Graduation Party Look

I went to my stepson's graduation party over the weekend, and I wanted to share this amazing UNDER $30 Merona maxi dress from Target that I wore!  I don't like spending a lot on dresses because, quite honestly, I just don't wear them very often.  I first spotted this dress on The Lipstick Law's Instagram page.  Definitely follow her if you don't already!  Many of the clothes I own I first spotted on her feed - and most are very affordable.

The day after the graduation party, we went to the actual graduation ceremony and I wore this gorgeous floral lace dress!  I wore the white, and I received so many compliments on it.  I hope I have another occasion to wear it soon.  If not, I'm going to make the hubby take me to a nice restaurant just so I have an excuse to wear it!

To see all of my looks before they hit the blog, or to just get to know me better and see what I'm up to, don't forget to follow along on Instagram!  I love to meet new people and find new feeds on Instagram.  And if you have this maxi dress, post a picture and tag me or comment here and let me know what you think.  Are you as impressed as I am for an under $30 dress?

  6. This dress is so pretty, perfect for Summer. Its very girly but at the same time looks very classy. I love wearing long dresses :) x

  7. Ashley, you look gorgeous in that maxi dress, it fits you perfectly! I love the black and white print and neckline, I think I may need to pay a visit to Target soon! To be honest, I don't shop there very often for clothes because I forget, since the one nearest me, isn't that close; I have to try and remember! I love the other dress you've linked that you wore to the ceremony; I'm sure you looked absolutely gorgeous in it! Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you're having a great week so far!



  8. Love this maxi dress!! Going to check out Target's collection! :o)

  10. That’s an awesome share about the Graduation Party Look. This look was super adorable and I like such sophisticated styles a lot. Even I am going to attend a weekend party at one of the roof top event venues Chicago and truly, this dress is going to compliment the theme of that bash. Thanks for the idea.
