Casual Holiday Style

November 20, 2017

{Outfit Details}
Sweater: H&M (here, on sale for $17.99 now!) // Leggings: Via Spiga (here, LOVE these faux leather leggings for only $26.95, a great deal and they are SO comfy!) // OTK boots: Target (here, $44.99, go up 1/2 a size) // Handbag: Louis Vuitton (here)

Happy Monday, dolls!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic start to the week. I have been busy prepping for a new job (YAY!) and also helping my Mom get ready for our big Thanksgiving meal on Thursday! I am SO excited that Thanksgiving is only THREE days away, and that Black Friday shopping/sales are coming up right after! Speaking of, I am working on some gift guides and also a Black Friday/Cyber Monday shopping guide as well! I love polling y'all on Instagram and appreciate all the feedback for what you're looking for in terms of shopping. Excited to share that later this week!

Ok so on to this casual holiday look. Speaking of polling on Instagram, 66% of y'all voted that you would like to see some casual holiday looks (whereas 34% voted for dressy holiday looks!). I will try to incorporate both in the next few weeks but tonight I wanted to share this look that would be ideal for a casual look on either Thanksgiving Day or for Christmas. I mean you can't go wrong with a red sweater for Christmas. One of my favorite tips for sweaters is to go up a size (I am wearing a size medium here) for a looser fit, that you can wear over leggings! I also love that this sweater fits off-the-shoulder if you go up a size!

I paired my sweater with some of my favorite faux leather leggings that are just under $27! To top of my look, I added my favorite OTK boots from Target...these are seriously the perfect designer dupes for the Stuart Weitzman pair that retail for over $700. I am eyeing the taupe pair next! You could also easily wear flat boots with this look, but I decided while it is "casual" I wanted to dress it up a tiny bit with my OTK heeled boots. This look would be perfect for a Christmas dinner at your family's house.

What is YOUR favorite holiday style!? Leave me a comment and let me know, and stay tuned for some super exciting SALES!!!!



Plaid Dress: Thanksgiving Outfit Inspiration

November 16, 2017

 {Outfit Details}
Dress: H&M (here, only $19.99! Runs TTS, fully in stock in all sizes. Usually H&M runs small but this dress is definitely true to size!) // Cardigan: H&M (here, $29.99. I have worn this SO many times already this season! It goes with so much!) // Belt: Target (here, very versatile) // Boots: Target (my exact pair not online, but I need these here for only $40!!)

Happy Thursday, dolls!

Can y'all believe that Thanksgiving is NEXT week!? I am SO excited as I absolutely LOVE this holiday (not to mention I cannot wait to watch Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade to OFFICIALLY kick off the holiday season! Also as I was typing this post they just had a commercial for the parade....AHHH!!). So back to what I was saying, since T-giving is next week, now is the time to start prepping your Thanksgiving menu (as my Mom and I have been doing this week)...and also your Thanksgiving #ootd!!!

This dress is one of my absolute favorites from my H&M haul a few weeks ago. I thought it would make THE perfect Thanksgiving Day outfit! When I tried it on in the dressing room, I bought it with the upcoming holidays in mind. There is something about plaid that just screams "holidays" to me! GREAT NEWS too, it is available in ALL sizes online right now! Can y'all believe it is just $19.99!? You seriously cannot beat that price, and it is GREAT quality. Besides the adorable green/black checked pattern, they have black/white, light pink/white, and red/black checked....could a dress get any cuter!? Oh wait, it does! This dress has POCKETS as well. Sigh....definitely in love with it!

So I wanted to show y'all a fun way to style it with layering! I am wearing one of my new fave cardigans (also from H&M) that is only $30. This is a great basic to have in your closet...I have worn it countless times already! So to give a bit of shape to this shirt style dress, I added a belt. A good belt is another great staple piece to have in your closet; you will be surprised how many ways you can style it! If you eat too much turkey on Thanksgiving, just take the belt off to give yourself a little more room post-meal! HAHA! See, fashion can be practical too! 

If you order this dress right now, the estimated shipping date is before Thanksgiving! And, H&M is offering FREE SHIPPING on all orders with code 9054!!

