WINTER 10×10 OUTFIT 6

SOURCES // high neck blouse – H&M Conscious, made from organic cotton (similar eco-friendly) // Clyde pant – Elizabeth Suzann, made in Nashville (other colors, fabric) // coat – H&M, old (similar eco-friendly) // chelsea boots – Loeffler Randall, old (similar made responsibly) // mini purse – Baggu, made in USA // travel tote – Everlane, made responsibly (similar) // beanie – Bridge & Burn, made in USA 

I don’t know if I’ve ever worn my Clyde pants with boots before.  It seems like such a no-brainer, but in a warm climate, sometimes things like this just escape me.  I was a little worried this outfit skewed too formal for my comfort zone with the boots, but a beanie makes it a little more casual.  I also broke the red lipstick today, opting for a brown-nude that I had a free sample of.  I immediately felt that it washed me out and layered on this Burt’s Bee’s balm over it for a little more pink.

SOURCES // tee – Everlane, made responsibly // wide leg jeans – J.Crew, secondhand (similar made responsibly) // sneakers – Converse // coat – H&M, old (similar eco-friendly) // lip crayon in Napa Vineyard – Burt’s Bees // sunnies – Ray-Ban

I barely wore my coat this day, because it was gorgeous again.  This outfit would be great in the summer, too.  On paper, I thought this outfit would be too monochromatic (in a weird way), but I actually think it has enough contrast to work, and a red lip never hurts.  Hi butt!

I kept the lipstick more subtle this day because I broke my unspoken rule of keeping one color element per outfit.  I really like this purple with this rust, though.  I reached for the bandana out of an impulse for variety–I was gonna go for my necklace, but realized I already wore it with this top.  It feels like a very organic color combo that might be found in nature.  This day was gorgeous and in the 70s, so it was nice to shed the coat for a bit.  I even felt like the boots were overkill.  One thing I am really appreciating is the look of a skinny ankle peaking out from under wide leg pants.  There’s something so funny and playful about it.

Does anyone know how to do a proper turtleneck bob?  I swear, whenever I try it, my hair pops out in the front like this within 30 seconds.  I even tried using a ponytail holder, but just ended up weighing it all down in the back.  Anyway, I have serious Hayley Nahman-envy.  This look is one of my chunkier, and I don’t like it as much as Outfit 2, probably because there’s no definition around the waist.  While these pants normally help me look a little taller, covering up the waist has the opposite effect.  It’s definitely statement-making, but I like that the Chucks are still low-key.  I wish I had thrown on some lipstick!

I’m closing out this challenge with an outfit I’m really comfortable in, and one I’ve probably worn before.  I did finally “cheat” by grabbing a cardigan this day–it wasn’t quite cold enough for the coat I’d selected as my accessory, but I wanted a little layer.  I’m definitely over these pants for a while.  In fact, I wonder if I do really need another pair of wide leg pants in the mix, which was a”gap” I’d identified when I did my Entire Wardrobe assessment.  It’s something I’ll be sitting on for a while, and I feel like this pant silhouette may just not be ideal for winter.  In the meantime, I’m happy to get back to normal jeans!

I’ll be re-capping this challenge overall on Monday!  If you participated, I’ve loved following along with you and seeing your challenges, discoveries, and really cute outfits.  Thank you so much for sharing your journey!

    Love those khaki colored pants–I never figured out how to wear khaki pants (it wasn’t a neutral that fit in my closet, if that makes sense), but I think you nailed it–with brown, stripes and creme!
