what i wore

wiww banner

happy wednesday!  every wednesday i share pictures of my weekly outfits here and call it “what i wore wednesday”.  i started this to motivate myself to get dressed everyday and it has done the same for many other women who link up with me.  if you need a little motivation to get out of yoga pants, or just want to kick your style up a notch, join us next week!

what i wore at the pleated poppy

wore this for our backyard bbq last week.  comfy and casual but still a bit of style.

chambray shirt – forever 21

navy tank – forever 21

dark coral skirt – deborah and co.


necklace – cookie + curly


an easy church outfit for weather that couldn’t decide what it was going to do.

top – forever 21

jeans – forever 21

flats – target


  ever+mi.crush sent me this adorable shirt.  at first i wasn’t sure of my choice with the bright red, but i decided it was actually really fun.  the cut is very forgiving if you happen to, say, eat a big burrito and it shows ;)

top – ever.mi.crush

jeans – forever 21

converse – nordstrom rack


 the top has a few cute details, like elastic cuffs,strings to tie in a bow in front, and this cute little v cut out in back!


 necklace – kristin noel designs

    These outfits make me want to drop the yoga pants. But alas, my closet is filled with t shirts and… yoga pants?

    Maybe it’s time to get out this rut! But where to even begin?

    Hi Lindsey
    I follow your blog and look forward every week to your W.I.W. posts. I live in a completely different climate (NH), have a completely different body type (curvy), your style is way more colorful than mine and don’t have a Forever 21 store anywhere near me, yet I find myself saying “Tomorrow’s Wednesday” or however many days as I mentally calculate the days til Wednesday’s WIW post. This all seems very strange to me but in a way it’s sort of a time keeper for my week.
    I always loved paper dolls as a kid and in some way I think maybe your posts have a bit of that quality to me as I enjoy seeing the different combinations you come up with in your wardrobe.

    And just so I don’t sound like a stalker, I have purchased a ruffled scarf and an iPad case from your shop.

    Love the details on the red polka dot shirt! I have a similar one from ModCloth that I just love.
