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.

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. 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!

Capsule Wardrobe Planning: My Spring Wardrobe Wish List

Spring 2017 Capsule Wardrobe WishlistThis week I’ve been pulling out my spring and summer clothes. It’s always so fun to see pieces from the past with the fresh eyes of a new year, and it definitely helps to inspire fun new outfit combinations.

These items range from updates of old favorites to more trend led items, and I have to confess; as much as I love a streamlined wardrobe, shopping for a new season is pretty darn fun.

Make some room in your closet; here are the pieces I have my eye on.
