OOTD: How to Wear Houndstooth + Gap Houndstooth Sweater + Old Navy Rockstar Pop-Color Jeans

This past weekend, we had the greatest weather. This is my favorite time of year in Miami!

This Gap Houndstooth sweater is great! It was an impulse buy from Gap.com and I couldn't be happier with it (kids version still available) It's very, very soft and good quality.  And obviously, who can resist an adorable houndstooth print anything, really...I will say that the sleeves are a tad short on me - I purchased it in an XS regular and could have done just as well with a size S.  Gap has frequent online sales, and I got this one with a 30% off coupon! (currently use code GAPVOTEfor 20% off your purchase).

Hurry, because in true Gap fashion,  sizes in this sweater are, of course, limited (what is it with online shopping lately - why does everything sell out so fast? It's really annoying).

I love the contrast of the sweater with the electric blue jeans from Old Navy.  These are last year's Rockstar Jeggings that ran notoriously small (one full size, to be exact).  This year, Old Navy brought back this same style, and renamed them the RockStar Pop-Color Jeans, but according to the reviews on OldNavy.com, they still run a full size small.

Earrings: Stella & Dot 
Lipstick: Revlon Super Lustrous Creme Lipstick in Cherries in the Snow 
Necklace: Stella & Dot Renegade necklace, and J.Crew necklace (old).

  3. OK so I love this outfit and think it's my favorite of yours to date!
    I want to borrow it all!

    ps; my Old Navy rockstar jeans ran a full TWO sizes too small. And they still fit so weird. Ugh, Old Navy pants.

  4. GREAT colors! I love the sweater. Good job on that impulse buy. And the shoes are divine! I have similar heels from Nine West that I bought last year. Can't wait to wear them again.

    Question: what program do you use for your lettering? I've been using Picmonkey, but they have a very limited selection of fonts. Just curious!


    1. About my LOFT pants: they should still be available, both in store and online. I just bought them this weekend (during a store-wide 40% sale that ended on Saturday!). They fit a little tight around the thighs at first, but as you wear them they stretch out quite a bit. It's the kind of pant you have to wash for them to shrink back down. Or maybe I'm the only one with that problem, haha.

  5. I am loving this outfit- the purse, the sweater, the shoes...gosh, even the hair. I need more mustard/yellow in my life but alas my fair skin and hair just doesn't allow it :(

    Thanks for joining up with the Almost Friday Thursday Blog Hop. We would love to have you back again this week :)
