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.

Bike Style: Polka Dotted T-shirt (from a free pattern!)

Contrary to what my blog may lead you to believe, I don’t live my life in cute vintage styled dresses everyday. More often than not, I’m in a basic uniform of jeans, a knit top or chambray shirt, flat shoes, and a cross-body bag. It’s a super easy, comfortable, and casual look that still looks a little bit put together.

Tee Shirt: Made by me

Chambray Shirt: INC at Macy’s (super old)

Bag: Lauren Ralph Lauren via DSW

Jeans + Sandals: American Eagle Outfitters

Lipstick: Clinique’s Melon Pop

When I saw Deer & Doe’s free t-shirt pattern, I immediately knew I wanted to make it. It’s the kind of style I could always use more of in my wardrobe. I made my first version in cute green and navy polka dotted knit, and I love the result. Here I’ve paired it with a chambray top, my most comfy skinny jeans, and my favorite summer sandals. It makes the perfect biking outfit!

My bike is from Papillionaire, and it is my baby. Papillionaire makes the most beautiful vintage inspired bicycles, and I love mine. It is the Mixte style which is the perfect combination of style and function in my book.

I finally managed to get my hair trimmed this week, and I’m so happy to have it back at this length!

I hope you enjoyed seeing a sewing project and a casual outfit in one post! What are you all up to this weekend? Thanks so much for stopping by today! 😀
