As a side note, I really like how Bloomingdale’s has styled this with a nude shoe. It would be really tempting to pick up one of the bright colors in the floral and carry it over to your sandal. I think the nude is unexpected and keeps it from getting too cutesy or matchy-matchy. Noted.
I’ve walked past this silk Theory dress (orig. $315.00, now $236.25 at Bloomingdales.com) at Belk in Crabtree Valley Mall here in Raleigh several times and it never fails to make me stop and stare. I don’t really know what it is about that’s so appealing to me. I do love the navy base color and the pop of floral on the bottom half. Plus, it looks so comfortable with the empire waist.
