The Takeaway’s

1.  Accessories are a girl’s best friend.  They can take even the most basic outfit (white on white) and turn it into something really special.

2.  When you run out of outfit ideas, ask your kids.  They are more creative anyway.  My girls helped style every one of these outfits!

3.  Pick neutral shoes with a little bit of interest.  The cobalt blue on my wedges was a nice touch in each outfit.

4.  My closet is WAY more versatile than I thought.  I discovered new ways to wear my old basics and even created some new favorite outfits.

5.  I’ll be packing much lighter for our beach vacation next month!

  1. I am so excited about this Alison! I linked up with you and Audrey – two of my favorite bloggers! I hope I did it correctly!! Thanks for this opportunity! I love you wedges and how you styled white with white! You are always fabulous! Blessings. Susan

  2. Hi there, I just stumbled across your site via Charming Lucy who was taking part in the Remix challenge, and I love it! Hope to pop by again soon, I am a fledgling style blogger, any tips would be super appreciated! x

  3. WOW! Great outfits friend! I think the striped tee with the red shorts is my favorite! Or maybe the all white with the pop of color in your necklace and clutch?!?

  4. You dis a great job with the remix! I am going to try this because I wanted to do it but didn’t want to do it for 30 days because I have to dress up so much for work but then like to be really casual at night and on the weekend. But 7 days is perfect!

  5. I love this idea and you came up with some great outfits! I totally wanted to take part but already had another collaboration planned. Thanks for the link up!

  6. I love that you used the same pair of shoes in all of the outfits. I am always tempted to back 3-4 pairs of shoes whenever I go on vacation and this is such great inspiration to just choose the most versatile pair and go with it!

  7. I loved this challenge! And I honestly did pack the 7 pieces for my vacation. Love every single one of your outfits. It’s not often I see a whole collection where I would personally wear every single outfit, but I would wear all 7 X 7 of yours! THANK YOU for hosting! xoxo jules

  8. Love all the outfits, great job mixing and matching! I totally missed this challenge! It would’ve helped me shop my closet which I’m trying to do more of!

  9. Wow! That is just amazing how many outfits you were able to create with those pieces!! I love every one of them! You’re never know that so many pieces were re-used. And I’m super excited for your vacation!!!

  10. I’m seriously impressed with your mix of outfits. I like each one of them! Great job! I’m packing for a trip in a couple of weeks and will take some of your ideas when I choose what clothes to take with me.

  11. Great remixes! Especially like your shoes……. where are they from?
    Also, I can’t for the life of me figure out what the number-in-a-circle on the top right hand of your posts represents. It’s OCD-a-driving me crazy and I’m sure that it is something so simple that I’m completely not-able-to-see-the-forest-for-all-the-trees-in-the-way! Can you clarify for me?
    Thanks!

  12. You definitely nailed the 7×7 challenge! All your outfits are so cute and summery! And this post also served as a reminder that I need white jeans. I have tried them on at so many different stores and I always feel like… a marshmallow haha. ANYWAY, I had such a great time doing the 7×7 challenge – I’m thinking this should maybe be a seasonal thing?!

  13. I love all your looks! I’ve been wanting to try white on white, and I love how you paired it with a fun colorful necklace. I will be giving that a try soon!!! Thanks for the inspiration!

  14. This post is making me re-think my closet. I’m always feeling like I don’t have anything to wear. If I just pick seven items at the start of the week and work it – who knows what fabulousness I could come up with. Sweet!

  15. Look #1 is my favorite!

    I did the 7×7 challenge, too, and you’re so right on takeaway #4 – my closet is much more versatile than I thought, if I can make so many outfits with just 7 pieces.

    1. Yes please, that chambray shirt is beautiful! Please let us know where you got that from. Thanks!

      1. Hey girls! Believe it or not, my chambray is from Walmart! I saw it in Lucky magazine last summer and had to have it. They were sold out in stores but I ended up getting it online for only $12! It’s such a great shirt. I wore it today. 🙂

  16. Very nice outfit ideas! My fave would be the chambray and white capri with the brown bag. I really enjoyed this link up, I’m excited to join next time. 🙂

  17. I learned the importance of accessories! I didn’t add any, but looking back at my photos I really see how they add visual interest to an outfit and take something basic into something pulled together and stylish! I also learned to love my wedges. They haven’t seen too much wear, but I’m loving that they go with everything.

  18. It’s awesome that you got 7 outfits out of just 7 different pieces! I’m gonna go raid my closet and do this 🙂 All your outfits look great. I love the white on white look you did. Hopefully I’ll get brave enough to try it. 🙂

  19. I love all your looks! You did a great job of mixing and matching. I have to admit this challenge was a toughie. But I loved it becuase it forced me to be creative. You know the saying, necessity it the mother of invention? That really does apply. A couple of the mixes I came up with I probably would not have thought of without the little push of the challenge. 🙂

  20. This blows my mind! I’m so inspired to dig through my closet and give this a try. I love each outfit you created, they are all so different that is hard to remember you’re only working with 7 pieces! Well done!!!

  21. I like how all your outfits looked so chic and classy. You had the perfect capsule wardrobe color pallet. I loved the looks!

  22. Alison!!!!!! Why am I just now seeing this post???? It’s aaaahhhhmazing! The outfits are off the charts and the links are fabulous. So glad I found this through today’s post! Thank you so much for all you do to help us GYPO!

  23. Would LOVE to know where you go those shoes? Or who make them? Love them! And all the outfits! This is great inspiration for travel packing. 🙂

  24. Where did you get those red pants and the striped tee? I can’t find decent red pants anywhere! Love these picks!

    Thanks!
