Week O’Nautical – Old Navy

Happy Memorial Day!!!  Raise your hand if you’ve ever worn an Old Navy flag t-shirt… I mean if you havne’t at least at some point in your life I’m not sure we are on the same level.  Old Navy has kinda been my go-to for my patriotic pieces over the years.  I may not be buying those $5 flag tee’s but I have def found some really fun pieces, including today’s look… head to toe Old Navy.

Last year I was smitten with Kelly Ripa’s 4th of July look with this yellow Ralph Lauren Sweater look. I’ve kinda stalked Poshmark for one but haven’t come up with a score yet.  BUT I absolutely found a look from Old Navy inspired by it.

The key takeaways are yellow and the US flag, which we have!  I saw this denim jacket with a flag screen print on the back and was like I NEED THAT.  Then I saw that my favorite linen pants came in yellow this year and I was like I NEED THAT.  THENNNNN I saw they had a tank with a built in shelf bra in a raceback ribbed style and I was like I NEED THAT.  Lucky for me those 3 pieces came together to be one killer Week O’Nautical look!

You can’t have an Old Navy look without a pair of Old Navy flip flops!  Even if you don’t get them on the $1 sale these $3 flip flops in a gold tone are perfect spring/summer staple.  I love these things for the lake, taking the garbage out, running an errand… etc… I have them in so many colors.

Week O’Nautical: Ms. Patriotic

Week O’Nautical – Ms. Patriotic

Just call me Ms. Patriotic.  I don’t know when my obsession with all things Americana happened but now I’m kinda known for it.  Week O’Nautical sails on with another patriotic look featuring the Avon Ms. Patriotic set and nautical stripes.

Not only do I wear my red white and blue for my patriotic holidays but I also wear it year round.   Key is to finding pieces that work with anything, for multiple occasions like a sparkly red white and blue statement necklace, and/or a versatile bustier top.  Avon usually comes out with a patriotic themed jewelry item, this year they stepped it up with the Ms. Patriotic necklace and earring gift set.  Not only does it work well for the 4th it really stands on its own for any time of the year.  Plus it goes perfectly with my bustier top from White House Black Market that I picked up at their semi-annual sale going on now.

The embellished striped bustier top is one of those items that looks good with a pencil skirt for work or denim shorts for weekend or I just LOVED it paired with the matching skirt, that gives you a dress look with separates (which you can mix and match with other things for more versatility).  For my look I just paired it with a navy pencil skirt and my go-to heels and current fav red earrings and a stars printed bandana on my blue bag (last seen here)

As I sail through the work week to our patriotic weekend this Week O’Nautical look really sparks me into the 4th of July mood.  Tonight I’ll switch to some denim shorts and wedges for a little pre-4th fireworks and hanging out.
