Tie Dye Maxi

I wore this outfit to dinner for our last night in Mexico. I scored this dress at a sample sale last summer and when I saw it in the dark, lonely, back corner of my closet, I decided to finally have it altered and bring it on vacation. It’s funny how maxi dresses used to be so new and exciting, and now they are such a wardrobe staple. I love the “twofer” look of this dress, defining my waist is something perpetually on my clothing “to-do” list. My mom always tells me that I should forego the oversized clothing that I prefer for more figure flattering things, because eventually gravity takes its toll. I just can’t help it, I love a baggy tee. Unfortunately, I have no idea who makes the dress, but I’ve put together a few of my favorite dye technique maxi’s below!

Without a doubt, the print direction for Spring is rooted in gingham. It’s as if all of the designers banned together and chose to upgrade the retro check to a modern, bold and sophisticated must-have for the season. Ladylike silhouettes will continue to reign supreme with pieces like midi skirts and cinched-waist detailing. I’ve already picked up the Anthropologie dress pictured above, and have my eye on a few other gingham pieces in 70’s shapes to wear with my flared jeans, another comeback that will be so fun to outfit.

Alexa Chung x AG Dress, Schutz Sandals, Anthropologie Earrings

This dress! The second I saw the Alexa Chung x AG collection, I had hearts in my eyes. The entire collection is perfectly retro with a cool and modern twist. And truthfully, anything Alexa Chung approves of, I am into- she is effortlessly beautiful and the ultimate it-girl. With an off-the-shoulder silhouette and a flouncy neckline, this dress was made for a Mexican getaway.
