What to Buy at Old Navy

This past weekend on the east coast was a hot one, the kind when even the breeze is warm, and many of us are scrambling to find something cool to wear. 

So for today’s What to Buy at post, I’m heading back to Old Navy to highlight a handful of casual options to help you get dressed for busy weekends in the sun. 

As a content creator committed to size-inclusivity, they are one of the few retailers that make my job a little easier. They offer all sizes, including regular (or missy), tall, petite, and women (or plus), with beyond reasonable prices. 

Personally, being in the phase of life where the cost of youth sports trumps designer duds, it’s nice to have an affordable resource for casual pieces. 

When shopping at Old Navy, it’s essential to know what you are looking for; otherwise, the sheer volume of options will feel overwhelming whether you are in the store or online. Therefore, I focus on casual basics, summer dresses, lounge, and activewear in the warmer months. Skip their accessories and shoes, they just cheapen your look.

What to Buy at Old Navy in June

My best advice is to layers these with your better quality pieces to create a timeless, classic look. Wear a better shoe, layer on high-quality jewelry, carry a good bag. The key to dressing well on a reasonable budget is to know where to spend and save and then combine those high and lower-end pieces.
Let’s get started. All of the options are becoming limited due to popularity, so grab them while you can. As of publication Old Navy is offering an additional 30% off on all of these with the code HURRAY.

Floral Dress

Old Navy Floral Midi Dress

Floral Midi Dress, $47 (Plus 30% off with code HURRAY)

What’s better than a lightweight feminine dress with pockets? Pair this with these Reader Favorite Espadrille Wedges, a pair of white sneakers or flip flops at the beach

High-Waisted Cut off Shorts

Old Navy cut off jean shorts

High-Waisted Cut-Off Jean Shorts, $35 (plus 30% off with code HURRAY)

I never want to spend on shorts, they are always on my “save” list, so Old Navy is a go-to. This under $30 pair fit well, have a high waist and enough room in the leg for, well, your legs. Pair them with a linen botton down or simple white tee shirt

V-Neck Top
Old Navy Knot Front Top

Knot-Front V-Neck Top, $25 (plus 30% off with code HURRAY)

Just a pretty, inexpensive top to pair with summer bottoms when you want something light but better than a tee shirt. 

Old Navy Waist Defined t-shirt dress

Stock up on this waist-defining t-shirt dress available in an array of colors and sizes. It’s perfect for super hot, casual days with your sneakers our flat sandals.

Tie-Belt Midi Sheath Dress

Tie-Belt Midi Sheath Dress, $40 (plus 30% off with code HURRAY)

Another tee shirt dress option in a midi length with a tie-belt. I ordered this as an option for my flight to Greece at the end of the month. I think it will be comfy for the long flight and easy to manage in once we land and get to our hotel. 

Gingham Blouse

This sweet Gingham Blouse looks like something you would find at Draper James for four times the cost. That’s the beauty of Old Navy; you can find some wardrobe enhancers that feel special at great prices. This one went right into my cart to wear with white jeans or the jean shorts (above).

  1. Thanks Megan! I ordered the jogger set in a light blue and it somehow (somehow it arrived today yet I’m still missing things I ordered in Dec lol) – it’s sooo lovely and super soft! I just ordered a 2nd one in the oatmeal color, weekend dressing just got upgraded 😉

  2. Yes!! I own two of these longer sweatshirts; can’t beat them for wearing over leggings. And you are spot on when you suggest adding these items to your higher-quality pieces to make fresh combos that look like a million bucks without spending them! Love this article. So. Much. 🙂

  3. I love these ideas. Thank you. I’m going to order the wrap dress. I two work well for me this summer as I have several baby showers and bridal showers.
