Hello friends! I am so excited to show you my recap of the #Summer10x10 Challenge! It is my third time trying the #10x10Challenge and this has been my most successful one to date. You can see my #Spring10x10 recap for this year here. I love that Lee of Style Bee created this challenge and continues to host it every season. I love that there is a huge community that comes together to do this challenge, creating new friends and adding more inspiration for others to see and learn. A challenge doesn’t come without challenges, right? Duh, haha. A couple of my personal challenges are- I am a stay at home mom, of a toddler, boy, physically active and always has food in his face. I had to wash my items a couple of times because of this. It’s ok though, because I love him so much it doesn’t bother me! Another challenge I was afraid to face was my boy getting sick, this is something I can’t control and he is priority! But thank God he hasn’t been sick in a couple of months, making this challenge easier! Another challenge is since I am a SAHM, I don’t have a place to go to every day. I have to put extra effort to make plans to go out and get off my house clothes and get dressed. At the end of the challenge I was so happy with the results and I genuinely loved every outfit I put together! Keep scrolling to see daily pictures, my 10 items, bonus outfits and recap questions!
My 10 Items
I love every single one of these items on my challenge! Super versatile pieces, some could be paired 4 times. This time around I really worked towards staying with a cohesive color palette that would make pairing much easier, and a color palette I would love when looking at the pieces from far away!

2 Bonus Outfits
Here are 2 extra outfits I put together from my 10 items for my challenge. This makes me feel that I was extra successful on the Summer Challenge and that the pieces I chose were highly versatile.
1| What were your #Summer10x10 Challenge goals?
To find the most versatile pieces that would create more than 10 outfits. Creating outfits that are realistic for my lifestyle. Using this challenge to make myself go out more and socialize. There’s no better feeling than getting ready and dressed even though there is nothing special happening!
2| What did you learn about your personal style?
I learn that I love white/bone colors. Most of my picks were this color. I learned that I love t-shirts more than I did before, probably because I know how to style them in a way that doesn’t look to basic.
3| What was your 10×10 star piece?
I feel the star pieces was my Madewell dress. I was surprised that I could style more than just a dress. This inspired others to do the same with this dress!
4| Were there any pieces you would consider a mistake?
I don’t consider any a mistake! It’s more that this pieces was not practical for my daily life and more for the weekend out by myself. The Everlane Wide Leg in Bone. I couldn’t wear this through the week because it would have been dirty in one second with my toddler! Haha.
5|Were your items weather appropriate?
Yes they were! I live in Florida, so it is very hot. I wish I had shorts to make it less hot for me, but I haven’t found I pair I love!
6| Which outfit was your favorite?
I would say Day 7 and Day 9! I felt the most confident on these days. Day 1 and 2 I loved too. I loved all the days!
7| What items didn’t get paired?
I tried to pair all of the items as much as possible! The good thing about having a curated closet is that you love every piece you own.
8| What was the hardest part about this 10×10?
The days I was too tired to get dressed or didn’t have anywhere to go was the hardest for me. Still I got dressed for 5 minutes at least to go to the store!
9| What was your favorite part of the challenge?
My favorite part of this challenge was documenting the outfits each day in a more efficient way! Also, seeing I was being successful with the pieces I chose made me very happy.
Excited for #Fall10x10 in a few months! Join me next time!
