If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen the challenge going on! I’ve never done/hosted an Instagram challenge and I am quickly finding out that they are so much fun!! I am currently in Africa on a little vacation, but I thought I’d pop in and share a quick outfit I wore towards the beginning of the week and share my 7 pieces for the remix challenge.
Here are the pieces I chose:
It seems like a rather boring ensemble right off the bat, but you have to make all pieces work together. Since I was spending half the week where temperatures are in the 40’s and the other half with temps in the high 70’s, I wanted to make it a tad easier on myself. I feel like these pieces are pretty versatile.
Here is my first outfit.
The sun has been shining, despite the 40 degree weather and honestly, I’ll take it. No rain, not below freezing (often), and sun. Sounds beautiful to me! However, in Marrakech it will be in the mid to high 70’s which for Californians might still be a tad chilly, but coming from France it will feel fabulous. I’ll take it!
I figured I’d do most of the layering when I was in France because I knew it would be colder here and spend the second half of the week having the pieces stand alone more. I layer the chambray under my knit sweater. And I was warm. #WIN.
Scarves are a fabulous way to change up an outfit while still sticking to your 7 pieces. I did this day 2 as well and it looked like I had chosen a whole new piece! It did feel like cheating a little since the scarf is HUGE.
My cuff is from Bratislava but if you’re interested in something similar, I know that Nickel & Suede have some AMAZING leather pieces. This is my favorite. Their earrings are to DIE for. They’re so light you don’t even know they’re there. Mine were stolen when we were robbed, but I am fixin’ to get some new ones soon. I also know the owner of the shop, we were on Stitch Fix Vacay together and she’s pretty awesome.
If you’ve already joined the 7×7 Remix via Instagram, awesome!! So glad you’re joining the fun! If you’d still like to, come on over! You can check out more info here. It’s a really great way to take a different look at your wardrobe and challenge yourself to make the most of what you have. You don’t always need more to feel pretty!
Hope you have a fabulous day!
