Old Navy Whaaaa??

The other night I stopped in to Old Navy for the first time in aaaaaaages.  It's sorta out of the way of my typical routine, and well, the last few times I went into Old Navy, I just wasn't all that impressed.  Just too warehousy and bore-o.  But I have to quick little spin around the store this week gave my heart a little jumpstart in changing its tune.  

I'm talking neon and trendy colors, florals and stripes galore.  I'm kinda in love with the fact that so many of the trends right now have options with lots of skin-coverage.  I mean, if you want skank, you can find skank, but it's a lot easier to find ladylike options right now if you are so inclined.

All that to say that I hit up the clearance rack for some cheap-o finds...

First I snagged a couple of sports bras (the whole reason I went in there in the first place)....
I really liked the support, coverage, and fun colors on these...the website is listing them for 14.97 right now, but I found these in the store for 5.99 each.  I also grabbed the minty-teal one!

Then I grabbed these shorts.  Perfect length to make it worthwhile to wear shorts without the moon coming out early, and I think they will be really cute with a simple black tank.

The picture doesn't do them justice...they're really an awesome cobalt blue and black...great contrast.  The website lists them for 14.97, but in the store I snagged them for 6.49.

And lastly, I settled on this dress.  The tiers at the bottom are fun, it's a light cool satin, and I like that the colors in the floral make the neutral base color work with my skin tone.  I really wish the hemline was higher in the front, but not sure I can diy that with the tiers going on?  Hmm...
This is 17.97 right now online, but I grabbed it in-store for 6.97.

And here's the one that got away...
The color is obviously addictive, although I don't think I could pull it off anytime other than the middle of the summer.  It was on the clearance rack for like $17 or something, so I waved goodbye to it and skipped off to the register with my purchases...

only to discover Old Navy cash?  Hellooooooo there!  Obviously it's been a while since I've been there.  And I guess that means I'll have to go back...

What have you loved at Old Navy lately?


  1. I've never been one for the Navy...I bet it's been over 4 years since I've shopped there? BUT love your items and the sports bra's are a steal! Love those shorts and the moon comment...I find it's hard to find shorts that offer good coverage...I'm not a teenie bopper and can't show my goodies...And those them. Great post...makes me wanna Navy shop...maybe I'll take a peek next time I'm in the neighborhood.


  2. Last I went I found a cute green dress I wore for St. Patrick's, but before that I had not been in forever. Sadly, it wasn't on sale and although it was too wasn't worth the price I paid, but I needed a green dress?! I need to go back and check now... with the great deals you found :)

  3. I was just at Old Navy on Monday. However, I had the wilds with me. I missed all the good deals. Bummer! Also wanted to let you know I nominated you for the Liebster award!

  4. I didn't know about Old Navy cash either! I'll definitely have to stop in soon. Cute finds too, I really like the shorts.
