Day 10 — Petite in Pink

Today was day 10 of the Color Rotation Challenge — pink instead of red because I messed up yesterday — but also the day of my first Petite Fashion Challenge. Cheers!

I love the Petite Blogger community, because they’re all extremely stylish women who are as tall as or even shorter than me. I’ve struggled with being 4’11” for a while, but these ladies rock it, and they all inspire me.

The challenge was to “dress up your jeans and tee.” Easy enough. Started with a basic Old Navy T — hot pink, XS — and pair of my favorite Old Navy skinny jeans. I have always been totally in love with Old Navy’s t-shirts, because they’re cheap and comfortable and come in a ton of colors. I’m a little concerned about how this one looks super tight in the chest area, but I just bought it and they always stretch, so it should be okay.

For the dressed-up version, I added my other wardrobe staple: my black Target cardigan. I feel like I cheated at this challenge because it’s really my basic uniform, as a college kid: jeans, t-shirt, cardigan. I went a little out-of-habit by wearing a scarf instead of a necklace, so that’s a good thing, and I finished it off with my favorite black boots.

Sorry I’m kind of late to the challenge — I ended up traveling home for spring break today and didn’t have WiFi access! Better late than never. If you’re new, checking out my blog through the challenge, hope you stick around! It’s a good time.

Also, a heads-up to my Color Rotation friends: Because I am home on spring break and have a limited wardrobe, I might be mixing up the rotation. If I have to dress nice and I only have a casual yellow outfit, I might swap those days. Bear with me! The important thing will be, I will still wear a different color every day, which is the real thing I’m getting out of this challenge. I’m breaking out of my black-white-gray-blue standard.

    A pink T is a great way to make a basic a little more fun! I like how you dressed it up 🙂

      Thanks! I liked your outfit, too — I’ve never been able to rock big, long necklaces like that, but it looks great on you!

    I liked how you tied your scarf, it looks a lot more interesting than just wrapping it the classic way. Glad to hear you are mixing up colors in your wardrobe! You should enter into Kileens ( color brigade!

      Thanks! My roommate taught me that way of tying scarves, it’s super easy but looks really cool. I’m planning to do a step-by-step post on it at some point — I’ll try to make it sometime in the next few days for you 🙂
      I have seen the color brigade and I think it looks like fun, but I don’t know if I’m ready for that yet! I’m way too attached to my neutrals for now. I’ll work up to it.

    The scarf really helps to make the outfit more interesting! Great job! 😉

    I love your outfit! Your basic uniform is definitely more fashionable than me and the rest of my school during college days!

      Thank you! I feel like it’s boring day after day, but it far beats jeans and a hoodie (my high school uniform!). I’m learning.

      Thanks! I love argyle socks — when they were $1 a pair at Target a few months ago, I bought them in every color 🙂 Even if I’m just wearing them under boots, they make me feel cool!
