Navy & White plus Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

I hadn’t realized that I owned so many navy and white pieces, but looking at my outfits from the past week, I definitely notice a trend!

Sweater: Old Navy (similar), Necklace: H&M (similar), Jeans: GAP, Shoes: Old Navy (similar)

Lots of Old Navy going on in this outfit (sweater & booties) – I bought this wrap sweater over 2 years ago and it’s held up well so far.

Top: J.Crew, Necklace: J.Crew (similar), Jeans: Garage, Boots: Hunter, Bag: LV Neverfull PM

Loving my J.Crew Factory striped t-shirt. As much as I love Old Navy, I find that J.Crew Factory usually has better quality – and if you wait for the right 40% off sale – you can end up paying Old Navy prices for their pieces. I’ll always be a fan of Old Navy though – especially for their thicker sweaters & shoes.

Top: Garage (similar), Necklace: J.Crew, Jeans: Garage (this year’s version), Boots: Old Navy (similar), Bag: LV Neverfull PM

I chose this outfit after I got tired of wearing dark denim all the time in this cold weather. It was fun wearing winter whites – who knew that white jeans would work with tan boots?

    I totally took a screen shot of your white skinnies and checked shirt as inspiration for me to recreate. LOVE it!

    Love these! I would wear all three looks to work, or anytime really! I love that ON sweater in the first look. Perfect for a casual yet polished outfit.

      Thanks Noelle – navy & white feels really crisp…a great contrast to the dreary and cold weather we're having ;-P

    Effortless chic – all of them! I think the stripes and hunters is my fave look, but they're really all inspiring and fun!

    Love these outfits so much! I am actually making a conscious effort to wear more blue this year, so this is great inspiration. I think I always avoided blue tops because I wore blue jeans so much, so it wasn't that easy to style them. But now there are so many other choices of denim colors. I think the gingham with white jeans and cognac boots outfit is my favorite from this set, but seriously, they're all great. :)-GinaOn the Daily Express

      Thanks! I know what you mean about wanting to avoid blue tops blending in with blue jeans – luckily colored denim (white, red, olive, mint etc) look fab with blue 🙂

    Again amazing outfits! I'll never get tired of of seeing, and wearing, stripes and gingham. White and navy is so nautical and pretty. Love them all Ella!

      Thanks Lily – I'm the same way – am especially addicted to gingham, there's something so cheerful about it!
