Petite Pick of October

Sorry I haven't gotten around to doing one of these since July...and it's almost October now! So I just decided to start up my Petite Pick again for the next month.
October can be quite chilly, at least towards the end of the month, but layering is definitely key. When I leave for class in the morning, it's still a little windy and cool but by the time I come back around lunchtime and then again around 5, I'm surprised by how hot it is!
For those cold mornings when you don't want to get out of bed, throw on the AE Military Shirt Jacket ($39.95) over the adorable Ventura Beach tee ($15.50) from Hollister. Environmentalism is so in right now, and the graphics on this shirt promote that in a cute way. Later, if it warms up, you can just stow the jacket away or simply roll up the sleeves. The jacket is great for petite frames because it's not so long and huge that it overwhelms you. And the tee's V-neck will show off your small bust in a tasteful way.
As far as jeans go, keep them looking casual. Try Hollister's Oceanside Super Skinnies ($49.50) in destroyed medium wash. Skinny jeans are great at creating curves on smaller frames, and you can easily scrunch up the hems if they're too long. Try a bright belt that pulls the whole outfit together, such as the AE Colorful Bar Belt ($19.50). It will draw attention to your little waist.
Don't skimp on the accessories! An outfit as simple as this needs some cute jewelry. The AE Hearts Galore Necklace ($15.50) adds a cute, girly touch and works well with the V-neck. And the shoes, of course, are also important. Slip on the AE Suede Ballet Flat ($29.50) and you'll be good to go.
For a simple fall look perfect for school, the weekend or a casual date, try this outfit!
