Fashion Sensory - Old Navy

One of my favorite Twin Talk series was the spring/fall fashion posts.  Fellow twin moms and I would style head-to-toe outfits and create fashion boards so busy moms could easily shop great looks without leaving the house.  The only catch?  Everything had to be from the same store - because who wants to pay four different shipping fees for one outfit?  (No one!)

As most of you know, Jude started occupational therapy several months ago for sensory processing disorder.  We recently learned our insurance is no longer covering his visits.  We appealed and his therapy center/pediatrician fought his case but they're sticking with their decision.  Because of this, I'm starting a new fashion series on this blog with fun outfits for both women and kids!

Full disclosure - every outfit below contains an affiliated link(s), which means we are paid a small commission for each purchase made.  This is my personal "fundraiser" to help pay for Jude's therapy, while also sharing my favorite finds with my favorite people!  As if you needed another reason to shop, you now know you're shopping for a great cause.  :)

For now, I plan to stick with the rules of Twin Talk - everything below came from the same store!  I'm also going to post my top three favorite finds that are all ON SALE.  These pieces will not necessarily be from the same store but they will ALL be on sale (hooray)!!

Happy shopping!

I chose Old Navy this week for one reason.  These gladiator sandals:

I purchased them last month and wear them constantly.  They're incredibly comfortable and look cute with dresses, shorts, and cuffed jeans (they only come in whole sizes and I sized down).

The boho look is everywhere right now.  Cold shoulder/off-the-shoulder tops, flowy dresses, fringe, and (get ready) the gaucho jeans are back in a big way.  It's a great style for summer because everything is loose and breezy, making it a mom's dream.

For the first three looks, I chose two rompers and an off-the-shoulder top/shorts - all to pair with the sandals above.  Rompers can be tricky - if they're too short or show too much skin, I'm not comfortable.  But if they have the right coverage and aren't too snug, I consider them effortless and perfect for summer!

I'm currently obsessed with flowy dresses.  Gone are the days where I enjoy sucking in my stomach for 3+ hours.  Light chambray/denim is a great piece to add to your wardrobe - I went back and forth between the two dresses below before deciding to feature both.  If you love a swing dress, the one on the left is great.  However, if you love the relaxed look but still want to show off your waist (good for you!), the one on the right is amazing.  Hi-lo dresses are also on trend this season and great for date night or a night out with friends.  Add a pendant necklace, stacked bracelets and you're set!  All three of these looks would pair nicely with the gladiator sandals and since they're all from Old Navy you're looking at fun fashion for amazing prices.  

(Also, please disregard the two ladies completely judging one another.  Can't we all get along?)

If you hear boho and think "oh no," try a preppier look.  I love Old Navy's pixie pants - they're fitted so you can pair them with a loose top like the button-back plaid and it still shows off your shape!  Add a thin knit cardigan if you don't live in Texas.  :)

Can't forget the kids!  If you know me at all, I'm a sucker for coordination so of course I made sure these pieces would look good with one another and with mom above.  :)

I hope you found something you love!  If there are any specific stores you'd like me to feature, please let me know!

Where has this been all my life?! I need you to do this always. I hate shopping so so so much. And not to make more work for you or anything, but I also need you to feature kids (not just toddler). You don't even have to do kid boys. Just girls and I'm happy. ;)

I'm so excited about this! I've always loved your style! Would love to see a Madewell post!
Also, so sorry to hear about insurance! One of my boys has SPD - I know all about its importance! We're literally driving home from Disneyland early because it was just wayyyyyy too much for him :(
