10×10 Challenge

Me-Made-May 2018 | The pledge and a new challenge

I have definitely left this Me-Made-May 2018 pledge to the very last minute. I’m in Chicago at the moment with work, speaking at a sustainability conference (sorry, just had to brag a bit) and it’s 6 PM here, but in the UK is already midnight and therefore already May.

It’s been a super extra early start today, up since 5am and a 9 hours flight, so do pardon me if I am slightly incoherent. It’s been a bit mad lately so I did not have the time to prepare and shoot for this post in time at home, but I did pack the lot with me, so took the pics in my hotel room in Chicago just now. I do feel a bit chuffed with my jet-setting ways, I must confess.

So, to make things official, here is my pledge.

Spring 10×10 Challenge 2018

This is a bit of a milestone for me, as I am taking part in the now famous 10×10 Challenge for the first time this year. You might have heard Helen and Caroline talking about it on the Love to Sew podcast a while ago. Or you might even have done it yourself.

As someone who has tried and failed repeatedly to a) build a capsule wardrobe and b) complete any styling exercise ever, I am curious how this is going to go for me. I am definitely a minimalist at heart, and getting even more so as I progress through my style journey. So being limited to 10 items over 10 days does not seem daunting at all. I’m actually enjoying the idea of not having to make too many choices when dressing in the morning.

Or I might get ultra fed up and give up half-way through.

Shall I tell you about my choices?
