summer 10 x 10: days 7 & 8

for these last couple of 10×10 outfits i’m going to double up on posts mostly because i want to move on to a couple of different things next week – including a recap of the whole challenge.

these two outfits were both very simple and easy, which is kind of my jam in the summer, especially since it has been so stinkin’ hot as of late. {which is a lot of fun when you’re a/c is on its last legs} but it has also shown me that i can get away with not putting a ton of thought into my clothes, as long as there’s a little pop of interest somewhere.

summer 10 x 10: day 6

on wednesday we spent a lot of time with friends. my best friend from high school and her mom and kids stopped by on their way through town in the morning, and then we took dinner to some other friends because she is recovering from surgery.

it was a busy day, but the good kind of busy – the kind when you’re busy because you’re connecting with people.

summer 10 x 10: day 4

on monday {day 4} the kids and i had lunch at my mother-i-l’s house with her and gran. after our normal morning at the gym, this was a welcome change for the kids – especially since they got to have chicken nuggets for lunch.

this was a great outfit for being a little dressed up, but still very comfortable.

summer 10 x 10: day 3

on day 3 we rode our bikes to church and did a bunch of little things around the house to get ready for the week. and it’s a very good thing i had just seen a photo about how women in europe bike around everywhere and still look cute. otherwise the whole biking thing may have totally de-railed my 10×10 plans.

10 x 10 style challenge: summer

today begins a new adventure for the next 10 days. i’ve decided to test my more is more approach to clothes, with a less is more approach. caroline of unfancy and lee of style bee have done this quite a few times over the last year or two, and i’ve decided to join in this time around.

they’re not actually starting until monday, but it works out better for me to go ahead and start today.

what it is: 10 pieces for 10 days. that’s it!

how it works: pick your pieces – the 10 pieces includes your clothes and shoes. tops, bottoms, dresses, shoes. accessories are freebies, as are workout clothes, etc. {otherwise, let’s face it, i wouldn’t do it!}

this first time around i’ve picked 3 bottoms, 3 tops, 3 pairs of shoes {of course}, and a dress:

the tops: cream ruffled tank, floral tank, black cropped t-shirt

the bottoms: jean shorts, boyfriend jeans, embroidered culottes

the dress: open-shoulder {super comfy} midi dress

the shoes: flat espadrilles, block-heeled sandals, ankle boots

and there you have it! i’m going to try to post each outfit of the day every day during this little experiment, and you can follow along on instagram too.

what do you think? would you try a 10×10?
