Mini Old Navy Try On

Happy Monday friends! I am happy to report that we had a very low key, do whatever the heck we want kind of weekend with no bumps. Kent had a great Father’s Day. I surprised him with movie tickets to see Oceans 8, which he really enjoyed. We like to go to a theater with the recliners and watching movies this way is so much better than your regular ol’ theater. He (we) got to FaceTime with all the kids and just enjoyed the day. I hope the men in your life were also able to enjoy their Father’s Days as well.


Between the wedding and funeral I had a chance to pop into Old Navy and try on a few things, so today I’ll share a mini try on session with you. I find that Old Navy is usually hitting it out of the park or just bunting. (you’d think I was a sport enthusiast with my comparisons, but I’m really not. HA) Honestly, I’m not quite sure what this season is as far as ON goes. I found several things that were tempting and some that were not so much.


This tie front top was cute and comfy. It’s a very pale pink and I couldn’t find that color online, but found some others to link to. I went out on a limb and tried on some shorts. These are 5″. I’d really probably like 7″ which is a little longer but not quite Bermuda length. All the shorts are currently 50% off making most of them about $12 and that’s a bargain, so if you are a shorts enthusiast, hit them up.


I’d love a cute pair of denim shorts that are a short length with raw hems and distressed, but I just can’t wear them. You know how your kids are always yammering on about “life’s not fair”? Well that’s exactly how I feel when it comes to my legs. I’ve been exercising for over 20 years and eat pretty darn good and still I’m plagued with an abnormal amount of cellulite on the front of my legs, especially for someone my size. I’ll be totally transparent with y’all too. When I have pictures like the first on in green shorts, I do retouch the places that look so bad due to my own vanity. #ihatecellulite Moving on to the tee, this is a good tee as far as tees go. Nice and soft, and thick enough not to be flimsy.


I adore a sweet little top with feminine details. I know that’s no surprise to y’all at this point. Eyelet is precious and summery and I think the scalloped hem is just soooo cute. As if that wasn’t enough, add in some tassels. This would be so cute with a pair of white jeans for a fun girls night out or date look.


I love this top in theory, but it’s really thin. I think it could still be okay, but I’ll also tell you the elastic around the shoulders ran big and you’d want to think about sizing down. I’m a sucker for gingham and add that sweet eyelet border on the sleeves takes it right over the edge. How cute would this be for a backyard BBQ? I could feel my inner Ellie Mae coming right out. LOL


This halter style top was my favorite. There’s just something about this cut that I love. It’s so flattering on your shoulders and more fun than a tank top cut. It’s also available in several prints and I am now dying laughing at myself because as I look at it on the website I realize I have it on backwards. LOL!!! So here’s the good news, you can wear it with the V in the front or back as far as I’m concerned. I am seriously keepin’ it real with y’all today! #firstcellulitenowbackwardstops


I managed to put this dress on the right way. HAHAHA! We have to be able to laugh at ourselves in this life ladies. I was super surprised when I got in the dressing room and found this little dress (along with several others) had a built-in camisole slip. WHAT? Thank you Old Navy for realizing we don’t want to wear paper-thin fabrics that can be seen straight through when the sun shines. A+ for you. If I hadn’t already purchased the next blue and white striped dress from Old Navy, I’d have probably brought this one. I love the lace up detail and cute embroidered type trim on the top.


See, this one is super cute too and it looks like no longer available, but it does come in chambray and that’s available. It’s also fully lined and so comfortable. I’m feeling like this is the summer of dresses for me. Everywhere I go I see another one (or two or three) I want.


This one was the big winner for the day! By far my favorite. It was the perfect length on me, loved the cut of the top, soft fabric, dark and very flattering. It was all things wonderful and I just might have to give in. OH and it’s currently 50% off, so basically a steal. How cute will this dress be on vacation or just dinner out, heck it’s so comfortable you could just wear it around the house and feel all fancy like that.


Before I go, just let me put in a plug for following along on Instagram. Sometimes things make it on there that don’t make the blog, so don’t miss out, and if you’re following there, you may as well follow on too. That’s a super easy way to get outfit details all in one place.
Here’s to a great week!!!

    Those last two dresses are darling! Like SUPER CUTE! And I love the yellow top too. Great sale. And we’re spoiled, simply can’t do regular movie theaters anymore. Recliners….life changer! Hope your week is off to a GREAT start!

      Thanks sweet lady. Yep, once you go recliner…well, you know the rest. HA.

