When is the last time you walked into an Old Navy? I’ll admit that for me it’s been a couple months. But I recently placed a huge online order for Layla and had to make some returns. Next thing I knew my arms were full of clothes, and I was making a beeline to the dressing room. (Blogger problems? Or probably more like clothes-obsessed problem? 😂) Either way, I found some can’t-miss items and I couldn’t wait to share them with you in this Old Navy Spring dressing room reviews post!
Pre-pregnancy I was a small or medium in Old Navy. Since I’m six months pregnant, I sized up to a large in almost everything I tried. I will give sizing details beneath each item if you have questions!
Knotted Stripe Tee + Drawstring Shorts
Of course I was drawn to a stripe tee. It’s one of my greatest weaknesses, especially this time of year. I loooved the knotted detail. I tried on a large and it was plenty roomy for my bump. In fact I’m pretty sure I could wear this size full term and be okay. All that to say, you probably need to size down in this one!! I should also mention that it’s slightly heavier than your average tee, but not too thick by any means! It also comes in a navy stripe and solid black. How cute would it be for Memorial Day and the Fourth?
I also really liked how lightweight these shorts are! If you live in a warm climate, you need these, y’all. In the summer sometimes even denim shorts feel like too much, but these are awesome. I tried them in a large and a medium, but they’re pictured here in a large. I think you might also want to size down in these unless you want a really relaxed fit. I could fit in the mediums although they were just a little snug across the hips.
Chambray Top + Drawstring Shorts
Just like the striped tee, I was like a moth to a flame when I saw this chambray shirt! I liiiive in them year round and was so excited to see Old Navy carrying a short sleeve version. Again the fit of this piece is relaxed. The large fit fine with a little room to grow, but if I wasn’t pregnant, I probably would have stuck with a medium. Having them a little looser in fit means you can do so much with them! In fact, I layered with this top in a few more outfits if you scroll down! Of course it was a winner. I can’t wait to wear it!
Gingham Top + Drawstring Shorts
This top is the same cut as the chambray, and when I tried it on I couldn’t figure out why it fit so differently! Well, apparently the hanger did not match the size, and I accidentally grabbed the XL. So, I know it looks larger than the chambray version, but the fit is the same! This is another piece that would layer so well for spring and summer. I actually regretted not buying it, and I already placed an order for it. 🙄 Again, check out the other ways I layer the chambray top below for styling ideas!
Stripe T-shirt Dress
Pregnant or not, dresses like this are a must in my spring and summer wardrobe. For everyday, you just can’t beat the comfort and ease of a t-shirt dress! (See all the ways I’ve worn my t-shirt dresses here!) I’d wear it just like this with sneakers. Or pair it with some wedges and a denim jacket or chambray top to dress it up. Use it as a bathing suit coverup. Trust me, you’ll wear it constantly. I’m in a large, and I prefer a slightly relaxed fit over bodycon, so if I wasn’t pregnant I would have gone with a medium. It comes in eight other prints and solids, including an adorable palm print and a classic navy stripe!
Striped T-shirt Dress + Chambray
Just a quick outfit idea for ya! So light for summer but the chambray adds a little extra style! Swap sneakers for flat sandals or some wedges to feel dressier! I think it would look even more adorable with a boater hat or floppy hat!
Gingham Maxi Dress
How precious is this dress?! What I love about it is that it’s modest and covered up while still being on-trend. The neckline is nice and high, so if you’re bending over to pick up kids you won’t have any wardrobe concerns. The maxi length also makes it perfect for getting on the ground or just being outside when it’s breezy. Been through that wardrobe malfunction before… 😉
Striped T-shirt Midi Dress
I actually own this dress in a previous year’s version. (You can see me in it here!) Again, I love the higher neck and midi length. It’s perfect for momming! Also it makes a super-adorable bump-friendly option! Fit is a little bodycon, so keep that in mind. I’m in a large. If you can’t tell (ON lighting is not really my friend!), it’s actually an olive green and white stripe. It also comes in navy and a solid option too!
Striped T-shirt Midi Dress + Chambray
Another styling idea for ya with my handy dandy… notebook! Jk jk… (Toddler moms should get that reference 😂) Moving on…. that handy dandy chambray top! It look so effortless thrown on over a dress. You could also belt it like I did in this chambray top styling post!!
Striped Midi Dress
Oh, I had high hopes for you, dress. I thought the waistline was a little more empire cut, but nope. So, pregnant mamas, I’d avoid this one. But for everyone else, it’s still cute! I loved the ruffled strap! I’d say fit was a little large, but honestly it was kind of hard to tell since it just did nothing for my pregnant body!!
Stripe Swing Dress
This dress is just adorable. It’s fully lined, which is awesome, but it also feels so lightweight for those hot summer months! It looked a little large on the hanger, so I went with a medium and it fit with some room to grow. Definitely size down one if you’re not expecting! I’d wear it with metallic flat sandals for everyday or some espadrille wedges and a woven bag. So sweet and cute. It also comes in this super-pretty blue floral print.
