Fall 7×7 Remix Link Party!

Eek! I had so much fun doing this challenge! To be honest, when I picked the pieces I said to myself “Oh shoot, Natalia. What’d you do? You’ll never be able to make 7 outfits with this!!” Guess what, self! I made 9 NINE outfits!! And I could have done more. And they were cute. And they were outfits I haven’t worn before but will wear in the future thus expanding my wardrobe. SCORE.

Let’s first start by saying wassup to my fellow hosts. Here’s the deets. Under the pictures are their BlogLovin links so you can go follow them all! You won’t be disappointed, promise. So much inspiration I tell ya.

Here are the pieces I chose:

Here’s the details as close as I could get them.

Okay you ready for it? I have this overview picture and then I’ll go through each outfit. Oh and I’m still learning how to use my camera remote, so excuse the fact that I’m holding it in every picture. Does anyone know how to use it on a timer? That would be super helpful.

7x7 collage

There’s a summary of all my nine outfits. I think this is the first time I’ve gone over seven. I know, I’m such an over-achiever. ha.ha.HA

Polka Dot shirt & Lace Shorts

blue+lave+shorts+with+polka+dot+shirt
Shirt: bought in France – here, here and here are  similar // Shorts: Windsor (here’s some cute red ones)// Shoes: c/o Zappos 

Originally I didn’t think these pieces would be sutied together. And you guys — I don’t own a full length mirror. So I had to take a step of faith here hoping it didn’t look horrendous. And actually, I liked it a lot!! We have super warm days with days of rain thrown in, so this was a perfect outfit for this time of year. If it got chilly, I could always throw on some tights or nylons.

Chevron Casual

chevron+top+with+blue+jeans
Chevron top: Kris & Kate // Jeans: H&M (similar) // Shoes: c/o Zappos // Necklace: World Market (gifted but here’s similar)

Can I just say… these shooooeeeesss.  I’s like you’re walking on clouds except they’re actually really cute shoes. And they go with everything I own, I swear. Or at least that’s how I’m gonna wear them. You won’t be able to tell me otherwise… Although I’m sure my husband will point it out. I know this outfit is casual and nothing super special, but I love it. It’s the perfect mom uniform because you don’t really look like a mom! WIN!

Chevron Top Dressed Up

neon+skirt+and+chevron+top
Shirt: Kris & Kate (Sold Out but  here’s one in black, and mint, and orange  // Belt: similar ($4!), similar // Skirt: Target ($13!) // Shoes: c/o Zappos 

This went together surprisingly well. Except the skirt is more neon, you can’t really tell here. Once again, those booties. They even work with neon! I chose the belt to tie it all together. This is a new outfit that I really probably wouldn’t have otherwise worn if I didn’t do this challenge. Oh and I was seriously tired when I took these. That explains the dazed and confused look over to the left… It was one of those zone out moments and I couldn’t look away. You know? No? Just me, huh. Boo.

Neon and Polka Dots

neon+skirt+with+polka+dot+top
Shirt: French store (similar, similar, similar) // Belt: Old (similar, similar) // Skirt: Target ($13 right now!)// Shoes: c/o Zappos

Another unexpected outfit! I know it might look obvious, but you know when you have certain things in your closet you only wear a particular way. Then you get stuck in that way and never really branch out? Well, that happens to me easily. That’s why I have to do these challenges, it helps! I couldn’t really get a good shot, but the back of this shirt is a pretty lace. I love it. My husband, however, doesn’t like polka dots. Seriously? Who doesn’t like polka dots?

Bright all over

 
pink+skirt+&+coral+top
Shirt: Kris & Kate (5% off with NOUVELLE5)// Skirt: Target (same skirt just flipped!) // Shoes: Nordstrom Rack (similar)

Can we take a second and talk about this skirt? I mean, really. I thought I might have been a little silly for buying it, although it was on sale. But it’s reversible! I mean, I don’t know if that’s totally 80’s or what, but I love it. This look is so fun too, super bright and cheery. I paired it with my fun nude pumps to tone it down a bit.

