Petite Fashion Challenge #5 is hosted this month by Cynthia of Shorty-Stories! Please be sure to visit her blog to see all the entries by fellow petites.
Create a sophisticated work appropriate look that has no more than one
dark piece (it can be a skirt, pants, a blazer, sweater etc…)
excluding shoes, accessories and hosiery.
I actually created my weekly Color Brigade feature for this very reason — to add more color to my wardrobe! And even though I already posted a look for today’s Color Brigade feature, here’s an extra outfit that I think fits the bill for a brightened wardrobe. Enjoy!
Gap Outlet Ruffle Blouse – 0
J. Crew Double Serge Pencil Skirt – 00P
Forever 21 Leopard Print Belt – S (cut short)
Forever 21 Tights
Forever 21 Chic Leatherette Stilettos in Tan – 5
Necklace (really old)
Louis Vuitton Ellipse PM Purse (gifted)
I love my colored tights, but I decided to keep it conservative for this challenge entry and wear basic black tights instead. I think we all know how much love this J. Crew placket cardigan has been getting, so of course it had to make an appearance for the challenge. And how could I forget about my other most recent J. Crew investment? The skirt was a no-brainer for me as one of the main reasons I bought it was because of the gorgeous color! The leopard-print belt adds a bit of fun to the outfit without going over the top, and the shoes helped finish out the gold-toned theme of the outfit.
I hope you guys enjoyed this outfit and hopefully it will provide some ideas on how a bright outfit can still indeed be very work appropriate! ^_^
