PFC #6: Dress Up Your Basics

The Challenge: "Jeans and a tee is a classic outfit starter. Depending on what you layer over this basic pairing, you can change style and feel of the entire look. This is your chance to show your personality and your creativity.
For this challenge, start off with a jeans and tee basic look (it can be any style or color) and dress it up to show off your personal style with accessories, jewelry, and whatever you’d like to add."


I have a habit of wearing new things until I get sick of them. These white jeans will be heavily rotated, until I find something else to love.


H&M jeans & tee, Talbots blazer, JS shoes, Gucci purse, J. Crew belt


Scarves - random & A. McQueen




I need to get a pedi, that's why I wore socks. :)

I don’t wear jeans that often, but I do own many pairs -19 to be exact. I went through a phase where I purchased only designer jeans. But now they sit in my closet, unloved. Such a waste of money, I know. I don’t own many tees, roughly around 10 - 8 of which I wear only to bed. They are the remains of my high school and early college years. So I guess I'm not a jeans and tee kinda girl. I knew about this challenge for weeks now, but since I have a terrible habit called procrastination, I waited till the very last minute. (practically writing this 15 mins. prior to post time). My style has changed so much that coming up with such an easy look, was harder than I thought. In any case, be sure to check out other Petite Fashion Challenge entries at Stylepint.com!

    I completely agree...it was a challenge finding a tee, and I too procrastinated. My husband took my pics around four! :/

  17. Yeah, you always get the colors in. I can never do color. I kind of suck at it.

    You always know how to do something simple and kick it up a notch.

    I'm definitely not a t and jeans kinda girl either, I've cut my jeans inventory to 5 or 6 pairs.

  31. Great look! The mix of scarfs is genius. It took me years to 'relax' on weekends in jeans and a t. I still like to have a more polished look, but at least I have been seen in town in simple jeans and a t ...where that used to never be the case!

  32. You're total eye candy with deliciously sweet looks, Khatu. I've loved those white jeans since seeing them in that "I Love You But" post. Pairing these white jeans with some platforms is a sweet combination.

  33. This outfit is perfect. So simple yet so amazing! The color combination and the idea to use two scarves is great. I too, own a thousand pairs of jeans and rarely ever wear them! IDK what it is about them!!
