Granny Shades by the Water

See? I really did add more dresses to my wardrobe! A few weeks ago, Old Navy was having an $8 sale on dresses and this is one of the three I snagged. I don’t normally go for brighter colors but I’m glad I jumped on this one. It’s one of the more flattering dresses I now own! It also has adjustable straps. Very cool.

I was entirely too hot for anything other than the thinnest dress imaginable. We took the water taxi over to Charleston and walked around a bit to get a feel for the town. When I tell you that my entire body was covered in sweat, I mean my entire body. Okay? 

dress: Old Navy, booties, earrings: Forever21, sunnies: thrifted

I’m eternally grateful to my past self for buying these flat booties. They’re pretty masculine and I love them. They’re also fuede*. Have you ever been to Charleston? I’d love to go back with a much smaller group and explore the city more and learn all its history. What were your favorite places?

*fuede: [fwaid] fake suede.

  • Ummm teach me your photo skills please. Gorgeous.

  • As a fellow redhead, I totally get the concern about brighter colors. I’ve been trying to be less afraid of pinks and reds, though. This dress looks so comfy and cute!

    • Yas! I once saw Julianne Moore wearing all red (I think it was in that episode of 30 Rock where she’s dating Jack?) and I was like, “If Julianne Moore can do it, so can I.” And I never looked back, haha.
