what i wore wednesday

June 22nd | what i wore wednesday

it’s wednesday and i’m linking up with lindsey for some fashion inspiration!

i got this denim top from chicos. i never shop chicos but i couldn’t find a denim top anywhere and i found this one online. it’s lightweight and super comfy. i know it’s going to be a summer favorite. skirt, t-shirt, both forever 21. flip flops, old navy

i wore it again, tucked in with a floral skirt {local boutique}. belt, banana republic. flip flops, old navy. molded heart bracelet, sun droplet necklace, both from my shop.

today’s very important question… if you are going to spend an afternoon relaxing at the beach or on a sipping iced tea on a lounge chair, what do you want to have for reading material?

  4. Love your outfits! I was actually so inspired by your cute hair that I got mine cut this week. Today is the first time I’m participating in WIWW, but it’s so much fun. That floral skirt is beautiful.

    barbara delinsky is my new favorite – a light read (perfect for the beach) but also makes you think a little.

    love the floral print skirt!

  11. Pam says:

    Cute! I’m inspired to go find a good wide belt.

  12. Paige says:

    Love the denim top – so classic. My reading material is O, The Oprah magazine or Real Simple magazine.

  13. Linda Z says:

    You are the skirt queen, Lisa! :) And I really like the color on the denim top… it’s perfect! :)

    Chick lit – I love any book with a funny, strong female lead!

  15. Michele says:

    Love your outfits today! The denim shirt is great. As for reading material … I love to gather all my paper art magazines by Stampington and Co. and head out to the backyard.

  16. Kristy says:

    I just asked all my friends the same question. Everyone said, The Help. I’m on my way to pick up a copy and then off to the family cabin. :)

  17. Penny says:

    OK, your adorable, but the first outfil looks too big, and doesn’t flatter you at all. OK, I don’t mean to be mean-just a “girlfriend” comment.

  18. I would definitely take the book I am 3/4 through… ‘These is my Words’. It is amazing!

  19. I recently got back into One Thousand Gifts. Id started it months ago when I first bought it but just couldnt stay with it. Now is obviously the right time for me to read it; its pertaining to “To every thing there is a season…” :)

  20. Angie says:

    I would have my kindle loaded with Janet Evanovich’s new Stephanie Plum novel, Smokin’ Seventeen.

  21. Melissa says:

    Magazines. I love Real Simple, Sunset, InStyle, and [hate to admit it] Martha Stewart. Plus I just got married, so I still have a ton of wedding magazines that I still look through.

  22. Anita Moss says:

    Love the denim and Floral. I’m with Melissa lots of magazines and Jean Auel’s last book from her earth children series.

  23. Tina says:

    I love flipping through magazines!

  24. Sarah says:

    Cute outfit! I think in a situation like that, a magazine would be the way to go. Light reading!

  25. Paige says:

    If I’m lucky enough to be at the beach..I’m too busy taking it all in…No reading there. I’m a Real Simple or Coastal Living girl. Love the outfits.

  26. becca says:

    um, ok. I think you are fabulous, and I love both outfits and I think they fit you just fine and are flattering as well.

    Reading material: Nicholas Sparks’ new book, I bought it and am like 2 chapters in – I bought it the week it came out. Having two small kids makes it hard to read. 😉 HA!

  29. Sarah-Kate* says:

    Architectural Digest all the way baby! :)

  30. Sarah says:

    For that kind of reading, I’d probably go for a food-related magazine, a Jodi Piccoult book, or the book I just picked up- Tina Fey’s Bossy Pants.

  31. Leslie says:

    Every week I come over and see what you are wearing and I just have to say that you are a beautiful person! You just have this natural beauty!!

  33. Meredith says:

    probably the book i’d have is either a Dresden Files or Stephanie Plum series books. :)

  38. Philippa says:

    Hi Lisa, I would have to have a heart-stoppingly lovely romance novel (I draw the line at Mills and Boon though, giggle) that would take me away into another world of romance and flowers! xxx

  39. Laurie Ann says:

    I’m a magazine junkie girl. I love Real Simple, In Style, Vanity Fair, Atomic Ranch, Los Angeles Magazine, Rolling Stone, the weekly tabloids.
