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!

  • 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

  • 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?!?

  • Okay I love the remix idea! Its kind of an interesting challenge. Totally participating if it happens again…

  • Great idea! Love the 7×7 concept! Fun inspiration. Thanks!!

  • I love your red shorts and bright capris! A little pop of color can make a whole outfit stand-out, very cute!

  • You make remixing look so easy! I love your coral jeans and white tee outfit. Like you said, accessories make such a big difference. Hope to participate in your next remix challenge 🙂

  • 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!

  • Awesome job with your remix! I had a lot of fun doing this, thanks for posting earlier and letting us get in on it! 🙂

  • 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!

  • You definitely are the Queen Alison of Remix. All your looks are so FAB & really works I will always be a remix kind of girl too……it’s fun, stylish yet so economical.


  • 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!

  • So many cute looks! Love those wedges!

  • 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

  • You did an amazing job! It just goes to show that black, white and red are classics and can be remixed so many different ways. Great job!

  • I learned – how important accessories are and how you can really mix and match!!! Thanks for a fun challenge!

  • I love Sierra’s outfit! Great idea mixing and matching those 7 pieces, I love it!

  • I love each of the 7 pieces individually, but even more all together. You did a great job!

  • 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!

  • 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!!!

  • Love this challenge! What a great idea. I think I need to try it with my own closet.

  • Love those remix outfits! Once I start teaching and actually get out of my PJs I am going to do this challenge!

  • OMG, great remixing! Love the way all the looks come together with just few basic pieces!! Gorgeous! Hope you are having a wonderful day!

  • This is a great remix Alison! I wanted to participate but the planning was just a bit too much for me…I am terribly lazy am I? 🙂

    For me, this challenge is tough with only 1 pair of shoes. I love all of the outfits!


  • You did really well with this Alison! I thought about doing this challenge but I felt limited. I think I just may give it a try. 🙂 I really like the white top and coral jeans look.


  • 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.

    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?

  • 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?!

  • Love all your looks Alison. Great job on the 7×7.

    Link up tomorrow for my weekly tres-chic fashion thursday link up.



  • You did such an awesome job! Love how you paired everything. Your blog is adorable too! And not to be creepy, but you’ve got some hot legs girl! Jealous! 🙂

  • 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!


  • LOVE the wedges! And the white crops are FAB!!

  • I love your remix outfits! I really need a pair of white pants and a pair of coral pants. Every outfit is something I would wear! And I totally agree, accessories make a HUGE difference!

    My 7X7 Remix
    Exploring My Style

  • 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!

  • LOVE all of your outfits!!! I really, really need to do this with mine…I’m kinda losing inspiration these days.

  • Rachel

    all of your outfits look gorgeous!!
    I really love the all-white look. your clothes fit you so well!

  • Great job, Alison! I loved the Takeaways that you wrote at the end. Such great reflections!

  • 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.

  • Stacy

    Love your outfits! Where did you get that chambray shirt?? Cutest one I have seen so far:)

    • psals

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

      • Alison

        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. 🙂

  • 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. 🙂

  • Great remix looks
    I have got to get a short sleeved chambray shirt!

  • 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.

  • hl

    Fun! I need to do this with my work clothes. I’m getting really bored with my work attire.

  • Great outfit ideas! That’s so fun that your girls helped out too. Love those sandals!

  • 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. 🙂

  • 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. 🙂

    My 7×7 Remix!

  • 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!!!

  • Love your remix outfit! So cute!

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

  • These are awesome! I think my favorite in the collection. Might have to go buy all of these, ummmm, today. But 7 pieces aint too bad!

  • I love this idea! Wish I would have seen it and joined in! I love that you chose basic pieces and let accessories complete the outfit. My favorite outfit is probably number 3 and you look totally sexy in the all white look!

  • such great outfits! I love every single piece in the challenge 🙂

  • This is perfect for travelling, although I’d switch out the white jeans for something that travels better.


  • Gorgeous, gorgeous outfits! Each and every one of them. Summer look perfection!

  • I love the theme this week – you nailed each look – LOVE IT!!

    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. 🙂

  • Love this! It’s because of you I now have white jeans in my closet (from NYC, LOVE them!). I have 4 kids so I’ve always been afraid of white but I can always bleach them. 🙂
    I did a 7×7 a few years ago, too- but I didn’t count shoes in mine. 🙂 It’s here —> http://www.eatprayreadlove.com/wiww-7-pieces-7-outfits/

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


  • This is an all time favorite!
