Gingham and Stripes

There was a period of a couple years when I didn’t even set foot into an Old Navy. I had a couple of disappointing visits and kind of wrote the store off, but no more. They initially intrigued me with that cute owl sweater I bought, and now they’re kind of winning me over with their nearly-identical-to-J.Crew button downs.

Sure, the fit is not quite as perfect as it is with J.Crew, but the style is spot on. And when I can walk out of a store with a shirt dress and button down for about $15? No complaints from this girl.

From now on I’m definitely keeping Old Navy on my radar.

Are you a fan of Old Navy?

    $15 works for me! I haven’t been in Old Navy in years for the same reasons, but this past winter has really made me rethink that! You look amazing! I love the way you styled the striped dress! And I want those shoes!!!

    I haven’t been to Old Navy in a long time now that you bring it up! Love the mixed patterns and those shoes make your legs look extra long- don’t you just love nude toned shoes for that?

    Since I spend most of my time in business casual and business clothing, I don’t like to spend a ton on casual clothes, but I want to stay on trend within my classic style parameters. Old Navy totally helps me do that! And it’s even better when I can find some outfits that are work-appropriate as well. Needless to say, I’m a huge fan.

    I love Old Navy! I have great luck there, especially since I am in the process of losing weight and don’t want to spend a lot on investment pieces until I am a more permanent size. They really are the best for basic layering pieces – tanks and tees. And their active wear is awesome too!

    I am definitely a fan of Old Navy! My favorite thing about them, is finding something on sale, taking it to the check-out and finding out that it’s even more on-sale. That really just doesn’t happen anywhere else. Cute outfit! So glad I stumbled across your blog!
