LIY Team Try-On // Old Navy: Spring Edition

May 22, 2020


Erin Schrader

One thing that never gets old? Shopping at Old Navy. Just ask the LIY Team. We took it upon ourselves to search through all the goodness one of our favorite retailers has to offer and bring you the best of the bunch. It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it. And with new spring arrivals this good [and sales that make your heart race] we couldn’t hit “Add to Cart” quick enough. Whether you’re working from home these days or overdressing for the grocery store like me, we found a little something for everyone– whatever your new “normal” might be. Ready, set, shop! ps. If you can’t get enough of us, you’ll find more LIY Team Try-Ons here.


Soft Utility Jacket [true to size, wearing in small in amelia rose] // Tank [size down if in between] // High Waist White Jeans [size down if in between] // Similar Wedges [true to size] // Sole Society Crossbody

The second I spotted this utility jacket I knew I wanted to try it. I’m all about layering in the spring [and fall] and knew that I would most likely get a lot of use out of this. It’s perfect – soft, not too heavy and I love the rose color to switch it up from my regular utility jacket color scheme. Expect to see this one on repeat.

Linen-Blend Shorts [true to size, wearing in small in sunflower gold] // Relaxed Chambray Top [true to size, wearing in small] // Messenger Bag // Bag Strap // Tory Burch Miller Sandals [size up .5, wearing in sand patent] 

Shorts season is upon us and this linen-blend option is here for it. While they do wrinkle some, they are nice and lightweight and can be dressed up or down. The best part: the price. The hardest part? Choosing which color to go with. Good luck sis, good luck.

Water-Resistant Hooded Jacket [true to size, wearing in small] // Pleated Back Swing Tank [true to size, wearing in small in fresh water] // High Waisted Zip Elevate 7/8 Leggings [true to size, wearing in small] // Vintage Havana Sneakers [size up one]

Watch out world, Old Navy activewear coming through. I wasn’t confident if I would like these athleisure pieces enough when I ordered [I’ve become a self-proclaimed Athleta snob] but dang, I was pleasantly surprised. This jacket is so fun with the gold hardware details and I love that it’s water-resistant! Additionally, these leggings are so freaking cute in person [I love the ribbed detail and side zipper pockets] and felt great on. If you’re looking for the look of Athleta but don’t want to pay the price, this is a great place to start.


Slub Scoop Neck Tee [TTS, wearing in XS] // French Terry Utility Joggers [TTS, wearing in XS] // Snakeskin Sneakers [TTS]

Well, this is my personal Quarantine Uniform — tee, joggers and sneakers! This tee is a nice and breathable weight for the warmer months ahead and I like the scoop neck to mix it up from the usual vee. These joggers are super comfortable and I feel great to wear them around the house, or just throw on a jacket to take a walk or run an errand.

Soft Utility Jacket [TTS, wearing in Panther XS] // Slub Scoop Neck Tee [TTS, wearing in XS] // Distressed Super Skinny Ankle Jeans [Size Up if In Between, wearing in 2 Petite] // Snakeskin Sneakers [TTS]

Keeping it simple with this outfit, which is perfect for our simple and slower schedule these days! White tee, skinny jeans, and add a jacket and sneakers when I step out of the house! This jacket is lightweight and casual. I like that it comes in this casual black color for something a little different than the usual army green utility jacket. And these distressed skinny jeans are perfect for all my days at home! They are very skinny around the ankle, which I know many of you love, but you may want to size up if in between!


Sweater Tank [Size down one, wearing in XS Petite for 5’2”] // AE Artist Crop Jeans [Size up one, wearing in 4 Regular] // Vionic Sandals [True to size]

What’s NOT to love about a Sweater Tank in the Summer! This color is even prettier in person!! Perfect for Summer date nights, layered under a cardigan or under a favorite denim jacket! It’s also ridiculously soft, not itchy or see through! It’s a match made in heaven!

