Summer 2018: 10x10 Challenge.

I thought it was time that I tried out another challenge and this one is only for 10 days so hopefully it won't be too - er - challenging!

The idea behind this challenge - in case it isn't patently obvious to you! - is to choose 10 items of clothing to wear over the next 10 days, ensuring that you don't repeat yourself and that you create 10 different outfits. I guess that if you have 10 dresses in your wardrobe that you can wear each day it would be quite straightforward, but my wardrobe mainly consists of separates and my "go-to" uniform is trousers and tops.


I chose seven tops as shown above and the following three pairs of trousers, so clearly I need to wear a few tops more than once. The items I selected are mainly cotton and linen and most are loose-fitting, as temperatures in Spain at the moment are in the mid to high 30s (that's degrees Centigrade), so being cool and comfortable is high on my list of priorities

Having chosen my ten items, I immediately realised that I had limited my options a bit by choosing two patterned tops and two pairs of patterned trousers, which clearly won't go together. If this was a holiday capsule I'd make some changes, but as I'm at home and can wash things over the next 10 days it won't really matter.

My plan is to post photos of my outfits, probably in two lots of five, so you can see how it worked out. If you decide to take part in this challenge please let me know how you get on.

The inspiration for doing this challenge came from Leanne of Classy Yet Trendy, who writes about capsule wardrobes and creates many different e-books. If you click on the above link you can find out more. So - anyone want to join me?
