CHOPPED IT ALL OFF

(Well, lots of it)

Ashley Sixto Long Wavy Bob

I did a crazy thing this week – but it was about time. My hair needed a little refreshing.

New season. New hair.

I went for a long bob just below my shoulders, just to adjust to having less hair. It’s been years since I last had it this length so I didn’t want to shock myself and regret it. I’m really loving this new look and already craving going a LITTLE bit shorter & brighter.. What do you think? xx

Splurge vs Steal: Burberry Poncho

SplurgeVSSteal_Burberry Poncho

The weather in Spain has quickly dropped in temperature, especially during the evenings, so I’m finding myself staring at my closet and trying different ways to layer up instead of going for my jackets as first instinct. The cooler weather is quickly ushering in creative ways for you and I to keep warm and one “hot” item this season is the cape. From cape blazers to oversized scarves as ponchos, it was all over the runways for Fall 2014 and all over my mind at the moment.

The most eye-catching poncho at the moment is definitely the Custom Burberry Poncho. While we all wish this poncho was on our shoulders reading our initials, It’s already been spotted on Olivia Palermo, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Cara Delevingne. (Lucky babes) 

But don’t fret my loves, I’ve found the almost perfect alternative via the online boutique Choies. And if you’re looking to take this steal to the next level, I would suggest a mini DIY project and have your initials embroidered onto the poncho – score!

I love how this poncho was paired on the runway – A prairie like dress with tons of movement, booties and a structured bag.

A DAY TRIP TO GIBRALTAR

Ashley Sixto Go Pro Gibraltar

For my birthday, Adrian & I decided to take a small day trip to Gibraltar. Since we’ve been here all we have wanted to do is explore new things and places together. I’ve been here before when I was really young, but it was really cool to be able to share this experience with Adrian.

In case you didn’t know (It’s ok, Adrian wasn’t too familiar with it either) Gibraltar is a small British territory at the very south of Spain, about 45 min away from where we live, and it packs so much character. Well to start off, you’ve got to cross an airport landing strip in order to enter the city and the currency is British Pounds. It’s small enough where you can wander aimlessly, get lost, and find yourself back where you started in no time.

We spent the majority of the day not really knowing where the heck we were and meanwhile spotting little cafes to grab a small bite to eat and continue exploring.

The main attraction of Gibraltar is the Rock. Not Dwayne Johnson, even though that would’ve been nice. Inside you can find the beautiful St. Michaels Cave, midway up you can spot 3 different countries: Spain, Africa and British Colony (Gibraltar), but we went up the Rock of Gibraltar with two things in mind: Monkeys & an incredible view and that’s exactly what we got.

If you’ve been following me on instagram, you were able to see that sweet #selfie moment I caught with one of the usual habitants on the rock.

Just on the other side of the rock is the Atlantic Ocean!

In the meantime, I’ll still be putting together content for you (and steal Adrian’s computer when he’s not looking, ha!) & you can check out my “Shop My Style” Page which is constantly being updated with ready to shop links for all products listed…Enjoy!

Hope you all have a great weekend.
