    I part with all my clothes fairly easily! You are looking adorable as usual Lisa! I just ordered your brave heart necklace yesterday as my newest accessory to beautify my outfits! Can’t wait to get it! So fun and thanks for the 20% off deal you sent out in your email! Perfect! Yay!

  2. Looking beautiful honey, fabulous hair. ax

    I love your pictures, because you just always look so happy and calm….something we all strive for. :)

    You are just the cutest thing! You inspired me to wear my jeans with a dress! I don’t know if I can pull it off as good as you do! You’ll have to check mine out! I have loved going thru your blog. I didn’t even know you had one until I checked out WIWW with Lindsey! Very inspiring! I’m so glad your son did so well with his surgery! I have been praying for him and you and your husband.

    absolutely love your wiww posts! i try to copy your style but i’m short and that makes wearing dresses with jeans very hard! oh well–i’ll keep trying! LOVE the cream/turquoise outfit.
    i have an old french club tee from high school (i can’t believe i’m writing this but next year will be 20 years since i graduated!!!!) that i cannot get rid of. i only wear it when i’m sick at home and thankfully that hasn’t been very often.

  6. I always look forward to your wiww posts. (Seriously, it’s always one of the first places I visit on Wednesday mornings.) You have such fabulous style!

  7. DeeAnna says:

    You really make me want to pair my jeans with a frilly dress and cardi!! I’m going to give it a try this week!

    I love your first and third outfit. The skirt is so pretty and feminine. The scarf in the third outfit looks great with the turquoise cardi and petal pusher. You always inspire me with fun, fresh outfits. You make it look so effortless. I always feel like I’m trying too hard when I wear something out of my style comfort zone. I also like how you mix clothes from various stores–Anthro + Target = Fab!!!

    I have some old college sweatshirts that I can’t part with, too!

    You looks just lovely – as always! I have been eyeing those Anthro boots – are they the Martingales? Are they pretty true to size? I wear a whopping size 10 (yes, I have boats for feet) and so I figure I would need a 41 … I have never bought shoes at Anthro and woudl be ordering on line, so it is good to know if the sizes are pretty accurate.

    I am so relieved to hear that David is healing so well and that you are all back to enjoying quality time together at home!

    Take care of you and of that sweet family of yours!

  10. Your blog makes me happy. Amen.

    i love your diy “love” sign! i’m going to try it with a red “joy” for christmas. you could do this for every season and holiday! great idea.

    i cannot part with my ocean city, nj sweatshirt. it’s old, stained and dorky. but that time in my life was a huge growth period and it just brings back such warm memories.

  12. Marcia says:

    You look so cute. What style you have! I’m a boot lover too :-)

  13. Paige says:

    Love the outfits. I got the tulle dress in blue.

  14. You look so pretty, Lisa! I especially like the first few pics of the skirt outfit. Way to go! Love the new LLD Christmas pcs.
    Yes, gearing up for Christmas without taking any attention away from Thanksgiving coming up first….hard to do, but we’re doing it.

    Thank you so much for posting this! I have so much trouble trying to put cute outfits together and to show how they go so great with your jewelry is just icing! I often wish I had someone to come to my house and show me how to wear the clothes and jewelry I have and you have done just that! I love all of your looks!

  17. Kristi says:

    You are too cute! Love the scarf with the posie pin, super cute! I have a sweatshirt my hubby gave me in college (about 16-17 yrs old) that I will never throw away. It is so ratty, but I love it and still wear it!

    I enjoy seeing your outfits. For the piece of clothing I won’t part with, I have a red fleece shirt that I’ve had for almost 15 years. It isn’t suitable for public viewing so it never leaves the house but it’s just so snuggly.

  20. Steph Connor says:

    Love What I Wore Wednesday…you always inspire me to try something new! I will definitely be layering my family tree necklace (my absolute fave) with pearls — what a fun combo:) Now, will you share some tips for getting such beautiful curls with another curly-haired mama? Please?

  21. Vicki says:

    Ugh! you look so freakin cute! the day i do wiww…will be ground breaking…cause i LIVE in pj’s! but you inspire me a smidge every weds! ps…my son and i read your sisters story about her twin girls….and seriously she could make that into a childrens book…we had such a good time reading and disscussing god’s plan and his amazing love!

  22. Amber says:

  24. I am currently weearing my avorite pink terry cloth sweats I’ve had for 7, almost 8, years. I think I’ll be buried in them. I’m so very glad David is doing well. God is good!

  25. monica says:

    i really like that green chair you were sitting on. i need that for my kitchen table, which has all mismatched chairs!

  26. sarita says:

    You look amazing!!! :o) I would really like some style tips! Maybe next time you are in Fres??
    Soooo GLAD that David is home and doing well. Take care Leonard family.

  29. Lea Culp says:

    You are just adorable and especially in outfit #3, love the aqua color on you. I hear that Frye boots are the “be all, do all” of boots. Pioneer Woman is a huge advocate of them. I think I just may have to have a pair. :o)

    Blessings to you and your sweet family!

  30. connie says:

    I absolutely love your style and your attitude. Even through struggles you seem to just be the light and inspiration to all those around you.

  31. Lisa says:

    you and your outfits are adorable! thanks for sharing with us!

  32. Becky K says:

    Your third outfit is my fave. You look great in aqua! I love my 8 year old Ugg boots (so ugly now but So comfy)! I won’t give them up until I get a new pair…which may be never.

  33. Miaja says:

    That’s it! The next time I shop I will (virtually) take you with me! I need everything you wear! So cute!

  34. Ramona Gordy says:

    Here it is ,Tuesday and I am catching up with with you. I love what you wore last Wed. Where do you find those cute tops. They seem to be the perfect length to wear over jeans or tights and boots. Love,maybe you could design a limited edition of fashions to wear with your jewelry. Marvelous.

  35. I know…it seems I’m always late here but I just had to answer your ?…what piece of clothing can’t I part with??? Just yesterday this came to mind when I put on ‘my’ college sweatshirt. I got it as a gift in HS and have had it for 30+ years. It’s so wonderfully comfortable!
