what i wore

wiww banner

welcome to what i wore!  if you’re new here, yay!  wiw is a fun place for outfit inspiration, but also a great place to find motivation.  it is amazing how putting 10 minutes into yourself in the morning can change the way you feel about your day.  on the days that i stay in my jammies (which are more often than i like to admit), i have a lazier attitude and less motivation to get things done.  but when i’m feeling good about how i look, i’m ready for errands, coffee dates, or just answering my door (in something other than said jammies).  if you’re ready to take the plunge, i encourage you to join us.  start taking daily pictures of whatever you’re wearing, whether its yoga pants or work clothes.  once you are keeping yourself accountable to the act of taking pictures, you will want to improve upon what you see in those pictures.  putting on jeans instead of yoga pants, or adding a scarf to your normal oxford and blazer rut… you will see a change!

also, if you are new here, this is not just a fashion blog!  i love to share my home and diy projects, too!  stay for awhile and take a look around!

what i wore at the pleated poppy

i’ve been leaning towards the uber casual lately, so adding a bit of accessories here and there helps me not feel like too much of a slob!

striped top – forever 21 \\  jeans – super old, but oh so comfy \\  converse – nordstrom rack \\  floral infinity scarf – my (now closed) shop

what i wore at the pleated poppy

since i knew with our fickle spring weather that the scarf wouldn’t last all day, i added a couple necklaces underneath.

monogram necklace – jennifer dahl designs \\ open circle necklace – lisa leonard designs

and then it was 80*… so the shorts had to come out.  these ones were bought on clearance at forever 21.  the waist is about 5 sizes too big, but somehow these still fit on the thighs… not sure what that says?  and the great shorts length debate continues for me.

this is one of my favorite outfits.  truly.  jeans and a white t-shirt are my favorite!  i decided to get crazy and add some new gold hoop earrings, and i felt way fancy in them, even with my ripped up jeans!

    I’ll say it again, I need you to go to forever 21 with me. I walk in and want to turn around and run as fast as I can out of that store. It’s overstimulating and disorganized. Well, disorganized in my eyes, I know they have a system. You find the best stuff!

    You even make casual clothes look so pretty! I love the top from Target and your converse.

    Is the teeny necklace the 16″ or 18″? I’m trying to decide the best length and I like where it hits you. Thanks!!
