A new Old Navy store recently opened just a few miles away, so I was super psyched to see that they had some pretty big sales going on! I treated myself to some cold-weather favorites, but the prices in the store were actually much, much cheaper! This just goes to show that the online sales aren’t always the better deal. You gotta do your style research!
There’s nothing that I love more than a cozy, but stylish top to pair with jeans & boots for a fall day. Even though this past weekend was very summer-like in the 80s, I’m happy to say that I’m refreshing my fall / winter wardrobe on a budget. I love the shawl collar cardigan ($34.00), also available in red. You can layer it for much colder says over a button down shirt, or put it over a summer top with a denim skirt. I did go home with the cropped fleece jacket ($20.00), but found that the charcoal was better suited for my style. It’s the perfect way to complete your look without breaking out the down jacket when it’s really not too chilly out.
I know my friend Laurie would love the collared breezy blouse ($27.00) for its versatility & earth-tone. It comes in growing green, frosty peach, black jack, & brown animal print in sizes XS – XXL. It’s a stylish basic to go under a sweater vest, with wide leg trouser jeans, belted under a cardigan, or worn open with a graphic tee & skinny pants.
For something heavier, the cropped cowl neck sweater ($29.00) is just the piece to dress down leather leggings, brocade cigarette pants, or a tweed pencil skirt for weekend events or day gatherings. If you’re just not ready for all that bulk, the dolman-sleeve cardigan ($25.00) is a smart way to dress up some basic slacks, or wear your sparkly flair at the office.
Lastly, I also found a home from the preppy ‘plumonade’ mini cable-knit v-neck sweater ($22.00), which is also available in black jack, bright white, baby spinach, crimson & clover, oatmeal heather, & medium heather gray. It’s great for a pencil skirt & patent leather belt, or worn over a collared shirt for a job interview.
