ABD Styled: Let’s Be Tourists!

Tourist 2 - Ashley Brooke Deisgns

Happy style post Wednesday to you! Today’s look is all about embracing the look of a tourist. Recently, I’ve come down with the travel bug… which is THE worst, and Pinterest does not make it any better! So, what I’ve been doing lately, is going on little mini stay-cations and exploring all of the tucked away spots in Central Florida that I have yet to experience (aka, The Morse Museum + The Winter Park Boat Tour!)… which is so much fun! So if you are like me and have been doing a little Pinterest dreaming… get yourself all dressed up in your “tourist gear” and start googling your city! I promise you’ll find all sorts of fun things to explore!! Next up on my list of places to visit… Leu Gardens!

Get the Look // Dress–81 Poppies, Jacket–Old Navy, Shoes–Nine West (similar), Earrings–Juicy Couture (similar), Lipstick–Revlon, Polish–Essie, Camera–My Dad’s Vintage Camera!

{New Custom Illustration} Couples Stationery

Couples Sationery via Ashley Brooke Designs

Today I wanted to share with you this super cute and oh-so-preppy illustration I recently finished for Ashleigh and her mister! When Ashleigh contacted us wanting stationery of her little family, I was so excited because #1. she was EXTRA sweet and #2. she wanted preppy, sophisticated, and fun… right up my ally! She also wanted her husband, Dave, to be in his signature Ray-bans (I love illustrating the little extra touches!)! I can’t get over the way this illustration came together… so cute!

Weekend Lookbook: April 19-20, 2014

Easter Flowers via Ashley Brooke Designs

Good morning and happy Monday to you! Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend…

Photo 1: I know every weekend I mention how much I love fresh flowers… it’s a problem I have. But regardless, how pretty is this Easter Arrangement? I toted it from room to room with me over the weekend, just couldn’t get enough!

P. S. Shoes are from J. Crew!

Photo 2: Girls’ Night at the theater! One of my besties called and said she had 4 tickets to go see  Jersey Boys and invited me and 2 more of my best girls! We had THE best time! I’d never seen Jersey Boys so it was such a treat, and I got to rock my new Two Penny Blue Blazer and Loren Hope earrings, so I was a happy camper… and now I can’t stop singing “Beggin’“!

Photo 3: I love Easter Sunday–it’s one of my favorite days of the year for so many wonderful reasons, but I have to also admit that I LOVE a good Easter Dress! Each year I get a new dress for Easter and this years dress makes me extra happy… it’s blue-floral-y-perfection!

P.S. Hanger is from Pearls and Pastries

I hope your weekend was equally as lovely, but for now I am off to go get this week started! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!! xx

Lovely Finds: Happy Good Friday!

Good Friday Via Ashley Brooke Designs

Good morning and happy Good Friday to you! Easter is one of my favorite holidays–I love Sunrise Easter services, Easter dresses, Easter egg shaped Reese’s Cups, Easter bunnies… you name it, Easter is my jam. So I thought before all the celebrating and family goodness that is about ready to consume my weekend, I would take a few minuets to jot down a few things I am grateful for this Easter. I do this just about every morning (as you might have read here) but today, being Good Friday, I wanted to really think about this verse, and all of His goodness. Happy Easter Friends! I hope your weekend is filled with all kinds of magical wonder (and egg shaped Reese’s Cups!!).

ABD’s Fancy Friends: Charming Damsel

Charming Damsel via Ashley Brooke Designs

Today’s Fancy Friends is all about Charming Damsel and their adorable turban! I love a good headband (call me Blair Waldorf), but I think a headband can really just finish a look and I just LOVE Charming Damsel’s “twist” (no pun intended!) on the classic headband with their oh-so-adorbale turban. They are so comfortable, which is huge when wearing some sort of hair accessory–flashbacks of me crying as a little girl from a big frilly headband haunt me every time I wear a hair accessory–so, comfortable? Check! Adorable? Check! And, a great gift for your girlfriend? Check! So, stop what you are doing and go get yourself one… or two!

P.S. This is my favorite of theirs right now… so Spring-y and fun!!
