Tag Archives: Old Navy

You’ve seen me rock Old Navy so many times- most recently here. I just live for their soft cotton that, really, holds up forever. I wouldn’t want to have to give up any of the brands I love, but if there was only one brand I was allowed to wear for the rest of my life, Old Navy would be it. Old Navy has grown up with me- from the yellow/ orange combo I picked out my first trip there in grade school, to sweaters I could afford to buy myself in college, to pieces I wear to work over and over again. If you ever need to stock up or refresh, head there, and don’t feel guilty about spending minor bucks for styles that will likely stick around for quite a while. Obviously, I’m obsessed with their dresses, but there’s so much going on at Old Navy right now that I’m just swooning over.

What’s your favorite guilt-free place to shop? Where can you always find the most perfect basic pieces?

I cannot stress this enough, and I’ve said it before: if I could only wear one style for the rest of my life, striped cotton dresses would be it. And they would likely all be from Old Navy. I’ve honestly been wearing Old Navy striped dresses for the past two days. Not only are they easy AF and hold up forever, but I can consistently slip into one and Kendall will be like, “you look beautiful!” No fuss, but much reward.

And I’ve always been a dress girl. I think it would confuse people when I was younger because while most girls opted for jeans or shorts on out-of-uniform days, I reached for a sun dress. After swim team practice- same thing. I’ve just always felt the most myself in a dress. I may not always know how to properly girl, complaining about heels most female would laugh at, but a good dress will win over jeans every time. Pair with a sweet pair of flats or a cute sneaker- I’m set. It’s my uniform, and I’m sticking with it.

So March was… in like… something and out like probably the same thing (a mess) because the freaking weather has taken us all on such an emotional roller coaster. But April showers bring May flowers and now I’m giggling to myself because next April, Kendall and I will be celebrating our wedding at The Mayflower and how perfect is that? April is a special time of year for my family. My mom’s birthday is April 9th, as is my parents’ anniversary (celebrating 29 years this year WHATUP!) and my Uncle Jay and Aunt Jeanie happened to pick the same date for their own wedding 6 years later! Lots of love, lots to celebrate in April!

It’s also usually the first month of the year to really feel like spring! As much as I love getting into the winter cozies, I’m over it. Bring on the sunshine. And in that vein, I bring you my April wish list.

the carolove april wish list

  1. I’m kind of digging this Cupshe Melodic Blues One-piece Swimsuit. Has anyone ordered from Cupshe before? Thoughts?
  2. Last year, Target had this amazing straw tote with pompoms that I really wanted… until I got to the store and it was big enough I could have put a couple toddlers or a weeks worth of clothes in it. The Rainbow Pom Pom Tote from t+j is a much better size AND I love the colors!
  3. I found the Women’s Wildfox More Glitter Manchester Tee last Friday when I was super sad that our CFO was retiring. “More glitter, less bitter” is the best sad day mantra.
  4. I’m still determined to try rainbow highlighter, and at under $10, I won’t mind this little purchase once Lent is over!
  5. This is one of the cutest collabs I’ve seen! If you can’t pick just one color, the Clinique Crayola(TM) Chubby Lip Crayon Box is just the thing for you!
  6. I love my nude studded heels, but they’ve been about run into the ground. Yay for
    Betseyville Naveah Gladiator Sandals and their under $50 price point!
  7. Not going to lie, part of the appeal of the Shashi Caroline Necklace is the name. But I also obviously love the style!
  8. I keep going back to these Rachelle Tassel Chandeliers from Stella & Dot.
  9. Kendall + I kind of want to have a vintage picnic themed engagement photo shoot, but for a real picnic, the ban.do Watermelon Super Chill Cooler Bag is the cutest!
  10. Yes, I’m obsessed with going to Mission for margs with my girls. The Margaritas With My Senoritas Crewneck from Tees And Tank You seems appropriate.
  11. We’ve burned through almost all of the Christmas clearance candles I stockpiled, but it’s time for fresher scents anyway! Bring on the Mimosa Kiki&Me Tumbler Candle!
  12. Stripes. Always stripes. But it doesn’t hurt to have an unexpected detail like this Women’s J.crew Ruffle Sleeve Top.
  13. Candace and I never had jellies because my mom was smart and knew they were painful, sweaty, and not great for your feet. I got the adult version for a music festival a few years ago, and quickly learned that for myself. But the Kate Spade New York Fanley T-Strap Sandal seem like a great, slightly more grown up, option.
  14. Mint is a tricky color for me, but once I have a tan, here I come for this Pintucked Swing Blouse.

How ’bout this weather, huh? I’m currently putting this post together at 1:33PM on Wednesday and it’s 77 degrees and looks like  storm might hit in a little. There is also a chance of snow on Friday. WHAT?! And this is why everyone is sick and miserable.

Last Saturday, in the middle of my feeling pretty nasty, it was simply gorgeous out in the morning in DC. Because I wasn’t feeling so hot, I was actually extra warm and the thought of wearing much of anything was not appealing. Kendall was gearing up for his monthly trip to Mississippi for drill, and I was heading out to my meet my mom for lunch and light wedding planning. Of course I’m going to grab a good old Old Navy sundress and go from there. Urban Expressions had sent me a couple new pretty bangs to replace my broken Gia, and I couldn’t wait to take my Faith for a spin. The light blue + pink combo was giving me total rose quartz + serenity vibes. Of course my music-lovin’ self is adoring the guitar strap purse trend, and the studs make it even just a little bit edgier.

Something else I’m loving right now? I stepped from my silver to a lavender CELEB LUXURY VIRAL COLORWASH shampoo. It’s definitely more bold, but I love that it goes in and out of my hair so easily. In couple washes with “normal” shampoo, I can be back to blonde. I’m just having fun with it. I kind of like my unicorn/ fairy/ troll/ whatever hair, and I’ve been getting compliments from just about everyone but Mama D who I think is having flashbacks to when I was Avril Lavigne for several months in college. If you want to try it yourself in a more contained way, DCists can hop over to Illusions and get some fun color up in that hurr professionally. My DC stylist, Amanda, has me hooked!What do you think about it, honestly?

My 27th year has been my best one yet. The way it started honestly set me up the right way- an endless pizza brunch with my closest friends and my new boyfriend, followed by taking that new boyfriend home for Easter to meet my folks- everyone loved him. The boyfriend became the roommate in my sunny new apartment in September in a weirdly seamless transition. Then my roommate proposed to me on stage with my favorite band.

While Kendall has been a huge reason that this year has been so fantastic, I’ve made a lot of personal gains as well. It started with Dani, truly, and her organization of Bubbles & Bloggers. Without the network she started cultivating, I don’t know that I would have had to guts to relaunch my blog. I certainly wouldn’t have the main squad I run with in DC. I am forever thankful for my new friends. I am braver and more confident than I have ever been.

Speaking of friends, my 27th year also saw 3 of my oldest friends marry the loves of their respective lives. April, May, and June were a collective whirlwind of love and celebration.

Of course this year wasn’t all peaches ‘n’ cream, but the hard stuff that life always comes with makes the sweet stuff even better. As always, a huge thank you to my my parents for always being there when I need to come home, symbolically and literally.

My mom and Kendall have asked me what I want for my birthday. Honestly, I just kind of want to go to Mission for their own birthday celebration– yes I am twins with my favorite HH in the city- and celebrate with whoever is around and wants to join. I don’t need anything- I feel like I have it all! But since I’ve been making monthly wish lists anyway-basically craving all things soft + pastel, with a dash of… statement earrings? The funny thing is that I rarely wear earrings but I have been so drawn to several funky pairs recently.
