Tag Archives: Old Navy
What a gorgeous weekend! I checked out a new flea market in Davis Square and scooped up a mini-globe bank from one of the vendors; it’s going to be dangerous now that I know such a great thrifting spot is in my backyard. And in other shopping news, I got an amazing shirt from Old Navy — I couldn’t say no to hot pink and navy stripes. Nothing like a few good bargains to start the week off right!
This week’s 5 under $50 couldn’t be contained to just 5 — I had to add in one extra item because there are so many fun neon pieces out for Summer. Hot pink pairs perfectly with a white tee and a beach-y glow, don’t you think? Are you playing with electric pink in your wardrobe this season?
Lately I’ve been experimenting with bold royal purples and bright tomato reds in my closet. I snagged a light silky purple blouse from Old Navy last week and paired with some of my favorite red chino shorts; then I spotted a purple and red necklace on the sale rack at J.Crew this weekend and scooped it up! I usually associate these colors with the rich hues reserved for the Fall, but pairing them together in light weight fabrics is working for me this Spring. What do you think of this color combination?
Sometimes I don’t realize I’m having a ‘moment’ until I look back and my pinterest boards and notice a trend in my pins — from the looks of it, right now I’m in a hot pink phase. I’m eyeing this super inexpensive striped sweatshirt (it’s only $17!) and those dip-dyed earrings are a DIY with my name on them!
I’m not about to break out the white pants or white sundresses yet — it‘s still only March. But white accessories are fine in my book to introduce when the temperature starts to rise. This week’s 5 under $50 are all white accessories that will have you looking extra crisp without breaking the bank:
This time of year there are a few weeks when Boston gets a little quiet because all of the college students go home for Spring Break. This is awesome if you are in college and get to go on said break. But, if you are a grown up you stay in Boston and look out your window at the beautiful spring weather and daydream about how much fun it would be to take spring break again. And since it’s my daydream, I feel pretty confident I could rock a tiny nautical bikini like this one:
Now that it’s March I’m officially ready to move on with winter and get ready for Spring. What better way to get in the warm weather spirit than with budget-savvy finds in a bright lemon yellow?
I’m always on the hunt for fashionable bargains, so I’ve decided to start a new series called 5 under $50 and round-up some of my favorite finds on a budget. This combination of hot pinks and natural materials like bamboo and cork has me thinking about Spring!

I noticed a pattern popping up in my Currently Obsessed profile, lots of cobalt and corals hues — both colors look great on their own and even better when mixed together. I snagged that blue blouse at Old Navy this weekend, and paired it with a chunky coral necklace; lots of color with a lot of impact!
Can you tell the difference between these two shoes? The first pair is from Kate Spade, and I was obsessed with them last Summer — but couldn’t hit ‘add to cart’ because they were a little out of my budget, and then promptly sold out! The second pair? Those are from Old Navy and cost $22. All I can say is… ‘add to cart’.
