Ageless Style is a monthly style challenge and link up for women "over a certain age". Each month we pick a different theme and style an outfit based on that theme.
In honor of Earth Day this month, Cammi picked the theme "Earth Tones". Earth tones are browns, tans, umber, brick red, terra cotta, yellow orchre, warm greys, shades of green, brown oranges, burnt siennas, and grey blues. They are colors found in nature.
For this challenge, I decided to wear this dark Burgundy or brick red dress that I received as a Christmas present from my son.
Now I know certain colors can appear different on everyone's computer screen or phone, especially anything in the red family, but trust me, this dress is a deep, dark Burgundy. In this photo shoot when I'm facing the sun, the dress appears brighter, but when I turn away from the sun, I feel the true color is shown.
I styled my dress with neutrals, choosing a neutral bag and shoes.
I love these type of shoes for spring. They are partially open revealing just a bit of toe and ankle, yet the foot is not fully exposed as it would be in a real sandal. They provide the perfect coverage for the cooler weather.
For jewelry I chose red, black and muted silver. Burgundy lipstick completed the look.
My dress was on my Amazon wish list. I can't seem to find it on line now since it was so long ago, but I think THIS DRESS, in a different color, is very similar. The only thing different is the sleeves.
I was so pleased when I tried on this dress. You never know what you are going to get sometimes when you order clothes from Amazon. But I love this dress! It's very comfortable, and I like all the coverage. The length is perfect, and I really like the long sleeves. I will probably wear it once in the cool of spring and then again in the fall. I think it will be fun to accessorize this dress for fall!
And now, be sure to check out the Earth Tone outfits of the other ladies and then link up with us below!
Have A Great Day! Amy
