Extended Style Notes

Old Navy Blanket Shawl – One Size

What I loved…

  • Not too long –  I fell in love with blanket shawls last year when they got popular, but had difficulty finding one that was not too oversized. I wanted the laid back casual look yet did not want to be look weighed down by all that fabric. This blanket shawl I found at Old Navy is great for petites because it’s just the right length (Center back = 24’’).
  • Pattern  -  I think the pattern on this blanket shawl is so cool. It reminds me of a Pendleton blanket.

What could be better…

  • Prone to pilling (aka fuzz balls) - I can tell already that I will have to careful when I wear the blanket shawl because it seems fuzz-ball prone. Since it I got in on sale for $16, I was willing to overlook this flaw.

 

Garment measurements:

Center back = 24’’

 

Gap Leggings - Size S

What I loved…

  • Just the right length - Even though these leggings aren’t a petite size, the length of these leggings is actually perfect and I didn't have to "fake hem" them by rolling under the excess fabric. (Inseam = 27.25’’)
  • Side zippers -  I love that these leggings have zippers at the sides of the leg openings. It makes them so much easier to put on and take off.

What could be better...

  • Higher rise - I like to have my leggings to sit slightly below my natural waist so I don’t have to worry about them sliding down during the day. I would love them to be slightly higher rise about 10’’. (Actual rise = 9.5’’)

 

Garment measurements:

Waist = 28’’

Front rise = 9.5’’

Inseam = 27.25’’
