Pre-Black Friday Deals

Hey everyone! I’m sorry that it’s been a few days!

I wanted to share with you a few things that I bought for myself yesterday – a little early Christmas shopping, if you will. Here we go!

First we have AEO Faux Fur Trapper Hat ($34.95). Now I’ve never been one to wear hats like this one, since they are notorious for giving you that messy-bedhead-esqe look, but I tried this on in the store and it was love at first sight. The cream color could match anything, really, and the ears give it a playful touch that I just couldn’t pass up. Just look at them!

Next is the AEO Lace Tight ($12.95). I only have one pair of lace tights, and they’re blush, not black. These will fit perfectly with several items in my closet, including the black and white Aztec dress I just bought.

Lastly, we have the AEO Patent T-Strap Pump ($59.95). These shoes really do it for me. My other nude heels stay in my closet and don’t see the light real often because they’re too tall for everyday use. These puppies are 4.75″ tall – MUCH better for walking (unless you’re one of those crazy 24/7 stilt walkers). Plus, I’ve been a fan of the t-strap shoe ever since my first pair in ninth grade. Looking forward to wearing these this Christmas and year-round. ūüôā

AEO has some pretty awesome deals right now. Everything’s 40% off when you use the code 35787891, and there’s free shipping until Sunday (11/25). Don’t pass up deals when they come to you! Oh, and did I mention I had gift cards? Along with these sweet deals, my entire order was…free. ūüôā

Happy Thanksgiving, guys! Give thanks to God for all he’s blessed us with and go spend it with loved ones. Have a great day!

Love, Ashley

Little Bit-o-Ruffles

Today was a blue and white day until I realized how chilly it was outside. I went back to my room to grab my cozy jacket, thinking I would take it off as it warmed up outside, but I liked the outfit with the jacket. Its loose-fitting nature works perfectly with flared jeans, and the ruffles add an even greater feminine touch to this look.

And Now, Presenting…

Little Black Dress (LBD) for my PR and Research Methods presentations today. I think they both went pretty well! On another note, a big thank you to my boyfriend for buying this necklace for me! And to New View for bringing simple black dresses and black stilettos into my life.

Most Wonderful Time

Hey, everybody!

It’s really cold today, so I decided to throw on a sweater dress and leggings. These leggings are so soft and comfy and I’ve been dying for a chance to wear them for months. Today’s the day! I’m looking a little seasonal, don’t you think?

Bracing for the Cold

It’s about 40 degrees outside as Sandy makes her way up the coast. To shield myself from the cold, here’s what I wore.

Memorable

Hey, everyone!

I’m sorry that I’ve been away for so long. These past several weeks have been some of the busiest I’ve ever experienced. With my research methods class and newspaper editing underway, I’ll be back on top of things before you know it!

Last Monday I enjoyed a nice floral print skirt from Loft and a soft, comfy sweater from J. Crew. As I always say, “Matching is not matching,” so what could be better than this pair?

Busy Little Bee

This has been the busiest week of my life! ¬†It’s finally Friday, which means it’s the weekend, but my work still doesn’t end here…. I need to write an article for the newspaper, finish putting the paper together, write an essay, and finish my post- and pre-lab assignments by the end of the day, because my family is coming to visit tomorrow! ¬†Yay! ¬†Lots to do!

Anyway, here’s what I wore this past Wednesday. ¬†I went 100% professional and¬†LOVED¬†it. ¬†I love each of these pieces so much, so wearing them all together was a¬†blast.

Rain, Rain

After a long night of doing homework, I woke up for my 8am class only to find a cloudy, rainy day.¬† I thought about¬†putting on some yoga pants, but then I¬†decided that a pair of jeans wouldn’t take any extra effort (since one must wear clothes to class anyway). I threw some of these pieces together ten minutes before I was to go out the door, then perfected it after class.¬† It’s kind of girly-meets-punk, plus an umbrella.

Cute with a Chance of Photo Bomb

I didn’t make it to church this morning, but I did have a chance to wear something kind of nice this evening. ¬†I took a simple sundress that I bought in ninth grade and paired it with a fall-colored sweater to bring it into the season. ¬†The belt matched my shoes, so I went for it. ¬†Nothing too fancy, but look at that rosy cheek! ¬†That’s so lovable. ¬†And so is the side of my poster that made it into the picture. ¬†Dorm room life – What can I say?
