Well, I made it 48 hours into the Summer 10×10 Style Challenge before I had to make a swap. The 10 day forecast shows exactly zero days less than 92 degrees, so I decided the denim crops were a no-go. I had included them with hopes of adding some variety to the looks, but I also need to be realistic about my day-to-day activities and the weather. Sunday morning I needed something to wear around the house and my linen shorts were dirty, so I went for the denim cutoffs…I just can’t seem to tear myself away. 😉 Soon enough we’ll be heading into three seasons of pant-wearing, so I’m embracing the summer wardrobe.
Here’s a look at the first few looks I’ve worn from my mini-capsule over the weekend.
I think this outfit will see more than one turn in the 10 day challenge, especially for daytime mom-duty. Nothing fancy, nothing too creative, but it works for me. I wore this Saturday to run errands and do birthday party drop off, return to birthday party with swimsuit and towel (mom brain), and birthday party pickup.
Sunday night my husband and I got a babysitter and went out for a few hours on a long overdue date night. We drank beer, played ping pong, and had dinner sitting at the bar, where we talked about parenting struggles and kitchen remodels and all that romantic stuff. 😉
I wore this tank dress from Imby, which is literally the softest thing I’ve ever worn. I added a few accessories and off we went (nothing says going out sans kids like a clutch, am I right?!)
I have worn this Brass maxi dress twice since posting my 10 pieces on Friday – both times for entertaining at our home. Friday night we had family over for Brynn’s 1st birthday party and Monday night some friends came over for dinner and s’mores by the firepit and this dress was the quickest way to get ready before guests arrived. It’s comfortable, machine-washable (important at a 1st birthday party), and so flattering. In my true laid back summer style, makeup is at a minimum, no jewelry, no fuss.
