Old Navy Shopping Spree!!

For the last several years I haven't been able to find much in Old Navy that I cared for. The style in my opinion was awful huge chevron prints, ugly colors and sequins among other no nos. Well this spring I fell in love with Old Navy again and I went CRAZY in there ended up spending $420.00. I got one of those bags to put stuff in while I shopped and I stuffed one completely full to overflowing and went carrying a arm load of clothes and items as well. I'd say I was in Old Navy probably a good 4-5 hours shopping and trying on clothes. I've lost a lost of weight over the winter and I'm proud to say that now depending on the fit I can wear a size 12 pants / shorts and still a large in tops. Some items I had to get a 14 or a XL in because they ran smaller like Chinos and Polo shirts. Where I lost all of the weight I've needed some new better fitting clothes for awhile now, so I treated myself to huge shopping spree!

The first items i'm going to show you all are 6 pair of flip flops. Now I probably didn't NEED these but I loved the colors and i'm crazy for flip flops so I bought these and got repeats of two of the colors in case they get dirty I will have a second pair, plus the two colors match several items I bought. The yellow is more of a neon highlighter yellow, the camera washed the colors out. The hot pink is a true hot pink, it's neon and the navy has neon orange straps and the purple has jelly neon purple, orange and pink straps. I had to size up from my normal size because the ran a little small and I have a wide foot so my foot hung over the 9s on the sides so I went with a 10 this year. I generally have to size up or down with the flip flops in old navy, the sizing is screwed up a lot and every year my size changes. Last year I believe I had to buy a size 11 to fit my normal size 8 1/2-9 foot. None of these colors are available online YET so you will have to go in the store to get you a pair in these colors. If you are a frequent shopper at Old Navy you know they are 2 pair for $5.00 and you just can't beat that price. There are lots of pretty colors this year they also have a coral which I picked up and accidently picked up the wrong size and put it down and forgot to go get my correct size in the color until I got out of the store.

The next items I bought was these Boyfriend Skinny Khakis in Finding Neon and black. I adore these, and as soon as I saw them they went in my bag to try on. I ended up purchasing a size 14 in these a 12 worked but was a bit too snug for my liking, esp since I plan to wear these to work so I went up a size for a nicer fit.I liked them so well I ended up buying two pair of them.

I also bought several button down dress shirts for work in several different colors. I bought a darker bright pink (in the pink) which is one of the classic shirts. I wanted neon pink which they had just not in my size, so I ended up going with a darker bright pink. I also bought a Buttoned Tab-Sleeve Linen-Blend Tunic in neon yellowish green (Persian Melon) that is slightly different it has sleeves that roll up and button and the pink one does not. The color didn't show up as well on camera and some of the photos of them are better than others. I tried to take the best photos I could given my lack of space and time at the moment. I also bought a Plaid-Print Madras Shirt in Pink Madras and I bought a linen peach button down as well. All of these will mostly be for work but also for casual well as well.

I bought four of the perfect crew tees to go under the shirts. I bought pink, purple, grey, and black. Seeing as how I bought two or more they were only $6.00 each so that was a pretty good deal in my opinion. I kind of wished i'd have picked up a green as well but oh well, maybe some other time. 

Also I'm seeing three small empty boxes above this photo when I preview the post. I have no idea why they are there and no matter what I seem to do they won't go away so just ignore them. I'm also not sure why the spacing is screwed up closer to the bottom of the post so ignore that as well.
I bought myself a bathing suit but it won't be my "main" bathing suit. This is just going to be my bathing suit to sit in the ocean with and i'll have a coverup over it. It will just be something I can wear to chill out and sit in the beach chair and put my feet in the ocean. This was kind of a impulse buy and I will admit I bought it mainly over the color.

I bought a couple of polo shirts as well they had four colors to select from and I bought two of the four. I bought black (pictured) and navy (not pictured because I wore it yesterday). I love polos and couldn't resist buying a few of them.

When I saw the color of these I couldn't resist having a pair. I have a thing for neons at the moment and I can't seem to get enough of them. I bought a pair of the cuffed twill bermudas in Persian Melon. I can't seem to get neon colors to pick up very well on my camera so the color is a bit brighter then what my photos show.

Next I bought the rockstar denim bermudas, which I love. I generally don't buy that long of a short but when I tried these on I loved them and th fit so I bought me a pair of them.

The second I saw these womens everyday khaki shorts I fell in love and knew they would me mine. The color is what hooked me they are a true neon pink and I LOVE them!

Next I bought the sweetheart denim shorts and I LOVE these as well. These fit me perfectly and that's a rare thing for me to find. In fact I think these are the only shorts I've ever tried on that fit me perfectly. I bought these in a size 12 and I am so happy I picked up this pair of shorts to try on.

The last two items I bought were shoes. I bought a pair of actual shoes and a pair of sandals. The cross-strap sandals I had looked at online and they peaked my interest when I saw them.After I got in the store and tried them on I loved them and the color sealed the deal so they went in my bag. The shoes I needed because a lot of things I want to do this summer require actual shoes and not flip flops and since I don't buy actual shoes I needed a pair. When I saw the color and after I tried them on they went in my bag to buy. I love me some neons!
