The idea is simple- pick seven pieces from your wardrobe (including shoes) and create seven outfits. Audrey truly is the queen of this, so I followed her "formula" closely, picking three tops, three bottoms and one pair of sandals. Here are the seven pieces I picked!
My pieces include:
1 Black Maxi Dress from Old Navy (Similar)
1 Slouchy Top in a Bright Color from Old Navy (Exact)
1 Brightly Colored, Lightweight Cardigan from Lane Bryant (Similar)
1 Funky Printed Tank Top from Forever 21 (Exact)
1 Pair of Neutral Wedges from Kohl's (Similar)
1 Pair of Cut-Off Shorts from Old Navy (Exact)
1 Pair of White Pants from Old Navy (Exact)
Here are the outfits I created by mixing and matching my pieces.
Outfit # 1
Funky and bright was the intention of most of my seven outfits. I flipped for this elephant tank from Forever 21, and I know it will be well-worn this summer. I paired it with simple cut-offs and a light-weight cardigan. Even though I live in the South, cardigans are still a summertime necessity thanks to super-powered A/C in the car, the house, the theater, the restaurant, etc.,etc.
Outfit # 2
I replaced the tank and cardigan with an oversized, slouchy orange top for this outfit. I am in love with the color orange for this summer, so this top was a no brainer! I am wearing a tried and true pair of neutral wedges with all of these outfits. This is great for packing because I am usually the gal who packs more shoes than clothes!
Outfit # 3
I love how the turquoise in the sweater and the mosaic colors in the tank pop against these great white pants. I don't get a lot of wear out of pants in the summer months, but these can easily be interchanged for my white shorts!
Outfit # 4
I think this was my favorite of the bunch. Instead of picking a maxi skirt as one of my pieces, I chose this dress. The dress is an outfit all it's on, and it can count as a bottom when layered with my tops- like this off-the-shoulder one!
Outfit # 5
Or maybe this one is my favorite... I really can't get over this tank top! I could also take off the cardigan if I was somewhere that was super hot.
Outfit # 6
I didn't pair jewelry with any of these outfits, because later I want to do a post talking about how easily you can use jewelry and accessories to dress up or dress down an outfit! Stay tuned :)
Outfit # 7
Wondering why this outfit is inside while all the rest were taken outside? Well, I am an English teacher! I thought I had already taken 7 outfit photos until I started putting this post together late Tuesday night... then I realized, I am an idiot and scrambled to take another one! Yep.
