It's the last day! Woohoo! I'm really excited to see the rest of my closet next week, but I'm also going to miss how easy it was to get dressed everyday. I should definitely think about planning my outfits ahead of time to cut down on crazy mornings... 

My boyfriend said that this outfit was his favorite out of all of them. I don't share the same sentiment, though, haha. I'm wearing my linen blazer/white skinny jeans "suit" that I wore in the first look (which is still my favorite), and I actually do like how the gingham shirt looks with it. I folded the wrists over the blazer so the pink gingham could peek out. Here I have the shirt tucked in, but it looks so sloppy in the photos! I swear I had it looking nice before we started shooting, haha. I ended up leaving the shirt untucked in real life (it's on my Insta stories right now!) for a more casual Friday vibe. I'm not crazy about the shoe choice, but I didn't know what else would have worked better other than my beige wedges (I decided those needed a break). What shoes would you have picked?

Another 10x10 down! I'll be back on Tuesday (hopefully) with a full recap of the challenge. :)


I know that those "10 items every women should have in her closet" lists are dumb because there's not one list of items that fits every person's personal style. That said, it seems like white denim in some form is a staple in pretty much everyone's wardrobe. White denim shorts and pants are definitely staples for me in the warmer months! These jeans from LOFT have been my most-reached for item in this challenge aside from my linen blazer, not surprisingly. LOFT brings them back every spring, and they are still available now (buy them when they're doing a promo!). I got them in a size 24 petite because they ran large for me and I wanted the shorter length. They stretch out a bit with wear but washing them shrinks them back (I don't tumble dry them). Of course, the white stains easily, but I haven't had any issues with set-in stains! Bonus: they're not crazy see-through! If these aren't your jam, I rounded up more white skinny jean options at different price points below.

1) Modern skinny jeans by LOFT ($70, on sale for $65) / Working front pockets and the least sheer of all the white jeans I tried on back in this post. Available in regular and petite sizes.

2) Modern fresh cut skinny jeans by LOFT ($70, on sale for $65) / Very similar style but with raw hems and a slightly cropped length. Reviews say they aren't see-through. Available in regular sizes.

3) Mid-rise stay white Rockstar skinny jeans by Old Navy ($44, on sale for $32) / Features coin pockets and stain-repellant technology. Cotton/polyester blend. Available in regular, tall, and petite sizes (regular sizes are available in short, regular, and long lengths). 

4) Nico ankle super skinny jeans by Hudson ($165, on sale for $99) / Mostly cotton with a bit of polyester. 30" inseam. Some reviews mention that they're slightly sheer and have fake front pockets. Available in most sizes.

5) 9-inch high-rise skinny jeans by Madewell ($125) / Mostly cotton with a bit of polyester. 28.5" inseam.
