What to Wear: A New Dress for Spring Flings

It feels so much like spring here in San Luis Obispo. The weather is moody, but warm. Birds chirping and flowers blooming all over the place. With spring comes dress season. Easter, baby showers and weddings are popping up. It's time to get a new dress!
Dress - I love the modern interpretation of a floral print on this silky Kensie dress. It's bright enough for spring but could be easily worn all year round with layers. And a steal on sale for $55.
Coat - This light lilac jacket is perfect for spring and on sale for $88.
Shoes - A classic pair of black patent leather pumps on sale for $45.
Purse - A bright pink DVF clutch on sale for $130.
Earrings - Teal and gold studs from Sam Edelman.
Nail polish - Lilac nail polish incorporates the hot color for the season.

I love this dress-- the black lends itself to wearing this for an evening out, don't you think? Any ideas for dressing this up for evening, a cool spring evening?

Love this request! Any more details on where you'd go for a fancy spring date?

Yes, it's an Irish music concert at a beautiful performance hall at the university where I work. It's a double date, and we're going out for drinks afterward at a restaurant across the street, so we'll be walking there. I have a black cardigan, of course, that I could wear, but do you have anything more interesting to suggest? Any jewelry suggestions?

Also, should mention that I wear tortoise shell glasses all the time, so I don't like earrings that are too big and blingy --- I feel like there's too much going on around my face otherwise.
