Update: Thank you all so very much for taking the time to read and comment on this post. For the fun of it I did a quick tally of the 3 looks. As of evening of 3/26/2011, I have 6 votes on #1, 10 votes on #2, and 5 votes on #3. #2 is clearly the winner. I didn't expect it, and really feel good about pulling that look together now. Thank you all again.
Thank you, Jess from stylepint, for hosting this Petite Fashion Challenge!!!
"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."

I was very excited about this challenge, because I love to wear jeans and tees, and I love playing with this combo, a lot. So I did 3 outfits with this challenge. A little overly zealous, I know, but it was FUN!
The basic tee (Loft) and jeans(Gap). A bit boring, right?
1. Dress up with a jacket (Theory) and a nice little purse (Chanel). Instant glam!
2. Dress for a party. Add sparkly to a basic tee by wearing a loose fitting sequins top (Loft) and a long necklace (Peri Cameo).
Add more wild element by putting a leopard print cardi (Loft) over it. Leave it unbuttoned to show off the sparklies. Add matching color ring. (Forever 21).
3. I like skinny jeans because I can wear boots over it. Add knee high boots (Via Spiga) for instant coolness. Top off with military jacket (Loft) and a casual crossbody (Cole Haan).
Readers, how do you think I did? Which one do you like the best out of the 3 outfits? I can't wait to see all the entries!
