    Jeans or pants for sure, though I like dresses and skirts too.

    jeans!!! fun story. I love fall because it means a new season of our Coffee Break Bible study starts up. Yesterday as I was getting dressed I realized that I ” Look Like Lisa” today :) I wore my hair wavy, not straightened and I wore my Guess skinny jeans, my new long grey sweater, and white rouched t and cami underneath, with black ballerina flats.

  8. Cheri says:

  9. rach says:

    Jeans jeans and more jeans

  10. becca says:

    that’s a tough question! the idea of skirts/dresses is a wonderful thing because they’re so free… but i’m not always the most lady-like, so jeans are really a must. so fine, jeans! (by the way, you’re adorable.)

  11. M.O.T.B says:

    Very well put together Lady! Gotta hand it to you, you look GREAT!

  12. Amy Mumaw says:

    Jeans for sure…. I teach school so dressing up gets old!!!

  13. siobhan says:

    dress/skirt totally:)

  14. Paige says:

    I’d rather wear a dress or skirt! Love your striped Anthro dress! Super cute.

  15. Margie Brown says:

    100% Jeans! I love capris! I love cuffing them at the bottom just like you do!

  16. polly says:

    Definitely jeans … if I had great legs, it would be a different story! :) I love your syle – so cute!

  17. Kelly H-Y says:

    I’d have to go with jeans/pants, for sure!
    You look great … love the outfits and accessories!

  18. Megan says:

    If I could afford cute dresses, I’d do dresses for sure. Otherwise, jeans!

  19. Erin M. says:

    Dresses and skirts!

  20. peachgirl says:

    Definitely jeans and pants.

  21. KaraM says:

    Dress or skirt for sure! I consider skirts my summer sweat pants…just doesn’t get more comfy than a good skirt!

  22. Ileana says:

    100% skirts – dresses would be alright too. I agree with KaraM – super comfort in a skirt. Anytime, any place!

  23. bettyann says:

    you look fab..I could live forever in shorts and jeans…though I love my dresses..

  24. Mary says:

    Dresses! My favorite combo is dress and boots…and I’m jealous that it’s already cool enough where you live to wear boots. In TX we have had one cold front but it’s already back into the high 80’s. Sigh.

  25. Beana says:

    I’ve developed a new appreciation for skirts and dresses in the last year or so. They are pretty forgiving when you are feeling frumpy–especially around the middle after having babies! And when it’s hot, they are more comfortable than shorts sometimes. I assume it wouldn’t be the same skirt everyday… :)

  26. Kimberly Marcus says:

    dresses and skirts…I wear them all the time…

  27. Jennifer says:

    first of all…you are too adorable!! Love that green necklace and your red shoes!! :)
    That’s a hard question, but if I had to choose probably dress/skirt :)

  28. Krista says:

    You’re so darned cute! For some reason this cracks me up when you do this, but I love it!!

  29. Marnie says:

    That’s a hard choice, I love jeans but I also love skirts.

  30. tiffany day says:

    oh definately pants/jenas!!

    happy wednesday lisa!

    have a great rest of the day!


  31. Dana says:

    This past week I have woren a lot of skirts, but I really like Jeans more.

  32. Ann says:

    dress/skirt, for sure!!

  33. i would wear jeans. probably because i have a job where i have to “dress up” that jeans are my comfy casual, weekend option and i love them. it’s strange though, when i was a kid i HATED jeans. my mom could never get me to wear them.

  34. Lorri says:

    Jeans….except August in Georgia would be miserable! I said a few prayers for you and your family today. I can’t imagine the inner struggle, but the surgeon would make me a feel a LOT better. Best of luck!

  35. Philippa says:

    Hi Lisa, oh I wish I could say dress/skirt but practicality means I have to say Jeans, jeans and jeans. I spend most of my time on our property gardening so a dress (sob sob sob) is just not practical! I love feeling feminine and I do get VERY tired of jeans.. hmmmm may need to try skirts? Laugh out loud! Smiles…

  36. melissa says:

    i think i would have to go with jeans…living in MN, since winter is so much longer then summer. if the weather was a non issue…it would be a comfy dress!

  37. Michelle F says:

    Definately jeans. I love the ruffle blouse. It would also be cute paired with pearls. Cheers.

  38. Erin says:

    Dress/skirt! I can’t get enough of them. :)

  39. Kim T. says:

    Pants, Pants Pants!!! Funny, the hubby and I have been discussing this issue lately. I wish I could say skirts/dresses, as they are definitely more feminine and that’s his preference. But I get so stinkin’ cold all the time, and it’s not as easy running after 4 littles in a skirt. and it’s defintitely not easy nursing in a dress. sigh. how do others keep warm in a skirt/dress in cold weather???

  40. April says:

    You are so cute Lisa! I wish I could pull off a dress or skirt. All my fat goes right to my stomach so the dress thing looks awful on me, so I will have to pick jeans…… far!!!

  41. Sarah says:

    Skirt or dress…but only with the stipulation that I can wear tights or leggings underneath in the winter.

  42. I’d probably go with a dress. That’s usually the direction I lean.

    I just wanted to let you know that I just posted about the necklace I received from you at The Creative Connection and how it’s got me thinking. If you have a moment, I hope you’ll pop over. =)

  43. Jeans! :) Love your outfits! You are adorable!!! :)

  44. Leigh says:

    In the interest of full disclosure, I would pick dress/skirt if I didn’t have to shave every day. Enter laser hair removal!

  45. Michele says:

    I love the allora handmade necklace. So cute and so are your other outfits. I’d wear a dress/skirt if I had to choose.

  46. Kami says:

    I totally love LisaLeonard! and I love the skirt with boots outfit. So cute!

    ps. I hope everything goes well with the heart surgeon. You are such a strong woman. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. <3

  47. Amy says:

    As much as I love to wear jeans, I’d have to choose dress/skirt. But I’m with Leigh on getting laser hair removal if I was never allowed to wear pants again.

  48. Jean M says:

    Love your outfits as always! As much as I love wearing a dress/skirt, I’d choose jeans.

  49. Kirra Sue says:

    To be honest, your WIWW is my favorite. Just sayin’. Love your style & love your curls!

  50. JEANS! Hands-down. I love all your outfits. You have such great style 😉 The polka blouse, red shoes, and LLD bracelet outfit was my fave! So classic.

  51. Dana says:

    skirt! And you look great!

  52. Grenda says:

    Jeans for sure! I just don’t have the energy to shave my legs every single day! : )

  53. Mina says:

    no question–jeans!

  54. liz says:

    skirts / dresses all the time. Also, I am IN LOVE with that necklace and am having such a hard time deciding which color I want to buy. Love it!

  55. Becky says:

    I would definately have to go with jeans / trousers. That is what I wear 90% of the time. My climate is HOT and I find that it can get a little uncomfortable wearing skirts when it’s really hot – they stick in all the wrong places. Sweaty legs are not nice ! I love all your outfits – you look so fabulous – I have to get myself one of those adorable Allora necklaces – they are just beautiful – the only problem is, which colour to choose – I want them all !!!

  56. JennK says:

    Definitely jeans. Nothing beats a pair of perfectly fitting jeans.

  57. Suzanne says:

    Definitely pants and jeans!

    Thanks for introducing me to allora handmade. I just ordered a couple of gifts. Too cute!

  58. Morgan says:

    Oh man, tough choice, but I’d say dress/skirt. I’m not really skirt or pants other than jeans girl, but I love dresses and jeans.
