So somewhat confusing, but I'm switching up my numbering system to keep in step with the 10x10 challenge, and I'm going to add a bit more detail to my notes, a la Style Bee and Un-Fancy. Day 1 started off with a bang of being one of the coldest days so far this winter, so I bundled up and headed into the office!
Calvin Klein brown wrap sweater (old/thrifted), black skinny pants (newish/Uniqlo), Born tall boots (old/online)
Overall, I was pretty happy with the outfit. It could have been a touch dressier for work, but I struggled a bit to cover the broad range of office to home in my 10 pieces. The dark color scheme is what gives it the work-appropriate vibe, I think. I wore this sweater for my first outfit of the year, and knew I pretty happy with it and wanted to wear it more.
There isn't a lot of styling going on here, which is kinda my goal for this challenge, but I find it hard when wearing a statement piece like this sweater (it's really hard to wear it different ways!). With such a voluminous sweater, I do find it necessary to wear skinny pants to balance it out, but this time I broke out my tall boots to deal with snow. Having my shoes the same color as my pants does help them fade into the background a bit, and makes the sweater really the focus.
The past few days I've been wearing this orange-red lipstick and it's really been brightening up my face, I think. Particularly with such a dark, neutral outfit, I need a splash of color!
