But for some reason, I find really good maxis are extremely hard to find.
Like even though I ADORE them, until recently I only actually owned 1.
Some of them are a little too body conscious for my taste ifyouknowwhatimean, and most are wayyyyy too long for me.
I recently found the perfect maxi dress!
It looks great ifidosaysomyself.
It’s super comfy and soft,
It can be dressed up or down.
WAIT FOR IT…..
It’s from Old Navy and ONLY $29.94
AND HOLD ON TO YOUR HANKY PANKY’s,
but TODAY (online only – not valid at stores) you can pick it up for 30% OFF, which will make it $20.95
Now that’s just stupid.
TWENTY DOLLARS FOR A DARLING DRESS!!!!!!
Use the code: ENJOY
The code ENJOY will you get 30% OFF regular priced items and 20% OFF sale items!
Carter was at a friend’s house, so Chris and I went to an early dinner on the square last week.
And my new maxi got to make it’s debut!
I was feeling pretty sassy in my maxi :), and we were on the square after all, so we decided to just bust a move and try to get some pics.
For only our 2nd time, we are getting pretty good at snapping pics while nobody is looking.
Even though.our favorite places so far have been desolate alley ways.
Whatever. The less people that stumble upon us, the better!
And you would never know this, but in the first picture below, there was a trash can immediately to the left of me.
Click HERE for the maxi.
For size reference, I’m wearing an x-small in the “regular” length.
A petite probably would have been better on me, but they didn’t have a petite in store, and I wanted it immediately. The regular length is good for me when I’m wearing wedges, but it definitely puddles on the floor when wearing flip flops.
When ordering the dress, make sure you have it on “regular”, “tall”, or “petite” depending on your preference. For some reason the link defaults to “tall”.

Kendra Scott (in Salmon at Nordstrom HERE ) / necklace also available in Magenta without the tassel HERE at Nordstrom/ small spear earrings HERE / leather tote c.o. HERE (use the code MAMA10 and order by April 27th for guaranteed Mother’s Day delivery!)/ similar wedges HERE / St. Anne leather tote c/o HERE
Get the Look For Yourself by clicking on pictures you are interested in below. My exact wedges have been sold out for 2 years, but these are a great option (people that have both pair love this pair too!):
And if you wonder why I’m wearing sunglasses in most pictures, the answer is simple.
On a normal day I have rather large eyes. Okay, they’re huge. But in the sun? In the sun they all but completely disappear out of my head I squint sooooooooo badly in even the tiniest bit of sun.
So, when outside and taking pictures, sunglasses it is!
Other random fact, I sneeze almost every time I walk out into the sun. And so does Carter.
Yes, I cropped my face out…because HOLY UGLY.
Don’t worry, there are a couple of outtakes at the end, but this one was just TOO MUCH. 🙂
And let’s pay attention to the girls in this picture, because THIS STRAPLESS BRA (ON SALE for 30% OFF right now, and worth every. single. penny.) is a game changer in the world of strapless bras. They are lifted, they are nicely rounded (sorry dad!), and they are comfy.
And if you are smaller chested, Wacoal makes THIS strapless too!
Since my exact MUST HAVE jacket is almost sold out, I thought it would be nice to give you some jacket options! And I thought it would be best if I gave options from
Old Navy BECAUSE 40% OFF.
I mean, if you are throwing the dress in your cart and you don’t yet have a denim jacket, you might as well throw one of these babies (or maybe a cardigan) in your cart too.
After all, if you reach $50, you get FREE SHIPPING.
Anyhoo….Old Navy jacket options in the collage below…..
very light wash jacket HERE / light wash HERE / medium wash HERE / dark worn HERE /
There is also a plus size option HERE
And a white denim option HERE.
So above I showed you the maxi with a denim jacket, wedges, and a dressy necklace which would be perfect for church, date night, or even a wedding or baby shower!
But I also wanted to show you how easy it is to dress the same maxi down.
This time I paired it with a casual necklace, a short-sleeved cardi, and some flip flops.

And now, time for a fancy graphic!
And purely fyi (except the opposite), if you ever want to pin an image from the blog, just hover over the picture, and when the little Pinterest red “P” pops up, click it!
And you FOR SURE need a close up of my bracelets. Because my bracelet game was
strong this day.

And just for giggles, some out-takes.
I wonder what smart comment Chris had just made that made me raise my glasses and give him the “oh no you didn’t” look.
I have several things I’d like to personally comment on in the following pics:
open your eyes Sheaffer / quite poofing your hair Sheaffer / put your glasses down fool
And….since you might be shopping at Old Navy today (UM. HELLO. 40% OFF)…. I wanted to show you some more awesome and affordable pieces that you might want to consider throwing in your cart!
Need I remind you again that a $50 cart minimum will allow you to qualify for free shipping?!? 🙂
First off, you might consider getting more than 1 maxi (you’ll see in a second that I did!).
Click HERE for all 4 colors of my exact maxi.
(Click HERE for other maxis available! There are LOTS to choose from!)
The navy and pink floral is so pretty, and the fit is great!
I LOVE a popover. I like the look of a button up without having it actually be a button up. This one is perfect. You just slip it over your head, and you are good to go. You can wear it as a tunic, or you can do a full or 1/2 tuck. It works all ways!
For size reference, I’m wearing a small in the floral top.
floral popover HERE / plus size version HERE / short necklace HERE /
rayne necklace in magenta HERE / earrings HERE / sandals HERE
Here’s how to get the look for yourself!
And just to show you how in love I am….
After wearing it to dinner last week, I wore it to mycousin Alden’s baby shower this weekend!
I just switched it up a bit with different accessories (all old, so not able to be linked).
Love you Alden!
And…because I’m nothing if not
long-winded thorough….maybe you’d like it in black?
Well you’re in luck…because I got it in black too.
black maxi HERE
Again, make sure you choose “regular”, “tall”, or “petite” accordingly.
pink cardigan is like 5 years old, but you can find a similar one HERE at Old Navy!/$8 pale pink studs HERE / $18 crystal pendant HERE / cognac sandals HERE
Well played Old Navy. Well played.
You’ve impressed me.
Here are some other pieces I’m loving right now.
Again, any or all of these could help you get to the $50 mark! 🙂
And can we have a short convo about THIS dress?
The color, The little star pattern. The overall shape. The little gathered neckline.
All of it is speaking to me.
It’s saying “buy me”.

HOLY MAMA it’s CUTE!
I spent some time playing around on the site and designing my newest bag. See, they all have my initials on them! Can you guess which one I ended up going with?
(I got lots of questions about this last time. My full name is Lauren Sheaffer Sims. My parents named me Lauren Sheaffer, but they always called me Sheaffer. Just fyi!)
Or do you have somebody in your life that’s about to be a new mama?
Maybe it’s YOU!
If so, how fabulous would THIS be as a gift?!?
I’m thinking all new mamas would be THRILLED to get this!
