This is what I wore Easter Sunday. Yep, Easter. You know, that thing that happened a few weeks ago? Usually I am not this behind on outfit pics, so please forgive me. The past few weeks have been buuuusy but now that Eric has wrapped up his finals and campus is deserted, it's gotten much better. I seriously love living in a college town in the summer. The streets are un-congested, there is no wait at my favorite restaurants, and I can go to Target in disgusting clothes and not run into my students. That is what summer is to me, you guys. Well, that and maxi dresses. I am obsessed. I haven't bought any clothes in the last few months, but the only thing that has tempted me is maxi dresses. I mean, I'm practically wearing a giant nightgown. Doesn't get much better.

  4. HI from PP linkup. I love the green in this dress, very feminine as well. The mustard yellow cardi is a nice color combo to add. Looks great

  9. Best Maxi ever. Love the colors, shape of it and the stripes. It is pretty Nautical-looking and if you don't know how I feel about Nautical Looks, check my OOTD Posts this week. I am all about a Pretty Statement Dress (wearing a Statement Dress today - come take a look). Yours is definitely a Statement Dress. Love that you went with a Mustard Cardigan and no jewelry, letting the Dress be the star of the outfit. So, so pretty. One of your dress.

    Well you know I am a huge fan of your blog and style. Your blog has it all:style, life-style, home decor and more. =)

    1. I meant to say "One of your best" as in best outfits not "one of your dress" lol. Oops.

  11. Ashley, this maxi is beautiful on you! I love the way the stripes change direction. Plus, the colors are great. I totally agree about the difference in college towns during summer. So much easier to get around! My sister still loves there, and I am still amazed at the change when I go back traffic wise. Hope you're having a great week!

  12. I love this maxi! And I agree with you. Maxi's are pretty much like wearing dressy pajamas, but you look so stylish and classy! I'll take that any day :)

  17. I am always behind on my outfit posts too, but that is just how things go! I love this maxi on you, and I am so looking forward to summer. Of course where I live there will always be more traffic and people, but I love summer all the same.

  23. Gorgeous outfit, even if it's not from like, yesterday! :)

    I am so loving maxi dresses too. Like, you're literally socially accepted anywhere and you're comfortable like you're wearing sweats. Such a perfect idea, whoever decided they were "cool."

  30. I've love that dress!! It is so pretty! I know what you mean about college towns during the summer. I lived in Madison, WI one summer and it was amazing and so different from during the school year. Have a great weekend!

  33. This dress is b-e-a-utiful, and I love your hair this way. I realized that days off for my high school students and me means that I run into them everywhere, so I can see the draw to a college town, haha. You know, I even went to the Caribbean with my husband and ran into a student on the beach. AWKWARD.

  34. Haha, Kevin and I were just talking about how much we love living in a college town in the summers. It makes up for how awkward it is during the rest of the school year ;) We're moving in about two weeks, and this is the first time since I graduated from high school that I'll be NOT living on a college campus or in a college town, so I'm reallllly excited about the change :)

  35. Hahaha, "I'm practically wearing a giant nightgown"

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
