Well beauties, here we are at my very first post on my very first blog! These past few weeks have been so much fun getting All Things Ashley ready to go. My husband, Christian, has been the biggest help in the world and I’m so grateful for him. If you take a look at my about me you’ll read why I wanted to start this blog in the first place! I can’t wait to share my love and inspiration for all things style, fashion, interiors, travel, food, and family. Your support means more than you know and I am so excited to start this journey with you!!

My husband once said to me before going to dinner “you women are so lucky when it comes to clothing”. Defensively and likely with a snarky tone, I asked him why he thought such a crazy thing to which he responded, “Well because you can throw on a dress and don’t have to match a shirt with pants”. Fair. Very fair point, Christian James.

Chambray Tie-Up Dress // Bow Tennis Shoes // Straw Hat // Gold Watch // Mauve Lip Color  (wearing shade “Patina”)

Where we live it’s 100 or more degrees during the summer, so I have basically been living in dresses like this one from Lulu’s. Chambray, pockets, tie-up top, and comfy all caught my attention with this dress. It’s perfect because you can dress it up with wedges like these or down with a cute pair of tennis shoes/sandals. I chose the ladder for today’s look. I’m a total sucker for anything with a touch of girly or “bows” so these slip-on’s from ZARA were the perfect find! They’re also affordable at only $30. Add a summery hat like this one and voila—done!

So I guess my husband has a fraction of a point. Us girls are pretty lucky that we don’t have to match our top’s and bottoms when we choose dresses like this one. Lets be real though, part of the fun is putting it all together, matching or not 😉 Thank you SO much for checking out my very first blog post. It has been a crazy (and fun) month getting my corner of the internet squared away.

Gotta run, off to help my babe put his clothes together for work tomorrow (oh, the irony).
