Summer 2018 10x10 Challenge

Have you heard of the 10x10 Challenge? I've followed Lee of Style Bee for awhile but I've never tried it myself. There's a summer challenge starting next Friday, July 27 and I've decided to participate for the first time.

Lee has a much more in-depth explanation on her blog but in a nutshell you pick 10 items from your closet and wear them for 10 days. I've loosely been following a capsule this summer but narrowing it down to only 10 things is pretty extreme. I've chosen 4 tops, 3 bottoms, 2 pairs of shoes, and 1 outer layer. It's been such a hot summer I don't know if I'll even need the jacket but if it rains or something I'll be prepared. Accessories don't count and you can interchange those things freely, so if I get cold I can switch up with a shawl or scarf if I need to.

I'm only including 1 handmade item this time. I still am rather new to sewing my own clothes again and for this challenge every piece needs to be able to interchange freely with every other item. I don't have that many handmade things that are that versatile. I am planning to do 10 consecutive days so my challenge will include a weekend (hence, the shorts).

I am really looking forward to the challenge and seeing what everyone else is wearing. You can follow the hashtag #SUMMER10x10 on instagram. I'll be posting under that hashtag and also #kcsummer10x10 just to keep myself organized.
