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!

    Hi there! Thanks for hosting. I’m a brand new style blogger, 3 weeks in and hopelessly lost on all the IT elements of blogging, of which there seem to be many! I’m just posting to apologize but I tried to add my link and couldn’t figure out where or how the link back happens and I don’t think I did that right. So, please forgive me and I’m working on figuring it out – with any luck I’ll be successful by tonight. In the meantime, great casual look with shorts and happy blogging everyone!

    I love your layered shorts outfit and can’t wait until it’s warm enough here in Oslo to wear shorts again. Right now we have winter v 2.0 and though the fresh snow looks rather beautiful and lights up my surroundings, I’m a warm weather kinda girl who want to wear shorts with or without tights!
