It has been about two years since the last time I did a wardrobe challenge. I had been intending to use July to focus on Who Wears Who? And so when Caroline of Un-Fancy, and Lee of Style Bee announced that their Summer 10×10 Wardrobe Challenge would be starting the second week of the month, I decided to combine the two – jump start the blog, and partake in this round of the 10×10 wardrobe challenge.
The basic premise of the 10×10 Wardrobe Challenge is: 10 pieces of clothing, 10 looks, 10 days.
It’s like the world’s most low-key capsule wardrobe. And a deliciously simple way to get your feet wet with wardrobe minimalism (or style blogging…).
My 10 piece wardrobe consists of 4 shirts, 1 skirt, 1 pair of jeans, 2 dresses, and 2 pairs of shoes. (Shoes count towards the 10 pieces, but accessories, pjs, undergarments, and purpose specific pieces (i.e. gym wear) don’t count.)
I’m using this mini-capsule wardrobe to experiment with tee-shirts and sunglasses. I’ve never been a huge wearer of either, so I’m excited to play around with both.
With today being Monday, and the first day of the challenge, I went with an easy dress, an easy tee, comfy boots, easy accessories, and a bold lip.
What I’m wearing…
Shirt: The Babe with the Power Tee in black from Hello, Oui Fresh
Dress: A black & white abstract print maxi dress from H&M (old, and I’m not seeing anything similar)
Shoes: Salome Buttero by Dr. Martens’
Sunglasses: From Ricky’s (unfortunately, they don’t appear to have sunnies online)
Necklace: Old, from a street fair
Lip: Always On Liquid Lipstick from Smashbox, in the colorway Bawse
