Having at least one dress in your closet that can be worn to the grocery store and then a formal event is a must…bonus points if it’s comfortable and also has pockets, like this one. And depending on your shoes and accessories, this dress easily goes from casual to formal in a blink of an eye!

I had opted for casual the day I took these photos. I had to run some errands and wasn’t feeling the greatest, so I wore it sans a belt and with some comfy sandals. This dress is so comfortable, and I love that it’s machine washable. Oh, and it has POCKETS. Plus, with a cute belt and a pair of heels, this dress can have a completely different appearance.

This dress is another one that was made by Erin, the owner of Clema W. I had featured an identical version of this dress, but with a lemon print, a while back. (Click here to see it.) I loved it so much I had bought it this cute cat and bird print as well!

Erin makes all of her dresses right in Oregon. And Erin named her business “Clema W.” after her amazing grandmother, Clema W., who taught her so much in life and the sewing room. I can just feel that these dresses are made with love.

Needless to say, this won’t be the last time I order from Clema W. Dresses that can be worn for any occasion with just a few tweaks to the accessories are an absolute must in my closet.

    Oh my goodness! The print on this is so darling. I love novelty prints in classic silhouettes like this because it makes the garment so wearable, but there’s still this whimsical wink that makes it special. Love how you dressed it up with pearls for retro charm.
