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?

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!

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.
