7x7 Remix

So a couple weeks ago, Audrey at Putting Me Together challenged bloggers to do a 7x7 remix.  Create 7 outfits using only 7 articles of clothing, including shoes!  l;uju,hn <--That's from Koen. :)  I thought it sounded like a ton of fun, and definitely a challenge that would stretch me!  I picked out my pieces, put together my outfits, and even got photos taken!  But I didn't end up having time to blog it all in time to participate in the link-up.  Boo!  But I did have fun, and since I did all the work, I'm going to post it anyways!  Soooo, here are my 7 pieces.

Navy Tank: Old Navy
Striped Maxi Dress: Wal-Mart
Striped Tee: Old Navy
Chambray Top: JCPenney
Mint Skinnies: Kohl's
Coral Shorts: Old Navy
Sandals: Target

Outfit #1:

Necklace: GroopDealz

My first ever maxi dress!  I love it!   Throw on a statement necklace and this is about as dressed up as I get!

Outfit #2:

Maxi dress as maxi skirt!  Added my chambray top to make it more casual and a bit warmer.  (Sorry about the blurry photo!)

Outfit #3:

 Same great chambray top, just switched to shorts.  Perfect for taking the kids to the park!

Outfit #4:

Necklace: Gift

This tank and shorts are both brand new from Old Navy.  I NEVER would have put these colors together before starting my style discovery journey!  I've learned that I love navy and it works as a great neutral!

Outfit #5: 

Scarf: Very Jane

Of course I have to include an outfit with a scarf!  :-D  I think this is a successful attempt at pattern mixing!

Outfit #6:

Necklace: GroopDealz

Here's my striped tee again.  This time with my mint skinnies and a statement necklace.  To be perfectly honest, I think necklaces really add some *oomph* to an outfit, but in my daily life, I don't usually wear them.  When I'm hanging out at home with the kids, or out playing at the park, a large necklace is just in the way!  But if I ever get out without the kids, I do love to add that extra something special.

Outfit #7:

Necklace: GroopDealz

Umm...  changed my shirt.  Haha!  I like this combo better!

And because I can...

Outfit #8:

Took off the necklace for a more casual vibe.  And I love my chambray top as a layering piece!


Outfit #9:

I swear, chambray goes with everything!  It took me a long time to jump on the train, and then find just the right top, but now I'm pretty sure I'm in for the long haul with this trend!

Looking back over these photos again, I'm realizing that I really had no idea what my style was 6-8 months ago, and it's so fun to try new things, and get dressed *mostly* every day and like what I'm wearing!

I hope you enjoyed my tardy entry into the 7x7 remix challenge!  It's so great to be able to make so many different outfits from so few pieces!

Linking up for What I Wore Wednesday at The Pleated Poppy!

  2. What cute outfits! I love that they all come from just 7 pieces! :-)

  3. This is really great! I saw that 7x7 challenge and I love what people have put together! It has made me try some of the same formulas with my clothing! I have that striped shirt and it is so versatile. Love what you did with yours!


I love, love, love hearing from you! So what's up? :)