Casual Cute

pink+top+&+blue+jeans
Top: Kris & Kate (5% off with NOUVELLE5) // Jeans: H&M (similar) // Shoes: Nordstrom Rack (similarsimilar)

Now let’s talk about this top. I just love it. It’s so simple in the front and then it scoops low with a pretty bow in the back. So fun! I love it because you can dress it up or down and it just works. I paired it with my favorite lace up booties for a casual comfy look. See, who said the ‘mom uniform’ had to be boring?

Pink/Blue Striped Shirt

pinkblue+shirt+with+jeans
Top: StitchFix // Jeans: H&M (similar) // Shoes: c/o Zappos // Scarf: Parisian street vendor (similar)

This top is from StitchFix. Personally, I love this styling service. They send you a package monthly for $20 but the $20 will go toward if you purchase anything. It’s fun because it’s different, it’s easy, and you get pieces not everyone has. And I like that. But if you shop on the regular and have time for those types of things, this might not be the service for you. With two little boys that hate the word shopping, I don’t have a lot of time at all. That’s the main reason I love it!

Oh and this scarf is heavenly. I bought it from a street vendor in Paris. I need more.

Polka Dots & Jeans

polka+dot+shirt+with+jeans
Shirt: French store (similarsimilarsimilar) // Jeans: H&M (similar) // Shoes: Payless? (they’re old – similar)

Initially I wasn’t sure if I was way off with the colors. I mean, coral/pink/blue/black & white? Kinda all over the place, right? But it worked! I paired things together that I wouldn’t have otherwise done and thus creating outfits I didn’t know I had, thus expanding my wardrobe! 🙂 I knew I did this for a reason! This one is another super casual one but still cute. I’m really winning on these mom uniform outfits!

Colorful Mix

striped+shirt+&+blue+shorts
Shirt: StitchFix // Shorts: Windsor Store // Shoes: c/o Zappos

These shorts are cute, right? Is it a skirt? Is it shorts? It’s skorts! Haha totally kidding. But I love these crocheted tiered shorts. They are very comfortable. If you read this blog for a little bit, you might see a pattern. I’m always trying to find cute clothes that are comfortable and affordable. It’s like my mantra. This StitchFix top is blue and pink striped (it’s hard to see) but it makes it look kinda purple but still works with these shorts. It’s a bit funky but that’s part of why I like it!

So now that I’ve shared my nine outfits (sheesh!) it’s your turn!

    These outfits are rocking!!! It’s amazing what happens when you force yourself to only use a specific amount of clothes. You made each piece look completely different with each outfit.

    • Natalia October 2, 2013 at 5:05 am #

      Seriously! That’s why I love this challenge, it really makes me use what I have. Which I need because I really don’t get to shop too much. This is perfect!

  5. Autumn October 2, 2013 at 4:58 pm #

    Wow! You did awesome! I really wanted to participate in this, but just didn’t have time to put it together! My outfits aren’t nearly this creative, though!

    • Natalia October 3, 2013 at 6:50 am #

      I’m sure your outfits were creative!! Maybe next time, I want to make it a monthly linkup so people can either try it over again with new items or people who missed it first time around can try it! Hopefully you’ll be able to join then!

  6. Sarah October 3, 2013 at 5:48 pm #

    I am really dying for some lace-up boots. Yours are so great!

    • Natalia October 7, 2013 at 5:31 am #

      Oh I know, these were a must have this year. I’ve seen them around and always loved them, so I went for it! They have some for good prices though, I’m sure you can find some!

  7. kelli October 9, 2013 at 12:14 am #

    This looks so fun! I found you through The Pleated Poppy but I hope to do this next week on my blog.
    Thanks for sharing! OH, and a shirt with a bow in the back? Love it!

    • Natalia October 11, 2013 at 7:19 am #

      Isn’t that shirt fun? It’s one of my favorites because it’s also comfortable. I am glad you’re doing the challenge! I’d love to see them when you’re done. I am thinking about doing it next month too. You could link up then!
