Welcome back for another week of WIWW with The Pleated Poppy! If you're looking for some new inspiration with your outfits, check out everyone who links up!

I can't speak for the weather in other parts of the US, but Texas is crazy. Three weeks ago we had 4 snow days and last week it was 80 every day. While I'm loving the warm weather, it makes it a little hard to know what to wear!! I mean, it's still February and I don't feel like I've gotten enough wear out of my winter pieces, so my outfits are currently a hodge podge of trying to keep winter alive for a few more weeks while already looking ahead to spring!

Wednesday- Work



Dress - Target
Cardigan- Target

{we had a special visit day on campus which kept us from our normal causal friday. slightly disappointing, but I love this shirt and sweater so it worked out! Also, I know I showcased this last week, but I only wore it for a few hours so I just *had* to re-wear it to work!}
