7 Bloggers, 7 Pieces, 7 Ways – Remix your Wardrobe!

Hello!!

I am so super excited about today’s post!! I have been waiting for it for a while. Remember a little while back when I took 7 pieces from my closet and remixed them to create 7 different outfits? And then again when I wore only skirts & shorts for a week, remixing again? Or when I showed you how to pack light & still travel in style?

Well, I’m at it again! And this time, I made sure to round up some other fabulous bloggers to showcase how they can remix their closet too! Meet the June remix ‘team’ if you will.

Aren’t you excited? So much inspiration!! Let me give you a little run down about the 7×7 Remix and at the end of this post, you’ll have a chance to link up your fashion remix posts as well!

So most of you reading this are women. And most women like to shop. I, myself, am included. However, it can get expensive every time you want to create a new outfit you need to buy a new piece. Enter the idea of shopping your closet. It works for all types of closets too! If you’re like me and don’t have a large wardrobe, it helps you get creative with what you have and not feel the need to shop every chance you get. I also had someone tell me that they actually had a large closet but end up wearing the same outfits all the time. The challenge will help you expand your choices for sure!

7x7

For this challenge we each took 7 pieces of clothing, including shoes (yes, that makes it hard!), and remixed it to create 7 different outfits. Jewelry, accessories, hats, scarves don’t count. So accessorize to your hearts content! The rules are super strict, it’s more the spirit of the challenge. So if you link up and don’t have exactly 7 pieces or 7 outfits – I don’t care! I just love that you tried!!

Are you ready for my pieces? Here we go:

7 pieces

 

Two pairs of shoes, shorts, maxi skirt, maxi dress, orange tee, and gray floral top.

It’s summer, but we’re in the middle of June gloom, so it’s not super hot yet. You have to go with pieces that go together but don’t necessarily match. It definitely makes the remixing easier.

 1.) Cute & casual

orange & floral shirts

Shorts // Shirt // Floral Top // Shoes  (similar) // Earrings

I recently met a friend at the beach and arrived a little early. Naturally, I drug the boys into an Old Navy that was close by. I bought these shorts and the top was on sale for around $5. The floral shirt is from my first StitchFix box. I wore this to a church picnic and out to see family. Perfect for a relaxing afternoon!

2.) Maxi Dress & Skirt

Maxi Dress // Maxi Skirt // Shoes (similar)

I bought the Maxi dress from Kris&Kate a little bit ago and LOVE it. It’s got that fun flowy top part which made it perfect to pair with the maxi skirt! (also from Kris&Kate) I added the red belt to add some color and pulled the skirt up to have it higher on the waist. Red lips and feather earrings to finish it off! Oh and you can get 5% off anything at Kris & Kate by using the code Nouvelle5.

3.) Super Casual

orange shirt and shorts Shirt // Shorts // Shoes  (similar)

This is perfect for your everyday summer day. Flats, shorts, & a tee. I tied the tee to the side to give it a little something different. I recently bought an orange Revlon lipstick that is fab-u-lous. I mean, it’s the perfect orange. I will be wearing it a lot this summer.

4.) Plain Maxi

Dress // Shoes  (similar) // Sunglasses

This is the Kris&Kate maxi I was telling you about. And if you haven’t checked them out, do it now, they’re fabulous. I get their e-mails so I always know when there’s a deal. I bought this one and the skirt. Remember you can also use the code Nouvelle5 for 5%. Isn’t it a fun tribal print? And I absolutely love the top of it. So pretty & flattering.

5.) Maxi Skirt & Tee

orange shirt

Shirt // Maxi // Shoes (similar)// Belt (similar)

For this outfit I pulled down the skirt to more on my hips, wore my leopard flats & belt with the orange top. Done! Super easy, pretty outfit for everyday. These are the kinds of outfits I love as a mom. You are comfortable and can be active but you’re still cute. This skirt will be a summer staple!

6.) Floral Shirt with Shorts

floral shirt & shorts

 

Shirt // Shorts // Shoes  (similar) // Earrings // Sunglasses (similar)

It’s funny, I never thought about pairing these two together until this remix challenge! In fact, I didn’t have this shirt as a part of my 7 until I saw it and threw it on. Then I knew I had to incorporate it. I’m glad I did too, it worked so well! My husband really liked this outfit too. Another one where you’re cute & casual & still practical.

