2019 Fall 10×10 Capsule Wardrobe and Outfits

October 14, 2019

The other week I went joined in on another 10×10 style challenge where you make 10 outfits from 10 pieces.

Aptly named the #fauxfall10x10, this challenge celebrated the fact that fall weather can vary greatly depending on where you live. Most participants counted tops and bottoms in their count but let shoes, outerwear, and accessories flow in freely.

It’s possible that my minimalist makeup is a result of being a novice. Or maybe it’s all those years my dad told me I didn’t need it. Either way, here’s what I own and why I wear it.
