MODIFIED...

Hi, I am not going to apologize for my absence because I was in decorating mode as mentioned in my last outfit post.  I really needed to focus my time on getting the rest of my home in order.  It's not that I didn't think about blogging, believe me I did.  I had a fleet of ideas about outfits that I really wanted to wear but between the crappy weather (rain plus humidity) and having my husband home to help me move furniture in from the garage, I just could not get to it.  You understand, right?  Anyway, I posted these leggings by Bar III from Macy's as a new feature on my blog here.  I love the new feature but I think the outfit chosen was a bit premature for the weather so I modified it to fit the humidity.  As I searched through my closet for something else to wear with these leggings, I found a ton of items that will work but I settled on something lighter and more feminine to accommodate the weather and the season.  After all, it is still summer but in my mind as soon as September hits, I think it should be Fall and cooler.  It never is but I am always hopeful. 


 

 

 
 I've been posting a lot on instagram in which I'm having a lot of fun with.  Follow along @Suitcase Vignettes.  I was happy to see Julie of Orchid Grey following along with me on instagram.  Julie is a favorite of mine. I am also having fun with twobirds especially their pics of teeny baby Ben and their weekend fun.  Loving instagram  pics of Bethie the Boo's cats as you all know I love cats.  Hey to newer readers, so nice to meet you.   I have followed you back and look forward to getting to know you.  Have a great day!  dawn

All seems well with you and for that I am glad. I bet you will be glad to get your house back in order!
I'm with you on waiting for fall. I've been pinning fall inspiration outfits on pinterst for 2 months and now with my damn hip I can't wear any of my boots! Damn, I sure have some luck.
Take care!
