what i wore wednesday

September 7th | what i wore wednesday

it’s wednesday and i’m linking up with lindsey for some fashion inspiration!
this is an outfit i wore to the workshop {and then put on flip flops after i picked up the boys from school!}

jeans, joes–tj maxx. dress, gift from our english cousins {thank you mapleys!!}. sweater and wedges, target. belt, local boutique. and around my neck, loving our new family tree necklace.

today’s very important question…you’re attending a party with friends and you don’t know the attire.  would you rather show up for the gathering a little over-dressed or a little under-dressed?

  1. So pretty….

    Really just dress what I have..
    My man knows I need clothes, ha ha!

    Totally a little over-dressed, no question! Love that deep purple/pink color on you – I think it looks fantastic on you! Are those the same shoes you’ve referred to prior that said you couldn’t wait to take them off? Love the shoes, but are they worth the pain? I know…a cool looking pair of shoes and pain go hand in hand 😉

    Overdressed. For sure. Love the outfit – must be chilly in Cali, though! We’re not in jeans and lovely little sweaters yet.

  4. I love every single outfit of yours. Can we go shopping together please?

  5. A little overdressed for sure! I would love to be in sweater and jean weather right now. It’s still more like barefoot and tank top weather in Texas.

    Love the look!its gorgeous!its so cold outside i would love to wear a sweater today!:)

  7. Hey Lisa – you look fabulous as always. Joe’s jeans at TJ Maxx? Lucky duck!

    I prefer overdressed to underdressed.

  8. Jennifer says:

    Definitely overdressed! I love dressing up!

  9. I have to agree with everyone else – I would much rather be overdressed!! And always, you look fantastic!! I’ve tried the dress with the jeans and I look dorky :(

    in love with that dress; your english cousins know you well to get you clothes as a gift, am i right?

  11. carolyn says:

    I’m in the slightly underdressed category. If I’m overdressed for a party I feel like I’m trying too hard.

    I will agree with everyone else about that dress through – love it!

  12. Cristin says:

    I would say a lil overdressed! Just wish I had your wardrobe! I am on the lookout for some new clothes and some cute boots!! Love the fall!

    Definitely Over-Dressed. During the last Christmas season I wore a nice pair of black slacks with a sweater to my husband’s work Christmas party (it was a new job for him, so this was our first Christmas party). All of the other ladies wore prom style dresses. I felt totally under-dressed and uncomfortable. I learned my lesson, always go over-dressed.

  14. Kelli says:

    Overdressed, to be sure! I would feel confident.

  15. Nicole says:

    Love your look! And definitely overdressed…better safe than sorry!

  16. This is definitely a cute fall outfit, I love the way you play it up with your shoes :)

    If the party is all friends – comfortable which is usually a little underdressed. My friends all know my style – I work with 5 year olds!
    However, if the party was with friends but not all friends over dressed – I may work with 5 year olds, but I never want to embarass my friends…

  18. Paige says:

    LOVE the dress – so pretty on you! I’d rather be overdressed any day than underdressed.

  19. Nina says:

    Hi Lisa – Love the outfit! Great question! I justed asked myself that this weekend as I showed up for a campfire cookout at a horse farm in a cowboy hat and duds. Everyone else was in t’s and jeans. Oops! You know what? I felt pretty.

  20. Amanda says:

    A little overdressed for sure! If I was underdressed, I’d feel frumpy and out of place.

  21. Philippa says:

    Hi Lisa, so happy you had a wonderful trip to the UK. I’d definitely go a little overdressed, and include my favourite faux bling rings too – I don’t go out without them! xx

  22. Anne says:

    Over dressed…because I have been the one that was under dressed…and I felt like I stood out like a sore thumb. Vowed never to do that again. Love the outfit…but here I would over heat in it…between the temp and my hot flashes…haha…the thought of all those layers makes me hot. You always look nice in your dress & jeans combo…I, like a couple of others who have commented…just can’t seem to pull that look off…too short I think. Love the dress with the sweater….I could do that. :)

  23. You looked great in that color!!

    I am in love with that cranberry dress! The color is beautiful do you ever clear any in your closet? There are some really cute tulle dresses that I would love to purchase!
