London Bus in Mint

boden print + stripes

Thanks for all your well wishes on the move, ladies!

Talk about first world problems. I have too much stuff. It was a bear to move it all. We're all in our new house now but it'll take a looooong while for us to finish unpacking and finally settle in. Pup is a bit freaked out over the new smells and new place. The closet is a disaster. I've been avoiding going to the market for a massive restocking trip. There's a weed the size of a small tree in the front yard. My outfits these last few days have consisted of ratty jean shorts and over-sized tees. So please enjoy an outfit from more peaceful pre-moving days.

  1. Moves are stressful. Once you get through it all though you will begin to feel like yourself again. Remember to breathe : )

  6. Oh man, moving is so annoying. We have been in our new place ( a multi-state move) almost a year and I STILL have stuff I have placed in a back storage room and have not been motivated to touch. Best of luck with that whole process. Hopefully you are liking the new place, even if it does not quite like home yet!

    1. We've organized our garage already and there are boxes we just put up on shelves. I can pretty much guarantee the content of those boxes won't see the light of day foooorever!

  8. The scarf is gorgeous and so are you. I can't wait to see new pics from your new digs but I must admit I'm going to miss your yellow walls and that staircase; they've become so iconic to you.

  9. Man, I've been slacking on the commenting! Glad you finished with the move but I feel ya on the unpacking..it's the WORST!! And I swear moving is always the hardest on our furry friends. Poor Copa was so confused when we moved last summer. But now she loves her new space & new smells outside. Can't wait to see the new background in your pics :-)

    1. My pup is way confused, she won't wander too far if we're not outside with her (which is not a bad thing necessarily). If I let her out the back by herself, she'll just sit down on the porch, hehe.

    1. After the house situation gets settled, we've got to worry about other important stuff like best new neighborhood pizza joint, froyo, closest Target ...

    1. When you're in the midst of a move, it often feels like the worst idea in the world - but we're slowly and surely settling in.

  20. masterful mix of stripes and pattern, I just love it Lisa!
    and I feel you, I also just moved, but I am unpacked and despite my husbands dire predictions, i have room to spare. Oh the miracle of closet designers!
    Moving is a bear, I did mine over slowly over a few weeks, I felt like that weed in your lawn!

    1. I have literally both our clothes in one closet at the new place (whereas my blazers and jackets lives elsewhere in my old place) so I am loving the new closet situation. Room to spare - me likey!

  21. Moving is so stressful, but it will all be worth it once you are all settled in! Love this outfit, the colors are so fun together!

  22. Your print-mixing is always spot on. I love the double stripes. You look great in pastels. Gorgeous sandals, scarf and bracelet.

    Every time I have on a bunch of prints and colors like in my latest outfit (from July 15th) I think of you Lisa, because you always do an impeccable job of pattern-mixing and wearing colorful outfits. Would love for you to check out my outfit. It has bows, stripes and more lol.

  23. I really need to hunker down and find us a new place too. We've got too much for this tiny place now! I hope things settle down soon!

  24. I am still following your blog, just not commenting so much anymore. As I have to save time somehow. Good luck on your new house. Hope you will be very happy there. Pup too. And I very much like this outfit. Especially the shoes.