7.) Maxi skirt dressed up

maxi & floral shirt

 

Shirt // Skirt // Necklace  (sold out – but here’s theire necklaces)// Shoes

This (and #6) are my favorite outfits that came out of this remix challenge. I wore this to church on Sunday and it was perfect. I tucked the shirt all the way in & pulled the skirt a little higher & added a thick belt. I wish you could see the necklace better, it’s a beautiful a-thread necklace, I love it. I wore my orange lipstick again. I think I wore it everyday after buying it. And my hair (it’s getting longer!) is parted down the middle with some beachy curls.

I wanted to show you a quick close up of the earrings I wore a few times. They’re a beautiful coral-orange and went perfectly with all my outfits for this challenge, I had to try to wear other pieces! They’re from an online boutique called INPINK and they’re offering 30% off using the code NATALIA30.

    Thanks so much for dreaming this challenge up! I had so much fun putting together 7 looks!

    I really like the jean shorts with the orange tee – simple, but chic. And the way you knotted the shirt adds a little pizazz 🙂

    • Natalia June 12, 2013 at 4:18 pm #

      Thank you so much. I love that you were able to link up! Your looks were amazing! That striped dress is so versatile. I love your blog name too, by the way, so cute! Thanks for leaving a comment!

  11. Lauren June 12, 2013 at 10:11 am #

    Your outfits turned out great!! I especially love # 6 and # 2. I never thought to layer a maxi skirt over a maxi dress!! I have a very similar maxi, I should try it!

  13. Audrey @ Putting Me Together June 12, 2013 at 12:02 pm #

    Great job, Natalia! I love your maxi dress, and all of your maxi dress/skirt looks. Very perfect for June gloom!

    • Natalia June 12, 2013 at 4:15 pm #

      Thanks Audrey! Loved having you on board with this, it was fun!!

  14. dearabbyleigh June 12, 2013 at 7:39 pm #

    great challenge and outfits! i love the looks with the long black skirt – often those tend to look sloppy, but you are chic and beautiful in them! thanks for linking up with dress for the day!!

    • Natalia June 12, 2013 at 7:42 pm #

      Oh of course! Glad I found your link up! It’s got to be that maxi skirt. Because it’s fitted so it’s not really sloppy, I love it! So comfy!

  15. Jackie June 13, 2013 at 7:01 pm #

    Thanks so much for introducing everyone to this great challenge. It was really fun to participate!
    Your outfits came out nice. I checked out your original 7 for 7, and I am impressed how creative you have been with a smaller wardrobe. It just goes to show you don’t need a lot of “stuff” to dress wonderfully.

    • Natalia June 14, 2013 at 8:04 am #

      Exactly!! That’s exactly the point I’m trying to make! You don’t need a ton of ‘stuff’ to be cute & feel good about yourself! So glad you got to participate, I will be doing it monthly, so hopefully you can join again!

      • Jackie June 14, 2013 at 10:47 am #

        Natalia – I would love to try the 7 for 7 again. I think you pointed out somewhere that it’s more manageable than the 30 for 30 remix, while still getting the benefit of re-working your closet and dressing with intention and creativity. Count me in for the next one girl!

        • Natalia June 14, 2013 at 1:25 pm #

          Yay! Sounds good! If you add your e-mail to the side thing in the side bar you’ll get an e-mail when the next one goes live!

  16. Caitlin @ Greater Than Rubies June 14, 2013 at 1:49 pm #

    Natalia, you are gorgeous. I love the colors and patterns you used, and reading the story behind why you blog made me like you even more. 🙂 Looking forward to the next remix! Thanks for hosting us all.

    • Natalia June 15, 2013 at 9:18 pm #

      Thank you for your comment, I appreciate it! You’re really so sweet, thank you. I can’t wait for the next remix either, I feel like this one was a hit!

  17. Lauren @ Style of One's Own June 15, 2013 at 8:11 pm #

    Love how you styled your 7! You did a great job at making them each look like totally separate outfits. And thanks so much for taking the time to comment on my blog… that was sweet!
