  1. Look at you all dolled up for the weekend - you look beautiful! I can believe it's April, but I can't believe how freezing cold it still is here in PA - brrrr! Jealous that you are in shorts and sandals!

  2. Love both of these outfits! I love when you do the give-a-way posts what a great idea & it allows people to find blogs they might not have before!

    I am doing a give-a-way in a couple of weeks, I hope I can be featured!


  3. Love both your outfits! Would NEVER had dreamt to wear the paisley shirt that way, will have to keep it in mind! Hope you're having a great weekend!

  4. both are great, LOVE the pattern mixing in the second.. you rocked it!

  5. Your black anthro dress is such a fun piece! I'm head over heels in love with the flirty hemline.
    And you have masterfully combined stripes and florals here, my dear. I'd say it's just about perfection!

    Leaving the House in THIS?!?!

  6. Oh wow. Your outfits are so pretty and feminine and WARM WEATHER appropriate.
    It's still cold and dreary here in WI. I can't wait to bare my legs and don some pretty light outfits.

  7. I love your mixed patterns and bright flats in outfit #2, everything works so well together.

  8. Super-cute weekend outfits Lisa, love the stripes and sparkles top!

  9. you have such a knack for being super creative with your outfits, yet they always make sense! Love these outfits!!

    xo, Ashley

  11. What great looks! I love the floral print shorts and your necklace in the first outfit is so cool!

  12. Cute spring ensembles Lisa! You are looking quite sultry in that first outfit. I can't believe it's April too. Time goes by so fast, doesn't it?

  14. Both outfits are great, but the pattern mixing has to be my favorite look!! Love the gold clutch!! :)

  15. Gorgeous. I love how you paired the chemise with that blouse. And the floral shorts?! Love them. Seems you had a very cute weekend and that the weather is warmer where you are versus here. Jackets all weekend and cold breezes. :(

  16. You look so cute!! I adore those pink shoes I think they are calling my name!

  17. Soooo jealous! here you are in summer already. not fair.

    How did I miss the sequin stripes- I LOVE it!

  18. Those shorts are so cute on you!

    one word


  20. those shorts are adorable!!! <3

  21. Goodness! How fun is the second outfit? You WORKED it!! BTW- love the new header. You had me at the shoes.

  22. Wow I follow your blog and I must say your two outfits are amazing! The first one compliments your proportions perfectly and has a sweet touch with the swinginess of the dress. And you in the shorts and sequin tee is so chic. I love the combination. So unexpected. :)

  23. I love the asymmetrical hemline on that Anthro dress. I can just see it flowing in the breeze.

    And the second outfit is perfection. Those shorts have such a fun print and looks great with a little sequin action.
    I was just thinking about buying a pair of fuschia sandals and this only intensifies that urge! Thanks, Lisa!!!
