Recap of My Styling Event with Fab'rik

My "Vacay Chic" Picks!!

Happy Monday fabulous readers!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Today I wanted to do a recap of the event I hosted this past Saturday with fab'rik called "Vacay Chic with Ashley." It was an absolute blast!!! I was able to go around the store before the event started (and snap some of the pictures you see above) to choose my picks for what to wear when vacationing and displayed them for the event on my "vacay chic" clothing rack! This event came at the exact perfect time because so many people (including myself) are about to go on trips this summer. I had a blast styling everyone in some cute vacay #ootds and #ootns. Fab'rik has THE cutest collection of clothes that are seriously perfect for those vacations you're planning. My top 5, can't leave home without, must-have items that should be on your packing list include....

1) Rompers! Girls, I just can't get enough of a cute romper. The one I'm wearing above is my new summer fave. I love the coral color, and the lace is SO cute. I love that a good romper can take you from day to night, just by making minor adjustments to your outfit. Change your shoes (sandals or wedges during the day, heels for the night) and even your accessories (oversized tote during the day, clutch for the evening) to switch up the look. You can find the exact romper I'm wearing above HERE. I also picked up THIS romper for my upcoming trip!

2) Flowy dresses: I am absolutely obsessed with wearing dresses during this time of year, and vacationing is no different. There's nothing easier than throwing on a cute dress after you get cleaned up from a day at the beach! And, dresses are also light weight but cute enough to wear when sight-seeing on vacay. Throw on a cute sunhat with your dress for a chic daytime look. Of course you can see my new fave dress in my last post HERE.

3) Cute cover-ups: (that could double as a tunic): A cute cover-up is a must-have for any beach trip, or if there is a pool involved where you're vacationing! I like a cover-up with a bold print that serves as a statement piece to your beach day attire, but I also like the fact that some cover-ups could double as a tunic if you wore a tank top underneath, and paired it with shorts! Versatility is what I look for when packing for vacation. This cover- up HERE would be perfect to style as a tunic for an #ootd when you're away from the water!

4) Statement Wedges: You cannot go wrong investing in a couple of statement wedges this summer. I am currently obsessing over nude wedges because they really elongate your legs, and literally can be paired with ANY color. THESE will be my new go-to's this summer!

5) Bold Print Shorts: I am a firm believer in definitely having the "basic" colors of shorts in your closet (i.e., denim, black, white)....however, I also highly recommend in investing in a couple of pairs of fun print shorts! On first glance, it may look like multi-colored shorts may not go with anything, when in fact they go with SO MUCH. The key is to just match your shirt to one of the colors in the shorts. I can't wait to wear THESE on my upcoming trip. I also picked up these shorts HERE, which totally qualify as a bold print, BUT they have the added bonus of being in the black & nude color family so they will match pretty much any color you choose to wear with them! My personal fave is white with these shorts though ;). Can't wait to show y'all some OOTDs soon styling these!

I wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to fab'rik for inviting me to host this awesome event and all those who came. I love you all so much & I had a blast talking style with you!!!!

Finally,  I wanted to announce the giveaway winner of this GORGEOUS tassel necklace from the event on Saturday.......
