Free People Front Tie Midi Dress

I love this dress! I took advantage of a sunny and warm San Diego day not too long ago and wore this super comfy dress to visit a friend. It felt like I was wearing pj’s all day! I’ve experimented with tying it in different ways and I’ve found 3 great options so far!
​I like it best when it’s tied in front, as shown, but it also looks good tied in the back and left untied. Tying it in the front is good for “big eating” days! Haha. Every time I wear it I get compliments, which is always fun!


The back doesn’t provide a lot of coverage – as is usual with Free People clothes – but I’ve styled it with a black bralette and I really liked the look.


Please forgive my silly faces and poses, I’m not all that comfortable yet in front of the camera. I paired the dress with my go-to necklace (from Forever21). I seriously wear it with everything.


I paired the dress this time with my comfiest sandals (Lauren Ralph Lauren), but it looks just as cute – and a little more edgy – with a pair of black booties and a black moto jacket. This dress got a lot of wear in the summer and considering that I paid so little for it (thanks Macy’s!) I’d say it’s already paid for itself. And it still looks great!

The older I get the more I seek out classic items that will last. I hate buying something that’s super cheap only to never wear it. It’s only a good deal if you will wear it and can afford it…
