$25 maternity frost freejacket at old navy!

post #1 of 13

Here is it freaking cold!  And I needed a new jacket!  I just got the old navy frost free jacket for 25 bucks--if you enter the promo code ONHOLIDAY you get 15% off, so the shipping is basically free! 

 

I'm probably an XS, but got the S--they still have all sizes except for the XS. 

 

I am stoked to be WARM and not freezing anymore!

Oh, that is great news!  Thank you so much!

 

I do admit that my clothes crunch was relieved a bit today when I realized that I had a lot in the laundry I had forgotten about.  Most of my "wear in public" clothes need to be washed carefully, so they wind up waiting and waiting under the huge pile of never-ending children and man clothes.  Today I pulled out all the delicates and FILLED my super capacity washer.  Duh.  And, well, what a relief!  It was starting to get pretty desperate.

 

Also, I have this issue that all long sleeve shirts are too short.  Or, if I get them big enough to have long enough arms, one washing and that's it...and they are still shaped more like rectangles anyway.  So, I hacked off the sleeves of one of mine from last year, and serged the edges.  It looks pretty cute.  I got one shirt in an XL from ON a month or so ago, and it was HUGE around me, and SUPER long, and the sleeves were great.  They came down 2" past my wrist.  Wonderful.  Well, since it was SO huge, and the neckline was so big, I washed and dried it.  The sleeves are now an inch ABOVE my wrist. Blah.  So, I'm rolling those up to be 3/4 length now.  Anway...just my little vent and my 3/4 length sleeve serging trick. :)

It is hard to find stuff that fits! 

 

I figure I can resell the jacket on ebay when I am done with it... and I don't want to get a new "normal" jacket now when I don't know what size it should be!  So this will have to work.

 

I don't like my other jacket since it shows my belly too much and I haven't really told many people about baby... I'm thinking in the new year I'll make an announcement to the world.  New year, new baby!

very cool! 

 

 

I got my jacket today and it will totally work for the rest of the winter and our "June-uary" where it is still all cold and gloomy in June.  Yeah for being warm!

Cold and gloomy in June?  Yikes.  I couldn't do that.  I *hate* being cold.  When DD was born, we were living in the midwest and it was still a bit chilly/rainy in late April when she was born.  I'm excited to be living in the south now.  It'll be nice and warm by March...almost hot by May!  :D

Yeah, it takes something to hang in there... summers are absolutely beautiful here in Oregon, though, so it is worth it.  There are tons of free concerts, plays in the park, movies in the park, beer fests, etc. And it is just beautiful--everything is green! And the flowering trees are lovely... But the winter is something else... and spring is wet. wet. wet.

 

The plaid jacket is totally cute!
