The mall had some killer sales this past weekend, making it a great time to start investing in my post-grad wardrobe. New York & Company is a store that I've always enjoyed window shopping from. They were having a 50% off everything sale so I used that to my advantage. 

I came home with two button ups, the light blue one featured in these photos and a basic white one. I also may or may not have squealed when I found these adorable soft shorts, thoroughly embarrassing my little brother. Since my friends weren't back home from college, my little brother agreed to accompany me to the mall. He's truly the best. 

For make up, I used my Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation and primer. Seriously LOVE this new line from Rimmel! I then went about my normal beauty routine with contouring with bronzer and blush. My New York Color Expert Last lipstick completed the look. 

Sponsor Spotlight - Meet Allison!

Allison, the blogger behind Because I Said So, is absolutely adorable and I'm so glad to have her on the sidebar for the past two months! She's the first blogger I've ever chatted with on a Google Hangout and it was awesome! It was great to have the opportunity to chat about blogging with another person who gets it! 

Allison is a recent grad who has a "big girl job" and an apartment to decorate. She's a total shopaholic and loves blogging, sounds like me, right?! We're practically the same person, except she already graduated. Allison is totally sweet and you should definitely check out her humorous post featuring family photo bloopers from this Easter weekend...we've all been there!

With Love,

Linking up with Walking in Memphis in High Heels and Style Elixir!


  1. Lovely outfit! I love the button up and bag and of course.. How you styled it!

  2. Dear Beautiful Ashleigh.

    Last time I stopped by your lovely blog was a month ago and the month before that. But I haven't left you any comments. Since Spring is here and it inspires me to do more, I promise to stop by here more often and comment more often, too. =)

    Anyway, this is such a cute Spring Outfit. I love it very much. Those heels and that bag are Gorgeous. The Mint looks perfect with the other soft colors. I also like the new design of your blog. I redesigned mine too.

    And I am following you on Bloglovin. I would appreciate it if you follow too. I changed the URL of my blog so I lost all of my followers. Stop by when you have a chance. I'd love to have you and for you to see the latest from me. I am doing a 30 for 30 remix challenge this month. Check that out!

    Hope you had a Great Easter. Stay Beautiful and have a lovely week. Ada. =)
