what i wore wednesday

November 3rd | what i wore wednesday


since I’ve spent the last week at the hospital with david

i didn’t have much time (or inspiration) for what i wore wednesdays.

buuuut, i did find three pairs of fun shoes at the buffalo exchange in westwood.

so this is more of a what i WILL be wearing wednesday.

{shoes at least}

and i’m linking up with lindsey! yay!


the above green shoes are hardly practical but tons of fun

and at $15 i thought maybe i could justify them!



love these cow print ballet flats with the little buckle.

a little silly but so comfortable.

$14. seriously.

this is why i love the buffalo exchange.




and black, leather sandals. $9. sigh.

i know i’ll wear these all the time.

* * *

we are having a heat wave in california.

it was 90* today. crazy!!

i want to wear boots not sandals!!

what’s the weather like in your neck of the woods?

boots or sandals?

    I am hearting the Buffalo Exchange as well and I’m not even sure what it is! Your shoes are super cute! My mind still wants to say flip flops… but the thermometer is telling me otherwise… it was a balmy 28˚ this morning! YIKES…
    Also, I love your site, love your jewelry (it’s on my Christmas list!) and I love your family! I have a special needs child too and it’s always a pleasure to read about other peoples joys and struggles when raising a child with special needs! Thanks :)

    Boots boots and more boots! Fur lined if possible! Northeast has hit the winter feeling!

    Hey Lisa
    I think that the weather is flip flopping. Out here on the East Coast, we are finally having frost on the windows,and the weather man,said the “S” word. OOps there it is,”SNOW SHOWERS”!!!
    So what I wore wednesday is this, a lovely purple velvet shirt,my favorite rock star jeans,some clark clogs,and a checkered (purplely/greeny/creamey/)shawl to wrap it up LOL:)and a big yellow watch. How’s that.
    Happy Wednesday to you

    gosh, it’s definitely BOOT weather — it’s 46* right now in Minneapolis. But at least the sun is shining :]

  6. I love buffalo exchange too – shopped there all the time when I lived near one. I miss it!!

    The shoes are all super fun! it’s sandal weather here still!


  7. Stephanie says:

    Because you never know what the weather is going to be like in in South Carolina…I’m thinking of starting a new trend…boot on one foot, flip flop on the other! :)

  8. Lauriel says:

    Definitely boots here! With thick, warm socks inside! We have a buffalo exchange here that has awesome deals, I wonder if they are connected?

  9. Alas, I packed away my sandals on the September long weekend. I visit them from time to time and fantasize that it’s warm enough to wear them. Oh well, I’ll be pulling them out come June!! :)

  10. My toes much prefer to wear sandals, but our cold Michigan weather is forcing a switch-over to boots. I think my feet just got jealous of what’s on your feet. 😉

  11. Christy says:

    I always look forward to your WIWW posts. You always have it so together..I love the shoes in the first picture.

  12. Cathy says:

    we are starting to see frost in the car windows… no more sandals here in Montreal, Canada! I can still get away with my shoes… boots will come soon enough!

  13. Margie Brown says:

    Colorado has high of 60 and sunny but all I see if overcast clouds! I got my boots on today! All of your shoes are very cute! I linked up with Lindsey today also!

  14. Jennifer says:

    Definitely boots in my neck of the woods. I am in love with all these shoes :) Green with envy!

  15. sandals :( I am ready for boots too!! so glad David is doing well!

  16. Paige says:

    Brrrr…’s cold here on Long Island! As in, the fire is going and the frost is on the cars in the am. I’m sporting some fun knee high black boots with a kittn heel today and a great new beaded necklace made by my friend, Kathleen, who is also a fan of Lisa Leonard! LOVE the cow print mary jane shoes. Fantastic!

  17. tiffany day says:

    well, i am here in sunny Cal. so sandal weather but definately want it to be boots and scraf weather!!

    great photos & what great finds — i will be checking out buffalo exchange very soon! thanks for reminding me about a great store!!


