Winter 10 x 10 days 9, 10

I finished my winter 10 x 10! Thanks for following along. 🙂

On day 9 I repeated my Miranda Bennett everyday top and my Madewell jeans. I half-tucked it, even though I know some people loathe a half-tuck, because it makes my short frame look taller and it also kept it sort of out of the way, since I was doing a lot of errands.

Thoughts on this look: It’s okay. I think I’d prefer this with different jeans and no half-tuck. But I do love this top.

On day 10, I wrapped it up with my VETTA culottes and philosophy top, and a Madewell bandana.

Thoughts on this look: Won’t be repeating it. I felt like an old Western robber. LOL. 

Overall, I had such a great time participating in this challenge. I feel like I learned how to be more resourceful and creative with my wardrobe, and got a better perspective on how many clothes I actually need. I still had several more combinations I could have made with these 10 items by the end of the challenge.

It was also fun to follow along on Instagram and connect with other like-minded people.

In other news, I realized I’ve gained a lot of new followers here and on Instagram, so wanted to do a quick re-intro in case you haven’t made it over to my About page.

hello

It’s me!

My name is Kellie and I live in Connecticut with my husband. I work in marketing in the sustainability industry, fighting plastic waste. I’m really passionate about ethical and conscious fashion as it is another massive source of waste in our society.

Getting a job in the sustainability industry, about two years ago, made me start to question my shopping habits and how my addiction to fast-fashion was harmful to the planet, people, and actually to my wallet as well.

Prior to working in sustainability I was really ignorant of how our choices affect the earth – I worked in public relations in the consumer goods/ beauty industry and felt that I was playing keeping-up-with-the-Joneses a lot of the time.

In my spare time, I volunteer with an animal rescue and also do freelance social media work. And I’m ALSO getting my master’s. I keep busy. 🙂

My hobbies include cooking (especially plant based foods! though my husband is not vegan), reading and spending time with my two rescue cats, Luna and Ares.
