Loving: Cocktails in Blue

Blue Cocktail Dress

dress: Julie Dillon, belt: Nordstrom, shoes: Zara, clutch: Rebecca Minkoff MAC crossbody, bracelet watch: Anne Klein.

This is one of my favorite shades of blue, so I was happy to see it on the trend forecast for this year and then post about it on Spring Trend: A Sea of Blue. When my husband told me we were going to a business event with cocktail attire, I knew this dress would fit the bill and was happy to have snagged it on sale a few months back. I also love this clutch, even though it’s a bit big for evening, because of its anthracite metallic sheen. The slight glimmer gives it an after-hours feel. The mid-heel, patent nude wedges are still available over at Zara for a song ($49, also in black) and measure in at only 3″, with a 1″ wedge. They are so easy to walk in, which I appreciate for a business function. I’m thinking these wedges would also be great for an outdoor wedding or any lawn party.

I’m linking up on Monday Mingle (at Momtrends) and Visible Monday (at Not Dead Yet) today, so be sure to head over and check them out.
