STILL GOTTA WAKE UP AND BE SOMEONE

9w7a1413

I enjoy being alone. Outside of time with my partner and the occasional interaction with a friend or family member, I am always alone, in my own thoughts and quiet. I live alone and take in the silence while I work on the blog or do my homework. I read The New Yorker or write out my…

LEFT, RIGHT, GOT IT FIGURED OUT

Just posting a breezy summer look to share with all of you. I am extremely butthurt that it is still over 100 degrees here in the desert, despite the occasional cloudy day or storm. It seems that every summer here has been hotter and hotter, and my patience with everyday life deteriorates with every degree…

WHILE RAIN IS FALLING LIKE RHINESTONES

Okay, I’m back, I promise. Thank you all for your patience with me the past week or so, I know I have been MIA. I’ve been going through a lot in my personal life, and I knew that it would be the right thing to take a bit of a break. And shit, I really…

SHE WILL KISS YOU TILL YOUR LIPS BLEED

I’ve been in a huge Regina Spektor mood lately. I’ve been listening to her for seven years or so, and I feel that I can always relate to her music, especially her older albums (Soviet Kitsch and Songs are the best), and lately I have been feeling pretty magical and light, putting on her records alone in…

WALKING AROUND IN OUR SUMMERTIME CLOTHES (WITH ZAFUL)

I abhor summer. Seriously. Between living in the middle of the desert, having the sun beat down on me on my daily bike ride, and having close to nothing to wear, summer is the absolute worst for me. It is so difficult to pull off summer outfits as a minimalist. We thrive on creative layers and sweaters….

LITTLE THINGS: BRALETTES

I hate boobs. Okay, correction: I hate my boobs. They get in the way, they aren’t cute, and they can make clothes look weird. I have been proudly braless since I was a sophomore in high school (meaning no underwires/uncomfortable weird tit contraptions with the occasional exception once in a blue moon when my chest…

LITTLE THINGS: SOCKS

  This mini series has been a test of consistency for me. I want to see how capable I am of doing scheduled posts, and I also want to see if you guys like it (let me know in the comments if you want to see posts on a regular schedule!). We talked last week…

LITTLE THINGS: MY LAPEL PINS

IMG_0176

Being a minimalist, I usually stray from collecting little things unless they are truly meaningful and important to me. I almost never wear jewelry, I only like owning makeup I use every day, and I only like rotating through the same few bags. However, there are some little things that are my vices, and I…

THE LIE BECOMES THE TRUTH

Everybody has a day when they wake up and know that nothing is going to go right. Nobody is spared from this happening at least once. Unfortunately, mine was yesterday. Though I am not ready to talk about events that led up to why yesterday was awful, I want to write a post that emphasizes…

COME BACK WITH MY HEART

9W7A5009-2

I am currently writing this blog post from the PHX airport waiting for my flight to Seattle for the next few days. If you follow me on Snapchat (ballard_ashley), you know that I am ALWAYS here. Being addicted to globetrotting is the most fulfilling hobby ever. I am always exploring new things and fantasizing about…
