7×7 Remix Challenge Roundup

It’s round up time!!

If you followed along on Instagram or joined the challenge, you know what I’m talking about. Last week me and Molly created a fun little challenge to dare you to make the most of your wardrobe. More often than not we are pressured to buy more, that we need more and that more will make us happier.

Well, I don’t buy it!! I think we can be just as happy, if not happier, will smaller wardrobes and less items of clothing. That’s why I love this 7×7 remix challenge. If you’re new to it, let me give you an overview. Basically you take 7 pieces of clothing and wear them as many ways as you can for 7 days — doing your best not to repeat. The challenge does not include accessories or shoes, so you have some freedom there.

I really feel like I should live my life like this. I really really enjoyed this challenge this time around! Since I was taking my trip to Africa while on the challenge it was the perfect way to pack light and still wear cute outfits. I felt great every day — outfit wise — and all the outfits weren’t hard to create. I almost think I could have created more!

Now today is where we share all our outfits and reveal the winner of the $50 gift card!! Here were the items I was working with:

7x7 remix

  1. Jeans
  2. Gold Jeggings
  3. Pattern shirt
  4. Cream Sweater
  5. Gold Dress
  6. Chambray
  7. White flow shirt

At first the all seemed rather boring and like not much of a challenge because they were in the same color scheme. But I still feeling like I was able to create outfits that were unique from each other as well.

 Day one:

7x7 remix day 1

I was still in France for this one so it was chilly. Going between the two countries with such different climates was difficult, but it actually all worked out! You can’t see here, but I layered the chambray shirt under the sweater and then added the gold knit scarf. It was warm and I felt cute!

Day 2:

Day 2

I had completely intended to shower, wash my hair, style it nicely, put on some lovely makeup and rock this day. Well, I showered and washed my hair and that’s as far as I got! We had a friends birthday party and I had to pack the boys and myself and get everything set for our travel day. We also stayed in a hotel this evening to get to the airport nice and early for our 6:00 AM flight. I am not wearing a stitch of makeup here, as I’m sure you can tell. I also almost felt like I cheated with this scarf as a shawl. It changed the style and color scheme of the whole outfit!

 Day 3:

day 3

We got stuck in the airport for 5 hours, but we arrived! Another no makeup day and really laid back over all. The weather was a lot warmer so I didn’t have to worry about layering so much. I wore the pattern shirt with the chambray over and the gold jeggings. I like to wear my riding boots when I travel because they’re easy to get on and off. I also always have socks on which is perfect for the security lines in airports. I have never worn this outfit, but I liked it!

Day 4:

day 4

We rode camels on day 4!! I knew we were going to be doing this so I wanted something comfortable and practical. So I went with Denim on denim, half-tucked my chambray and added a leopard scarf to break it up a bit. To be honest, I’ve never been a fan of double denim, but I like this look a lot!

Day 5:

day 5

This was probably my favorite. I got this dress at H&M a little while ago and I love it. It’s flowy and comfortable and I really like the golden color. It doesn’t have much shape, but with a cute belt cinched at the waist, you’re good to go. I paired it with my purple-ish tights (what color are those?) and an old scarf that happened to go perfectly! And isn’t the backdrop amazing? A taxi driver took us to a little ‘garden’ that really only locals go to. The boys fed the fish and we took pictures. It was really pretty! My son took this, nice job, huh?!

Day 6:

day 6

So… Day six we got attached with something. The flu, we ate something bad, a nasty little bug or something. It was bad. Me and my little guy threw up during the night, then me and my other son during the day. Way too much throw up going on for a vacation! Needless to say, I did not change out of my pajamas! This picture is from the day after that when we met up with friends who live in Marrakech and then headed to the center to get our Henna tattoos! It is actually somewhat on a redo since I wore this plus the chambray the first day. But I was sick and not thinking correctly and I give myself a break. 🙂

Day 7:

day 7

This I did back at home even after the 7 days was done. Because of my sick day and travel day I had missed one of the seven. I did not want to not finish!! I also had this outfit in mind and really wanted to wear it. Although, of course, it works a lot better in the warmer weather of Morocco! I just tied the chambray over the dress for some shape and a pair of booties finishes it off! I would have worn tights or something with it because it was cold, but I was inside most of the day.

I think the two dresses are my favorite outfits of all! What about you guys, which ones did you like? If you completed the challenge, what did you think? Was it hard? Would you do it again? I know I am gonna do it again soon!!

And now for the WINNER!! There were a few of you who completed the challenge as well — you ROCK! Molly and I promised $50 to one winner to spend where they wanted, so here it is! Without further adieu… chosen with random.org, the winner is…

@gracenote30!

Congratulations and thank you so much for playing along!! Hope more of you can join next time!

Have you done a challenge like this? If so, what did you think?

    Where did you get your chambray shirt? I need one and yours seems nice and long.

      Girl, I got it in Sweden!! It is my absolute favorite, it’s soft and long and fits perfectly. Unfortunately, I have no recommendations where to get a good one! I love it so much I’d fly back to Sweden to grab another lol!

        Oh man! What’s the name of the store? I have a friend who lives there. Maybe I can get her to go look for me 🙂

          Oh man, I can’t remember! I’ll try to ask my friend and let you know!

    Natalia,
    I just came across your blog. I’m so impressed that you were able to keep up a 7×7 style challenge while on vacay (with your littles) in Africa! Kudos girl!

    Wow, this is truly inspiring, not only as a challenger, I think I can just turn this into a habit myself 🙂 to reduce my laundry every week, lol. But, seriously I would love to join this one in the future ^^
