what i wore

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!


first off, 15 years ago today, this happened!

secondly, 12 years ago today, this little beauty came into the world!

    I love all your looks this week! Happy anniversary as well! You must tell me, are the white jeans from target good quality? I’m on the hunt for a pair but I’m so tired of see through white jeans! Why would anyone manufacture such a thing!?

      these pants are technically called jeans leggings (?), but i’m happy with the quality, especially for the price. i did wear nude underwear, but i didn’t notice them being see through at all. i hope that helps!

    That blingy pearly necklace is awesome!! It goes perfectly with that last outfit.

  22. 24

    15 down and 30+ to go. Don’t blink, it will fly by. Unfortunately, then you’ll be as old as us. Wait, no, we’ll be 97 & 99. We hope! Love, mom & dad.
