I’m a big fan of velvet. And even though it’s not traditionally appropriate for D.C summers, I feel as though this easy t-shirt dress just might make the cut.

We’ve had a couple of really warm days here in Washington D.C I just had to wear something with a spring vibe. I actually get a lot of use from this dress year round, but it really is beautiful in the springtime. Of course it’s still January, but a girl can dream right?

I love the material of this dress, which is a super light silk cotton mix. It feels incredibly soft against my skin, and so comfortable, I don’t feel constricted in any movement. The sleeves are of course very fun, and sleeves are so in right now. It’s not exactly bell sleeves, but I love how willowy there are. And then there’s the print. I am a sucker for a good print, and I think this one is just bold enough to stand on it’s own but doesn’t overpower.

And that’s really key when pairing this dress with other pieces. It should stand as a stand alone piece, but shoes, outerwear, and accessories can still be interesting without being out of place I decided to go with black lace-up boots and my trusty leather jacket.

Happy Friday to everyone! Hope you all have fun plans for the upcoming weekend!
