Red Maxi By The Lake

As you know from my previous post (read here), the Mr. & I spent a couple of days in Lake Tahoe last week. When we first saw how gorgeous the sunset was by the lake, we made sure to catch it one last time.

Lake Tahoe is situated on the California and Nevada border, and because the first time we watched it from California side, we decided to check what the Nevada side has to offer. Even though there only 5 mins away, the Nevada Beach was significantly less crowded than the California side.

As we were stuffed from lunch, we kept the picnic simple. Sparkling wine and some freshly cut fruits, a favorite combo of mine.

We nested underneath a huge pine tree, on a picnic table overlooking one of the most beautiful views you could ever wish for. Even the most expensive restaurants with the most amazing views can’t quite rival this one. Mountains covered in pines on one side and a glittering lake on the other.

For this intimate afternoon, I decided to wear an old strapless red maxi dress that I had in my closet for years. Even though it’s an old buy, every summer I wear it a few times and every summer it seems that it’s still on trend.

I absolutely love the rich red color of red maxi. It’s extremely vibrant and deep, which works great with my summer tan.

I’m a big fan of sweetheart neckline, especially on strapless dresses. It’s much more faltering than straight neckline exceptionally for smaller chested ladies.

 

 

We sipped our glasses to the last drop as we watched the sun set behind the tall mountains. The Lake, reflecting all the beautiful colors of the sunset, looked like lava. The tide was coming in and the air was getting colder. We waited until the last ray of light disappeared in the sky before leaving.

Here’s some of my favorite red summer maxi dresses:

Save: River Island, Asos, Free People, Wayf

Splurge: Alice & Olivia, The Jetset Dairies, Karina Grimaldi, Paul & Joe

I wish you all a great weekend! Always remember to be kind to one another 🙂

XoXo,

Tamara

    You look absolutely GORGEOUS, Tamara! I love this red maxi dress, it’s so romantic and daring, such a great choice for a romantic beach date with the love! It’s good to know that the Nevada side of the beach is less crowded than the Cali, so clever of you guys to try it out, even if it was only 5 minutes away, still such a difference! Thanks so much for sharing these gorgeous photos, the view is breathtaking and so are you, girlie! Have a very happy weekend!

    Red looks beautiful on you! I totally agree about sweetheart necklines – so feminine and timeless. Haven’t gotten to Tahoe so that needs to change ASAP and sipping bubbles waterside is always the perfect pairing! x Shannon

    You always have such beautiful photos girl! Loving that red dress on you, it’s definitely your color! I envision that late 80s/ early 90s “Lady in Red” song playing in the background =P

    I’ve never thought of wearing maxi dress in the colour red – though you’ve totally changed my mind 🙂 You look so gorgeous, especially in the final photo splashing into the water; wow! An utterly beautiful post…
