I’m so excited to be back in NYC and blogging! The past few months have been crazy with college graduations, job hunting, and my personal favorite, traveling! Thankfully, with a new job and things having settled down, I’m super excited to share with you all my fashion adventures and thoughts again 🙂
————————————————————————————————————————-It’s finally summer!!!! Which means bright and fun outfits that just scream “Hello Sun!!” How do I welcome in summer? In my new DIY tie-dye tank top!!! Nothing to me screams bright and fun more than some funky bright colors. #bringingbackthe70s I first started liking Tie-Dye shirts when I made my first DIY Tie-Dye tank tops for six flags during senior week at Boston University. My roommate and I decided that we wanted to be cool and be able to find each other easily in an amusement park if we ever lost each other….so what did we do? Tie-Dyes!!!!
Tie-Dyes are super fun and easy to make though I do have to confess, my roommate Katelyn did most of the work. (Love ya Girlie!!) We started off with buying white tank tops from TJMaxx, of course making sure they were cotton since cotton works best to get the colors to blend well. We started twisting the shirts in different directions to get that fun swirly look. Afterwards, we (and by we, I mean Katelyn) squeezed different dyes into each section of the tied up shirt. After that, we placed the shirts in plastic bags and allowed it to sit and soak overnight. We then rinsed out the dye and then washed and dried the tanks. We were sooo ready for Six Flags! (I tried to go with a pink summery sunset theme.)
**Side note: there are many ways to getting different patterns. It’s just how you fold or twist the shirts. I was lazy and didn’t know what I was doing, so I did the simple swirls.
This DIY project has been one of the best ones yet since I can wear it whenever and wherever! Tie-Dye never goes out of style and always screams fun. I’ve been wearing it on super nice days feeling like the happiest girl in the world! Seriously….wearing bright happy colors always cheers me up!
What kind of patterns do you like for your Tie-Dyes?
What colors cheer you up during the summer?
