Fall Basics

If you follow along with my blog, you know I love discovering new designers and shopping boutique brands that are not seen everywhere.  However, my exception is always Old Navy.  Obviously a large retail chain for the masses….for some reason….I always have great luck with seasonal basics.  Connor needed a few new pairs of shoes (since he goes through shoes every few weeks) I like to buy inexpensive pairs….We both left with bags full of goodies. I purchased a few great button ups like this chambray shirt as well as the adorable crochet sweater I have featured below.  My only gripe is the shoulders are a tad big..BUT it was too cute to pass up…and I know I will wear it a ton this fall.  I am still on a mission for the perfect white Tshirt- so please share if you have found a fabulous one. So I ask, where do you shop for your hang around basics?

  1. I almost bought that sweater. I still have the picture on my phone from when I tried it on. 🙂

    It looks great on you and I love how you styled it with shorts and boots. Looking fab as always!

    I can’t wait for Fall! Keep those cute outfits coming

  3. Jill says:

    Love a chunky sweater for Fall and those boots are amazing!

    I like Old Navy but quality is a big thing for me.I prefer Gap for those sorts of things (it’s also a few blocks away).

  4. Carly says:

    TOTALLY agree Jill that quality is important..I have had the BEST luck with the pieces I have bought from Old Navy…not going to say they last from season to season..but they usually wear well for ONE season..and for the price..that is my only expectation. Ironically I have had quality issues w GAP more than ON.

  5. Oh, you are so cute! I love this whole look – the sweater, the boots, all of it! xx

    I get my basis from everywhere. I don’t think I have been inside of an Old Navy in SO long. I like to get my basics from Nordstrom and Ralph Lauren, but I can find some really great stuff at other random places.

  8. I love Old Navy too. I like that a lot of their sweaters are cotton – I can’t handle synthetics. The sweater you’re wearing is adorable! Do you think it would be bad to get one when I already have something similar? 🙂


  9. fshnonmymind says:

    This sweater is a perfect fall addition and I love the styling you did with shorts and boots.

    I honestly don’t think I buy anything basic from one particular place, however, I have several cardigans from Madewell. I love their colors.

  10. L says:

    I’ve been eyeing that same sweater online. It’s such a great transitional piece that you could wear so many ways. Great pick!

  11. weasel says:

    Love these boots and sweater, you look great!

  12. Hi Carly! You snagged a great bargain haul! I love that sweater and Old Navy is one of my favorite places to go and buy basics as well as outfits to ‘hang around!’ So glad you enjoyed today’s bargain haul and I agree, if you do leave with a few things from your fashion show styling event….it is totally ok! Enjoy your weekend!

  13. I love this outfit, but especially love it with the fedora. totally suits you. 🙂

  14. Fashion-isha says:

    Carly you look awesome! I love cheap and chic! And your jewelry is fabulous too! Thanks for your comments on my blog…I know exactly what you mean about not having the peace to read magazines. But they grow up fast…so enjoy your cutie!

  15. Krystal says:

    i’d wear that all fall i think! H&M is a good basics one stop shop for me!

  16. I don’t do so well at Old Navy anymore. I’m a HUGE fan of Banana Republic, though. They can do no wrong, in my opinion! 🙂 (Love that sweater, by the way!)

  17. Maegan says:

    I love your look! The shorts are adorable, I’ve been looking for a pair and have not found the right ones yet.

    Happy weekend 🙂

  18. Great outfit–crochet is indeed perfect for early fall. Those boots are fab too. Thanks so much for sharing on Monday Mingle.

  19. Lissy says:

    The sweater is per-fect and I love the super fun necklace!

  20. Zarna says:

    that sweater is fantastic! i might need to hop on over to old navy!

  21. Super cute!

    I agree about Old Navy. It’s great for basic pieces that will get you through a season at an affordable price. I live in their tanks under shirts during the summer (especially now when I’m working with a post-baby body and need some extra length!).

  22. Perfect Fall look. I love the JC boots – they rise to just below the knee which is a style I love, often boots go lower and I don’t think this looks as good. You couldn’t pass up on the sweater I see multiple opportunities for wear! For my hang around basics I return to Gap every time. I love their tees actually, maybe you could find something there?

    I was going to purchase that sweater over the weekend. It was such a good deal at 60% off… anyhoo, you look fabulous! 🙂

  25. Clueless Mom says:

    I love Old Navy, especially for the boys. I always find great deals there for them and great basics for me.

  26. Jessica says:

    I adore those shorts and of course the boots as well! Normally, I bypass Old Navy but after reading time and time again about everyone else’s good luck I gave it a shot. I ended up totally lucking out with a great olive green surplus vest.


  27. Kristin says:
