There is something about tea length dresses that just feel fancy, the way they swish around the mid calf and the way the fabric drapes. This pretty light blue and navy dress is a recent addition to my wardrobe and it was only after looking this dress up online to link to that I realized Ann Taylor calls it a midi dress. I think I like tea length better. While in Florida I wanted to take a few pictures of this outfit before the family headed out to dinner but instead of just standing still I insisted on walking up and sown the sidewalk in this dress because it just has such great movement when it swishes.
And one funny part about taking photos in front of your parents house? Sometimes your photoshoots are interrupted by friendly neighbors asking what on Earth you are doing and you just have to wave as they slowly drive by!
