After I first participated in the Summer 10×10 challenge hosted by Lee from Style Bee and Caroline from Un-Fancy, I started counting the days till the next one. It was so much fun!

If you really think about it, you don’t even wear the majority of your clothes. You wake up in the morning and are promptly convinced that you have nothing to wear.
