Look Number Two // Dress: Shein || Heels: Target, similar here || Purse: Kate Spade, similar here (under $40) || Sunglasses: RayBan

Happy Monday!

I wanted to share this adorable black-tie dress that is SO comfortable and lightweight; perfect for the warm summer temps! I love love LOVE the off-shoulder look too...and best part? This dress is $18! You really cannot beat the price! I also love that it's a little shorter in the front than it is in the back. Perfect for if you're wearing it with heels!

I styled the dress a few ways; the first look is more casual but still looks super cute when dressed down for running errands or a playdate with the kids! I love that I can wear this with London and feel comfortable AND stylish at the same time. Here, I'm using my Skip Hop diaper bag which I LOVE for so many reasons, but mostly because it's black, chic and doesn't scream "I'm a diaper bag," which I can appreciate.

The second look is perfect for a night out! The dress is easily jazzed up with a quick shoe change, bag change (like this Kate Spade one or this lookalike version for $35!), and hair-do adjustment! I would also add a red lip to really make it pop! You can shop each look through the specific links under the photos above or through the widget below :)

Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Valentine's Day, Lovers! 

I posted this outfit on my Instagram and wanted to share here also! I feel like we had such a mild winter up until this past week! We've had so much snow dumped on us here in Boston, and all I can think of is Spring! The snow, although annoying to manuever in, is so beautiful - especially after a fresh snowfall. I took these photos at my parents farm a few weeks ago with my favorite photographer, Patti Takacs (you can check out her site here!) I love the contrast between the white of the snow and the dark outfit/red lip! The red lip stain "Always Red" that you see me wearing is from Sephora and it's my absolute favorite! It's only $14 and it's so long-lasting. The jacket I actually stole from my mom for this shot (Thanks, Mom!) - it's J.Crew and classic wool blend. I linked a few look-a-likes above!

Pale Pink + Lace...

 

My Outfit: Cynthia Rowley, similar here and here | Jeans: Express | Booties: old, similar (and on sale) here  | Choker: LULO Jewelry | Purse: Nine West, couldn't find exact but love this adorable blush tote 

Happy Monday! 

How pretty is this pale pink and lace combo?! The sweater is actually all in one (sweater with an added lace layer) and I'm drawn to anything already layered so I don't have to think :) The purse was a steal from TJ Maxx ($24, Nine West) and I couldn't find the replica, but I linked a super cute blush tote with floral detailing here. I also thought I'd share some other pieces already layered for your convenience! You can shop them below!

Pink and Red...

 

Happy Monday, Loves! 

I hope you all had a great weekend...we spent most of yesterday relaxing together as a family and eating WAY too much food during the Pats game! With Valentine's Day fast approaching I've started to share some inspiration and gift ideas with you. Today I've picked some of my favorite RED + PINK pieces ... because let's be honest, they really are the prettiest colors, am I right?! :) 

I didn't get to add these sunglasses to my collage below, but I love them! The pale pink rims are so adorable. Also this beautiful lace dress comes in red and it's to die for; the peekaboo shoulder is a huge trend! Enjoy my other picks below - thanks for stopping by!

Here are a few Valentine's Day gift ideas for the lady in your life (and if you're reading this and you're the boss lady - treat yourself!) Flowers and chocolates are always sweet, but totally predictable! Think outside the box and surprise her with something like a new pair of RED Hunter Boots or these cute PINK sunnies (just $50!) 

Happy shopping!

Valentines Day Inspiration...

Yes, I'm already thinking about Valentines Day next month (I'm a girl, duh!) ;) February is one of my favorite months because it's all about LOVE, red, pink, and all things girly. My husband and I don't do anything crazy gift wise, we usually go to a nice dinner together instead - so I've started browsing for some VDay inspiration! I wanted to share some cute items with you all! Enjoy!

It's been so busy gearing up for the holiday week so I thought I'd share with your a little "winter roundup" of my latest Instagrams! I have Chris's birthday coming up in a few days then Christmas of course and my Dad's birthday on the 29th! We barely have time to catch our breath around this time of year! London and I have been staying at my parents house the past few days. We've been making (and feasting!) on cookies, listening to holiday music, wrapping presents, and having a blast playing in the snow! I just love being in Maine for the holidays. I hope you are all have a wonderful week and are finishing the last minute shopping! 

If you need ideas check out my holiday guides: stocking stuffers for him, stocking stuffers for her, my holiday beauty guide, gifts for the homebody, gifts for the athlete, and holiday style picks!

Holiday Gift Guide: Beauty...

Beauty gifts make the BEST gifts because let's face it, make up, hair products, etc are expensive and a lot of us (me) don't always feel right spending $40 on under-eye concealer, even if it is magical + promises to cover up the dark circles underneath my eyes. With Christmas fast approaching, I've put together my list of the "top beauty buys" this season! You can also shop my "beauty must haves" here

If you're looking for cozy gifts my "homebody gift guide" is up! Also, stocking stuffers for her, boots/booties, and the Nordstrom home sale!

How to wear stripes well...

Ladies ... haven't we all been told at one point or another that stripes are the devil? "They make you look wide!" ... "horizontal stripes are soooo not flattering on anyone" ... blah blah blah. Personally, I'm a fan of stripes in fashion. I think there are a few tips to consider when choosing your pieces, but I'm definitely not afraid to rock horizontal striped dresses, shirts, etc. I think they're super cute! A few things to remember ...

1. One piece of clothing can be stripes, the rest should be solid. No conflicting patterns please!

2. Accessorize the stripes! I have the cutest striped dress (navy & white) and I love to wear a chunky colorful necklace to jazz up the look! 

3. Tone down the bold stripes - keep them thin. Pinstripes are especially cute for either business or casual wear. 

Shop my picks above for some chic striped pieces! I even threw some shoes & swimsuits in there as well :)

Ashley
