I Die For Tie Dye

Tie Dyed clothes have been around forever. Remember making them with your mom with buckets filled with colored dye, rubber bands and white clothing? The messy, easy way to get creative with clothing is cycling around again.

Living in Southern California, I also think of hippies and the Venice Boardwalk when I think of tie dye. But tie dye can be pretty and lovely if done correctly. Several brands do this well and my favorites are listed below.

Planet Blue’s in house brand, Blue Life has great options. Gypsy 05 has easy breezy dresses and Raquel Allegra makes the best gauzy tees and dresses.

Leave the dye alone and purchase your items from the sites below.

Bohemian Chic White Dress

There is nothing that screams California Girl more than a beautiful, ethereal, white bohemian dress and sun kissed hair. I will blog about the hair color at a later time.

White dresses are such an easy, breezy way to add to your wardrobe for summer, and for those of us lucky enough to live in a warm climate, are a staple to have year round. I love the deconstructed ease of a bohemian style dress and what that means to me is flowy fabrics, easy cuts, could be backless or strapless, and ready to toss on at a moments notice.

I love the look of white against tan skin, mine is most often spray tanned, but if you are a sun worshiper be sure to slather on the SPF. Gold jewelry pairs brilliantly with this, see my post “All That Glitters Is Gold” for some great ideas. Add a great flat sandal or a nice summer wedge heel and the look is ready for a pool party or the beach.

My favorite brands of white boho dresses are Line & Dot, Jen’s Pirate Booty, and Nightcap Clothing. You can actually find most of these brands at
