7 Pieces, 7 Outfits

Whelp, here's my first attempt at a link up. Audrey at Putting Me Together is helping to host a link up for 7 pieces and 7 outfits. I chose:

Green skirt- Forever 21
Mint shorts- Target
Striped Dress- H&M
Black cardigan- Express
Chambray shirt- Tilly's
White shirt- Forever 21
Wedges- Payless

I tried to choose clothes that can be worn in different ways with different items. Some were neutrals and some had patterns or colors. 

Outfit #1

I love my mint shorts and it was obvious to pair them with my chambray shirt. A bonus is you can wear the shirt in different ways depending on the look you want. 

Outfit #2

Can you believe this dress was only $12?! I wear it so much and it goes with so many things. I couldn't decide if I liked the necklace or scarf so I am including pictures of both.

Outfit #3

I haven't had a chance to wear this skirt yet, but I included it to see how it would work with other items in my closet. The bright green is so fun!

Outfit #4

 The chambray makes the outfit more casual. I added the belt to help define my waist.

Outfit #5

 I think the black cardigan makes it more formal. Black heels would be cute with this, too.

Outfit #6

 This is an easy summer outfit, but I think the detail on the collar of the shirt and color of the shorts help make it look more polished.

Outfit #7

I totally stole this look from Franish. I had similar items and thought it was a great way to style a striped shirt dress.

Outfit #?

I'm not sure if I would wear this shirt over the dress or not. You can kind of see the stripes through it. Maybe if I had tried the black cardigan over top it would have looked better. I included this as another option. I should also have tried the chambray shirt over the dress instead. Another time! 


  1. Hi fellow Laura :) I found your blog through the link up. I really like that you showed different ways to style the first 2 outfits - great ideas! I love the $12 dress, what a steal!

    1. Thank you! I saw the dress still at H&M a couple weeks ago. P.S. You have a fabulous name! :)

  2. I really like all your outfits! Love the striped dress and green skirt.

  3. I love your take on the chambray +striped dress combo. It's perfect for those slighly cooler summer days :)

    1. Thanks! Learning to layer is crucial for surviving Wisconsin weather, especially by the lake!

  4. I think you did a great job making the outfits look different through accessorizing. And it looks like that skirt is going to serve you well!

    1. Thanks! Your blog encouraged me to get more color in my closet!

    1. I'm following you back on bloglovin! You have some adorable outfits on your blog!

  6. Hi Laura, I just discovered your blog. I am writing from Germany. I like your outfits, especially the striped dress and the possibilities you have shown with it. Wearing the dress OVER the blouse would have never come to my mind. Great. I need to sew a dress like this.

    1. Hi Elke, thanks for your comment! I saw a similar outfit (dress over a shirt) on another blog and thought it was a great idea, too! I wish I had the talent to sew a dress like that, I am still learning the basics.

  7. Nice post. Thank you very much. Iam going to share this post. :)
