Resort Style: Red, Strapless Maxi Dress


It was just before five o’clock on a Saturday afternoon when I saw Stephanie Eckert with her husband and little boy at Waterside Shops in Naples, Florida.  She told me they were from Germany, near Munich, and on a four-week vacation, leaving the following Monday.

I noticed her initially, of course, because of the striking color of her long, flowing, maxi dress.  The same red color adorned her finger and toenails, and her sandals.

What I found most captivating, though, was how she had opted to under-style what could otherwise feel like a formal dress.  She wore no makeup except for red lipstick.  She pulled her thick main of dark hair into a simple, high ponytail.   As for jewelry, she wore only her wedding rings, a bracelet, and pearls in her ears.

Such a pretty example of modern, feminine resort style. ~Janis Lyn Johnson
