I love a good challenge — especially when it’s a fashion one! This outfit is a response to this month’s Petite Fashion Challenge hosted by Jess of StylePint. Here are the details of the challenge:
Challenge: “Dress Up Your Basics”
Jeans and a tee is a classic
outfit starter. Depending on what you layer over this basic pairing, you
can change style and feel of the entire look. This is your chance to
show your personality and your creativity.
For this challenge,
start off with a jeans and tee basic look (it can be any style or color)
and dress it up to show off your personal style with accessories,
jewelry, and whatever you’d like to add.

I love a casual t-shirt and jeans look for its inherent comfort, but sometimes I feel that it’s a little lacking in polish and creativity for me. Since I still wanted to keep the look simple today, I just added a basic faux leather jacket and some matching heels. In my mind, there’s nothing that a leather jacket can’t make instantly cool. And high heels always pull a look together like nothing else (who doesn’t want longer legs?). These Aldo Whitsey pumps are actually one of the most comfortable shoes I own (I could walk for miles, seriously), so there was no questioning the fact that they had to be included in this little ensemble.
I kinda lucked out when picking this t-shirt for the challenge as it already had some built-in embellishments at the neckline. If that weren’t the case though, a large statement necklace also does the trick nicely (I actually have my eyes on this one and may or may not have placed an order online for it already… 🙂 Accessories are key, after all, to making a basic outfit a stylish one!
