i wore this outfit on a casual saturday in redlands visiting my family for the easter weekend. this lightweight velvet dress paired with a crisp white t-shirt felt so perfectly springy as it swished around my knees on an afternoon stroll around town. after some deliberation about what shoes to wear, i opted for the casual comfort of my white birkenstocks (which i’ve been wearing almost every day lately). but i think a simple pair of black flats and a little swipe of lipstick would make this look perfectly appropriate for a date night as well. in fact, i’ll probably wear it just like that the next time i actually get a chance to go out!
