Today we’re partnering with Old Navy to share our favorite ways to style Old Navy Tees as a base layer tee in the fall as well as the questions we ask ourselves when shopping for new articles of clothing. One thing we have to say about moving to Utah is that sometimes the weather here can be frigid and also we stay on the move with our new baby girl, so comfort is key for us. We love to wear what feels comfortable yet also looks good visually so that it can be dressed up if needed. Kaleb and I love to layer our tees here because the weather in the fall could mean snow or being as warm as 70 degrees.
When we go for hikes in the mountains or even a drive, we’re always sure to bring layers starting with a base layer tee. From the base layer tee, we move up from there with jackets, vests, etc. so that we can bundle up if we need to. With the elevation changes, sometimes it doesn’t matter the season here. If you are headed up in elevation, the temperature drops and so at that point it becomes essential to have a base layer tee and also back up layers. If we are hiking in the heat of the day or heading back down the mountain, that makes a great time to shed the layers to regulate our body temperatures.
One thing we’ve really enjoyed about the women’s department of Old Navy is the variety of cuts they have in the tees. I decided to go with this Swing Tee in Olive Stripe because I absolutely love that I can swing around in it, feel a little more dressed up, and also feel completely comfortable. And this may sound crazy, but having a baby takes a toll on your body, so I find that outfits that have a forgiving-yet-stylish cut are my absolute favorites! I’ve layered this with a chunky necklace and vest to keep my core warm. Kaleb is wearing the Garment-Dyed Heavy-Weight Crew-Neck Tee in Creme de la Creme with a jacket over the top to bring out the contrast in the fall-like colors and also to stay warm. When we are shopping, here are the questions we ask ourselves to help us decide if it is the right fit for our lifestyle:
1. Can I hike/ski/camp in this, but also dress it up if I need to?
2. Is it comfortable?
3. Does it look good on?
4. Can the baby tug on it and still maintain shape?
