Fall 10×10: Week Two

After a week ‘intermission’ to participate in the dress up days for Homecoming week at school, I’m back in the Fall 10×10 hosted by Lee (from Style Bee). Here’s a look at the 8 items I chose (I’m not counting shoes this round, so I selected fewer items) and the first 5 looks I wore. Look 6…


Fall 10×10: Week One

The first week of a 10×10 Style Challenge always seems the most obvious, the most safe. I always look back and realized I was careful with my outfits in an attempt to not ‘waste’ any looks. The second week seems to be when I stretch out of my comfort zone and find new ways to…


Fall 10×10 Style Challenge

With this fall’s beautiful weather and warmer than usual temps I feel I’ve barely scraped the surface of my fall wardrobe. I love fall style as much as the next person, but I also try not to rush through each season by dressing for the next one it before it’s really necessary. So, I’m still…

Taking a blog break has sounded pretty appealing the past few months, but for whatever reason, I couldn’t bring myself to actually…


Summer 10×10: A Full Recap

Here is a look back at the 10 looks I created from my 10 item mini capsule. I chose some favorites, some not-so-favorites, and thought about how the mini challenge can be applied to my Core Wardrobe mission as I move away from seasonal capsules. My 10 Items: Two shoes: strappy sandals and Birkenstocks Two bottoms: Linen…

Summer 10×10: Outfits 9 & 10

And another 10×10 mini capsule challenge is done! I did my first 10 item capsule over the spring with Lee (from Style Bee) and I loved the fresh outlook it gave me on my wardrobe. And after completing this one I still feel the same – there is really something to the saying ‘less is more’….
