welcome to “what i wore” at the pleated poppy!  share with me your fashion posts and we can inspire each other!  i started this originally as motivation to get out of my daily uniform of jammies or sweats, but now i am encouraged and held accountable to put a few extra minutes aside for myself and try new things.  i’d love for you to join me!

what i wore at the pleated poppy

i made this top a few years ago with my friend, nicole.  we made matching tops – twinsies!  except we’re not in elementary school and i’d die if we both wore them together!  actually, i wear this top so rarely but love the fabric oh-so-much, that i decided i am going to make this top into my next pillow for our bed – yay!

top – made by me

cardi – banana republic

jeans – forever 21

flats – target

bracelets – world market

what i wore at the pleated poppy

i went into forever 21 last week for a belt and came out with a belt.  and 2 tops.  oops!  i am loving this top!  actually, loving it so much that i wore it 2 days in a row.  that has become my secret summer sanity keeper – not having to think too much in the morning!

top – forever 21

jeans – about to fall apart, but so cozy

shoes – what shoes?  its summer!

this was a 2-day outfit, too.  the nice thing about being out of the toddler stage is that i rarely have food and boogers wiped on my clothes anymore!

v-neck shirt – forever 21

jeans – forever 21

converse – new!  nordstrom rack {yay for gift cards!}

what i wore at the pleated poppy

this was at the end of a long day of working outside, so i threw this on to walk down the street to pepe’s (our fave mexican restaurant).  our days have been pretty nice here, but the evening gets a good chill to it.  and i’m a wimp.

converse – nordstrom rack

    Your handmade top is so adorable! And I love the last outfit…the turquoise necklace looks really cute with the color of your top. Linking up! :)

    Such a shame you don’t wear that handmade top more often. I love it. I guess a new pillow will see more light of day than being tucked away in your closet : )

    I rarely wear shorts, too. I get cold easily as well and jeans are usually just more comfortable. Love that cardi in the last outfit!

    Love the fabric on that top. It really makes a statement. It’ll be a great pillow. Better to make use of it that way than to tuck it in a closet and forget it. Thanks so much for the link up once again!

      its from anna maria horner, i think the collection was called drawing room? but its definitely a few years old, or more!

    what style are the gap jeans with the striped cardigan from Target. Did you cut them yourself to make them ravel?

    • 27

      hi tanya!

      the jeans are gap 1969 always skinny, but they are pretty old so i doubt if they even sell them anymore! they were crazy long so i chopped them myself.

    Hey, The outfit with the cardigan from Target, the top from your mom…. (grey) do you know the brand or where she got it? I would love to find it or something similar?

    Thank you!

    I so wish I had that top that you made, and then later planning on turning it into a pillow for your bed. I absolutely love the colors, and I have a similar color cardigan. Thanks for sharing.
