Woohoo! We’re at the halfway point! :)
In case you missed it, here’s what’s going on: My friend Lee of Style Bee and I are hosting a remix challenge: 10 pieces of clothing, 10 outfits, 10 days.
It’s not to late to join in! We’re all working on our own time table here — some are wrapping up, some are just starting, some are right in the middle. So hop on in — here’s my quick start guide.
About this time in the challenge, I usually find myself struggling to come up with creative outfits.
But it’s funny. This time around, I’ve let go of the idea that I should come up with ultra-creative, super-unique looks. Instead, my goal is simple: I just want to feel comfortable and feel like myself in each outfit.
Take this outfit, for example. It’s quite similar to Monday’s outfit. So at first, I tried to shake things up — I grabbed my pink crop top and put on top of this dress. It actually looked great. The crop top hit at the right spot and the mix of boxy crop top with fitted skirt was spot on.
But the outfit didn’t feel like me. At all.
So even though it might have been a fun way to show how to mix things up, I opted for this basic look instead. One that felt like me. :)
Anyway, today is another typical day — gym time, working from home, and errands. Then later, we’re headed out to dinner with two of our best friends. Hooray Friday! So this comfortable, non-wrinkling dress should work all day long.
STATEMENT NECKLACE | Well, as much as I love going accessory-free, this basic outfit needed something to jazz it up. :) So I went tone on tone and pulled out this old (amazing) beaded necklace.
PATTERN PLAY | This might be a stretch, I know. But I like the pattern play between the striped dress and the spotted necklace — especially since they are in the same color palette.
MINIMAL STYLING | I’m almost laughing here because there’s practically zero styling to this outfit — so it’s kind of hard to come up with styling notes. But I suppose that’s a lesson that a great dress + great boots can just work. No fancy styling needed.

So tell me are your outfits starting to look a little similar? Are you pushing yourself to come up with unique looks or are you just happy if each outfit feels like “you”?
