Ashley wears this fittingly nautical inspired outfit on a boat, but it would work just as well for any summer outing. Her blue high waisted shorts have chic gold buttons that really play up the nautical vibe, and make the shorts a little dressier as well. Her striped shirt is a classic that everyone should have in their closet, and could easily be paired with many different pieces. Comfy slide-on sandals are weather appropriate and easy to walk around in.
Ashley always finds the cutest dress brands, and this strapless dress is perfect for a glam night out. The short hemline makes legs look extra long, and the zipper down the front makes the dress feel special. Ashley emphasizes the strapless neckline with a bold statement necklace. Her black heeled sandals dress the look up for nighttime, but because they have a strap around the heel, they're still sturdy for walking around.
This sweet printed shirtdress is the ideal day to night piece. It has a relaxed silhouette that's very comfortable, particularly on hot days. However, the collar makes it slightly more formal for a dressy occasion. Ashley's adorable clutch bag has a bike on the front, which adds to the overall charm of the outfit. Her nude slide-on flats are comfy for a day of walking around, but have a nice pointed toe, which elongates the leg line.
