Striped Maxi Dress Under $30

Hi friends and happy Monday! I hope you had a lovely Easter yesterday. Easter is very different for us now that we don’t have any kids at home. They’re so far away we usually don’t get to be with them, but we are headed to see them this week, so we’re very excited. I am also very excited to be sharing this striped maxi dress that comes in under $30 with you today.

Target Sundress

You might remember this dress from a few weeks ago. Well this striped dress is its fraternal twin. HA! Now hold on here ladies, because I’m going to have to “call out” our beloved Target. This dress says it’s on clearance. Insert audible eye roll here. I don’t know about you, but when I hear clearance, I’m thinking dirt cheap. Like at least 50% off. You know I love me some Target, but come one guys. Reducing a dress 5% and calling it “clearance” is a joke. I digress. Clearance or not, this dress is cute, still a good deal and in stock in all sizes.

Target Sundress

Let me just remind you of a few things to love about this dress. The back is smocked making it easy to fit many sizes. It has adjustable straps. Ding, ding, ding! That’s always a bonus, and it has a cute little tie at the back.

Maxi dresses are having a moment again this year. They were everywhere about 5 years ago, then kind of faded into the background (never leaving), but they’ve managed to push their way back to the front. This one would be perfect for so many occasions from a beach vacation to a date night, girls night or bridal shower. You could also easily throw a denim jacket on for cooler temps or just a cute look.

Need more maxi inspiration? How about one of these? I’ve covered all price ranges. ?

    This is such a great maxi dress – I love the cut and the smocking in the back is great. I wish it came in different colors. I know what you mean about “clearance” in Target’s eyes – ugh, not my definition of clearance either! You look stunning my friend!

    • April 24, 2019 / 6:07 pm

      Thanks sweet friend! Bring on the real clearance!!!

    You know why I adore this dress so much Lisa (besides the fact that it looks amazing on you?). I love that if and when you wouldn’t want it as a maxi anymore, you could easily take off that bottom panel and have a shorter dress!!

    • April 24, 2019 / 6:07 pm

      You’re a genius! It certainly could be shortened. Thanks Jodie!!!

    I love the colors in that maxi dress. I am with you. Clearance is at least 50% off – and a sale is at least 25% off. (5% is nothing). Hope you have a wonderful Monday.

    • April 24, 2019 / 6:16 pm

      YES! See, you understand how a sale should be done. LOL Thanks Lisa!

  5. April 22, 2019 / 11:37 am

    Oh Lisa- fabulous dress on you! Fits you like a glove! Love stripes and this is just perfect 🙂

  6. April 22, 2019 / 5:09 pm

    Cute, cute maxi, Lisa! And I agree! 5% off is NOT a sale!!

    • April 24, 2019 / 6:07 pm

      Yeah, they should be embarrassed to call that a sale. HA!

    I love all your cute sundresses that you post. I don’t wear dresses in the winter at all typically, but love to wear them in the spring and summer.

    Clearance or not, that is a great maxi dress! It looks fabulous on you. Isn’t it funny how styles fade and then come back? I was just writing about that (for a different item) in an upcoming post!

      Thanks Gina! That’s why I’m afraid to get rid of stuff. LOL

    Love the dress! I know exactly what you mean about Target clearance. Many years ago, I loved shopping the Target endcaps and finding 75% off bargains. Now I think Target is so popular and everything sells out before it goes below 30% off. Grrrrr. Thanks for linking up with Hello Monday! Tanya – The Other Side of the Road

    • April 24, 2019 / 5:58 pm

      I know! I still like to check from time to time and get lucky every once in a while. I love a good bargain!

  12. April 23, 2019 / 9:04 am

    I know what you mean! Sometimes I see clearance items and they are only a few cents off! Um, how about a real sale?! That dress is beautiful though! The colors look fabulous together!

  13. April 24, 2019 / 10:18 am

    I know what you mean–there is another retailer whom I checked clearance and it only had a few dollars off. I’m glad maxis are having another moment, they’re so easy to wear. This one looks so good on you.

    • April 24, 2019 / 6:07 pm

      Thanks Kim! Yep, clearance isn’t what it used to be. LOL

    • April 24, 2019 / 6:07 pm

      You’re so sweet! Thank you! I wish that necklace was still available.

    I’m so glad you get to see your sweet kids later this week! That dress is just GORG, love the colors and that the back is smocked!

    Beautiful dress! I love how the stripes go in different directions. I agree about the discount though, clearance to me means 50% or more off! Thanks for linking up!
