It's Still Monday - And Next Reader Post

It is full blown morning here in the SE but it is still dim as heck outside because of the rain. So in lieu of an outfit today (because shorts, a tee and and a hoodie for errand-running does not a real outfit make) here's an outfit I wore to a local trade show last week - tons of walking, so comfy shoes were definitely in order:


Cardigan: J. Crew Sunshine Peony (worn here and here before)
Top: Banana Republic sweetheart tee
Skirt: Banana Republic factory store (worn here and here before - similar-ish online here)
Shoes: Artisan by Clarks Herring bow flats (worn here before - similar online here and here)
Necklace: Ann Taylor Loft mesh chain (now on sale - worn here before)

+++

Thanks to all you wonderful ladies who participated in my reader feature last week - we'll definitely do outtakes again next week, so please hold on to your perfectly imperfect pics!

For this week's Respect the Outfits post, send your favorite outfit - Whether it was for a black-tie ball or Saturday soccer practice, what you have worn that has made you feel your best?

Please shoot me your outfit pic along with (if you like) your outfit details and a brief description of why you love your particular outfit - you can send everything to respecttheshoes(at)live.com. Remember to scan your blog archives - most of my own fave outfits have been OOTDs. Post will go up on Thursday!

  1. Love this outfit Lisa, that skirt is awesome (I think I commented that the last time you wore it)... I normally delete my "outtakes"... maybe I'll start saving some good ones. I'll see if I can find a picture for this week!

  15. aw the cardigan is so lovely! hm, this week's challenge is tough. I don't know if I have an outfit like that, I'm not really one for favorites... maybe my speckled ink or oroya dress... gosh I dunno. It's a stumper!

  17. Oooo, I love the skirt and the little patterns on it! That cardigan is so gorgeous too! It looks so sunny and cheery. I love that you rotate themes for the Reader Outfits -- I missed out on the outtakes one last week (darn you, bad memory!), but I'll definitely try to find my favorite outfit to snap a photo of!

  20. Love your outfit Lisa- cardi rocks!! I'm in - I'll send my pic

  21. Thanks for digging the outfit, ladies. I think the Sunshine Peony print just lends itself to making a regular ole outfit into something a little bit more. It is definitely a go-to piece of mine when I need something business casual - it fits in just fine but still stands on its own.

    Kcookski - I'll post a "casual Lisa" outfit soon, but don't say I didn't warn you first! :o)

    Lori - ack, I didn't mean to make a stumper! But I know what you mean, I'll have to go through my archives to find something that really speaks to me!

    Liz - of course I'll have you! Are you kidding, I love your outfits!

  22. I love the Sunshine Peony cardi...I've stalked it forever on Ebay, but everyone else must be too, cuz I can't ever get my hands on it...sigh...

  23. I am in love with that skirt! I bet you can make shorts and a hoodie look fashionable. My girlfriend says lipgloss and sunglasses will glam up any outfit.

  24. I LOVE your J.Crew cardi. Is it from a couple of years ago? I like how you let it shine by pairing with neutrals. Can't wait to see people's fav outfits!

  25. Hey Lisa
    I love how you brightened up the light muted colours of your outfit with a coloured cardi. You always look classy. I would love to see you in trackie daks. I bet you would look really cute!
    I will send you an outfit for your feature tonight (im at work right now - Oz timezone!). I know just what to send...
    Cheers!

  27. Super cute!! The prints are just adorable and they work so great together!! What a great theme for this week too! :)

  28. Very, very pretty. And I love the mix of neutrals with the peachy tones in your cardigan. I have the Sunshine Peony pencil skirt, and you've inspired me to pair it with gray on top.

  29. I love the unexpected pattern mixing! i never would have put those patterns and colors together...but they go so well! You are truly so creative and an inspiration! keep it up...i love it!
