Mani Monday: "Chillato"


Happy Monday y'all!   So I have to finally let you in on my favorite summer shade.  I've been secretly coveting it but I decided it's time to be nice and spread the love.    You know last year my polish choice for summer was "Teeny Bikini" by Essie.  Gah I'm still loving it... but it's time to move on to something fresh!  Well, looks like Essie has won my heart again with their beautiful summer line but especially with the shade, "Chillato."  It's a refreshing shade that I've never seen before anywhere!  It has a limey, greenish/yellow tint and is bright yet understated, with a slightly milky appearance.  So...kind of like if a Pina Colada and a Margarita had a love child... it would definitely resemble the color of "Chillato!"  Seriously though!  Never been a fan of neon be on nails, but I love this because it is a bit toned down.  I bought a hunter green swimsuit this year, and I think it looks great up against it and even more BAM the darker my tan gets.  Definitely declaring "Chillato" my summer shade!  Go pick it up while its still HAUTE.

XOXO,
Ashley

Pink Friday!


                                                    
 HOLA Chicas!  Hope all is well with you and that you are having a fun and exciting summer! It definitely looks that way because my news feeds are blowing up with the two B's.  BEACHES and BABIES.  Am I right though? I mean literally everyone is either at the beach, or having a baby!  Something is definitely in the water!  Speaking of water... this Texas heat is killing me and I just can't cool down or get enough water in my system.    It has finally reached the point of no return where you can't even fake the discomfort any longer.  Scott hates the heat and I am actually a fan of warmer weather, so I always try to make it seem like this time of year doesn't bother me...BUT I just can't fake it any more.  You know you reach your limit when walking to your car pisses you off.  Your sweaty in your work clothes (which for me usually consist of a pant of some sort), sticky and hot.  You get home and you feel disgusting and just beat! 

 Light weight dresses help a little in this situation.  This Iro jersey dress is the perfect summer dress for running around at the grocery in flats or dressed up with a heel!  You usually don't catch me in pink but I just had to have it!  Lastly, I want to say that my heart goes out to the victims and families of the Lafayette shooting. It really hits close to home for me... especially since I went to school at UL and I remember going to that theatre!  It's really sad that we can't feel safe going to see a movie anymore. 

On a brighter note, please have a happy and safe weekend!  I'm headed home to Louisiana! 
                                                                   XOXO, Ashley

Mani Monday: Chanel's Summer 2015 Méditerranée Collection



Okay friends, so the Chanel Summer 2015 Méditerranée Collection has finally hit stores!  I was at Neiman Marcus today and I got to see them up close.  So....yeh.... I'm pretty much obsessed with all four, but my fave is definitely Méditerranée!  I think I just have an obsession with blue shades in general though.  If I see it, I need it!  I think this collection is spot on for summer and honestly, you can't go wrong with of them!!  They will all be stunning with any bikini and golden tan, and even better vacationing near the Mediterranean. =)   Let me know which one is your favorite by commenting below!

XOXO,
Ashley
