Weekly Roundup

Happy Friday, you guys! This week has been a long one. On Tuesday, I swore it was Thursday. And on Thursday, Lincoln woke up sick. As a mom of young kiddos, you always know sickness is coming in the fall, but it never gets easier to deal with missing work, juggling child care, and still trying to make sure they are getting what they need to heal. Being a mom is hard-so moms of little kids, I am throwing an extra cheers out to you all this weekend as a reminder that we are not alone on those tough days! Onto prettier things, below is a weekly roundup of what I shared here on the blog and over on my Instagram. The leaves have just about peeked, and I am trying to capture all the pretty fall photos that we can!

Henley Sweater

There was so much love for this henley sweater this week! I will be straightforward in saying it itches a bit-I know that is an automatic NO GO for some people, so I like to mention it right away 😉 It isn’t overwhelming, but there is a touch of wool. Otherwise, it is so cute! The buttons are oversized and functional, and the red color is so perfect for fall.

This pretty white sweater was so loved by you all this week. For reference, I am wearing a size large tall, and it fits very well. Get your true size in this one! I have been wearing my Spanx faux leather leggings with so many outfits lately, I love how they are so comfy but still can be dressed up. Keep your eyes peeled-I may have a Spanx post coming soon!

Another share over on Instagram late last week was this pretty poncho sweater! I snagged it on sale for just $17, and it is so nice for the price. Incredibly soft and the prettiest colors, it just screams fall. There are no arm holes, and it is cut to naturally fall over your arms but is truly more of a scarf. I layered it over a white sweater with duck boots. It did snow last weekend, after all (and already melted, thank goodness!)

If I could suggest one trend item that you should buy this fall, it is a good moto jacket. They can be worn so many ways, are warm, and I love the little bit of edge they add to an outfit. The one I am wearing below is a tall fit, and I linked a few others that also come in tall! If you don’t need the extra length, I have a ton of options below at various price points. I have tried most of them on in stores, and the one from Old Navy, ASOS, and Target are my favorites!

This sweater was a part of my Amazon finds post, and is a great fall sweater. It runs true to size, but if you want it extra slouchy, go up one. I have been loving neutral colors with a pop of black, and this one is a statement piece for sure. Also, I feel like I need to shout it from the rooftops that my black studded booties are still in stock in SO MANY SIZES, and are around $25 when you use the on site promo code!

Recent Amazon Finds

Did you catch my recent Amazon finds post earlier this week? These posts are always so popular-people love love them some Amazon! The most loved item by far was this henley top. It runs true to size, I got a large and it was roomy and long. The sleeves work well if you are tall, too! You can grab it in multiple colors, but there is something I just love about a good white shirt!

Last Week’s Roundup

Last week we lost Mike’s grandpa, and even though I had a post drafted, I just couldn’t find the time to commit to getting it live. But I had already put in the work so I decided to post it on Monday. You can see all of my favorites from last week, including my spooky console table!

I hope you all have the best weekend. Can you believe we are already halfway through October!? Only two more weekends until Halloween!

Fall Finds At Old Navy

Happy fall, y’all! I promise, that line is the only time you will hear the word ‘y’all’ come out of my midwestern mouth. But seriously, the fall weather has been unreal this year. We are pretty much consistently seeing temps in the 60s, and lots of rain this week (womp womp). While I am a little sad to see the summer temps leave so quickly, I will not lie about how excited I am to already be wearing all of the fall things! I shared a try on in my stories on Instagram earlier this week, but decided to share all of the looks here, too! Keep reading for my fall finds at Old Navy!

Sherpa Vest

First things first; yes, the leaves on those trees behind me are already changing colors! It is such an early fall this year! I think my favorite look from this try on is the one below-this sherpa vest is SO good! When I originally ordered it, they only had regular sizing, but have since extended it to also included petite and tall options! I think I am going to exchange it for a large tall-the regular fit and worked, but I am never one to say no to a little extra length.

My jeans are not from Old Navy, but they are new and I have gotten so many questions on them! They run a full size large-so order a full size down from what you normally would get in this brand. I am wearing a size 8 extra long. The fit is so flattering, and I saw multiple sizes have already started selling out. These won’t be in stock long!

My booties will be linked throughout the post, but I have been wearing them pretty much daily since I got them! They run true to size, and I got them with one of the coupons that DSW runs on a regular basis for less than $40! I love that they have a tiny heel, but nothing major. Tall girls, these are the perfect snakeskin bootie!

The sweater layered beneath my vest can be seen below! It sold out in all of the tall sizes thanks to a $10 flash sale on Sunday, but it is fully stocked in regular and some petite sizes. This one is GOOD-such a popular boutique style that I was so happy to see Old Navy create. I will be sure to share when tall sizes restock (I own two colors, and already want more!) I have also found that once Old Navy does a flash sale, it is safe to assume they will do it again, but they only do it for limited quantities. If you are waiting for a sale, it is a good idea to move quickly-I think all of the tall sizes were sold out by noon last weekend!

The jeans pictured are actually from last season and are left in SUPER limited sizes, but I found a nearly identical pair from the same retailer here! Busted knee denim might just be my favorite, and American Eagle makes some of the best options I have been able to find, especially if you are tall like me!

Gray Sweatshirt

This sweatshirt is another item that was only available in regular, and after a few weeks was brought in both tall and petite sizes! I snagged one so quickly! It is a marled gray, and the inside almost feels like a lightweight terry material. That makes it a GREAT sweatshirt for transitioning. It is still plenty cozy, but won’t have you melting if it warms up throughout the day. Order your true size in this one, or up one if you want a roomy fit.

Tencel Shirt

Alright, this may be the hidden gem of my fall finds at Old Navy! I have been eyeing this shirt online for awhile, and thanks to some credit card rewards and a mega sale, I got it for $6.50! And it fits SO well. I sized up to a large tall. A medium would have worked, but sometimes I feel like button up shirts are better bigger. They are more versatile and provide more options when you have a little bit more fabric to play with! The fit is roomy but tapered, and I love that it is long enough that it can be worn with leggings. While it does wrinkle, it is MUCH easier to steam and get smooth compared to other chambray style tops I have worn. This is another item worth snagging in multiple colors!

Quilted Vest

See what I mean for how versatile this top is!? It is cute on its own or layered. This quilted vest comes in tons of colors, and is available in regular, tall, and petite. For being a vest, it is actually quite thin, which makes it another great transitional piece. You can size down, but if you plan to layer with sweaters or thicker clothing, I would go with your normal size. I am wearing a medium tall, and it works with this shirt, but would be tight over a sweater!

What are your latest fall finds at Old Navy? I shop a number of different retailers, but I think that Old Navy definitely dominates my closet. I just love how they cater to ALL sizes. Tall, petite, plus sized, or pregnant, they have it all 🙂 If there are any items you have had your eye on or would like to see styled on a tall body type, let me know! I am always happy to test things out for you guys 🙂

As always, thank you for reading! And in case you missed it earlier this week, in honor of my 30th birthday I shared 30 random facts about myself! Some of them might be obvious, and some might surprise you. Head here to check it out!
