FASHION FRIDAY: Returned from China, Meg & Dee

Meg & Dee are finally back from China!  And Jax & I are up visiting them!

Hopefully you’ll see much more of us after this week.  The transition for all of us (their return and our travel up north) has resulted in us being a little lax in our postings.

Here are some pics of Meg and Dee.

Hope you have a great weekend!

ENJOY! ash

Fashion Friday: Celebration!

It’s Fashion Friday!

We are all dressed up for my little sister’s graduation!  Master’s that is.  They had the graduation in downtown Phoenix and then we went and celebrated later a Gallo Blanco.

I’m wearing a blue and white striped top I bought at forever 21, a black sequin pencil skirt, sandals, and Jeannie Richard band ring and earrings  (the one’s in our giveaway!).  The band ring and earrings are made out of beads and are super fun for dressing up.  They are all black, except the earrings have some gold beads in them.  They are a nice addition to any outfit, not just a semi-dressy one. (If you like them go and buy a pair at Jeannie Richard because they’re having a Post-FAB 25% sale till May 31, code POSTFAB25 at checkout).

On Jax, black gap pants, and blue babies-r-us polo he got from his auntie (the one I mentioned about the graduation and celebration at Gallo Blanco) the four above pics were taken at Gallo Blanco, out back in their pool area.  It’s a very retro, older style hotel.  The food is this amazing, fresh southwestern style food.  I would love to go back and stay there some time or take more pictures!  In their pool area they have a waterfall glass wall that runs almost the length of the pool area.  It’s really beautiful.

Don’t forget to enter our mother’s day giveaway for a chance to win all of our mother’s day’s goodies, plus these ones that I’m wearing in the pictures!

Hope you all have an amazing mother’s day!  I know I will no matter what it is as long as it involves my son!

ENJOY! ash

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 (mommy & me): Ash & Jax Scottsdale Civic Center

It’s FASHION FRIDAY!

This week we went to Tempe Town Lake.  It’s pretty, but next time we’ll go when it’s a little warmer and perhaps greener!  We are definitely going casual these days.  I think it’s hard not with a child!

I’m wearing gray skinny jeans from H&M (thrifted at Buffalo Exchange), but they are definately starting to get a little baggy as I continue to loose my baby weight!  I didn’t realize they were sort of baggy (maybe they only look that way to me).  I love mixing styles – the dolman sleeve, tribal shirt (thrited at Buffalo Exchange)  with funky 70’s inspired blue earrings.  I also like combining colors that don’t necessarily match, different hues of blues, etc.  And black ballet flats from Target.

Does it work?  I hope so!  Otherwise I’m sure I look pretty silly right now!  LOL.

Jaxon’s wearing a cute grey and white striped shirt from Carters, earth green Gap jeans (that have an elastic waste band – the waistband is actually elastic – not the kind where the elastic is sewn into it causing bunching – I think they’re genius).  On Me: Georgia O’Keeffe inspired ring (the off white rose one), and copper wire ring (thrifted).

ENJOY! and have a great weekend!

FASHION FRIDAY (mommy & me): Ash & Jax PHX Art

It’s FASHION FRIDAY!

We went to the Phoenix Art Museum this week (well just outside because they had a cool dinosaur sculpture by Sui Jianguo out front – click the link to read more about the sculpture).  So here are the pics from the shoot!

I don’t know where your little ones are in their developmental stages, but Jax is crawling on all fours now!  He’s a maniac, he never sits still anymore.  It’s amazing to see.

Sorry my posts are so short lately!  Taking care of a 9 month old, taking 3 classes, and making onesies for our shop is a little time consuming.  Meg is transitioning from US to China and will be here a little more often soon (she did Wednesday Wants yesterday :)).  Our postings should get more regular pretty soon as we figure out our schedules.
ENJOY! and have a great weekend!

PS: here’s a pic of jax, me, and our photographer – Brynn, my sis, with Movement Restoration!
i love that even the dinosaur is smiling in this pic!

FASHION FRIDAY (mommy & me): Ash & Jax Scottsdale Civic Center

It’s Fashion Friday!

Jax and I had a great day!  We hung out with Jax’s Aunties, Brynn & Trisha (we hang out with them a lot, we LOVE them).  We just kind of relaxed, went to food truck fridays downtown, and then walked around their neighborhood.  Here’s some shots from our afternoon walk…

Your probably going to see a lot of Jax & I for the next couple of months.  Meg and Dee (and Nate) are in China for the spring semester working on her PHD panda study!  Yes, she might just be the luckiest girl alive (oh wait it’s probably dee who’s the luckiest girl alive- she gets to be around panda’s at just under 2 years of age, not to mention she has meg for a mommy! ahem, and nate for a daddy :) )…

Anyway, I’ll try to make my posts great, but I apologize ahead of time if I get a little old! LOL…

ENJOY & HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND! ash

PS>>> here’s a sneak peak of jax’s valentines day cards…
