Turquoise and Amber Tie-dyed Boho-chic

In the 60s I made my own tie-dyed T-shirt. I thought tie-dyed clothes were very cool and artistic, mixing colours like an abstract painting.

I bought this outfit a few years ago and I usually wear it once a year. It’s great for dancing and garden parties. Blending turquoise and amber is a beautiful combination and I have a collection of turquoise and amber jewellery to choose from.

  1. I was around for the original tie dye too. I love it! Especially when it has purple in it! πŸ˜‰
    Turquoise and amber is such a cheerful combo!

      Thank you dear Ute! The scent is so soothing! I used to have a lilac bush outside my dining room window and the fragrance would drift in and fill the room … ahhhh πŸ™‚

    What lovely photos and a gorgeous outfit. I can see where it would be fun to wear this dancing.

    I’m officially scared now that you’ve said we will be halfway to Christmas. Not cool.

      Thank you my dear Suzanne! We do share a love for pretty things! So much beauty around us to enjoy and our clothes are part of that beauty.

      Sorry about the reminder that we’re almost half-way to Christmas, but one of my dance students has already started her Christmas shopping. I think I’ll wait till after summer. πŸ˜‰

      Let’s enjoy the warm weather first!

    Beauty, elegance and poetry, a wonderful combination. A beautiful combination of colors, flowers and scents. The flowers are very nice, the lilacs are especially beautiful. And you, you look wonderful mixtures in the garden, you complement it, and you highlight. I love the shirt and skirt, with this style as flower power, elegant and casual at the same time. The movement and the volume of the skirt along with the subtle delicacy of your dance, is a wonderful combination. I guess jewels are beautiful and delicate, but in the pictures are not well appreciated. Beauty, elegance, poetry and… your smile, the best picture of spring.

      Thank you so much my dear Josep-Maria! The layered ruffles of the skirt makes me feel like a Spanish dancer. Spring is my favourite season with beautiful blossoms and flowers, and the weather is pleasant, not hot and humid as summer will bring soon.

      Sending warm wishes of sunshine to brighten your weekend!

        Dear Carmen, I just saw you completed your post with some pictures of jewelry. Thank you very much, I love them, they are beautiful. The turquoise color is very beautiful to stones for bracelets and pendants. Amber is also wonderful. The design of all the pieces is gorgeous and perfect for your look. I bought a long time ago, a similar bracelets in Store Sundance Festival, hosted by Robert Redford. Today I looked at them, and they to are no longer there, it is a pity. Where you bought these beautiful pieces?
