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?

Spring 10×10 Style Challenge: Look No. 5

blush pink t shirtWhew, the spring 10×10 is halfway through, and I’m so happy it’s Friday! My week came to a bit of a hectic end, but I’m looking forward to taking it easy over the weekend and enjoying the Easter holiday with my family. Speaking of taking it easy, I think today’s outfit may just be the most relaxed look I’ve shared here on the blog! I need a ready rotation of comfortable relaxed outfits for work I do with a local international group, and this look is perfect for those busy mornings. It’s functional, but features a little bit of styling that I’ll talk about below.

This look is all about the basics. Let’s try to make jeans and a tee a little more interesting!

Spring 10×10 Style Challenge: Look No. 4

mixing stripes with floralsWell friends, we’re on day four of the 10×10 challenge, and I’m starting to feel a bit more adventurous with my outfits! Today’s is a pretty great example of that, so much so that when I saw my dad on Wednesday evening, he asked me whether or not the top and skirt actually work together. 😉 I’m going with yes. Yes they do. Since today’s look makes quite a statement on its own, I didn’t do much in the way of accessorizing, but I love how the look came together, and I’m excited to tell you about it. I also made a couple of adjustment for work, which I’ll talk about more near the end of this post in case you are curious.

Floral print and stripes together? Why yes!

Spring 10×10 Style Challenge: Look No. 3

minimal spring outfit capsule wardrobeHappy Wednesday friends! I’m back with my third look for the spring 10×10 style challenge, hosted by Lee from Style Bee and Caroline from Unfancy! You can check out the ten pieces I chose by clicking here. As I keep on moving with this challenge, I am realizing how easy it is for me to get stuck in a style rut. Mixing up just a few items is challenging, but it’s injecting a much needed dose of creativity into what I wear day-to-day. Today’s look is the first to repeat items, borrowing the top half of the outfit from look no. 1. In spite of the similarities between the two looks, this ensemble feels fresh to me, and I love the accessories.

Ivory wide leg trousers + blush pink = oh-so spring appropriate!

April showers can’t stop this style challenge! The spring 10×10 is well under way, and today I’m sharing my second look. I combined three of my ten pieces for a rainy day of my usual activities. This combination is a tried and true one for me that I find myself reaching for fairly often during the workweek. It has a bit of polish, but is still laid back which I love. This outfit combines three of my favorite things: stripes, neutrals, and denim, so for me, it’s a win win win.
