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: The Nautical Trench Coat

Week O’Nautical: The Nautical Trench Coat

This nautical trench coat is a bit of a unicorn item for me.  With the weather we’ve been having its kind of the perfect piece for a spring layer.  It is functional and seasonal and also classic in style with a classic nautical look in navy and white stripes.

My Unicorn Coat

My Unicorn Coat

Lets go back a few years when Cabi released this beautiful navy and striped trench coat. It was out of my budget and not the most practical purchase for me especially at a higher cost. I live in Nor Cal where coat weather is pretty much only Nov – Feb… and let me tell you I already have a billion coats. So I stalked it.  And stalked it.  And stalked it and wish I had it.  THEN I saw Express release their version, but again at a higher price than I wanted to spend on another coat I don’t need.  I had a great black trench coat from Express that Nicki found me on clearance back during the working at the mall, Elder Beerman days.  Probably like 2001 and that guy lasted me a good 15 years or more.  So when this striped version went on clearance and I was able to get it for pennies on the dollar I swooped it.  That was also in July so it hasn’t even been worn until this spring!  And now, my unicorn coat is home where it belongs, getting its full exposure on Week O’Nautical.

Even living in a climate where coats are super necessary this is still a style that should be a staple.  Come spring we’re all ready to leave all the black and grays of winter behind.  And hey, San Francisco is only a car ride away and I’ll always need a jacket there!

My OOTD is basically this Week O’Nautical look all over again, gold sweater and white jeans.  My sweater is also from Express circa early 2000’s and my jeans are some random brand from Marshalls.  Slides are Calvin Klein from Nordstrom’s Rack… and I’m loving them with white jeans!

I love gooooooold!

You might remember I also wore this trench over my spring dress here, for another look at its versatility.  I found quite a few of this exact jacket on Poshmark and Ebay but I’m also loving this BCBG one and this Rachael Roy one.  I’m hoping I can pack this puppy away soon, but it has been my must have go-to this week!
