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!

some sundays i like to get a little extra dressy for church because i really have no other reason to dress up, and some sundays i just do a minor upgrade.  but this outfit felt dressy to me, but was so casual feeling – crazy comfortable!  jeans and a t-shirt get a boost with easy wedges and a little rhinestones – so simple.

casual, comfy, classic… with just a little edge.  that is what i love most!  i love this old sweater from old navy but its cut is a little tricky to style.  because its cropped, i paired it with a loose fitting, longer t-shirt and skinny jeans to balance the proportions.  a mostly neutral outfit with a little splash of color in the accessories.

this cardigan is kind of like a socially acceptable robe.  i want to wear it all the time.  actually, i do wear it pretty often, a lot like a robe!

i love to window shop target.com.  its far less dangerous than actually shopping at target!  on a recent window shopping excursion, i spotted these fun shoes that i thought you might enjoy as well!
