Help me accessorise this dress

I've bought this dress to wear at the races early next month but have no idea what to do with it accessory wise. I'm really starting to panic now and could do with some opinions on what will go. I am shit at this kind of thing.

Can anyone help with shoes, bag, nails - what colours should I be looking for? I'm blonde with blue eyes and pale freckly skin.

Beautiful colour!

I'd use an opal for inspiration. Silvery greens or soft aqua shades, even pale pearly coral. Nothing too bold so as not to overpower the dress.

These sorts of colours...

This sort of thing maybe??

Wow those shoes are amazing! I love the colour of the dress but was worried black shoes etc would make it look v dull. Something like that would be perfect. Now where to find???

Thanks Diggum smile

Difficult to find. Do a search for iridescent heels or shoes and you might find something. Only ones I can find at a glance are expensive!

Orange or yellow would like nice with that blue and keep it colorful and breezy!
