Hello beautiful people!
I’m coming at you with another collab with my gorgeous friend Courtney!
I approached her this time with this idea and since we both had a lot of fun putting outfits together in October, I thought we could both step outside of our comfort zone together once again to do another fashion related post 🙂
This time we’re trying the 10×10 outfit challenge as seen on Pinterest.
10 Pieces. 10 Outfits. 10 Days.
I know a few bloggers here on WP have tried it but I feel like I haven’t seen it enough. Maybe I’m not following the right bloggers, I don’t know. But anyway, we attempted this for fall season in hopes it would go well.
10×10 Outfit Challenge
What took the longest for me was choosing what clothes I wanted. Because remember, whatever you chose is what you’ll be wearing for 10 days. I also found it difficult to balance out the pieces as there are other 10×10 capsules on Pinterest which include shoes and accessories but that was too hardcore for me so I kept it simple.
I chose to have 3 tops, 3 bottoms, 2 sweaters, 1 cardigan, and a pair of thigh-high socks.
Here’s a breakdown:
- Olive top
- Leopard print top
- Butterfly sleeve top
- 1 pair of jeans
- 1 pair of black leggings
- 1 black skirt
- 1 beige cardigan
- 1 pair thigh-high socks
Once I had decided on the clothes themselves, it was easy to put outfits together in advance. With three bottoms, I could alternate them over the span of three days, which means I would wear them all at least three times each. With tops and sweaters I could wear them two times each over the span of 10 days.
So let me show you the outfits I have put together with this capsule:
Items chosen: Skirt | Olive Top | Thigh-High Socks | Beige Cardigan
Possibly one of my favorite outfits is pairing a skirt with thigh-high socks with a cardigan. It’s comfy, keeps me warm and feminine. Luckily, we had good weather so it was a good outfit to start the challenge with.
Items chosen: Leggings | Butterfly Sleeve Top | Beige Cardigan
A simple outfit I wore to school with Ciel. I walk and move around a lot so leggings for a school day were a must. The cardigan surprisingly kept me warm. I love that the butterfly sleeve top has tree branches with fall colors, which is why I picked it for this challenge.
Items chosen: Jeans | Leopard Print Top | Beige Cardigan
Yes, I did use my cardigan a lot throughout this challenge. This is one of my go-to outfits for running errands. This was also the day I realized my jeans are a bit big on me so I’m patiently waiting for the day I can go buy a few new jeans…
Items chosen: Skirt | Olive Sweater | Thigh-High Socks
I almost forgot to take photos of this outfit so it’s a bit darker than the rest of the photos.. This outfit is simple, nothing special. Also, don’t mind the shoes, tried to switch it up a bit LMAO.
Items chosen: Skirt | Burgundy Sweater | Thigh-High Socks
It had started getting colder so I decided to knock out the skirt by wearing it twice in a row so I didn’t have to wear it anymore. This time paired with the burgundy sweater and I must say, I really liked this combo, including my choice in shoes lol. Also, cheating a bit, I added some tights underneath because it was THAT cold.
Items chosen: Leggings | Olive Sweater
Simple outfit again. Leggings and hoodie/sweater. Another cheat day, I wore my pleather jacket because we were going to be outside and it was raining and very* cold. Another one of my go-to outfits when I need extra warmth.
Items chosen: Jeans | Burgundy Sweater
Simple outfit, weather outside was terrible so we took photos inside.
Items chosen: Jeans | Butterfly Sleeve Top | Beige Cardigan
Tired of the jeans, I decided to wear them back-to-back. You can kind of see how they sag on me, which is a shame. I went with the butterfly sleeve top/cardigan combo for warmth, I don’t remember leaving my house that day lol.
Items chosen: Leggings |Leopard Print Top | Beige Cardigan
This was for another school day, and also a day to be running errands so I was going to be in and out of the house. Super comfy, and I thought the top and the cardigan went well together despite being in the same color family.
Items chosen: Leggings | Olive Top | Beige Cardigan
Last outfit! I made it!
This is another one of my favorite outfits from this challenge. I feel like this outfit specifically made me step out of my comfort zone even more by forcing me to use different colors together. I was pleased with this outfit that day. Olive became a favorite color of mine this season and I love the bright white Adidas shoes.
I would have liked to have some kind of color palette but I don’t have enough of the basics to do that. Even so, I liked that most of the clothes were fall colors and/or clothes one would probably wear during the season.
It was a bit boring wearing the same clothes for 10 days, and I know Courtney felt the same way. However, it was nice to have my outfits already prepared, so I didn’t have to think hard about what to wear. I was out the door very quickly on days when I was running late, so this challenge came in handy in that aspect.
Overall, I think I would try this challenge again in warmer weather because I realized some days I wasn’t able to layer certain clothes together. With winter practically here it has gotten very cold, and some days I craved more layers, lol. Luckily I was at home for most of those 10 days, so it wasn’t a big deal, but something to think about if I do it again.
