I’m sharing a #TideChic look as part of a Tide® sponsored series for Socialstars™. As always, all stated opinions are my honest thoughts. I only partner with brands that I truly love!
My friends and I may not be heading to Coachella this year, but Stephanie, Michelle, and I didn’t want to miss out on all of the fun. So we did what normal people do…we hosted a Faux-chella event complete with musical festival-inspired fashion, awesome music, and of course, a menagerie of pool floats. We may not have had the best bands or any celebrity attendees, but our laid-back get-together was exactly what I needed. I swear that laughing with your girlfriends, splashing in the pool, and riding on an inflatable flamingo can solve almost all of life’s little problems.
I have to admit that my everyday style is about as far from boho as it gets. I stick with classic American styles in bright colors, and I can’t say no to a bow detail or scalloped trim. Thankfully Michelle convinced me to try to add a little bit of boho to my look just for the day. I found this elephant print off-the-shoulder dress and knew that it would be absolutely perfect for our pool party, and Michelle kindly gave me the cute heart sunglasses, flower crown, and flash tattoos to finish the outfit.
SHOP THE LOOK:
After an afternoon filled with dancing, eating, joking around, and nearly falling in the pool at least half a dozen times, my work-week blues were completely obliterated. Our neighbors may have wondered why we were dancing around giant pineapple pool floats, but it was definitely worth the embarassment. Faux-chella is definitely better than No-chella, and I think we may have to repeat this event if we don’t make it to Palm Springs next year!
In addition to being extremely comfortable, I love that this boho dress is machine-washable. I use TIDE PODS® to wash almost all of my clothing (safe for use on cotton, acrylic, wool, lace, polyamide, polyurethane, elastane, polyester, rayon, and spandex), and they worked like a charm on my new dress! Unlike other laundry detergents I’ve used in the past, TIDE PODS® keep my clothes stain-free and brightly-colored even after several washes. They’re quick and easy to use, and I will definitely re-purchase another container as soon as I run out!
