Tie-dye That’s To Die For

There’s something about tie-dye that makes me feel pretty dang bad-ass. Okay, fine, maybe flower child meets rock & roll is a more accurate depiction. Because let’s face it, I’m not hardcore no matter how much tie-dye you plaster on me.

A good neutral tie-dye screams edgy, free-spirited, California surfer babe– which is kinda awesome and right up my alley.

My absolute favorite muscle tank is a black and cream tie-dye number from Urban Outfitters, which also happens to be my go-to top to tuck in to a pair of vintage cut-offs. Or to wear with yoga pants for a lazy Netflix binge, which happens more often than I’d like to admit, but whatever.

You can imagine my excitement when I found said tank in maxi-dress form at a local boutique, Redemption California. Hallelujah. This boutique is unique in that all of their products are made by local artists and designers in California. So, you know, it’s kinda like a gold-mine for all of you beach babes and desert lovers out there looking for authentic California goodies.

This maxi dress from Redemption is loose-fitting, buttery-soft and has all the same vibes as my beloved tank. Score.

I paired it with black lace-up sandals, a cool, chunky necklace, a leather wrap bracelet to match my kicks, way too many rings and a loose fishtail braid.

You can tie the bottom in a knot for a fun, hi-low effect, or leave it long and flowy. Sometimes, if you’re lucky (and buy the dress a size too big), the sleeves will fall in to a baggy, natural, off-the-shoulder style. In which case I suggest wearing a strappy-bralette underneath.
