When it comes to flowy, flowery midi dresses, this BB Dakota floral dress takes home the gold. I wore it to the opera in Santa Fe last week (was that really just last week?!?!?) and then again for dinner and Olympics-watching with friends last night.
Okay, I might have been a little underdressed for the opera and a little overdressed for watching the Olympics, but, hey – when you like something, you wear it all the time!
Or am I the only one who does that?
What I’m Wearing:
Dress: BB Dakota (via Rent the Runway, similar, similar) / Boots: Lucchese
Purse: Louise et Cie / Earrings: Amrita Singh, old (similar, similar) / Ring: BaubleBar
Despite the fact that I was underdressed, I really loved wearing this BB Dakota floral dress (I’m wearing the size 6) to the opera. I paired it with my current favorite sweater… and a cozy raincoat.
I referenced this in my post on Monday, but the opera in Santa Fe was absolutely spectacular. We saw Roméo et Juliette in Santa Fe’s incredible opera house – an amphitheater on top of a cliff. Halfway through the first act, a storm broke out, providing the most amazing backdrop for an opera in the history of ever. It was particularly epic when a giant bolt of lightning (followed immediately by a deafening clap of thunder) struck just as Juliette died.
So epic, y’all. I don’t know if I can ever go back to seeing operas without lightning storms in the background. Might as well just quit while I’m ahead.
This dress was perfect for a hot-summer-day-turned-cold-stormy-night, and this look would be great for the transitional time going from summer to fall. You can wear this dress with sandals now… and then, when the seasons change and we no longer have 100°F+ days, wear it like I do above (perhaps throwing a jean jacket on top!). And I’m telling y’all: that change of seasons can’t come soon enough!
