with flare

Happy Monday, beautiful souls! Today is my handsome hubbies bday so we spent the morning getting breakfast and walking around a bit in the neighborhood with the pup. Nothing elaborate by any means today since we both have to head to work soon but we will celebrate mostly tomorrow! This weekend I snagged my new favorite jeans from Free People and I just cannot get enough of them. The denim has a good amount of stretch to them, which I love (stiff jeans are stressful) and the flare is plucked right from my bohemian dreams. I linked the outfit below, click on the picture of the piece and it will send you right to the item! I hope you all have a wonderful week. with love, ash.

weekend outfit roundup

Brunch + day dates with my favorites= the best way to end the summer. I love both of these outfits for the transition into fall that seems to be taking forever. The dark jeans, cropped button up and booties are amazing for the days when it is a bit cooler but still decently warm. The flowy skirt, body suit and oxford shoes are my favorite recent go to when it’s too warm to honestly think summer is over. I am so excited for next weekend. We are headed north to celebrate one of my favorite humans wedding! I linked all of the pieces pictured in above, below. Gingham Shirt Black Oxford Shoes Similar Metallic Shoes Sending all the positive energy and love to St. Louis. May we love more and hate less. May we live in a world with less injustice and more care for one another. May all find peace. ?utm_source=ashleyrainne.com&utm_medium=blogger&url_from=ashleyrainne

fall is in the air

THE TREES ARE STARTING TO CHANGE. Anyone else obsessed with fall?   I’ve had so many questions about these shoes and I found the link to share them with you guys! AND everything on nastygal.com is 50% off! I had to share, it’s a deal you cannot pass up!   This dress is also on sale at Urban Outfitters for $30, so the entire outfit is a steal and is such a comfy casual, yet cute, outfit. Put a nice cardigan over it once it cools off and it totally fits for fall as well.   I hope everyone is having a wonderful week, I’ll be back here on Friday for a relatonship/marriage Q&A- hit me up with your questions below in the comments!   Links for the outfit: DRESS SHOES

Seasons

I sit here on my new mattress, new bed frame and bedding with a fresh caramel latte candle burning along side of me and I realize how beautiful this life is lately. We had to replace our bed because we found some mold on the frame and secretly I am so happy we found it. I love the newness of fresh sheets, fresh blankets and a change in environment. But this post is not about me getting a new bed because frankly, who cares. It is about the transitioning of self + seasons. Seasons in the context of the weather changing is something that I never knew was something so important to me until we moved to warm climates that do not experience seasons the way the north does. Being a Wisconsin girl has apparently made it incredibly important to me now to have seasons be a part of our environment. There is something about the feeling of starting anew that takes place at the end of summer and beginning of fall, with the crisp air and changing leaves; it brings a sense of grounded coziness to life. This fall I am excited for fresh starts, a change in hair style,…

Purpose + Practice

Earlier this week I travelled to Atlanta for a day-long intensive personal development event for Lululemon. One of the reasons I love working for Lulu is that they care so much about your personal development and have really awesome ways of helping you grow. This day was so meaningful and special. I went alone, did not know a single soul in the city of Atlanta, completely got out of my comfort zone and really took a large amount of clarity away from the day. This whole day was centered around Mindfulosophy which is the new way that Lululemon is approaching their development for employees. It is all about being in the practice of personal development and living a life you love through the power of mindful practices. Now, I really geek out on this stuff so I have been around a lot of different types of conferences, events, meetings, etc. but this one was different. In true Lululemon fashion, it blends ancient yoga philosophy with behavioral science. They “believe mindfulness is the ultimate multiplier for greatness in all aspects of life,” and I could not agree more. We were asked to bring our yoga mat, clothes to do yoga in…
