OLD NAVY: I had a Groupon for Old Navy that expired on Christmas Eve, so sis and I hit the store that day. I picked up this top for $7.49.
I usually wear an XS at Old Navy, but decided to go one size bigger so it wouldn't be so snug around the middle. The bright color and chevron pattern remind me of Easter eggs, but I think it will be a delightfully bold addition to the wardrobe. I also like the drapey-but-not-overwhelming sleeve. I also picked up gloves for sis to use in Seattle, and two sweaters for me (still haven't decided whether to keep them).
BANANA REPUBLIC FACTORY STORE: The sepia-toned print on this petite dress ($24) somehow reminds me of Egypt and has a bohemian feel. This is a 4P, and I could have taken a smaller size if there had been one in-store -- I didn't even notice the buttons running all the way down the front until I had slipped it over my head! However, I don't mind the slightly roomy fit, which is kept in check by the sash.
I'm wearing it here bare-legged, but I think this could work with leggings or tights. It might even be fun to swap out the sash for a wide belt. I think this is a dress that the Mr. will find inexplicable, but I'm a sucker for dark blue and elaborate prints.
I'm always looking for good ideas -- How would you style my new top and tunic dress? I'd particularly enjoy hearing about your choice of accessories, as that's an area I'm still working on. :)
