Even though summer is technically still a week away we’re going to pretend that isn’t the case because I’ve already switched into summer mode. With that being said I’m sharing the first edition of my summer style posts! Rocking this effortlessly chic striped jumpsuit that captivated my heart along with minimal silver accessories and a pop of red. Feeling oh so retro. Check out all the pictures after the jump.

My loves! It’s been a awhile since I’ve sat down and written a post so this morning I woke up super early, made my way to the cafe with Future in my headphones and decided to write. It’s morning like this that I love waking up to- sharing a new post and the whole day full of opportunity. I feel like I’m reverting back to my morning ways after weeks of embracing my night owl side. I’m already preparing myself for the next term of school even though summer truly hasn’t even commenced. Typical Ashley isshhh.
In my previous post I mentioned something really special happening in these upcoming months and if you follow me on snap you probably saw me reveal the craziness. Come September I’ll have the incredible opportunity of spending the semester studying abroad …. ?!?!?!? how is this even life? I still can’t believe it so typing it out is so surreal. Never did I think an opportunity like this would come my way but I think that’s the true beauty of life right? You never know what’s right around the corner. You know I’ll be sharing the entire experience with you all and vlogging through this wonderful journey.
It’s crazy because at the beginning of this year I had no idea where I was headed and felt so anxious. It’s moments like those that I realize the best thing you can do for yourself is breathe and have faith. Faith that everything happens for a reason and we sometimes deviate from our intended path to encounter something even more spectacular. Life is funny like that. I sit here today and I finally feel like myself again. Finally that sense of lost hope has faded and I’ve chosen to embrace the moment instead of the unpredictability of the future.
Writing these posts and making videos over these past few months refocused my sense of self and what means most to me. Creating is everything and this gives me such a sense of purpose. So, thank you for reading and taking the time to watch my videos. I seriously can’t wait to embark on this upcoming journey. WE ARE GOING TO HAVE SO MUCH FUN!
