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!

do you know how much i love these earrings from nickel & suede?  i wear them several days a week.  they are so lightweight and comfortable.  these ones are especially fun because they have a subtle shimmer to them, but are still pretty neutral.

so, thoughts on off-the-shoulder shirts?  i feel a little old for them, but think they are adorable.  but every time i lifted my arms, the shoulder part would slip up a bit, so i felt like i was adjusting the sleeves a lot, which was slightly annoying.  and, this particular top is completely see through so i had to wear a tank underneath.  also, its a little cropped when i move much at all, and i definitely know i’m too old for that!  i’m not sure how i feel about the straps showing.  if they were a little thicker, maybe they’d look intentional, like they were part of the shirt?  most of the day i ended up tucking the straps down by the sleeves so i didn’t get a tan line.

    I think it’s a really pretty top and looks great on you! The straps look fine. I also love how the hat and shorts look with it. Personally, I love the off the shoulder tops but hate cold shoulder tops. I think they’re a fad that will die out by next year. A split sleeve looks much more flattering. I’ve bought a couple of off the shoulder tops for my holiday in a couple of weeks

        Make that 3 no’s on cold shoulder tops. And I’m a pinch bothered they make them in the girls section, no bueno. I thought your top was made that way, well played.

    Hi Lindsey, what size are your earrings? It’s hard to tell on their website which are which in the photos. Thanks!

    I know what you mean about elasticated OTS tops constantly slipping. The top does look lovely though, especially with the denim shorts and hat. I thought the straps were part of the top. I love your earrings.
