you know not to try it in this.
Because it’s featured in a commercial and Amy has been been photographed wearing it, there are a lot of these coats available. There’s a chance you might bump into someone wearing the same thing. Something to consider if that would bother you. I didn’t get it because just the nite before I’d risked this Forever21 red plaid coat on final sale. It’s much darker and the style is longer than this one, but I do really like it. I also don’t think I’ll bump into anyone wearing it.
Wool-blend pea coat ($59.94) runs regular XS – XXL, petite XS – XL & tall S – XXL. There are 7 color choices.
This was also 50% off on Wed, 11/12, in-store.
It’s currently $30, $36 & $40 online + 35% off w/CHEER. That makes the pretty and tempting winter wine color $19.50.
Size S – Another one that was a tight fit in my usual size. There’s a chance that a different size S might have more room and fit better, but I have a feeling they might be running a bit smaller this year.
Great color. I like the contrast with the black I had on. I’ve been wearing a lot more darker colors this year. I don’t wear J. Crew’s black, rib-stitch cardi, but you’d think I do based on my Instagram. For very classic colors like black, grey and camel, I prefer to spend more if I can. I think those colors deserve the best that one’s money can buy. However, stage in life (e.g. in the process of losing weight, raising a small child) can be the strongest factor. I bought a lot of easy to wash or wear items when Mini G was an infant.
Plaid ankle pants ($34.94) run 0 – 20. Regular length only. No petite or tall options.
Size 6 – I saw these on a couple of Instagrammers and thought they were cute. I prefer my plaid pants to be darker in color, like black watch or red & black plaid. These are cute, though, and didn’t look like pajama pants. I’m 5’0″ so they are regular length on me, not ankle.
The fabric wasn’t great. It’s not bad, but Old Navy has produced some great, basic pants in nice cotton fabric. This felt a little thing. On the inexpensive side. Of course I set my expectations based on the price, but I’m also comparing them to pants I currently own and ones I’ve owned in the past. The boyfriend skinny khakis are a good sMaCkDowN J. Crew’s cotton campbell capris. I have the ON boyfriend capris in navy and wore them a few times right after receiving them. I have a regular size 6 (not petite). I had the Campbell capris in navy and returfned them because I never wore them.
I knew these probably weren’t going to fit well when I saw them on the hanger. They clearly have space and shape for hips that have curves on the sides. My curve is in the back and I never fill out shapes like these. That’s one reason why they’re bunching at the sides and well, all across the front.
Thanks for visiting!
