Petite Fashion Challenge #6

It's time again for another Petite Fashion Challenge!

This times challenge is hosted by Jess from Stylepint. If you haven't checked out her blog (which if you're reading this and part of the petite community, you probably have!) head over and see how adorable she is.

The 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.
Here's my look!

Outfit Details:
Jeans: Express, 00 Short
White Shirt (ok not a t-shirt but you'll read why below): Old Target, XS
Cardigan: Target, XS
Belt: Ann Klein, XS
Shoes: Jones New York, 5

I wanted to keep this outfit true to the challenge but I thought it would be more realistic to show something I would actually wear...and since most of my life is spent at work, this is what you get! Hence the white button-up and not a white t-shirt, although that would have been an easy substitute. Subsequently, this is what I actually wore today as I am on a business trip and had a casual meeting scheduled earlier this afternoon. As a side note; sorry for the incredibly horrible pictures. I was A) without my tripod, B) in a huge hurry snapping these trying to hit the road and C) in my roommates room since she has the only floor length mirror in the house.

Can't wait to see what everyone else came up with!

You have a gorgeous figure! The jeans and pointed shoes elongate your torso beautifully, and I just love that cardigan!

Agree with everyone else the cardigan! That print is great and the colors are really versatile.

The color and print of the cardigan is lovely! I also love how the shoes match too.

I love pairing a plain tee with a colorful/printed cardi too. You look great!

I just love that cardi - can't believe it's from target! This is a perfect go to outfit.

From the belt to the shoes, I love how you emphasized your shape in this outfit! It's a great go-to work outfit! =)

Your jeans look so formal! They don't look casual at all.

At first I thought that was a jacket, but it's a cardi! Cool! I like that pattern. I also like it belted.
