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 🙂

Now that summer is here, I have been getting up early to run with Scooter (above), and George before leaving for work.  Since it is still quite warm in the evenings, our early-morning runs are a good opportunity to exercise the dogs in a cooler environment.  I recently found these leggings at Old Navy for under $20.  I liked the print and the price was right.  They seem to be holding up quite well {surprisingly well actually, considering the price}. 

Top:  GapFit Breathe Tee {love that this tee is slouchy, but does not lose shape when wet – 40% off with code GAPSAVE}
Leggings:  Active by Old Navy Printed Compression Capris {currently on sale! – 25% off with code MYSTERY}
Sunglasses:  a cheapo drugstore purchase
Shoes:  Asics

…and even though you can’t see it, I am wearing the Victoria’s Secret Angel Sport Bra and have my hair tied with Goody no-slip elastics (a must – my hair just falls out if I use regular hair ties}


On a bit of a random note:  you can now see my new Pinterest board {a collection of my favorite looks} on the Lucky Magazine Pinterest page {I won a Lucky Community contest in June and was awarded my own board – very exciting! This was the winning look}
