Keeping It Casual


I didn't realize until I started writing this post that everything I'm wearing is currently on sale.  I in no way planned this, but again, I feel a sense of pride when I can look nice without breaking the bank.  You may not know it but Christmas will be here in no time!







Shoes- Urban OG (on sale too!)
Jewelry- Forever 21

If I haven't mentioned it before, I am a Christmas baby.  Not a December 26th baby (like my youngest brother) but literally on December 25th.  People always ask me how I feel about being born on Christmas.  My answer is always, "Well, I don't know what it's like to have a birthday on any other day, so I guess pretty normal."  

What I do know is that I'm always stressed around this time of year because buying presents for a very big family can make me go nuts.  I try to get my shopping going around October, but I always wait until last minute because the sales are just too good to pass up!  This year I swear I'm going to get it done before December is even here.  Not only will I keep to my word because I want a stress free birthday, but because I actually have this in writing and you guys to back me up :)

xoxo

Ashley

  6. you look a lot like zooey deschanel, especially in that first photo, today. and i love it - the colors i think are making me think that. i love bright colors like that. and my brother is a 26th baby and he hates it because people combine birthday and christmas gifts (this was more a problem when he was younger)

  7. That top is so cute with all the little ruffle details! My hubby's birthday is Dec. 18 and it's always so hard for me to think of birthday gifts AND Christmas gifts for him. Have a great weekend, Ashley!

    PS Thanks SO much for becoming a sponsor, I'm excited to work with you!

    And wow. You really are a Christmas baby! Do you ever get tired of hearing how feels to have your birthday near such a big holiday? My co-worker's daughter was born around that time and she just loves getting presents (she's 7). =)

  18. I would never put this outfit together because I'm not a fan of that cut of pants or wedges, but I LOVE the color combination here, your wedges are winning me over because they're blue suede, and you look like you're confidently rocking this outfit, so... who cares what I would do? (:
