When I opened up the package that the sweet girls over at Style Tribe gifted me and saw this striped jumpsuit, I knew immediately how I wanted to feature it! Given my petite stature, the additional fabric on the top of this jumpsuit which was meant to be a loose front tie at the waist, created a bit of a challenge for me. However, I rarely struggle to find a clever and classy solution and with a little twist, it became a fitted back tie! I then added my favorite metal belt for even more definition at the waist and for that touch of evening glam!
If you know me, then you know I have SERIOUS time management issues….. que my #1 goal for 2019……. ……………… 1. Be better at time management! UGH. So, last night at approximately 5:30pm, I frantically scooped up my boys and my camera and we were out like a flash to find a spot in town before there was complete darkness. It was so very cold, brrrrrrrrr, but thankfully it worked out beautifully, and was totally worth it! Of course, nothing I am wearing outside of the jumpsuit is new or current but I’ll be sure to add similar items below if you’d like to recreate this look!

1 skirt 5 ways: If you are anything like me, versatile pieces take up a large part of your wardrobe! I need my clothes to take me through each season if possible, so I can mix and match to create new looks all the time! I tend to hold onto my clothes for years so I really look for items that can work hard for me and that flatter my petite 5’2 figure.
When I found this rust colored corduroy skirt with buttons, I knew I had to have it! There is just something about this color that calls my name! This length of skirt really helps me feel as tall as possible and this one especially feels sophisticated, fun, and is SO versatile! I could have done 10, 15, 25 looks or MORE, honestly! I am really looking forward to styling this skirt a TON this fall! I’m not a celebrity, so there’s no “one and done” around here when it comes to fashion! 😉 When I love something, I wear it like crazy!
SO, here it is: 1 skirt, 5 ways.
DAY: BRUNCH//ERRANDS//SCHOOL FUNCTIONS//The sky is the limit! And this would also be adorable with a black bag and a pair of kicks like these
LISA’S FALL DAILY UNIFORM: That’s right. THIS was the first thing I put together when I got this skirt and as soon as I put it on, I fell madly in love! This is so me, and something I will wear OFTEN, with MANY variations! I just ordered 4 new tops ( here and here and here and here ) and I am super excited to pair at least a few of them with this versatile skirt!
NIGHT: DATE NIGHT//GIRLS NIGHT…… Full disclosure, I put this together in a pinch after scrapping my first idea and while it isn’t my favorite (due to me not thinking it through enough, and forgetting that I was going to slide the skirt over to make the buttons be on the side (SUPER CUTE by the way), I love how easy it pairs with black and of course I am obsessed with my earrings and bracelet from one of my very favorite local small businesses, BOXX JEWELRY. I can envision SO many date night variations with this skirt and intend to try them out for sure! Just imagine…….black booties like these: here and here , with a cute black bodysuit like one of these: here and here and here , and a black leather jacket: here and here …………Y E S!!!!!!
SO, go and grab this skirt or a similar one and put your spin on it! If you post a picture to Instagram, use the hashtag #thefamilyof3styleinspo and @thefamilyof3 in your caption for a chance to win a little Fall gift! 😉

Moms, how many of you feel like you would give anything to stop time when it comes to your babies? Our youngest, and most adorable best friend turned SIX yesterday!
Sometimes I can’t even breathe when I think about how fast time is flying, but just like any parent, we are soaking up and counting every second that we can! What better way to keep track of those precious seconds, than with this gorgeous wood watch by JORD? I have had some beautiful watches in my life, but none compare to the unique and elegant styling of this ( JORD Zebrawood & Maple Watch ) from the Fieldcrest series. So, even though we can’t actually STOP time, we CAN keep time, with this beautiful series of watches.

While I have always liked gingham…. I didn’t know I was obsessed until I spotted this skirt. You may have heard me talk about my love for SIC Couture in Dallas, but did you know that SIC Couture is a brand made in NYC, not just a boutique? I always count myself extra lucky when I can nab one of her pieces and this skirt was a huge score for my wardrobe! I already have a million ideas of what I want to pair it with and I know it’s going to get a ton of wear!

I am going to call this one of my life highlights. A blip of time that shined for me and felt really special. I was a guest on a podcast. A podcast called ‘Breakfast with Sis’. Two of my favorite people run this fun podcast, and it was such an honor to be on with them! We started the morning with a photography session to capture this adorable father/daughter duo for promotional purposes and it was so much fun! Here is the first sneak peek!!!
Once we finished the photo session, we headed back in to Chick-fil-A (have I mentioned their intense love for the Chick?) and had our breakfast before recording the podcast. It was truly, SO much fun, and I would love for you to check it out when you can! It’s a perfect listen for a workout, drive to work, or anytime you can spare about 50 minutes 😉 I think I may have the ‘on air’ bug, because I really, REALLY want to do it again! Breakfast with Sis – episode 31 with @Thefamilyof3
Alli K Design is such an incredible artist and it has been a whirlwind few years for her! Watching her grow this business and see her success has been incredibly fun! You should follow along, because who doesn’t love florals?! 😉
“I’m blue da ba dee da ba daa, da ba dee da ba daa, da ba dee da ba daa”……. OK, ok, ok…. you get the point! Right? HA! Blue is my very favorite color and it just so happens that my new favorite pair of gladiator sandals goes with everything blue! AND BEYOND! I wanted to show these beautiful babes off with a quick photoshoot featuring some different summer outfits that look great with them! I have the ‘Blue Lime’ version of course, but if your favorite color is pink, then she has you covered with her ‘Crazy Candy’ version!
