what i wore wednesday

welcome to what i wore wednesday!  in case you’re new here, here’s a little background on what all this craziness is about:  after years of staying home with my kids, my effort in the style department was in serious decline.  i mean, i felt like putting on sweats and a baseball hat was getting dressed!  most days i didn’t bother getting out of my pj’s.  one day i decided to start posting pics of my daily outfits on my blog to motivate myself to put a little more effort into my appearance.  and so my weekly post of “what i wore wednesday” was born!

what i wore wednesday at the pleated poppy

this week i went back east to pennsylvania for allume.  it was an exhausting weekend, but i am really glad i went.  lots of late nights and early mornings – i should be used to it, but i feel like i am still catching up on my sleep.

this is kind of my standard travel outfit:

cardigan – all saints

top – banana republic

jeans – target

boots – steve madden

i know its easier to travel wearing flats rather than boots, but i was only taking a carry on and i didn’t want to try to squeeze my boots into it, so on they went!

    I am just SMITTEN with those flats!! Good thing I didn’t see them at Target — I would’ve nabbed them for sure. And goodness knows I already have plenty of shoes. ;)

  4. 4

    Those flats are fantastic! I am in love with that pink pant, turquoise necklace ensemble. I have that necklace, of course, in yellow. I would love it in turquoise too. You look great, as always!

    I just adore all the outfits! I wish you could style me for our upcoming family photos. I feel so blah! :)

    Oh, and to think I skipped over those flats on the clearance rack! Ack! They would have gone w/ my coral pants!

  15. 18

    Those flats are really cute! And I love how you played with layering, especially on that first and last pictures! They’re casual but very stylish outfits!


  16. 19

    I adore that first outfit – it looks comfy and fun with the ruffles under the asymmetric cardigan!

  17. 20

    I love all your scarves! You just gave me a nice idea of adding a flower to it. Such a cute style.. :)

  18. 21

    Love the flats! So cute, especially paired with your chevron bag…love chevrons!

  19. 22

    I am glad you didn’t get caught in the storms in PA. I love the polka dot top from F21, I have never gone into their stores because I feel I am too old, but have some seen some really cute stuff!

  20. 23

    Thanks for hosting! Love your striped messenger bag – so adorable! ;)

  21. 24

    Oh no! I just realized I linked the same post this week as I did last week! I feel terrible because I know the rules- I just didn’t know I linked it until I went to add your link and saw it was there already. I really apologize. Feel free to delete it.

    Thanks doll,

    Wow, almost 300 linkys! That’s fun.

    I’m going on a girls’ weekend this weekend. It’s gonna be ALL yoga pants. Be prepared next week…. shows how many black comfy pants I really DO own!


  23. 26

    I love your boots! I have a similar pair of Steve Madden’s, though darker. I love the lighter color as it’s a bit more versatile. The infinity scarf is also precious, and I can’t decide which I prefer–the turquoise and gray or the gray and pink.

    On a super off-topic note, my sister (who is relatively new to photoshop) is in love with your header. Is there a name for that shape–I see it occasionally, but can’t really describe it in a google search?

  24. 27

    those shoes are yummy!

  25. 28

    Lovin’ that first outfit A TON. And your long hair – it looks so pretty!

  26. 29

    Wow. Lovely post and what a great idea for a style library :) Thanks for sharing – love your cute outfits and accessories, and it’s really good to browse other people’s too, through your post. Hacve a lovely week! :)
