I absolutely love to shop. I am sure that this is absolutely not a shock to anyone who reads my blog. The thrill of finding the perfect piece, the excitement of being able to wear something new and the joy of pairing together outfits are all temporary highs that I love to experience. One store in particular has been a part of that excitement for as long as I can remember.
That store just happens to be Old Navy. Once upon a time we did not even have an Old Navy store in Savannah so the excitement of being able to shop in one provided an even greater high when I would travel and find one to spend all of my money. Old Navy has always been a great place to shop. They have cute clothes at a great price point and they boast a wide variety of sizes. They are always having a great sale and they even usually have an active coupon. Lately though, my love for them has grown even more because they have been KILLING it with their styles and options.
This entire look is from Old Navy and to say that I am obsessed would be an understatement. It has so many versatile pieces that I can use throughout all of the seasons. I originally went it to find mustard colored pants, I know, strange request, but they had one pair left and it was my size! It was fate! With that much luck with my pants, I just had to find a top to match. This peplum was on the mannequin and it was gorgeous. I looked all over the store for it without look so I tracked down the nicest sales associate who gladly pointed it out to me. It has so many great colors once I was able to look at it up close that I knew that it needed to come home with me!
The jacket was a purchase that I made on a whim. The color was great and I am always layering in my wardrobe. As a teacher, I need options to dress up my outfits depending on what I am doing that day. I blazer is a great way to dress up any outfit and give it a more polished look. I also love that this blazer was longer. It gives off a longer silhouette and adds some unexpected details to the outfit. My favorite thing though, was the material. It is a light-weight cotton blend that has this fun, patterned texture. Discreet lines add a fun detail and really takes this blazer from polished and pretty to fun and fabulous. Can you imagine how fun it will be in the Spring and Summer with a pair of shorts?! Perfect for Date Night or a night with the girls!
I loved the neutral vibe that the blazer added to my outfit so I tried to mimic that in my accessories. Beige accessories are great because you can wear them with literally anything. They compliment every color in the rainbow and look great on any skin tone. I love them because they are also unexpected. Handbags and shoes are usually colored because, lets face it, white, beige and cream all get dirty! When wearing this color you do have to be careful, but that is part of the fun! Living on the edge with your wardrobe and breaking all of the style rules is part of the fun of getting dressed! While all of my accessories are older, I have linked similar items for you below.
