Wore this over the weekend to run some errands and go shopping. I just bought this shirt from Old Navy for $4!!! I hate Old Navy and its quality but I can't say no to their cheap prices. I'm figuring this will last me a week or so. I'm not complaining...yet.

I tried out a new 'do by Joanna:  the braided top bun. Super easy. Super cute. My hair is layered so there were a lot of hairs sticking out. You can kind of see them in the light. I liked it a little messy!

Don't forget.. You still have a chance to win an account to Pinterest!

I'm wearing H&M sunnies ($1), Old Navy red striped shirt ($4 - buy it!), Spanish gold necklace ($30), secondhand BDG blue skinny jeans ($17), and H&M black flats ($13) with a thrifted black bag ($4).

  2. Love this look! Yay for stripes. I realized this is pretty much how I wear my hair everyday, except I need to get my braided bun higher up!

  5. You look so bad-a in that first pic! It's like you are daring Old Navy to make decent clothes. But this is a really pretty outfit. Simple but fantastic.

  6. ok, seriously...you look 100% bad(ahem)butt in that first picture. like i would be afraid of you if i crossed you in an alley. loving the stripes, though!

  7. OMG, is that thrfted purse Chanel???!? if so, i'm beyond jealous!

  8. You look adorable as always, and I love this easy combination! The pictures look gorgeous too, especially in this lighting!

  9. Love this striped top on you! I agree that Old Navy's quality is sometimes subpar. I feel like years ago they produced a LOT of good stuff and now I find just the occasional good piece. Not complaining - I do have quite a few decent pieces from them - it's just something I have noticed as well.

    LOVE the hair! I need to grow me some longer hairs! :-)~

  21. I want your hair skills.

    I second you on Old Navy -- though some of my most random pieces come from there and they hold up great. I love it when something proves the Old Navy Theory wrong!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hahaha, The Old Navy Theory. Love it.

  24. I almost bought that top yesterday! Way to make me regret it. :-) You look awesome, and thanks for the new hair tip!

  25. i love my old navy skinnies!! they're awesome.
    i tried the heidi-esque crown braid from jo this week and it was bad. my hair's too layered.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love how you rock even a seemingly easy breezy outfit.

  27. I once bought a skirt from Old Navy for...get this...forty-nine cents. But it was hideous and I was in eighth grade. BUT IT WAS FORTY-NINE CENTS. I wore it like maybe twice, and once was Halloween.


    Also: I got an email from you the other day through Shopzilla (I use the Beso widget on my blog too!) and I was like "whaaaaat".

  28. Oooh I love this outfit! and yes, how can you say no to a $4 shirt, haha :D

  37. The top is really cute! Just try not to wash it for as long as possible. Then it will last longer. Love the hair.

    ReplyDelete
  38. haha...i have that same top and I love it, but I also am expecting it to last exactly four wears. I'm one wear away if my theory is right. Love your outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Seriously!! It feels so fragile...like a paper bag.. I'm really not expecting it to last longer than a month. Eh!

  51. Oooo, O love this. THe top knot hair style really suits you and I love the shirt.

  52. Your hair looks so cute up! Love the braided top bun, I'm going to have to give it a try-I think they layers will make it look different, but hopefully in a good way. Nice top-I know what you mean I have a love/hate relationship with F21 and Old Navy.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I tell you, it's a total love hate relationship. They have awesome sales but then I wash it and realize I might have well thrown my money in the washer too...ugh depression

    ReplyDelete
  54. Stinkin' Old Navy and their tempting prices! I also hate them, but can't resist the cheapness. Also, if I had enough hair (meaning not the thin, baby fine curls I have) I'd totally try that bun.

    ReplyDelete
  55. i haven't been to an old navy in so long but that top is a great steal. this whole outfit is a great steal! and the next time i'm in L.A. i will have to put up a Tweet so all my fave bloggers will know that I'll be in town so we can meet up! I'll definitely let you know the next time! :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Thanks for the sweet comments lately! Liking this cute casual look, and loving the bun, of course!! Too cute!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I like your hair, and the half tucked shirt. Old Navy is where way too much of my clothes come from. I always seem to hit a great sale, and stock up on their clothes. Also, their pants fit me pretty well.

  60. How do you do these clean stylish looks? I always look like I have got dressed in the dark when I try this. I am in awe.

    PS Thanks for your comment yesterday. My haircut was actually 2.5 months ago so it definitely needed a trim. Today was the day.
