Tie-Dye Maxi Dress

Whenever it's a blazing hot day, I prefer to wear something loose, long and flowy.  So it was a perfect day for my tie-dye maxi dress.

I got this dress long before maxis became popular and it's a size bigger than I normally wear which is perfect for a hot sticky day.

I used to always wear a tank under it because the buttons would gape open when I sat down.  So ages ago, I did a refashion with a bit of blue lace and made a fake cami underneath.

The dress has that long-body effect which I hate, so I tied a similarly printed scarf around my waist.  It just picks up the purple patches on the dress.

I also wore my blue T-strap Mary Janes from Spain - I think of these as "school shoes" because in the old days, kids used to wear shoes like this to school didn't they?

These shoes come in blue, red and black and I think next time I'm in Spain, I'll get another colour - maybe red.

It turned out the dress was a good choice for today because it was not only hot and sticky, but we had a barbecue at work - so the loose dress was perfect for a burger and potato salad.  No dinner for me tonight.
