7 Pieces 7 Outfits

The 7x7 Remix is finally here!  I've teamed up with Natalia from Ma Nouvelle Mode and a few more bloggers to take 7 pieces of clothing and put together 7 different outfits.  Plus, we wanted to invite YOU to join us in the 7x7 challenge by linking up with us below.  (If you are still wondering what this 7x7 business is, check this post for the prompt and background.)


Above are my 7 pieces.  Like I told you before, I chose pieces that were kind of in the same color family and made sure to include a good mix of solids as well as different types of bottoms.  All of my pieces are either from Target or Old Navy, with the exception of the floral skirt being from Conversation Pieces.  


And here's how I worked them into 7 outfits!




Shopping links for similar items:



Outfit #1:

This outfit falls right in line with my tips for dressing cute in the heat and is going to be great in the summer.  The belt is totally optional, but I like that it provides a sort of focal point and differentiates it a little more from Outfit #7.


Outfit #2:

I used to not buy solid tops because I always thought they were boring.  Then I learned a bit about accessorizing and my perspective on solids was transformed.  Just add a statement necklace or a scarf and you're good to go!


Outfit #3: 

You've gotta love a chambray shirt because it'll go with anything.  Often people ask what to pair with a skirt or pair of pants that has some pattern that they don't know what to do with, and my answer always includes a chambray shirt.  This time I tied it over my skirt, though I could also have tucked it in and thrown a belt over it.


Outfit #4: 

This is another example of taking solids and making them more cohesive or "not boring" by adding an accessory.  I almost didn't use this outfit because the top and bottom without the scarf reminded me a lot of watermelon candy.  Why I think that's a problem to begin with, I don't know, but I just wasn't having it!  Haha.  Luckily I had an accessory that had both pinks and greens (teal-ish colors and bits of minty green that you can't see in this pic) to tie the pieces together a bit more.  


Outfit #5: 

I've already shown this outfit before, just with different shoes, but I loved it so much that I included it here again.  A skirt like this is fun because you can pick out any of the colors in the pattern and use that in the rest of your outfit.  I love all the pretty colors!


Outfit #6: 

Okay, I may have cheated a little on this one because of the striped shirt underneath.  Sorry for that--I originally had a striped shirt in my 7 pieces but I swapped it later and did not want to take another picture for a little layering piece that you can hardly see.  Forgive me?  :)


Outfit #7:

I can't get enough of my white denim right now.  It goes with EVERYTHING, and I love this light and breezy combo.  This was a totally easy, no-brainer outfit.  Whoop whoop!

There you have it, 7 pieces turned into 7 outfits!  (Shopping links for similar items were shown near the top of this post.)

  4. I was able to link-up to my GCOGH ensemble using the direct image option via inlinkz. I'm not sure if non GCOGH members will be able to view it, but the link works for me. Thank you Audrey!

    This link-up made me realized how much I'd like to have at least one patterned bottom - preferably in graphic B&W, like houndstooth, stripes, or polka dots.

    I have worn a similar outfit to #4 - sans scarf. I like the watermelon candy look! :)

  5. Great idea! Love the 7x7 concept! Fun inspiration. Thanks!!

  6. I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your blog. This'll sound like a backhanded compliment...but I like that it's not a straight up "style blog", and is instead about building a remixing wardrobe and learning how to use pieces different ways (which is style, of course, but not at all complicated!) Your advice is attainable and I love that about this blog. Keep up the good work, you clever girl you!

  7. Oh my goodness every single one of these is absolutely gorgeous!! And they all look so different too! You're super super clever!!

  11. I love the outfits you put together! And I feel like there are even more possibilities with these 7 items - you chose really remixable/versatile items. Where did you get that floral pencil skirt? It's perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  12. LOVE this idea--so inspiring for summer vacation packing! The ode to the floral skirt with the scarf in outfit 4 is great too, so cute!

  22. All your outfits are perfect for summer! I especially love the green top with the floral skirt!

    I have to admit, when I saw what items you were going to use, I was curious if you were going to try to put the floral shirt and the floral skirt together. Haha, maybe cute, but also maybe crazy?!



    Thanks so much for hosting this link-up! I had a ton of fun putting the outfits together and I have to say it was probably one of my favorite blog posts I've ever done!

  26. Masterfully done, as always! I think my favorite is number 3, but it's so hard to choose! Thanks for the linkup. :)

  27. Love your outfits. I need to get a chambray top for this awesome floral patterned, pleated skirt I own. I currently wear it with a black top, but chambray would be a nice way to change it up. ^_^ And on that topic, how do you tuck your chambray shirt like that in outfit #6? Spill your secret! ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  28. Your outfits turned out so well! I especially love Outfit #5 even though you've already worn something similar. That skirt is so pretty and is very flattering on you! Great remix post!!

  39. Well done! I ended up not having time to participate. But if there is a next time then I'm in!
    I was hoping to see how you'd mix that floral top and the floral skirt together. But, alas :P. I love that skirt so much I might have to hunt for a similar one here in SA.

  41. I am loving the 7 x 7 and might need to try that in my own closet! As I look through the various bloggers' 7x7 choices, I am noticing belts. I really like both the narrow and wide options. But every time I use the wide option, I feel like a throw back to the 80s! Could you address belts in a future post? Affordable choices that are up-to-date? Yours always look so good but I am having trouble picking ones that look good on me! (And I have a wide waist, so belts can be hard to choose!)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'm so glad you're leaving this up for a few days!!! I didn't have time to do one this week, but I want to try to tonight. Yeah!

    ReplyDelete
  43. It looks like it's open for another 5 days to submit, so you still could!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm still debating about ordering that skirt. What size did you get?

    ReplyDelete
  45. I got a Large! This sucker runs small. I followed the measurements listed on the site exactly, and that worked perfectly for me.

    ReplyDelete
  46. And it is rude if I ask what # size you usually wear? I'm typically a 4.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Haha...I'm normally a 6/8 on the bottom. But I would really go by the measurements that are listed on the site.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love that patterned skirt and the floral top, both are so cute!! This was such an exciting thing to be apart of and I can't wait to go look at what everyone did!!

  49. I love how you created a variety of outfits, but they all stay true to your personal style. And they're all perfect for summer! My favorite outfit is by far #2, but I also love #1 and #6.Thanks again for hosting the link-up--it was a ton of fun!

    ReplyDelete
  50. It's going to have to wait till next time :(. But thanks for the encouragement!
