I know just about everyone is starting to transition to their cozy fall sweaters and blanket scarves (and I’m oh so jealous), but it’s still 100 degrees in Phoenix! So in the mean time, I’ll be wearing two-piece sets like this one!
When I saw this adorable set from SheIn, I knew I had to have it because 1) stripes, 2) ruffles + a bow, and 3) only $15 for the top AND shorts!
Am I the only one who is loving clothing that sort of looks like pajamas?? Didn’t think so… 😉 that’s a trend I can get behind. I wore this set when we were in Rome (post on that coming soon!) and it was SO comfortable, just like PJ’s. I ended up throwing a cardigan over it at night (not pictured, but linked) when it cooled off.

So I guess if you live in warmer climates (or should I say “you can fry an egg on the sidewalk because it’s so dang hot” climates) like me, then you’re probably still rocking outfits like these too! Personally, I think you should rock this one. Maybe I’m biased 🙂
What’s one thing I love more than Taco Bell?? Trick question…I don’t love anything more than Taco Bell. Well, Maybe my husband 😉 What’s one thing that’s a close second to Taco Bell? A good deal on clothing that can be worn multiple ways. A piece that has more than one style is always a bargain because you are basically getting several outfits for the price of one!
Lucky for you (and me) I’m sharing this adorable romper I bought from Four Sisters Boutique —a boutique near home in Nebraska. I styled it 3 different ways as pictured below!
- Sleeves tied as a bow in the front-seriously how fun? You just take the sleeves off your shoulders and tie a knot in the front.
- Sleeves tied in the back– same thing as the bow in front, but in back. I know, mind blowing!!
- Off the shoulder long sleeves-the way it was designed. Clearly I’m a rule-breaker with the styles above.
I was just playing dress up and messing around with these adorable sleeves solely to be silly and realized “oh!! I actually dig this” Hopefully you can use these little tricks for any off the shoulder gems hanging in your closet. Or maybe you’ll just have to order this one!
When I was in college and lived in my sorority house (Delta Gamma), I had these hot pink, satin sheets. I’m talking like the most ridiculous bedding ever! All the girls used to laugh and say “ohh that’s so Ashley”. Then I went on to pick out a satin wedding dress, which I hope to post about on here someday! I promise my wedding dress was much classier than my pink, satin sheets. Anyway, if you couldn’t tell, I totally have a thing for satin. It’s so girly, feminine, and pretty.
This satin maxi from Lulu’s is perfect for an end-of-summer wedding, date night, or you could even dress it up for an upscale event like a fundraiser. I wore it to a good friends wedding back in Nebraska this summer and received so many compliments. I’m sure you’ve picked up on the fact that I love comfy shoes, so that’s why I chose to wear my “go-to” Steve Madden wedges. These are affordable and go with just about everything. And finally, to top off the look I added some fun earrings! These SUGARFIX (by BaubleBar) earrings were only $13 from Target. Seriously, there is nothing Target can’t do or fix… I’m sure there’ll be a post on that later 😉

So at the end of the day, if something as simple as satin makes you happy and feel fab, GO FOR IT! I hope y’all are having a great weekend so far. Everyday I’m amazed at the support and love I receive about All Things Ashley. Thanks for reading and happy shopping!
How is it already August!? I don’t know about you, but this year has flown by! Time is a funny, funny thing. Since the days, months, and years seem to speed by more quickly as I get older I like to buy clothes that are great for all types of weather, all year long.
For today’s outfit, I chose a few neutral-colored items that are easy to pair and can be worn most of the year. I love putting staples together like this adorable white top, shorts, and shoes. This top is perfect for that year-round look because it’s not a tank, not quite short sleeves, but just right for any temperature. It’s so flow-y and comfy (FYI it also comes in navy)! You can dress it with shorts like I did or jeans and a jacket when the weather cools off (please God let that happen sooner than later here in AZ). These grey, open-toe booties I just had to have because they’re a staple that can be worn almost year round. Seriously, aren’t they cute?? They too are very comfortable which is huge for this girl! I plan to pair them with jeans and dresses also.

Staples with a little extra detail create a timeless look that can be worn all year round! Although I do hope this year SLOWS DOWN at least I know I have a few items to wear this fall from the summer!
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.

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).
