My Favorite Accessory

The Cotton Club camo sweater {similar here} | Frame ripped denim | ZARA fur scarf {similar style} | Nine West booties {similar style} | Wristology watch  | The Peach Box pearl bracelet  | Brenda Grands pink tassel bracelet

Happy Monday! I hope you had a fantastic holiday. 

My grandma has been telling me that I should have my sweet Safari in more of my blog posts/photos, and I figured, she's right. I'm sure every dog owner says this, but I definitely think she's the cutest thing ever. She's lucky she's a mama's girl because she gets away with all her mischievousness and craziness! She definitely was not happy when we were taking these photos. You should see some of the ones that didn't make the cut - she was giving me the stink eye the whole time. Haha.

You know I love my accessories, and of course Safari is my favorite one. Another accessory I've been crushing on lately is watches. I have been all about adding a lot of fashion watches to my collection. This gold and black watch from Wristology is perfect for the winter season, and I love the over-sized 'boyfriend' style. All their watches are only $49, so it's definitely tempting to buy a few. For the price, the quality is great, and they have so many different styles to choose from and it arrives in the cutest black and white polka dot case. Wristology Watches is offering my readers 20% off your order with promo code: ashleyn20. What better excuse to gift yourself or someone else one this holiday season.

Holiday Gift Guide: Comfy Cozy Edition

Happy Thanksgiving, friends!

I don't know about you, but there is nothing better than pajamas during the holidays. Every year since I can remember, our grandmother has always bought us fuzzy socks and pajama sets for Christmas, so it comes as no surprise that comfy lounge wear has become synonymous with holidays in our household.

I've tracked down the best socks, slippers, bathrobes, pj's and blankets for you this holiday season. You definitely don't want to miss out on some of these items! I'm vying for the plush leopard print blanket - definitely on my gift list for Santa! 

Buying is as easy as 1, 2, 3. Simply scroll through the slideshow below and click on the item. If you are having an issue viewing the slideshow below (sorry, fixing the kinks as we speak), just head to

I hope you have a fantastic day with the ones you love. There are always so many things to be thankful for, and this year is no exception. I'm truly blessed to have a beautiful, healthy, loving family, a wonderful and supportive fiance, and great, true friends. A big thanks to you for following along and being part of my journey, as well - it means so much to me.

The Perfect Sweater for Holiday Travel

Happy Thanksgiving eve, everyone! 

I hope you're preparing your belly for tomorrow's feast. I must admit, I'm actually not a huge fan of turkey. I'm not sure what it is, but its just never been a favorite of mine. I know, I probably will be cursed for saying it, but that doesn't mean I don't love Thanksgiving. What's not to love?! From the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade (highlight of my day!), to eating sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce and gravy, and of course, watching football, it's a day of fun, family and laziness! 

Whether your'e staying put for the holidays, or taking a plane, train or automobile to your destination, traveling in style (and comfort) is always a must. This outfit has been on repeat lately, especially since the weather has finally gotten colder here in Texas. I can't get enough of the pops of yellow in this sweater from SheIn. Can you believe that it cost less than $30?! Chic, and budget friendly. Sweaters, especially cardigans, are perfect for travel because you can layer them. You never know if you'll be too hot or too cold, so they're very practical. I also love having a scarf on hand as well, because it makes a great blanket or pillow. This outfit is just what the doctor ordered if you need to hit the ground running when you arrive at your final destination - they definitely won't be thinking that you've been traveling all day. 

I'm obsessed with these gorgeous necklaces from Texas designer, Brenda Grands. All pieces are handmade here in Houston, and every product has gemstones that have been carefully selected by the designer from around the world. Also, every item is 14k gold-filled, The price point is insanely reasonable, with nothing over $150. Order now and receive 25% off, when you shop Brenda Grands entire collection using promo code: ashleynstyle. Bonus: Head to Instagram for a chance to win your choice of either the Sophie or Eudora necklace that I'm wearing above - you'll find out all the details on how to enter once you're there:)

Being the Perfect Hostess

David Peck dress {similar style} | Topshop necklace {here & here

It's that time of year. Whether you're hosting your friends or family for Thanksgiving, have the in-laws traveling in for Christmas, or are hosting your boyfriend/husband's best friend and his family for other holiday festivities, you are going to want to be the perfect hostess. From how to create the perfect tablescape, to making them feel at home, I've got you covered.

1. Create and atmosphere that's inviting. Whether it's moving around furniture to make it more conducive to entertaining, or making extra counter space in the guest bathroom, be sure to do your prep work before your guests arrive. There's nothing worse than having them arrive and being unprepared. If this happens, they'll end up feeling like they're imposing on your time and your space. Also, remember you are sharing your house, so even if it's people you know really well, or are just getting acquainted with, nothing is off limits (i.e., if there's something you don't want them to touch, see, or sit on, put it away beforehand). 

2. Make them feel at home. Think of the necessities that people need when staying somewhere. I often like to think about what amenities hotels provide when I'm preparing for a guest. Men are a little easier than women, as they don't require as much, but I'd rather have too much to offer my guests than too little. For example, I'm a bathrobe junkie, so I love having a bathrobe on hand when a guest comes into town. Toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and plenty of towels are must-have's too. Having a spare blow dryer is always great and extra blankets (for the bed and to cozy up with).  When in doubt, consider what you wish you had when you're at someone else's home. Even if you think you provided them with everything under the sun, make sure to check-in and see if there's anything else they need. At the end of the day, respect their privacy. I don't think anyone loves staying at other people's houses, so whether they want to do an activity alone, or decide to sleep in until 11am, be respectful. 

3. Do your homework. Do your guests have food allergies, is there something they do not eat, is there something they love to eat that you want to have on hand...all these are great things to know when hosting. Depending on the degree of closeness, you probably already know the answer to these questions. However, if your guests are newer friends or new to the family, there's nothing wrong with tactfully writing an email or having a simple phone call with them ahead of time. You can start by telling them how thrilled you are they are coming, and then go into what you're preparing for dinner, or what restaurants you're planning to dine at. This will make it easy to see whether or not there's things they like or don't like. Don't be embarrassed to ask either, but at the end of the day if you feel uncomfortable, make your significant other do the asking. That's what they're there for anyways, right!? haha. 

4. Create the perfect setting. Decorating the dining room table for an intimate dinner or for holidays with the family, is definitely one of my favorite things. I love decorating with the colors of the season and the holiday in mind. Whether it's silver and blue for Hanukkah or green and red for Christmas, it brings out the holiday cheer. For Thanksgiving/Fall, I used the colors of the season (that are actually very prominent in my home since Fall is my favorite time of year), which are cinnamon, evergreen. butter and burnt orange. For the tablescape above I used some of my favorite gold, round placemats from Macy's which I've linked here. They are perfect for the holiday season, or to spruce up any dinner year round. I topped it with a fall foliage themed napkin and napkin ring. These napkin rings I actually made last year using shower curtain rings, hemp, and painting fake leaves my favorite Fall colors. Gifting a set of 4-6 napkin rings would be a great treat to give your guest when they leave. Simple, easy, and a nice homemade touch. 

What are some of your hostessing tips? I would love to hear them. Also, if you have any questions on how to prep for the holidays, don't hesitate to ask!
