7x7 Challenge #2

I am so excited to be doing my second 7x7 Challenge! You can check out my first 7x7 Challenge here. The first 7x7 Challenge was tough because shoes were included as one of your seven items. This time shoes counted as accessories and accessories are unlimited! Even if this second challenge was a little easier it still really pushed me to find new ways to mix and match. In fact, I ended up coming up with ten outfits from my seven pieces (and I unintentionally only wore the green blouse with one look so you can see how you could easily come up with 15+ outfits with just these seven pieces).


7x7 Challenge

1. Mint 3/4 Sleeve Blazer - Burlington Coat Factory, similar
2. Green Silk Blouse - Ann Taylor, similar
3. Sequin Tank - J Crew Factory, similar
4. Ivory Neck-tie Blouse - Banana Republic Outlet, similar
5. Dots Sweater - GAP
6. Navy Lace Skirt - Forever 21
7. Navy Capris - J Crew Factory

Now for the fun part....the outfits!

7x7 Challenge

I always learn from doing challenges like this one. Necessity is indeed the mother of invention! Thanks to Ma Nouvelle Mode for hosting! Hope everyone is having a great week.

**If you are so inclined, prayers would be really appreciated for my grandfather who is nearing the end of his time here on earth at nearly 97 years old. My heart is heavy. I try to focus on the fact that he will soon be out of pain, free from the cruelty that is dementia, and reunited with my grandmother.



Also linking up with these lovely ladies today and tomorrow!
