Just a quickie post as I realized Old Navy’s 20% off new arrivals (use code ONNEW20) ends tonight. I recently browsed their website and was pleasantly surprised by all the spring choices. Unfortunately, knowing their quality and typically generous fit, I’m keeping expectations low. I started with a mountain of items in my cart, and whittled it down to these three (out of which, I’m only expecting the blue skirt to fit):
The bright blue skirt looks so comfy and perfect for warm, casual days…I was ecstatic to see it available in petite. I’ve received several emails from women who are self-conscious about their legs for one reason or another, seeking advice on what to wear in hot weather. I have skin issues and inverted bow knees (got the obligatory teasing for both in grade school), and thus used to be very uncomfortable showing my legs. Although I’ve gotten over it as I slowly learned to embrace my body, I can still relate. I highly recommend maxi skirts or dresses (I love a good maxi) for staying covered up, yet cool and comfortable.
I bought the maxi skirt last week but customer service kindly gave me a price adjustment for 20% off. Here are some other items that were in my cart but got cut…
A-lined skirts are not typically my style, but there’s something about this chevron/striped one that looks preppy-chic yet demure. I can see it being flattering on women of various body types.
I’ve been looking for a lightweight, semi-sheer white shirt with good drape for a while, however the white color here is sold out in small sizes. It has lots of good reviews, so may be worth checking out if you like the bright blue or poppy orange color. If you wear regular sizes, the sales in-store are usually better, so I’d check stores before buying any clearance items online. Unfortunately, special-sized ladies may have to shell out a bit more online to snag our size.
