Fall 2017 10×10 Challenge Look Day 9 by Conscious by Chloé

Better late than never! This is Day 9 of the fall 10×10 Challenge.

Yesterday, it was way too rainy and dark to shoot so today you'll get not one, but 2 articles. Enough to keep you busy for the weekend!

My Day 9 Outfit

Steve Jobs would approve.

This is how I initially named this outfit. Then I added accessories and all of a sudden this title was not relevant anymore, but it makes me smile, so I'm gonna keep it.

Now that I look at the pictures, I wish I had not added the necklace. There's suddenly too many colors in a single outfit... Oh well!

Do you have a style icon (just to be clear, mine isn't Steve Jobs, although he's inspiring in many different ways)?

Fall 2017 10×10 Challenge - Day 8

Fall 2017 10×10 Challenge Look Day 8 by Conscious by Chloé

Here we go! Day 8 of the fall 10×10 Challenge.

Today I met not 1 but 2 of my favorite local bloggers: Allison of The Thoughtful Closet and Ellie of Selflessly Styled.

This is one of the reasons why I started this blog, to get out of my own bubble and make connections with inspiring people. It can be awkward to reach out to people you follow on Instagram and then meet them in real life, but it usually dissipates after the first couple minutes. Trust me, I've been doing that for the past 3 years!

My Day 8 Outfit

Sweater + Skirt // Black + White = My favorite combo for this season.

The options are starting to be limited by the time you reach the end of the challenge, so I'm glad that I planned today and tomorrow's outfits in advance.

Lately, I've been working a lot from coffee shops, even meeting friends for work dates. The document organizer I used as a laptop sleeve featured in this look was a present from Octave (yep, he's got good taste!). If I remember well, it's made of vegetable leather, he got it from Poketo like, a year ago.

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!