I hope y'all are having a wonderful week!!! Also, just wanted to remind you about my event I am hosting tomorrow night at fab'rik from 5-7:30 PM! I'm SO excited to hang out with y'all & I hope to see you there!!!


A Stroll Down Rainbow Row in Charleston

November 13, 2017

{Outfit Details}
Bodysuit: Forever 21 (no longer online, similar here on sale for under $20!) // Skirt: Dillard's (here, a favorite of mine this fall! Also available in navy. $44) // OTK Boots: Target (here, go up 1/2 a size. LOVE these boots. A great value at $44.99) // Belt: Target (here and it's reversible!) // Hat c/o Scala (here, LOVE this hat! So versatile and on trend for fall) // Purse: Vintage from my Mom but love this quilted one here

Hi dolls!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone is having a fabulous start to their week. 

Tonight I'm so excited to share with y'all one of my favorite looks from our trip to Charleston (read more about our trip in this post HERE). We took a stroll down the gorgeous Rainbow Row and it was just as beautiful as the pictures! Rainbow Row is definitely a must-see if you make a trip to Charleston. We enjoyed strolling by the houses and dreaming about how fabulous it would be to live in one of them (also....we had to stop and smell the window box flowers!). 

So for our stroll, I wore one of my favorite skirts this fall (see another way I styled it in this post here) with my new favorite OTK boots from Target. These are seriously a steal under $50! I think I may need the taupe color too!? lol. If you order these, I would go up 1/2 a size. I love these in particular because they are adjustable at the top of the boot with a tie string so they fit your legs better. Also...can we talk about this adorable hat!? These hats are SO in for fall, and I am in love with mine! It's so versatile and I have worn it countless times already. It definitely adds a touch of chic to an outfit....and maybe a touch of "biker chick...." as my next picture will explain....

OK y'all, this seriously happened!!! We were in this cute little alley taking pictures, and all of a sudden we see a motorcycle make a U-turn and head up the street where we are snapping away. We both thought, "oh no! We must be in someone's driveway..." lol. However, we would like to give a big shoutout to Mike with the motorcycle who approached us and asked, "Would you like to use my motorcycle to pose for pictures?" Like seriously, sometimes being a blogger is pretty COOL! Lol! So this guy parked his bike in this alley for me to take pictures with it!!!! What a MEMORABLE time! We will never forget ya, Mike! And I got about as close to a motorcycle as I ever want to be....with it PARKED! lol.

Thanks so much for reading, dolls! Love you guys!


My Sephora Sale Picks

November 10, 2017

This image above is shoppable: hover over and click on the makeup product you would like to see! 

Happy Friday, sweet friends!! 

So today is very exciting if you are a makeup fan! From November 10th through the 15th, Sephora is having a sale for Very Important Beauty (VIB) members and Beauty Insiders. If you have VIB status (which you do if you spend $350 per calendar year), you can use code "20FORVIB" for 20% off your purchase, and for Beauty Insiders (which is FREE to be a member) you can use code "INSIDER15" to get 15% off your purchase. AND, you can use the codes as often as you wish until Nov 15th! Shipping is free when you spend over $50 (which is easy to do when there's so many amazing items!). 

So as requested by my lovely followers on my Instastory poll (follow me on Instagram HERE), I have put together my favorite makeup product picks from the Sephora sale. With either 15% or 20% off, it is THE perfect time to purchase staple items! Keep on reading to see my must-haves....

Ashley's Passion for Fashion Sephora Sale Picks: 
#1. Marc Jacobs Foundation (HERE) - w/ 15% off it is ~$47, w/ 20% off it is $44

Hands-down, without a doubt, this is my FAVORITE foundation. It is full-coverage, which I love, yet it does not "feel" heavy and does not give you that "caked on" look. It gives a smooth, flawless finish! If you talk to anyone who has used this foundation, they may tell you the packaging is prone to leaking. It IS true, but the way to prevent it is to make sure the INNER cap is TIGHTLY secured. Once I started removing the inner cap from the outer cap, I have never had any problems with my foundation leaking. Just a tip! I love it so much, I have it in 2 shades, Ivory (#12) for the fall/winter and Beige Light (#32) for when I have a tan in the summer (or when I use self-tanner). Highly recommend this foundation. 

