SPRING 2017 10×10: LOOK 3

April 14, 2017 2 Comments

Only one more day to go before the weekend! I hope you all are having a nice week so far. This weekend it is supposed to get up to 80 degrees in Chicago! I’m hoping my sniffles and cough go away so I can enjoy the wonderfully warm weather.

Even though I’m bed ridden I’m happy to share look number 3 from my 10×10 challenge. If you have no idea what I’m talking about you can visit here to read about the 10×10 challenge and see my spring picks! I’m only about a third of the way through but I’m already loving how these looks are coming together.

Now lets dive into outfit number 3!

I really like this outfit but I’m not entirely convinced that it’s actually practical. I love all white looks but they make me super nervous at the same time. I feel like this look is just screaming for some coffee to be spilled on it. I’ve been eyeing a couple of white jumpsuits but if I have this feeling with an all white outfit combination, I might hold off and instead choose a darker color option. I’m also breaking all of the “no white before memorial day” rules with this look but I’m not a huge fan of fashion rules anyway. So my conclusion on this outfit is “meh” but I think it was a fun experiment!

| ACCESSORIES | – without the accessories and shoes in this look it would appear a little too sterile. The cognac bag and gold necklace were must haves to bring some warmth to this look. I love monochromatic looks and my “fake jumpsuit” trick but with whites it can be a little tricky.

| WHITE TEE | – yes I have a basic white tee as one of my 10×10 items! I’ve never had such a basic element in any of my challenges before. In the past I have always tried to incorporate more I guess you could say sophisticated items such as silk blouses. For my spring challenge,I kept trying to find another blouse to fill the last spot in my 10×10. Then I realized I just needed this basic crew neck. Sometimes you just need to revisit your basics and not overthink things 🙂

| PROPORTIONS | – so far this outfit shows of the slimming effect of the jesse kamm sailor pants the best. In my opinion you really can’t beat a fully tucked look especially in these pants. I love the shapes in this outfit but I think I would have loved in more with a striped or navy or black tee instead of the solid white. At least I found a combination that makes me feel comfortable and stylish at the same time. Even if I need to work on the colors a little bit!

outfit: everlane crew tee (size: small) / jesse kamm sailor pants (size: 6) / no6 clogs (peep-toe pair from garmentory and I absolutely love these, these and these!) / seaworthy necklace / sezanne handbag (similar from sezanne)

    I rarely wear white or even off-whites (mostly because I feel more at home in greys and black – and also because I’m fearful of stains:). But so lovely how the combination fits you here – and especially with that necklace. There too, I go way simpler (and silver), but love how the whole combination looks on you. Truly, a beautiful fit and inspiration for stretching my edges while still staying simple. Thank you!

    These pants are amazing on you! I was thinking of trying the Everlane version, but the more I see the Kamms on other ladies, the more I think I just need to save up for the real thing!
