Parent/Teacher Conference OOTD

Today I went to 2/3 of my appointed parent/teacher conferences, so I whipped out my brand new Breezy Polkas Cardigan in red. This is my "I hope my child is not a juvenile delinquent/terrible disruption/insubordinate pain in the ass" outfit. All jokes aside, the kids received glowing reviews from their teachers. I couldn't be prouder.

Proudest mom OOTD:

Cardigan: Anthropologie Breezy Polkas
Dress: Anthropologie Oratory Dress
Belt: Anthropologie Infinity Belt
Shoes: Coach (circa 2006)

I have decided that I can't do brown belt with black shoes. It gave me a dirty feeling. You won't be seeing that look again on the Lyzipologie blog, ya'll. Not a good look.

Conversation with my husband:

H: "So what is this blog about?"
L: "I post a picture of my outfit every day and talk about what I'm wearing."
H: "Okay...... Do you have enough clothes to do something like that?"
L: "I don't know, baby- Do I?" Enter my most hopeful, doe-eyed look ever.

Breaking All The Rules

Today was warm, but rainy and humid, so I didn't attempt to neaten my hair. Neat hair is overrated in my world.

Here is my OOTD:

Without belt.

With belt.

Dress: Thrifted, purchased from Sara of Anthropologie Treasurebox
Belt: Anthropologie Checkerboard Belt
Tights: George, from Walmart
Shoes: Nine West (circa 2008), from

I know what you are saying! "But Lyzi! You are wearing black shoes with a brown belt! And navy tights, too? Girl... Have you lost your damn mind?" Maybe I have, but I am trying to let go of all of passé fashion rules of yore. I just haven't decided if I can pull it off...

Oh heavens, my kids are sitting at the dining room table and my littlest one just remarked that my "number" (age) is "really high". Thanks, son!

One of these things is not like the others.

Penny's Blog Debut

It was a gorgeous 76 degrees here in New Hampshire this afternoon! I hope this weather lasts until Halloween so my kids don't have to trick-or-treat in snowsuits.

Dress: Anthropologie Two Wheeler Shirtdress
Tights: George (from Walmart!)
Shoes: Charlotte Russe
Cat: Her name is Penny

These are my favorite shoes. Interestingly, I don't think I ever purchased cheap shoes before these. My younger cousin, Samantha, came to visit this summer and took me to stores that I feel like I am too old to shop in. I saw these babies in Charlotte Russe and they happened to be just my style. Much to my husband's dismay, I bought 6 pairs of (inexpensive) shoes during Samantha's 2 week visit. :)

About a week ago, I went temporarily insane and bought shitloads of tights from Walmart. I shop there maybe twice a year and have never ventured into their apparel department before then I am pleased to say. I bought about 8 pairs ranging in price from $3.50 to $5.00. I must say that they are virtually indestructible which is more than I can say for the $20 pair I got from Banana Republic that instantly snagged on their first wear. *Sigh*

My "Woke Up Late" OOTD

I fell asleep waiting for my turn with the laptop last night, so I'm posting Monday's outfit today. Yesterday I was not on my A game. I woke up late, the kids were late to school, and I was a hot mess in general.

Top: Anthropologie Blue Book Blouse
Cardigan: AE (circa 2007)
Jeggings: AE
Boots: Aldo (circa 2007)

There was no sale at Anthro last night, so my wallet is safe for another week. :)

If you have tuned in for my second post, thank you! There will be better outfits to come, I promise. :)

First Post!

Hi. I'm Lyzi. I'm 27 years old and I'm in love with playing dress up... with virtually no where to go. You see, I'm a stay at home mom of three terrific school-aged children, one of which is in half day kindergarten, so the greater part of my day is spent shuffling my kids to and from school or wherever else they need to be.

This weekend I purchased the Breezy Polkas Cardigan from Anthropologie on sale... in both colorways. I guess that kind of negates the sale price in a way... NO, NO, NO! I say it's two for the price of one! Currently, I only have one cardigan that I can use to winterize the 232983298 dresses I own and I think folks are starting to notice!

I can't wait to get these!

Tomorrow I'll be posting my first outfit of the day (OOTD). I hope to see you there!
