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!
