I have had this dress forever, and I love it. I’m never really sure how to wear it because it’s so bold, but I will bring it out for the occasional outing.
I went through a big hippie stage in high school right after I was in a production of Hair (a very, very toned down production, for those of you who know the show). I wore maxi skirts and always had a small braid hidden somewhere in my hair. A little bit of that phase has always stuck with me, though I am glad to have removed the patchwork blouses from my wardrobe…. This dress makes me feel comfortable but also a little fancy and feminine, and that’s what dresses are supposed to do, right?
I also would be remiss if I didn’t mention the beautiful location where these pictures were taken; Wormsloe Historic Site. This is one of the most iconic spots in Savannah, and I live just a short drive from it. The oak trees and spanish moss are quintessential low-country, and the scenery is even more stunning in person. If you are ever in the Savannah area, you have to take a pit stop at Wormsloe.
