Like a Firecracker

This dress haunted me all summer. I saw it at several boutiques that I frequent online but was trying not to buy.all.the.things. You know that feeling? Yeah, every once in awhile, I listen to that little voice in my head (and wallet) and don’t buy things.


Then I saw this dress on The Printed Palette’s Instagram sale. And I held off again. Fast forward another month and I see it again. And there is like one left. In my size. I couldn’t help myself any longer and bought it. But hey, at least it was a steal at $24. So that makes the little voice in my wallet a bit quieter.

Since I didn’t get it until it was cold outside, and I pretty much HAD to wear it right away, I  had to get a bit creative on styling. How would you take a dress like this into cooler weather?




Seriously, how great is the dip dye on this dress?!?
