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 (mommy & me): Ash & Jax Roosevelt Murals


PART II Of Roosevelt Murals



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


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…


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

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


Jax and I went to Scottsdale (AZ) Civic Center this week with my sister Brynn (her business – movement restoration).  I wanted to wear a skirt this week (next time!), but had to go do some errands where I would be walking up and down stairs . . . I don’t know about you but that always makes me feel like someone will be able to see up my skirt.

Like his one eyebrown lift?  He’s really good at it!

I don’t know if you notice, but one of Jax’s socks is darker than the other . . . he was sucking on it on the car ride over!  Little did we know it was completely wet by the time we go there.

Jaxon is now 8 months!  He’s growing up sooooo fast.  He’s  interested in everything!  Reaching out for everything.  Trying to touch everything.  He’s my little “Squirmer,” cause he just moves, and moves, and moves!

I’m wearing a used Juicy Couture sweater (forever21 gray sweater- $19.90 OR target missoni– $17.99), used Ugg boots (eCrater-$32), new H&M skinny jeans (only $20 bucks though!), used anthropology scarf (etsy similar– $30 OR etsy similar-$28 OR etsy similar – $58), and feather earrings from a local Tucson (AZ) artist (etsy similar – $12).  Everything I got at Buffalo Exchange, except my pants and under tank (forever21-$4.80).

Jax is wearing Carter’s Striped Onesie (similar – $16 OR carter’s version-$19.60), Gap Sale Kahkis (carter’s version-$14), and gray socks (carter’s 3-pack– $11).

ENJOY! and have a great weekend!

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


well . . . ah-hem, actually I’m a little late- Saturday.  I played hooky yesterday to go to the Tempe Festival of the Arts and founds some awesome jewelry and art!  I’ll post about that next time it’s my turn for fashion Fridays!

Here’s some images of me and jax in downtown Phoenix near and at the Phoenix Civic Center:

(ok – so i inserted the one above because I thought my face was kind of funny…)

Google image Phoenix Civic Center and you will find some cool images of the big wire sculpture.  It’s a pretty neat area if you are ever in downtown.

I can’t say I loved my outfit this time around, but I definately wanted to try and showcase some of the items we’ve been working on like Jax’s Evolution Onesie (size comparable to 6 month Carter’s Onesie) and the gray arm warmers I was wearing.  You can purchase these two items in our shop.  I love my large oxidized copper earrings I bought at one of the downtown phoenix saturday markets.  I’m wearing my boots I love sooo much (I think I need to find another pair), a pair of PRE-PREGNANCY thrifted Diesel jeans (i was pretty excited to find out that I could fit into them that day, which is why I wore them…).  I’m wearing a off white billowy top by Honey Punch and a striped scarf that I bought at Target last year.

baby yoga time!

Civic Center Sculpture from Filmore.


On ME: forver21 off white top & dark blue pants; etsy earrings by SilverSmack –Hammered Copper Turquoise Teal Patina Earrings; mod cloth boots (or target boots); gray arm warmers in our shop;  Target scarf 
On Jax: Tumblewee Evolution Onesies; Carters Twill Cargo Pants
ENJOY! and have a great weekend!
PS  . . . thanks to Brynn for taking our pics and Trisha for helping get Jax’s attention so we could get some cute shots of him looking at the camera.  What we learned: it’s good to have an assistant for the photographer who can make a baby smile (which Trisha can definately make Jax smile!), try not to get tree trunks centered right over head, be aware of trash cans in the back ground…

Don’t forget about our shop sale, ending December 5th!
