Summer 10×10 challenge

It’s Friday! And I’ve got that Friday feeling, because I have the whole weekend off work, so Glyn and I will be spending some time together this weekend.

Before we do that though, I’d like to take the time today to share my 10 pieces for the Summer 10×10 challenge that kicks off next week.

The concept is really simple: 10 pieces to make 10 outfits over 10 days.

I’ve taken part in the last two, and really enjoyed them as well as finding some new outfit combinations and silhouettes that I loved.

It’s all meant as a bit of fun, no harsh rules and regulations, if you need to swap something – that’s OK, if you have a work uniform so will be wearing your outfits only after work (this is what I tend to do!) – that’s OK too! It’s a lot of fun, and the best part of the whole challenge is the lovely community over on Instagram. You can follow along or join in by using the hashtags #summer10x10, #stylebee10x10 and #unfancyremix.

So, here’s what I’m including this time around!


  1. cami (old)
  2. striped linen tee
  3. rust tee (ended up getting this colour instead of burgundy for my Summer capsule)
  4. kimono (old) – similar
  5. denim skirt *fit note – size up, these come up small and also really short! I sized up so I can pull it down and wear it on my hips rather than waist
  6. bardot top (old)
  7. boyfriend jeans
  8. birkenstock arizona
  9. metallic trainers – silver version
  10. slip dress (old)

In total, I included:

  • 4 tops
  • 2 bottoms
  • 1 dress
  • 1 jacket
  • 2 pairs of shoes

Once again, I’m sticking with a monochrome palette with just one colourful piece thrown in for good measure. I find this is the easiest way to work with these challenges, as you could find yourself restricted for options by including too many colourful or printed pieces.

The weather forecast when I last checked looks good, a few sunny days with temperatures around 20°C. This is the UK however, so my denim jacket will be on standby. I didn’t choose to include it in my 10 pieces, but if the weather calls for it I’ll still be throwing it on over my outfits.

*As usual, any work uniform, loungewear and sportswear carries on as normal and is not included in the 10 pieces.*

Are you taking part this time? If so, leave a link in the comments where you’ll be sharing your outfits! I love to follow this challenge as well as participate myself, and as mentioned before everyone is super supportive of each other which is lovely : )

Have a great weekend, I’ll see you on Monday for the first outfit!
