    Default I Bought a Dress and It Needs Something

    I bought this dress from Old Navy; I wear a 1X and probably need cuter sandals to go with it (my Clarks should be fine for just bumming around, but I think it kinda wants red or coral wedges for fancier times.)

    Here is a terrible picture of me trying it on so I could decide whether or not I'm keeping it (I am.)

    Since it's still cool here at night, I was thinking about a lightweight denim jacket to wear with it (and my other shorter dresses) but I'm not sure what I should be looking at, other than a medium wash or white (which scares me, but I am trying to get out of my comfort zone.)

    Help?

    I can't see your photo, the link takes me to a log in for tinkercad. Did you buy the yellow floral dress? It looks really cute! I'd pair it with a soft denim jacket (any wash) and white sneakers. Or brown sandals. Or metallic sandals. I wouldn't pair that dress with red or orange.

    Yes, I bought the yellow dress.

    I fixed the link; I was messing with a Girl Scout project in TinkerCad earlier and didn't realize I hadn't copied my photo link.

    Very cute.
    I wouldn't do white. I think a denim jacket or a cardigan would be good. for cardigans- https://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/produ...p-page-content

    I think a denim jacket would work well. Any wash would be fine.

    Cute! I would do a denim jacket and either white Superga shoes, flip flops or neutral wedges (brown, metallic etc) I live south enough that I wear lots of summer dresses with nice-ish flip flops. Super comfy.

    Yes, a lightweight denim jacket, I'd go a lighter wash as well.

    Like others said a neutral wedge sandal (slip on/or wedge flip flop) or white sneakers, but I"d do a sandal, I find sneakers don't do me any justice in a dress, I need a bit of a heel or less clunky footwear.

    Look for a less stiff denim (so avoid Old Navy, theirs are very stiff). Maybe this color? https://www.maurices.com/product/tra...E&gclsrc=aw.ds

    ...
    I'm looking at a few options at Torrid for a jacket. I haven't owned a denim jacket that I wore regularly since ... 1989.

    While I gravitate towards dark wash for jeans, I was thinking a medium or even light wash would be best for this.
