"Don't be Delicate--"

"Don't Be Delicate, be Vast and Brilliant" 
Good afternoon you lovelies! I've had a great morning today, made amazing pancakes for one of my roommates and now I'm just sipping on coffee and relaxing. So much has been changing with me lately but I just have been strong and keeping an open mind about everything. Life is really too short and you have to continue to do what you love, and really fight for it. On another note this quote that this post is named after is truly inspiring. You don't want to get by, by being delicate. Show the world that you are truly brilliant because you are! This outfit is so fun because all of the elements of fringe. I am pretty obsessed with fringe and this vest is one of those things that i've had forever….its ridiculously fun! Hope you enjoy it!

XOXO ASHLEY P

XOXO

This shoot was rather special because once again it was spontaneous and if you know me you know I hate planning things, and I like just going with the flow. I especially like adventures that are stumbled upon. It's all about letting the hair down, laughing until you cry, and smiling so much until you can't feel your cheeks. This shoot was exactly that, it was a perfect sunny day and I was so happy to stumble upon these beautiful flowers during winter and to be wearing this during winter. I guess that's what you get when you live in LA. XOXO is all about life, love and happiness.

Live In the Moment xx

Living in the moment is something we all should be doing but planning ahead and wanting to know what the future will bring gets in the way of that. I think life is meant to be lived in the moment and we shouldn't stray away from that. No matter what happens in the future or where life leads us it's nice to be in the moment. This outfit was very in the moment. I found this amazing cliff in the middle of a neighborhood that was well perfect. The road led me to this magical place and I'm thankful for that. You can't really tell from the pictures but the cliff over looks San Clemente and the Ocean is off in the distance, it's perfectly seen in person but the daylight took that from the photos. I still can not explain how much I love dresses and the freedom you have while wearing one. This dress was fun to play around in and has such a gorgeous pattern on it and Motel is that great site that I got it from. If you haven't checked out Motel you must do it now, they have an overall aesthetic that reaches from grunge to girly to down right rocker. Which I love. Check out this fun post and come back for more of my favorite places, outfits and well more!

CA Dreaming

Good afternoon, my CA dreaming blogpost is a fun natural easy going type of outfit. This day included heading to San Clemente. Eating breakfast at the best joint in town SC Cafe, and then adventurerous and spontaneous rides! My best friend and I roamed around the city and found places we've never been before, although we go to San Clemente quite often. After roaming around town we took a bike ride down to the beach and it was amazing. Mind you it was quite the work out with all the hills in the neighborhoods….I loved it! After working up a sweat we had lunch at a cute joint in town and the day ended with going on a friends boat and watching the sunset. It was quite the CA dream. And a great way to start the New Year. If you've never experienced a sunset on a boat I greatly recommend it. There's something so stunning about the reflection of the water as the orange sky disappears into black. You have to see it for yourself. Back to the outfit, since it was a fun CA day, I wanted a fun CA outfit. Levi high waisted shorts are a CA must have and so are ankle booties! Enjoy!
