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.

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?

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!

Styling a little black dress for daytimeOne of my favorite things to wear, hands down, is a little black dress. They are versatile, and make me feel a little bit fancy, even during the day.

I’m excited to be working with Margu Design on today’s blog post, and I’ll share more about Margu shortly.
