It's hard to tell from the pictures, but the material of this dress is a little more formal - it's a lovely cotton/silk blend that lays really nicely and is lovely to the touch. Unfortunately, this has meant that I've struggled with how to dress it down a bit. Finally, it dawned on me - stick some stripes under it, duh. Officially casualized.

Also, these pictures were taken on our very street. Is spring in DC not glorious?
