Top 10 Remix
Double post today, because I wanted to kick off my plan for April. This may or may not be a good idea, but I can't resist any kind of fun style challenge, so I'm going to at least give it a go. You can read all the details over at Sarah's Real Life.
The point is to pick 10 items that are "so me" and then include at least one of those items in each of your outfits for April. Since I'm working with about 20% of my current wardrobe (Pregnancy Style Challenge!!), my picks are based on what currently fits (and what I assume will still fit for the rest of the month). By necessity, these tend to be items that are both loved and frequently worn. If I was doing this any other time, there would be a lot less neutral and a lot more crazy patterns in my top 10. Also, April is a tricky month, because there is about equal chance we will have snow or 85 degrees on any given day. Maybe both within the same week? So I think these pieces should work either way.
Small asterisk - I added the striped shoes assuming they fit when they arrive in the mail. I might swap them out if I decide to return them. The floral scarf isn't exact, but I wanted to include it in my collage. This is the one I'm using. The other items are all exact, I think.
Big asterisk - I'm 100% aware that I might drop out at some point, just because I have no idea what the next 4 weeks will bring. It's entirely possible (though not super likely) that my kid could be born at the end of April, or that I will just be so enormous and miserable that I have no ability to get dressed. We shall see!
