3 Ways To Slay | Concert Inspiration

I'll be going to my first concert this month and I'm in need of a little OOTD inspiration! I'm not sure what the temperature will be like so I'll be sure to layer -in a stylish manner of course. I decided to style three different looks from my favorite stores, H&M and Zara choosing my favorite look to actually wear to the event by working with pieces I already own.

LOOK #1





LOOK #2


Mohair Blend Sweater





LOOK #3



V-Neck Blouse


Jeans

Fringed Moccasins


Which is your favorite look?

Falling In Orange

Motivating myself and getting a head start on my Monday is by posting to my blog and planning out my week. Staying one step ahead of myself is the key to a successful week. So I set my alarm for 5am!

After getting some things done I spent some time with my mom. It was very windy and in the low 60s today so I grabbed my orange sweatshirt and my favorite pair of slacks in tan. I find that the two go very well together and decided to pair them with something odd, my polka dot Nike Cortez. Deciding to keep it simple with my gold Michael Kors watch.

City Girl Vibes

I love the girl living in the city with somewhere to go, style. The beginning of The Devil Wears Prada always gives me life.  Women in a rush out the door to start their day -in style of course! And who can forget the most stylish TV series to date? Sex In The City! Different women, different backgrounds, living the city life in style. That city girl vibe is my fashion inspiration. I want to take that "girl" and add my on flavor to it!

Down below shop the stylish relaxed city girl look I put together!








What's your style inspiration this Fall?!

OOTD | The Blazer

Well hello Fall! 

It was 50 degrees here in Texas today, and as cold as I was the style addict within jumped for joy! I mean who doesn't just love Fall?! 

It's time to pull out the blazers, sweaters, hoodies, boots, and oversized coats (screams inside). Today I pulled out my favorite blazer by Kasper and paired it with a pair of jeans -the classic comfy go to for Fall. And the loafer of course because we live in Texas which means it didn't stay cold for long. 






Are you as excited about Fall as I am?!

New In | Currently Reading



Just in time for Halloween I picked up my copy of the second novel of 'Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children' by Ransom Riggs. I read 'Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children' a while back before watching the 2016 film directed by Tim Burton. Before reading I always have to set the mood with a candle (Moonlit Pumpkin) and something to drink (Chai Tea Latte iced).

Self Care Sunday | Mario Badescu

After a long day I cleanse my face with L'Oreal pure clay. After cleansing my skin I use my Mario Badescu skin care facial spray with Aloe and more! Skin care causes dryness at times and Mario's rosewater is perfect for breathing life back into your skin. 



How was your Sunday?

Whole Blends Line




After wearing the same hair style I decided to switch it up a bit -going for a longer look. A couple days ago I made the transition from wearing a sew-in (protective style) to my natural short hair. As much as I enjoyed waking up in the morning with one less thing to do (my hair), I started missing my short hairdo. I missed shopping for new products, the feeling of freshly washed hair, and most of all expressing myself through my hair!

After taking my weave out I instantly reached for my favorite line to wash and condition my hair - Honey Treasure by Whole Blends. Whole Blends is an effective line that's really easy on your pockets. I love when companies create a line that actually works well and its affordable! Normally I'd go for a leave in (because I'm lazy) but I decided to go with this repairing wash out conditioner. Honey Treasure has royal jelly, honey, propolis extracts assisting in strengthening and healing damaged hair. Oh and might I add it smells awesome!



What's your favorite hair care line?

Ashley G for Blue Sky Planner

Some people like typing out a to do list and scheduling the days tasks on their phone, but for me an actual planner and pen are essential. I feel lost, unprepared and overwhelmed when I don't have my handy dandy planner to refer to. 

For months I've been at a lost, running around with my head cut off because I didn't have my planner. Before I tell you why I was without let me explain my love for notebooks and pens. Let's just say, to keep it short, the stationary section in Target makes me so happy! I didn't have my planner because it was ruined when our ice bag leaked in our car. Me being slightly dramatic I just had to have a new one! 

I carefully browsed through all the planners at Target to be sure I found the right one for me. The Ashley G for Blue Sky 2017-2018 planner caught my eye despite being a bit different than what I'm used to. I'm currently sitting at my dining room table watching 'Monster House' while updating my brand new planner.


What do you prefer your cell phone or a planner?

Rihanna for Elle

A Fall magazine, red lip, and a pink purse are a few of my Fall favorites. Heading to the store to pick up an Elle magazine is such a good feeling.  I've had my eye on the Rihanna cover and finally made my way to the store to pick one up.

Ever since liquid lipstick arrived on the scene I've been obsessed. I can't remember the last time I wore lipstick? Going back to an old favorite is exciting! 

Red and pink are my two favorite colors to pair together this Fall. So excited to wear my pink bag with some red shades. 


What are some of your Fall favorites?

OOTD | Converse Meets Slacks

If you've read my previous post I mentioned one of my favorite styles (Converse paired with anything other than a pair of jeans) while showing you all an example of I meant. I mean Converse are a classic that has been around for years and we've normally only seen them styled one way.

Down below I decided to pull out my black and white high top Converse to show you guys how I like to style them. I went with a pair of black slacks, a burgundy sweat shirt with a deep pink Christian Siriano bag draped across.

This look is perfect for going out with the girls after work! The slacks say office while the Converse says out on the town. Be sure to add a few pieces of jewelry to your look and you're all set. I went with a bit of gold to bring out the gold accents on my bag.

Styling Converse


One of my favorite styles (that I'm surprised I don't see much of) is pairing Converse with something other than a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. As most of you may know I love seeing things styled together that's outside of the norm. Down below I styled a pair of black and white Converse with a pair of faux leather pants with an oversized sweater, perfect for Fall!

YouTube | "Vlog"



Usually my Sunday posts are about self care but today's conversation is going in a different direction. Let's talk Vlog's! My favorite thing to watch on YouTube are Vlog's. People going through their everyday lives and bringing you along with them is always fun to watch. 

About a year ago I decided to go ahead and give vlogging a try. Whenever I went out the camera went too! I went on being unfulfilled and unsatisfied. 

Making normal, "I'm on my way out the door.", "look what I did today." videos aren't my cup of tea.. or glass of wine for that matter . That wasn't enough for me and knowing I'm surrounded by inspiration I needed to take a step back and really think of the content I wanted to create. 

I want my videos to be inspiring, to tell a story, touch someone, to be peaceful -a form of art. 

My "vlogs" aka short films are going be short and sweet moments of a certain point in my day. Today I uploaded my first video entitled "A Story" (which is what all my vlogs will be called). 

Anyone can pick up a camera and click record, but I'm not that person -I MUST create.

Christian Siriano | Bag


Black and white is a winner right? I mean it works for summer and fall. As some of you may know by now I'm in the process of updating my bag collection -and trust me it's in desperate need! I mostly had black bags before adding a bit of color. Down below is the gorgeous black and white bag by Christian Siriano. This is the perfect bag when you calmly want to make a statement.

The Hot Bag | OOTD

How is it Monday already? How did my vacation fly by?! I'm not ready to go back to work tomorrow but I'm going to stay positive and be productive this week (have to keep those GOALS in mind). Remember not to get so caught up in where you're at in life at the moment, but where you're going! To those with the Monday blues like me, know that whatever has you blue is a stepping stone to where you're trying to go. 

Down below I styled a look around my favorite pair of slacks and added a touch of color with my new Christian Siriano bag.
