We’re a week out from the end of my spring 10×10 experiment where I wore 10 pieces of clothing for 10 days, so today I’ll be recapping my experience with the challenge/experiment/what else can I call it to make it sound less pressure-y, and sharing some of the things I’m taking away as I move forward with my closet. (This was probably an awful sentence to read for anyone into the English language and its grammar – Sorry! I love long sentences and use commas where my teachers tell me I ought not to.)
It’s the last day of this thing!!!!! Apologies for this belated post – I had kind of a rough go of it last night and spent some time crying my eyes out, which is possibly a post for another time if I ever decide to talk about this strained mother-daughter relationship o’ mine. But here we are, and better late than never, yeah?
ONE MORE DAY!!!! One day more like the Les Mis song? Today we’ve got another outfit that pushes me a bit out of my comfort zone in forcing me to combine pieces I thought wouldn’t work well together, and then upon finding them on my body I decide they do actually look kind of alright!
The last 3 days of the 10×10 are upon us! Hallelujah praise the clothing minimalist lord. Today’s outfit is entirely a product of me being too lazy to shower and then just thinking, “Well, what can I wear that’ll go with my baseball cap?”
Day 7! That’s, like, 3/4 of the way through this damned thing, right? I’m waiting anxiously to regain access to my full wardrobe again, but I’m also kind of enjoying how this 10×10 pushes me a bit out of my comfort zone. I never would’ve paired a button-up with these pants, because I assume it would look awful, but I actually like the look of it! So that’s at least one thing this challenge is good at – helping me discover new outfitz~* (in the midst of crying about my lack of shoe choices).
It is so blissful getting to wear anything you want and have the whole of your closet available, lemme tell ya. But after a weekend away from this 10×10, we’re back! Onto the last half of this thing –
It was raining today and thank heavens for that, because it means I could use it as an excuse to wear a different pair of shoes!
Well, well, well, look what we have here – Day 4 of 10×10, complete with a shitty Photoshop “graphic” I made because I wanted my image headers to be consistently weird looking, I guess. To be real, I am, uh, kind of already getting bored with these outfits. I guess it’s nice not having to think about it and, like, have the headspace to rush about your life without devoting too much thought to what you’re wearing, but – I don’t know. We’ll see how we get along in the coming days.
Day 3 is upon us, I’m onto my second pair of pants, and I’m realizing that I did not pick enough pants for this challenge!! I love bottoms (as in, articles of clothing that go on the bottom half of your body, not as in asses, although I like those too) way more than tops, and yet I skewed the wrong way in making this mini capsule wardrobe. Something to remember for next time.
Anyway, onto the outfit –
It’s Day 2 of 10×10! I sound excited now, but watch me be all, “It’s Day 6 of 10×10… I haven’t seen the light in many moons…” crawling on a dirty floor dramatic in a few days lol. OK, onto the outfit:
