simmer down | outfit

listening to // english love affair, 5sos

Forever 21 cami top // DIY ripped black skinny jeans // monochrome Converse

I took a page out of Luke Hemmings' book and paired a pair of ripped black skinny jeans with the only pair of shoes I ever seem to wear on this blog. If you're interested in getting a pair of these ~rad~ pair of skinnies for yourself, literally just grab any pair of skinny jeans you own and scissors and watch this 1 minute video:

Just make sure you're only cutting the front of your jeans and not the back, because that's what I did. 

Love always, Ashley.

risky business | discussing stick and pokes

Romeo & Juliet Couture jersey top // American Rag joggers
listening to | Shut Up & Dance // Walk The Moon

Sometimes I make temporarily bad decisions, like wearing these pants when it was 90 degrees out. And other times, I make bad decisions that stick (hahahaha) with me forever, like doing stick and pokes. If you don't know, stick and pokes are pretty much diy tattoos and are surprisingly simple to do. All you need is a needle, some ink, and the guts to basically stab yourself five thousand times.

I've gotten quite a few questions on these and I figure I'd just answer the ones I get the most here (please hit "read more" to see the rest of them!)

*if you're looking to do your own stick and poke, please please please consult other sources for the exact steps to doing it safely!!

butterflies & needles | outfit

listening to // hunger of the pine by alt-j

nordstrom cardigan // f21 tank top // 3b skirt // h&m socks //  shelly's london shoes

Because my whole outfit revolved around the statement shoes and (sparkly) socks, I attempted to go for a more "neutral" look with the whole color scheme. And what I love about this cardigan is that I can wear it on even the hottest of days because of how airy and fluid it is! Apparently, dressing myself on 1 hour of sleep and 2 cups of coffee results in better outfit days. Who knew? 

I hope you all had a wonderful week (I sure didn't) and continue to have a good weekend. I guess I'll get back to my Friday night turn up (aka discovering music, watching short films, and ceaselessly scrolling on Instagram.) 

Your friend,
