Skinny jeans + easy breezy shirt + trusty fedora.
Perfect Ash combo.

Total chill mode today.

And in case you didn't know,
 I love LA.

Grey matter.

 Second to my beloved black, I love the neutral color of grey.
I love all shades of grey from the lightest to the darkest.
And I love mixing the different shades. Hence, my grey on grey today.
This dress is perfect for summer. Light, airy and oh so ruffly. 
I've worn it in a more casual way sans belt with sandals. 
But, per special request by the hubbs, I dressed it up a little more today.

Weekend merriment.

Yesterday, the hubbs and I hit the streets of Dtown LA to experience all the fun at the Red Bull Soapbox Race. It was a beautiful, sunny day to share with about 115,000 other SoCalifornians.
I had the amazing opportunity to see the race up close with the rest of the media people while the hubbs worked on covering the event.  
We ended the afternoon with some photos of yours truly (Of course! What blogger wouldn't?!) and a couple of bacon wrapped hot dogs with everything. True LA steeez.

To see all the crazy pics of the Red Bull Soapbox Race, visit the hubbs here at KOUNTERKULTURED.COM and let him know I sent you!  ;)

Gettin' my groove back.

I thought I'd make the effort to do a post today. I was definitely feeling bloggerish for the first time in days.
 Still don't have my groove back completely, but sometimes I need to just do it.
There's a storm over SoCal and I think that the weather was being empathetic to my funkiness.
Thank you, Mr. Rain.
I owe you one.
I promise not to complain about how wet and gloomy it is the next time you're around. 

Lunchtime today was spent with the fam at a suuuuper yuuuumy all-you-can-eat Korean bbq place right in the heart of K-Town for a mere 10 buckaroos.
If you're ever in the area, make sure you hit up Sanya--nothing fancy, but I guarantee you a happy belly full of food!

And one last thing,
Happy birthday, Pops!
Love you always.

Tie dye for.

Happy Friday to everyone!
I know I've been slacking on the posts and I apologize.
 I'm in some kind of funk. Can't put my finger on it. I've been so uninspired lately. It's even caused me to stop shopping! Can you believe it?! Shocking, I know.

 Yesterday, my fam and I went to see the Pasadena Showcase House. Every year, a mansion is chosen and different designers come to decorate each room to their liking. This year's house was built in the 1920's and was originally used as a second getaway home. It had 14 different rooms and huge grounds that included a cottage, pool with adjacent pool house (of course!), outside sitting rooms and at least two beautiful gardens complete with monarch butterflies. It was AMAZING!
Anyway, this was the outfit I wore. A tie dye dress. Flowy and fun. But I topped it off with the blazer for some structure. And since we weren't allowed to wear heels in the mansion, I opted for some jeweled sandals in a muted grey. And I chose some jewelry that felt a little more "mansion" appropriate.  
The blazer was a good choice that night since we attended a private dinner party at the mansion after our tour and I was able to schmooze comfortably with some corporate folk.

As boho as it gets.

This week has been extremely warm. I've been living in dresses. They are my favorite thing to wear in warm weather because they are so effortless. I just throw one on and go. Unfortunately, after "womaning out" as I mentioned in the last post, I am left with less than half of the dresses in my closet to wear that I've acquired through the years. They're either too tight or too short for my taste and hips. Boooooo. Guess it's time to shop for new ones!

This dress on the hanger looked extremely too boho for me. I don't usually make the best boho girl because I prefer a little more structure with more defined silhouettes and color palettes. I am a city girl in love with black and a touch of rocker edge. But, at times will choose to play up my feminine, classic side. I may mix in a dress or shirt that looks bohemian into my city style but I would never be able to pull off the "just rolled out of bed, threw this on and my hair looks perfect" look on a daily basis.

What is your personal style?
