So one of my favorite bloggers, Audrey at Putting Me Together, is hosting a 7×7 remix challenge. The idea of the challenge is to show 7 outfits created from 7 pieces (including shoes and excluding accessories) to help you to stretch your ideas for different & new ways to wear a small number of items. I love the idea! I always wanted to do a 30×30 challenge but it still seems do daunting to me but 7×7?! Totally do-able! It’s is realistic too…especially if you are traveling or ahem, behind on laundry :-)
I selected the pieces of clothing that are classic and summer-oriented and in my mind, are good closet staples that can make outfits for dressy to laid back occasions. And….I ended up with 8 outfits (extra credit for me!?) I had a 9th outfit but it was really pushing it…my husband even said it was not that great so no photos of that one- I’ll spare you the look! Links to all the items are further below (and most of the items were bought within the last few months via my monthly clothing budgets). Hope you enjoy!
Outfit #1– relaxed look–perfect for running errands. Paired it with drop earrings to dress it up a bit!
Outfit #2– lace top with white denim– the lace top really makes the outfit a lot more dressy! I’d wear this out to dinner if I wasn’t in the mood to wear a skirt or dress.
Outfit #3– I did some layering with my green tee and chambray..and more white denim! Love these jeans (as long as I don’t stain them!)
Outfit #4– Add a skirt to the lace top and this look becomes much dressier! Great for church, work or date night!
Outfit #5– Dressed down the skirt by adding the green tee (PS- this tee from Old Navy is SO comfortable and at a great price! I plan to stock up on more once my Super Cash is valid at the end of the month.)
Outfit #6- Classic chambray on top with the skirt…added the belt because I felt there was too much blue going on! Could have used some fun colorful earrings, but I forgot on this one- whoops!
Outfit #7– Yes, I included print cropped pants in my 7 pieces! I wanted to show that these were versatile! I like the different textures with the lace and pattern in the pants!
Outfit #8– I love green and navy together! A more relaxed look than #7 above.
