I can totally see myself going to a play date wearing this dress by itself with my Converse slip-ons on a sunny spring/summer day (If such a day ever makes an appearance here in Michigan!). But I can also see myself swapping the slip-ons with a pair of heels and adding a jacket and accessories for a date night look.

Since temperatures are still in the 40s here in Michigan, I opted to wear it as a tunic with capri leggings, which I felt worked out just fine. As a mom on the go, I always look for versatile pieces that can be worn in multiple ways and this dress definitely fits the bill.
