what i wore

wiww banner

 happy wednesday, friends!  “what i wore” is a place where i share my attempts at getting out of yoga pants and into real clothes.  as a stay-at-home/work-at-home mom, just getting dressed can be a feat of its own some days.  since i started what i wore a few years ago, i have not only drastically stepped up my game in the wardrobe department, but i feel better for doing it.  if you are looking to find some accountability to get dressed each day, or just for some outfit ideas, join up with us and check out all the links below!

i will add links to the items i wear when i have them.  if there’s not a link, its because the item is too old!

what i wore at the pleated poppy

 boden let me choose a couple items from their site recently – wow, that was hard!  i have been a fan of boden for years – the classic style and quality craftsmanship with a side of sass ;)

 i chose this polka dot top, and love it!  the fit is so perfectly and is very comfy.

 see?  beautiful warm weather!  my body and closet are so confused right now!

 this is the second top i chose from boden, and again, it has a perfect fit!  it feels like it was tailored just for me, with perfectly placed darts and even a zippered back.  the eyelet placement is so pretty, too!  take note, though:   i ordered a size small.  if you are busty at all, i’d say maybe order a size bigger.  be sure to refer to their size charts to get the right size.

 i love that the tops are both flattering – body skimming but not fitted tight.  i paired both tops with ankle length skinny jeans and flats – super easy outfits with a punch of style!!
