FASHION FRIDAY (mommy & me): Ash & Jax Roosevelt Murals

It’s FASHION FRIDAY!

PART II Of Roosevelt Murals

&

SPONSOR LOVE

We headed back down to Roosevelt to take some more shots with the murals down in that area.  Since it’s one of the art districts in Phoenix, the murals come and go before you know it sometimes.  So you really have to catch them quick.  I absolutely love this southwestern inspired one, which I felt would be perfect for some southwestern inspired accessories.

I just go these earrings from one of our sponsors!  Persophone’s Place!  I absolutely love them.  They are supper long and beaded.  They go with just about everything I own . . . I have fairly simple outfits and when you have such a cool pair of statement piece earrings, sometimes it’s great to tone down the other parts of your outfit (in my opinion).  She’s has shorter versions if you prefer!

Unfortunately, I rarely get to wear them right now . . . Jax LOVES it when I wear dangly earrings.  And my ears LOVE it when he pulls them too (insert dripping sarcasm here)!  I get to wear them at least once a week when I’m working and he’s hanging out with his dad on his day off.

This dinosaur mural is across the way from the southwestern one.  Its so cute!  Feels really funky and I believe it’s spray painted on.

By this time, jax was starting to loose it and get super squirmy.  He wants to be off running around (although he hasn’t quite figured out the walking/running part, but he can sure book it in a crawl).

I’m wearing forever21 top and tank (man – forever21 is SO affordable, $5 tank tops), H&M pants, Target ballet flats in a cool bright colored southwestern pattern, thrifted jewelry, and you can get my fantastic earring here – at Persephone’s Place.

on jax: thrifted Jack & Jill gray linen shorts, and thrifted vintage yellow polo shirt.

hope you enjoyed Fashion Friday!  check out the cool murals around Phoenix when your in town.

have a great weekend! ash

Fashion Friday: Easter Inspired

It’s Fashion Friday!  As our theme for the past week or two has been about Easter . . . so too is this one!

Jax and I choose outfits that would be fit for any Easter Brunch with a little vintage flare.

We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to sport some amazing Etsy finds.

On Jax – an adorable pair of Wool Herringbone Little Boy Pants by HughFielding.  This shop has some totally cute little kids clothes.  You should check them out.  The pants were inspired by bespoke mens fashion.  They are 100% wool herringbone with a blue striped mens shirting cotton detail.   The herringbone is supersoft midweight brown/black with an Elastic waistband.

The second Etsy find is a pair of Lace Earrings by Bumble.  They are totally amazing and every mother needs a pair!  She has other beautiful jewelry on her site as well.  What I love about them  . . . they are romantic, yet edgy.

Also on me, a yellow and white cherry dress from forever21 with leggings, leather sandals, and a cute bird necklace I got as a gift a long time ago.

Make sure you take a look at the Etsy designers I mentioned above.  Next week, we’ll share a little more with you about them and their products (plus a suprise giveaway).

Have a fantastic Easter weekend!  May it be filled with egg dying and all the activities and food you enjoy.

ENJOY! ash

fashion fridays: Ash & Jax – South Mtn PHX

It’s FASHION FRIDAY!

This shoot fell on a day we ran errands, so being comfortable was one of my main concerns.

We went to Roosevelt Row in Downtown PHX.  This is where they hold FIRST FRIDAY A.R.T.S. MARKET ( as the name implies – its the first friday of every month) for the Indie Art Scene.

They recently added some new murals to the area, which we’ll showcase in a number of Fashion Fridays.  There were too many to do in one and we didn’t think it would do them justice by doing all of them at once!  There are a few pretty funny pics (well at least two that are LAUGH-OUT-LOUD type photos, so don’t be shy, go ahead and laugh out loud if you think Jax and I look funny – or just me!  Laughing is good for the soul).

Jax was definitely starting to feel the – “I don’t get what’s going on and I really don’t care” – bug!!  Jax’s face – PRICELESS.

Such a great mural!  So in the style of Shel Silverstein – whimsical, magical, and yet funky!

and  . . .

yes…remember at the beginning I said you would LAUGH-OUT-LOUD . . . well if you didn’t after THAT picture than I guess I can’t make you laugh.  I thought it was pretty funny.  The apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree in this picture!

Jax wasn’t really into this ONE . . . he’s so squirmy now and just wants to be on his own, moving about and crawling.  I think you can kind of see it in ALL of these pictures.

another silly grin from me, but who wouldn’t grin like this with a son like mine (i’m sure this is how all parents feel . . . especially when your son is trying to touch a big round cacti!).

enjoy! and have a great weekend! ash

fashion fridays: Ash & Jax – South Mtn PHX

It’s FASHION FRIDAY!

I did a bit of stylized editing, sorry if the coloring is annoying, but I had fun trying to make them look a little vintagey…did it work?

We went up to the top of South Mountain Park Reserve in Phoenix, which “is the largest municipal park in the country”.  It’s beautiful if you are the type of desert rat that appreciates the beauty of the desert in all it’s glory, bright ambiance, and scorching, leather built in air  . . . I am a desert rat.

Phoenix behind us with all of it’s smog filled glory . . .

I have quite the silly grin here.  Jaxon can you say . . . “mommy, you’re a dork sometimes” :) !

are we born desert rats…I think jax was by default.

enjoy! and have a great weekend! ash

ps... thanks again to Brynn with movement restoration massage!

Orange you glad it’s Fashion Friday?

Ash was kinda busy yesterday to do Fashion Friday so I decided to throw one together for you guys this evening.  It’s too cold for me to wear cute little dresses here but I’m definitely thinking of spring!  And when I think of where to buy cute dresses I automatically think of modcloth.com.  By far one of my favorite stores to shop at!  All of their vintage inspired clothing is just to die for!  So here’s an outfit I’ve been hoping to buy:

Glamour Power to You Dress in Garden from modcloth.com, white and yellow vintage beaded necklace from KatcherrFancy on etsy.com, vintage kitten heels in mustard yellow from squirrel397 on etsy.com. 

Pair with some cute pointed flats or heels in mustard yellow and a chunky necklace.  If my whole wardrobe consisted of variations on mustard yellow things I’d be a happy camper :)
