Because I Want You


There's only about eight days left of summer and I plan on enjoying every single one of them.  While I'm sure everyone can't wait to wear tights, scarves, and boots, I'm sure they'll be missing the days of bare legs in a few weeks.  I won't be sporting any of the above items until at least late October but I'm pretty sure the flower crown will be retired sooner than that.





Dress- Modcloth (remixed here and here)
Shoes- Forever 21
Flower crown- Forever 21
Belt- From another dress

I haven't worn this Modcloth dress since my pre-pregnancy days.  I was scared because this dress is a little short to begin with and a growing belly just makes it shorter.  Thankfully, the length juuuuuust passed my test.  It will probably make another appearance once that tight weather comes into play again.  

I'm happy to say that my newest rescue Rocco has finally started to adjust to the home.  His social anxiety has almost completely subsided and he's really starting to respond to love.  You never really know what you're going to get when you rescue an older dog but I was more than confident that he would love our family as much as we love him.  I don't know what his past life was like but I'm happy I can provide him a stable and loving home :)

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!




  1. You look so lovely sweetie, love it!! <33


  2. I LOVE that bow belt and your crown--I know I will totally miss warmer weather once it's constantly chilly outside, so I'm definitely enjoying whatever warm weather we may have left!

  3. I love this dress! It looks very cute and very cute over the bump! I'm slowly running out of pre-pregnancy items that still work for me, but I have a few yet. And I'm with you - I'm ready for fall, but not ready to give up my sandals yet!

  4. You look fantastic! This mustard colored dress is such a sweet look on you and it will be perfect for the cooler weather too! Glad to hear Rocco is adjusting to his new loving home!


  5. You look absolutely adorable! The dress really showcases your cute bump :) Happy to hear that Rocco is adjusting well!

  6. Super cute dress :) I love that it is striped, I don't really see a lot of striped clothing in mustard.

  7. super cute! love the belt with the dress! x

  8. !!! YOU look so pretty. I LOVE the mustard. And the fact your baby bump is ever so slightly showing (dresses tend to hide it so much, I learned from a friend of mine). I love your hairpiece too! you look adorable in floral crowns. I cant pull them off.

    Glad to hear the little guy is doing well! Introducing a new pup in the fam can be rough

  9. I love this dress and how it shows off your baby bump. I'm missing warm weather already. I've discovered I really need to invest in some maternity tights because my regular ones are soooo uncomfortable! X

  10. SO happy to hear about your newest doggie and you look lovely as always. Love the stripes on stripes! The colors are definitely Fall appropriate.

  11. So gorgeous! That flower crown and that little adorable belt are perfect!

    You did such a great gesture rescuing Rocco, I wish more people like you existed! :)

  12. Oh Ashley! This might be my favorite look all summer from you (and that is saying something because you are uber stylish!) Also huzzah that your rescue dog is coming to love his new home!

  13. You look ammmazing, love the combination of yellow and pink in this look. Super flattering on you! I must admit I'm excited to layer up, it's been super hot and humid the past couple weeks and I'm so over it
    SO glad to hear Rocco is adjusting well, such a cutiepie :)

  14. You just keep getting cuter and cuter, I'm serious. The combo of yellow and pink and blue in this look is nothing short of dashing!

    Congrats on the doggy! Pets are the best, says the crazy cat lady. :P


  15. The dress is so cute and I can so picture you wearing it with a pair of colorful tights when it gets colder! So glad to hear the dogs doing great, your doing such a good thing for him!!

  16. AWW you are so adorable! <3


  17. You look beautiful hun, love the interesting colour of the dress and the floral crown is so pretty. Hope you have a wonderfully relaxing weekend!

  18. Uh I love the flowered crown trend... I wish I tried that out during this spring/summer. Do you think there's another way to wear one during the winter?
    Hugs & Kisses,

  19. The dress is flattering because of the direction of the stripes. Very smart : )

    It warms my heart knowing you adopted an older dog.


  20. Yellow is so pretty on you and I love the contrast of the shoes and the dress! Also these shoes are wonderful on their own.

  21. I've totally had my eye on this dress on Modcloth! it's striped so I automatically love it, plus the mustard color is so pretty. I'm impressed by how well you're pulling off a non-pregnancy dress!

  22. This look is beautiful! I love the modcloth dress and the floral crown. And the double stripes with the flats is super awesome. So glad to hear that Rocco is starting to adjust:)

  23. I love this dress. I have wanted it for ages!! I adore your flower crown too. The combination of the stripe shoes and dress is genius.

  24. OMG, that little bow belt is seriously the cutest! Love it. And I'm glad to hear that Rocco is adjusting well! He's a lucky pup to have you!

  25. What a cute dress! I love that flower crown too! I'll admit, I'm one of the ones who breaks out my fall clothes as soon as possible, but I'm trying to wear my skirts and dresses while I can without tights!


  26. You look absolutely exquisite, darling! Love this dress on you- yellow is a great color!

    Xo, Hannah
