I seriously think all these outfit looks so good! You are killing this challenge.
I appreciate it Ginny! This is a fun challenge- loving it!
Katie @ Live Half Full says
All so cute- these are SO helpful for me! I tend to just buy basics, so seeing these mix and match visuals is awesome.
YAY- so glad you are enjoying this Katie! The pieces are pretty basic so can be used as a “shopping staple list” of sorts!
Kelsey @aslolife says
Loving all of these looks! It’s such a great reminder about how much versatility we can really get out of less pieces and probably how many pieces just sit in our wardrobe anyway. Not that I’m sure I could narrow it down if I had to!
It’s so true Kelsey. I didn’t think I could narrow it down either but once I got down to business– it was easier than I thought! Enjoy the rest of the remix in the next couple weeks :-)
I love your pieces and all the accessories you have! You’ve made so many outfits with just 20 pieces it’s amazing!
Thank you so much Marissa! I didn’t think I could come up with this many so I’m thrilled!
I’ve never seen someone tackle this challenge with work wear before, so it’s great to see looks that I could actually wear to work! Everything except the vested outfits would fly at my work.
I also like that you played around and made more outfits than you needed for the week. So which ones did you end up wearing last week?
I’m so glad you are enjoying this remix Sara! When I came up with outfits, I focused on one piece as the anchor and remixed from there and took all photos at once so I wouldn’t have to do laundry on these 30 pieces constantly if I wanted to rewear something back to back. But I know I wore my LBD recently with the blazer over it–and I wore my cream pencil skirt with my vest and maroon top last week too (that’s coming soon!)
You are totally nailing this challenge Valerie. I have enjoyed this very much. The classic shape and cut of that shift LBD makes it year-around and good to pair with anything. Your coral skirt is beautiful and it goes with so much. I now want a coral pencil skirt even more. I think so far the outfits you created with this citrusy skirt are my favorites. =)
I appreciate the kind words Ada! You would rock a coral pencil skirt (or any other bright skirt for summer!)
Love the coral blazer. Gorgeous and yes very versatile.
Thanks Agi- love that color so much…so summery!
They are all such cute outfits! I think my favorites are the coral skirt with the striped top and the snakeskin top! I love how versatile both the skirt and dress are!
Thanks Maria! It’s amazing to see how many ways things can be remixed…I didn’t know until I tried! It’s hard to envision all the possibilities when I just see everything in my closet- helps to actually put the outfits together!
These are all so cute! I like how you belted the military vest with a colored belt! Great idea!
That is probably my favorite look this week! Thanks Laura!
Totally going to recreate the vest + belt + black dress outfit for my own office!
YES! You would rock that! (But please make sure Chewie coordinates with you in some way…do they make doggy cargo vests?!)
Selah at A Bibliophile's Style says
I included a coral skirt in my 20 pieces too – it’s a surprisingly versatile color! I think the last outfit is my favorite – I really like the nude neutrals with the bright coral. The olive vest / purple belt combo is great too!
Yes- LOVE the coral color- so perfect for this summer remix! I like the two looks you described too- probably my top two!
You are pretty much dominating this challenge! I feel like you chose the most versatile pieces possible – I can’t believe how different each outfit really is. Good work, Valerie!
You are so sweet- thanks Ashley! When I laid out my 20 items I wondered if I could make 30 unique outfits but it turned out to be easier than I thought!
Great outfits! I definitely need to pin this for black dress inspiration. I love the print tank, too!
Thanks Carly- I feel like everyone has a LBD in their closet right?!
Caroline @ Tasteful Style says
These are all really pretty looks! It seems you and I have very similar items in our closets, so re-creating these outfits will be easy for me :)
YAY! Glad to provide some inspiration- thanks for following along Caroline!
Such great looks, Valerie! I’m so impressed you’ve already come up with 27 outfits, and can’t wait to see the rest! Have a fantastic week! :)
Thanks Caitlin! I’ve got lots more to come– digging this challenge!
Are you sure that you’re only remixing 20 pieces??? You have come up with so many great outfits…unbelievable. Love them all!
Thank you so much Carrie! I was worried I couldn’t do it at first but now that I’ve started putting things together, I was surprised at how many outfits I’ve come up with already!
What a fantastic collection of outfits, Valerie!! I REALLY love the black dress + cargo vest + leopard heels + pink/purple belt dress – you look stunning in it!!
PS. I’ve been really behind on commenting on blogs lately, so I haven’t neglected you, I just haven’t had time to sit at my computer and comment!
Thank you SO much Brynn! You are so sweet…and I totally understand on the commenting stuff- I’m behind too- on all blogging in general..summers are hard like that I feel!
