I die! LOL.

I’m featured on a relatively new style website called StyledOn.com. By it’s own description:

I discovered StyledOn a few weeks ago. I have yet to put in a lot of time “socializing” on the website, but I have uploaded some photos from this blog and tagged some of them. It’s a really fun way to find inspiration even though the community isn’t all that large yet. You can “follow” other members that you find inspiring and leave comments and compliments. It’s also not limited to just fashion. It also has sections for decor and culture.

Being featured on this site is both cool, flattering, and a little embarrassing all at the same time.

Please check it out and let me know what you think!

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:

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!

It’s a Wrap

The thing about living in D.C. is that there is virtually *no* spring weather. It somehow goes from cold to hot and humid in no time flat. Before you know it, you’ve missed spring altogether and the spring jackets, cover-ups, and light scarves haven’t seen any daylight. I’m determined not to miss it this year even though, so far, the temperature has been very “spring-like” but still feels very cool due to the wind.
