Well, I hope you all enjoyed the weekend. Today I am wearing a gold maxi dress styled for summer with additional gold pieces and my straw clutch. I love the color mustard and think I will be looking for some pieces for Fall of this color. Maxi dresses are easy to wear, easy to style.
We had a great time at Raylen Vineyard’s Full Moon Festival over the weekend. This vineyard is one of our favorites to visit as it is an hour away and they are very dog friendly. And yes, they have a wide selection of tasty wines. NC can get stereotyped into having more of the sweet wines, aka Scuppernog, and Muscadine . I love dry red wines and they have several to choose from. Puppies enjoyed the day, as did my hubby, getting his oyster plate from the Oyster bar they have there. Good times!
We also got our passport pictures and applications in at a Charlotte location. I just hate that you can’t smile for your driver’s liscence of passport photo. I did for my driver’s liscense and got away with it. When i tried to smile my normal “fashion blogger’ smile, I was told not to smile “that much”. So instead of not smiling, I smiled halfheartedly, kind of a 1/3 of a smile, which just ended up looking like I was scared or constipated. One of the other. Not the most flattering pic, but who will see? hehe. Anyhow, it will come in about 4 weeks, so at least we got that done.
I think I may own a total of 4 maxi dresses. Being 5 foot 9, you would think I would gravitate towards them. Well, I did with this particular dress as I loved the warm mustard color. I added my woven gold espadrilles by Franco Sarto I decided to try something new and took one of my belts from another dress, made it into a neck scarf as I loved the green, yellow and orange in the silky material.
There’s nothing like the warm colors of the fiery summer sun to get you in a summertime mood! These are also great fall colors and you could transition this dress with a long cardigan, boots or booties for Fall.
