Hello, friends! Hope your Tuesday is going well, and that your work or school week is chugging along at a tolerable pace lol. To brighten your day, I’d like to bring you a Fair OOTD from Darn Good Yarn. This OOTD features one of the most boho, chill items so far: a purple tie dye maxi dress. This could totally be for throwing over a swimsuit at the beach, taking along to a music festival or camping trip, or just for a chill day on your patio.

I personally love the colour of this maxi dress, however, I do have to say that it is best paired with a belt, probably one that’s a bit sturdier than the one I used. I kept having to re-tie this belt because it’s sort of flimsy, and this dress is actually a bit heavy because of all the fabric (on account of it being a long maxi dress).  If you were just wearing this as a beach cover up, maybe the belt wouldn’t matter… but it’s pretty much straight down, so to wear it out and about you’d likely want a belt. Or not, whatever floats your boat. Just be aware that you need something a little sturdier than what’s pictured here!

One thing I really enjoy about this dress is the little tassels on the sleeves. I feel like it adds a little something interesting to this dress! Is there something that adds a special touch to your favourite outfits? I’d love to know, so share below!

Random side note: it. was. so. hot. when we were shooting this. Even though we went down to the water (as usual) where you would expect it to be cooler, it was sweltering. I’m trying to act cool and collected in these photos but TRRUUUUST me, it was taking a considerable amount of effort not to just melt right into the dock, never to return to my regular life. Ha. Ha…….

HOWEVER, in a bid to remain honest and transparent, please observe the most genuine photo from this shoot below. Dress is still looking rad. Me, not so much LOL.

  1. Laughing at the funny face you are making! Haha… My mum hates it when I try Maxi dresses! She feels that it makes me look fat and short~ But somehow I still like how flowy and comfortable they are!

    1. Yeah girl Maxi dresses are the BOMB. I wear them and maxi skirts in the summer cuz pants are just way too hot sometimes.
