Fall 2017 10×10 Challenge - Day 7

Welcome to Day 7 of the fall 10×10 Challenge.

In case you were wondering what the 10th item of my 10x10 was, there it is! (yes, I totally lied last week when I told you that the sweater was the last one, sorry!)

I'm not a fan of outerwear, I really just consider it as a protection from the elements, and not a part of my styling decisions.

I usually have a bunch of jackets lying around in my car, and I grab one whenever I need one. But if I had to choose only one, this jacket would be it. I saved to buy it, and have been wearing it for a little more than 10 years now. I've only started taking care of it a couple years ago so it's got the right amount of patina, without totally falling apart, though I should definitely take care of a couple holes and prevent them from expanding.

My Day 7 Outfit

Proportions are key.

I thought this outfit would never make it to the blog, because, honestly, I'm not in love with it. The color combo is perfect (to me) but a loose top with loose pants, that's a big no-no for my figure.

3 more outfits to go. Now I'm starting to be afraid I'm no longer gonna be able to mix things up enough...


Do you also wear outfits because you feel good in them, no matter if they don't actually look good? Tell me I'm not alone!

Fall 2017 10×10 Challenge - Day 6

Fall 2017 10×10 Challenge Look Day 6 by Conscious by Chloé

Happy Monday! I hope you had a blissful weekend!

We've made it to the second half of the 10×10 Challenge.

And I have to admit that it was really great not to have to wonder what to wear this morning when I got up!

My Day 6 Outfit

Wool, denim, and leather. I know what you're gonna say: way too easy!

After our adventurous weekend on the coast, Octave and I are worn out. So it was a relief to have a minimal selection to choose from to compose a cozy, yet cute little outfit to work, meet a friend for coffee, work some more and lounge on the couch (I may have undone a couple buttons for that last part).

Do you have a go-to outfit for those days when you don't really feel inspired?

Fall 2017 10×10 Challenge - Day 5

Fall 2017 10×10 Challenge Look Day 5 by Conscious by Chloé

This is Day 5 of the fall 10×10 Challenge.

Today feels a little like cheating because I spent most of the day in my yoga clothes. I recently found out that it's the best way for me to actually go to the gym. I got up, put on my workout clothes, and went to yoga. Since Octave also wanted to work out later in the afternoon, I stayed in that outfit all day while working from home (is it gross?) and now that we came back from our weight training session, I took a shower, and finally got dressed.

By now you've realized that I lied yesterday. I did not go to the gym at all, I stayed home and watched TV shows all evening.

And tonight I'm rewarding myself for today's efforts by attending a Poetry & Tarot event hosted by a friend at a local bookstore.

No new items here. Just a very precious (to me) necklace that my grandfather brought back to my grandmother from one of his many trips to Africa years ago. I inherited it from her and cherish it with all my heart.

Well, that was a short post!

I'm gonna take the weekend off since Octave and I are headed to the coast. So my outfit will probably consist of rain boots and waterproof everything.

I wish you all a happy weekend. And don't forget to check out the following hashtags on Insta for more lean closet inspiration: #FALL10x10, #StyleBee10x10 and #UnFancyRemix.


Do you have any plans for the weekend?
