It's Another Grey and Green Day for Me!!!

Since there is no polyvore for this outfit, I will just list the items. Polyvore does not have this dress and since there is no acceptable alternative, I was like, "whatever!"

Dress: Studio M, purchased Spring 2007 right after Rex was born, size medium.
Cardigan: Tartine by J. Crew, Light Pewter, size medium, from fall 2008.
Shoes: Allesia Peep-Toes in whatever the grey is called by J. Crew, also Fall 2008, size 9.5 (they fit fine a 1/2 size small).
Jacket: Ruffle-collar trench by J. Crew in khaki, early spring 2009, size 6.
Necklace: Tiffany's Pendant, don't remember the name, bought by Jim a long time ago.
Watch: Fossil.
Bracelet: From Macy's.

This dress is so comfy and fun. I love the empire-waist as I believe this is one of the most flattering shapes if you are a little small on top and a little big down below. ;) I have to wear a cami with it, though...this dress is very revealing otherwise.

The Allesia peep-toes...I have them root, as well...and I should have gotten them in all of the colors they offer. They are the single most comfortable heel I own. It doesn't make any sense, either. Why these shoes? They have very little padding and they have a peep-toe. In my mind those two things equal torture not walking on clouds. Interesting...I wonder if they were just designed better than other heels?

Here is the dress with the cardigan. The bracelet sleeves work here because you can actually see my bracelets!!! Yes!

Next time I think I will belt this with a contrasting belt, maybe the skinny root one that I own. That would probably look very nice!

Here it is with the trench...a bit conservative, but you know me, I am not exactly known for baring it all...the Delores dress is even a bit much for me (I know you all love it, but still, that there was a lot of skin showing)!

Can't say much more for this outfit, and the Paris catalog post and the what to wear if you are pregnant post kind of wore me out!!! Have a great day, everyone!

Super cute! Did you see the Sartorialist blog today? They are "Grey and Green" right now also!

That dress looks great on you with and without the jacket. Love the jacket too! :) I agree 100% with your comment about the shoes. I have them in root and royal but like you, wish I had them in every color now. *sigh* They really ARE the most comfy JC heels! I think maybe they have a wider toebox(?)

I love your outfit today. You have a beautiful wardrobe and I love how pull everything together with beautiful accessories and shoes.

Oh! I like this outfit. The dress is great and I know extactly what you mean about that style looking good on those of us with the "pear" shape. It just looks nice, stylish, comfortable and very "put" together. What more can you ask for?

HeidiG: I adore this trench, and from what I saw from 3PP's post this morning, they have some more at the PC J. Crew...maybe you should try it on. I think it hits at the right height on my hip, and since you are tall like me, it may have the same effect on you!!!

Sparrowsandsparkles: I have never looked at the Sartorialist, but I went over there today. :) Wow, these on the street people are very fashionable. I am glad that the color scheme I wore today is in fashion, but I suspect the way I wear clothing would never, ever be deemed "cool enough" by that guy. I mean, tights and shorts? Here in my neck of the woods, I would be LAUGHED at quite loudly...although I almost would do that to be contrarian. Heehee.

A Bigger Closet: Yes, if I can get my hands on more colors in my size, I will have to buy them. I think you are right about the wider toe box.

Thank you for commenting on my outfit!!! Coming from someone as well-put together as you means a whole lot!

Shopaholicdiva1027: Thank you so much. What a sweet thing to say. ;)

Purplesweetart: Oh, the pear shape. So lucky for us...not! :) But thank goodness for the empire-waist!!! Yay!

I will say the dress is made of some man-made fiber and it is so soft...very silky and smooth!

Suzy: Welcome! Thank you for your compliment...I am blushing!!!

Gigiofca: I have so many dresses in this shape in my closet, but when you find the right thing for your body, you just go crazy I guess. Thankfully this style never goes out of style, the prints just change!!! :)

Prefect colors, perfect shapes.. as I look at you, something light and frothy comes to mind, the whole impression is very ethereal and spring like! A-d-o-r-a-b-l-e!!

Slastena: Thank you so much. I felt spring-like that day!
