When a representative from Ricki’s asked me if I would like to test drive¬†a few pieces from their fall collection, I quickly jumped at the opportunity to pick out a new autumn¬†look. ¬†After a full-store (and website!) browse, along with¬†helpful recommendations from the sales staff, I decided on a¬†vest/tunic/leggings ¬†look.¬†¬†This is a slight departure from my everyday style because at the moment, my leggings tend to be reserved for work-out and lounge attire (this is a ridiculous¬†mental block as I have no problem wearing slim-fit pants, which are essentially just thicker leggings…).

Vest: ¬†c/o Ricki’s¬†¬†{I have actually been wanting a nice faux fur vest for a few seasons now, but I was unable to find something at a decent price point that didn’t look inherently cheap. ¬†This vest is incredibly soft¬†and is of much better quality than the other options I considered in the past}
Blouse: ¬†c/o Ricki’s
Leggings: ¬†c/o Ricki’s¬† {they keep their shape quite well!}
Necklace: ¬†c/o Ricki’s
Bracelets: ¬†both¬†c/o Ricki’s (here and here)
Purse:  Le Chateau {old}
Boots:  Enzo Angiolini {simliar}
Sunglasses:  Aldo

PS: I’m giving away a $50 gift card to Ricki’s – check back early next week for details!

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
