How I've worn the dress before: here.
I woke up expecting to take my outfit photos in the afternoon because of the wet, rainy morning predictions. So imagine my surprise when I woke up to a brilliant sunrise -- complete with fiery reds and pinks -- truly a rosy-fingered dawn to be marveled. So, feeling that inspiration, I tried to capture all of those colors and happily grabbed things in my closet that matched. I quickly headed out to my photo spot on the hiking trail.
When I got there, the sky was a completely different story. It was muggy, greyish-blue and I felt quite silly for even trying to do a sartorial interpretation of it.
Lesson learned: Dress for the weather, but don't try to dress like the sky. It will almost certainly change on you.
