Multiply Your Style with Old Navy Back to School Shopping!

Posted by on 06 August 2013 in Be Informed, Be Inspired, Good Cents, Things We Love | Comments Off on Multiply Your Style with Old Navy Back to School Shopping!

My oldest daughter Madi has hit that sweet spot where she gets excited about shopping for new clothes, but still thinks what I like is “cool”. (Do kids even say “cool” anymore?) So it was a lot of fun to take her up to the Old Navy Back to School Sale for a bit of a shopping treat. We browsed the sale racks, finding $10 dark wash jeans, adorable graphic tees and skirts for $8 each, and piles of leggings for only five bucks each. And okay, we found some things not on sale too, like the jean jacket she just had to have.

Then it was off to the dressing room. While Fiona tracked down her latest addition to her shoe collection…

…Madi tried on her outfits. I snapped a picture of each one so that we could post them using #MyONStyle on Instagram or Twitter for a chance to be featured on Old Navy’s Multiply Your Style gallery. Some stores even have a Back to School runway and jazzy chalkboard set up for the #MyONstyle picture opps through August 14th, Our store didn’t have it up yet, but Madi still rocked her outfits…and pictures!

This look was her favorite, and we ended up buying the entire ensemble with a blue jean jacket instead of white. There is something about polka dots and neon that makes me smile…and agree to let her wear it before school starts. Yep, it’s already in the laundry.

These outfits…we loved them too. Can you guess which one we took home with us? If you guessed the one where she is cheering exuberantly, you would be right. The sweatshirt is already making a regular appearance in her rotation; it matches almost everything!

It was a bona fide shopping success. We found clothes she liked with prices I liked and shoes that Fiona liked. Plus, in a very random turn of events, our cashier ended up being the “other” Rachel Hammond who lives in my town. How strange is that?

The only thing that could have made it better is if they were able to pose as mannequins in the front display…oh wait, we did that too. I couldn’t stop laughing at how Madi tried to smile like the mannequins too. Fiona just looks…unusual, but hey, she thought she was cool.

There will be a day where shopping with my girls will be a bit more painful, but for now, I will thoroughly enjoy the thrill of finding awesome clothes together, throwing in a roll of giant Smarties, and walking out to the car hand in hand.
