Ok, here’s the deal.
It’s Friday. I’m a day behind in the #summer10x10 challenge. Today is outfit 9, it should be the final one, but I’m forgiving myself for this because the challenge is meant to be fun. I’ve spoken about this before, but sometimes it’s easy to get wrapped up in an exciting little challenge like this only for life to get in the way and put things on hold, even just for a day.
So yes, this is outfit 9 and I’ll be sharing my 10th and final 10×10 look at some point over the weekend, before the wrap up post on Monday. I hope everyone has had as much fun as I have with this challenge, and as always the best part is the wonderful community over on Instagram. You can catch up on all the outfits from everyone participating by searching the hashtags #unfancyremix, #stylebee10x10 and of course #summer10x10.
Let’s have a quick run down of today’s outfit.
Today has been another working day, so again this is an outfit I’ll be wearing for just a few hours after work. We’re going out for a few drinks with friends and to watch some live music, so I wanted something a little fancy but still suitable to be squished into a sweaty pub!
Style notes: Oh, lace and denim how I love you. I’ve worn a similar uniform already in this challenge, just a different silhouette by pairing the pretty off the shoulder top with boyfriend jeans. Well, I liked it so much I decided to try it again, this time with the denim skirt. It’s not a combination I would have originally put together, because of the billowy shape of the top I didn’t like how it fell over the skirt, until I thought of doing my usual styling trick of a simple front tuck. Wow, did it transform this look! I particularly like the delicate, bohemian top contrasted against the faded black denim skirt, it really toughens up the piece and brings a whole new level to the top. To continue along the bohemian theme, I added tassel earrings and my fedora. For the evening, I’ll probably add my denim jacket over the top to keep the chill off, and also to add another denim element which I think will be fun!
So there we are! Outfit 9!
I really love this combination and I’m so glad I tried it. I guess that’s what this challenge is all about, and even if you don’t set out with a particular style goal, you may just surprise yourself and discover something new anyway : )
