Recently, I lucked out and won a $200 giveaway to BooHoo.com. If you've never heard of it before, BooHoo.com is a UK based fashion company that reminds me of Forever 21 here in the states. It didn't take me very long to use up all $200 and I was able to get 14 items with the money! I purchased a lot of clothes for fall and a lot of items that I wouldn't normal pick out for myself (there's a jumpsuit OOTD coming soon!). 

This military vest is one of those items that I wouldn't normally chose for myself. I'm so glad I went with it though as it's so versatile and comfy! It's a great addition to my wardrobe especially with the coming fall season. I know it will look great over sweaters later in the season and it looks great with dresses in the late summer season.

As soon as I saw this dress (secret: it's actually a nightdress but I think it works for daytime, too…right?!), I had to have it! I've been having a serious case of wanderlust lately and would love to add many of these places to my "places I've been" list. 

This ended up being the perfect outfit for Rachael's going away party! In case you haven't heard, my BFF & sorority sister is going to teach in China for the next 10 months! I'm so excited for all the opportunities coming her way! Hopefully I'll be able to cure this wanderlust soon, too! Right now I'm trying to save up as much money as possible and the goal is to be abroad by January! Where should I go? Any recommendations?

How would you wear this military vest? 

With Love,
Ashliegh
