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!


 we had a fundraiser for our school, not super fancy but still nice.  after setting up for it all day, i put on my most comfortable heels.

sweater – forever 21 //  pants – target //  wedges – payless //  necklace – local boutique


 homeschool with the kids, then errands & swim practice… then date night (see next outfit).

dress – golden tote //  chambray shirt – forever 21 //  converse – off broadway shoes //  earrings – nickel & suede


 date night at a friends’ restaurant for a special dinner.  i wanted to get extra dressy because i rarely have the chance.  i got this romper for only $22!  it was definitely a risky outfit for me and pushing the limit in the length, but i think the opaque tights help with the risqué factor.  and at the price, even if i only wore it once it was worth it.

romper – forever 21 //  tights – target //  heels – target //  belt – target //  earrings & necklace – lisa leonard designs


sunday church and lunch out

dress – thrifted //  cardigan – old navy //  boots – steve madden // necklace – lisa leonard designs


kids at school, work at fred & betty’s

shirt – be still clothing company // camouflage pants – target //  flats – target //  bracelet – lisa leonard designs //  earrings – nickel & suede

and for full disclosure, yesterday i wore the shirt above for the second day in a row, after sleeping in it.  i wore super saggy sweats and my hair piled on top of my head.  no pic, just being honest.  not every day earns the privilege of my time and energy to get dressed ;)

      thanks! it took a few tries to get the shirt tied in the right place – too high looked funny, too low was frumpy… but it sure was comfy!

    You make it so hard to pick a favorite but if forced to chose I’d go with the date night outfit.

    I have been searching for a pair of camo pants all month! I purchased a pair at Loft and they were so stiff that I sent them back. I will try to check out Target for a softer pair(: Susan
