pretty little top

   Happy Friday! Today is going to be such a great day. It will be filled with photoshoots, fancy dinners and wine, so who could complain? Teddy is taking me out tonight for my birthday since it lands on Tuesday and he has school. Tomorrow we are going to see The Lumineers play and I CANNOT wait! Needless to say, I am getting a pretty amazing birthday week. Last night was our holiday party for Lululemon and it was a blast! It’s easy to have fun when you work with incredible humans. I wore this little outfit and can not get over this top. It was $15 and so cute and light I will likely over-wear this one. I love when you actually find a good piece at Forever 21 since it can get quite overwhelming navigating through the huge selection they have. I paired it with this white skirt that I found at J.Crew ages ago (tagged similar below) to brighten the outfit and finished with these over-the-knee boots that I found on sale at Nordstrom Rack! I hope everyone has a fun weekend! XO-ash

ice storm

                           I could not wait to upload these pictures because of the way the ice created a beautiful layer on the trees and what an amazing job Teddy did at capturing it. We woke up and were going to take Z on a walk but instead had to run to get some pictures before it all melted because it was spectacular! (Btw- Z got her walk in, she wasn’t left hanging.) The night before we were warned not to go out due to the weather so we stayed in, watched movies and made the best vegan tacos I’ve ever tasted. It was all-around not too shabby to have this little storm hit the folks of St. Louis, we made the best out of it. Last night I got a glass of wine with a beautiful friend and we connected on vulnerability, learning about yourself/the people around you and the visions we have for our lives. I always find it so powerful to connect with someone who gets where you are in life and what you want to make of it. It is hard for me, at times, to get clear on what I want but…

slow days

It’s Friday! There is an ice storm hitting St. Louis today leaving us to stay inside due to slick roads and freezing temps and honestly, I’m not that mad about it. We have both been working from home today, snuggling with Z and listening to records on repeat. Teddy got me this record player for Christmas this year and I am beyond obsessed. Not only does it set a certain type of mood to actually play a vinyl record instead of Spotify but it also has been so much fun going to record stores and hunting for tunes that will fill the entire apartment with love and bliss. I have been obsessed with The Civil Wars for years and am bummed they are done making music but super happy that I found their album! I love days like these. The slow nature of them along with the unexpected productivity that comes about when you have a free mind to do whatever you please. There is magic in these days. I hope that everyone has a safe and happy Friday. Stay warm <3 xo-ash

fluffy jacket

               Z always comes with us to shoot and is so adorable while she waits. (Sometimes she will bark at us though- not so adorable) Welcome to Wednesday! Instead of a Wandering Wishlist this week I decided to feature this amazing jacket I picked up from Shop Jessa Kae. I have been crushing hard on all of the fluffy jackets that have been all over my Instagram feed lately and had to pick one up for myself. So far this week has been really amazing for me. I have been focusing on making decisions for myself and for things that are better in line with the vision of my life. It felt like a huge weight off my shoulders to finally say, “this is what I want and this is what I’m going to do about it.” I think so often we get caught up in what we think is best based off of the circumstances around us instead of listening to what we truly want. I have been thinking for years now of starting to vlog on YouTube and I think that now is the time I am going to finally start. I just never want…

tie up knit

   Happy Sunday, my loves! I love Sundays. Is anyone else with me on that? I love the slowness, the time to unwind and recharge before another busy week and the aura that Sunday always carries. Today we are going to be getting caught up on work (and blogs, yay!) shooting some new outfits and most likely reading, a lot. I am still slowly making my way through “Ask and It Is Given,” and loving the practice of waking up or winding down with that in hand. It is a good reminder to connect with my true self and true intentions for life every single day. I have been working on staying in my own lane lately and not comparing myself to others and it really has been making a big difference in how I feel. It is time that we embrace our insecurities and the things that make us feel inadequate and we step into the life we were meant to live. There are so many things that I want to improve upon in my little slice of the internet on this blog but I have to have patience and know that it will come. I think when we…
