Petite Fashion Challenge #6: 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.”

So, TBH, I wasn’t sure I was going to participate in this challenge which is kind of ironic since given the choice, I would probably just wear jeans and a t-shirt everyday. I had two of my own challenges with this post. One, posting something I haven’t already done, and two, finding time to do it. But I finally came up with something AND found the time, miraculously. It’s pretty rocker-chic and probably not everyone’s style, but I thought it would be fun and would probably be a bit different from what the other petite ladies are doing. I apologize for the hair. Hair has finally grown out (and not well, I might add) from my last haircut debacle, and now it needs a trim and re-shaping. I’m also all sorts of crooked in these photos– jacket, belt, scarf, and t-shirt:

 American Eagle Deep-V Favorite T / Jacob Leather Bomber Jacket / Paige Premium Denim Verdugo Jeggings / Forever 21 Tie Knot Necklace / Tolani Midnight Rose Scarf / D&G Suede Booties / Le Chateau Belt
 
OK, I just realized it’s not really much different from my EOTD from last week. LOL. But how can you go wrong with a leather jacket and a great pair of heels?

I can’t wait to see what the other petite ladies have come up with!

    Very bad-ass! Looks great on you!

    I was worried about this PFC too because ALL I wear is jeans in my blog posts. Had a hard time coming up with something at least a little bit different.

    Love your jeggings and the cut of those booties!! They look to be the perfect height and show just the right amount of ankle/foot to elongate rather than truncate. Totally want a pair for myself now…

    I think you did the rockstar style so well on this challenge!

    Only a few of us did the whole ROCKER/EDGY thing, so I’m glad that’s how you did it!

    Nothing wrong with a nice, slouchy scarf either! Totally bad ass, and loving the low rise on those booties too.

    Dude, rock on! Your hair totally works with this outfit! That scarf has pretty jewel tones yet still says “don’t mess with me” 😀 I would totally rock this look to a show or on the back of a Harley. Parked Harley. Awesome! (Are we related? You have my family ‘beauty mark’ near your right eye. True, but kidding)

    I STILL poke into marshalls & tjx with the hopes that I’ll score some cute small shoes like your find but …never any luck. I’m not going to go anymore. The selections around my local stores are mucho gross. Love these booties paired with your leather jacket and a voluminous scarf…very Cher!
