A Bit A Mixin'

 If you have been to Old Navy (or online) any time recently you may have come away with a wish list (or shopping bag) full of things you loved. I have been dying over their new arrivals and there is a SALE going on for an extra 20% off or extra 30% if you use your Old Navy card (ON your welcome...)
 I went shopping last weekend and they didn't quite have all of the fun new stuff from online in the store I visited (which probably was a good thing), but I did come away with some fun things (and a couple of $8 tops including this one.  LOVE that!!)
 Funny thing however is that after my shopping trip our family went out to dinner and I walked in and saw this top on someone right away.  So apparently it is going to be one I see around a lot so I decided to make it a bit more interesting.

I layered this fun gingham (also from Old Navy and they have about 3 more I would love) underneath it.  True not way practical for a day you are going to be OUT in the hotness, but I wore it all day inside and thought it was great (until I had to unexpectedly stay for an entire soccer practice when my boys' ride home didn't show up...definitely wasn't dressed for that.  Luckily today was a lot cooler than it has been lately.  Yesterday was 103!!).  It would also be perfect for an evening out.

I love your pattern mixing here SOOOO much. This is my favorite outfit of yours ever! I love the red white and blue colors and the pattern mixing!

    1. Ha ha, then I probably should tell you that the boys had just gotten these pants dirty like minutes before the shoot. They aren't even white, they are stone and they still help me gett them all sorts of dirty :)
