A Dress for All Ages

Before I dive into this post featuring a BRAND NEW DRESS!!!, let me give a couple disclaimers:

  1. I still don’t know how to take pretty pictures. Even if I have a fancy camera. I just need to embrace it.
  2. I rarely enhance my photos, other than to adjust the exposure, etc. But, I for sure used an editor to make my legs look not quite as neon. You’re welcome.
  3. I don’t think this dress is quite as short in real life and when I’m not bunching it up on my hip. I say that only because my parents recently talked to me about “dressing my age” (feel free to roll your eyes…believe me, I did much more than that), and now they’re in my head.

With those things out of the way, I love this new dress.

It was one of my Old Navy finds, and although it’s about to go out of season, I’ll wear it another time or two before I save it for next fall. Burgundy/wine/maroon, etc. was for sure my color this winter, and I’m sincerely lacking in fall/winter dresses, so this is a perfect addition.

I’m wearing sunglasses in this picture because I thought I looked cool and they matched. But also because I cried most of my eye makeup off in church and took this right after, so, there you go.
Have you started switching to your spring clothes yet? As you can tell from the leaves and trees behind me, spring hasn’t permanently come to Nashville yet, but it’s sure trying! And as much as I like this little dress, I will not be sad to put it away for a few months, if it means warmer weather!


  1. I think it’s a great look for you Sarah Beth! The purple seems to suit you well.
    And you did fine in taking your photos. I’m no expert “shutter bug” either (I use my iPod cam for my photos). Hope to one day get a real camera. 🙂
    And I see signs of spring behind you! Yay!!

      Thanks for the encouragement, Mike! 🙂

      • You’re welcome Sarah Beth! You know, you would be great for my friends’ SIA (Style Inspired by Art) challenge. Every other week, a piece of artwork is chosen and we all put together outfits that we feel best represent the piece of artwork, either by color or by some other element found in the painting (ex. flowers; you could wear a flowery dress, etc.) We submit our photos to the blog host that chose that week’s artwork and the following week, the host will have a round-up on their blog of everyone’s photos that participated!
        I’ve been a part of it for almost 2 years now and it’s really fun.

        It would be wonderful to have you participate in our next challenge! And it just so happens that my friend, Salazar, is hosting this week’s challenge. Check out her blog here: https://14shadesofgrey.wordpress.com/

        Feel free to ask her any questions concerning the challenges as she can explain it better than me. Hope to see you there! 🙂