    Okay, you obviously look beautiful in all of these, but that halter neckline is flawless on you! I love me some Old Navy because you just can’t beat the deals. Also, unrelated, YAY for recliners at the movies! We had a place when we lived in Utah called Brewvies that had those AND drinks. Sold haha 😉

      Oh Melissa, you are just such a doll. Maybe you’ll find a new recliner theater in Washington. Fingers crossed!!! Welcome to the “Left Coast”.LOL XO

    Ellie Mae you look marvelous!!! I love that striped tiered dress on you, I may need to snag that in chambray! That yellow gingham is fantastic too but those denim shorts are too long, maybe you need to buy a pair and have them altered for the perfect fit. That maxi dress is GORGEOUS and I can see why it was the big winner, I haven’t seen that in my ON. Genius you wearing the halter top backwards, I like the V in the front. Although I can’t help but wonder if I’m rubbing off on you, you know I am challenged when it comes to doing some things. It worked out in this case because that top is darling!!
    Love it all and you too!

      Well you would know I bought the long shorts, but I’ve rolled them up one more time. They are comfy like the Rockstar jeans, so even if I only wear them around the house, that’s ok.?. I don’t know how long I’ll be able to hold off on that maxi. I need another dress like I need a hole in my head. Wearing something backwards is just symptom of my life these days. HA! XOXO

    I bought the 7” inch shorts earlier in the summer and love them. They even shrunk a little after washing and ended up being the perfect length. I think the yellow gingham blouse looks so good on you!

    • June 18, 2018 / 4:32 pm

      Hey girlie! Thank you. I got the 9” and rolled them up one more time. They are really comfy like the Rockstar jeans. Yippee!!!

    I think that black maxi dress is my absolute fave! I love the palm/floral print on the bottom. I could use a longer pair of shorts like you have on here, I hate how so many shorts run so short! That yellow gingham top is so darn cute! It does look sheer and it’d be hard to wear a cami under it… maybe a bralette would work.


    • June 18, 2018 / 4:31 pm

      Thanks Carrie! It’s actually navy which is a nice change for me. I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to resist going back and buying it. HA. Saw your story a little while ago with the kitchen torn out. So exciting!

    I love the yellow gingam top and the tank tops that follow. I struggle with keeping the elastic band in place! Any suggestions? laura

    • June 18, 2018 / 4:30 pm

      HI Laura, I wish I knew the magic answer. OTS tops are just hard. There are a few that will not bug me too bad, but most of them are a struggle. Sorry I’m not any help. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. XO

    That yellow top is so adorable, hope it was a keeper and that dress looks incredible on you! xo, Biana – BlovedBoston

      Thank you Biana! I came home with nothing…I should get a prize for being a good girl. LOL

    You are so funny about your cellulite and the backwards top. I can’t believe you have cellulite and the top looked perfect to me with the opening in the front. The Maxi dress is so cute on you! Glad you and Hubby enjoyed a low key weekend, you both deserved it. Happy week!

    • June 18, 2018 / 7:19 pm

      I sure wish I was making it up. Hope you and your hubby had a wonderful weekend too. OX

  9. June 18, 2018 / 6:08 pm

    Everything looked so good on you! I’m sad the yellow top wasn’t perfect, because it is so adorable! And do not worry about cellulite! THat’s actually something I feel like I always have an abnormal amount of too (in the same spot as where you say yours is) but my husband says he doesn’t even notice it, so I think we just always notice more about ourselves!

    • June 18, 2018 / 7:18 pm

      Oh Kasey, you are such a doll to encourage me. Thank you sweet girl. Hope your week is off to a great start! XO

    Love this fun try on session! I am SURE that halter tank has to be reversible! It looks perfect the way you have it…how else can you show your necklace!? LOL. I’m impressed with your discipline if you came home with none of this stuff per your comment below!

      Thanks Gina! Here’s a funny story. I laugh about how I shop at Target. I put stuff in my cart thinking I “might” buy it and by the time I get to the register I’ve taken it out. (of course my husband just loves it. LOL) I call it virtual shopping. HAHAHA!

  11. June 19, 2018 / 8:03 am

    I’ve had a hard time ordering anything from ON online lately, it all looks so blah! But seeing these pieces on you, has me changing my mind. I love the eyelet top especially!

    Pumps and Push-Ups

    • June 19, 2018 / 8:25 am

      They are so hit or miss for me too Brooke. There are some seasons I love it and some I’m not even the least bit tempted. Happy Tuesday!!! XO

    I love it when dresses come lined! It’s so helpful. I hate wearing separate slips. There are some great items you tried on. I love that tie front tee!

    • June 26, 2018 / 5:00 pm

      The good news is, they are almost always having a sale?
      Thanks Trish!
