A little Sunday shopping recap

The last time I mentioned Old Navy was back in February, quite some time ago, huh? Well, I hopped into the store yesterday after the bookstore in an effort to find my growing niece a few pieces. My sister always jokes that whenever I shop for "A" that she ends up looking like a little mini me. Well, I know what I like and I don't like kids in cartoon themed outfits (ahhh, sorry, please don't send me hate mail). I think my mom ruined me on one too many princess outfits.
I think I jumped up and down when I saw this coat, and no, I am not above jumping up and down in a store.
Plaid Flannel Coat for Baby, urban dwelling gray $20 (from $29.50)

Polka dots and ruffles. I die.
Ruffled Oxford Shirts for Baby, Lavender Sprig $9 from $14.50

I decided to treat myself to a little something as well (I've been working hard!)
I'm wearing this dress as I type and I think it's one of the most comfortable pieces EVER. I might have to buy one in every color and start sleeping in them.
Women's V Neck Jersey Dresses $15


I'm currently wearing this scarf with the dress and I'm perfectly work appropriate, my boss already complimented it (whew, you have to question jersey in the office).
Women's Lightweight Plaid Scarf $8 (from $12.50)

via Old Navy
Have I mentioned how much I love my Sundays off? B mentioned yesterday that he thinks I'm a "whole new person" when I have a day off and that I'm "much more relaxed" throughout the week. Note to self- never work seven days a week again.

Even when I was working 6 double shifts a week at a restaurant, I made sure to have that precious Sunday off. It really does make ALL the difference in the world.

Courtney said...

Great Old Navy finds [especially the jersey dress]. I love the look of the blog and your etsy shop!

I hope all is well with you!

Diana said...

I need these in my sizes,, grr.
but buying kids sizes is cheaper!

Sam said...

That little coat and shirt!! Cute as! The dress you have looks so wonderful and incredibly versatile (dress it up or down) and comfy. I'm a big fan of comfy!

drollgirl said...

i love old navy, too. sometimes it just works, and it is totally affordable!

p.s. working 7 days a week is a total nightmare and a relationship killer. don't do it again if you can help it! :)

the southern hostess said...

Love the dress and the scarf! What a cute outfit.

Felicia|DaLipstickBandit said...

I love O/N during this time when it's not quite Fall and not quite Summer...can you say DISCOUNTS!

Hanako66 said...

the outfit that you bought yourself is DARLING! and can they please make the kid stuff in grown up sizes??!!

pixelhazard said...

Fanciest baby ever, in a ruffled and collared shirt. Most babies i know prefer just to wear food.

Oh that jersey dress looks so comfy. Somthing i would definately live in

Paulina said...

oh, poor Little One will hate me bc I sometimes cave and let him wear aweful hand-me-downs (with cartoons on them!!!) yes, I am ashamed.....gah poor guy!! haha

but I do tend to shop at H&M and Old Navy for kids clothes (they have great stuff on a dime!)

anotherfishinthesea said...

I think i need that dress! What a great deal!

Jenny.Lee said...

I want that dress! So cute!

Blair said...

Wonderful purchases! I especially love the jersey dress.

TheBeautyFile said...

that lavender polka dotted top is reason enough for me to want to have a baby...

natty. said...

That stuff is THE cuteness. I'll have to go and see if they have my daughter's size. I have to go to Old Navy on purpose, not just to browse, because I invariably end up walking out with three or four things for her.

LENORENEVERMORE said...

The Plaid Flannel Coat is super cute!
Almost like it belongs to a cute todler...adorable!! I can picture it with dark skinny jeans & sexy tan boots...
~xo*

Lauren said...

Oh my gosh, too bad those first two are for babies.. I want them for me!

The Cottage Cheese said...

I'm so happy for you that you're taking Sundays off now. Everyone needs at least one day off, and you just work too hard girl! Love the dress and scarf, and that little girls' jacket is adorable! I'm with you on the cartoon T's. Bo-ring.

Kellie said...

That little coat may be the cutest thing I've seen in a long time! Adorable. Oh and Old Navy should pay you ad money b/c I am so going there after work now! Hehe! :)

Erin said...

Just got home from Old Navy. Bought 2 of those dresses....had to stop myself from buying a 3rd! They are soooo comfy, and flattering too. So glad you blogged about them! O/N certainly does need to be paying you!

Quixsa said...
