Fall 10×10 Challenge Recap

Wardrobe Capsule

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! A couple of the outfits I created were not my usual style, maybe even little out of my comfort zone. Nevertheless, I actually loved them, so they will be definitely go-to outfits. For example, here is one of them, where I wore a graphic t-shirt underneath a dress shirt:

dark jean with colorful slip-ons

It is great for the summer-fall transition when it still looks fresh and summery, but layers keep you warmer in cooler weather.

What is 10 x 10 Challenge?

For those who are new here, the 10×10 challenge is a seasonal event established by Lee in 2015. It encourages participants to pick 10 garments and create different outfits. The ten pieces include clothes and shoes, and don’t include handbags and accessories. Read more about it here.

Here are the 10 items I chose:

      Hi Leah, thank you for stopping by! The brand is Armani Exchange. I bought it in 2014, so it is very likely you find it in consignment stores! 🙂 good luck!
