WIW 12/3: J Crew tipped peacoat and Angie's Gap sweater

Hi all! Happy Monday!
Today I am wearing the Gap sweater that Angie is wearing in her gorgeous outfit post:
I was looking for a white fisherman sweater and originally ordered the one from J Crew, but it turned out to be too itchy. Turns out Angie had already posted about that issue, should have read it before I ordered! So after reading her turtleneck post and her acrylic fiber post, she told me about the Gap sweater and I deduced which one it was by matching up the fiber content! :) I bought it on Friday but didn't have a chance to wear it over the weekend. But I couldn't resist pulling it out when I saw Angie's post! This is nowhere near as stunning as her version but I like it nonetheless...it's very wam and cozy. The sweater is soft--I'm wearing it with no underlayer and my skin is fine with it. Since Angie paired it with a beautiful cream coat, I decided to wear my new cream tipped peacoat. And my burgundy skinnies and clutch, my favorite color of the season. The necklace also has burgundy accents--I bought it at Ann Taylor in the 90's but who knew burgundy would make such a comeback twenty years later!

By the way, both the sweater and the peacoat are 25% off if anyone is interested!
Gap Dolman cable braid turtleneck sweater in ivory frost (use code GAPGIFT):
You may have to size down--I actually had to size down to XS in this sweater, even with my big pregnancy belly--I tried M and S and they both swallowed me up and the sleeves were too long. I don't like oversized fit though, so your mileage may vary.

J Crew tipped peacoat in antique white (use code STYLE25--free shipping, and no longer final sale!):
This one ran true to (prepreg) size for me--I bought size 4.
Mavi burgundy skinny cords
DSW Urban Expressions Manhattan burgundy clutch
Mia Nanette black lace boots
Ann Taylor gold and burgundy necklace

    So sweet, Natalie! You look cuddly, too. Glad to hear the sweater is a winner!

    You look fantastic in this! We are so lucky (I say as someone in your situation a few years ago). We get to wear fantastic, stylish clothes throughout our pregnancies. No tent dresses. No oversized everything. I'm so grateful that when I was pregnant, I was able to wear contemporary clothing and show off my beautiful pregnant baby belly! You look so fabulous--enviably stylish for any woman, let alone a pregnant gal. Gorgeous! Glorious! Fan-dib-a-dozy-tastic! Sorry to be gushing, but you just look that great!

    That sweater looks so cozy! I can't wait until my peacoat arrives!

    Good grief. You look so cute in this. :)

    How amazing that the over-sized trend is working so well for you! You'll be able to wear that sweater next year too, since it's your regular size. I just have to go on record as saying you look astounding in cream. And burgundy, really. *fanning*

    You look amazing in this sweater. I am envious that you can rock a turtleneck while preggo! What gives?

  • Transcona Shannon replied 5 years ago

    Absolutely lovely Natalie!

  • Day Vies replied 5 years ago

    As usual you look wonderful! I really love the burgundy on you and the cream is so flattering on your complexion. Bravo!

  • ManidipaM replied 5 years ago

    Ditto Una! Amazed how fabulously that *regular* turtleneck works for you while pregnant!

    This is a great outfit though, pregnant or not. Love the tipped coat with it. The trim is the perfect accent for your long dark hair, and a great foil for the burgundy! Very 'Snow White' (the traditional tale, not Disney's blue&yellow version)...

    Hello sweater twin! Natalie, you look so gorgeous and I love that tipped peacoat, as well. What a great price; I just wish I needed one, but I've already got a pretty full coat capsule and hardly wear them, although I do wish for cold weather now and then, so I can! I love your burgundy skinnies and AT necklace! Stay cozy and stylish as you do so well!

    Not meaning to derail your thread, Sveta, but FYI for others: I ordered the S P. I'll keep you posted. I hope I shouldn't have gotten the XS P. But often when the XS is the right size in regular, I need to size up in P.

  • Angie replied 5 years ago

    Psssst. Sarah! Sveta started a separate thread about the sizing question.

  • sarah replied 5 years ago

    Ack. I posted to the wrong thread. I thought I was on Sveta's! I guess it's been a long week.

    SORRY, Natalie - you look cute as a bug. I can't believe you're wearing so many non-maternity clothes.

  • Angie replied 5 years ago


    We adore you, Sarah. :)

  • sarah replied 5 years ago

    Phew ; )

    the feeling is mutual...

    You look darling! I tried that Gap sweater today and it was a "no go" for me:(
