Leopard print shoes….and the rest of my outfit


Not sure why I thought standing practically in the plant was the best place to be…haha!!! 

I’ve searched high and low for a comfortable pair of leopard print flats and finally found some at Target for a very reasonable price!  I paired it with my favorite City Fit Liz Claiborne jeans, teal shirt and my comfy black sweater. 

What did you wear today?  Stay awesome!! ~lisa


My President’s Day #OOTD


My favorite olive green jacket is paired with my black and white striped shirt, Liz Claiborne City Fit jeans and some cute black flats.  It might not be too presidential but it’s definitely comfy!

Be my Valentine?


I wore red….again!  Twice in the same week!!  Calm down folks.  When I said I didn’t like red on me it was just a general statement.  It wasn’t like I was never going to wear red again.  Winking smile 

This CAbi jacket was too awesome to not wear on Valentine’s Day so I did.  I paired it with a white button shirt, a pair of my favorite comfy jeans and my brown cowboy boots. 

What was your Valentine’s Day outfit?  Tag @sideofawesome5 on Instagram…I’d love to see it!

Gut sucking is a thing….right?


I am SURE that I sucked in my stomach waaaay more than this picture indicates.  Like waaaaay more.  And maybe I should not have chosen a horizontal striped shirt. 

But honestly I did pair a black and white striped tank with a black maxi and added a comfy chambray shirt. 

What did you wear today?

Stay awesome y’all!  ~lisa

She wore blue……


My outfit today is a somewhat busy sheer print top that I paired with some skinny jeans and my favorite black flats.  The rose is courtesy of my co-workers desk.  I just felt like I needed to add a different color besides blue to the pic. 

Of course the rose made me think of the song by Seal.  I always thought it was “kissed by a rose on the grave”. 

It’s not. 


I just googled it and it says:
“Baby, I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray.”

What the heck??  My mind is blown.

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa

A happy Wednesday with a print scarf


That’s how my Wednesday went!  I paired a simple collared black shirt with my favorite boyfriend skinny jeans, black flats and a print scarf! 

Your fashion expression can be simple or detailed or just about anything in between.  My style tends to be relaxed and casual….kind of like how most of my days go!

Feel free to tag me on Instagram with your #ootd.  I love to see new outfit inspiration ideas.

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa

Reflect and Renew #OOTD

Sunday morning was beautiful and it was a great day to reflect and renew! 


I recently wore this same outfit with a jean jacket but today I paired my new black striped tee with my favorite olive jacket, skinny jeans and brown boots.  Definitely one of my favorite outfits to wear.

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa
