Summer 10×10

I’m in the midst of another wardrobe challenge-this time a Summer10x10 hosted by Lee of Style Bee and Caroline of Un-Fancy, and I’m mixing the old with a teensy bit of new! To catch you up, the challenge entails styling 10 items (garments + shoes) for 10 days and creating 10 different combos to showcase the many different ways to wear just a few items, making the most of your closet.

The old:  

I pulled my 2 year old wedding dress into the mix to style it a few different ways. Fun fact: I bought the dress just a few hours before we were married in a private, little beach ceremony in Key West by our Bed & Breakfast inn keeper.  Read all about our non-traditional minimalist wedding HERE.

The new: 

I recently splurged for the Serena Sandal by the local, Nashville brand Nisolo and I HAD to include them in this challenge.  They are easily dressed up or down and I still can’t believe how incredibly comfortable they are.  We’re meant to be and you can read more raves on the brand and sandal HERE. (ALSO-Nisolo has an amazing flash sale coming up if you’ve been considering a purchase. Details coming soon, as well as a discount code!)

My new (to me) Madewell Transport tote I scored on Poshmark may be my all time favorite secondhand purchase ever!  BONUS-it was nearly half the price, but still in like-new condition since the previous owner just had it cleaned and polished! I’ve been carrying it non-stop for work, play, travel and everywhere in between.

There’s nothing too extraordinary about these ensembles, but for me-summer is all about ease, comfort and staying simple.

The knot: I’ve been picking up styling tips for my minimal wardrobe from the #10×10 community and the front knotted tank is a prime example. I’ve seen knots in front, back, sides and on dresses, tees and blouses. I love the pop of interest they provide and how it can make any item more versatile.

See you next week for the final five days + my summer10x10 takeaways!
