Instagram Roundup #16: GREAT Old Navy Jeans and $10 Dress + Coats + More

Been a while since I've done an Instagram roundup, so I've got quite a few outfits to show.  I felt really compelled to do this because there are some GREAT Old Navy pieces I've been featuring on IG that I need to let you all in on!  

If you don't follow on Instagram, you can still shop my feed in realtime from the sidebar on this blog.  Look to the right and you'll see a "Shop the Feed" section with my latest Instagram posts.  If you click on one of the images, the outfit along with all the pieces will pop up.  You can click on the pieces to shop.  No need to sign up with LIKEtoKNOWit anymore!  SO convenient!  

There are some REALLY good pieces in this post, so let's get to it!  

For sizing reference, I'm 5'6" and normally 6/8 or S/M.

For anyone who's still looking for a grey cardigan like this, ANOTHER one is now in stock.  It's not exactly the one I own, but very similar.  I have't felt it first-hand, but if it ends up not being good, you can return it with free shipping back to Nordstrom.  :D  It's available in maroon too!  Mine is oversized, and the new one seems to be also.  I wear this in S and could have gone for XS.  Find them HERE.  

This top is on sale for $22 HERE.  I'm wearing M.

Top: Old Navy (exact)

Jeans: Nordstrom (exact)
Scarf: c/o Conversation Pieces (similar, similar, similar)
Bag: Nordstrom (exact)
Boots: Fergalicious via Famous Footwear (similarsimilar)
Watch: c/o Daniel Wellington (exact, similar--half the price)


Been doing this combo a lot because I love the soft colors!  These are the boots with the dip in the front that were sold out in lots of sizes.  I found them on Amazon in a TON of other colors (I think from last season?) HERE!

Top: Nordstrom (exact in similar color)

THIS DRESS!  I got this a while ago and it's been sold out, but it's back in stock and ON SUPER SALE for $9.97.  NINE DOLLARS AND NINETY-SEVEN CENTS.  WHUT?  It's SOOOO COMFY.  Like, it should be pajamas because it's so soft and stretchy.  I have it in maroon too (which is no longer available), but I paid more than that for them, haha!  It has long sleeves, though it's a bit thin.  I wore a nude colored HEATTECH from Uniqlo (HERE--I wear M) because that layer is very thin but gives me extra warmth.  If it had been even colder the day I wore it I would have worn tights or leggings also.

It's available in the print above, solid black or grey, and a bunch of colored striped versions.  See the maroon on me HERE.  A bunch of people on Instagram said they had and loved this dress, and many people, including myself, own it in multiple colors/prints.  I mayyyyy have ordered it in black too thanks to this sale!  I wear this in M.

THESE JEANS ALSO!  I have yet to do a formal review on them, and they are not on super sale like they were when I posted them on Instagram last week.  They were $19 at the time, so wait for them to go on sale again.  I love that the ankle is pretty skinny on me which works really nicely for a more streamline look when rolling them up with ankle boots.  I also like the mild distressing.

I didn't want to review them until I wore them 5 times without washing so I could speak to how much they stretch.  I finally made it to 5 wears, so here's how it went:

I sized way down to a 4 based on reviews, though I'm normally 6/8.  This is the 3rd time with Old Navy jeans I've done that based on reviews, and I get nervous every time because I'm never size 4, especially in skinny jeans.  All 3 times I've listened to reviews they have been right.  For these jeans, upon initial wear the 4's were a *PERFECT* fit--maybe almost TOO perfect and could have used some loosening up.  Within that first wear, they loosened up a bit to what you see in the pic above.  They stayed that way through the 2nd and 3rd wears, and during the 4th they started to stretch a *little* more.  They haven't gotten to the point of giving me a saggy bum, but the fabric on my legs is just bunching or puckering (or whatever you call it) more and they've lost the *perfect fit* look.  They also softened up by the 4th wear.  (I usually go 4-5 wears between washing jeans as recommended by Real Simple.)

Overall, not too shabby, Old Navy!  Remember to wait for a sale!

I blogged this outfit a while back but finally wore it once the temps dipped.  I wore it with jeans, like shown here, and with leggings like I originally blogged.  I'm really late to the flannel party, but thanks to this one I finally realized how much warmer they are than other plaid button ups!  I'm seriously rethinking all my plaid shirts now, haha.

Here's the same plaid flannel as above for a dressy-casual holiday party look.  I busted out my red-orange coat that I got last year, which is BACK in stock this year!  In the product page it looks very orange, but it's really more of a red-orange as shown in this picture and the customer pics at the bottom of the product page.  I have this in M.

A casual, errand-running outfit that I will never tire of!  Several people have asked about long sleeve black and white striped tops, and I found and linked to several below, and all very inexpensive.

BTW, this vest is sold out but I found a very similar one in lots of colors on Amazon HERE.  A few people in the PMT Style Challenge Facebook group said that while more puffy vests like the Old Navy ones I often talk about don't work for them, these thinner quilted ones do.

I reviewed this sweater recently and then wore it for the next 3 days straight.  :D  It was perfect on a day with pouring rain--a rare occurrence here in San Diego.  (Sadly, we're in a drought and really need the rain!)  

The coat arrived just a couple days before the rain.  Our winters are very mild, but I'd been looking for an everyday coat exactly like this but that could also work for our rare rainy days.  There's no description of it being a raincoat, but water beaded off it nicely in moderate rain.  In the heavy downpours it absorbed the water a little but still kept me dry.  It's probably not great for climates with regular heavy rain, but for where I live it's just what I was looking for.  It's also available in petite and tall sizes in various colors, and only $53!
