Dress Week: Royal Blue Sleeveless Silky Dress.

Welcome to a second week worthy of Pretty AND New Dresses. Check out the first week of New Dresses, from earlier this month. Oh and Happy Monday - the last one of July!!

My first Dress this week is this little Royal Blue Silky number that my husband purchased for me. Before last Summer I only had one Royal Blue/Cobalt Dress and it was a Sweater Dress. This is my Summery one and I also have a Wrap Dress with Long Sleeves in these shades of Vivid Blue, now. This dress is in a light, silk-blend material that doesn't wrinkle easily and of course I love the exposed gold zipper in the front. It's a Sexy+Sophisticated piece. My husband did well, no? My first time wearing this Dress, was for a double date. Once again I reached for my Lace Bow Pumps which I have worn a lot for Date Night Outfits. They are Girly, Elegant and go with everything and I love that their heels aren't crazy tall. A matching Black Clutch, Cherry Red Lipstick, some Fun Bracelets and a Colorful Statement Necklace - one of my favorites - and I was good to go. How do you like how I styled this Dress for a Date Night? Do you own a Cobalt Dress for the Summer?
