Blue Suede Shoes & $20 Maxi Dress Love!

Dupe for J.Crew Everly Pumps

These suede heels from Old Navy are my new favorite shoe. I bought the hot pink pair first – and after wearing it to a blog event with no stumbling or discomfort, I knew I needed the blue pair too. They remind me of the J.Crew Everly Suede pumps, but at a tenth of the price!

I love how the bright heels add a pop of colour to my outfit – and with ON sale prices – you can’t go wrong (I got mine for $24-$29). I’ve always found Old Navy shoes to be super comfortable – and these pumps are no exception. To see how versatile bright shoes are, check out how Noelle styles her J.Crew cobalt heels. By the way, if you love chambray shirts as much as I do – check out the sales racks in store – I’ve seen the Pin-dot Chambray Shirt I’m wearing above marked down to $9!

Dress: Old Navy, Cardigan: GAP, Bag: Minkoff, Necklace: H&M (want this version so badly!)

Another recent Old Navy find is this floral maxi dress that I picked up during their $20 dress sale. The blue and white print is so fresh for summer – and would look great with either cognac or gold accessories. Another bonus is that this dress is made of rayon rather than jersey – so it will not fade or pill with washing.

Have you found any great summer deals recently?

    Ha, so funny that you mentioned Noelle in this post because every time I see bright colored classic pumps I think of her. She is great at putting them in her outfits. I have had quite a few successes at Old Navy this summer after giving up on that store for a couple of years. The maxi dress you chose is gorgeous!Gina — On the Daily Express

      Noelle has really shown me how versatile cobalt pumps can be – and made me love them too 🙂

      Awww thanks Skylette! I think you'd look gorgeous in a maxi dress – but I know what you mean about feeling able to pull it off – you, Lilly and Noelle are so great at wearing flared skirts – but for some reason, I feel like I couldn't pull them off – but they look so ladylike when you guys wear them 😉

    I love the suede shoes! I was shocked when I saw them in old navy a few weeks ago. I think I even instagramed them. They are so pretty and seriously identical to the j. Crews. I recommend them too! You look beautiful in both outfits. I love that maxi! It would have been perfect for July 4th! And thank you for the mention, I wish I had seen this post sooner 🙂

      I'm pretty sure I saw them on your IG account – and when I saw the cobalt pair in store – I immediately thought of what a good investment your J.Crew ones have been 🙂 I've never been one for fancy shoes in the past – but I'm learning now that they can really elevate a simple outfit 🙂

    Old Navy has been having some great stuff lately, extra great haha. Not sure if ON carries half sizes online, but my local store only has full sizes in their shoes, so I never get lucky in the shoes department there. Love both of your outfits, so so pretty!
