Long Weekend Casual

I hope everyone is having a great long weekend!  I was fortunate enough to have all three days off & so far I have spent most of my time working around the house or on the blog.  I am definitely a home-body, and nothing makes me happier than spending days outside with the dogs and working on my gardens.  I know this isn’t everyone’s idea of a great long weekend, but for me, it’s an absolutely perfect!

If you didn’t catch yesterday’s post - there’s a big blog change in the works.  I have decided to move over to a WordPress platform, and will be re-naming the blog A Closet Full of Clothes.  Until everything is fully migrated, I will be posting at both locations, but eventually (probably by the end of September) I will start using this Tumblr account to share single photos, as opposed to full posts (kind of like a more conventional Tumblr). 

Since an outfit post is long-overdue, I took a few quick photos last night in our backyard.  Georgie decided to join in on the fun too :)

Sweater:  Suss {bought through Hautelook}

Exciting News!

As I eluded to in this post, a big blog change is underway…

The main blog content has been moved over to (new site & a new name!).  

By the end of September, I hope to be fully migrated to A Closet Full of Clothes, and I plan to use this Tumblr site in more traditional ways (to share single photos, as opposed to full blog posts). 

Thank you so much to everyone who has followed my blog for the past few years.  I hope you will continue to follow my style journey at

Best wishes always, Laura

We are having an unseasonably cool August.  As a result, I have been bundling up more than normal.  While I am not impressed at what appears to be an early fall, I know the dogs are loving the cooler temperatures…  I suppose that can be the silver lining…

Unfortunately, since is has also rained on-and-off every day this week, I was unable to watch the Perseid meteor showers (clouds blocking the view).  This is normally one of my favorite summer rituals -  I can spend hours watching the night sky.  It really grounds me - makes me realize how we are part of something so much larger.
