Try a Trend: Sleeveless Blazer Vest

IMG_1382Morning Everyone!! Happy Wednesday. I hope everyone is having a good week so far. I know it was nice having that long three day weekend and sometimes getting back into the groove of the workplace can be challenging. Today on the ASW I would like to share with you all an item that I have been crushing on for about a month now and I finally found one in my price range. The sleeveless blazer vest! This item is so trendy and is perfect for spring and summer months when you want to jazz up an outfit but you do not want to wear that good ole’ long sleeve blazer. I particularly like the tone of it since I can wear it with more colorful pieces.

IMG_1240 Happy Friday Loves!! So I found this cute dress a few weeks back at Forever 21. I rarely shop there for clothing nowadays only because I always feel overwhelmed with all the clothing. Especially in the larger stores. I have been wanting a go to casual dress so I was happy to have found it in a pretty color and at an affordable price! IMG_1245IMG_1247IMG_1249Photo Credit: Lauren SimmonsIMG_1251Dress: Forever 21 (Similar)/Gladiators: (Here)/Purse: Gift/Sunnies: Kate Spade (old)/Necklaces: H&M IMG_1270

I have been looking for a pair of gladiator sandals for a year now. As a graduation gift, my sister purchased these for me from one of my favorite shoe stores, DSW! They are comfortable and light. They go perfectly with mini dresses, shorts and skirts. I have worn them a couple of times and these will be my go to shoes for the summer.

IMG_0372HELLLOOOO Everyone!! It has been such a long time since I have done a blog post! This past year and a half has been quite busy yet exciting for me! When I started graduate school last January I knew that a lot would change but I did not think that I would neglect ASW as much as I have done in these past 15 months! Recently, I purchased my very own DSLR camera and I love it. My plan is to post twice a week on ASW and more often through my social media platforms. So if you have not subscribed to my blog make sure that you do so you can keep up with my weekly posts.

In other news, I will be graduating next month on April 30th and I am ready for the next chapter in my life. My Master’s degree will be in Higher Education Leadership where I will serve as an administrator at a university or college. Currently, I am in the process of applying for jobs and my plan is to leave sunny south Florida. I will surely keep you posted on my job search!

IMG_0389Since Spring is here I thought it would be fitting for me to wear this lovely long-sleeve mini dress that I picked up from my favorite store Zara a few months back. I love this dress because of its versatility. I can wear it to brunch with the girls or at a night time event.

Hello Everyone!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! We are approaching the last week in January and I am wondering if you all have been sticking to your New Year Resolutions. We all may have our doubts about creating resolutions because most of the time the list is not followed through. Below is a picture of my alarm app and each day I get up at 7:45am to run before I go to work. I put the message as a reminder of why I am waking up earlier than I have to in order to achieve the results that I want in 2015.

One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to continue to work out on a regular basis. It is very easy to get distracted with work, school, life, family that you forget to take care of yourself. As a POPSUGAR Select Blogger, I was given the opportunity to pick out an active wear outfit from Target® C9 collection. I do enjoy working out so why not looked great doing it? The Target® C9 collection has an array of athletic wear that appeals to all shapes, sizes, and personalities.

As I stated earlier, it is important to create New Year’s Resolutions and also stick with them. It is very possible to accomplish a myriad of goals in twelve months. I hope that you all will take into consideration what I shared and follow through with your resolutions.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

The Wedding Ringer

Hello Everyone!!

I hope everyone’s year has gotten off to a great start! So by now the majority of us have attended weddings and bachelorette/bachelor parties that have been tons of fun or quite boring. Within the past couple of years I have attended numerous bachelorette parties but my favorite one would have to be when one of my good friends got married in Vegas. Myself (Maid of Honor), the Matron of Honor and other bridesmaids planned a night of fun by attending dinner, a male review, and clubbing at Club Tao.

We had so much fun and did a crazy amount of walking where we had to take breaks at each stop because our feet were hurting so badly. By the time we made it to the club we were through and could not take it anymore and luckily they were giving away flip flops to those who were leaving the club. Sounds like a win right? For some of us who were a size 6 it was great but for those who have larger feet they had to deal with their feet hanging off the back of the flip-flops. At that point everyone was tired and ready to go home but we were so thankful for those flip-flops because who knows what would have happened to us had we not been given those shoes to walk in.

As a POPSUGAR Select blogger, I was asked to participate in the promotion of The Wedding Ringer movie that is set to hit theaters January 16, 2015! The trailer for this film has been played several times on television throughout the past month and looks hilarious. Josh Gad stars as Doug Harris, a loveable but socially awkward groom-to-be with a problem: he has no best man. Doug really wants everything to be perfect since he is set to marry the girl of his dreams Gretchen Palmer (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting).

He is then referred to Kevin Hart (famous comedian, actor, writer and producer) who stars as Jimmy Callahan, CEO of Best Man, Inc. a company that provides flattering best men for socially challenged guys in need. What ensues is a hilarious wedding charade as they try to pull off the big con, and an unexpected budding bromance between Doug and his fake best man Jimmy.

I hope you all are just as excited as I am to see this movie and feel free to share your thoughts on the movie once you see it!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

With Love,

Ashley
