Winter 8×8 Challenge Day 1

In case you don’t know what the 10×10 challenge is, check out what’s going on here.  For the next eight days (not including Fridays or weekends) I’m only wearing eight pieces of clothing.

I’m going to be posting everyday and talking about my outfit, first impressions, and styling notes. Super similar to what Caroline Joy does which is where I got the 10×10 idea from. So let’s get into it!

What I Wore

Jeans: Under $30

Boots

Hoops : Under $4

Turtleneck (Similar) Also here

First Impressions

Let me start off by saying the next seven days won’t have this amazing picture quality! I had a wonderful winter walk with my AMAZING photographer friend Hannah Fisher. She makes me feel like a freaking model! So a huge thank you to her for making the challenge start off on a great foot!

I work in an office on Mondays and it was a huge snowstorm so I opted for my fuzziest snow boots and my turtleneck. I’m not a huge jewelry girl, maybe that will change once I start wearing these pieces everyday, so the only extra that I opted for was my Apple watch that I wear daily and delicate hoop earrings.

Styling Notes

Monocromatic is in. I felt like the outfit really worked because there were different shades of blue. This challenge is already forcing me to be creative.

Dress for the weather. really wanted to wear one of the lighter sweaters but with the weather being cold, windy, and snowy in the morning and warm and sunny in the afternoon, I knew I needed to wear something that would work with both. Dress for what the weather is, not what you want it to be. Don’t worry, whatever you’re pining for will come soon enough.

 

See you all tomorrow with Outfit number 2!
