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!

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¬†(if you’re reading this, you are already on the new site!).¬† Until everything is fully migrated, I will be posting at both A Closet Full of Clothes AND Laura Wears…, but eventually (probably by the end of September) I will start using the Laura Wears…¬†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 ūüôā

Shirt:  Club Monaco Frieda Cotton and Mesh top
Shorts:  Club Monaco {sold out, but they have other similar styles still available Рhere and here.  As does J.Crew}
Bracelets:  Gorjana leather wrap; thrifted bangles; c/o INPINK infinity bracelet
Sunglasses:  Aldo {Cdn link here}
Purse:  Pour la Victoire Haven
Shoes:  SoftMoc {similar}

These silk bermuda shorts have quickly become my summer favorite.  I really like the flowy silk and the longer length.  Maybe I am getting old or maybe I am just too picky (or looking in the wrong place), but I’m really unimpressed with the shorts offerings this summer.  Everything seems too short.  And too tight.  Anything that doesn’t fit into the above category seems to be made of cotton.  Which inevitably wrinkles…quickly.  I think that’s why this Club Monaco pair is in such high rotation.  They are the polar opposite of everything I mentioned above.  And perhaps, in a way,  they are my own personal protest against the summer parade of daisy dukes and hot shorts.

This is one of my favorite morning rituals – sitting outside in our small orchard and drinking a cup of tea.¬† Even though the dogs didn‚Äôt make in into any of today‚Äôs photos, they are always around ūüôā¬† I think I set up a scavenger hunt for them before taking these photos (I hide treats all over they yard – they have to sniff them out – it‚Äôs keeps them quite occupied!).¬†