  18. Margaret Scott says:

    Well, it’s chilly here in England so definitely boots! Please send us your heatwave – I’m not ready for the cold just yet!

  19. Nicole says:

    Boots! So many boots! Waterproof, fleece-lined boots! We’re forecasted to get snow sometime in the next two days. And today it’s just above freezing. Send us your heat, too! I’m not ready for winter! But, Michigan weather waits for no {wo}man.

  20. blogofjoan says:

    in nashville it has been lovely fall weather until the last couple days and now it is getting wet, misty and cool. that is the sign that winter is coming. i am wearing brown uggs, straight jeans from target and also a long brown and cream knitted vest from target over a white Talbot’s blouse. i like the cooler weather but not the mist. glad to hear david is doing well. i pray for him and think of him every day!! love from nashville!

  21. rhea says:

    today here in canada it’s absolutely beautiful, but not for sandals. unfortunately we have to wear socks with shoes. i am wearing my daughter’s (grade eight) little ballet shoes that are so fun. they are grey with pin stripes – a gap outlet special. i would love to wear sandals or flip flops! soon the snow will be coming and we will be wearing boots. i am also wearing this cute little old navy black sundress(girl’s size 12) over jeans with a eggplant sweater. not bad for a mom of six! lol!!!!

  22. Sandals, unfortunately! I live in Florida and it’s sandals 90 percent of the time.
    I’m ready for boots. It’s supposed to cool down this weekend so it will be boots for sure.

  23. lizibeth says:

    Ooooooo! Makes me miss CA even more …. we’re expecting a bit of snow this weekend, and I’m no where near one of their stores. Huge bummer. Those shoes are super super super cute!!!

  24. Paige says:

    Super cute shoes! It’s boot weather in Chicagoland. I can wait to move to California!

  25. Paige says:

    Oops…*can’t wait to move to California!

  26. Sara says:

    Oh my goodness… LOVE the cow print ballet flats. Seriously. I want them so bad I”m probably going to have to go to confession over it!

  27. maria says:

    Seriously so jealous of your shoe finds! We just stayed at a friends beach house (literally on the sand) at the end of Linden street in Carpinteria. That is the sweetest little town. My boys love the Rincon surf shop and I love the candy store & dinner at Sly’s. You have to tell us what brand the cow print flats are… cute!
    Glad everyone is doing well. Love & best wishes!

  28. Tina says:

    Definitely boots here in the Netherlands, fall has set in! but that’s fine, it’s November!
    I was in Ca last summer and friends(in St. Ana) told me it had been overcast for about 3 months…..
    they might catch up getting a sun tan now.
    Hi from Holland!

  29. I’m here in LA so definitely sandals are still at the front of my closet. LOVE your new shoes. I’m going to have to try Buffalo Exchange.

  30. Jennifer L. says:

    Upper 60s here and sunny, so I guess sandals…

  31. valerie says:

    WE’ve got awesome weather here! some days we do boots, some days even sandals! mostly it’s been a great Fall for flats!

  32. Jenny says:

    Wet and chilly here today!! Brrrrr! I just snuggled in bed with my 3 year old son until I could hear his breathing lengthen and deepen. He fell asleep tucked into my side. It was the perfect thing to do on a cold rainy afternoon.

    BTW, you SCORED with those shoes! Every pair! I want a Buffalo Exchange here!

  33. WOW! You are having a heat wave. What is the morning temp like?
    I’m in Nor Cal and we are mid 70’s this week. Mornings are a tad chilly.

  34. Jolene says:

    We got snow this week in Anchorage, Alaska. Most of it turned to slush in yesterday’s sunshine… but it is now ice, ’tis the season!

  35. Cait says:

    I love those shoes!! (Kimi- if you see this I’ll give you my first born if you send me shoes!!!!!) It’s wellie weather here. Lots of rainy and blustery days.

  36. Ruth Yoder says:

    Very cute shoes! I hardly wear anything but flats nowadays with a 6 month old. Those car seats are heavy!!

