On Sunday, I Showered

Dress: Old Navy, Sweater: Old Navy, Shoes: Soda, Flower: Fossil Outlet, Watch: Fossil Outlet, Necklace: Lisa Leonard Designs

On Sunday I showered.  AND did my hair. AND then put on a dress for Church. It was quite a a feat for this packing Momma.  The last ten days have been sweats and baseball cap kinda days, and I imagine the next few weeks will be the same. So let’s soak in this pretty and simple summer dress together shall we, Ahhhhhh.  Because it’s all grease and grime from here on out. 

Tomorrow is day one of moving day.
Bitter sweet.

I will be linking this outfit up to WIW on The Pleated Poppy and Real Momma, Real Style on MGR.

  1. Question:

    how did you get the dress to not drag the ground? I want so badly to wear maxi dresses, but I'm 5 ft tall and I don't think they'd work for me! You look adorable though!

  2. Tracy @CherryBlissPhotography/AvaMarieCreates says:

    Adorable- I've always thought those dresses were just for tall girls- looks great on you.

    Good luck with the move- such a lot of work to move ! uggh. πŸ˜€

  3. LOVE your outfit!! I need to get me a maxi dress. Good luck with the moving! I just moved 2 months ago and it was a lot of work. I hope you guys have help with the move. Good luck!

  4. Tracy @CherryBlissPhotography/AvaMarieCreates says:

    I once read somewhere that when you feel like you need something most- give it to someone else and karma may return it to you.

    Did I ever tell you clearly how when you did my spot for Ava Marie Creates how I appreciated your honesty, time and kindness? If not, thanks. And if I did, it's nice to hear twice. πŸ˜€

    I'm on hiatis from Ava Marie….not sure which direction i'm going in with it.

  5. Before you even said where you got that red dress i was like old navy baby! they had that special sale on those recently am i right!? love them!

  10. Michelle says:

  11. good luck sweet gal.

    I love the flower too.

  21. Brittany-Trends250 says:

  24. becky v says:

    I'm there with you…we are moving across the country with our 6 month old in two weeks…I'm not only trying to organize for the movers, but we are downsizing our 'stuff' too. Add to that my growing sadness about leaving our friends, house, and cute neighborhood. You're positive moving post inspired me though…I love how excited you are about the new place…I'm trying to channel that positivity. Good luck!!

  25. PeaceLoveApplesauce says:

    loving the wedges!!
    i've bought 2 maxi's this year and have yet to wear either out of the house for fear they make me look preggers and/or fat. i'm only 5'3.
    why do they make everything so dang long??!

  26. you look so cute! I think I need to try t shirt under a dress like that. Love it way more that way than skin-la-la πŸ˜‰

  27. Anonymous says:

    This dress makes you look like a 6 feet tall super model. :0) Love it. It also inspired me to actually get dressed up today for no special reason. My hubby loved it…

  28. I love the colours in your hair Ashley. Your hair always looks great. I have read your hair tutorial but don't have long enough hair to do that to mine :(.
    Love this dress, it's really cute. It definitely makes you look taller.
    BTW…Good luck with the move.

  29. Comeca Jones says:

    Lovin the red! Super cute outfit!

  30. Jayna Rae says:

    Somedays are just FINALLY shower days. Life with kids can get so in the way, and I cannot even imagine how moving would throw it for a loop. You look like all sorts of hotness. I love the outfit. I am sure that you will be thankful for all of the non-shower days once you are settled in.

  31. I love that dress!!
    I've been looking for a thrift store version but can't find any long enough. Dangit.

    I hope moving day went well. I. am. so. tired. of. moving.

  32. To cute honey! I love it when I have somewhere to go and get to get somewhat dressed up.

  33. I have a hard time wearing maxi dresses too, unless of course I wear some 3 or 4 inch wedges..

  34. Jessica @ Barefoot by the Sea says:

    Ok, I'm no stalker but came across your blog when searching for cake pop tutorials (thank you btw). Love your blog (just voted for you). You are adorable and look a tad bit like Jennifer Anniston (again, no crazy here, just admiration!) So, I'm excited to become your newest follower! Added you to my blog roll too!

  43. the pleated poppy says:

    you kill me. you are adorable! and i love love lovey love the high neck tank under the dress – i must try that! be on the lookout… thanks for linking up again!

  44. I'd love to find a petite maxi dress.

  45. Annie @ Wattlebird says:

    Wow, I LOVE the dress and the scenery in these photos. But I HATE packing and moving, so I'm sure that is no fun for you either.

  46. I like the look of the white tee under the dress. I am considering giving away all of my not-so-conservative tanks and dresses, and have thought of a tee as a solution, but have yet to try it. What type/brand top are you wearing? The fit seems perfect.

  47. Ashley @ Coffee and Apple Juice says:

    that dress is adorable. glad to have found your blog

  54. I just wanted to tell you, you single handedly changed my mind about maxi dresses. I solely used to believed NO ONE looked good in a maxi dress… short, tall, thin, heavy, busty, etc etc. But you my dear, look stunning! I love love love this!!

    New follower and fan πŸ™‚

  55. I LOVE maxi dresses! I pretty much live in yoga pants, but maxi dresses are such a chicer alternative!
