SISTER STYLE: Ashton Brye + Black & White's






 MY OUTFIT // SHIRT: Ashton Brye // SHORTS: Target // SHOES: Lucky Brand // SUNGLASSES: Charlotte Russe
ABBY'S OUTFIT // SHIRT: Thrifted // SHORTS: Ann Taylor // SHOES: Vans // HAT: Forever21 

 Who's loving Sister Styles?? I love putting together outfits with my sister & doing photoshoots in them. Half the time we're wearing the other's clothes so it's always fun to see each other's style on the other person! 
I've been loving wearing my Ashton Brye tee's this summer, and I know Abby has too! Every time I'm about to stick on the "Tea Time" shirt, she already has it on! haha 

I was also enjoying my extra fluffy hair today. The humidity calmed it down after a couple hours, but I was feeling very Tori Kelly for a little bit!

My Week in OKC



Really pretty bridge going into Bricktown

(Mother of all nachos)





 This week some of the other teachers from the studio that I work at & I attended the OCU Dance Teacher Convention in Oklahoma City. It was a ton of fun and I loved getting to take classes from so many different talented teachers & choreographers! Besides getting to observe & take dance classes, we also got to learn about a lot of the backstage and behind the scenes action and creative ways to use different elements of everything that goes into making a dance. 

Besides the first night (when we just ordered pizza to our room) we went out into the city to eat and explore. The second night we went and ate some mexican food (notice the large pile of nachos ^^ haha) and took some cute pictures under the bridge going into Bricktown. ALSO can I just express my love for the store Pinkitzel?? This was the CUTEST store I think I've ever been in. Everything was black, white & hot pink and the cupcakes were AMAZING! They also had two of the cutest little party rooms, which if I were in my younger years you best believe I would've had a birthday party or two there! 

The last night, Thursday, we got a little more dressed up and out of our dance clothes and went to the Cheesecake Factory. Love me some fettuchini alfredo! Afterwards we walked over to the mall which was right next to it and went to Forever21, where I got my hat in the last photo & some socks that look like they hopped out of an episode of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. 

Overall it was a great week & I'm really excited for this year and all the memories I know are going to be made!

Dutch Braid into a Fishtail



Filmed a hair tutorial after about three months the other day. This has been a vey requested tutorial by girls who have just seen me wear this hairstyle around, so of course when I get a lot of people asking me how I do a hairstyle I just make a tutorial & send them the link! haha 
The dutch braid whether I put it into a fishtail or just wrap it around as a half crown braid is my go to. I braided my hair a lot during camp as did a lot of girls, so hopefully if you were one of the girls who asked how I did this that this helps you out!

road trip casual - Ashton Brye + Southern Drift!






Getting ready to leave for the week to head to a dance convention, so I thought I would dress pretty comfortable for the car ride. I'm wearing one of my favorite Ashton Brye shirts & my new hat from Southern Drift! I realize in the pictures I'm not wearing any shoes, and that's just cause I ran outside real quick to take these pictures. But I'll probably just be slipping on some flip flops! 



SHIRT: Ashton Brye
SHORTS: Target
SUNGLASSES: Charlotte Russe

pearls n' curls





Got a little more dressed up today for my day out shopping with my sister & friend Hana. Loving the combo of striped shorts & pearls. Also I swapped out what some have referred to as my "suitcase" with this cute clutch. Definitely keeps you from carrying around things that really aren't needed! 
Lots of the stores around town were having sales, so I managed to get some really cute sneakers from Charlotte Russe for less than $10! (Can you tell I've been really loving that store lately??) 
Found a Van Halen vinyl for my brother at one of the local shops, and got some soccer pants from Academy. Going to come in handy this week while I'm at dance convention! 



SHIRT: Justice (yes the kids store haha) 
SHORTS: Thrifted 
SHOES: Kohls 
JEWELRY: Dressing Your Truth 
PURSE: Borrowed 
SUNGLASSES: Charlotte Russe

Everyday Makeup Routine




After getting my camera fixed I've been back in the swing of making YouTube videos again, and this is the one that I uploaded the other day! This is typically what I do on a day to day basis for my makeup. Every once and a while I'll switch it up with more of a smokey eye or a really natural look but for the most part this is what I do! 

I will be uploading a lot more so be sure to subscribe to my channel - youtube.com/imashleyhello to be notified when I upload new videos!

little white room





You never know what kind of weather you're going to get down here in the south. I got to spend all of this sunny but then rainy Sunday with my lovely friends, eating lunch, shopping & then all cozied up back at my friend Samantha's house where I fell in love with this little white room. 
 It's going to be her new photography room once it's finished being painted, but for me today I used it for sitting & snapping some pics! 



today's favorite song: Unbreakable Smile - Tori Kelly

Berry Pickin' in the South!






Besides summer & AshtonBrye, my other favorite thing are strawberries. I have been obsessed with them since probably the age of three and can eat a barrel of them if you let me! I just about fell over when I saw this shirt that Ashton released, because it combines two of my favorite things.. Comfy shirts & strawberries!
