10 x 10 Summer Challenge: What I Wore In 10 Days

| |

I recently participated in the 10×10 Summer Challenge #summer10x10, hosted by Lee, from Stylebee.  For 10 days I put my Summer capsule wardrobe to the test by doing a “10×10 Challenge“.  Whether you use a capsule wardrobe system or just want to test your wardrobe, you can do this challenge by wearing 10 items, 10 ways for 10 straight days.  This type of challenge not only motivates you to make the most of your clothes, but you discover which clothes in your closet you love to wear the most.  If you read my post a couple of weeks ago, 10×10 Challenge: Summer 2018, I shared which 10 items I planned to use in the challenge.  I also shared how a 10×10 challenge works.  If you want to try a 10×10 challenge yourself, comment below and let me know!

This was the 4th challenge I participated in.  This challenge tested a few of my favorite clothes in my Summer capsule wardrobe.  The key to making a challenge like this and for a full capsule wardrobe work, is to use basic essentials in mostly solid, neutral colors.  Examples of basic essentials are a dark navy striped top, gray boyfriend cardigan, chambray shirt, white button-up shirt, white tee, black tee, gray tee, blue jeans, black ankle pants or gray jeans.  I chose to include both clothes and shoes in this 10×10 Challenge and add one accent color, the blush pink tee.

I posted all of the following 10×10 challenge outfit photos on my Instagram account.  Check out what I wear from my capsule wardrobe, plus more on Instagram.

Here’s what I enjoyed the most about this 10×10 Challenge:

My favorite 10×10 Challenge item: it has to be the Boden Striped Tee!  It is one of the most worn pieces in my capsule wardrobe!  I love the striped pattern and the fit.

My favorite outfit: It’s a toss-up between Day 3 and Day 5.  I think those are my favorites because of the tops!

Have you ever done a 10×10 Challenge?  Are you thinking about it?  What clothes would you include?

  1. You have made my life sooo much easier! Took your 10 x 10 summer challenge on vacation. Ran out of vacation day before clothing changes. Everything is easy, comfortable, stylish. How can you give away half your closet and have more to wear? Looking forward to your fall capsule!!! Thanks

  2. Thank you!
    Made my life simple & stylish! LOVE basic/neutral pieces! Looking forward for your Fall capsule! 😊

  3. My favorite outfit of your 10 days was definitely Day #4. I loved the repetition of the curve of the blouse ruffles with the curved scallops on the shorts. I also thought the two shades of blue looked lovely together.

    I have done something like a 10 x 10 challenge when I spent two weeks in Europe at the beginning of the summer. It ended up being a struggle because there was such variety in the weather. But the experience strengthened my interest in cultivating a solid core wardrobe.
