Spring 10×10 Style Challenge: Look No. 10

how to wear a dress as a topFriends! It’s time for the very last look in my spring 10×10 style challenge! This has been such a fun creative exercise for me, but I’m so excited to have my full closet to pick from again tomorrow. I love how this challenge has pushed me to try new ways to wear the items in my closet, and today’s look is one of my favorite new combinations. It’s made of up of two pieces I would never have thought to put together outside of the 10×10 restrictions, and I love how it looks. The combination of a fitted top and full skirt is a nod to some of my favorite vintage looks,

And you just can’t beat a twirly skirt in the spring!

Spring 10×10 Style Challenge: Look No. 9

audrey hepburn inspired fashion blog It’s the second to last day of my spring 10×10 style challenge, and today I’m sharing another casual look. As I mentioned last week, Thursday’s are all about comfort and ease for me, and today was no exception. Even though this outfit is comprised of very basic pieces, I love the classic feel it has. It’s the kind of thing that is definitely laid back, but still has a touch of elegance. I have to admit I did find myself itching to wear a different top then those I chose for my challenge, but I stuck with it, and I’m happy with the result. Plus it’s just one more day until I get to play around with every piece in my closet!

If Audrey Hepburn wore jeans and a t-shirt, I think it would have looked something like this.

Spring 10×10 Style Challenge: Look No. 8

how to style high waisted white jeans

This 10×10 challenge is quickly coming to an end, and I’ve had so much fun mixing up my wardrobe over the past two weeks! I’m back today with look 8, and this look is one of my personal favorites so far. It’s the kind of thing I can totally see myself wearing while wondering around a European city (I’ve got a mild case of wanderlust,) but it lends a touch of European elegance to my everyday life. At its root, this outfit is basically just a good old-fashioned jeans and tee combo, but the design and cut of each piece make it more interesting, and it looks like it took much more effort than it did.

It’s fresh, classic, and perfect for spring.

Spring 10×10 Style Challenge: Look No. 7

casual romantic outfits

Hi friends! I’m feeling pretty darn tired for it to be so early in the week, but I’m back with another installment in my 10×10 challenge! Today’s look is casually romantic, and a lot of fun. I can never wear this top without thinking about the puffy shirt Seinfeld episode, but that just makes me love it more. I’ve learned another lesson while working on this challenge: keep up with laundry! Today I swapped my jeans for a different pair because I just haven’t gotten them washed! It’s my first cheat of the 10×10, but I’m okay with it. Enough with the intro;

  Let’s chat casual romantic style.

Spring 10×10 Style Challenge: Look No. 6

wearing a denim jacket with a dress

Happy Monday friends! I ended up taking a little break from blogging over the weekend, and enjoyed some wonderful family time over the Easter holiday. I hope you were all able to get a little relaxing in as well! I have to admit I’ve been snacking on leftover Easter cookies with my cup of tea as I type up this blog post. 😉 Today I’m back with look 6 in my spring 10×10 challenge, and even braved a bit of rain to get some photos of the look. Today’s look is simple (surprise, surprise!), but could easily have a more dressed up feel with a few tweaks. As it stands, it’s a perfect work option for me, but could easily go out to lunch or the movies.

And who said little black dresses are just for evening?
