When I was packing for Disney World, I realized that all of my summer clothes, mainly my shorts, didn’t fit. They were all 2 sizes too big. Granted, I’m not one to complain about losing weight, but I did realize that if I didn’t wanna look like a bum that I was going to have to look for some new clothes that were great for summer but fit my budget. (Or, lack of a budget.) I ran in Old Navy with about 10 minutes of time to spare, and hit the summer jackpot! Check out some of my fab finds!
I love this simple cross-front jersey dress – great by itself, or with a cardigan to dress it up. I bought it in this color (my signature pink!) and I’m planning to wear it with a white or light pink tank top underneath it and some simple flip flops. Then I can dress it up with a fun necklace or some chunky bracelets. Oh, and PS? It’s only $14.99!
I also fell in love with this sweet little lined sundress with the diagonal stripes – I love the cut and the pattern is adorable. At 5’8″ I have longer legs, so it’s a tad shorter than my comfort level, but I think I can learn to get over it. Or, I’ll pull an old trick from my days in Catholic School — wear a pair of shorts underneath. I know it’s a major fashion no-no, but if you won’t tell, I won’t either. I’ll confess to one of my major fashion pitfalls – I bought this dress in a pattern and a solid (purple). I loved the cut that much. This dress runs from $15-$20, depending on color.
The last sweet little find that I scooped up were these floral cut-out babydoll tanks. They are lightweight, cool, and trendy. I may or may not have grabbed this in two colors too, and um, one of them MIGHT be pink. Jeez, I’m bad. Please, someone stop me! Oh yeah, each of these are $14.99, on sale from $19.99. Sa-weet!
I have to say, I’m really impressed with Old Navy’s merchandise right now. Apparently I’m not the only one — the entire shopping mall was practically deserted, except for Old Navy, where women were literally lunging for the last dress in their size. (That may or may not also be something I’m guilty of. Ahem.) If you haven’t been by there lately, check it out. Happy Shopping!
