10×10 outfit challenge | Spring edition

I have seen this challenge going around for a while and it really caught my interest. The idea is to pick ten pieces from your wardrobe and mix them into ten outfits that you use each for one day for ten days. This challenge is such a great way to get creative with your wardrobe and for me it just came as a perfect opportunity to style my clothes in ways that I normally wouldn’t. And also I got to kick my comfort zones ass a little, hah.

So now before get into the challenge here are the ground rules/instructions for you who have never heard of this but you got just as pumped for it as I did:

  1. Pick 10 pieces from your wardrobe (accessorizes etc. are not included, I for example did not include my hat, watch and tights into my ten pieces)
  2. Style those ten items into ten different looks
  3. Use ten days to do it
  4. Have fun and don’t take it too seriously, this is a great chance to get creative!

Obviously rules are made to be broken so don’t take them too seriously just like I didn’t. Now let’s take a look at my ten pieces I chose for this challenge and then, I will introduce the ten outfits I came up with after lots and lots of planning yay!

2 pair of shoes,  3 tops + a cardigan, 2 bottoms and a dress

Outfit 1 and 2

Outfit 3 and 4

Outfit 5 and 6

Outfit 7 and 8

Outfit 9 and 10

 

So there you have my ten outfits. I am pretty happy how they turned out. I could have been more creative and maybe could have tried to get out of my comfort zone more but this was a good start. And I loved doing this whole challenge so look forward to another one once summer comes.

Ps. Let me know which were your favourite looks and clothing combos!!  Also sorry for such a horrible lightning and editing, I tried but the sun just wasn’t on my side.

My 6 winter to spring wardrobe must haves

We are already on the third month of the year which should mean spring knocking on the door but no, at least here where I live temperatures are all over the place. Few weeks ago I was sure that spring would come soon and now all of sudden it feels like I am living in Antarctic. It’s SO cold, about -20°C and I am not even exaggerating. So since the weather can’t be trusted and spring seems to be far away still I thought I could share my current wardrobe must haves. A girl needs some key items in her wardrobe to rescue from the coldness right?

1. Big and cozy scarf

Scarves are a must have during any season basically. I either throw it over shoulders carelessly (at least I am trying okay hah) or just wrap multiple times to fight the coldness. I wouldn’t survive a day in the cold without something to wrap around my neck, it’s just the truth.

2. Ankle boots to the rescue from snow

If I could I would wear sneakers all around the year, but sadly these days just always come when the ground is frozen and there is too much snow. And when these days come ankle boots are the ones I turn to, they are perfect for any weather really. They keep my feet warm when it’s cold and when it rains they protect my lil toes from getting wet. These are the kinda shoes that everyone needs in their wardrobe.

3. The cosiest and warmest sweater

Everyone needs that one sweater that feels like you have your cozy and warm blanket from bed wrapped around you. And by one I mean like at least five obviously, oops. I am a sweater kinda person (but who isn’t). They are the must have of all must haves in my closet during winter and spring too. Because lets just face it – warm sweater goes with any kind of weather. You can wear either light jacket or warm coat with it, you can match a pretty skirt or jeans with it, anything goes.

4. Smart  trousers

In my opinion jeans are overrated. They won’t keep my legs warm when it’s cold and the coziness is nothing compared to trousers. And cold weather is all about coziness right?

5. Brixton hat

This is a trend that has been around for a while now and I am pretty sure that it’s here to stay. It took me forever to get my hands on a brixton styled hat and finally after long search I got one to add in my wardrobe. It has become my go to headwear, I rarely wear beanies anymore since this one warms my head just as much! I can’t wait for the weather to get little more warm so I could style this with everything that I have in mind hehe.

6. The neutral handbag that goes with everything

And last but not least, a handbag. This is one of these things that you do need all year around but I find myself reaching for this specific one more during cold seasons. It’s just the perfect add for the classy look that I seek for. When it’s summer and warm, I am more carefree and backpack kind of girl.

So there you have my six wardrobe must haves during this confusing weather. All these pieces work during winter but also when it gets little warmer, which I can’t wait for. I am sick of all the layers.

What are your current wardrobe must haves?
