Style Me Saturday: Graduation Day Dress Dilemma

Reader Rebecca recently emailed me looking for some suggestions for a graduation dress. Here's her email:

"Hi! I love your site and read it all the time. You have great style! I was hoping you could help me, I am graduating from college in the May and want to look nice for dinner and the festivities afterwards. I need something comfortable to wear under the robes during the ceremony especially if it is a warm day. I am looking to wear a dress with an empire waist or similar, I love the florals and bright colors that are in season right now and some wedges! Thanks!"

Keeping in mind the empire waist and bright color/florals Rebecca mentioned, here are the suggestions I sent her (click on any photo to purchase/for more information - my personal favorite is the ruffled Aqua dress):

She also wanted some wedge suggestions, and here are the shoes I found that I thought would work (my personal favorites are the Seychelles Kick Up Your Heels sandals):
