work, work, work

I unfortunately did not have the day off. No long weekend for me:( Oh well. I had a quiet day at work and it went by fairly quickly. I went a great spinning (cycling) class after work and then ate lots of homemade pizza!

Once I got to work this morning and saw this post over at Bella Seattle, I was so excited that I wore this slip today! LC does a great job at showing different options for the Polka Pop slip.

Here is my take:

Cami: J. Crew
Cardigan: Plenty by Tracy Reese via Anthropologie
Dress: Anthropologie
Slip: Anthropologie
Tights: Hue
Shoes: Dansko

This picture of Talus is just too cute not to post:) This was taken today after a nice walk to the library with Ben.


  1. man, I wish I'd been paying attention to the intimates section at Anthropologie! I've missed out!!

  2. This outfit is a winner Kristin! I saw LC's post too and she is just the Anthro Layering Queen!!!!
    Sweet pic of Talus, he looks so sated and content :)

  3. Thatdamngreendress - I almost passed this slip up! Luckily, I was with a friend and she insisted that I get it. I bought it at the same time I bought this dress and she told me that they would be perfect together. I'm so glad I listened to her!

    Lisa - Thank you! Isn't Talus the sweetest thing? He was very content after his trip to the library:) He loves getting out of the house and interacting with other dogs/people.

  4. Hi Kristin, I have to say that you & Talus are both cute as can be! I have NEVER seen any intimates at my store.Either I'm blind or they don't carry them. I hear Austin has better selection of clothing.It's about an hours drive from here. But don't have time to just go to get clothing you know? Gas Prices :/ Your outfit looks so pretty. Everything over there looks so green! I LOVE GREEN!! Everything is still dead over here. No signs of Spring yet.Just great weather.

  5. Gorgeous. Love the slip. and that sweater is beautiful on you!

    The doggie is the cutest though. That face is just too sweet. Awwwwww. :)

  6. That is such a cool slip! I think it gives the dress a completely different feeling. Very pretty outfit.

  7. Gah, I just freaking love that slip. So sad I missed out on it!!

  8. You and LC are both making me wish I had this slip. It looks great layered with your outfit!!

  9. Your dress is gorgeous and I love the addition of the slip. It's a polka-dot peek :)

  10. Talus is adorable!

    And I am all about getting a gorgeous slip now so I can copy your look and LC's too!

  11. Love the slip peeking out under the dress! That cardigan is one of my faves too.

  12. Hi Kristin, I just sent you an email, hope you got it :)

  13. Gabby - All of the green is one positive thing we get from lots of rain! Both of my local stores sell intimates - you should ask about it next time you go in. Maybe they are hidden away in a corner somewhere.

    Betty Ray - Thank you! Isn't Talus such a sweetie?

    Elizabeth - Thanks:)

    JG - The black version was really pretty too. I'm sure you can find a nice substitution!

    Kelly - Thanks!

    Kimmie - Thank you! Yes, a polka-dot peek indeed!

    Lisa (RTS) - Thanks! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

    LC - Thanks! I was lucky enough to find this lone cardigan in my store months after it sold out!

    Lisa - Yep, I got it:) Just replied!

  14. that's so cute! love the polka pop! =)

  15. Oh wow, that slip with that dress go perfectly together! I love them!

    That picture of Talus is indeed too cute not to share! I've been trying to convince Hubby to get a dog, I think I need to show him this pic!

  16. Perfect combination in your outfit! I should track down a frilly slip I think. Talus is too adorable, thanks for sharing the picture :)

  17. The slip is so much fun to play with, isn't it? Love you Dansko shoes, they look super comfortable!

  18. Fashioneggpplant - Thanks:)

    Clara - Thank you! I hope you get a dog soon! They are so fun, loving, sweet, etc. (a lot of work as well, but so worth it:).

    Jess - Thanks! I have definitely enjoyed the slip - it can add a lot to an otherwise boring outfit. Let me know if you find a good one! Isn't Talus such a cutie?

    Inmark - Yes, it is so fun! The Dansko's are super comfy. I have to wear them quite a bit right now because of a foot injury. I miss all of my pretty heels, but I will get to wear them all soon enough!

  19. I love your slip! Plus I completely agree, the pic of Talus is too cute to pass up! Where did you get the belt? Is that Anthro too? I really like your look!

  20. Minnesota Maven - Thanks! Yes, the belt is from anthro:) It's the Snakebite belt.
