I didn't get around to posting my outfit from Christmas Day in a timely manner so here it is 2 weeks later! I was attempting to get into the holiday spirit by wearing red and accessorizing with silver tones. The bf and I are kinda matching, no? Please ignore the fuzzy socks as my feet were cold that evening. =)

Moving on to details about my shopping trip to the local Old Navy. I have seen numerous petite bloggers either reviewing or mentioning the chambray from ON so I have been tempted to stop by there ever since. When I was conveniently in the area for dinner the other night, I couldn't resist going in to try on a few items.buy) -- Old Navy Rock Star jeggings in russet brown - sz 0 (buy)
I thought the chambray fit very well compared to the unflattering one from Coldwater Creek in this post. I liked the darker shade of blue but the one-sided pocket was a little odd to me. The jeggings were definitely tight but I managed to get into them after a few wiggles and jumps. I loved the russet brown color and the fact that they don't need to be hemmed but wasn't thrilled about the obvious whiskering at the crotch area and knees. Ping from All About Fashion Stuff reviewed these recently too and had the same complaint about the jeggings...read her post here. See the same color on Jean from Extra Petite here.
I only brought in the jeggings to try on so I just used them with the rest of my outfits. I apologize in advance if they appear repetitive. The photos below were with a sz 2 though and you can see even more bunching.
I thought the pattern of this button down was fun and it fit almost perfectly. I could see myself layering this under sweaters or dressing it up with a girly skirt and some jewelry.
Old Navy western chambray - sz XS (buy)
The buttons on the western chambray were actually snap buttons but I really liked the color and it felt warmer than the previous one I tried on. I ended up buying both chambrays to ponder about further, the camper shirt, and the pullover. I didn't get the jeggings since the fit wasn't great and they were regular price at $34.95. Everything else was on sale minus the dark chambray shirt so I might end up returning it.
Any thoughts on my purchases? Which chambray do you prefer?
