Winter 2018 10×10 Challenge Look Day 6 by Conscious by Chloé

Hi friends!

After a short unexpected hiatus spent with loved ones back home in France, I am back over here to share with you the rest of my winter 10x10 outfits.

My Day 6 Outfit

This outfit is highly inspired by my Day 3 Outfit only it's even cozier (cashmere worn directly on my skin) and more convenient (no need to take off my sweater to go to the restroom).

I have a three-decade-long love story with jumpsuits, overalls and their sister one-piece items of clothing. I'm still debating on getting denim overalls. If you find a cute vintage and not-too-boxy pair, hit me up!

  • Sweater - Everlane - Made in China
  • Jumpsuit (old) - Open Air Museum - Made in the USA (Portland, OR) - Similar
  • Clogs - Sandgrens - Made in Sweden

Style Notes

This sweater is the one big purchase I made this season. I had gotten the same one in black the previous winter and I wore it so much that I decided to add another one to my closet, but this time in a lighter tone. Most of the muted tones were sold out and I was too excited to wait for a restock, so I got this lavender number and have not regretted it. I like the contrast with the black jumpsuit and could still easily add accessories in another color without cluttering the look.

For accessories, I decided to err on the side of minimalism with a pair of earrings I got in Morocco many years ago and a thin necklace I won in a contest even longer ago (I named it the Bad, the Good and the Queen re. the colors of the tiny skulls).

I still am too lazy to try anything fancy in terms of hair styling. Using a wand to create those waves is as far as I will go. But I did steal a wooden hairpin from my mom last week so things might change in the coming weeks as my hair is starting to get long enough.

Talking about laziness. I hate bringing clothes to the dry cleaners because they're pricey and most of them are far from environment-friendly, so I hand-wash my cashmere sweaters at home, then roll them in a towel to absorb excess water and finally lay them flat on a dry towel until they're dry.

Do you also come up with creative hacks to avoid pricey or non-earth-friendly practices when it comes to taking care of your clothes? Do you have a secret stain-remover recipe? Please send it my way!
