Old Navy Gone Chic {Graphic Tees & More!)

Old Navy Picks: Graphic Tees
 

If you like the Parisian look– you have to check Old Navy out this weekend. I hadn’t been in a few months and I was wowed with all the styles they had. I was particularly impressed with their graphic tees–they are quite voguish. I have been looking for a “Holy Chic” tee for a while, but had yet to find a tee that was reasonably priced. Most of the ones I had found were either sleeveless or the over-sized ones. The graphic tees at Old Navy were perfect, just what I was looking for.

I grabbed a few of them since I can easily wear them with jeans, or dress them up with a blazer or with a skirt. I bought the J’adore, Holy Chic, and You, Me, Oui! tees. They are cheaper if you buy them online $10+. If you go to the store, the prices might vary (reg. $15).

Crossbody handbags are my go-to since they are so easy to wear. I am really loving this Old Navy crossbody in this gorgeous blue color. And I am always drawn to pink heels, even more when they are priced at only $30.

Seriously, I was really taken by how many styles Old Navy currently has that are quite Parisian. Lots of black & white chic clothing, some super comfy but mod sweatpants, and much more. Plus, I also bought a canvas tote with the silver wording, Holy Chic. I couldn’t find the tote online but they should have it at your local store. They also had another canvas tote with black writing, Merci.

REVIEW: VS Pointed-Toe Flats

VS Pointed-Toe Flats

Hello again! I am back from NYC and wishing I was still there. But I will tell you more about my girls getaway later. Today, I wanted to share with you my review on the nude flats I bought for the trip.

If you remember from my nude flats post, I told you I bought the Victoria’s Secret pointed-toe flats in Evening Blush. I wanted to share with you my thoughts on these shoes since I could not find any reviews on them when I first purchased them.

Pros: style (love the pointed-toe look), colors (love the evening blush nude), versatile (they go with everything!), comfy (I walked entire days & streets of NYC with very minimum foot pain); they look great with jeans & dresses/skirts.

Cons: Okay, so when I first opened the box, I was a bit disappointed. They had this strong smell, like paint or a cheap store. I was seriously thinking of taking them back. They felt a little cheaper than what I expected. They are bit pricey $68 but currently on sale for $48.

The style of the VS flat shoe is great, but they feel a little cheap; maybe a step above Forever 21 but sort of reminded me of the ballerina flats you can find at Target–except I couldn’t find pointed-toe ones in a nude color when I looked there. I ended up falling in love with this pair of VS pointed-toe flats since I did a lot of walking (and even some dancing) in them and my feet didn’t hurt as much. I loved walking and taking the subway, so I knew there would be some foot pain but I felt very minimum.

Would I buy another pair of VS pointed-toe flats again? You know I probably will…if they are on sale. I just can’t get past the actual quality vs. their original price. I’ve bought $60+ ballet flats before from other stores and the quality was much better.

Here is a picture of them (after walking all over NYC in them–sorry I meant to take a before photo) & the box they came in:

Nude Ballerina Flats for Traveling In Style

Nude Ballerina Flats

In a week, I’ll be in NYC! Last year, I went to NYC for my 30th birthday. This year, a few friends and I are making it a girl’s trip to the Big Apple. I am so excited since this will be our first girl’s trip, post college.

I know we will probably be doing a lot of walking since there is just so much to see and do in NYC. Whenever I am traveling, I am a big fan of wearing ballerina flats over tennis shoes. Sure, they might not be as comfy, but at least you look somewhat stylish.

When I first started wearing ballerina flats, I actually started off with the pointed-toe ones. They seem a bit more elegant to me than the rounded-toe ones. Although nowadays, I wear both kinds. But for my trip to NYC, I really wanted a nice pair of nude flats with a pointed-toe. I ended up buying the Victoria’s Secret pointed-toe ballerina flats in Evening Blush (the ones below the word “ballerina” on the image above; on sale $54). I haven’t worn them yet, but I’ll review them later on.

It’s so easy to shop for nude ballerina flats! They have become so popular that you can find them in any price range. You can find them anywhere from the super pricey Lanvin ($500+) to affordable Forever 21 ($13). I even made it a bit easier for you by starting a collection on Mavatar of Nude Ballerina Flats.
