OOTD: More Polka Dots Please (& Some Big News)

I decided to pair my In A Twinkling Dress, which has faint polka dots all over it, with more polka dots! And since I love lavender and grey together the shoes and belt were an easy choice. Here's what I wore to church yesterday...

Details...
Anthropologie In A Twinkling Dress
Target Merona Polka Dot Cardigan, similar here
Anthropologie Ruffled Cincher, similar here
Anthropologie Anticipation Heels
Forever 21 Floral Print Tights
Necklaces and Earrings from Etsy

And my big exciting news is (drum roll please...)

I am moving to Portland, OR! Husband got a new job there and I'm super excited to once again live in the Pacific Northwest (we used to live in Seattle and loved it). So this Thursday we'll be heading due north and saying goodbye to LA. I am so excited! So my posting and commenting will be a little sporadic until we find a place and get settled in (which may take awhile). I've only been to Portland a few times so if any of you live there or have visited and have any tips or info I'd love to hear from you! One thing I know.... they have an Anthropologie (which makes me a happy girl! ;)

What big news! My husband has a final job interview in Vancouver WA the end of this week. I looked up three stores locations--Trader Joes, Whole Foods and Anthropologie. I love your outfit.

Superb outfit as always! :) Hope the move goes well, do you have people helping you move? That always helps!
*sniff* Sniff* Sadly, there is no Anthroplogie stores in Montana, maybe WA... :( Alas, I must admire their clothes from afar...

That is really exciting news! Good Luck moving! I hope you find a place quickly and get all settled. Love your church outfit! That is the best dress ever. I think it will make a great Christmas dress. I'm planning to wear mine with my red field game cardi for Christmas. I'm already talking about Christmas. Can you tell I'm excited!? Good luck again with the move. I hope everything goes smoothly for you and your family.

I have read your blog for a number of months now, yet never have commented. We live just south of Portland in the suburbs (Wilsonville) and love it here.
Yes, we do have not one, but two Anthros!
Congrats on the new job and upcoming move.
