blue dye dress

 This blue ombre dress is so fun and flowy. The dye in this dress shows just how summery it is. It's actually a tank dress, so I added a navy blue short sleeve underneath to make it modest. I usually am completely against wearing shirts underneath dresses or tank tops, but you can't even tell there's a difference because it's the same color. #ModestHack It's been rainy the past couple of weeks so it's fun to see this bright, sunshiny pictures. As I shot these pictures, I definitely learned how easily it can get caught in the wind. Read on to hear the whole story.

It's pretty busy, on a main road where we're taking pictures. Construction workers are nearby and people are constantly walking around. It was pretty windy and my dress kept flying up without me noticing {because it's so lightweight I couldn't tell when it was lifting}. Next thing I know, my dress COMPLETELY flew up right in front of this older couple walking by and they said to Kelsie, my photographer, "You just missed the best shot." I was so embarrassed as I had just flashed everything to the couple. Pretty equivalent of the feeling you get when someone walks on you while you're going to the bathroom {which has happened to me many times as well}. At least we used the wind to our benefit and got some cute shots where you couldn't see anything else. ;)

  1. Love this outfit! And you're right, can't even tell you have a tshirt under the dress! I did that when I was in Greece, but you could totally tell, haha (the dress dipped too low for me so I just dealt with it.)

  2. Love the dress! I would've never know you were wearing a shirt underneath it!

    At least you'll never see those people again! lol!
