Ashley Goes to Prep School

Gossip Girl is back on today and I’m extremely ecstatic. Yes, it’s one of my favorite shows. Sometimes, I secretly wish I was a NYC Socialite parading the town in my fancy shmancy heels and outfits that cost a fortune. But instead I live vicariously through the lives of Manhattan’s elite in the comfort of my friends house drinking wine, sharing funny stories, and catching up…all while wearing this.

bold colors, animal and floral prints, and black and whites.

Oh, the typical description of most things inhabiting my closet space. And after this week, the percentage only increases. Need to do some “spring cleaning” soon to make some space. Be excited…this only means I’ll probably be selling some of my closet and it’s your chance to have a piece of me in your life. Lovely, I promise. Here’s a few things I picked up this week that will make me closer to being a broke city chick.

recent purchases

H&M Belt, Pants, Blouse, and Flower Pin. Zara Heels. Forever 21 B/W Trench.

Breaking the Rules.

top: H&M. jeans: H&M. shoes: Urban Outfitters c/o my beautiful friend Andrea. sunglasses: Karen Walker. accessories: Michael Kors watch, Forever 21 cuff.

In honor of the beginning of Spring, I decided to break the “rules” of the don’t wear white after Labor Day. Yeah, whatever. I live in Miami and the weather here is always tropical, so it’s hard to stop yourself from not wanting to wear your whites. It’s crisp, clean (unless you have the same tendency that I do to somehow dirty yourself), and fun because you have so much opportunity to give the outfit some personality. Like I did here, with these adorable snake loafers. If it’s not the shoes, it’s the accessories too. Check out 3 other ways I would pair the all white look with:

white top & pants

Look #1
ASOS Sunglasses
Steven by Steve Madden Crossbody Bag (This is my “steal” version of the Cambridge Satchel)
ASOS Floral Print Loafers

Look #2
ASOS Croc Laptop Case (Twofer: I would so use this as a clutch too!)
Nine West Heels

Look #3
MAC Lipstick
Jessica Simpson Wedges

Go ahead, give it a try. Break the rules & embrace it!

Didi has made an appearance.

dress: Forever 21 (sold out, but this one is next on my list). belt: Forever 21. sneakers: Converse (I really want these here & here). arm candy: Silver/Blue bangle (old), Forever 21 Hex Nut bracelet (old), Lauren Elan Misel Bracelet, G-Shock Watch, David Yurman Bracelet. sunglasses: Forever 21.

That dog assistant/best friend/daughter of mine makes my days very bright and full of laughter. Apparently, she would like to add “model” to the aforementioned list. Oh, Didi

I’m not sure if you can tell much of a difference, but I did add a cellophane treatment to my hair just recently to add a bit of a red tone. I’ve been wanting to do something different with my hair, but I’m taking baby steps towards my current hair color obsession. Many have told me I’m a bit crazy for wanting this change, but I might take the plunge and go for it right after graduation. I mean…it is just hair.

Here’s what has my attention these days. What are your thoughts?
