10 Surprising Finds at Old Navy!

I’ll be honest. I’ve only ventured into Old Navy a few times. It’s mostly the atmosphere of the store that drives me nuts. I don’t do well with chaotic shopping situations. I’ve actually purchased a lot of their clothing at thrift stores after mistaking it for vintage. Here’s the thing: Old Navy does a really great job of replicating really sweet vintage prints and textiles. I was pleasantly surprised, upon my latest visit to their website, to find that the fabric content of their clothing is often really great too. I found a lot of 100% cotton dresses and shorts for this summer season. They also do a stellar job with their plus-size line. Below you’ll find my current favorites from this season. Mix up some of these inexpensive (starting at $12.94) Old Navy pieces with some of your vintage favorites, and you’ll be looking super sharp this summer!
