As discussed on The Mothership and on Beach Chic Style, Old Navy's lightweight patterned shirts bear a striking resemblance to a couple of Liberty print offerings from J Crew.
J Crew Liberty shirt in Margaret Ann vs. ON's lightweight patterned shirt in multi ditsy
Size M - The fabric is lightweight, good for layering but it doesn't feel paper thin.
It's a great pattern with lots of colors to pull out and highlight. This is a good one for pencil skirt lovers. Would also look good w/the cafe capris in wool, brilliant blue. I like the longer shirttail hem, which is good for tying at the waist.
A big thumbs up. I am not a Liberty expert so I didn't have any particular feelings of comparison between that and the ON top. I liked the comfort and feel of the ON fabric. I like florals but don't really like them on me. I did in this case and esp at this price point.
J Crew Liberty shirt in Leo Scarlet (review) vs. ON's lightweight patterned shirt in sea blue floral. The Liberty print has a darker base than the Old Navy top. The ON top is looking a little Wal-Mart-ish in this pic, but trust me...it's much cuter irl.
Size M - I have straight hips even though they don't photograph as such. Anyway, I didn't have an issue w/the bottom of the shirt being too wide as described on The Mothership. The size M is a little big in some places, but it fits properly in the most important places like my chest & stomach. I didn't even bother trying a S, which would likely gape at the chest.
It's cute with the button-front stretch cardi in off-white. I prefer XS in those cardis.
Cute with yellow or navy shorts for summer. A cooler summer day, of course, w/those long sleeves.
My Loft modern straight jeans rock! (8P)
These blouses were on promo in-store for $15 on Sat, 2/2. Yes, that price is quite easy to sway a shopper to checkout. However, before I paid attention to the original retail or learned they were on promo, I was thinking that $29.94 + 25% off would be a good deal. I figured I'd bring the cost/wear down quickly. And at $15 the cost/wear will come down very fast. I think Old Navy changes their in-store promo prices on Wed or Thur, so you might still have time catch it. Of course it could still be on promo thru next weekend.
20% off online with GAMEDAY thru 2/4. Of course another 30% off will probably roll around soon.
I hope your week gets off to a great start!
