Visible Monday: The 5-Dollar Old Navy Dress


Sometimes patiently scouring the clearance racks really pays off!  I was at Old Navy with my daughter on Saturday, and I found a simple blue dress for 5 dollars and some-odd cents.  It's sleeveless, but I knew it would fine with a cardigan.

So naturally I bought it, and wore it to church today with the Chinese Laundry hat I got at Ross Dress for Less for around 10 bucks at Easter earlier this year.

This picture above was taken on my back deck, which is being invaded by a gorgeous red maple tree.  Sadly, these leaves will be gone all too soon.


This dress is made of soft, comfy material.  I wore in with a black tank underneath, and a black Merona cardigan I got at Target a couple of months ago.

I REALLY need to get a full-length mirror... but just to let you know, the dress falls just below my knees.


A closer look.  As you can see, the cardigan has some pretty detailing.  I think I got the necklace at Cato a while back.


I'll leave you with a parting shot of our maple-gloried back deck.  It's been a breathtakingly gorgeous autumn, and I'll be sad to see these leaves go!

You look fabulous...this is such a great top to bottom look. I love the hat and the dress is such a great fit and color or you! Great job! I also am so jealous of your gorgeous leaves...ours will turn for a short time right at Thanksgiving and quickly fall.

You look beautiful in this outfit. The hat is wonderful on you and frames your lovely face prefectly.
Some outfits are just meant to be and this one was meant for you!

Love the vibrant blue of the sweater and the hat worn a la 80's(on the back of the head). Your hair is perfect for that look. The tree is so pretty, too. Enjoy your week, Lovely One!!
