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!

date night is the perfect excuse to dress up a little.  but when i get dressed, the first thing i consider is comfort and temperature.  i knew i needed to dress a little warmer because we were headed to a restaurant on the beach (just in time for the sunset!).  i had just received this adorable top from Woodbury Lane and i am not one to let something new sit long before i try it out.  yes, a shirt and jeans isn’t the fanciest look for a date night, but i also live in a pretty casual town.  but the wedges “elevate” the outfit a bit (pun fully intended).

shirt – woodbury lane //  jeans – forever 21 //  wedges – american eagle {similar here & here}

again with the shirt!  i tend to wear new items as many ways as i can when i first get my hands on it.  this top is also the perfect length for wearing with leggings – covering up all the downstairs goods – nobody needs all the information leggings give ;)

shirt – woodbury lane // jeans – target {similar} //  sandals – old navy //  necklace – 31 bits //  earrings – lisa leonard designs

woodbury lane is sharing a discount for all of you!  15% off with “CHENEY15″ – yay!

oh the woes of finding a long enough dress… this one is borderline, but again: comfort.  the loose fitting shape is so forgiving and i love the navy color!

dress – thrifted // cardigan – old navy //  sandals – glittered by me //  necklace & earrings – lisa leonard designs

yes, its getting warmer and warmer here, but i just had to grab this sweater when i saw it!  its basically perfect: slightly boxy without being too baggy, a loose neck, but not a draping cowl, slight dolman sleeves.  and grey, because grey.

sweater – forever 21 //  jeans – forever 21 //  boots – zappos
