Winter remix: 10 items, 10 outfits, 10 days

The 10 x 10 Challenge is where you pick 10 pieces from your wardrobe and create 10 outfits from them over the next 10 days.

It’s about having fun, challenging our creativity, and learning something new about ourselves.

I’ve decided to give it a go! Letting go of my perfectionism that I’ve miss the official challenge dates, because honestly who cares, it’s more about taking the action and doing it.

You can follow along and see what outfits I create on my instagram. After I’ve completed the challenge I’ll pop back here and give you a recap on how I went.

You can read more about the 10 x 10 challenge from Caroline at Un-Fancy or Lee at Style Bee.

 

 

MY 10 PIECES

  • 4 tops
  • 3 bottoms
  • 2 shoes
  • 1 vest

I’m not including accessories, like bags, jewellery, scarves or jackets.

Oh! and general life activities (running, sleeping, etc) require work out wear and PJ’s, so those will still get worn in the background like usual.

Knitted Shawl

A shawl I knitted last year. It has quickly become my ‘go to’, throwing it on with whatever I happen to be wearing and it just works. The shape and the way the soft wool drapes is beautiful.

I used a pattern by Sylvia McFadden of Softseater knits called ‘Waiting for Rain

Find more info on the pattern and wool  here

 

For me knitting is a creative outlet, time to unwind, and a way of celebrating the changing seasons.

Weekend at the beach

In March, for our wedding anniversary, we decided to go for an overnight at the beach to celebrate and to spend quality time together as a family before Garth went away for work again.

Even though we were barely there 24hrs, it was such a lovely trip. Setting up camp just on the edge of the sand so we could enjoy the scenery without having to leave our site (which was particularly lovely in the evening after the kids had gone to sleep, watching the lights reflecting on the water while grounding our feet in the sand with a glass of wine in hand).

Reminding me again of the importance of making time to get away from the ever growing list of jobs to do and just to sit and be with those that you love.

Knitted romper for my baby boy

Knitting is something I have quickly grown to love. It is my time to sit back and put my feet up at the end of they day, my time to meditate in the repetitive motion of the needles clicking together gradually weaving a new shape out of a string of wool, my time to recharge.

This romper I knitted for Jairus. It really is the perfect little outfit for a very active crawling, climbing, wriggling boy. Throw on a collared shirt and knee high socks and he’s the best dressed kid in town, or put on a t-shirt and he’s all set to go exploring.

The pattern is the Sea Breeze Romper  by Kuroki Knitting
