What I Wore: 7 x 7 Remix Challenge #2

That’s right! I’m linking up with Natalia for another 7×7 Remix Challenge! You can see the first one here. If you’ve never seen one of these before, the idea is that you pick 7 pieces of clothing and can only use those items to make (at least) 7 different outfits. Accessories don’t count: jewelry, belts, scarves, and all that can be mixed, matched and piled on. For this one, shoes didn’t count as one of the 7 items either, which changed it up even more. I loved doing the first one, so jumped on board again when she announced this round. It really does help you look at the things in your closet in a new way, and try combinations you wouldn’t have thought of otherwise.

Anyway! Down to business. Here are the items I picked:

7x7-items

1. Wine colored tank dress (H&M)
2. Floral stripe lightweight tank (Urban Outfitters)
3. Navy blue sharktail seamed maxi skirt (Philosophy by Republic – Ideeli)
4. Cream sweetheart twist tank (Tulle Clothing)
5. Swatch stripe t-shirt (Old Navy)
6. Speckled white v-neck t-shirt with clover screen print (my shop)
7. Olive green shorts (Old Navy)

And here are my outfits. I doubled-down on my overachiever-ness this time, coming up with 14. FOURTEEN! Just from 7 items! This challenge is amazing at sparking creativity, you guys. Photo heavy post coming at you:

The skirt really is more blue-looking in real life, not quite as dark as it’s coming out in these pictures. And did you enjoy the cute puppy photo-bombs? 🙂

As usual, I like some of these more than others. And it was so nice not to have to include shoes in the 7 items this round! Though it did make the photo shoot take longer, as I had some shoe dilemmas, haha. Some of these items went on vacation with me, so you might see some repeats next week when I do a round-up of what I wore down in Port Aransas (hopefully I’m sitting on a beach right now!).

What do you think? Have you ever participated in a remix challenge before? How did you like it?

    1. It really does give you so many new ideas! Natalia does a challenge roughly once a month, so keep your eyes open for August’s! I’d love to see what you come up with. 🙂

  1. Wowza! You create a ton of looks – way to show how much you can do with only 7 pieces! I love the maxi skirt looks the best – such a versatile piece for your wardrobe. Fabulous job!
    Thanks for participating in the challenge!
    xoxo,

  2. Wow, you KILLED that challenge! I was proud of myself for coming up with one extra outfit! I love that all your outfits are super unique. I didn’t use as many printed items as you – i think that’s the key. lovely! 🙂

    1. Thanks!! 😀 Yeah, printed items really help, as well as a dress you can layer and a maxi skirt (lessons learned from the last 7×7).
