Great utility piece!
This dress verges on being smart with the collar fully buttoned up, but also very comfy and practical. (thank you for the pockets! womans-wear needs more pockets!) I like the pencil holder detail in the top pocket (great for work surveys). Its easy to cycle in too. The fabric is soft but weighty which so far for a winter wear its keeping me warm, the button-able cuffs help to keep the drafts out, but i expect it will work for summer too with the sleeves rolled up and with its loose fit.
