Printed Short Suit

Oh hello there Thursday Cinco de Mayo! This is always a fun day at work (we typically have food demos, Mariachi bands and the works on the show) and I’m sure a lot of you are celebrating too!

I wore this little short suit over the weekend but wish it was warm enough to wear it again today. There’s just something so polished about a short suit, and until now, I didn’t have a printed one. Serena & Lily has some really cute pieces in their apparel line. How perfect would this dress be for graduation or a spring party? It also comes in white for all you brides-to-be. Wish I had it last year!

Summer Lace Dresses


At the moment, lace dresses are my favorite. A few months ago I wrote about the Self Portrait inspired dresses I was finding  and have been getting a lot of questions about them. I wanted to share more since they seem to be really popular!

I know lots of girls are shopping for upcoming weddings, graduations and fun summer parties and I think lace/crochet dresses are perfect for this time of year. Obviously just avoid white or even the light blushes if you’re not the bride.

I’m thinking about getting this one for a wedding next month. The powder blue is perfect for summer. I have this dress in white and red but am loving the updated pastel shades this year. They run true to size and are the perfect price point.

Thanks for reading – enjoy your day!

Floral Maxi Dress

Every time I wear something floral this time of year I think of The Devil Wears Prada… “Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.”

I can’t help it! Even though they may seem so basic, I find myself reaching for them more than any other print in my closet. Except maybe stripes…

This dress is just so pretty and it gives you the Angelina leg. I wore it around Santa Barbara last weekend and now I want to wear it every day until September. Really though, I’ll probably wear it to a shower and even a wedding before summer’s over. It’s the perfect seasonal day-time “guest attire” and deserves to be seen as much as possible!

Bonus… it pairs perfectly with my current favorite “party shoes.”

I’m someone who requires a lot of sleep to function. I wake up for work around five am, so by 9 pm I’m ready to crash and call it a night. My bed has always been my sanctuary, but ever since we moved into our huge new master suite our old bed felt so teeny tiny in the room.

Recently Jeff and I and got the chance to upgrade from our old queen size mattress to a king from Leesa. If you’re not familiar Leesa is an exclusively online mattress company. They’ve designed and crafted a beautiful mattress that really helps give you the best night’s sleep. They’re delivered right to your door step in a box about the size of a mini-fridge. I couldn’t believe my king mattress was inside! Even better, for every 10 mattresses they sell, they donate one to a shelter. If you’re still not sold, they have a 100-night risk-free guarantee.

You just unroll the compressed Leesa mattress, set it on your bed frame, tear away the plastic wrapping, and it immediately takes shape of  a luxurious foam mattress. It’s kind of crazy to watch!

Our new mattress is so comfortable and not only has my approval, but Jeff and Mackie’s as well. I’ve been sleeping so much better since we switched… I didn’t even know that was possible. We weren’t seeing any bed frames we loved so Jeff decided to design and build one himself. He also built our headboard a few years ago. 

If you’re in the market for a new mattress Leesa is offering $75 off with the code ASHNFASHN. Happy sleeping!

The Madonna Inn

The last time I was at the Madonna Inn I was on a road trip with my family and I was 13.  All these years later it’s just as kitschy as I remembered. It’s such a fun spot that probably hasn’t changed much since it opened in the 50’s. We only stopped for breakfast, but I’d love to go back for a longer stay. All of the rooms are decorated with their own theme and you can actually choose which one you want to stay in. You can see them here. Also, if you’re there for more than one night they don’t mind if you switch rooms so you can experience more!

I was worried I’d be cold but decided to wear this lavender dress (It’s $31 and the quality is surprisingly good for the price) and the weather turned out to be perfect once again. I’m not the biggest fan of purple but lately the lighter shades are growing on me.

Anthropologie Wish List


Anthropologie is such a fun store. I always love popping into one or just browsing online. Even if I’m not looking for anything in particular I always find inspiration there.

I think this chair would be amazing in a corner with a stack of books and a plant on it.

I love a striped shirt and the details on the back of this one set it appart from the rest.

Wouldn’t this dress be perfect at a garden party?! I need one on my calendar so I have an excuse to buy it, like now.

Okay, I may already have this blanket but would love a second one for our bedroom. It’s such a statement piece and would look amazing on our ivory hotel collection bedding.

A huge new Anthro just opened in Newport and I can’t wait to check it out this weekend. I’m sure I’ll come home with something from this list!