  37. Kristin says:

    Boots for sure…’s only 45 here in New York!!!

  38. All of those shoes are great! You are lucky, it seems you can wear styles like this all year ’round. I would love to join WIWW….we’ll see.

  40. Lea Culp says:

    Well, Lisa, I’d say you hit the “jackpot” for sure! I’m sure finding these deals added a bright spot to your very long days. Do hope David is doing well. Blessings and prayers my dear!

  41. Philippa says:

    Ooh Lisa I love your taste in shoes.. in fact, I WANT YOUR SHOES!! They are gorgeous. Here in NZ it is just becoming sandals weather. I have some really pretty ones my hubby bought me when he was in Malaysia recently. He took a cardboard cut-out of my foot (I have AA french classic feet, aaaggghhh) with him so he could get the right size. Luckily my size is the largest they have in Asia and of course, their feet are far more slim than typical New Zealand women’s feet so they fit me really well. Shame he won’t be travelling any more after November… yikes… Smiles…

  42. kristen says:

    Oh gosh…the cow print are AMAZING! Are the by facade? I have some wedges by them and they had the flats but I couldn’t justify two of the same print. For $15 I totally would have! Good finds!!

  43. Southern Gal says:

    Love your shoes. I wish my foot was smaller than 12 so I could find some cute shoes effortlessly.
    Boot weather here finally. It was in the 80’s and humid last week. We’ve finally hit the fall weather and I’m loving it.

  44. Katie says:

    I own 50 pairs of shoes so if I find a good deal I will buy them! : ) I love the blue shoes : )

  45. You’re such an inspiration! Thank God David is ok, I wish you all the best!
    Nice sandals, too :). But I love the little ballet flats! Wear them long and nice. XOXO

  46. Marcy says:

    Great shoes! Well, it was nice here in middle TN until today. Now its rainy and cold, but I guess Fall had to come eventually!

  47. Love all the shoes that you got and really…that’s all you paid. Wow!

  48. Miaja says:

    Lisa-You must tell us what brand of shoes these are!

  49. Nicole says:

    Boots here definitely. It’s not too bad in the afternoons, but in the mornings BRRR.

    I love those new shoes, especially the last ones, the leather sandals. Do they have them in a 9 1/2 or 10?

    Have a wonderful day Lisa!

    A shoe lover herself,

  50. Karen Lehmann says:

    Uggs one day, rain boots the next, and flip flops on the third. our weather can’t decide…

  51. wanda says:


    God has blessed you with Buffalo Exchange! I want one too! :(
    Love your new shoes!!

  52. Linda says:

    Definitely boot weather here….30 degrees last night!

  53. cute shoes! love the black wedges!! i love boot wearing weather but even then i wear my flip flops about 95% of the time :) gotta love living in so cal :)

  54. Casey says:

    love the ballet flats! so cute! we are starting to get to wear there will be snow soon so I’ve been wearing my Bogs for the rainy yucky coldness..

  55. Becky says:

    Sandals, flip flops, crocs – I am fed up of them all to be honest ! It’s still 32 degrees C here in Oman and I want it to cool down so much so that I can wear boots !!! I love all your shoes but am seriously envious of your cow print flats, they are beautiful.

  56. DeeAnna says:

    It is sandal wheather in Denver! What? 80 degrees this weekend. Is this some sort of sick joke? I can’t wait to put my boots and sweaters on!! Our prayers for sweet David and your family.

  57. DeeAnna says:

    Ok I know how to spell weather not wheather… lapse.

  58. Shannon says:

    I’m still wearing the open toed shoes here in Omaha! Still no snow here, so in my mind that means its okay to wear any shoe! :) Even if it was 29 degrees this morning! :) It’s sunny now!

    And I really need to know what this Buffalo Exchange place is! I want all those shoes you have! 😉

  59. kelly says:

  60. Oh gosh…the cow print are AMAZING! Keep up the great work!
