I'm so excited for today's fashion post because I not only get to show you this gorgeous floral maxi dress I wore in Savannah and for Mother's Day, but I am also co-hosting with Cheryl from Northwest Mountain Living & Style!
This is the first maxi dress I have ever purchased. I've tried maxi skirts before, but I never liked them on me. I did not think they looked good because they covered up the thinnest part of my body (my legs) and they chopped me in half making me appear shorter and wider. Maxi dresses do just the opposite, they elongate the figure because it's all one piece; you actually look taller in them! As for covering up my legs, this dress has a sheer bottom so you can still see my legs! Win, win!
All these pictures were taken at the gorgeous home we rented in Savannah. Be sure to check Wednesdays Travel Post for a tour of the interior. I felt this dress fit the Savannah "mood" quite well, don't you think?
In this photo you can see my legs through the sheer fabric. It's much more noticeable in real life.
I paired my maxi dress with black sandals, a black straw hat, and a straw bag (all old). I wore this hat and carried this bag all week long, but no, I did not walk around Savannah in these shoes. Yikes! I wore flats or sneakers most of the week. These are for photography purposes only. I did wear these shoes with this dress on Mother's Day though. A lot less walking that day!
For jewelry I wore a red necklace, and red bracelets. I added a red belt around my waist.
I'm so excited that I decided to give maxi dresses a try. They are so pretty, feminine, yet comfortable as well. I wore my maxi dresses all day walking around Savannah and I was very cool and comfortable.
And now, for the Link Up! Here is what the lovely Cheryl is wearing this week. I just love her! She always has such a beautiful smile on her face and just radiates joy. She has a great sense of style too! I love her looks! I have always struggled finding over-fifty fashion bloggers who wear clothes I would like to wear too...Cheryl is one of the few who looks I would definitely re-create for myself. Be sure to check out her blog and follow her on all her social media links. If you'd like to follow me, you can find all of my social media links on my Contact Page.
Have a Great Day! Amy
