I Feel Pretty | Remixed

Seven pieces for seven days!  Yes, it’s entirely possible.  Today’s the big reveal of my seven pieces and how I paired them up to create a week’s worth of outfits.

The Pieces

1.  Chambray/2.  White Tee/3.  Wedges/4.  Striped Tee/5.  Coral Jeans/6.  White Capri Jeans/7.  Red Shorts

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!

    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?!?

    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!

    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!

    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

    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!

    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!

    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?!

    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!

    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.

        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. 🙂

    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.

    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. 🙂

    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!
