what i wore wednesday


i was a bit of a failure in the picture taking department this week.  i was busy at home prepping for blog sugar and snapping a pic was the last thing on my mind.  i thought for sure i’d have some cute pics to share once i was away for the weekend, but i didn’t take my camera out of my bag all weekend!

before i headed out of town

plain white t – forever 21 – $3.  how do they do it so cheap?!

cardi – target

jeans – local shop

sandals – walmart

necklace – allora handmade (blush – sooo pretty!)

yes, this is a pic from last week, but its what i wore on saturday (plus my new allora necklace) when i met mique, jeannett, and maggie in the garment district in l.a. to do a little fabric shopping.  we later met up with jess and ruthanne for some serious fun (6 of us in one hotel room!).

top – forever 21

jeans – older than old

sandals – walmart

saturday – again, no pics, but if you go to ruthanne’s photo blog you can see a couple slivers of my outfit that i wore to the blog sugar speaker’s dinner.

cardi – target

top & jeans – forever 21

shoes – target

ruffled scarf – the pleated poppy (more coming soon)

petal pusher – the pleated poppy

i had to be a thief to get these pics from sunday at blog sugar.  shamelessly stole this one from alissa!

sunnies & top – forever 21

1.  link to your specific blog post, not your blog’s main page.  ex: http://thepleatedpoppy.com/2011/09/what-i-wore-wednesday-fall-inspiration/  not  http://thepleatedpoppy.com/blog/.

2.  please only link outfit related posts.  your craft project may be adorable, or that may be a great giveaway, but this linky is for outfit related posts only – thank you!

3.  please please please link back here to me so all this wiww stuff makes sense to your readers.  and its just nice to do ;)  grab a button from my sidebar (see the code box?).

4.  check out as many links as possible!  i am constantly inspired by so many outfits each week!  and you will definitely find some new blogs that you’ve never stumbled upon before – so fun!

    You are always so cute! You probably don’t even need to take pics anymore! But thanks for the weekly inspiration!

  2. 2

    I was following your tweets all night and glad you found pics. I am so bummed that I didn’t attend Blog Sugar to meet you! Love the pic of you and Alissa! You always make cardigans look so cute and non fussy. Love it!

  3. 3

    Loved your top at Blog Sugar. You are so Cute.

  4. 4

    Sorry I couldn’t help with pics! I loved that top from Blog Sugar. I tried to figure out whether you added the flowers or found it that way. As always, so cute.

  5. 5

    Even when your not trying you still manage to look super cute!
    I am not addicted to cardigans thanks to you.. I’ve ventured out of my comfort zone with color
    and am loving it. Thank you so much for doing this and inspiring all of us!

    I love your tops! What cute clothes!

    So you and the ladies on here inspired me to finally buy skinny jeans and boots…which I love. However I am having a hard time keeping them up! I feel like after one wear I am yanking on them all day. Worse than regular jeans I think b/c the tight leg seems to make them pull down easier. I got the GAP Always Skinny in a dark wash. I’m tempted to wear a belt but that really doesn’t work if you are going to wear a belt over the top too. Just a bad pair? Does this happen to anyone else? Maybe I should get them taken in at the waist? Thoughts?

    Love your new Allora necklace. Blush looks gorgeous on you.

    As always, your effortless, put-together outfits are great inspiration for us.

    Lindsey, you always are a good reminder for me to embark upon F21. The store is just so huge and overwhelming that I need to prepare myself to take the hunt. Finds are always worth it but I need a nap afterwards!

  13. 13

    i love that forever 21 tank! so cute.
    thanks for hosting! :)

  14. 14

    Looks like you had a great time! Love your necklace in the first pic, very pretty!

    i love you. a whole lot.

    I’m only mentioning this because you asked, but Forever 21 can offer clothes so cheaply because of their less than admirable business practices.

    They are one of the top 5 offenders when it comes to sweatshop and child labor practices, according to the reputable news sources I’ve linked below. I had no idea either until I saw a documentary about it on PBS. Anyway, not trying to be a punk in your comments, but felt like it was good to mention since you asked. I’m learning a lot about Fair Trade products. They’re harder to find than I first thought.



    Anyway, sorry for the Debbie Downer comment. You are absolutely beautiful. I love your style and your WIWW series. It’s one of my faves.

  18. 18

    just found your blog and joined your link up. how fun! following along now ;)

    Hugs, Bella :)

  22. 22

  23. 23

    Adorable looks!

  24. 24

    Blog Sugar sounded like so much fun! I wish I could have attended, maybe next time. Especially, love your WIWW posts. Have a great night!

  25. 25

    I have watched you post your outfits on here for what seems like forever now, and I must say your hair is looking super awesome…it is always cute, but I am really liking it long and pulled back. I think I might even consider growing mine out now. Cute clothes, too:)

  26. 26

    adorable, as usual! i love that allora necklace. you are looking so skinny (skinnier than usual! :) how’s the 30 day shred? you should do a post on it and tell us how it’s going. i need some motivation to work out!

  27. 27

    So many sweet outfits. I’m loving all the pops of color and texture.

  28. 28

    Hi Lindsey, I’m new here! Thank you for the great inspiration to peel off my sweats and attempt to look more together this week. What a difference! Let’s see my daughter tell me I’m old looking now!
