Fashion Mixology: 8 Outfits from 8 Pieces

FASHION MIXOLOGYHi there! Today we're excited to bring you a brand new Fashion Mixology. If you haven't read our mixology posts before, the concept is simply this- We take 8 pieces of clothing and make 8 different looks with those pieces. Shoes and accessories don't count. The goal of this feature is to inspire confidence and ideas to stretch your wardrobe farther! For today's edition we partnered up with Lulu's! They sent us some pretty pieces to mix and match. Enjoy!1-2Look One/ Some of my favorite looks this season are made up of denim and chambray. This comfy dress with tights is super easy to wear. Look Two/ For a super casual day I pair skinny jeans with sparkly shoes and a scarf with a cute top!3-4Look Three/ This lace tunic is super comfy and I love wearing it styled like this for a casual look. I also can't wait to wear it to the beach as a breezy cover-up! Look Four/ This striped skirt (see Look Eight) can also be worn as a dress! I love it paired with a skinny aqua belt and chunky necklace!5-6Look Five/ I love a simple outfit with one crazy detail. These platforms are crazy by any account because they make me six feet tall. I'm into nautical inspired looks! Look Six/ This lace dress (also seen in Look Seven) is fun when layered with this cute lilac top from Look Two!7-8Look Seven/ I adore this lace dress. It's really flattering with a low back. Layered necklaces and a felt hat help make this look special. Look Eight/ I adore this striped maxi skirt. Truth be told, I can't get enough stripes this year. My entire closet is becoming a huge black and white patterned collection! Because of my height (5'4) I never considered wearing long skirts until recently. I've learned that when paired with a comfy pair of heeled clogs maxi skirts can actually make me feel taller. I love any high waisted cut, so this is pretty perfect. We hope you've enjoyed this mixology! It's one of our favorite features to photograph together. Here are a few past Fashion Mixologys/ 1234 xoxo. elsie

  • What a brilliant idea! I think numbers 1, 6, and 8 are my favorites (though all of these outfits look adorable). All too frequently I find myself growing tired of my usual outfits and clothing pieces I wear. I’m so excited to take a look in my closet and start trying different pieces together. Thanks for all of these great new ideas!

  • I think these outfits are great. I especially adore 1, 7, and 8. Maxis and Lace are my life. 🙂

  • You have a great talent. I love the stripes dress and the different chunky shoes! I will be watching for your blogs always.

  • Absolutely LOVE 3,4, and 7… great boho inspired pieces and fabulous heels!

  • These are so cute looking over this blog has really made me want to start my own blog you guys seem so confident and beautiful and i really need that right now Thank you even though i dont know you guys these pictures and tips are helpful 🙂

  • I love look #5 just because of those killer platformssss! Love those so much I just got a similar pair! 🙂

  • Love love number 6, that pop of the purple collar and gorgeous mermaid up do hair.

  • Outfit 3 and 7 are my favorites!! Love it!!


  • my favorite looks are 3 and 7! cute post – such creative styling!


  • I’m also 5’4″ so avoid long skirts as I think they make me look dumpy – but after reading this, I think I’ve changed my mind. You definitely look taller in your pictures.

  • I love when you do this feature! I always feel inspired to make new looks out of existing items in my closet that have gotten a little boring 🙂

  • unbelievable how the long striped dress is extending in the lenght optical 🙂 great!!!

  • Aaaaaah love all of these looks. And I think you’re right about the blood orange platforms–they completely change the look. It wouldn’t be the same with say, black shoes. And the white dress–LOVES it! The stripy skirt does work great as a dress too.

    Great feature idea.

  • That dress in 6 and 7 is super amazing! 🙂

  • Chambray has become one of my favorite fabrics to wear! It looks great with so much.

    Outfits Three and Seven seem like they’re going to be perfect to transition from Spring to Summer!
    How do you find all this great stuff?!

  • Your goal was accomplished because I am inspired to see what I can mix and match in my closet now (: I only recently started following your page and I love it! There are so many great DIYs and I want to try them all haha

  • Elsie as much as I love the outfits, I have to agree, YOUR HAIR STEALS THE SHOW!!! 🙂 It looks great! I think I remember you said something about some kind of extensions on instagram. I am very interested in what you use, as extensions can cause such damage to your real hair. Could you possibly do a post? Some of us gals would love to know! Your hair looks amazing!

  • You can find that Billabong Stipped dress/skirt at too!! 🙂

  • I just love you in that lace tunic and lace dress! You look beautiful!

    Thanks for these awesome posts.

    Hope you guys have a great Easter weekend.

  • This is a great idea! I’ll have to start going through my closet and putting together outfits. I love that striped dress!

  • These looks are amazing!! I love so many of them, especially the ones with the lace dress. But, *gasp* for some reason I can’t pin of these looks on Pintrest. 🙁


  • Very good post sometimes you really don’t think how much your pieces will stretch!! I’m running to my closet to play dress up now !
