Inspiration & What I Wore

I am one of those who seeks out inspiration and when I find it, I almost immediately ask myself "how can I replicate this?" So a few months ago, during one of my daily Google Reader visits, I was somehow directed to The Pleated Poppy and it was like I was thrown into inspiration overload {in a good way}!

Initially I was in awe of Lindsey because she is a very talented sewer, which shows throughout her shop, where I wanted to purchase everything immediately since I can't imagine making such cuteness myself! But after reading through past posts on The Pleated Poppy, I was finding inspiration from Lindsey's weekly post featuring what she wore last week, which I loved instantly because she showed it all - the good, the bad, & the real life.

All this to say, I am going to try Lindsey's approach with the way I post about my oufits now because I do enjoy sharing what I wear {more for myself to see what I can come up with using the basics from my own closet} and I haven't shared many as of late. My hope is that I will begin to accept the outfits I put together, rather than stressing over what others think and ultimately being uncomfortable.

Here are my outfits from the last week:

Top: Anthropologie
Shorts: Gap Outlet
Sandals: Target

  1. Meaghan,

    You always look great in the outfits you put together. Seriously, you look every bit as "put together" as the pics I see in magazines.
    Thanks for continuing to share your OOTDs!
