What I Wore Wednesday {same shirt, two ways}

May 2nd | what i wore wednesday

Hi friends! It’s Wednesday and I’m linking up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for some fashion inspiration.

The weather has been all over the place–from super sunny and warm to overcast and chilly. I prefer sunny and warm! So with crazy weather, layering is key. Today I’m showing you two ways to wear a striped tee. My long sleeved tee is from Banana Republic.

The first day I wore the tee layered over a blue button down. It added interest and kept me cozy.

Bits of my heart bracelet, My shop. {it’s been so popular, we can’t keep it in stock!}

Scarf, Forever 21

Jeans, Anthropologie. Boots, Fossil.

Then the very next day I wore the same top again but styled under a denim jacket from the Gap. Red wedges, Payless.

Green skinny cords, Anthropologie.

My deer necklace, my shop.

Wooden bangles, thrifted.

Bits of my heart, My shop.

Here are the two outfits side by side so you compare. Same top, but different looks. To be honest, I often wear the same thing two days in a row. Why not? Then I don’t have to hang it back up in the closet and it cuts back on laundry. How about you, do you ever wear the same thing two days in a row?

    I wear the same piece twice all the time! Works for me. Love your choices with the stripes!

  3. LOVD says:

    Is your hair naturally curly?

  4. Michele says:

    I love both of your outfits! Fun to see the shirt used in two different outfits! Oh yes, I certainly wear things two days in a row… I would much rather spend time in my studio than doing laundry … hee hee!!
    Also, I really like your lipstick color … do you remember what you used??
    Happy Wednesday!

    I totally wear clothes twice (or more if they stay clean!) I love your layering style, I could use you to help me shop!! I’ll treat you to you coffee :)

  6. Heather S. says:

    I don’t wear the same thing two days in a row, but I do tend to wear them a couple times in the same week, accessorized differently.

  7. Caryl Hope says:

    Nope, not in a row but i use it a couple of times before putting it in the laundry. :-)

  8. Kristen says:

    I love these looks! Plus I have had my eye on that scarf from the first time you wore it. Of course, Forever 21 being what it is, they don’t have it anymore. :-( And yes, I sometimes wear the same thing two days in a row (and no one at work even notices)!

  9. Janelle says:

    I absolutely LOVE your beautiful curly red hair, Lisa.

  10. Sarah says:

    You look soooo good, lisa! Keep it up, girl! Have to admit that I was looking forward to seeing you in the leopard pants!!!! Want to know how you wore them.

  11. Those green cords are awesome – such a great color! And I love the tee layered over the denim shirt. Was it comfy? I love the look of button downs but I avoid them because I just can’t seem to find one that I’m comfortable in. Love to see how you accessorize with your own jewelry pieces too. :)

    I love both outfits and love how you wore the same shirt two days in a row! I also must say that I LOVE your hair, the color is so rich and little highlights…yeah, very pretty indeed!

  13. Anne says:

    As a kid I would wear a favorite dress day after day as long as my mother let me…:)…I remember a green gingham in particular…but now I usually switch things around…unless I know I’m going somewhere where no one will see me wearing the same thing I wore the day before. I don’t wear scarves…but I like the yellow flowers with the light blue tee…cute.

  14. Love that scarf! beautiful

  15. Kelly says:

    I really love those green Anthro pants! And yes, I’ll wear a shirt a couple times during the week, if the first wearing was only for a few hours.

  16. Emilee says:

    I love your hair!!! Can u do a post explaining how u style it? I gave naturally curly hair and can’t ever do it the way I like it…

  17. Lisa says:

    Love those green pants! I think I like look 2 the best.

  18. Great pattern mix! I love when you have a piece that works well with a bunch of different outfits.

  19. kim davis says:

    stunning as usual, L! how’d you get the “pin it” to pop up on each photo? you are just an html goddess it seems.

  21. Lisa says:

    You look gorgeous in both outfits!! And yep, I totally recycle clothes too. LOVE the boots from Fossil:)

  22. Holy shmoly that photo of you walking in the alley is amazing!
    I love my Deer necklace by the way. If anyone’s on the fence about getting I say DO IT! Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Treat yourself!

  23. Super cute! Love it. I re-wear stuff several days in a row all the time. Most cultures do… From my experience, it’s typically the Americans who think that’s a faux pas.

    Question: What length of chain do you have with that deer necklace? That’s what I want to have for some of my necklaces of yours. :)

    • Lisa Leonard says:

      Tsh! It comes on a 20″ chain but it is chunkier than our other chains! I will email you with more info!

  26. Reeve says:

    You always look SO GREAT! I want your whole closet;)

  27. Andrea Miller says:

    I love love love the way you have your scarf styled!!! Just wondering if you could explain how you got it to lay that way. I am just looking for new ways to wear my scarfs :)

  28. You have the best hair ever! And I love your jewelry! Love your outfits.
