Ever been stumped on what to wear to a wedding?? As a stylist, I get that question ALL the time. I wanted one of my recent Ask Ashley articles to not only be informative on how to be the best dressed guest but to also show photos so you can actually get an idea of what types of wardrobe work for multiple types of weddings.
I recently wrote an article for Austin Woman Magazine about what timeless style is all about. With this project, I styled and modeled multiple outfit examples of what a 20 year old all the way to a 60 year old could easily pull off. I feel like lately I have been hearing so many people in their 40s-60s wondering if their style was too old looking for them but they weren’t sure how to pull off similar looks that I was personally wearing. It’s not about how to pull off exact looks that I am sharing with everyone, it’s about implementing certain pieces with your current wardrobe to help build your own style that fits your personality and age. A 60 year old doesn’t have to dress like a 60 year old but can mix in those pieces that fit their style better. Most tell me they don’t feel 40, 50 or even 60, they feel 30 but don’t want people to think they are trying too hard to be young again. This magazine article has 5 looks for any occasion that ANYONE at ANY age can pull off.
Who’s ready to do a little Labor Day sale shopping?? I know all of these sales can be extremely overwhelming so I did most of the leg work for y’all and picked out the best deals and cutest goodies! All you have to do is click and buy; easy as that. 🙂 Most of these sales are good until the 5th and 6th, so take advantage before items sell out, and they ARE going fast! I’ve listed some of my favorite retailers who are having the best of the best sales right now, so stock up!!
Hello National Swimsuit Day! (Was anyone else aware this was a thing?? Like I need an excuse to buy more swimwear!) As the Texas summer quickly approaches I couldn’t be any less prepared with swimwear. My need to be near a cold body of water is rising and at this point I am scrambling to buy up as much swimwear as I possibly can while saving some money! Which brings me to the point of this post! One of my go-to online swim retailers, Wala Swim is currently having a major site-wide sale for 25% off your ENTIRE purchase with code KICKOFF25. They RARELY have major sales like this so seriously take advantage before prices go back up! Swimwear is not cheap so whenever there is a deal on my favorite designer brands I am on it like white on rice!
Another amazing Target collaboration has hit stores! BaubleBar and Target have teamed up to bring you their very own SugarFix Collection. This new collection is currently being sold exclusively at Target and is being deemed as a long-term collaboration instead of a one-time deal. To me, that’s music to my ears! BaubleBar has and always will be one of my favorite jewelry companies on the market. Not only are their pieces affordable but they are great quality for costume jewelry and they have a massive selection for any occasion. So when I heard they were partnering with Target on the SugarFix collection I was extremely overjoyed!
Hello holidays!! Is this anyone else’s favorite time of the year, or is it just me?? When I think of the holidays I automatically dream of snow, family traditions, yummy food and holiday parties!! Could there be anything better?? I have partnered with Silver Jeans Co. to share one of my favorite cozy Fall looks and talk all about my family’s ever-changing holiday traditions! Are they really traditions if they are always changing?? Ha! What are some of y’alls family traditions??
How is it almost December??? Does anyone else feel like this year flew by? It is still crazy to me that the Texas weather is STILL in the 70s and 80s! Thankfully, we are having a bit of a cold front right now, but seriously, we have to bundle up in the morning and mega layer for the 80 degree temps midday! Where is my winter, Texas?! Lucky for me, the highs are in the 60s today so I got to bundle up a little!
The time is FINALLY here!!! With much excitement I can finally let y’all in on a little project I have been working on for the past couple of months! I am honored to be partnering with Privilege Clothing on my very own capsule collection; The Collective by DTK Austin!
The holidays are right around the corner and if you’re like me, gift giving is a quite the challenge for some of my friends and family. As I’m getting older I realize that in this house, less is more! Most of you know, I purchased a home a little over a year ago, totally gutted it and started a massive renovation. For the most part, the renovation is done but it made me realize that I want absolutely 0 clutter in this house, so when the holidays come around I tell people to save their money and give us gift cards or something we can specifically use! Or you know, a good trip always works too!
My gosh, what a week it’s been! I just realized I didn’t even do a single post during the last 7 days. Sorry for the major delay in posting, hopefully no one noticed me slacking!! Lately I have been so busy with work and life that the blog and Instagram have definitely taken a hit. With the holidays coming up it’s been more of a challenge to keep up with everything (shooting, posting, interacting, etc.) and still live a healthy life! I know most of y’all know exactly what I’m talking about! But enough of boring, real world stuff, let’s get on to the fashion!
