Runway Regal





Hello lovelies! The other day I was asked to walk in a fashion show for one of my favorite stores, Simply Couture & of course I jumped at the opportunity! The fashion show had a lot of different boutiques and was held in a convention center so as the looks were walking down the runway you could go to their booth that was set up and buy the outfit! (My whole look was actually bought shortly after I got off the runway)
It was so much fun & I actually ended up seeing a lot of familiar faces from Fashion Week, some of my dance students as well as people I hadn't seen in a while.

This was my first time walking on a runway stage and from the pictures you can't tell, but the stage was actually about 5 feet off the ground. Which was a little nerve racking cause even though I wasn't that high off the ground my brain was totally playing me making me think I was like fifteen feet off the ground! (I was fine once I reached the end haha)
Also can we talk about that GORGEOUS lighting piece in the background?? Stunning!!

Now moving on to outfit details....

I love the monochromatic look of the whole outfit with the subtle pop of color being the navy shorts which are the cutest, high waisted shorts with a tie on the front.
The blazer I'm wearing is actually one of those really cool blazers that's a mix of a cape and a blazer together. So you don't have full sleeves but still have that really sleek and elegant look which I think can really dress up any outfit. Underneath I'm wearing a plain black tank top & for accessories I have on this super pretty gold necklace.

NWA FASHION WEEK 2017

 My mom & I watching the rest of the show Friday night! 




 Post Fashion Show Dessert. (Much needed chocolate haha) 



Hello lovelies! I'm so so excited about this post that I'm sharing with you today because these are some of the pictures that were taken during this past weekend at NWA Fashion Week 2017! I had the amazing opportunity to walk for Shop for Mankind & Ashley Little - Material Concepts! 
This was my first big fashion show & my first fashion week & it was one of the best experiences ever, I had so much fun!
Literally everyone I met was so kind and friendly, it was so cool to be around a group of people who all loved fashion so much!

Friday nights show I walked for Shop for Mankind and wore a very comfy and cute yoga/workout outfit. My hairstylist (who's name I didn't catch sadly) did MAGIC on my hair! The curls were perfect & I honestly wish my hair looked like that everyday.

Saturday night's show I got to wear this impeccable dress designed by Ashley Little. When I tried this on during my fitting last month I fell in love. It was seriously such a dream! I actually had my hair and makeup done several hours before I ever put on the dress so it was a little odd and people were a bit confused, (even though everyone thought it was awesome.) But once I put on the dress & necklace everything made sense and exactly how Ashley had pictured in her mind. Which, of course is what you want. I'm so glad that her vision came together exactly how she wanted it in every one of her looks. (Especially this one, it was a crowd pleaser!)

Our makeup was provided by Maybelline which I thought was so cool since I love their products! There was seriously so many makeup products everywhere, it was a beauty guru's dream!

I vlogged a bit of the weekend for memories sake. Which you can check out on my channel by clicking HERE.

Turquoise x Plaid


Hello lovelies! It's currently 9am and I am about to get ready to head off to walk in my first Fashion Week!! I'm so so excited & extremely grateful for this opportunity! Hopefully I will get lots of pictures & maybe even vlog? We'll find out later how all that works out.. I can only assume the next two days will be very fun, eventful & busy!! You can follow me on my Instagram @ashleywilliamz where I will probably be posting lots of Instagram stories over the next two days.

Okay now that I've shared my excitement, time to move on to this outfit.. I would be lying if I said I hadn't already gotten about 4 compliments in person from people I know on this dress that have already seen it on my Facebook page.. And honestly I'm right there with them! It is so darling and is one of those staple pieces that you could easily dress up with a pair of heels and maybe a leather jacket, or dress down with some ankle booties or sneakers.

Turquoise is one of my favorite colors so paring this dress with a turquoise necklace was such a cute idea!

Pretty in Purple










I’ve always loved the idea of rompers, but finding one that fit me properly has always been a struggle. Not only is this purple one the PERFECT color & design (floral, is anyone even surprised with me right now?? haha) but it fits wonderfully! I did have to use fashion tape for the front part though, since it does come down a little lower than I like to wear my clothes (Just a little side note. You of course can wear it to your own personal preference!)
This is definitely one of my new favorite outfits & perfect for all the warm days we have been having and upcoming Spring Break trips! 



Shop this romper HERE.
