Remixing Fall Clothes

The Fall 10×10 has ended and here’s a recap of what I wore…

During a 10×10, you take 10 items of clothing (including shoes) and remix them into 10 different outfits over the course of 10 days. It’s a great way to try wearing old favorites in new ways. Here were my picks again:

I ended up pretty happy with my selection, which included 2 shirts, 1 dress, 1 jacket, 1 sweater, 2 pairs of pants, 1 skirt, and 2 pairs of shoes (I don’t usually include basics so I used a couple t-shirts as layers as well). I also got a new pair of leopard loafers of Poshmark halfway through the challenge so I threw them in too, as a way to figure out how to style them (they’re old Madewell but Madewell’s current version is here). See how I styled my 10 selections below.

Here’s a recap of some of the things I wore:

I tried layering my Vetta sweater in a couple of different ways to keep warm…

Clearly my thrifted tan J. Crew blazer was a favorite…

And I felt like *me* in all three of these business-casual outfits, which never happens!! Also because Instagram always asks, here is a link to my olive green dress pants 🙂

Main takeaways: I’ve been wanting a camel colored sweater for a while, but my tan blazer stood in just fine and I think I finally figured out how to dress it down. I don’t usually wear skirts but this thrifted tweed skirt is my new favorite–so I think I’ll go looking for more a-line skirts in the future (versus pencil skirts, which I tend to find constraining). Overall, it was fun to take my business casual wardrobe (largely thrifted over the last 2 years!) for a test drive, and I’m feeling ready to tackle academic conference wear this week as a result.

If you’re interested in trying a wardrobe challenge, a 10×10 is a fun place to start–or you can pick an item and try styling it 5 different ways for a week! If you do one or want ideas, let me know!
