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!

sorry for being flakey the last couple weeks – i guess i really took the idea of a vacation to heart – i didn’t even know what day it was for 3 weeks!

1 of my new years resolutions: take better pictures.  so tired of these fuzzy ones, as i’m sure you are as well ;)

    I seriously always think your pix look great! haha….I have been trying out different locations, lenses, etc and just can’t seem to get it perfectly. I’ve been trying to convince my son to take my pix but we are still negotiating the salary, :)
