SPRING 2017 10x10: LOOK 8

Almost. Done. Here is look number 8 from spring 10x10! In general I feel that I'm becoming more experimental with my layers. The amount of white in this look makes me a little anxious but overall I love it! Now lets dive into some details :)

| TUCKED IN | - if you remember from look 7 I did not tuck in this tank top and I kind of regretted it. Well for this look we went full tuck and I'm very glad I did. The proportions just feel so much better. Funny how a tucked in shirt can drastically change how you feel about a look!

| NATURAL BAG | - if you couldn't tell, I absolutely love this round market tote from Mur Lifestyle. I'm been very into woven handbags lately and I'm thinking of expanding my collection. I love the organic element it adds to looks and you can find some bags with absolutely beautiful wood tones. Here are some of the bamboo & woven bags that I've currently got my eye on.

| SIMILARITIES | - really this look isn't much different from look 7 (yes, I'm just realizing this now). It has the same bottoms, top & shoes. The only main difference is the cardigan vs the open shirt dress and how I tucked in my shirt. And yet, these looks have completely different vibes. Look 7 feels more safe to me. My tried and true outfit formula growing up (and still a little today) was a cardigan + top + skinny jeans + flat shoe. Look 7 got a little upgrade with the wide leg pants but other than that still pretty basic. While look 8 feels more daring (for me) and much more in line with where I want my style to go. High waist + tucked in top + wide leg + long open layer (insert: shirt dress, duster, coat, etc.) There's nothing wrong with look 7 but I definitely feel more comfortable in look 8.

outfit: acne studios shirt dress (purchased secondhand, similar from need supply) / rose top from madewell (old, similar from ilana kohn) / jesse kamm sailor pants (size: 6) / everlane modern oxford (size: 7.5) / mur lifestyle round market tote (s/o similar on etsy)

Thank you everyone for stopping by! Also, how do you like this new format? Outfit pictures first then outfit notes? Or do you prefer the old ways? If you have an opinion let me know in the comments below!
