Well, the snow finally ended and we got a little bit of sunshine today.  Hurray! Yeah, I'd about had enough of that stuff, seven months of winter is enough.  I do hope it's the last big snow for the year, I think we're all tried of shoveling out the walk and the parking spots. I can't complain though, it's such a small area, I remember being a kid and we had a little over a quarter mile of driveway to shovel out and we'd regularly get a couple feet of wet, heavy snow at a time.  The walkway and the small parking spots with  powder-fluff look pretty easy in comparison.

Weather, weather, weather!  I need to get that off my mind, I sound like a recording every day.  Weather this, weather that, weather whine whine.

This is the first top I've bought from Old Navy since last spring.  I sort of swore off buying their shirts when I kept having the same problem with all of the shirts being made out of really thin cotton which once wrinkled, could never be unwrinkled, even with a iron.  Am I the only one who had that problem, that their tops just would not unwrinkled?  Anyways, I was buying clothes for the kids and I just fell in love with the pattern on this top, it reminded me of a map from a distance.  I tried it on and was surprised that it felt a little bit heavier fabric so I took it home and you guys, IT DOESN'T WRINKLE LIKE CRAZY.     Well done Old Navy, well done.

Edit: Holy crimmney, I did not proofread that post.  Sorry everyone, that was awful to read through.


  1. I, too, think the pattern on that top is particularly pretty! Is it more of a chiffon fabric? I like the Old Navy tops that are less cotton and more polyester.

  2. Oooh, I can see the map print on that blouse :)
    Plus, no wrinkles? Old Navy is getting better!
    So glad the snow's going away for you - I'm looking forward to seeing your summer posts already haha!

  3. GIRL, you look so chic given the weather limiations. I totally feel your pain with the 7 month winter... ours is 8. But I love the play of layering-- both functional and chic!

    You've got a great blog, would you like to follow each other?


  4. That does look like a map, soooo cool! And glad to hear that it's not wrinkling. I don't have any old navy shirts but I know that a lot of forever21 skirts wrinkle too and it is so annoying. But i'm glad that shirt doesn't :D And your shirt reminds me of this map print jeans from madewell:

    And your military jacket is so perfect with the fluttering-in-the-wind skirt :) Absolutely gorgeous (and the background is gorgeous too!)

  5. nice! I really love your jacket and your belt!

  6. Ooooh that blouse is SO pretty! And I love the lighting in these photos Katie. Re-reading posts with errors happens to us all :)

  7. The paisley print is really pretty! Old Navy has some great stuff lately. I'm glad you're getting some sun and I hope the snow is over for you!

  8. Amazing blog !

  9. So I kind of love your outfits! They're super cute! I love how awesome you look even though it's cold! I always feel super uninspired when I have to walk outside in the cold for a long time--I just go right for my comfy jeans!

  10. that indeed is one very nice blouse. I like the pattern and the colours. it doesn't remind me of a map though :P but yeah, it's still beautiful. and how pretty are your necklaces! both of them look gorgeous and I would love to have them in silver. not that I actually need any new necklaces but oh well. I also love the handbag, it's so super classy. btw, you should make a post about your bags' collection, how many do you have, how many have been thrifted etc. would be SOOO interesting to read and see.

  11. I have the same issue with the thinness of Old Navy tops but I don't find they wrinkle more than others. Have you tried the perfect fit ones?

  12. that fabric does look like a map from a distance. i adore that jacket too. i don't think i own a lot of tops from old navy. the wrinkling even when ironed fabric does annoy me too. boo to that! :P


Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I always like hearing feeback! (It really makes my day!)
