The Pleated Poppy

Because Shanna Said So



Here we are back to Wednesday… the middle of the week… the it’s really only Wednesday?, day.  And I admit I’ve been slacking… not in dressing but taking pictures. My mirror broke (in the move) so I’ve been using the Biddy Girls, and it’s all the way downstairs and I think to myself,  “self run downstairs and get your pictures before you forget…” well, then I don’t listen and I forget. I really wish I’d of gotten one yesterday’s outfit, I really like it, but nope sidetracked! Umm, sewing! But I’ll show ya’ll what I do got.. and can you believe I have a bunch of blazers, and totally haven’t worn any of them, until today that is! (I’m shaking my head ) I will definitely be pulling them out and incorporating them into the light of day!

Have a good rest of the week, See ya back here Friday!!



I can say the Mr. is loving WIWW, Which is always a plus. I mostly like it, it gets a bit hard to come up with different looks… (he’s the clothes horse) but I feel better dressed, I get more done and if I have to run out for something or someone (more likely) It is nice to be put together and that I care. So thanks Lindsay! for giving me the motivation to get outta my yoga pants and hoodies!

Because Shanna Said So


Ok, So I’ve been slacking. Hoodies… Tees…. Jeans and Tennis Shoes.  Borning and fairly sloppy (but warm). So once again I turned to “The Pleated Poppy Blog” for some accountability. It really doesn’t take any longer to put myself together than it does to throw on a hoodie. My men will just have to wait! Now… Now I just need shoes! Yes, shoes, I have a whole closet of killer heels that I love, that I feel like an idiot in chasing 3 young boys around in. So I am now on a mission, flats and mini wedges, ummm Shopping!! Yeah!! So here’s what I wore this week…

Cardigan, Turtle neck, and Jeans

Alrighty then….

Alrighty then it’s Tuesday… A cloudy, cool, cold Tuesday. And I’m feeling,( Gerrrr), semi grouchy. I tried to ride off my bad mood at the gym in RPM class this morning, and just wound up….. wiped,  (thanks Ms. S for handing me my butt.) but that’s what I get for skipping the gym for the last couple of weeks. (I don’t recommend it.) But I’m hoping to get back in the swing of things. (fingers crossed) So home to not clean house…. but I did get the laundry started, so that was a plus. What I spent most of the day doing was putting together a fun (I think) little kit for a fellow blogger….. but that’s all I’m gonna say about that, other than I’ll get in the mail tomorrow!! But doing that really helped my mood!! (Yeah!)

Since the semi grouchy mood was impairing my ability to put myself together this morning….. Pinterest I went for some inspiration ….


Like I said just inspiration…. Think I got the “feel” of the pin. If not anything else!!

Here’s hoping for a better Wensday!

WIWW on Thursday

Oops, OK, so I missed Wednesday… I have no idea where it went I know it was here.. because it’s now Thursday. I guess I was caught up in little boy randomness (no line so I guess it’s already a word) Now for the catch up…

Jean short (Old Navy)
White Tee… The Mr’s!! hehehehe
I love this hair!! Find it here!!

I’ll add my polk-a-dot chucks for MMA class tonight, but other than that…. Tada…. Craft room approved attire, where I’ll be working on Eazy E’s room stuff!! I can’t wait to start putting it all together.

What a way to Link up…. but whatever works today!!  Smile, It’s makes ’em wonder what you’re up to!


Wednesdays are becoming fun again, I started thinking about what I was gonna wear today, yesterday! Hahaha, I have to say and get it outta the way, Thanks to Lindsey for inspiring me to just get dressed!! However today is easy peasy day… all the chores are done… lawn mowed …. laundry done so as for me… you’ll find me me in my craft room!! (Can I hear a yippee!), I have no idea what I’m gonna make, maybe finish the little stool, start on Nicky baby’s curtains, finish my curtains or make a new bag. It’s enough that I get the whole day…(while running rough shod on the Boyz)

Tank top… Kohl’s
Crops JCPenney

I love this outfit… it’s cool, comfortable and I think mint and white are crisp and fresh looking! Along with Kate’s Hair Tutorial….(of which I can’t seem to get a decent picture of) but it worked!! And my hair is not as long at Kate’s…. (She is a Genius!!)

And the return of WIWW

Alright it’s getting pretty sloppy around here… shorts and tanks… or shorts and tees, (and not a cute tee…but one of the Mr.’s …shhhh) Hair in a ponytail….*sigh. The way to fix that, you might or might not ask, the reinstatement of What I Wore Wednesdays, with the link up to Lindsey over at The Pleated Poppy, (ever looked at her store, cute, cute cute!!) I do enjoyed dressing but somehow taking the time to do so slips further and further down the list. So for at least one day, but more like two, (going out Fridays) I’ll make the the time.. and close the door, if I can’t hear them…. how much trouble can the be getting into. *wink wink

So on to the show….

Shirt and crops from Old Navy
I love this shirt… it cool and breezy. Perfect for VA summers 

I know it looks a hot mess… but half up in a falling braid.
Kate over at the Small Things blog does a way better job on hers’ but I’m trying!

Welcome to South Central Texas…. where the weather will baffle you and otherwise not corporate….I am so ready for fall clothes!! I love my cardigans, sweaters and low and behold scarves!! (who knew) So while it is November in the rest of the country…. It’s later summer here. With a forecasted high of 79-81 or so…. It’s hard to decide just what to wear, I don’t feel right in shorts, (it is November) but by afternoon, it’s HOTTTT…… So I am are going to split the difference. (Say Hi to Ming…. My parents little dog!) So now I feel fall-ish and hopefully won’t roast this afternoon!!
