SoupTee + SilkSkirt + PlaidButtonUp 3

It’s day 6 of the Summer 2017 10×10 Wardrobe Challenge! (Or it might be day 8 of 12 – depending on how you want to count things.)

I took the weekend off from blogging, but still stuck to my 10 piece mini-capsule wardrobe. Saturday I repeated my outfit from Day 2, made-by-me button up shirt, black jeans, and boots. Then Sunday was pretty much just a Sunday at home in pjs sort of day, though I did briefly (very briefly) repeated the look I wore on Day 3 for some errands.

Today is definitely the most layered look I’ve worn so far.

This tee-shirt is one that I absolutely love, but sometimes have a difficult time styling. I don’t run into problems styling it in general – there are TONS of theoretical outfits that this piece would look amazing as part of! I run into trouble styling this shirt for me using my wardrobe.

I adore the print, but the sticking point I keep coming up against is the cropped length combined with the curved shirttail hem.

So far, my favorite ways to wear this shirt are over a dress (like I did on Friday), or with a pair of high-waisted jeans (though that’s not always a look I want to throw on), or with a black camisole underneath.

Because I run into trouble styling this shirt in my day-to-day life, I included it in this wardrobe challenge to have a chance to experiment with it.

I’m still a little uncertain how I feel about this look. It’s my least favorite look so far in this challenge, but I think it might be an interesting starting point to experiment further with. And at the very least, I’m glad I tried it, because isn’t that the point of any wardrobe challenge – try something and see what happens?