#2 Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner (HERE) - w/ 15% off it is $19, w/ 20% off it is ~$18 

I have tried SOOO many eyeliners over the years, and this one by Stila is DEFINITELY worth the normal (when not on sale) $22 price tag. It is long-lasting, waterproof (but not hard to remove at night with a makeup wipe), and has the best brush applicator with it. Plus, it comes in 12 colors. My fave = Jet Black.

#3 Tarte Tartelette in Bloom Clay Eyeshadow Palette (HERE) - w/ 15% off it's $39, w/ 20% off it's ~$37 

So, I am here to say that every single one of my Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow palettes has been replaced by this gorgeous Tarte palette! One of my favorite Christian bloggers, Brittany Price Brooker (you can follow her here), always has THE best makeup and I reached out to her to ask about her eyeshadow because it is PERFECT. This is the palette she wears as well! She is SO inspiring and has a heart for the Lord....check out her Instagram page HERE. So, since she recommended it, I have been wearing this palette and I LOVE it. The colors are super pigmented and long-lasting. Perfect eyeshadow 

#4 Bonbon by Viktor & Rolf (HERE) - w/ 15% off it's ~$98, w/ 20% off it's $92

Flower Bomb by Viktor & Rolf has ALWAYS been my favorite perfume. It literally smells amazing. may be replaced with this amazing new scent by Viktor & Rolf called Bonbon. I received a sample of it with one of my orders from Sephora, and it was love at first spritz (HAHA). But seriously, it is AMAZING....and how cute is the bow bottle!? This is on my Christmas wish list and this would make such a perfect gift for the lady in your life, men! 

#5 Becca Pressed Highlighter in Champagne Pop (HERE) - w/ 15% off it's ~$32, w/ 20% off it's ~$30

If you are in the market for a beautiful highlighter for your cheeks, this one is my favorite! It gives you a gorgeous glow when the light catches. I use it on my cheekbones! 

#6 BITE Beauty Matte Crรจme Lip Crayon in Glacรฉ (HERE) - w/ 15% off it's ~$20, w/ 20% off it's ~$19

Y'all! This is my absolute FAVORITE color of lipstick to achieve that perfect nude lip for fall. It is so gorgeous. I use it as a lip liner and an all-over lip color as well. You can pair it with any color gloss over it and it's SERIOUSLY perfect. 

#7 Tarte Foundation brush (HERE) - w/ 15% off it's ~$28, w/ 20% off it's ~$27

This brush is hands down THE best brush for applying foundation. I am in LOVE. The bristles are so soft & it helps achieve that smooth flawless finish. With the discount this weekend, it's under $30! 

#8 Anastasia Brow Wiz Brow Pencil (HERE) - w/ 15% off it's ~$18, w/ 20% off it's ~$17

I am sure y'all have heard of people raving about Anastasia's brow products, and for good reason! This is one of my favorite pencils. I have it in "Blonde" which is perfect since I like my eyebrows to look more natural w/ my hair color (which, surprise, I'm not a natural blonde haha!). This pencil is easy to apply and helps create a natural, fuller brow. With the discount, it's under $20! Worth the money for sure. 

#9 Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick (HERE) - w/ 15% off it's $17, w/ 20% off it's $16. 

Kat Von D makes some of THE prettiest shades of liquid lipstick EVER (44 to be exact!). I fell in love this summer with this lipstick (a gorgeous warm rose color "Berlin") and I think adding a new color to my collection is in order! This goes on SO easily and leaves a long-lasting pigment. Highly recommend!

#10 Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette (HERE) - w/ 15% off it's $29, w/ 20% off it's $27. 

This is seriously your one-stop for blush + bronzer. I absolutely love mine and when I don't have a tan, I use just the blush. When I have a tan, I love adding the bronzer. I have the shade "Naked."

So what are y'all going to get?! Leave me a comment on this post or drop me a line over on Instagram to let me know! As always, if you have ANY questions you can e-mail me at, or feel free to direct message me on Instagram HERE
