Things I love…Fall Fashion!

Well Hello old friend! It’s that time again {I’m sure you have been waiting with bated breath, not} Things I love! With the start of school and a new semester I just can’t wait to start wearing fall clothes! It is going to be so nice to be able to walk outside for five minutes and not have sweat running down your forehead! gross! So here is a little peek at some fall fashion I will be sporting in the cooler weather.

1. Big Sweaters. I love sweaters so much, in fact it in 100 and something degrees outside right now and I am wearing a cardigan. I just think they are a great way to pull together a look as well as being modest and warm! I am obsessed with this anthro sweater on the left, too bad it is no longer available in the store or online {so sad} so we will just have to use it as inspiration. I also love this maxi skirt with the sweater on top, it’s a great way to use your summer maxi’s in the fall! It really makes a great look.

2. Blazers. I think blazers and jackets are one of the most versatile pieces you can have in your closet! You can wear them  to work and then out on the town later. They can pull a look together and make you look instantly chic {Chic c’est la vie, sa bonne, sa bonne}! Still can’t get over this leather jacket in the middle! SO CUTE! 

3. Fur Vests. I know this may be pushing the edge for some of you out there, but really you should give fur {or faux fur} a chance. I think fur gives you instant confidence. It’s is totally rocker but it is also has a lot of elegance. Wear this with solid shirts or even a sheer blouse, go for it…get your Rachel Zoe on! 

4. Fall Pants. These JCrew cigarette pants are incredible. JCrew has a lot of different colors of these pants in their fall line including cobalt blue. I love the idea of mixing things up and having such bright colors be apart of your fall wardrobe! Can I just say,  I  love that wide leg pants are coming back!  They are so slimming and are really refreshing after years of skinnies {not that I am throwing mine away}. This look is best with a fitted top since the bottoms are already exaggerated. Prefect for the weekend…as well as those blazers, sweaters, and fur!

5. Accessories. How awesome are those messenger bags?! I think they are incredible! Too bad they have quite a steep price tags! I will be on the look out for something similar at H&M, F21 & Zara! Scarves work perfectly to freshen up an outfit! I personally own a lot of scarves {hoarding? nahh}. Some of my favorites are ones that I have picked up from my travels. I also love that they are affordable…really get your bang for the buck! Be on the look out for pretty silk ones for all of your new blazers! 

6. Nail Polish  My favorite part! This fall Chanel is coming out with three new blues for their fall line. This makes me so happy! If you are not wanting to spend $20+ on a bottle you may want to check Target for similar colors! Essie’s fall line is filled with muted neutrals. I can’t wait to try these out! {nail party!} 

Well there you have it. My favorite Fall Fashion of the season! I am by no means an expert…but, I hope you enjoyed my tips! I hope you  have a fabulous weekend, and make sure  head over to NorthPark to freshen up your fall wardrobe!

Something in the Water…

Aaah Aaah Aaah…
there’s something in the water, something in the water.

Nothing like starting the day off with a little Brooke Fraser.

{It’s my ringtone for my alarm, let’s just say it goes off for awhile}

Well here is it is. My senior year of College (gasp). The last first day, I thought it would never happen (I’m sure you feel the same way, mom).

I can remember one time  in elementary the night before the first day of classes sleeping in my school clothes because I was so excited for first day.  My thought process was that I would just be able to jump out of bed, brush my teeth, put on my tennies…ready to go! Pretty practical if you ask me.

Today has been pretty breezy so far. Only fell once…yea that happened (happens). Went to chap chap. Sat through one little class. Lunch at the same place (eating the same thing as always). Working. Working. Working. It’s crazy how fast things just get back to normal.

As this season of my life is starting to wind down, I can’t help but be excited for what God has up his sleeve. (Something in the Water) He has been so faithful in my life and has provided in ways that I didn’t even know I needed/wanted. I honestly have only the tiniest glimpse of what I am going to do after I graduate, but this I do know: I am putting my hope in the one that never fails me, and holds all of creation in his hand-I think that’s good enough for me.

Sooo….yea! for first days, fresh starts, and sleeping in your school clothes 😀

Summer in Review.

Well here I am. (Hello, I am Ashley. Nice to meet you) Yes, I am alive. I apologize for my lack of posts in the last few weeks. I don’t know if it was the summer heat or my summer school but I have been in the blogging blues. So I am just going to start again…hope you stop by every once in a while.

I thought I would include some of my favorite things about this summer (which is coming to a very close end).

One of my very best friends Sasha got married this summer.

She was stunning!

Here is a fun pic of all 9 bridesmaids

Congratulations to Sasha, Jessica, and Lauren…They all had beautiful Summer 2011 wedding (and did not die from heat stroke bonus).
Another Highlight for this Summer a surprise trip to California to support our DBU Patriots in the Super Regionals for college baseball (so proud of them). It was an incredible trip including getting to explore San Francisco, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz.Besides these fun things the summer has been pretty mundane. Lots of working and classes. But, a summer love was born! Nail Parties…I know I have ranted about them before but they really are great. They are pretty much free (blessings), great time with friends, and you your nails look awesome! Here are a few of my favorite manicures from the summer time!Well it has been a good summer and this only covers a small portion…but it’s an effort anyways.

I am very hopeful for the fall, I think it will be great. Perhaps the best one yet?

Seniors 2012!

As far as the blog, well I’m trying 🙂
