I thought I would incorporate my work outfit post today into this month’s Petite Fashion Challenge since I got dressed this morning with the challenge in mind.

Cynthia of Shorty Stories is the host for the fifth ever Petite Fashion Challenge. For this challenge Cythia asked us to to “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.”

Here is the archive for past challenges.

PFC #1 – Extra Petite
PFC #2 – Alterations Needed
PFC #3 – Petite Little Girl
PFC #4 – Curls & Pearls

I have some freedom when it comes to workwear – unless I have a meeting or a presentation I typically stay holed up in my office, uggs in foot and using my coat as a blanket. It’s hard to find motivation in the winter to dress creatively for the weather so I can’t wait to see what everyone has come up with!

Shell: J. Crew Crewcuts

Cardigan: Talbots (similar here)

Belt: Anne Klein

Skirt: Ann Taylor (similar here)

Shoes: Franco Sarto

And the item I am passing on today is this pair of Newport News orange jeans in size 2P. I got these about two years ago and I don’t know what compelled me to order them because I so rarely wear jeans and certainly not colorful jeans. So if you are interested, leave a comment below (please be clear, so say something along the lines of – I claim these orange jeans – so people will know that it’s taken). You will be responsible for postage but it’s otherwise free.
