Outfit Post: Birthday Tie Dye and Ice Cream

Yesterday was my birthday. It wasn't a milestone birthday by any stretch but I had a new dress and I had a new bag so girrrrrrl, you know I had to convince the man to do something special for the occasion. The man surprised me by taking me to a yummy bistro and feeding me wine and ice cream. It was a pleasant one, for sure. Something I was the most excited about? Was showing off this smashing Karen Kane tie dye maxi dress, Made in the USA, baby! It is literally the softest jersey and really makes a statement. Check out what I mean and please don't think any less of me for pulling the "Angelina Jolie Leg" bit with the slit in my dress. I just couldn't help myself! This dress will transition from Summer into Fall quite nicely I think.

We did our precious photo shoot at Kimball's Ice cream, which is a go to in my area on steamy days like it was on my bday (notice my frizzy hair). The man may have been slight embarrassed that we were stopping to take picture but dude, my dress and ice cream seemed to go hand in hand. ;-) We might have gotten some looks but I decided this was the birthday where I decided not to care.
