Before the cut

Wrap: TjMaxx ($32)
Button-Up: Thrifted ($3)
Jean Shorts: Swapped
Tights: AA
Shoes: Thrifted ($3)
These photos are making me miss my mom's house, today was definitely back to reality. I was so excited that we got some snow while we were up there, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it snows in Massachusetts soon. I love the field behind our house, if you follow the trail into the woods it brings you to a stream, a pond, and up a mountain. I love where I grew up, I certainly did not appreciate the remote-ness when I was younger, but now I love having a place where I can completely escape technology and have pure quiet. Our closest neighbor is about a mile away, and it's pitch dark out at night, making it perfect for star-gazing, and there's nothing like having a fire in the fireplace after a cold day.

I always intend to take tons of outfit photos when I'm home, with so many photo spots, but almost every time I end up wearing the same outfit all weekend! That's the story with this one, I wore a different incarnation of this comfy ensemble through out the entire time I was up there. I really can't get enough of this cozy shawl from TjMaxx, and easy jean shorts. Sometimes if the outfit is right, it's worth repeating! I wish I had gotten some close-ups, but I forgot my remote! I did however, get more photos of my mom's dog:
Bones is clearly a born model (you can see her other dog Rusti in the background). I'll have some photos of my new hair later in the week, but stick around tomorrow for a giveaway!

I also find myself wearing the same outfit each day of a visit at home. This one is definitely worth repeating. I love the proportions!

Oh, and clearly Bones is trying to steal your thunder in these shots! :)

Such beautiful pictures! You can feel the peace and quiet in these photos. Your outfit looks so comfortable and perfect for settling in at home on a long weekend. Glad you had a good one. I've been kind of craving snow lately too, and it's just starting to get cold enough.

Of course any outfit pictures where the pups make an appearance is just fine by me! Cuties.

Theses photos are great! They remind me of where my family's cabin is up in the interior of BC. Canada. I wonder what time of day this was. The light is great. Love your dog, too!

Hi Julie! I've been reading your blog for a good part of the year, but have yet to leave a comment. I just wanted to let you know that yours is my favourite style blog out there! Your style is amazing, you have such an eye, and your hair is a force to be reckoned with. You seem like such a sweet lady. I always look forward to your posts. Take care and have a happy December!

Wow - new cut?!?! Excited to see.
Also - love dog pics. The pic of you and Bones could pass for a Call of the Wild editorial spread. Definitely looks like a wild wolf from the back in that setting! love it.
