Made in the shade

When palm prints first emerged, all I could think of was “Golden Girls”. Don’t get me wrong–I love me some Sophia, Dorothy, Rose and Blanch! But I couldn’t help but picture old ladies sipping Mai Tais on a lanai in the retirement capital of the world. But, as most trends do, it grew on me. So when I saw that Old Navy had gotten in on the palm print fun, I knew I had to check it out for myself.

Y’all. When I say Old Navy had lots of options, I mean A TON! I could have easily left with everything I tried on because (A) It was so darn cute and (B) It was so stinkin’ affordable! Not only does Old Navy always get the price right, but right now everything is an additional 30% off (40% if you are an Old Navy cardholder!).

The one-shoulder white top is linen as are the palm print shorts–a super cool and comfy combo. The palm print sleeveless top on the right has a cute keyhole back and a flattering drape. The shorts are their semi-fitted 3.5″ rolled up white jean shorts, which have great stretch to them. All run pretty true to size and I’m wearing an XS in the tops and a size 2 in the bottoms. These outfits run between $30-$36 with the current 30% off promotion.

In this cute navy and green palm print, I tried on a short dress with a tassel-tie neckline ($21 with discount) and a top in the same cutout sleeveless style as above ($17.50 with discount).  I paired the top with white Rockstar jeggings, which have this amazing lycra waistband that makes them super comfy and only $24.50 with the 30% off discount. I’m wearing an XS in the top and the dress and a size 4 in the jeans (size up in these!).

I also tried on this cute midi dress in a palm print ($21 with discount), which I loved paired with or without this great stretchy jean jacket ($26 with discount). I’m wearing an XS in both, so I think they are true to size.

And lastly, check out this adorable swim coverup in black and green. It has this precious pom pom trim and a tie to cinch in your waist. I would size up in this though (I’m wearing a small) in order to get a bit more length. The coverup is $19 with the 30% off promotion and just too great to pass up, don’t you agree? I mean, the only thing missing here is a fruity drink in my hand!
