I love a versatile dress. While I do have those few items in my closet that can only be worn for certain occasions, I am usually drawn to pieces that can be great for the day and then transitioned easily to evening. I wore this dress recently while doing some sightseeing and then went right to dinner after we were done. My Sophie Hulme crossbody bag is perfect for that because I can take the strap off and it becomes a clutch! For many years in my early twenties, I believed dresses were only for “going somewhere” and would feel awkward wearing one for casual outings. But over the years I find them much more comfortable than jeans or pants and easy to dress down with the right accessories. Flats or sandals can make almost any outfit more daytime appropriate, and it saves my feet from pain and suffering. LOL Sadly this dress is going fast in this color combination, but there are still a good number of sizes left in the blue/white version. And almost every size is still available in the shirt version which is just as cute!
