Cheryl Shops...Old Navy
You have to admire Old Navy--under new creative director Todd Oldham, they're desperately trying to shed the frumpy-campy image of yore in favor of a more fashion-driven focus, along the lines of Forever 21 and H&M. They're not quite there yet, but they're trying. I stopped by the Atlantic Center store today on my way home just to check things out, and their current campaign, "pattern play," definitely has a colorful, Palm Beachy vibe, just in time for spring break. I have a strapless maxi dress that I bought last year at Old Navy and this green style definitely caught my eye; unfortunately, it must've caught other people's eyes too, since it was sold out at the store and is nearly gone online, however it is available in a pink and a black print.

I didn't see a lot in the store, but online, there are a lot of great peasant tops and dresses, which I love to wear out at night when in tropical locales. This embroidered tunic will look great with a simple pair of sandals (like these) and a tan, and the embroidery is far more luxe than you'd expect from, well, Old Navy.

But some of my favorite pieces were the jewelry, many of which looked like Kenneth Jay Lane knockoffs. The enameled snake bracelet and free-form ring are awesome, but my favorite is the bamboo bangle--at $7.50 each, you can buy a bunch and stack 'em on your wrist like a glamazon.

Thankfully, my high school girlfriends and I are planning a little warm-weather getaway--and it's never too early to start shopping for a vacation, right?

I ended up there on Saturday and bought the chiffon tube is an amazing self-esteem booster. It falls close enough to the bod to not make one look preggers, but is loose enough to hide a multitude of sins! --- BOM
