The Floral Maxi

Spring is here, spring is here, it's the best time of the year! I heard that on a cartoon some years ago. It has a nice ring to it. I am loving all of the floral clothes and accessories out this year. I love it when companies provide lots of feminine clothing. It makes shopping so much more enjoyable to me.

Especially when I saw this floral maxi in  New York and Company.

Isn't it lovely? I adore it and went on a quest to find it. The day it hit the website it was immediately sold out! I was furious! I thought what in the world! So I went to the store and they said that they were not getting any. You can't be serious can you? So then I called customer service and they said that it was sold out!

So mad but I stayed elegant and was not rude to anyone. Then one of my co-workers (who works there part-time) told me that it arrived online! Eureka! I ordered it right away and could not be more happier!

And yes it has pockets!

I am wearing an extra large. Honestly, they run big so I could have gone down to a large and it would have been fine. But I think it will shrink once I wash it. But wouldn't this dress be lovely for a graduation, wedding or baby shower?  With Mother's Day arriving soon I think this would be a great dress to wear to church or brunch. I do adore it and wanted to share this lovely find. As always I do hope that you enjoyed this post and might have found your spring maxi!

  1. Dear Mrs. Shockley,
    The skirt is lovely!!!!! You really were on a quest. I love the feeling of finally getting the item AND loving it, such satisfaction.

    I hadn't shopped at NY&co for a while and started looking again, due to your posts. I have a few lovely items from the Eva Mendes Collection,now. They are so well made! The sale prices are unreal. Now, I am always looking. Her dress/skirt lengths are right on target.

    A saw a store, here, you would love....Vintage Home in Cleveland. Be sure to watch the video on the website. You will love this place. If you are ever in the area, it's worth a visit.

    Warmly, Kathleen
