OOTD: Sapphire Stunner (& My Day at the Huntington Library & Botanical Gardens!)

Today's Outfit of the Day centers around a navy lace dress, which I styled two different ways. Up first is the evening look, in which I paired the dress with bow tights, silver jewelry, and dark brown leather riding boots. The day look features the dress paired with light, stone colored boots
I've also included a series of photos at the end of my recent visit to the beautiful botanical gardens of the Huntington Library in San Marino, CA! :)

By now, you must all know of my fervent adoration of all things lace! I fell in love with the dark sapphire color of this dress though. What can I say? Jewel-tones really bring out my skin tone.
I paired the dress with black bow tights, a gray bow belt, and dark brown leather riding boots.
I really appreciate that this dress is fully lined (save for the sleeves) because it keeps me from having to layer when it's warmer out. I also enjoy the 3/4 sleeves.
For jewelry, I'm wearing a fringe-type silver statement necklace, black and silver crystal bracelet, my rose gold Michale Kors watch, and a rhinestone circle ring.

 I'm more willing to wear dramatic makeup in the evening and took full advantage of the darker dress to play with some navy shades on the lids. I used the Stila In the Garden palette and focused gold on the center of the lid and smoked it out with navy and purple shadows.
