Summer Update

Blazer (similar style here & here) | Shirt | Skirt | Purse (budget friendly version here) | Heels | Watch (budget friendly version here) | Earrings | Sunglasses 

We're already halfway through the week, and Fourth of July is creeping up on us (how is it already next week?!). I had some travel plans unexpectedly shift earlier this week, so I've had some extra time here in Houston to catch up on my to-do list and get some work done. First things first, the blog!

I've recently felt a little uninspired in the content I've been sharing with you. Yes, clothes are great and I love fashion, but I definitely want to showcase other things I care about. I'm making it a priority - starting now - to share different content with you. For instance, I've been cooking a lot more, and on Instagram, I've had several people ask me to share the recipes I am making. I also have been adding some new pieces to our home, and want to share our updated decor with you. Lastly, I realize that I've never shared a Houston guide with you...anything from what to do when family/friends come visit, to my favorite restaurants, or where I go for hair/nails/etc. I feel like I answer a ton of these questions when I respond to emails or DM's, but how nice would it be if they were all in one place?! Everyone has also asked for more book reviews and travel guides/reviews - those two are always my most popular and highest trafficked posts.  

The list could go on, and I look forward to being a more well-rounded resource for you. Yes, the focus will still primarily be fashion, but with a curated lifestyle twist. If there's any content you'd love to see on Ashley Nicole Style, please let me know!

Hot Pink Zebra Dress

Dress | Purse | Shoes (on sale!!) | Necklace | Bracelets | Earrings (similar style here) | Sunglasses

TGIF, babes! It's time to take a walk on the wild side!

This dress is definitely a statement maker. Hot pink - check. Bold pattern - check. Yep, there's no denying that this dress garners attention. If wearing a fierce print is a bit too much for you, this dress also comes in black, which is a little more subtle. It also comes in a cute tunic top, and bell-bottom pants. Both of which are great options so you just have a pop of zebra print, versus all over stripes.

Over the summer season, I feel like it's always a must to play with color. Colorful pieces just seem fitting when it's sunny and hot out. If you're not into going full on technicolor, accessories are a great way to incorporate color into your everyday wardrobe.  Think shoes, tying a brightly hued scarf onto your handbag, or just playing up the vibe with a fun pair of sunnies. Trust me, wearing color is an instant mood booster!

Hope you have a great weekend:)

Graphic Tee

Tee | Blazer | Shorts | Purse (budget friendly version here) | Heels (similar style here & here) | Watch (similar style here) | Sunglasses | Earrings | Cuff

Hello cute graphic tee! I cannot even begin to tell you how soft and comfortable this shirt is. When the weekend rolls around, soft tees and these jean shorts are my uniform. From a casual Mexican dinner to brunch, jean shorts are a mindless option. They're the perfect neutral, making them easy to pair with anything. This pair is a great length, and they're currently on sale for only $25!  

With any outfit I wear all the time, I'm always looking for ways to change it up. I wanted to dress up this outfit, so I added a blazer to make it look pulled together. I know you're thinking 'eek a blazer when it's 100 degrees out.' Yes, because with Texas heat comes Texas sized air conditioning. Literally it is freezing inside every restaurant, store, etc. here during the summer months. It's like going from one extreme to the other. 

And, can we give this purse a moment? Ahhh, it's so beautiful in every way! You know I love my leopard print, and the mix of sassy with the sweet flowers are a match made in heaven. I found a great budget friendly version here
