I took the opportunity to have pics taken on the porch at the Air B&B I stayed in, The Hays House. It makes a great backdrop for fashion. I just love the black and white damask print in this long maxi dress and it’s perfect for a beach vacation. It’s almost an empire style dress, the waistline is not true waist, but slightly above, but I think it’s very flattering.
The fabric on the bottom is sort of a jersey knit feel (rayon and spandex), very soft and flowy and the top fabric is like a stretchy soft cotton. I felt so good in this dress! This Hollis Tank maxi dress is available in a few other colors, so check it out if you like this one. I love the fit, I got this one in Small.
This dress could be worn for Fall and beyond with a cute jacket on top.
The good news is that that ones that are left are marked down on sale! But, you can’t use my coupon code on the sale items, sorry.
We went to Capt. Anderson’s that night for dinner and I took more pics by the docks. Great to get outside in a new location to take my fashion pics. You can barely see my shoes here, but I took shot of them for you.
They are flat slip on sandals in white and gold by Guess (Juliann style) with a cork sole. I picked them up earlier this summer from DSW, but it looks like they are sold out online now.
I got a pedicure before Haven and for the beach and loved this bright orange/coral shade that I picked out, called Sunset by Savina. Liked it so much I ordered it for myself, from this site. It sort of glows out on the beach, but a perfect summer shade.
My handsome man, Mark, looked equally good in his black and white shorts and linen shirt. I just love this picture! We have a few similar colors that we wear and it’s fun to color coordinate, although we didn’t plan this one in advance, it just happened. His linen shirt is from Ocean & Coast line at Belk, if you’re interested. He has bought several of these linen shirts for summer and they look so good on. He gets lots of compliments on them too.
The Indigo wash Kennesaw top is still available in case you missed it when I posted earlier. I love this top and am honored that she had it made for me.
I really enjoy working with Glamour Farms and having them at Haven this year was extra fun. They get in new clothes all the time, so be sure and check back often for more items. This dress will be a favorite of mine for sure!

Rhoda,your clothes are awesome.Love all you do! But,don’t you have any friends that are a little “larger”,would like to see something for us girls! Love you!
Hey, Pat, yes I do have a friend, Vicki, who is a little larger and I have featured her several times on my blog. I do get it, that I’m not the average size, but hopefully you all can take my ideas and apply them to larger clothing options. Glamour Farms offers curvy and plus sizes as well.
Rhoda, you are absolutely adorable. I just love your blog! I especially love when you feature your parents! So happy you were able to get to take some time off and enjoy the beach!
Whoa-Rhoda!! You look absolutely gorgeous in that last fashion show shot taken at Haven. Like, knock-out beautiful. If I had shoulders like that I would show them off every chance I could-ha! 🙂 I’m so happy for you and all the ways the Lord is bless you.
Thank you, Sofia! I’m amazed too at the Lord’s blessings every single day. He has truly restored me in so many ways.
I have been following your blog for years, and it’s one of my favorites, and have never commented before this, but whatever you have had done or are doing, or whatever, you look amazing! You have always been beautiful inside and out, as are all the women in your family – every generation included, but something is different…and it shows! in a fabulous way! (you look years younger in that last photo). Love it!
HI, Mandy, thanks for finally coming out with a comment! I love that. I haven’t really done anything different, but I do feel really good right now, with hair and makeup and clothes. I think the last 5 years of going through hard times and finding myself again has given me a boost of confidence. I’ve always loved fashion and makeup and I think age gives us more confidence sometimes to be who we are. It also helps that I’m in love, that’s a big boost!! Love is a wonderful thing! 🙂
I’ve been following your blog Rhoda since you were featured on Dixie Delights and I just love your style! I’m on a tight budget & just adore your budget friendly decor style & your choice of cloths always looks comfy and pulled together. Cheers from one GA Peach to another 🙂
Thank you, Lindsey, I’m so glad you found me & thanks for letting me know where you found me. Amanda is a sweetheart!

Melesa Garrison says
First of all, you and Mark look so darn cute together! I have a brother named Mark and he is one of the greatest guys I know. I love the dress. Thanks for sharing!
Patti Osmus says
You have love written all over your face! It’s such a good feeling, isn’t it?
You look fabulous Rhoda! I grew up in the Appalachicola area. I spent many summer days in the bay and Beach areas there. Captain Andersons is a fond memory for me . Almost 28 years ago (in Nov) my husband and I got married and went to PC for a quick weekend trip . We had a feast at Captain Andersons and a bottle of champagne that a friend had given us! We didn’t go on a honeymoon then because my husband was active duty Army and had to report to Ft Rucker, AL the following Monday for flight training-
We are STILL waiting to go on a honeymoon all these years later- but I will confess that most days feel like I’m still in the honeymoon phase and I am one lucky, lucky girl!
Terie, what a great story, thanks for sharing! Hope you get that honeymoon,but sounds like you are very happy!
Patricia Wilson says
Rhoda, love the B&W maxi dress, the white jeans & so pretty & feminine off-the-shoulder top. Your pics are lovely, including the one with your beau. I just saw an add for a new cosmetic line begun by a gorgeous woman (of a certain age) with long silver hair who became a model at age 60. I’m surprised if you haven’t been approached by a modeling agency as well. You are so very beautifully photogenic.
Thank you so much Patricia! I know the model you are talking about. Haven’t gotten that call yet, but I would certainly be open to it, I think it would be fun.
Stacey Keeling says
Rhoda, you are gorgeous in this dress and your happiness shines through. 🙂
So pretty and I love the top in the picture of you from Haven!!
Just discovered your blog while searching for interior photos of Ruby’s house (Merveille Vivante). I am looking forward to sharing your fashion posts with my mom- who thinks that fashion is only for the under 40 set. You look so beautiful and glamorous. It makes me excited to get older, knowing I can gain in wisdom AND beauty!
Hi, Victoria, thank you for stopping by, so glad you found me! I definitely believe in staying fashionable with age.
Well, I’m older and shorter than you but a lot of your clothing ideas work for me. I also look at getyourprettyon.com, no home ideas that I’ve seen and she’s 30 something but her ideas work also. I just adapt and use the ideas you two give me. I feel so silly now thinking that white jeans were daring, but for me they were!!! Now I wear them all the time. Ok I’m a fan and thank you.
Thank you, Nancy, so glad you like the ideas I share on fashion. Yay on the white jeans, love them!
Seeing you and Mark so happy together reminds me of the wonderful song “So Happy Together” by the Turtles…You deserve this joy!
Thank you, Martine, we are very happy together. I totally remember that song, we are baby boomer children after all!
Cute clothes! I love the couple picture of you & Mark – glad to see you so happy! You always look amazing! I looked back on your blog to find out what kind of polish you recommended not long ago the other day. I think it was Gel’aze. My sensational nail polish was chipping & in the summer I don’t want complicated long manicures. So am trying that….thanks for posting all your helpful info!
