Sophia’s Spring Wardrobe List: Part Two | Old Navy Haul

Today I’m going to be sharing with you our Old Navy Haul for Sophia’s Spring Wardrobe update and I’ll be giving you a complete list of my absolute favorite pieces that we purchased!

You’ve been seeing me post a LOT about the upcoming Spring/Summer seasons and it’s because I’m just too excited to ditch winter. Y’all, let me just tell you.. Living with toddlers is challenging on so many different levels- but I can’t stand layering during the winter. Fighting Sophia to put some stinkin’ pants on- or a shirt, jacket, gloves, hat, socks, boots, etc- over and over and over again, daily- and don’t even get me started on layers while potty training.. NO THANK YOU. The layering game struggle is REAL, y’all. Too real.

With that being said, dresses are a HUGE Spring and Summer must-have in the Mongelli household. After the serious winter wardrobe struggle, the complete ease of Spring and Summer wardrobes are welcomed with open arms!

Not only are dresses light, comfortable, and super cute, but you can dress them up or down with little-to-no effort! They’re just so dang easy! Needless to say, you’ll be seeing a lot of Sophia wearing dresses this season, and I’ll be highlighting a lot of our favorites for y’all during these next few months.

So, without further adou, let’s hop to it! Here is Sophia’s Spring Wardrobe List: Part Two:

(click the link above to see the full list-
I’m currently in the process of switching blog platforms so it’ll just show up in the future- bare with me friends!)

The really awesome thing about Old Navy is that they have some CRAZY good deals on toddler clothing- almost always! We got ALL OF THESE pieces above (plus some not pictured- yet) for around $130. And right now they have an EXTRA 15% off of EVERYTHING going on- no exclusions. That means those sale items are now priced even lower.. I’m not bitter. Haha!

That’s 8 DRESSES, 2 PAIRS of super cute shoes, and a bathing suit- that she really didn’t NEED- but obviously by now if you’re following along with me on social media- you know that my little mini-me is obessed with Minnie Mouse! That ruffled bathing suit was a MUST-HAVE in Sophia’s closet this summer and I couldn’t chance it selling out in her size later. I had to snatch it up quickly. Because come on, it’s so stinkin’ adorable and too good to pass up. (fits true to size- for those of you wondering!)

Lastly, I love all of the dresses that we purchased but my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE is definitely the Navy Elbow-Sleeve Swing Dress (it’s only $13 on sale from $18)! Not only is the print too adorable- but the material is soft and light-weight, it hits right above Sophia’s knees and it has a casual, relaxed fit which is wonderful because she can wear it all throughout the Spring and Summer seasons!

Enjoy the deals, ladies! Go forth & be fabulous!

Outfit Goals from Head to Toe // Summer 2018 Look to Copy Right Now

ACCESSORIES: Stella & Dot | Pave Chain Link Bracelet // Farren Pulley Bracelet, Gold (Also Available in Silver) // Anda Intention Bracelet, Strength (Courage Also Available)

OUTFIT: SIMILAR JACKET // TOP (Also HERE & HERE) // DENIM // SHOES

This outfit is a little piece of Spring/Summer heaven. So many bright pops of color with a trendy camo jacket is what Spring is all about. Gently transitioning into the full on color of summer with simple pops of color!

This doesn’t have to be with actual clothing pieces- if you’re more of a “neutral” wardrobe kinda gal and don’t have many bright clothes you can always incorporate those pops of color with your accessories instead!

Bright chandeliers are my top suggestion, and here are a few of my top picks for the season! Buy them now before they sell out, and thank me later!

Stella & Dot (Rebecca Minkoff Collaboration)| Pixie Chandeliers // If studs are more your style, check out THESE Pixie Studs!

Global luxury designer, entrepreneur and mother, Rebecca Minkoff has made her mark in the fashion industry with feminine, yet subtly edgy designs. In an exciting new collaboration, these special pieces are both delicate and powerful, bold and approachable.

Mixing glamorous sparkle with a chic waterfall. A feminine frame holds beautiful neutral and green tones with accents of vintage gold.

• Vintage Gold Finish
• 2 1/2” Length
• Titanium Posts
• Medium Weight

Stella & Dot | Kessie Drop Earrings

Hand beaded blush, orange, and red drops come together to make a statement in fabulous ombre. THESE EARRINGS ARE EVERYTHING!

• Shiny Gold Finish
• 2 ½”, Statement Weight
• Titanium Ear Posts

Stella & Dot | Riva Tassel Earrings (Also Available in Burgundy)

These gorgeous chandeliers are so cool because you can wear them as a statement chandelier OR you can remove the Tassel part and wear them as a soft stud!

• Shiny Gold Finish
• Titanium Posts
• 2 ¾” Length
• Medium Weight

Pops of color can turn even the most plain-Jane outfit into a fab spring/summer outfit in seconds with very little effort! How are you adding color into your wardrobe this season? Tell me in the comments!

Happy Sunday, Fashionistas!
