SPRING 2017 10x10: LOOKS 9 & 10

It's only Tuesday and already I feel like it's been a long week! Tomorrow is my last work day and then the hubby and I are driving down to Florida for a wedding :) We're breaking up the trip by stopping in Nashville for a little bit then staying at my mom's house in Atlanta. I'm excited to have a few days off and celebrate with friends and family. 

To speed things up and not belabor my 10x10 for much longer, I've decided to share a two for one! Below are some thoughts on my final two looks.

| SILK BLOUSE | - This has been a crucial piece in my 10x10 and wardrobe. Having a silk blouse has been wonderful for any fancier occasions. It can be dressed up or dressed down and is a very versatile basic.


| NEW COLOR FORMULA | - Through this challenge (my last couple of outfits to be specific) I've started to gravitate towards a blush + white + cognac color formula. To me this combo fully embodies spring and feels refreshing. Normally my tastes in colors change but I think I'm finally starting to establish my colors for the many springs to come!

| DRESS OVER JEANS | - this is my favorite style breakthrough. Dresses over pants! I especially love this look because it feels like an oversized shirt. I will admit some dresses look more naturals over pants than others but shirt dresses work every time. 

| REFINED & CASUAL | - the top and shoes in this outfit feel more refined while the raw hem and bag are more casual and relaxed. I haven't focused on combining contrasting elements in my 10x10 looks but have done this more in the past. I think with all outfits it's about finding balance and finding that balance that works with your style.
