Hey everyone! Happy Friday and more importantly, happy Earth day! I know this is off-topic, but I had an amazing time at Rihanna’s concert on the 20th! It was amazing; I’m forever in love with Riri. If you went, I hope you enjoyed it! It’s been SO beautiful here in Edmonton, I was so happy to walk around yesterday on a very, VERY sunny morning to shoot for this post.

Hi there! Happy Monday funday! Hope you had a lovely Easter long weekend with friends and family; whether you celebrate Easter or not, Continue reading “#OOTD: My Dad’s Bday!”
Hello there! Hope yall having a great day. I am currently in Prince Edward Island having a mini vacay! How is it on the east coast? It’s a little quieter and spacious than back home, that’s for sure.
As many of you know (if you follow me on IG, Facebook, Twitter, or just know me personally) I have created a handmade jewelry company called Jewel Sofia. You can find images of all my items on the website and where/how to purchase! I’m really excited about this new adventure, it’s been a longtime dream of mine and I hope and pray you all love my items too.
Anyways, here is a simple look I put together to showcase some Jewel Sofia bracelets. Neutrals look great with a splash of color, which is what I did here. Without any accessories, this would just be a boring, camel colored midi dress, however, I spiced it up a little by adding the main color of teal to the mix. With the teal in the shoes matching the bracelets and necklace, it almost makes it pop more than if I just had one or the other. Enjoy the photos! Note: it was extremely sunny on this day which is why my eyes are squinted or not looking at the camera haha.
Hello everyone! Here is an #OOTD & a #FlashbackFriday at the same damn time! I finally graduated university about two months ago! It was a great weekend spent with the people I love. I am so very happy to have finished a degree… Continue reading “#OOTD: My University Grad!”
Hey everyone! For my Canadians out there, how was your August long weekend? I just wanted to share this quick look I wore, about a week ago, to a little blogger brunch I went to with a few fellow Edmontonian bloggers! It was TONS of fun, lots of conversation about blogging, style, web servers, and random topics to do with whatever! I decided to dress up a little, I LOVE dresses, and if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll also have seen these shoes about a MILLION times…they’re just so comfy and the neutral beige fits with just about any outfit. Anyways, enjoy the photos below, thanks for stopping by! Have a lovely Tuesday!

Happy Thursday everyone! Lately it’s been a little stormy out but it’s still summer and that means…keep up the bright colors! I love effortless dresses that you can just throw on quick, yet still look polished. This pink dress from south Edmonton boutique, J. Lea, does just that. It’s beaded detailing around the neck and down the middle allow you to look accessorized without throwing on much jewelry. I just paired this with a watch, but some dainty bracelets, even a simple beaded bracelet, and some classic diamond earrings would look great too. Thanks for checking out the blog and have a lovely weekend! Outfit details at the bottom with links to the product’s page! Take care!
Everyday outfit for not-so-cold winter days! Scarf & Jeans – Crush & Co. Ankle boots, Earrings, & Purse – Aldo Leather Jacket – not too sure (few years old lol) Shout out to my dad for taking the photos! 🙂 Continue reading #OOTD: Everyday “Chillin’” Outfit
Hey everyone! This past Tuesday, Dapo (aka Lord Ski Photography) and I decided to take advantage of the freshly fallen snow and have a winter photo shoot. His friend Frank came along as his assistant. We took a few photos on the very top of a parkade that overlooked Edmonton’s beautiful downtown skyline, but we were shortly kicked off by a security guard…really though?! That didn’t stop us from getting nice shots at the City Hall, The Art Gallery of Alberta, and a park downtown. It as fun, I wouldn’t have spent the afternoon any other way…other than switching the temperature from -14C to +14C!
We also did something different this time… an outfit video! Shot and edited by Lord Ski Photography. Continue reading “Walking in a Winter Wonderland!”
Hey everyone! One thing I’ve been looking for, for awhile, is a romper. If you don’t know what a romper is, it’s basically a onesie. Bright colours are really welcoming to the eyes, great for summer days AND nights, and turn heads. This is why I REALLY love this romper. It’s a subtle way to stand out in a crowd full of little black dresses, or typical sundresses! Continue reading “#OOTD: The Romper!”
All white is a classic, timeless look that you can really wear anytime during the summer! What I love about wearing all white is that it’s bold, but a subtle kind of bold. You’re noticeable but not obnoxiously flashy, and it just looks clean, simple, and classy. Don’t get me wrong, you can still be ratchet wearing all white, haha, like if it’s too thin and see-through… but ANYWAYS, this is a look that I hope would inspire anyone that wants to wear all white. This past weekend I put together this outfit because I’m STILL undecided about what to wear to the Tastemakers’ Jive Glasshouse Garden Party tomorrow afternoon, which I will be hosting and interviewing people at! Check out the look below, details under photos as usual! For information about attending the Jive Glasshouse party tomorrow, official invitation is at the bottom of this post! Thanks 🙂

Hey everyone! Today I’ll be sharing three all-white outfits! Not only that, during the summer, it’s always great to wear white because it gives off a fresh vibe. I decided to show you three very different outfits. All with different themes: Fun & Flirty, Sexy & Independent, and Minimalistic! Whether it’s a warm or breezy day, you can look dope in all white! Just make sure to not spill red wine all over yourself haha. Today I had some adventures with my roommate, and since I had my parent’s Canon SLR camera in my possession, I made it an opportunity to finally get some new content up! I decided to try to do some of my own photos, it was a very sunny day today in Edmonton and was definitely causing some over-exposure! I tried to make them as good of quality to my capabilities lol. Anyways, I hope you like them! Enjoy!
1. The Fun & Flirty Look This look is very light and flowy. I’d definitely suggest it for an outdoor event, or a picnic at the park! I’m wearing a double-slitted white maxi skirt, plain white crop-top from Garage, my white floppy hat, some white gladiator sandals from Aldo, and a gorgeous, turquoise necklace from Aldo, as well! Continue reading “Ways to Wear: All White Everything!”
Hey everyone! I’m obsessed with maxi dresses and skirts, they are so easy to wear and honestly, so breezy and perfect for hot days! I decided to showcase one of my hobbies in this post along with the outfit. I make jewelry, and a LOT of jewelry. It’s something that I would like to focus more on in the future, as less of a hobby, but for now, I’m gonna bury myself in my homemade jewels! The necklace on it’s own looks just like this, all made by me (except the chains, I purchased from Wal-Mart, Michaels, or took apart old necklaces I was bored with). The colors in the picture of the necklace on me are a little off, the blue is more like the one of just the necklace itself. If you ever want one, I sell them by request, but I’m pretty busy, so I don’t really advertise outside of word-of-mouth or friends.
Just let me know by email (IYGAshley@gmail.com) and voila! I’ll make what you want.
Thanks for stopping by and check out the rest of the outfit below!
Hat – H&M
Maxi Dress – Bebe
Heels – Aldo
Clutch – Guess
