Well, I made it to the finish line! Four weeks of the 10x10 challenge, and a four-week trial of my spring capsule wardrobe. Here's how it went...
Navigating the Challenge During Our #StayHome Adventure
When I go to the store, these days, I often try to go early in the morning. There are fewer people to avoid, and a greater selection of the things I need to buy.
But it's often cooler during the early part of the morning, so once again, I needed my outerwear cardigan. It actually was still a bit chilly even with it on.
Here's What I Wore...

Results: The 10x10 Challenge & My Spring Capsule Wardrobe
(1) Though I hadn't intend thought I'd end up wearing it, at first, I loved the variety my rust cardigan added, and would like to make it an intentional part of my spring capsule wardrobe, going forward.
(2) I included an olive green scarf as an accessory, which I love! But I wore it so many times, I began to get tired of it.
So, I bought one more, in a brown floral print, and will be happy to have that one, too, going forward.
(3) I have two pairs of earrings I used with this capsule. I am happy with them, but might like one or two more.
I'm interested in trying both a muted gold pair and a silver one, so I ordered a set of hoops I'll be trying soon.
(4) I think I need slightly shorter tops. I tried a few times to solve that problem by tucking them in, but may need to give in and actually hem them. :)
(5) The big question is whether or not I was able to create ten outfit formulas that work well for me.
I don't think I have ten perfect ones, unfortunately, but I think with all the possible variations, I can get to ten that I really like.
And I did discover a few that I love. So I consider this challenge a success.
My Ten Best Outfits
Speaking of possible outfit formulas, I want to mention the outfit I wore on Easter.
While it wasn't a true outfit, because I would not have worn it outside the house, it was an experiment, of sorts, to see if I can wear that look. And I think I can!
It's a kind of empire dress look or a cropped top + long skirt idea, and I think, with straight lines, and without the slim silhouette I usually wear now, I could choose that outfit formula.
So that's yet another reason I'm glad I got dressed for church that day, even though I wouldn't be leaving the house.
Now, I have one more thing to share with you. I gave you my best ten, but I have to confess that there are at least a few of those outfits I won't wear again without changing them in some way.
But here are my absolute faves - the ones I know I will wear again...
