Once you become a mommy, it is easy to get frumpy. In the months after delivering Alex, I lost enough weight that I no longer fit into my pre-pregnancy clothing. Top that problem with the occasional inability to get a shower (teething, I am not looking at you), frequently foregoing makeup, and often not needing to actually change from your jammies to real clothes, your style drastically drops. Oh, the joys of being a stay at home mother. Also, do I have time to shop? Rarely. Many of my friends would echo these sentiments.
A few weeks ago, an awesome program I participate in chose me to be a member of the Old Navy Style Council. This program is called Crowdtap. Basically, it is a rewards program that helps companies connect with consumers, and you are rewarded for giving your opinions on branding concepts.
I was ecstatic that I was chosen. I love Old Navy, and a majority of my wardrobe is from there. Few places carry jeans in a petite length, and Old Navy is one of those rare brands. As a member of the Old Navy Style Council, I invited three friends to participate in a Cardi Party. Unfortunately, one of my friends was unable to come, but Dana, Courtney and I had a great time. As mothers, they also understand what it is like to have little time for yourself. After a half an hour of shopping, the three of us hit the dressing rooms to model our fashion finds.
Dana looked classically sharp in this red/white cardi and pencil skirt with wedges.
Courtney matched a cardi with a peach blouse, wedges, and a scarf.
I decided to be bold with a jade green cardi, blue pencil skirt, turquoise scarf. I love color!
The three of us. Dana and I are eight and nine months postpartum. I’d say we’re looking pretty good!
Dana rocked contrasting prints in blues and some sweet boot cut jeans in the Flirt rise.
Courtney liked things monochromatic, but rocked black pencil skirt and fun scarf! She added a pop of color with some red pumps.
My inner prep was drawn to this plaid shirt, red cardi, boot cut jeans, red ballet flats. This outfit came home with me.
Old Navy, thanks for the opportunity to sample Fall fashion, for a complimentary clothing, and a chance to get away. Three stylish mamas thank you for helping us update part of our wardrobes.
Do any of you love Old Navy? What is your favorite fall trend?