Shirttail Hem Tank [True to size, wearing in XS] // High Waisted Compression Leggings [Size up one] // Adidas Sneakers [Size down one]

My Summer uniform!! My Summer wardrobe looks drastically different from my Fall – Spring. With kids home, we are outside A LOT; taking walks, playing, going to the pool, running errands and comfort is key! This is the first time I’ve tried Old Navy compression leggings and I was pleasantly surprised! Great for working out or running errands and the compression is so good on these leggings!

Shawl Cardigan [True to size, wearing in XS Petite] // Similar Tank // Shorts [size down if in between]  // Sneakers [size down one]

Something I ALWAYS struggle with… a cardigan that’s the perfect length for my petite frame and pear shape. Long cardigans always make me look wider behind and finding a cropped cardigan isn’t easy! When I saw this one I had to try it and it’s perfect! The length, fit and feel are so good and it will be perfect for cooler Summer nights, Fall and Spring! 


Linen-Blend Cami Jumpsuit for Women [TTS, wearing in size XS]

This jumpsuit is giving me Fourth of July vibes! I love the material of this little get up, it is comfortable to wear all day but also mega stylish! Definitely a win for me!

EveryWear Slub-Knit Crew-Neck Tee for Women [TTS, wearing in size XS] // Breathe ON Utility-Pocket Shorts for Women [TTS, wearing in size XS]

Say hello to one of my WFH go-to’s! Number one thing I love about these shorts? THE LENGTH! I love wearing lounge shorts but most of the time they are too short or look too much like pajamas to wear out of the house! These shorts solved all of my problems! They are polished enough to go outside and long enough to feel comfortable and covered! I paired them with this tee which is currently under $7 in other colors!


Linen Blend Jersey Halter Coverup Dress  [true to size, wearing medium] // Similar Dresses // Sandals [size up .5]

If you’re looking for a longer length cover up, this is a great option! It’s too sheer to wear as a dress, but over a swimsuit it’s perfect! I love the halter neckline and nice lightweight material!

French Terry V-Neck Baja Stripe Pullover Hoodie [true to size, I sized up one for the bump to a large] // Sandals [size up .5] 

I’m officially in love with this striped hoodie! It’s the perfect weight for cool summer evenings with shorts or for simply lounging around the house! I size up one to a large for the bump, but probably could have stuck to my normal medium!

Linen Blend Utility Zip Jacket [true to size, wearing medium] // Maternity Tank Top [true to size, wearing medium] // Maternity Shorts [true to size, wearing 8] // Sandals [size up .5]

Plan on seeing me wear this linen jacket over and over [and over] this Summer and Fall! It’s great! Plus it has an adjustable cinched waistband so you can tweak the fit a bit!


Square-Neck Cami [TTS, wearing medium] // Distressed Boyfriend Jeans [TTS, wearing 8] // Strapless Bra //  Sandals [size up .5] 

Meet my new boyfriend… jeans. 😉 After wearing this style on repeat this spring, I’m ready to say sayonara to skinny jeans forever. They’re cute, comfortable, and not too restrictive! Pair them with a flowy, lightweight tank and you’re set. See ya never, skinnies.

Crew-Neck Sweatshirt [size up if in between, wearing medium] // StretchTech Joggers [TTS, wearing medium] // Similar Sneakers [TTS]

If you don’t already own one of these crew-necks, what in the world are you waiting for?! I own more than I would care to admit, but they’re a great wardrobe staple, super comfy, and come in a ton of different colors.


Distressed Denim Jacket [TTS, wearing in L] // Luxe V-Neck Tee [TTS, wearing in M] // Jeans [TTS, wearing in 10] // Sandals

I finally took the plunge on this distressed denim jacket so many of you have purchased! I love the lighter wash since my other denim jacket is dark and hard to pair with anything dark colored or most denims. I haven’t washed it yet, and this baby is already so soft! Calling this one a win!

For your Pinning pleasure…
