Maxi Dress in Rio

Maxi Dress in Rio

I am beyond excited to share this gorgeous post with you! Why? Well, part of my family and I spent the Christmas holiday  in Brazil (still here). For our Brazilian holiday, we spent the first 3 days in Rio de Janeiro. I knew before I got here that I wanted to do a photo shoot at Parque Lage. Believe it or not, it was at the top of my list. As we were headed to our first tourist destination, our tour guide pointed out Parque Lage and told us next to it was Rio’s Botanical Garden. George’s daughter (who LOVES photo shoots as much as I do) and I were floored at the beauty. I mean, we were in an SUV whizzing on by and were in awe of the beauty! So even though Parque Lage was our number one priority, The Botanical Garden was a close second.

As I was getting dressed for this photo shoot, I realized I didn’t try my dress on before leaving Atlanta. Clothes ALWAYS fit me sort of weird…which is why I normally have to try EVERYTHING thing on. I’m not one of those lucky people who can grab and and go. Whenever I order items online, it’s touch and go for me. So luckily, this dress fit almost perfectly. The top of this dress was a bit large…which was fine with me because usually it’s opposite! 🙂

So you will have to forgive me for ALL of the pictures I have posted here today. The photos were so beautiful, it was simply too hard to narrow it down to the 10-12 photos I normally post.

Also, I am hoping to have the first part of my Rio vacation ready by next week.

      The ‘detailing’ is actually a necklace! When I first put it on, to me it looked like it was made into the neckline! Thank you!!!
