Petite Fashion Challenge #13: Professional Outfit For Under $100

Sorry for being late, but at least I get participation credit? The outfit I planned for this post didn't work out and I had to change plan. However there was absolutely no time for me to take decent outdoor pictures, so I will compensate by posting two outfits. Both were this week's work outfits. This challenge was actually great for me because my everyday wears are typically below $100 (not counting shoes and accessories).

The Challenge:
Stylish for under $100: Put together a professional outfit (excluding shoes and accessories) for under $100. Bonus points if you can put together a completed outfit including shoes and accessories for under $100.

Outfit 1:
Banana Republic factory tweed dress ($45)
Karen Millen cardigan (steal at outlet for $25)
Ann Taylor pumps
pearl necklace from auction
Ann Taylor factory bracelet

Total $70

Outfit 2:
Loft blouse ($20)
Loft jacket ($50)
Gap corduroy leggings ($30)
Aldo booties
Ann Taylor belts

Total $100

Thanks Annie for hosting. Don't forget to check out all the challenge outfits here.


  1. I love the Karen Millen cardi! It would be a great weekend outfit paired with jeans (or a casual Friday if you're allowed to wear jeans on Fridays).

  2. You're not the only one late!! I was going to do two outfits but just didn't work out. I love the cardi! So is this outlet in Boston area? My friend and I were just talking today doing a road trip to Boston ;) Love the tweed dress too, I have a BR one I got at outlet too (but looks completely different), its my go-to outfit when I'm late in the morning so easy to jump in it and go, and look professional without barely trying!

    1. Yes, it was from the Wrentham outlet. Do let me know if you ever decide to make a road trip to Boston area.
