Wonderful Wasabi

Sarsparilly x Irregular Choice Wonderful Wasabi Dress in Panda Sushi print

Taking a break from all my Halloween content to bring you something kawaii from Sarsparilly!  If you're not familiar with this woman-owned small Australian business, Sarsparilly is dedicated to bringing you all the cute, happy things to your wardrobe.  Once a made to order business, Sarsparilly now offers seasonal collections in sizes XXS-3X.  Their most recent collection is a collaboration with the wonderful, whimsical shoe company: Irregular Choice.  The sushi theme and the adorable collection of dresses, shoes, and accessories is everything you could ever want in a novelty print.  Read more about the Wonderful Wasabi dress below!

The Wonderful Wasabi dress is covered in a panda sushi print and features contrast polka dot puff sleeves, fitted bodice, swing skirt with hidden side pockets, contrasting fabric belt, and a back zippered closure.  I'm wearing a size XS, which is my usual Sarsparilly size.  In my opinion, their products run a full size large.  I would double check those size charts before you order because you will most likely need a size below your usual.  This dress is super comfy and ridiculously cute!  I love that this dress comes in black but you can also grab it in a gorgeous baby blue color.  You can shop this dress and the rest of the Irregular Choice collection on Sarsparilly right now!

Just wanted to let you know that my giveaway ends at 11:59pm PST tonight!  You can win a spooky tee and a collar from two of my favorite small businesses by entering on my blog post HERE.

Autumn Storm

ModCloth x Collectif Squash Farmer Jumper
 
I am all about autumn (even if I won't actually see/feel it until November) because it brings so many great things to my style: plaid prints, boots, layering pieces and my favorite: cozy cardigans.  Luckily, ModCloth has so many great things to transition your wardrobe to cooler weather wears!  I've collaborated with ModCloth to show you some of my picks from their new arrivals and this outfit is one of my favorites.  It has elements of autumn but is light enough for me to wear here in California "fall".  Check out the details on this outfit below and be prepared to see more of my fall picks in the near future!

Two of my favorite brands came together and created a wonderful range of fall and Halloween goodies.  I am absolutely obsessed with this squash farmer jumper and the rest of the ModCloth x Collectif collection!  This jumper features a nice fall plaid with a high waist, large exposed front pockets, a back zippered closure, and adjustable and removable straps.  That's right, the straps come completely off so you can wear it as a regular skirt!  I'm wearing a size UK10, which is a size bigger than my usual Collectif size.  Since this is a collaboration, the size chart is different and I went with a size up.  I think I could have stuck with my usual size, but it was a nice and comfy fit so I'm happy with it.  My suggestion is to take a second look at that size chart before you order!

I paired my skirt with this amazing thunderbolt print blouse, leopard print scrunchie, and platform heels for a bit of print mixing.  I feel like I used to mix prints a lot when I first started this blog and it was about time to bring it back!  I can see myself wearing this outfit to a job or even to a girl's brunch (if we were leaving the house).  You can find all of these pieces on ModCloth right now and make sure to check out their entire fall collection for all your transitional seasonal needs!

You've Been Ghosted

Modcloth You've Been Ghosted Faire Isle Sweater
 
Well, California is currently on fire so I haven't spent much time out of my home due to the poor air quality.  It's been hard to keep positive these days, and while I'd love to write a whole long-winded blog post why, I'll spare you the details.  Because let's be honest: I think we're all struggling in our own ways, right?  One thing that keeps me feeling good and like myself is getting dressed every single day, even if I don't leave the house.  It makes such a difference!  This outfit definitely sparked some much needed joy so I had to share it with you too.

Socks- SHEIN

This ghost sweater from Modcloth has become quite infamous because it sold out SO FAST.  I was lucky enough to snag one but don't fret: it's being restocked!  I received word from Modcloth directly that they will be bringing it back before Halloween.  While I don't know exactly when, be sure to get yourself on the waitlist so you'll be one of the first to know.  I'm wearing my usual Modcloth size small and it has a nice, slouchy fit.  I could have sized down but I like my sweaters to be on the roomier side so I can layer if the mood strikes.

I decided to pair this ghost sweater with the ghost stripe swing skirt from Collectif because girl loves a theme!  Collectif just launched their Halloween collection and I have already ordered so many pieces.  It's so good!  This skirt has huge hidden side pockets and a back zippered closure.  I'm wearing my usual skirt size, UK8, and I think it's the perfect fit.  I tend to order a UK10 in their tops and dresses, but only because I have a bigger bust.  I think this skirt will look perfectly dressed down with my many (MANY) Halloween tees as well.

You can shop the Modcloth Halloween collection HERE and the Collectif Halloween collection HERE.  And if you don't already know, Modcloth and Collectif have a collaborative collection too, which you can shop HERE!  If you're shopping directly with Modcloth, you can take 15% off your total order with my coupon code ModAshley15!
