Life Lately: Happy October!

We had the best time at Wild Dunes.  One of the afternoons, we attended an iron working class and made bottle openers.  Local artisan, James Irving was pretty adamant about us doing it all by ourselves, so the hammering and twisting was all me.  He was a great instructor!

It was 2400 degrees in the forge (kiln).

The final product…monogram and all!  If you’re interested in attending this class while you’re vacationing at Wild Dunes, it’s called ‘Playing with Fire’ and you can choose to create a rose, an oyster shucker, a bottle opener or fire poker.  Head over here to book your class online.

What I Wore

Top (Some of you asked if this top was see-through; the answer is yes, it is. Super lightweight for a warm day, which I loved.  I wore a white sports bra under mine, but you could totally wear a white cami too and it would be so cute!) // Shorts // Purse // Sandals // Sunnies

I also got to enjoy a tennis lesson while we were there.  This is always my absolute favorite whenever we vacation at Wild Dunes!  Growing up, we used to take clinics here all the time.  Love this resort for its tennis amenities so much!

What I Wore

Dress (currently on sale) // Shoes // Bag // Sunnies

The cutest buddies!


Panthers had a big win yesterday!  Wore this tank to cheer them on!

It was October 1st yesterday and we still went to a friend’s birthday at the POOL!  It was a little cold, but the kids didn’t mind at all!

You know it’s a good weekend when you end it with the ice cream truck!

Finally, I’ll leave you with this look.  Love the color of this cardigan and love how well it’s made! // Paired it with this striped top (only $19!), these jeans (on sale!) and these wedges.  These shoes are becoming a favorite and they’re so popular they’ve already sold out completely at Nordstrom, but are still available in all sizes here.  They fit true to size and no breaking in necessary.

I hope y’all had a great weekend!  The weather here has dropped at least ten degrees the past two days and it finally feels like Fall!  Not sure it’ll stick around too long, but we’re sure enjoying it while it lasts!

    1. I went with a medium. It’s a tad big and probably could’ve done a small. Hope it shrinks a little in the wash!

  1. Hi Ashley,

    I just adore your website! It’s such a highlight of my day! Would you mind sharing how you styled Wheeler’s hair? That little knot in back is adorable and is really something fun compared to a typical bun. I think it would look great in my daughter Maggie’s long hair! Also where is Wheeler’s dress from? Thank you!

    1. Thank you so much, Samantha! It’s pretty simple how I fixed her hair, but it’s hard to explain. I’ll try and post a hair tutorial soon. Wheeler’s dress is an oldie but goodie from Mini Boden. 😉
