The Best of the Best

Recently I’ve been finding SO many fun things on Mango that I just had to share. I placed an order a few weeks ago and picked up this safari dress for $29 (shirt version here) along with a few other keepers! Mango is great for finding those fun, special pieces that no one else will have. Like this Lion King Dress I’m wearing (as Ryan and I have nick-named it).

Go Anywhere Flats

I love finding pieces like this one that are different, out of the box, and affordable that I can pair with some of my more well-loved and classic pieces, like my Stubbs & Wootton shoes. Mixing high and low pieces has never been so fun!

Speaking of classic pieces. These Stubbs & Wootton straw slippers are quite possibly the most classic, most comfortable, and most versatile shoes I own. I dreamt of owning a pair of Stubbs, and I’ve got to say they are just as magical in real life as they were in my imagination. They’re a forever piece that you’ll always have in your closet, plus they are a great all season shoe! I’ve worn these all Summer long and I can’t wait to wear them this Fall.

They are definitely an investment piece, but I promise you, you’ll never wear a more comfortable flat… and I have a 20% discount code to help (Use: AB20). ­čśë

My “Grace Kelly” Hat

There’s something about a hat that just makes you feel a little more brave, don’t you think?!

I’ve been having fun this season trying new things and styling pieces I’ve never really worn together. But I have to tell you, this hat, is most likely the culprit behind most of my creative dressing lately. At $40, it is most definitely my favorite purchase of the Summer. I wear the heck out of it, and feel like Grace Kelly (in this photo) every time I put it on. It’s by far my most loved accessory of the moment.

    You look beautiful in that dress. Very chic and classy. What a fun print! Love the hat on you, too! That polka dot dress you show as others you have your eye would look gorgeous on you. That dress is very you. I love your style Ashley.
