It’s Petite Fashion Challenge time again! This month’s PFC is being hosted over on fashionforteens. The challenge:

The challenge is to take traditionally summer pieces (like tank tops, shorts, mini skirts, sundresses etc.) and make them appropriate for fall.

My item is the Banana Republic linen vest that I had altered down from a regular size 0 to fit more like a 00P. A lot of things about this vest says “summer” to me, so since I invested a little bit of money into this guy, I want to make sure I get more than just seasonal wear out of it.

This vest feels like summer because:

  • The fabric is linen, which is a very summery fabric.
  • The color is a soft light blue stripe, almost nautical in feel.

My summer outfit is what I plan to wear to an office event at the Del Mar Racetrack in the near future. I love how men wear their most ridiculous seersucker and linen suiting to the racetrack, so I figure I’ll show ’em how a lady does it. :)

PS…blue & purple are analogous colors…and purple & yellow are complimentary colors!

My fall transition:

Nothing says fall better than a crisp blazer! Pairing the vest with darker colors, like the black blazer and dark denim, helps to temper the summery feel.

There ya go! Another summer is almost over, and I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to start layering again! Whoohoo!
