Summer Remix: Outfits 1-8

Sunday, July 6, 2014

I have to confess, as soon as the Summer Remix Challenge was announced, I started picking pieces and wearing outfits made up of the pieces. I already am close to halfway through the challenge. Today I'm sharing my first 8 outfits.

This time, I wrote up a list of outfits based on the pieces and I'm checking them off as I wear them. It's been nice to have a list of outfit ideas to refer to and I was able to create a list of over 50 outfits - and I could make more! Really interesting to see how many options can be made from so few clothing choices.

 


Outfit 1: Maxi Dress + Scarf (thrifted) + Hoops (Avon) + Metallic Sandals (Payless)


Outfit 2: Plum Tee + Boyfriend Jeans + Necklace (Avon) + Sandals (Born via 6pm.com) + Cognac Bag (Apt. 9, thrifted)


Outfit 3: Black Tee + White Pants + Turquoise Scarf (Kohl's) + Turquoise Earrings (Avon) + Cognac Wedges (Leather, Merona, thrifted)

This outfit was inspired by this pin.


This bracelet is one my favorites. My friend bought it for me from a street vendor in Brazil. Love the colors and it worked perfectly with this outfit!


Outfit 4: Blue Tee + Tan Pants + Scarf (Clothes Mentor) + Earrings (Meijer) + Sandals (Born)


Outfit 5: Grey Tee + Denim Shorts + Tennis Shoes (Saucony via 6pm.com) + Scarf (Maurices)


Outfit 6: Pastel Button Down + Black Shorts + Metallic Sandals (Payless) + Fedora (JCPenney)


Outfit 7: Striped Dress + Denim Vest + Cognac Wedges + Turquoise Jewelry (Avon)


Outfit 8: Maxi Skirt + Blue Tee + Necklace + Earrings + Metallic Sandals

Let's see...it has been a long time since I've worn shorts. I only own 2 pairs, the ones shown above, except for running shorts. The black shorts or super old and the denim ones were thrifted fairly recently. I think I liked outfits 2, 3, and 6 the best and number 8 the least. The maxi skirt and dress have been super comfy for busy days at work so far.

Haha, I love that you started early! :)
#s 2 & 7 are my favorites - maybe you would've liked #8 better with a belted or knotted waist?

Carly,
You picked some very versatile pieces for this remix. Love the gray maxi.

I love that you started early, too! I normally do, but with vacation, it didn't happen. The list of outfits to go from is a great way to not feel overwhelmed and just work your way through the challenge. Looking forward to seeing more, Carly! You picked such versatile pieces. Way to go!

Great outfits! I love how the scarves add to it all!

Way to get a ahead! The first three are my favorites. I agree with Selah on #8, it needs something to give it more of a waistline. Maybe even tucking it in, or partial tucking?

I really like the boyfriend jeans in your second outfit and the way you tied your scarf in the third outfit!
