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!
