what i wore wednesday at the pleated poppy

 i’ve had this tulle skirt from target for years – i bought it when i was first pregnant with either gracie or lily, so its been awhile!  but finding the right coordinates for a tulle skirt can be tricky!  i wore this for church and tried to balance out the fanciness of the skirt with some more casual pieces, like the striped cotton shirt and the denim jacket.

denim jacket – forever 21

striped top – forever 21

skirt – target

tights – target

wedges – payless

necklace – allora handmade

what i wore wednesday at the pleated poppy

 as soon as i get home from church, i am pretty ready to shed my nicer clothes and get into something super cozy.  we still had to run some errands, so my pj’s were going to have to wait!  i was able to just swap out a few pieces and make a different version of a fun outfit.

what i wore wednesday at the pleated poppy

 same top and necklace from church, but i added a warm sweater (it was freezing!), tall argyle socks, cuffed jeans and tennies.

i wasn’t sure how the mustard (with a slightly green tinge) would work with the coral necklace, but i actually love it!

    What a fun tulle skirt! Love the chambray shirt… such a classic and a great reminder that I need to pull mine out and wear it soon!

    I am in love with the black skirt from target. That outfit (for church and after church) are simply adorable! Love all your outfits as usual!

  3. 4

    I just love all your posts and cute outfits, but I just cannot bring myself to shop at Forever 21 any more now that I’ve read about their sweatshops. Not sure if you’ve heard but there’s a lot when you research and an End it movement to stop this kind of modern day slavery that is worth checking out. Have a great day, and thanks for challenging us to look cute! :) :)

    I’m loving your chunky sweaters and how you layer items!!!! I want those boots too,,,,

    I just wanted to say that I saw that mustard cardigan on here last week (? I think?) and headed right out to F21 to get one…and almost got lost in that SLO store! First just asked someone about where I would find a mustard cardigan and fortunately found it right away…then had to ask someone else directions to the dressing rooms…which were about 18 miles away! But thanks for posting where you get things…I’m loving the color and the coziness of this sweater for this brief time of chilly weather!

    I’m soooo in love with the tulle skirt. I had been looking for one FOREVER and finally found one in the girls section of Target. #desperatemeasures
