After completing my first Petite Fashion Challenge I was excited to hear about Petite Fashion Challenge #2 hosted by Alterations Needed.
But then I kind of started panicking because September was filled with personal highs (friend’s wedding!) and personal lows (2 funerals 🙁 ) and the rest of what makes life so hectic all in between. I had pictured in my mind to turn a Summer Dress into an appropriate Fall outfit which seemed easy in theory but turned out to be quite a challenge!
Here is the dress I picked:
This is a dress I ususally only wear on vacation because it’s quite low cut. Sometimes I would wear this over my bikini if we were walking around town.
So here is how I changed it to wear for Fall/Winter:
I didn’t want to just throw a cardigan over it and say “yay this is Fall” I wanted to really show the layering. I put the turtle neck underneath for a bit more modesty and to make this work friendly but buttoned the 3rd button of the cardigan up so the neckline of the dress wouldn’t really show. I also liked putting on textured tights with this. I thought it was interesting with the pattern of the dress.
So…how’d I do on my 2nd challenge? I think this one was even more challenging than the first LOL! But I’m so glad I did it, I would’ve never thought to wear this dress to work since it was so summery and revealing but now I can, YAY!
