As I write this post, the first day of Spring is showcasing chilly temps with remnants of Winter Storm Stella finally melting away. I’m sorry Mother Nature, was our enjoyment of an early spring ruffling your feathers? You had to send an icy chill to freeze over everything blooming early? The nerve! Any other time I’d be thrilled for winter weather. I live for it. But after getting used to 60 and 70 degree days, long pup walks outside and being able to crash on the deck in sunshine after work, there is no love for winter weather left in this heart of mine. And sadly as you can see, it looks more like fall than spring outside in Virginia right now. Thank goodness for spring style to help us forget this week brings us even more freezing temps!
Old Navy feels the same about sending winter packing, kicking off spring in stores right now with their “Hi, Fashion” campaign where they “let fun be the fashion statement, versus you being the fashion statement.” Their Neo-Nautical collection is filled with tops, dresses and jackets in bright colors, bold stripes and classic looks. I was thrilled to collaborate with Old Navy, putting together some springtime looks featuring my version of Neo-Nautical style. Think different hues of blue with pops of bright white to put a twist on your classic blue and white nautical feel.
I’m a huge fan of the denim jacket, wearing the handful in my closet year round, so when I found this beauty in bright white, I knew I wanted it as the key piece in my look. It has everything I look for in a denim jacket – it’s the perfect length where it’s not too short but still shows I have a waist, the arms aren’t too fitted so I can roll the sleeves if I wish and even though it’s white (which is typically the worst possible color I can put on my body), it’s constructed with Old Navy’s new “Stay-White” denim technology which repels stains and spills so you can be as messy as you wish! I can assure you there will be plenty of opportunities for me to test this theory out and report back to you on this miracle denim fabric…sadly.
This bright blue dress with white flowers is also a new wardrobe favorite as I’m loving the fabric and fit. The fabric is a bit heavier so it keeps its shape throughout the day while still hugging your curves in all the right places without any sagging or stretching. I’ve already picked up a second version in black which can go to the office as easy as it can to the grocery store with sneakers on the weekend. I love being able to maximize my closet with pieces like this! For the taller ladies, the dresses do come in Tall. After trying on the regular length, I did pick up the dress in Tall. The overall fit was better over my hips while being a little bit longer in length. And how cute are these flats?! I’m NOT a flats wearing girl. Besides heels, I’ll wear my Minnetonka moccasins (with howling wolves…they’re awesome!) and that’s about it. But I like these! They are quite feminine and didn’t make my ankles look as thick as I thought they would! Always a plus!
A huge thanks to Old Navy for asking me to participate in this collaboration! I’ll be posting another look early next week with both Neo-Nautical and Parisian vibes. Ooh la la! Until then, you can shop these pieces and a few of my other favorite Old Navy items from this collection below!
