OOTD 3.7.10 {featuring Old Navy's $20 shawl collar cardi}

On Saturday I bought this cardi at Old Navy (promo'd to $20 from $26.50), so of course I wore it out for an early dinner on Sunday. (Mine is definitely ivory - marshmallow white is the closest color I see online but I don't know that that's it.)

I wanted a longer length ivory cardigan to replace a J Crew version that I have worn for the last year or two. On the way to the laundry room for some intense stain treatment for something on the arm, I noticed a hole in the back. So that was that. It was starting to look pretty worn after a couple of years' wear anyway - which really doesn't seem right for J Crew's pricing. The knit of this Old Navy cardigan is similar to the J Crew one I had. It is a thin knit - nice for Spring - and very soft and nicely woven and constructed. A good deal at $20 for sure. All the Smalls were gone, so I bought a Medium. You can see in the pics that it definitely has that boyfriend/grandpa cardi slouchy fit. If I get another color, I'll get it in my usual size. I've read reviews that say to even size down.

Old Navy also had scarves on sale for $8... and some pretty cute ones at that! I got this one:

Happy Tuesday!



  1. love the ruffle tank! I got a cute ON scarf and cardi too! They have had great sales lately!

  2. I need to stop into a Old Navy, I haven't been to one in awhile but you always get the cutest stuff from there.

  3. What a great deal on that cardigan! I am thinking of getting one in black or navy. How is it in terms of texture? Is it a very thin material?

    Love your TB wedges and the ON scarf is so cute!

  4. You have the best luck at Old Navy! Love the cardi!

  5. will have to go look for the cardi now- looks great on you!
