Hi. I'm Jacki

I write a lifestyle blog for Gen X women who are ready to say YES to (mid)life & become what they might have been.

Spring 10x10: The Halfway Point

Spring 10x10: The Halfway Point

At this point, I’m just a little over halfway through the Spring 10x10. I have lots of thoughts and feels to share, but I’m still processing them all. So come back next week for the recap. I’ll also share all 10 outfits I styled during the challenge.

Today, I want to give a shout out to all the amazing style choices I’ve seen on Instagram. As I type this, there are more than 6,500 posts for the hashtag #spring10x10. That’s an incredible number of people (mostly women) to gather inspiration from.

Like me, so many are faced with the overly long winter. Others have been wearing shorts and tanks for weeks (so jealous). I guess those folks are just inspiring my summer 10x10, because yes, I will be doing this again.

So, without further ado, here’s some of my favorite looks.

Susan has my uniform on, but dressed up and classy. I love the silver loafers and that statement necklace. 

The colors, I love that combo.

Super cozy, and I love the details on her pants, the little bit of flair.

I love the hat. I don't often wear dresses, but I can see myself in this one. It looks comfortable. And I can see styling it dressy and casual.

I must have this entire outfit. Maybe this challenge isn't so good for helping me pare down my closet...

Ah, Lee. The 10x10 creator and one of this round's co-hosts. She might just convince me to invest in a bodysuit. 

Loving her outfits, but especially loving how she is sharing them. And hello, that sweater is so cute.

One lesson learned (or really reinforced, but I already knew it) is that I feel way too masculine in button-ups. But this button-up is much more feminine, especially when topped with this amazing sweater. Again, more things going on my wishlist.

I would very much like for this outfit to be my early summer date night attire.

Co-host, Caroline, in a jumpsuit. Okay, okay, I get it, they're magical. This one might just have convinced me.

This roomy sweater might just be my button-up solution. Love the bright color and the classic look.
