Oh, Old Navy, You Can Do Better

This weekend the boy and the husband went up to Cleveland to visit family.  I stayed behind and enjoyed a little "me" time.  I went shopping.  I miss shopping.  Now I do almost all my shopping online.  It's so hard to go shopping with a two year old.  Anyway, I went to Old Navy.  Funny enough, I only bought items for my son, but I found some things that really disturbed me.

Let me start by saying that yes, I am a girl.  But I'm not very girly girl.  I would love to be a girly girl, but after nearly 37 years of life, I'm just not that girl.  In conclusion, I'm not a huge fan of the color pink.  It's just not very favorite.  My favorite color is red.  I'm finding, though, colors besides pink are not readily available in workout clothes.  Check out this wall of workout clothes at Old Navy:

I mean, you've got to be kidding me?!

Next came the girls athletic section:

Cheer?  Dance?  Can't we be encouraging girls to run and jump and kick and throw??

Old Navy, I'm disappointed.  You can do better.

I hear ya! I wish more running gear would come in greens, yellows and reds instead of always pink and turquoise blue. BORING more variety please!
