Petite Fashion Challenge #5 - brighten your work wardrobe

Thanks Cynthia from Shorty Stories for hosting the Petite Fashion Challenge #5. Be sure to visit her blog to see all the other participants' entries.

The challenge: Create a sophisticated work appropriate look that has no more than one dark piece (it can be a skirt, pants, a blazer, sweater etc) excluding shoes, accessories and hosiery.

My go to outfits usually involves a lot of blacks and grays. This is a wonderful opportunity to wear something different. I went with the color "cream". You guys know I just bought a cream coat, and love it. Tells you my feelings to this color. :) And it's perfect time to break out my new J.Crew bell skirt. I am a new fan of the olive green color this year. Bought tons of olive green. To make this outfit more fun, I added the Ann Taylor leopard skinny belt, and Forever 21 camera necklace.

Then I got more creative and added this beloved faux-fur wrap from Banana Republic a few years ago, and never got a chance to wear.  I wore it draped with a belt and then wore it with one end tucked into the built-in loop. I like both look, which one do you prefer?

Outfit details:
Loft turtle neck (old)
J.Crew wool bell skirt (buy it here)
Anthropologie tights
Ann Taylor Cara Bow pumps (buy it here)
The Limited ring

  1. Skirt is too short for a women your age and body type.
