Our Closet--A Trip to Old Navy

Last night, J and I decided to make a trip to our neighborhood Old Navy to look for some shorts.  He had no shorts in any suitable sizes for the upcoming warm weather, so we thought Old Navy would be a good place to start.  After some perusing, we decided to pick up a few pairs of pretty no-nonsense cargo shorts for really cheap.
Old Navy Men's Authentic Cargo Shorts or Plaid Plain-Front Shorts
While I wasn't planning to buy anything for myself (trying to stay strong to the clothing hiatus), I asked J to pick out a few things for me.  It's always fun to get a different person's perspective on what he or she believes would look good on you, especially if he is your boyfriend.  J has a pretty good eye, because I came out with a few great items.  His first item was the navy and white striped romper below.
Old Navy Tie-Front Romper (Navy/White Stripe), Old Navy Khaki Heather Cardigan, Dolce Vita Elijah Gladiator Sandals, Anthropologie Gold "Bunny" Earrings
His other recommendation was the linen-blend roll-up dress below.  I purchased them in the sherbet orange and rolled oats shades featured below.  I really wanted to get the white one as well, because I thought it would be such a great summer item--but alas, the two small sizes left in the store were strangely large.
Old Navy Linen-blend Roll-up Dress, Accessories (L to R): Alexis Bittar Triple Link Earrings, Ralph Lauren Wide Elastic Belt, MICHAEL Michael Kors Python Belt, Shoes (L to R): Tory Burch Sally 2 Wedge Peeptoe Pumps, Nine West Riot Sandals, Kelsi Dagger Kassa Sliver Metallic Sandals
Overall, I'm really excited about these items for the warmer weather to come.  The linen-blend dresses are going to come in quite handy... and I can't wait to wear that romper out on the BEACH.  (Oh man, the word "beach" seems like worlds away!!)

  1. you know i have my issues with Old Navy, particularly their sizing, but I gotta hand it to you. Your styling of the outfits really transforms them from blah to something pretty special. of course, kudos to J for selecting some pretty cool pieces on your behalf.
