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:
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?
Also linking up with The Pleated Poppy, Transatlantic Blonde, Kiwi Women’s Style, Style Elixir, Because Shanna Said So, Lena B Actually, and Two Thirty-Five Designs.
Ok. I need to get in on this action. Insane! I would never need to shop again if I just tried this!
Love the dog pics.
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. 🙂
So many awesome looks!
Wow, 14 outfits!!! Way to go! My fave is #4 — that hat is a perfect accessory for this casual, cool combo! 🙂
Thanks!! I think look #4 is my favorite, too, after seeing photos of all of them – which surprised me!
Great job with the remix! I agree that it was much easier with shoes not counting. This is my second time doing the challenge. I really like the push to mix and match and get creative.
Style of One’s Own
Thanks! And yes, not having to count shoes really helped (this was my 2nd time, too). 🙂
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!
Thank you! And yes, maxi skirts are awesomely versatile, as I learned in the last 7×7. 🙂
The puppy photo bombs are my fav. I love how creative you are!
She’s an adorable little photo bomb for sure. 😀 Thanks!
all the outfits look great!! I didn’t even notice you wore the same clothes.
Thanks!! *flexes remixing muscles* 😉
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! 🙂
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).
