10×10 Challenge Completed! (Summer Edition)

If you haven’t read this post, let me explain what this is about real quick. I saw a post byย Meg, who did this 10×10 Styling Challenge, created byย Style Bee. Basically, you choose 10 items out of your wardrobe, and for the next 10 days, your outfits can only come from the 10 items. The rules aren’t too hard and fast, but I decided not to wear the same outfit twice, as that seemed to defeat the purpose of this challenge.

As a refresher, here are my 10 items.

So, here’s my 10 outfits I came up with!

Monday – Outfit #1

I started off with my floral dress as it was a sunny day. Also, a dress is pretty much an outfit on it’s own, and I wasn’t feeling the most inspired this Monday morning. That being said, wearing this dress tends to cheer me up. It’s floaty and sweet, and I paired it with my comfy flats (again Mondays). I took this picture before work (still kinda tired tbh), as I normally tie my hair back in some way at work. Babies like grabbing hair.

Tuesday – Outfit #2

Another warm day, so I put together an official outfit. T-Shirt, Shorts and Sandals are comfy and perfect for another hot day. This was taken after work, and I’m not quite sure what I’m doing, but I kinda liked this picture.

Wednesday – Outfit #3

Today was Valentine’s day! I put my hair in a braid rather than a ponytail to be a teensy bit more festive. I wore my floral singlet, harem pants and also a grey cardi. It was cooler in the morning, but by mid afternoon I had to take it off as it got really hot again. This was the also comfiest outfit I’ve had so far, I love these pants ๐Ÿ˜€

Thursday – Outfit #4

I was feeling kind of lazy on Thursday, as you do. So I wore almost the same outfit as Wednesday, except I threw on my Superdry shirt instead. Still counts right! Plus, I left my hair down (which was a mistake as it was windy today).

Friday – Outfit #5

It was a little cooler today, and by that I mean it was cloudy instead of just sunny. So I decided I could wear my sweater. There haven’t been too many days where I could wear that, as I would just get to hot. But, paired with shorts and sandals, it was okay. I also wore a necklace today just for fun! It’s my little owl one, the kids are fascinated by it.

Saturday – Outfit #6

The weekend! Saturday was a fairly busy day for us. We were out for almost the whole day, driving here and there. We also decided to eat out for dinner which we haven’t done since last year. We normally get takeout. We went to a little Italian place and the food was so goood! I’m happy with my outfit choice. I love this floral dress, and since it was a bit cloudy, I could bring out my trusty cardigan for an added layer. I also wore contacts for a change, cause I wasn’t too lazy.

Sunday – Outfit #7

It only now occurs to me that I’m derping in this picture, but too bad. It’s staying. Another sunny weekend day. A bit warmer than before, so out came my combo of singlet, shorts and sandals. I did have to check that I hadn’t worn this combo before, but I have been keeping track of the combos in a notebook, and I was safe. Also, I like pairing something floaty with something a little more fitted. I also realized that I’ve been wearing these sandals for a few days in a row, but they’re so comfy!!

Monday – Outfit #8

Still a warm day, but with lots of clouds. Pairing my cardi, with my stripy singlet and shorts proved to be a good mix. Since it was slightly cooler, my cardi helped keep me warm, but since I was in shorts, I wasn’t too warm. Also, this is comfy to move around in all day, as working with little kids and babies, you tend to prefer comfort over style.

Tuesday – Outfit #9

There was a decent bit of rain today, so I actually wore boots today, but for the sake of the challenge, I put on the black flats, which was my original shoes I was going to wear. I wanted to wear my floral dress one more time, but I wanted it to look different. So, since there was rain and it was a bit cooler, I threw my sweater on top. I’m not quite sure what I thought of this outfit. It seems a bit too preppy, but hey, I was super comfy in it!

Wednesday – Outfit #10

I was trying to think of what I hadn’t worn together at this point. It was a little warmer, so I didn’t want to have too many layers. Black and white is always a good mix, so I wore my stripy singlet with harem pants. I wore my yellow sandals just for a pop of colour.

There you have it! My first ever outfit challenge completed! I actually had a lot of fun putting this together, that I’m planning on doing this challenge seasonally. Otherwise, I’d just keep using the same 10 items. I recommend giving this a go, even if you only do it for 5 days instead of 10. It definitely helped me to mix and match more, rather than wearing the same thing everyday to work, like I sometimes do. But hey, the kids do it too ๐Ÿ˜›

Which was your favourite outfit? Mine’s a three way tie between 5, 6, and 7.

  2. Those yellow shoes really spicy up an outfit. Great choice of shoes, I need to get something similar because I never wear color. xx

    1. Thanks Azra! I really agree. I’m the same, I love my neutral colour scheme in general haha! These shoes seemed like a great pop of colour and definitely not like any other shoes I have ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Nice choices I like numbers 3, 6 and 9 but very nice combos its amazing how many outfits you can make from just a few pieces

  8. I’ve seen lots of people trying this capsule wardrobe thing. I basically just wear jeans/t-shirt every day so I don’t think it would be much use for me but I definitely like the idea of it. Especially if you’re trying to cut down on what clothes you have ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. It is pretty much a capsule wardrobe! I often wear the same thing everyday too, but I thought it would be fun to try get creative with just 10 items and try not to wear the same thing twice ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. Hi Angela, so glad you decided to try out the challenge, it’s a lot of fun isn’t it! I think my favourite outfit is number 5, a nice pop of colour with the yellow sandals!

    1. Hey Meg! I had so much fun with the challenge! I’m glad you introduced me to do it ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. It really is! It’s so much fun to think about what different outfits I can come up with out of the 10 items ๐Ÿ˜€

  12. Cute outfits. I really like that floral dress, totally something I would wear too. Iโ€™ve been thinking if I could ever do a challenge like this, truth is, Iโ€™m not sure lol.
