OOTD: My Petite Four Contest Entry

Monday, March 19, 2012

Hope everyone has been enjoying their weekends! The weather is finally starting to get warmer for us here on the East coast and I couldn't be happier, because that means I can finally start wearing my skirts and dresses barelegged again! Not to mention I'm super excited about all the bright colors and pastels that seem to be really in trend this year :D




So to say goodbye to the last days of winter, and in anticipation of the coming of spring, here's a transition outfit for when the weather is on the cooler side. This is also my entry to MyPetiteFour's weekly contest.



CONTEST RULES
Just tweet a picture of your look of the day showing your "Petite Four" - your favorite fashion or makeup items, and don't forget to include hashtag #MyPetiteFour in your message. You can also post your entry on their Facebook page as well. The winner will receive a free makeup set as a prize! For more information, click here.

My "petite four" picks: a leather (or in this case, faux leather) jacket, a bright handbag, a neutral scarf, and a playful ring.

I admit that I cheated a bit since this isn't today's look. I went to Chinatown last weekend and this is what I wore out for the trip. It was actually still pretty cold that day, so I layered a cable knit sweater underneath the jacket and added the scarf to keep me warm.

I cannot stop raving enough about my love for the Express moto jacket! The color is perfect for the spring and it's great for cooler days since it's lightweight but keeps the wind out. Not to mention it fits me like a glove and hugs my (non-existent) curves in all the right places!

The scarf was like $4 on Ebay and I actually have it in a number of different prints and colors...can you blame me though? It was so cheap!

I also love how the satchel adds a pop of color to my otherwise neutral outfit, and the fox ring is playful and whimsical. Best part? It was less than $2 on Ebay! Can you guys tell that I'm a total Ebay junkie? :)
