Tie-Dye Dresses & Military Inspired Jackets 

Whimsical , beachy , bohemian tie- dye prints seem to be making a comback this season. It seems like this is a trend that never truly goes away. It’s kind of like military -inspired jackets. They have been around since the 60’s and continue to be the perfect neutral , but not boring , top layer for any look. 

So , why not put them together? I found this Calvin Klein dress at thredUP.com and my first instinct was to get it to wear to the pool and playground during the summer when I’m home with the kids. However, when it came in the mail, a few days later , I didn’t want to wait to wear it so I grabbed my go-to Kensie military jacket , Merona tights, and a big brown belt from Burlington Coat Factory. 

So, too many trends in one outfit ? Maybe. Maybe not . Whatever. The point is , I love this dress and I don’t have to wait until  I’m hanging out at the pool or playground to wear it.
