7x7 | part two

I kept my promise, and I'm back with part two of my 7x7 workwear remix challenge! If you missed part one, be sure to go see the seven pieces being remixed and the first three looks I shared.

The staple item in today's part of the challenge is the J.Crew navy striped dress.

I'm a sucker for gold details, and I love how the gold turns the volume on this magenta + navy pairing up to 11. Also, this dress has pockets, y'all. Classy and fun. Side note: when shopping for dresses in the summer to wear to work, keep an eye out for lined linen dresses. I was a sweaty mess by this point in our photographing, but you couldn't tell a bit in this dress! It's cool and breezy, and it doesn't show sweat spots. #stylebloggerrealtalk

I actually wore this outfit to Indiana's going away shindig at Langford Market a few weeks back, but didn't have a chance to photograph it at the time. I wish I remembered to add my fluffy flower brooch to more outfits because I love it. Orange and navy will always be one of my favorite color combos, and I like how the flower detail adds just enough orange without beating you over the head with a reminder of your 5th grade art class lesson about complementary colors. Outfit bonus: clogs!

Which color combo do you prefer: navy and magenta or navy and orange?


  1. I'm loving this challenge for you! These last two posts are making me want to hunt down a magenta cardigan immediately!

  2. Don't make me choose! The navy + magenta is great for fall and the navy + orange is so spring/summery! I'm totally thinking I now need every piece of both of these outfits. Why oh why does blogging do that to ya??

  3. Navy and everything! I love both of these looks. And you should totally link up this post for Navy Week with me and Kate.

  4. I like how the accessories- the flower and the sparkly belt added a lot to the outfits making them more than dress+ cardi. Great looks.

  5. I really love both looks, but if I had to choose, the neutrals win it for me. I just love that fun floral pin you have to add that "pop."

    Something About That

  6. I adore both of these outfits! That dress seems really versatile - I think I like it most paired with magenta and that sparkly belt.

  7. I love the brooch! not sure I could pull it off, but you totally do!



  8. I love both of these outfits! I really love how the magenta gives contrast to the navy and white without being red, white, and blue, and the belted cardi looks adorable on you. Also, yes to lined dresses. I basically refuse to buy dresses that aren't either lined or made with a thick material anymore because I don't want to be fussing around with disguising a panty line or having to wear a slip.


  9. Super cute! I love both, but I particularly love the navy and orange- especially with those clogs and cute tan cardigan! So perfectly summery.

  10. Yes!! So cute!! You look adorable in this stripe dress in both outfits!

  11. The picture of you looking over your shoulder is the sweetest! I missed part one so I will have to catch up on this 7x7 concept. Magenta and navy are my favorite. There's a mental block for orange and navy for me. Orange I just can't get with. That dress is so perfect for you. I love seeing you remix it all the time.

  12. Oh my gosh, I LOVE both of these outfits! Just when I thought you couldn't get any more adorable...I love both the navy + magenta combo and the navy + orange combo...it's such a toss up!!!
