Score, score, score!

About 3 weeks ago, AJ and I went shopping at a few places, one being Old Navy. I developed quite the crush on a jacket. I still wasn't out of the first tri though, so I wouldn't really allow myself to make any maternity related purchases.

Go back two weeks, when my Mom and I went out to dinner and shopping with one of her friends. Again, one of the places we hit was Old Navy. I showed my Mom the jacket and she tried to force me to buy it. :) Okay fine, she told me I had to get it and that she wanted to buy it for me. What can I say, she's really excited I'm pregnant! I held off and said that I wanted to wait for a sale. It is a regular non maternity jacket so I will be able to wear it after the pregnancy . . . but I just can't justify paying full price, especially at sales heaven ON!

So last night, I'm sitting on the couch watching my Kare11 and what do I see? Old Navy is having a 50% all outerwear weekend sale! I immediately called my Mom and she chuckled, as she'd hoped I hadn't seen it so that she could go and buy the jacket for me as a surprise. We talked about meeting up with each other on Saturday to go buy the jacket and that was that, or so I thought.

I pulled up Old Navy.com this morning, because 1) I took the day off and 2) I couldn't decide what color I was going to get. Upon loading the site message said that the sale had already started!!! So I called the nearest store and the manager confirmed, that yes, even though the ad said 11/8 it had actually already started . . . so I threw on a pair of jeans, pulled a jacket on over my t-shirt and hoodie, in my haste neglecting a bra {remember that pregnancy brain}, and called my Mom while jumping in the vehicle to high tail it to ON.

And now . . . she's mine! For $45 {of my generous Mom's moolah}, I have a MN warm {we already have had snowfall}, baby belly accomodating pea coat!
And yes, I finally decided on the green. Here's the deal though, when my Mom and I went 2 weeks ago, the small fit me and I thought the breastes area was very accomodating. So, I did what a guy would do, I bought it this morning without trying it on and wouldn't you know, putting it on at home now, it's already a bit snug in the rib cage!

Thank you for all of your comments lately. It's nice to know that I am not the only one sometimes ;)

You are spectacular and your style is impecable!

There's an Old Navy within walking distance from my work and I go there at least once a week! I saw that coat too and thought it was adorable!

I, er...was contemplating purchasing some cheap a$$ maternaity summer clothes this week so I understand your hesitancy. [and No, I don't have news....yet ;)]

I knew what you were talking about before I even saw the picture. I just left Old Navy minutes ago and almost bought this same jacket. It is loverly!

Chelsie said...

I wish I had a justifiable reason to buy a new winter coat especially with such a great sale going on.

I love, love, love it!!!! I want it!!! Haha! Great choice!

Freckles Chick said...

Excellent choice and taste! You've inspired me to venture outside of my "black/grey" coat norm.

Can I just say I'm still giggling at your "Grand biscuits" comment on my post today? *giggle, snort*

Dunc said...

So cute! And LOL at the boobage.

HBee said...

Super cute. That's my favorite color of green. Hmmm...perhaps I need one of those...

ka1t_lyn said...

That is so adorable! I'd love a green peacoat but I couldn't justify it unless it was approx. $20-- I have a grey one already! Maybe you can exchange it for a medium? Yay on the deal! :)

kari said...

I love, love, love it! I might be heading to ON tomorrow.

Karen said...

Megs said...

Ooh, I love the green! My favorite color! Must. Resist. Urge. To. Drive. There. Right. Now.

Kim & Ryan said...

Cute Cute! I have an eerily similar green coat, even the same style.

So, of course I love it.

Meredith said...

You KNOW I already hit up ON's coat sale.

I absolutely hate how inconsistent Old Navy's sizing is though...more than once I've bought the same shirt in two different colors, same size, one fit and one didn't. It's really kind of a problem.

Madeline said...

LOVE it cute mama 2 b!!!
Remember all that cold weather we had...last 2 days hav been in the 80's. Back to flip flops and tank tops :)

Rebecca Taylor said...

Yay!! How exciting, and it's so sweet of your mom to get it for you! :)

AJ said...

those damn breastes.

Sea-Squared said...

Ohhh, I love it! I think I will be swinging into ON today! I've been wanting a green pea coat since last winter. Great find Leah! And an even better price!

Rachel said...
