sometimes it’s hard to find cute, neutral kids toys that wyatt will love but this little chalkboard laptop caught my eye immediately! because i’m guilty of being on mine all-too-much during the day, it’s the perfect thing to keep him creative and just like mom.

existing from aidan gray.

i have so long been a fan of aidan gray‘s original collection – in all it’s worn and throwback glory. the woven detail of this christopher salon chair from layla grayce is reminiscent of a plantation chair styling, with the comfort of simple cushioning – perfect for about any room in my house.

celebrating madewell : #madewellxneutralhue event

ashley of neutral hue at madewell styling event

we had so much fun at our summer styling event for Madewell, and as always our style pairings stayed true to our neutral roots but showcased the strengths of our opposing styles. my pieces always remain pretty timeless & classic – from the white button up, strappy leather flats & LBD – but I had so much fun with the perfect olive green shorts that Madewell had on hand, as well as sharing one of my favorite tips for staying neutral when you can’t resist a little color. my color “hallpasses” include such staple shades as navy, chambray, denim, & olive so going head to toe in the color helps to neutralize and add a bit of sophistication to the look.

especially when it is moody, fruity + savory like this with lavendar whipped cream from sweet paul magazine.  as the cooler season is ahead, it makes me yearn for the days when i can get some baking done for my friends + family… and begin planning my champagne + cookies party for the holidays.
