Summer Escape

It's hard to believe that the summer is more than half over and it's almost August already!  I, for one, want to savor every moment before the cool weather hits and school starts again.  One of the best ways to take full advantage of this last month is to take a mini-getaway.  Whether it's a day trip to the beach or a long weekend to explore a new place, now is the perfect time to escape the everyday, soak up the sun and relax a little.

Today I'm sharing 3 new looks using Old Navy items that I would wear throughout the day on a quick trip out of town.  I chose neutrals that would be easy to mix and match with global-inspired patterns.  These are the ideal end-of-summer pieces because they have a comfortable relaxed feel, which is exactly the type of effortless style I crave when I'm on vacation.  Today only,  you can get 30% off your online purchase of $75 or more at Old Navy when you use code ENJOY!


When I'm exploring a new place & know that I'll be walking most of the day, comfort is of the utmost importance. But there's no reason to sacrifice style when you're sightseeing.  This chic patterned skirt has deep pockets & an easy fit that's just right for a warm summer day.  I topped it off with a gorgeous olive green tee made of a soft silky fabric, which further elevates this casual day look.

What I'm wearing:
c/o Old Navy V-neck Tee (comes in 7 colors; wearing an XS), c/o Old Navy Jacquard Skirt (wearing an XS), 
c/o Old Navy Sandals (similar here or here)Similar Necklace, ALDO Hat (similar), 
Madewell Bag (similar), Similar Bracelets (here & here)


Packing light for the weekend means selecting items that can do double-duty in a pinch.  If I know that we'll be heading to the beach or a lakefront, I make sure to choose a cover-up that I can also wear as an outfit if needed. This patterned tunic is slightly sheer, which lets the fun print of my swimsuit show through, but works just as well layered over a cami & paired with shorts.

What I'm wearing:
c/o Old Navy Tunic (wearing a XS), c/o Old Navy Bikini Top & Bottoms
c/o Old Navy Denim Shorts (similar here or here), J. Crew Sandals
c/o Old Navy Tote (similar), c/o I Love Jewelry Necklace, c/o ShopLately Earrings (similar)


The embroidered details on this dress makes it a festive choice for dinner out + the forgiving cut means I can indulge a little without it showing (what vacation is all about!).  Though I chose to wear it in the evening, it's one of those pieces that can be easily dressed down with flat sandals & a roomy tote.

What I'm wearing:
c/o Old Navy Dress (wearing an XS), Dune London Heels (similar), c/o LuLu*s Clutch (similar), 
J. Crew Factory Earrings (similar), Madewell Cuff (similar), Lips: L'Oreal Volcanic
