I have a confession to make – my wardrobe causes me a lot of grief. Just ask anyone – my husband, mom, even my colleagues. I’m always complaining that I have nothing to wear even though I have a closet full of great clothes. I know I’m being silly when I look at my wardrobe and declare “I hate everything!!!” I think my major problem is that I seem to lack imagination when it comes to putting outfits together; gravitating to the same old pieces and tried-and-true combinations.
One of these days I plan to spend an entire day in my closet, creating outfits and taking photos of each ensemble for future reference. Sounds like a tall order, huh? Well in the meantime, I thought I would start with a wardrobe remix challenge hosted by one of my favorite blogs: Putting Me Together. Audrey challenged her readers to create seven outfits from seven pieces (including shoes). The wardrobe I selected is made up of this season’s purchases and a few old favorites (including my chambray shirt that seems to go with everything!). Here are my seven pieces:
- Peplum top from ??? (cannot read the brand label lol)
- Black & white stripped skirt from Ya Los Angeles
- Chambray shirt from Guess (old)
- Cropped Hudson jeans from Lord & Taylor
- Skinny jeans from Old Navy
- Skater dress from Express
- B.O.C Born sandals from DSW (old)
The challenge was a lot of fun and I did manage to come up with some surprising pairings. Here are the results:
Here’s a breakdown of each outfit:
Guess chambray shirt; B&W stripped skirt; BOC Born sandals; John Hardy bracelet; Burberry watch
Old Navy jeans; Guess chambray shirt; BOC Born sandals; Dalita necklace
