BlogHer Fashion And To Pop or Not?

in Primp

Congrats to the following winners: @Southtexasstyle, AdventuresInBabywearing, Lauren (faupula), Mindi (mae), armyguardmom, Mo L., Macey (momsessential), Jennifer (madeli) and Joette L!

I’m doing some last minute shopping for BlogHer and I’m hitting up Old Navy for some cute pieces. It’s definitely going to be hot outside and possibly chilly at the hotels, so I need some basics to layer. I don’t like sweating and when I do, I get self conscious. I chill easily and can’t stand cold arms. Sometimes I shake, sometimes I twitch, sometimes I get grumpy. I don’t want to scare anyone, so I need to layer. I’m looking at dresses, skirts, cardigans, and capris. I love this look below.

And although I probably won’t be wearing polos to BlogHer, I may grab a few, they’re on sale in stores for $8 through July 29th!

You can check out these polos under the “Weekly Ad” tab on Old Navy’s Facebook page. While you’re there, check out Barker’s Bones where you can dig around for unlimited coupons. This week’s highest-value unlimited coupon is $10 off $50, but I bet I have something a little more enticing…


I’ve been hooked up with 10 $50 off $100 Old Navy coupons, I’m choosing to keep one for myself and to give away 9. For a chance to win 1 of 9 $50 off $100 Old Navy coupons answer the following question in the comments: The collars on the women’s fashion polos reveal colorful designs when popped. Are you awesome enough to pop your collar, or are you keepin’ it down low (for lack of better words)? Nine winners from the U.S. and Canada will be chosen July 24th, 2010 at 7PM CST. The coupons are good through July 29th, so winners must reply ASAP! You may want to take a look at my basic giveaway rules. Good luck!

    I think I will leave it in the down low. These shirts are bold enough without a statement of poping the collar. Love the good deal though and the pink one looks to match my favorite nail pollish:)

    When I was younger I did not pop the collar. And I do not think I could pull off the "popped" collar now. So I guess if I were to wear one now it would have to be kept own low.

    But I might just pop up the collar if I feel daring.

    I lay my collars down, because if I don't, one of the children will, and if they do, it might lay funny.

    I would do the half popped collar. (Must be because I am only half awesome!) My half pop is just a full pop in the back, then transition to no pop in the front. The colors collide better that way! Love the color "treat"ment on these polos! (does this answer qualify? if not, just count me as yes! I would pop the collar on this polo!!)
    Thanks, Sheena, for the great advice on layering and thanks to you and Old Navy for the great giveaway!
