Petite Fashion Challenge # 11: Vacation Vogue

Pin It
I am personally excited for this month’s PFC. My family and I are going on vacation soon and this challenge couldn't have come at a better time. This month, Ski Petite asked us to:

Put together an outfit made for sightseeing. It should be one that will be comfortable for walking around in and can last you from the early morning until dinner and drinks in the evening. Plus, you're on vacation, so you'd better make sure you look good in photos, which you'll have for years to come. You can choose just one outfit but vary it by adding or taking off layers or accessories to take you from the a.m. to the p.m. and make one outfit easier to last through the day
…so for this challenge, I am making this simple pleated dress work for both day and night. The easiest way create a day-to-night look is by playing with your accessories

For my day look:
- Paired this dress with sandals for extra comfort
- Simple necklace added the perfect touch to my casual look
- Carried an oversized bag for storage
- What I am wearing: Dress: c/o Velvet (buy similar - available in size 0) |  Necklace: c/o Kate and Soo (buy here) | Sandals: LOFT (buy similar) | Purse: Bebe patchwork (buy similar)

For my night look:
- Paired up a black blazer for a dressier look
- Swapped my sandals for a pair of black pumps
- Put on a statement necklace for extra oomph
- Added a small clutch to keep my phone and lipstick in during the evening
- What I am wearing: Blazer: gifted from a friend (buy similar - available in 00) | Pumps: Ann Taylor perfect leather pump (buy here) | Necklace: Lia Sophia (buy similar) | Clutch: BR exotic leather clutch (buy similar)

As you can see, it takes no time at all to transform your look from “day” to “night”. If you’re interested in seeing more “day-to-night” looks, head over here to check them out. Thanks, Ski Petite for hosting this month’s challenge.

Sydney I love it!!! The dress looks completely transformed!! That 1.5 hours was worth it LOL! I also love how you displayed your photos!

Really Petite

Ooooo LOVE it! You did such a great job on this one Sydney! I didn't have time so I had to pass this round :(

Petite Adventures

Love the dress! It's such a great colour


haha, we kinda went the opposite direction as far as how we transitioned from day to night. i love this pretty pleated dress and the belted blazer looks great!

cute & little


Way to rock the pleated dress Sydney! It looks amazing and the blazer really does "dress" it up! =)


Those shoes would so not work as a tourist in a big city with a lot of walking. But you look great!


Blue is your color Sydney. The dress is absolutely gorgeous on you! Great transition from casual daytime to dressy nighttime!

lovely pettit_mom

that so pretty combination from day to night...like it


@deelirium It's hard to see in the pictures but these sandals have cushion padding for extra support. They are quite comfortable for walking =)


*sigh* gotta love warm weather clothes (for warm-weather vacations) especially when the temperature is getting colder and colder around here...

I love your dark blazer/light blue dress combo! Great job :)

The Little Dust Princess

Great looks! I loveee the dress. This colour compliments your skin tone so well.


Gorgeous! That dress is stunning! I love what you did with all your accessories!


change of belts=genius!! this dress is absolutely adorable and sooo picture worthy!


LOVE that dress! Your day to night looks are perfect. I will definitely use this as inspiration for future vacations. :)



You pulled this off during your lunch break?? I tip my figurative hat to you on a job well done! Love that you even thought of the handbags!


Gorgeous dress... you look lovely!


You did so well for this challenge Sydney, I like both the day and night looks!


I love that necklace in your nighttime outfit - a statement for sure, but it doesn't overwhelm your frame in the least. Great challenge response!!

Aya Smith

You PERFECTLY transitioned a dress from day to night! Gorgeous - also, you are too darn pretty... just stop it, will you! ;)

What a great transition. I love the color of that dress. All the accessories you've used are so pretty. I always have a tough time packing for vaca as I tend to overpack and then end up not wearing what I bring. Will have to look into pairings so I can wear one outfit twice like you've done here. Thanks for sharing.



the night look is one of my favorite looks on you. u did an amazing job from tranforming from day to night!

Alterations Needed

The dress under the blazer is perfection! I love it! So impressed you did all this on your lunch break. That's dedication! :)


great posts! your dress is really pretty!


I absolutely adore that blue dress...it looks great with the belt and the jacket.
