The one with the orange shoes.

Good morning, friends!

My weekend was incredibly full. It felt like I was always on the move, but, as much as I enjoy the relaxing Netflix & pj weekends, I had a ball. There was pie, mini roadtrips, visiting friends, movies, moms, getting yelled at by White House guards, and crafts.

I can't fit it all into one post so I will start with my Mother's Day outfit. Jer and I headed into D.C. yesterday morning to take photos of a visiting friend (photos coming!), while we were there he snapped a few photos of the outfit I was wearing.

These made me think of Srsly Liz!

H&M Navy Skirt

Francesca's Ring


((Also, I got a super random anon comment saying that they didn't think my husband existed. Haha! Maybe it was spam, but there he is if you doubted.))



Ah! I'm so obsessed with these shoes. I first saw them on Ashley (Ashley's represent!). Then Miss Kate looked amazing in the black color, so I gave in. They are such a fun color and really comfortable.

Sunglasses: UO
Ring: Francesca's Collections
Skirt & Tee: H&M

((Preview of things to come!))

I also worked on a little mother's day bouquet. I followed instructions in the latest Martha Stewart Living, but it was basically making mini versions of the large decorative pompoms and securing them with green pipe cleaners - cute, right?

FYI - crafting is always more enjoyable if you can find a BBC movie staring Hugh Dancy to watch.

Abraham Lincoln Quote

After the rainy morning in the District, I got to spend all afternoon with my mom. She has really gotten into makeup lately, so she is a lot of fun to shop for. :) And isn't that Abe Lincoln quote perfect? That man said some pretty great things in his lifetime. I agree with every word of that sentiment. I love you, Mom!

That is all.


  1. This outfit is beautiful, Ashley. The scarf and the shoes and the earring and the detail on the blouse - everything is just perfect. I am glad you had a lovely weekend!



  2. Oh I love orange - those shoes are great! I also love your flower bouquet. I am going to have to try one of those. Looks like it is going to be a lovely week in NoVa - enjoy the weather!

  3. Love the orange! It makes the whole outfit pop.

    I think it's hilarious that someone thought your husband didn't exist. Who do they think takes all of those fabulous photos of you!?

  4. The orange is gorgeous. Your pictures are always so, so fabulous. I must get to DC so we can gallivant around together. The flower pompom bouquet is lovely. I'll have to try that!

    It all goes together so well and I just love it! The skirt, shoes (!), and sunglasses.
