Guys, you gotta check out Old Navy’s style spring preview event. It ends today. The whole store is 30% off — or if you use your ON/GAP/BR card it’s 40% off! I will only purchase stuff from Old Navy if it’s at least 30% off since the quality of their clothes is sometimes sketchy – but lately I’ve been very happy with my purchases! And their spring line is super cute!
I’ve already picked up a few items in store, but ordered a few more. Below are my top picks:
#1: slub-knit tee This top comes 8 different colors — I ordered the blue floral option online — I think it will pair super cute with a pair of shorts or pencil skirt this spring!
#2: v-neck cardigan This cardigan also comes in a slew of colors! I have several from last season and even though they are on the thin side, I haven’t had a problem washing them. They are perfect for those warm spring/summer days where you need something to take the chill out of the air inside.
#3: mesh-knit sweater I purchased the navy-blue striped color yesterday in store — oh it’s super cute! You will need to layer with a cami underneath, but will be perfect this spring with shorts or cropped pants.
#4: moccasins These aren’t normally something I would purchase, but my husband pointed out he loved the mint color — so I said I’d “try” them. And alas, they are now in my closet. I gotta say – they are actually pretty comfy! I’m not sure I could wear them all day at work on my feet (will update on that), but for an everyday flat, totally worth the price!
#5: pixie shorts The “pixie” line for Old Navy is relatively new. I don’t remember them having a short version last year. They have their “twill” shorts, which are a little thinner and cheaper. I have one pair and they are okay. I tried on 2 pairs of this new pixie line yesterday and LOVE them! I have several pairs of J. Crew Factory shorts which are very similar, and I like the Old Navy ones better! They are a little thicker and lay nicer. They are the PERFECT length also. I feel like sometimes 3″ inseams are a little too short for me nowadays… and 4-5″ is sometimes too long. These are 3.5″ — so I bought 2 pairs yesterday and ordered the pink pair online. 🙂 One of the colors I purchased was a dark gray color (not online), so check out in store if you’re looking for that color!
#6: denim shorts I have a few pair of ON denim shorts from last year (also 3.5″ inseam) and I wore them all the time last summer. I didn’t see them in store — I ordered the color shown below for this coming season. The only drawback — the cuff is able to be rolled up and down (which is nice), but after washing I had to iron them cuffed again to stay in place and look neat & tidy (or maybe that’s my OCD….)
#7 blazer I’ve had this blazer for awhile — but had to share it again, it’s one of my most “clicked on” items (yes — I’m watching what you like/disklike! :P) And it really is a staple. It can be dressed up or down, with jeans or work pants, and extremely versatile. Can’t beat the price either!
#8: dress I saw this dress hanging in the store. It comes in two colors — the other one is this lovely white with blue polka dots. I don’t really NEED any dresses, especially ones that aren’t very versatile. But you know how when you see something in the store and can’t stop thinking about it when you get home? That’s when you know you HAVE to have it. Or at least try it. I can’t wait to feature it on the blog!
#9: plaid shirt I feel like this speaks for itself. It’s plaid. It’s lightweight. It’s cute. I love it. The end. 🙂
So anyway, that was my Old Navy overhaul yesterday and this morning! I probably won’t purchase anything more from them this season — and I honestly might end up returning some items. Since we are moving to FL in 2 months (OMG), I’m okay purchasing summer stuff since I know I will use it over and over for awhile. I’ve started the whole sad process of selling all of my warm sweaters and things I’ve only touched a couple of times this season. I know it’s unlikely I’ll use them again, but I get stupidly attached to my clothes — *sigh*
