The Smart Casual 10 x 9 Challenge

|

I’m doing a closet challenge…the Smart Casual 10 x 9 Challenge #smartcasual10x9!  You might be thinking what is a 10 x 9 Challenge?  It is where you wear 10 items for 9 days.  You only wear those 9 items for 10 straight days.  I have seen these challenges on other blogs and they not only look fun, but it is a way to really test your capsule wardrobe to see if it works for you and your lifestyle.

A couple of weeks ago I created this Smart Casual mini capsule wardrobe using 10 pieces, which makes 9 outfits. I had an overwhelming response to this, with many of you saying you really liked this capsule and some of you want more of them!

Mary with @this_littlecloset on Instagram, who uses a capsule wardrobe in her closet and also follows the Classy Yet Trendy capsule collections, had the idea of doing a #smartcasual10x9 challenge. This challenge uses pieces from the Smart Casual mini capsule blog post and wearing the 9 outfits in the blog post each day of the challenge!

  1. I have enjoyed Mary’s posts on Classy Yet Trendy. I also enjoy your mini wardrobe challenges. 72, retired, still want to look nice. Body type is not suited to active wear outside of the gym. Prefer a thrifty wardrobe. Follow all your posts and Instagram.

  2. Thank you for this wonderful mini capsule! Thank you also for the “shout out” here and on Instagram. I am having a lot of fun with this challenge.

    Thanks to the wonderful guidance you have given with the previous capsules. Now, I have a cohesive assortment and can #shopmycloset!
