Good morning! I have so many things to write about this week including my thoughts on Social Media Week Chicago, my first Midwest Style Blogger brunch, and the fact that I’m participating in Ma Nouvelle Mode’s 7×7 Remix!

I’m not going to write about ALL of those things today, though. Today I’m going to give you a tease of the 7×7 remix. What is it? Well, the challenge is to take 7  pieces of clothing (shoes and accessories don’t count) and make 7 outfits. Seriously.


This was actually much more difficult for me than I had anticipated. Mainly because I had to incorporate a lot of different aspects.

First, I wanted to participate in this week’s Inspiration Monday challenge.

Black and white pants, some leather, a black top, black pointed shoes? This is right up my alley! Especially since I just got this faux leather shell from Express. It’s adorable but it runs really small and you’ll definitely need a racerback bra to wear it, FYI.

Also, tomorrow’s Trend Spin is dresses and skirts so I needed to included at least one of those. And then, of course, I wanted to include both work and weekend looks.


So, I hope you’ll stick around this week so you can get all the details on each of the seven outfits and hear my stories from Social Media Week and blogger brunch!

P.S. I know. I cheated. If you count the cardigan I’m wearing today and my (faux) leather moto jacket I have 9 pieces. But I’m counting them as accessories. So there.
