Tag Archives: Old Navy

Last Wednesday, Bubbles & Bloggers had one of our coolest meetups yet. We headed down to Ivy City to Republic Restoratives to enjoy our custom Fresh In The District cocktails, learn about how Fresh Wave works, snack on some delicious treats from Homeshed Kitchens, and leave with the cutest Scout gift bags. While I’d certainly heard of Scout, I didn’t know much about the other brands an d it’s always fun discovering new places and products with my favorite ladies.

Republic Restoratives is woman-founded, “community funded and community driven,” making it the perfect place for a gathering of community minded women to get together. The space itself is really awesome- Dani and I were brainstorming future events while we were still there. Our Fresh In The District was delicious and made just for us! I’m not sure if they’re keeping it around as a permanent item on their menu, but I would recommend if you can get down there to try it!

Fresh Wave is a new-to-me company, but many of the ladies at the event had heard of them and love their products. I’m huge on candles, fragrance, and freshness in my home, but the difference between some of the scents that I use and Fresh Wave is that their products are all-natural. No harsh chemicals. No heavy perfumes. No toxic ingredients. While it was brought up that this is great for pets and kids, let’s be real- natural is better for everyone! I’m currently using the odor removing gel that came in my gift bag and I love the scent!

Thank you to Republic Restoratives, Fresh Wave, Homeshed Kitchens, and Scout for a wonderful night out, and of course to Dani for planning!

We like to have themes for our meetups which makes for awesome pictures in semi-coordinating outfits, and our theme was green. Weirdly enough, I don’t actually own a whole lot of green, so I went for greenery instead with my tropical dress from Old Navy. I love love love the pattern on the dress but the dang thing shrank in the wash, making it a cute tunic.

After a successful Lent of no shopping, I broke it spending entirely too much all at once. To be honest, I think I was feeling better when I couldn’t shop, so I may come up with some kind of deal with myself where I only can shop every other month or something. Not to say I got anything too ridiculous, just that I don’t really need anything at all! From my April wish list, I ended up with the Cupshe Melodic Blues One-piece Swimsuit, the Betseyville Naveah Gladiator Sandals, and the Pintucked Swing Blouse (thanks Mama for the last one!).

  1. I personally think it would be pretty rad to have a driver… and somewhere sunny (read: beachy) to go. Until then I’ll settle for this WildFox Couture Take Me Somewhere tee.
  2. I live in my black quilted Steve Madden slides, and the insoles are starting to come out with my foot every time I take them off. It may be time to upgrade to the Empire. Note: these sold out before this post got a chance to go live, these are similar though.
  3. Old Navy strikes again: I’m loving the Laser-Dot Multi-Tassel Tote for Women.
  4. I’m so into fruit-themed everything for summer and this Watermelon Slice Glitter Keychain is just a cute little something that caught my eye.
  5. Still on the hunt for a utility jacket with attitude and I found this INC International Concepts Linen Embellished Utility Jacket.
  6. Ummmm did you know that Katy Perry has a shoe line? Because she does and her Katy Perry Geli Novelty Beach Sandals are ADORABLE!
  7. I have been wearing my gold Coach loafers (a fab TJ Maxx find) about into the ground. I would love a similar style in pink. Enter the Ralph Lauren Belen Leather Loafer.
  8. …would also love a red like the Cole Haan Pinch Weekender Leather Loafers.
  9. I’ve seen some ADORABLE camo t shirt dresses on Instagram recently. Love this swingy z supply Camo Shirt Dress.
  10. I’m a big fan of totes, fun patterns, and monograms. All those come together in the Printed Crab & Cleek Boat Tote. If I had to choose, it would be the ginger jar pattern shown, but I also love the surf woody and the striped shirt!
  11. Colors + tassels scream summer to me and these Long Rainbow Tassel Earrings are perfection.
  12. Even though most brides I’ve asked said I absolutely do not need a wedding purse, I still love this rose gold bag.
  13. The Victoria Beckham collection was long-awaited at Target. The Black Calla Lily Satin Ruffle Hem Dress is by far my favorite piece!
  14. The open-shoulder style is a little tricky on me, but I can’t help but love the patter on this Entro Cowgirl Patch Dress.

What are you craving for May?

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.
