What a wonderful weekend I had, as I hosted my Birthday Thrift Crawl, Part Deux, in Santa Monica with a gaggle of friends! This Outfit of the Day is whimsical and carefree, much like my energy that day. See more of this summery look after the jump!
This Thanksgiving I wore something with a little edge to it: this Xhilaration dress from Target with an eye-catching animal print design. See more of this Outfit of the Day after the jump!
It was three years ago that I decided to start Ashley ♥ Adores, a place where I set out to share pieces of my little world with the rest of the universe. And I must admit, I’ve had my share of hiccups (including this redesign coming a day short of my actually anni — woops!), but I’m proud of myself for continued forward progress. It’s the most work I’ve ever put into something consistently, and it’s been rewarding.
To commemorate this special occasion, I decided it was about time to ditch the old look (Balloons theme, you served me well) and go with a cleaner, polished, more mature look. Plus, I made for a more user-friendly experience by moving my categories and social media icons to the forefront. I’m also toying around with the idea of adding a new weekly feature. New year, new me, right? Here it is in all its glory, friends! Please take a look around and let me know what you think in the comments section below!
With this redesign comes a renewed zeal for all things Ashley ♥ Adores! Stay tuned for a survey next week. I would love to hear from you about what you like about this blog, what you’d like to see more (and/or less) of, and where you think I can improve.
Lastly, but certainly not least, I want to extend a huge “thank you” to every one of you who have followed this blog, commented, entered a giveaway, liked a post, passed through, et cetera, et cetera. You guys are the best! I hope that my content helps brighten your day in its own way, and that you’ll continue reading Ashley ♥ Adores.
P.S. I’m so grateful for my guy, Dash, who spent so much of his time and energy, and experienced loss of sleep, to ensure that this redesign came to fruition! I couldn’t have done it without you!
I found this gem at the Salvation Army in Oakland, California, a few years ago, in the boys’ section no less. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I make this eccentric sweater work in the Outfit of the Day.

Sparkles, shimmer and glitter go hand in hand with the ideal New Year’s Eve get-up. My theory is, the more shine to your outfit, the better your night will be. See more of this glitzy look after the jump!

This slightly hideous but delightfully charming Christmas sweater has been a highlight of my holiday wardrobe for years. This Christmas was no different! See more of this festive look after the jump.
Sometimes you just need to wear a ginormous bow tie. So that’s exactly what I did on a recent jaunt to Palm Desert. See more of this bold look after the jump!
This Outfit of the Day is a prime example of when a thrifted get-up looks like you paid full price.

“Ba-da-ba-ba-ba.” You may recognize this festive, vintage tee from a Thrifted Thursday. Yes, it’s true. I partied at McDonald’s as a kid, and the Mickey D’s turn up still continues from time to time. In fact, I had lunch there yesterday.
