Capsule Wardrobe Lookbook | Nov 6-12

Whoa!  What a week. I didn’t know what it would bring but started it off with my favorite shirt and favorite hot chocolate.


Sunday: Church tee | Liz Claiborne jeans

This outfit may not seem different at first glance but I wore my oxblood color shoes.  I *never* do that but it’s just a subtle change to my outfit to keep it fresh.


Monday: | JCP boyfriend jeans

Tuesday…Election Day.  It didn’t turn out as I anticipated but I felt pretty cute!  This is a newer top from Stylus but the thing about the shirt is it seems to always have static.  How do you get rid of that?


Tuesday: Stylus top | Leggings


Wednesday: Worthington top | Liz Claiborne jeans

On Thursday I wore a new top and a new pair of pants!  I was going to a realtor luncheon and they were giving away door prizes and I wanted to look cute.  It must have worked because I won an Apple Watch!


Thursday:  Stylus top | Liz Claiborne jeans

Friday….ahhh sweet Friday.  It was Veterans Day but in realty we don’t really have a “day off”.  Plus I also run a nonprofit that supports those with a loved one going into the Air Force *and* I create content on YouTube so the days sometimes run together.

I did get a new pair of distressed boyfriend jeans and thought Friday was a perfect day to try them out.  I really, really like distressed boyfriend jeans.  These are by Liz Claiborne and they are super comfy.


Friday: Liz Claiborne top | Liz Claiborne jeans | TOMS

That was my lookbook for last week!  Feel free to leave a comment with a link to your blog if you’d like me to check it out!

Stay awesome!! ~lisa


Capsule Wardrobe Lookbook | October 30-Nov 5

It’s another week!  And I’m back in my comfy shirt!


Sunday:  Comfy church t-shirt | Liz Claiborne jeans

Happy Halloween!  I didn’t dress up this year.  Or last year….and probably not the year before but who’s counting! ha!  Did you dress up?


Monday: St. John’s Bay top | boyfriend jeans

Comfy was the order of the day on Tuesday.  Don’t tell me leggings aren’t pant.


Tuesday: Stylus top | leggings

Now….I like this color top and have had the pants for a while but today this outfit was just not working for me.  As I look back at the pic the whole outfit looks really baggy.  I used to wear these pants with heels and now I wear flats most often.  I’ll have to think about that the next time that I wear them because I want to look pulled together and not frumpy.


Wednesday:  a.n.a. top | Worthington pants


Thursday:  a.n.a. top | boyfriend jeans | Sperry’s



Friday:  ALYX shirt | Massimo maxi skirt

So that’s what I wore last week.  How about y’all?

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa


Capsule Wardrobe Lookbook | Oct 23-29

Why is this pic so blurry??  Oh well…you still get the idea.  This was another travel day.  This time, traveling back home so again you know that I am all about the comfort factor.



Y’all remember I said I was going to keep this kimono in my fall wardrobe?  Well here it is! I personally think the colors are better suited for fall.  Overall we have a pretty mild winter as well so this will work well even beyond fall.


Monday:  | Boyfriend capris by JCP

Tuesday I had a couple of appointments as well as an event to go to in the evening.  I needed to wear something that would work for both so I chose a black top and my new olive green Liz Claiborne pants.

You’ll notice I have my cute new shoes on.  Those did not last through the evening because I am still trying to “break them in” and they started to hurt my feet a bit.  I switched them out for some leopard print flats.

Tuesday:  | Liz Claiborne pants

It’s WooHoo Wednesday and today and I’ve got one of my favorite a.n.a. button up shirts.  Or is it button down?  Either way this is a fav and I have it in several colors.


Wednesday: a.n.a. top | Liz Claiborne jeans

This week I paired my wine colored polka-dot tunic top from Stylus with my olive Liz Claiborne pants.


Thursday: Stylus top | Liz Claiborne pants

It’s FRIDAY! WooHoo!!  A lightweight sweater over this teal colored top and my fav Liz Claiborne jeans is a great way to end my week.


Friday: a.n.a. top | Liz Claiborne jeans

Capsule Wardrobe Lookbook | Oct 16-22

This week was not going to be a usual one as I was going to be traveling.  We started off the week by going to church on Sunday so of course I wore my church shirt.  And by church shirt I mean the t-shirt with our church logo on it.  I wear it almost every Sunday and would probably wear it every day because it is that comfortable.


Sunday: Church t-shirt | a.n.a. capris

I try to plan out my outfits for the entire week so that I have one less thing to think about in the morning and this week was no exception.  So for Monday I paired one of my favorite Briggs New York tops with a black maxi skirt.  But can we take a moment for my shoes?  I mean, how cute are they?


Monday: Briggs New York top | black maxi skirt

Tuesday was a last minute prep day and I forgot to take a pic of what I wore.  I can assure you that whatever it was, it was super comfy.

Wednesday was our first travel day to Washington state and I wore my brand new tunic top from Stylus and paired it with some leggings.  When traveling comfort is key for me….heck comfort is key every day for me!


Wednesday: Stylus top | leggings

Thursday brought another new Stylus tunic top and I must say….I really, really love them!  I paired it with an olive green pair of Liz Claiborne pants.


Thursday: Stylus top | Liz Claiborne pants

It’s cooler in the Pacific Northwest and so I was able to rock out my green flannel H&M shirt.  Under it I have a white graphic tee and with it I wore my Liz Claiborne jeans.


Friday: H&M flannel | Liz Claiborne jeans

Another flannel, this time from J. Crew was what I chose for Saturday.  I paired it with some black Liz Claiborne jeans.


Saturday: J. Crew flannel | Liz Claiborne pants

Well that was what I wore last week!

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa


Capsule Wardrobe Lookbook | Oct 9-15



I love the colors in this top.  The colors feel like they could cross over into my fall capsule wardrobe but the material is a very thin, chiffon type fabric so I am thinking I’ll put this one up for the fall/winter.  I could change my mind.



This outfit just screams glamour, don’t you think?  It’s my State Fair of Texas Livestock Committee Volunteer shirt and I paired it with my favorite Liz Claiborne jeans.  The orange vest?  Well that’s a one of a kind specialty item that I unfortunately didn’t get to keep.  It’s got some pizazz though…for dayyyyyysssss.



This outfit brought out a random fashion rule that I didn’t realize I had.  See those super cute leopard print shoes (Payless if you are wondering)?  Well they have that kind of light brownish color in them so I just feel like I should accessorize with gold jewelry.  But the shoes have silver pony beads and that threw me off.  Obviously I went for the gold but it made me realize that I had a rule about wearing leopard and gold…who knew.



I totally feel like a munchkin when I wear this maxi skirt but I also love it and won’t stop wearing it.



I paired this black knit vest with my teal top and I like the look.  Just trying to mix things up and keep them interesting as I transition to my fall pieces.



WooHoo it’s Friday!  I volunteered again and so I’m wearing that awesome volunteer shirt but seriously….I need to clean my TOMS.

Hope y’all had a great week!  Link your blog in the comments so I can see what you wore!

Stay awesome! ~lisa

Last Week’s Lookbook

IMG_6907Tuesday:  St. John’s Bay shirt | a.n.a. capris |Payless flats

And that’s what I wore!  Trying to mix it up just a bit and pairing different tops and bottoms and trying to wear different shoes.  I am “expanding” my wardrobe without necessarily buying any new items.  🙂
