    I have that same flowered dress too! I loveit! You are just too cute for words!

  2. Paige says:

    I do not think my target and your target ship from the same warehouse! :) You are too cute. I look forward to seeing what you have on each week!


  3. Both those flowery dresses are wonderful, you look lovely. ax

    I love, love, love my dewdrops necklace – definitely my go to jewellery, with my kids’ names on one side and my husband’s and mine on the other. And, of course, my wedding ring – a Claddagh. The hands mean friendship, the heart means love and the crown means loyalty. I’m not a big jewellery wearer, but I love stuff that means something.

  5. Faith says:

    My new engagement ring:) hehe…

  6. Okay — I’m doubly excited because I can finally say that I match Lisa Leonard on What I Wore Wednesday!! 😉 My Brave Love necklace arrived last week and I love it so much! Thanks, Lisa! It’s definitely my “go to” piece of jewelry! Now . . . if I could just look as cute as you everywhere else!

  7. Debbie says:

    It’s the tiny squares necklace and wedding ring for me! Both pieces are a constant reminder of what it important and goes with everything! I never take them off!

  8. Cait says:

    I’ve been wearing my friendship necklace that Kimiko brought when she came to visit her host family. I love it, and have only taken it off when I was in the hospital (sorry, Kimi!!)

  9. Stephie says:

    Love your outfits as usual, Lisa! I have many of the same Target dresses that you have and you give me so many new ideas how to wear them!
    Last Christmas my girls gave me the prettiest little sterling Tiffany key necklace. They were so excited to give it to me that it just makes my heart swell thinking about it. I wear it every single day on a 30″ chain so that I can see it constantly.

  10. Shaiya says:

    My go-to jewelry is my “beautiful necklace” I bought from you this past summer. I wear it every. single. day! I love it!!! Can’t wait to order more from you.

    BTW I am writing a review of LLD and my necklace that will be posted on my blog later this week. 😉

  11. Dania says:

    Ahhh….I always love all your outfits. So stylish and simple. You’re my icon :-)

  12. tammy says:

    so cute. i love that scarf in the first picture. my go-to jewelry lately is pearls.

  13. Cassie says:

    My go-to jewelry is my wedding ring, engagement ring, my hoop earrings and finally my Marked with Love necklace. I can’t leave without that necklace on. I need to keep my sweet angels with me at all time!

  14. Cindy in PA says:

    Funny you should ask…”by grace alone” necklace of yours through DaySpring. Love it and the Bible verse it’s from.

  15. currently wearing something i made with chain and some typewriter keys and a few doo dads…you’re right, we do get hung up on one thing…always the wedding band and engagement ring though! i love your what i wore wednesdays and love your style…i always hesitate to wear a dress or tunic with skinny jeans as i am only 5’5″ and the other side of 50….are you tall? ’cause it looks great on you….opinion?

  16. Amanda says:

    I LOVE your style! So much!

    I always wear a silver Claddagh ring my mom gave me on my 19th birthday, two years ago. And I always wear a pair of earrings, different every day.

    Soon I will be wearing my new “T Ring,” my grad ring! I’m graduating this year! In May! Can’t believe it!

  17. My beautiful ‘sparkle’ LLD necklace is my go to jewelry right now. Also, my ‘MaMa’ necklace. My husband had the ‘sparkle’ necklace customized. He put our names on it, because he said that
    ‘our love sparkles!’ It is soooo very special to me. Thank you, Lisa.

  18. Kelly says:

    I’ve never written on a blog before or even followed a blog, but you’re jewelry, photos, family and words have inspired me. I first saw your jewelry on a beautiful woman one day and asked her right away about it. I love the handmade touch, the beautiful detail and wearing something meaningful so close to me. The first blog entry I read was about David and his open heart surgery. Your words touched me so much because it was a couple of days after my sister had her baby girl who has Downs Syndrome and now awaits open heart surgery. I keep David in my thoughts now along with my new niece, Cecelia. Shortly after Cecelia was born, I ordered the “beautiful” necklace for my sister Colleen with a C for Cecelia and the wallet for her fiance. You have a beautiful family, such a blessing. As I looked at your photos yesterday of when you were waiting for your tow truck, it brought me back to when I lived in California….oh the views! I now live in Columbus, Ohio and I just dream of those beach views…so beautiful! Have a wonderful day and thank you for sharing with us…Kelly

    I have some 1 1/2 inch silver hoop earrings, I call them my “girlfrind” hoops. I wear them every day and change out on Sundays. I have a silver necklace that is 3 chains interlocking through silver circles of various sizes. I have been wearing a big yellow watch, partly because its cute and partley because I can see it LOL:)

  20. Lan says:

    Love the peach scarf and the flowered dress…I went to Target searching for your other tops from last week’s what you wore Wednesday and was sad I couldn’t find anything.

  21. Becky K says:

    Love the peach scarf! My go to necklace is my Be Still from YOU! If only I could follow its life-giving words more often. :)
    Another LLD piece is going on my Chirstmas list but I just can’t decide what to ask for. I want everything! H
    Happy Wednesday!

  22. My Soar Necklace from R house. It reminds me to soar above the petty things in life and give thanks to Him.

  23. Tiffany Day says:

    adorable as always!

    my go to lately is my Tiffany & Co bracelet and my pearl drop earnings from lld!!


  24. Carol says:

    Lately it is my “hope” and “heartstrings” necklaces and on date night my aqua stones necklace- of course, my amethyst celtic triad ring and my wedding ring of 21 years. I too, wish I could look as cute as you in tunics and skinny jeans. David is looking well and adorable. xoxo

  25. Robbin says:

    My memorial bracelet in ‘memory of the Pentagon’ from 9-11 is almost always on my wrist, whether I’m dressed up or in sweats. My humpback whale ring and my birthstone rings are the ones I wear the most. I change it up once in awhile. I had to cut off my wedding ring years ago because I lost the diamond and couldn’t get the ring off. Then Dan got me another ring on our 25th anniversary. Sadly, I gained too much weight. Now I’m losing weight, per doctor’s orders, so soon I will be wearing it again. CAN’T WAIT!!! And I have two specially made Lisa Leonard jewelry that I wear a lot, one she built around two charms and my ‘Mizpah’ necklace that my best friend has also–gave to her when I moved. “The Lord watch between you and me while we are absent one from another.” So a few pieces.

  26. Michele says:

    I really like the way you tied the scarf in the first photo. It looks so pretty. I usually only buy tea at World Market so I’ll have to look around a little more next time I’m in there. I like your skinny jeans. I bought a pair this weekend at Target. I swore I’d never wear them, and now I LOVE them. I guess I’ll have to eat my words. One more thing, your Anthro boots are just perfect.

  27. Sandi says:

    Hi Lisa,
    I am also wearing my Brave necklace that I purchased from you and always get so many compliments on it… I’m letting Washington State know all about you!

    Counting down my days until I arrive at the Central Coast (Morro Bay)……hope to get to meet you and check out your items in person……


  28. my l.l. necklace with my kids names. BUT i just got the l.l. red necklace as a gift (from kristen cheney). i have to go through all your wiww to get ideas on what to wear it with.

    love the new blog look.

  29. Kathleen says:

    I look forward to your WIWW posts each week – they’re great!

    My go-to pieces are your beautiful necklace with the aqua bead from the from up here necklace. So simple and pretty. I also wear my wedding set daily and usually aqua stone earrings or pearls.

  30. Kathleen says:

    annnnnnddddd….holy blog and website redesign!!!! They look awesome and totally you.

  31. Jean says:

    Loving my “beautiful” necklace I bought here last month.

  32. Renae says:

    First of all… I love the new look of your blog!!

    I’m gonna have to make a trip to The World Market (I love that place) and get that beautiful scarf.

    I’m a little jealous that you’re still in flip flops. I wish I was.

    Everyday I’ve been wearing my little leaf ring that has an imprint inside that say ‘live simple’ and my LLD ‘Oliver’ dewdrop necklace and my pearl studs :0)

  33. Nicole says:

    um, hey new design! i love it!

    i love all your cutie cute little outfits. and, david is lookin sharp man! clearly bouncing back pretty well- God is good!

    my current go to jewelry consists of: a necklace with a sand dollar stamped on the front and “be the change you wish to see in the world” on the back, a bunch of pearl, diamond and silver earrings (i’ve got seven piercings to fill) and my double silver ring. pretty average, but i love them a lot!

  34. liane says:

  39. Margie Brown says:

  40. ann in indy says:

    I wear my “be still” and “hugs & kisses” and my wedding ring. I get so many compliments on my necklaces. I also wear my husbands big watch…that way I can see the time without my glasses.

    By the way, the new blog design looks great!

  41. You are always adorable! Yes, I love dresses and boots too, but I need a few more boots. :) My brown ones just cracked when I went to Chicago…they didn’t like the cold…hahah

  44. Margaret Scott says:

    I really like your new look blog!!

  45. april says:

    my dad gave my mother a charm bracelet 35 years ago when they were teenagers. One of hte charms was a magnifier locket the size of a dime. inside he wrote I Love(but he put a heart) U. in red ink. It has now turned to hot pink ink and I LOVE IT. I was afraid for years to wear it so I took it and had a custom jeweler fix it to where it wouldn’t open and then he put it on a 36 in chain and I wear it like a very long necklace. I wear it almost every day. Layered with stuff or just alone. I wear alot of dresses and boots so it looks so cute…..

  46. Lori Taylor says:

    Love the new layout.

  47. I love how you partner dresses with pants. I think my legs are too short for that. I just look awkward and weird, plus it makes me look pregant.

    My favorite go-to jewelry are my Lisa Leonard necklaces of course. I get so many compliments on them.

    I love the re-design! It is fabulous!

  48. Suzanne says:

    My family necklace – I’m a single mom so i added a disc with my name and my kids’ names. I love it! I gave it to myself for my 40th birthday!

  49. Kristen says:
