Old Navy Kinda Nailed It

I'm not normally a shopper at Old Navy anymore. I outgrew that when I was about 18 and haven't looked back since, however, remembering how awesome Patriot-Heavy 4th of July wear was, I decided to bop in and check out what's up. I was pleasantly surprised. Old Navy nailed it for Summer 2015. ...more
