K/R: Gap denim moto, camo dress & skinnies

I went to return stuff at Nordstrom, and ended up spending almost as much at Gap, LOL! Everything was on sale in store for 30% off (I included prices I paid, in case that sways the decision). I am trying to round out my casual wardrobe. Please let me know what you think of these pieces--thanks in advance!
1-5. Gap camo Always Skinny jeans, $49. These are size 28 (size 6), which is up one size from my blue denim Always Skinny from pre-pregnancy. It's fairly snug, but I think it will loosen up as I wear it. It has three zippers on the front instead of pockets. They are cropped ankle length on me, but I'd mostly wear this with my high top wedge sneakers or booties anyways. If you don't like this one, Banana Republic makes another camo jean that I could try, but it's almost twice as much on the website ($90).
1-5. Ribbed circle-hem T in grey, $24. Hmm, guess this is looking a bit sloppy on me? The overhead lights are casting all kinds of shadows which makes it look worse. I wanted a grey sweatshirt-like top, but maybe this is too thin and loungey.
6-10. Textural raw-edge T, $19. This is a little thicker so it feels like it would work as a stand-alone top, but also thin enough to layer under jackets.
11-15. Blue camo shirtdress, $22. It's pretty baggy and shapeless on its own (15), but a belt creates more waist definition. This is a S, the XS was too tight around the arms. It's a bit short so I'd probably wear it with black capri leggings underneath for MOTG.
16-22. Denim moto jacket, $63. I am really loving this silhouette--now I own the Spiegel leather jacket, black Halogen knit moto, white Dorothy Perkins, and this one all in the draped moto style. Plus, I love the polka dot lining! I do have a cropped AE denim jacket, but that one is shorter and lighter in color.

Thanks a lot for helping me decide!

    I'm not a big help.. I love everything!
    Those camo skinnies are lovely! You are already in great shape!
    Love the dress. I prefer without the belt.

    Love the denin jacket, so stylish

    I like the skinnies and the textural shirt on you. Not sold on the grey shirt or the moto. They seem too RATE for you, but maybe that is where your MOTG styling is headed?

    Thumbs up on the jeans. Yes, they are a bit squeezy but your figure is getting trimmer and trimmer. Three kids and nursing one of them - Who needs the gym?
    The textured tee and denim jacket are great. I'm not swooning over the dress, which I find too short or the sweatshirt which is too thin and clingy. Hope this helps.

    Love the jeans. The jacket is cute too. I am on the fence on the rest.

    I'm going to go against the grain here and say, I actually really like the dress. The only piece I don't like is the grey baggy sweater, and I'm not sure about the moto. Either way, you look good! Hope this helps your decision-making.

    I like the jeans and the moto.  You look super cute in that outfit with your sneakers.  I like the dress unbelted too, but I kind of like that unstructured style of dress - you seem to like more waist definition in your outfits.  I like the second top better than the first one.  It seems to fit a little better.

    I love the pants! And I like the dress, but honestly the first thing I noticed was that those metallic boots look fabulous when I saw the first picture of it. So maybe that says more about how fab the boots are than the dress! The jacket fits well, but I am not fond of moto styles in denim, so I am not a good judge of that.

    Skipping responses for now for an unbiased opinion. I'm a yes on the camo dress but a no on the camo pants.  The dress seems like the perfect ladylike version of camo for you.  The pants seem a little too tough girl for your style, even casual wear.  
    Off to see the consensus ;)

    My favorite is the denim moto.  I could take or leave the rest.  The jeans look like a good fit, but they are short.  If it helps, BR is having a 40% off sale as we speak.

    Thanks for modeling some of the things I've been considering on the Gap website! :-) I love the textured tee, but it does seem like the circle hem tee might be a little clingy. I love the denim moto on you. The dress looks cute, and I think it would be adorable with leggings too.

    I like the skinnies! Not sold on the tops which are not a great fit to my eye. I tried the camo dress and found the sizing weird - S was too big but xs cramped my shoulders. I would never belt but since you do, it looks fab that way! I'm neutral on the jacket.

  • catgirl replied 6 years ago

    Also you are looking a bit IT here to my eye!

  • kkards replied 6 years ago

    yes on the jacket, love, love. 
    on the fence about the camo jeans -- with the gray cons they look good, otherwise they seem short.
    not really feeling the other pieces
