Old Navy Try On Session!

I recently noticed that Old Navy had some super cute new arrivals for January. Shopping in January can be so tricky! On the one hand it's still very much "winter" but I find myself (maybe you too?) craving something wintery but still different than fall and "Christmas" pieces. I always love neutrals, but this time of year I think they are particularly fitting. Neutrals are the freshness we crave after the holidays while also being very easy to transition to spring - even though it's a few months off still.

Let's take a look at some of the pieces I found recently! I found a lot of cute pieces although I struck out a bit on sizing on some - but my missteps will hopefully be helpful for you because I have all of the sizing info below!

This sweatshirt is SO cute and the pattern definitely feels more expensive than it is. At first glance it reminded me of Madewell. It has a dolman sleeve cut to it making it more voluminous on top, with a slight crop. I went up a size to a medium to make it a little extra slouchy, but I don't think it's necessary. You can definitely go with your usual size here. It's easily paired with skinny jeans and sneakers or I love adding a camo jacket for some fun pattern mixing. 
Shop the pieces: polka dot sweatshirt, skinny jeans, similar camo jacket, sneakers (runs big, go down one full size)

I originally thought this mock neck brushed knit top was more of a sweater. I would call it more of a top or thick t-shirt material. I love the cut and the color but keep in mind it's a tad oversized (as you can tell here). I am in my usual size small and it feels a little too big. I paired it with this tweed button front coat which I have mixed feelings on. This coat is very cute and fits great (I went down a size to an XS) but it's not really so much a coat as more of a lightweight jacket. So it won't be warm enough for me here in Michigan. But if you live somewhere warmer than me, definitely check it out!
I originally thought I ordered this in a light grey... but on closer inspection the fabric has a very faint leopard print pattern to it - and I ended up loving it! But again, the sizing on this one is tricky... I am in a size small here and it felt very tight on the shoulders, armpits and sleeve area. And since this is a more casual piece and one you might layer underneath, I highly suggest going up a size. I think the medium would've been perfect. I paired it with leggings and a utility jacket which is super cute for a weekend look. 
Shop the pieces: funnel neck microfleece, leggings, jacket, sneakers (size down one full size)

This is my favorite cut of denim from Old Navy. It's super flattering and comfortable and modern. The distressing on this pair of black jeans is perfect! I found them to be true to size (I am usually a 26 or 27 and I am wearing a size 4 here) but a little long. On the left leg I cuffed them to a perfect length and on the right leg you can see they are a little long. I will likely end up doing a raw hem on them myself to get the perfect length because I really like them!
