Petite Fashion Challenge 15 - Chic Pin-spiration

I missed out on the last Petite Fashion Challenge because I was traveling for work and didn't plan ahead so I made sure to prepare for this one!

Petite fashion blogger Megan from Long Live Classy came up with the 15th challenge this month:
Chic Pin-spiration-- Find a pic of an outfit you love on Pinterest, and re-create it the best way possible!
Be sure to post the pic of your outfit inspiration in your post as well!

This one's easy! Every time I buy a new piece for my wardrobe, I immediately check Pinterest for some inspiration. I have a board filled with outfit ideas and the most difficult part was narrowing it down to which one I wanted to use. Since I am working today and I just bought a white blazer from Forever 21, I decided to go with this inspirational pic of Krystal from This Time Tomorrow:

And here's my simplified rendition:
 Blazer - F21, TShirt - Loft, Pants - Loft, Belt - NY&Co, Necklace - F21, Sunglasses - Valentino, Watch - Coach, Shoes - Brazil

Make sure to check out Long Live Classy's blog to see all the other petite fashion bloggers!

You know things are busy cuz I wore this 4 weeks ago...


Cardigan - F21, Button down - NY&Co, Jeans - F21, Oxfords - F21, Necklace - Loehmann's, Watch - Coach

I know I've been a craptastic blogger lately, especially since my last blog post was 21 days ago. Between us going to Brazil for 6 days, Serg leaving for Thailand immediately after, and work being crazy, I have had NO time to put together outfits that are worth photographing, much less actually taking pictures of said boring outfits. And it's not going to get any better this week since I'm heading to DC tomorrow morning then Philly until Saturday night for work. Wah, wah, wah, I know.

I wore this outfit out on a lunch & IKEA date with a friend a million years ago. I have a thing for combining orange & blue (as seen here and at our wedding).

What I Wore - Cherry Blossom Tunic & ABCs

Tunic - F21, Jeans - F21, Boots - Target, Earrings - H&M

Once upon a time, long, long ago, I used to wear this tunic as a dress. True story. I have pictures to prove it but remembering my 23 year old legs that I took for granted just makes me sad. And now as a married 28 year old, it's only appropriate to wear over some skinny jeans or leggings, lol.
