Like You Mean It


There are days like these where I wonder how people wear dresses in extreme cold.  Today is probably one of the coldest days all winter (I can see my breath, that is pretty darn cold to me) and I had a hard time taking pictures.  I was trying to look happy but all I could think about was going back inside and enjoying some gingerbread coffee!






Dress- Facebook swap group
Jacket- Forever 21
Tights- H&M
Shoes- UrbanOG
Hat- Old
Belt- Forever 21

I got this dress from a swap group through Facebook.  It's a little overwhelming because there are so many girls with tons of items they want to swap (for keeps), but I've received a few gems through it.  It also gives me a chance to get rid of some things to people who want them.  But to be honest, I should probably stop shopping and swapping for awhile.  With all my Christmas gifts, birthday presents, and gift cards, I'm set for a long time!


P.S. I've entered the Modcloth Dresses for a Year contest.  Please click HERE to vote for me.  I would really appreciate it!


  1. Ha ha. It is really difficult to step out in dis weather.
    But still,all the pictures are stunning!

  2. Now you know why I'm taking photos inside. It's 2 Celcius here today and that is warmer than yesterday.

    You still look great despite being cold. Those colours are great on you.

    I just voted for you girl! : ) I hope you win!!!


  3. The dress you snagged through the swap is so fun! I love the netted's understated but still feminine!

  6. Such a pretty dress! Your hair is amazingggg

  7. The polka dot print is so adorable! And the cold is why I'm usually in pants lately :)

  8. You have such adorable dresses! I don't do too bad in dresses usually - for some reason my legs don't get cold as easily as other bits, probably from prolonged exposure :)
    Wish I could wear heels that high! Well, I could, but I'm 6' already and might break a foot again hahah!

  11. You look adorable! Happy New Year!

  12. This is a great dress, i really love the colour of it on you, perfect with the leather jacket and studded heels. I am just so used to the cold now, I still freeze my buns off sometimes but it seems worth it

  13. Oh Sweetie~~ Really beautiful dress, your shoes rocks are wonderful!


  14. That dress is so SUPER CUTE, and I am LOVING those studded shoes. <3


  15. hey pretty ashley! i don't like how cold it's been in texas lately either. it's supposed to be warm in southern california too, says the girl who was born there. we aren't acclimated to this winter business. ;)

  16. Modcloth style gallery is fooling me. I am hoping the dog dress pops up on your blog soon! I am wearing the same one right now :D That dress is totally adorable too - how awesome!

  24. AND you took your jacket off! You are brave!
    Still, I'm wishing I were there right at this particular moment - it's too hot to function in the southern hemisphere today. as i type, my other hand is holding a spray bottle full of ice water which I periodically have to cover myself with just to not overheat, hahaha.
    Also, looking good ;)
