Summer 10×10 Recap

I’m squeezing out the last drops of summer before welcoming cooler temps, changing leaves and chunky sweaters.  Before all that- I wanted to share my VERY belated Summer 10×10 recap.

For anyone new here (WELCOME!!!), 10×10 challenges involve choosing 10 garments (excluding workout attire/jackets/outerwear), styling them together 10 different ways over a period of 10 days, and sharing them with the 10×10 community on Instagram.

The seasonal challenge began several years ago with style bloggers Style Bee and http://www.un-fancy.com and it’s something I look forward to year round!

The experience fosters creativity with my wardrobe and helps refine my capsule style.  I don’t restrict my closet to a certain number of items, but instead I ensure every single piece in my closet is utilized throughout the year.

Since I LOVE to occasionally thrift, I practice a ‘one in, one out’ rule to keep my closet tidy. 80% of items this round were thrifted!  Excluding my Nisolo shoes (my splurge items), the total cost of all other items is around $50.  


I prefer fall and winter layering, so finishing out an entire summer 10×10 challenge is an accomplishment!

My ten (actually only went with nine items) included:

3 TOPS

Eileen Fischer tunic (thrifted organic linen)

Banana Republic tank (thrifted

Lululemon tee (thrifted)


1 DRESS

LL Bean denim dress (thrifted)


3 BOTTOMS

White House Black market white pants (thrifted)

vintage linen pants (thrifted)

workout leggings (old)


2 PAIRS OF SHOES 

Nisolo Serena Sandals

Nisolo Isla Woven flats

 

Let’s look at my 10 combos:
