Tie-Dye Blues

Dress – Marshall’s (gift); Sandals – Payless; Sunglasses – Walgreen’s; Purse – hand-me-down.

I feel like a tie-dye maxi dress can easily come across as hippie-dippy. And maybe it did. But whatever, I got this dress in the mail from my momma, and I wanted to wear it out and about. It’s not my first maxi dress, but it’s the first to appear on the blog (go figure).

I tried to keep the dress too bohemian by skimping on the accessories and punching up the color quotient with this yellow bag and blue sunglasses. The dress is super comfy (even if it did leave dye on my hands and bag), but I have to admit I’m still considering altering it. I find the length just a bit awkward for a maxi dress, so maybe I can just remove a couple of the tiers. Thoughts?

I wore this out on Monday when I spent the day on the Upper West Side with my friend Isabela. We had a nice, long lunch at Alice’s Tea Cup and then hid from the rain and humidity in the American Museum of Natural History. Not too shabby for the start of the week.
