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!

what i wore at the pleated poppy

this is the only outfit i have to share this week, and about 30 minutes after i put it on, i took it right off and threw on cozy clothes.  why? #momlife.  just as i was getting myself ready and the kids to take them to school, my youngest informed me that his fever was back.  so no school for him, no work for me.  but for the 30 minutes i had this on, i really liked it!

top – local boutique {similar – search “silas top olive” // flare jeans – golden tote {similar – love these!} //  t-strap clogs – old navy //  leather tassel necklace – made by me //  suede earrings – nickel & suede //  belt – target

story about the belt: i have been looking for a light leather belt, but can never find one in a medium. xs and xl all day long, but never medium.  so i bought an xl (or was it xxl?) and took it home, cut off most of the length with sharp scissors, and got out my leather punch from back in the days when i had my shop, and punched myself some new holes!  i also just added more holes to sandal straps for my daughter, so that tool has come in handy!

    Ha-ha! That’s so funny about the belt. That is so true too! Actually I would say it’s true about anything. The Size Medium are always the first to go in everything!
