Grayson and I recently visited New Orleans for the first time courtesy of refinery29 and Hotel Indigo. It was such a whirlwind trip that we literally booked it right before Thanksgiving and left the day after the holidays for a quick, 48 hour getaway. Since we didn’t have much time to spend in NOLA we definitely had to make the most of it. Whether you’re staying for the weekend or longer, here’s my must see guide to guarantee a great time in New Orleans. Continue Reading
By now, most of you all know that I had major shoulder surgery a week ago and I wanted to give everyone an update on what they found, fixed and how I am doing. I’ve also included some really helpful tips and tricks to help if you have to go through something similar, which I hope you don’t! It’s definitely been one of the toughest recoveries so far and I’m still only 6 days in! Continue Reading
Anyone who lives in the south knows that layering is a must when “winter” hits. How are we supposed to dress cute when the high is going to be in the 80s all week with a low in the 40s?? Even for me, it is a daily struggle trying to figure out what exactly to wear when our weather is all over the place. I’ve partnered with Nordstrom today to show you all how we can easily look stylish and put together when the weather is all over the place!
To say this week has been hectic and stressful is an understatement. As most of you know from Instagram or Facebook I am having shoulder surgery Friday so I’ve been a little MIA trying to plan out my life for the next 2+ months while I will be out of commission. I really thought I was going to be so on top of things once this surgery got scheduled; I planned to make lists and get organized to get posts out, shoot content and just get my life in order because I literally won’t be able to care for myself for quite sometime. Thankfully, I have an amazing mom who is coming in for an entire week to make sure I am taken care of!
When I first heard about capsule wardrobes a few years ago I thought it was such an inventive idea for people who wanted to declutter their lives. So what exactly is a capsule wardrobe? It would be described as a compact wardrobe made up of specific staple pieces in neutral or similar color tones. A capsule wardrobe is normally comprised of 30 items or fewer which includes everything from clothing, shoes, bags, and accessories. It is essentially a fool proof way to get dressed on a daily basis.
Are you sweater obsessed? Me too! It’s to the point I just stock up for photos… Am I the only person that does this?? Grayson literally thinks I’m crazy! I have piles and piles of sweaters and he’s like seriously, Ashley, you NEVER wear any of these! But honey… They make amazing photo props or what if we go somewhere really cold and I need to pack ALL of my sweaters?! There ARE definitely a handful that I wear on a daily basis in the winter and the sweater in this post is definitely one of my faves.
For someone who lives in Texas where it never truly gets THAT cold, I sure own a TON of coats! I’ll be that crazy person when its 85 degrees (like yesterday) I’ll be bundled up like the snow-pacolypse is coming! True story. It’s so embarrassing because I have an ungodly amount of winter clothing that I rarely even get to wear and when summer rolls around I’m like, where the hell are all of my warm weather clothes?! The struggle is real!
The era of customization is upon us. Practically everything we can put our hands on can be customized to a consumer’s specifications; shoes, clothes, hats, handbags and so much more. It’s rare that we actually see designer goodies that actually have interchangeable parts though. The latest trend that seems to be hitting the fashion scene are interchangeable purse straps, which to me is a genius idea! Investing in a handbag is that much easier and practical if you can customize it to match a different outfit everyday.
How is it almost 2017!? Am I the only one blown away that New Years is only a week away?? I thought I was planning my schedule out so well and anticipated this post being up last week BUT who am I kidding; life happened and I’m a little delayed on almost everything at this point! Better late than never, right?? I can’t be the only one. 🙂 I mean, I literally just bought my NYE dress yesterday before we go out of town but it is such a stunner, I’m so excited to share the photos with y’all! Continue Reading
Do you ever see a dress online and you just know it’s going to be a winner?? That’s exactly how I felt about this Free People stunner; easy, breezy, elegant and perfect for summer or fall! Take a look for yourself! If that main image doesn’t suck you in, I don’t know what will! I was really looking for something dramatic, yet comfy, for our trip to New Orleans. Being in a new city I wanted something that would be different than my norm. and I definitely think this dress did the trick.
