I was so thrilled to see Beverly’s gorgeous photos and read about her Traveling Red Dress experience!
Here are some of her joyful pictures below and the experience in her own words:
What a fun day I had with the beautiful traveling red dress sent to me by the lovely Heidi from her Girl to Mom blog.
I woke up on Friday, July 13 (5 days after my 48th birthday) at 5:30 am so that I could put on makeup, try to tame my unruly curly hair, and then drape myself in all this red.
So then we are on the beach at 7am with many curious onlookers. I must say it was liberating so much so that I even got a few risky shots which I would never post online ; )
So after a couple of hours of playing in the white powder sand, dipping in the clear turquoise waters, and getting bit/pinched by what looked to be a small baby shrimp, we heading back to the car.
While sitting there in this brilliant red dress most just smiled and went on their way. I hear it is not the most unusual occurrence in Clearwater Beach.
Then I receive a strange look from a young mother there with her husband and two kids and it dons on me that most people are probably assuming I had a hell of a night out (one night stand) with this handsome black man and had no change of clothes!
We both had a good laugh at the thought. I then learn that not only is this day a starting point for me but also my friend.
So today was his first day out taking pictures and surpassing my physical abilities!!
He was so happy and I am so thankful I got to share the moment with him.
I then drive him home and head back to Tampa. But before I cross the bridge I realize I need gas so stop at a 7-eleven.
I think being alone in the red dress my previous boldness left me and I felt a little self-conscious. But I have to get gas so go for it and as I am standing there the store attendant comes out to change the receipt tape in the tank beside me.
