I will admit that I had no intention of being on trend if it meant wearing tie dye. I went to school in Vermont…I have seen enough tie dye for a lifetime. I didn’t need to see it when I looked in the mirror. That was until I tried on this t-shirt dress early on the Sunday morning that the Zac Posen for Target collection hit stores. I had yet to wear it, so with a forecast that included a break from the rain and temperatures around 70, I knew it was making its debut, and I knew it had to be anything but hippie.
It wasn’t quite sunny, but there was some light so I decided to wear my Ray Bans. My bangs were just trimmed, and I love the length with these sunglasses. With the sunglasses the dress felt a little more rock than jam band, so I added tougher accessories with studded shoes and bag and ran out the door.
I like these photos because you can see the tattoos on the inside of my wrists in each one. It wasn’t intentional, but it seems they made their way into every shot. They are the actual paw prints of my cat and dear friend whose time was cut much too short a few years ago, and it really feels like they belong exactly where they are.
Next week at this time I will have a new tattoo...I am giddy with excitement.
