Well, hello there!

Hi everyone!  Today when I opened my mailbox it smelled like roses, so lovely!  Inside was the gift from Ella Pretty's recent 100 follower giveaway.  Thank you so much, Ella.  I will really enjoy these items!


I've been loving my Alex espadrilles recently.  They are pretty high and definitely get a lot of attention.



This is how the height of the Alex compares to my Michael Kors espadrilles that I wore the heck out of last summer.  I have to be careful to not break my ankles in the new shoes... but they are so fabulous!!  :)  Nathan said they were "sexy shoes."  Duh, husband! ;-)


I love, love, love this top from Ann Taylor.  It was a recent purchase during their 40% off F&F sale.  It looks good both casual & more dressed up and the color is beautiful, unlike anything I have in my closet.


Leopard print... need I say more?  Bought this during the same sale citing no snow leopard in my wardrobe.  ;-)


These two skirts are on my current lust list, both from J.Crew.  I need more professional clothing since I will be doing two days a week at an OB/GYN office this summer as I work toward my FNP.

Love the eyelet detail of this one.

And how gorgeous is this peacock color?  I may need to stop by J.Crew after work this week!


I'm a little nervous about working two days at the OB/GYN for clinicals, hanging onto my FT gig and all of the paperwork for school... but I know when summer is through I will be so thankful to be that much closer to graduating next spring!  What are yall looking forward to this summer? 

xo, ashley

  1. Yay - I'm so glad the package arrived safely - I was a bit worried with customs and the fact that there are all sorts of cross-border rules for shipping perfumes!

    Love the espadrilles - but the height would scare me - I've got very wobbly ankles. The j.crew skirts look great - I think they'd be a great work-wear investment. Good lucky with all the work you've got to do :-)

  8. Hey girl! Did you know you're a "noreply" blogger? I realized this after I typed up a response to your comment about those Cole Haans haha! I think I also sent you an email in the past about Tory Burch Revas without realizing you're email wasn't paired up! Just wanted to let you know in case you didn't realize (:
