This month’s Petite Fashion Challenge #13 was to put together a Professional outfit for under $100 excluding shoes and accessories. Bonus points for the outfit is under $100 including shoes and accessories.

I had so much fun putting together this outfit. I don’t normally wear skirts to work. I prefer pants or nice jeans. My workplace does not require a strict dresscode. However this outfit is very comfortable! I previously wore the J. Crew Double Serge skirt (here) and I was super excited to put together another outfit with my 40% off skirt purchase.

I'm a mom of 2 girls. I struggled to lose the baby weight the second time around and by blogging my struggles helped me deal with a lot of the stress. During my struggles, I had random strangers ask me "How far along are you?" or "When are you due?" I was embarrassed. Most of the time I told them the truth, that I had given birth X months before. There were a couple of times I lied and said what they wanted to hear. When I was at a normal weight, I then struggled to find what clothes fit me. Everything about fashion went out the door and I had to re-learn what clothes and sizes fit my post pregnancy body the 2nd time around.
