Loving Life after 50

Office to Beach in Old Navy Linen Pants

On Sunday I decided I needed to go shopping at Old Navy, yea I know I needed to…. Well apparently its been to long because i went to my fav Old Navy and it was gone, seriously, closed up, boarded up and moved to a location others may like but for me  PAIN IN THE A…  They moved from Silvercity location ( real easy to get to) the the Trainyards, well the rest of Ottawa may like the Trainyards but I HATE IT, worst place ever for traffic so sadly that is most likely my last trip there, online is preferably to the traffic I faced.  Why do stores do that, you have a great location, perfect parking and just because other stores are there you need to move???  So I apologize in advance to the Old Navy Location that will no longer receive my money but on line will prove way more convenient then braving that traffic ( and I point out the Sunday traffic was just as bad as a week day).  
butttttt I made the most of my trip few dresses, a jumper, new chambray shirt, bathing suits and these amazing linen pants. ( and may I add wrinkle free linen pants, they looked as great at the end of the day as they did at the beginning)
Paired with neon yellow Tank ( surprise) a Navy Blazer and a pair of wedges ( Payless) totally office appropriate
 ( Plus my Yosa necklace and a Kate Spade Bag)

    First off….I absolutely love your Canada Day wreath!!! The outfit as a whole, I don't think I'd consider. Unless, I can change the pants. I don't like the "straight leg" pants. I prefer something a little more tapered! But, I do love the top and blazer, with the yellow sneaks!!!

  • Love the outfit, but especially love the braid 🙂 you look great!

  • Lena B, Actually

    Sounds like a great haul at Old Navy… sucks they moved on ya! Happy Canada Day! Love the wreath!

  • Got to love linen pant that don't wrinkle. That sucks they move the Old Navy store.

  • Thank you, it was very comfy ( and wrinkle free)

  • aren't they, especially when they are wrinkle free

  • Thanks, I usually do not go with a full or straight but these were very comfortable. Wreath is very easy

  • thanks for the inspiration, I never would have tried the braid but I love it

  • yea moved to trainyards the awful, heaviest congested area in Ottawa, guess I will head across town to Bayshore. I did get a great haul though

  • I am a tad bit bitter over the move but I will get over it. LOL

  • Thanks, great price and really comfy

  • Thanks Linda, I love clothes and colour

    Old Navy moved to the Trainyards? Dang it, I want it where it was! Love your picks, Linda. You look adorable.

  • I drove to silvercity and it was gone…. I hate the trainyards, traffic is awful. Thanks.
