This post is for the Petite Fashion Challenge #19 hosted over at Pandaphilia by Angie, an adorable first year medical student (I love reading her posts about what she thinks of first year, it seems so long ago!!). The challenge was to take a trend and make it your own. I picked bold patterns and statement necklaces. Both of these items are on the edge of my comfort zone. The necklace is big and clunky, but its a neutral gold color. The sweater has bold stripes, but its in a classic cut. I threw some chambray on because, well, it seems to make nearly every outfit feel a little more put together.
