The first mini 10×10 has come to an end!
A quick recap of the items that comprised my 10:
- Maurice’s Wide Leg Pant

- Kilque B. Jean
- Old Navy Short
- H&M Chambray Shirt
- H&M Blouse
- H&M White T
- Phil Love Tank
1 Dress, 1Topper
- Maurice’s Dress
- F21 Kimono
Here’s what they looked like put together:
What was my intention of completing this challenge?
It has been over a year since I did any type of capsule wardrobe, so I thought this would be a fun little challenge to incorporate new purchases into my seasonal wardrobe.
Did my clothes work for the weather?
Well, my only guideline was that I needed some lightweight pieces for weigh in days. I ended up selecting primarily lightweight pieces. This really worked in my favor as we were under a heat advisory pretty much all 10days.
Were there any pieces included that felt like mistakes?
No individual piece felt like a mistake, however, I do wish I would have put a touch more thought into this. I literally threw it together Sunday evening in 10-15minutes.
Which item/outfit was my favorite?
I am in love with the Maurice’s wide leg beachy pant. They are high waisted & cinch nicely. The pattern is fun, but not too busy & they’re roomy enough the pattern doesn’t get distorted over my curves. Most importantly they have great pockets!
Which item/outfit was outside my comfort zone?
Not much is outside my comfort zone, but the kimono can be tricky. Especially for work. I did get several positive comments & compliments so I think I could brave it again.
“It really adds an edge to your look.”
Would I change anything?
Take more time to pick out my pieces.
What did I learn?
I didn’t really learn anything per se, but I was reminded it’s fun & good to take some risks.
Like the shorts ensemble with the hat was worn to a funeral. Not something you would expect, but I was appropriately covered while not unbareably hot in the afternoon heat. This got a lot of compliments as well.
And there you have it. I’ll be sharing my next 10×10 next post.
PS I borrowed these questions from Un-Fancy.
