Ralph Lauren Classic Jumpsuit


Classic style. 
It's one of my go-to looks and one of my favorite styles to wear. There's just something so chic and simple about it and when I think "classic" I immediately think Ralph Lauren
His nautical, classic and chic designs are always right up my alley and I secretly want to escape to the Hamptons every time I watch one of his runway shows during New York Fashion Week. 

When the marketing department for RL reached out to me for a collaboration, you better believe I hopped right on it (after yelling out loud & jumping up and down with excitement of course!) I love everything about Ralph Lauren, so picking out some pieces from their new Lauren by Ralph Lauren summer collection was a VERY easy decision.

Travel Guide: Paris


On to Paris we go!
I posted about our time in London a couple of weeks ago and thought it was about time I brought you guys all the details of our next stop...PARIS.
From London, we took the Eurostar train to Paris - about a 2.5 hour trip. (Make sure you purchase your Eurostar tickets ahead of time before you go).
I love taking the train from London to Paris, as you get to see a lot of the French countryside, it's relaxing and a very comfortable ride.

Lightweight Blush Cardigan


Happy Monday friends!
I wanted to take a quick break from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (since almost everything is sold out anyways! SO crazy) and share with you a little bit about my absolute favorite lightweight cardigan at the moment. Since it is still 90 plus degrees here in California, it's hard to think about sweaters, boots and scarfs BUT the great thing about this sweater is that it is VERY light. Even though it's 90 degrees during the day, it can still get a little breezy at night, which is where this great cardigan comes into play.

Dressing Room Diaries - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017



Well it keeps on coming! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is still going strong and is finally open to EVERYONE starting tomorrow. If you watched my Instagram story yesterday (@ashdonielle), you saw that I did a try on session with some of the pieces that are still in stock and available online. To make it easier for you, I thought I would also do a blog post including prices, sizing and an honest opinion of the pieces I picked.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Top Picks Overall


It's here! It's here!
One of the BIGGEST sales of the year is LIVE and ready for you to shop! Are you ready?! Well, don't worry if you aren't, because I am and I'm here to share my top picks from the sale with you. Now, let me first off tell you that this was HARD. There are so many good items on sale so it was very difficult to narrow it down. Good news?! I got access to the entire online Nordstrom product catalog a couple of days early so I was able to really research and prepare some great content for you guys for the next couple of weeks!

Current Mascara Review


Let's talk mascaras. 
I've done a couple of beauty reviews on here in the past and mascara has always been included in those posts. Why?! Because I think mascara is a MUST. Even on those days when I don't feel like getting ready, I still find myself brushing my cheeks with a little blush & applying a little mascara. It really makes you look more wide eyed and awake even when you are secretly not. (Whooo hoo!)

I've been loving a couple of mascaras lately and before I jump into all the details, let me first warn you that none of these are drugstore mascaras. My go-tos use to be Maybelline or Cover Girl brand but once I started using higher end mascaras, I couldn't go back. Yes, drugstore mascaras are good. But these ones I've been using for over 6 months now are AMAZING. So worth every penny.

2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale PREP!


Happy July!
Can you guys believe it's here?!
 I'm not going to lie. There is only one reason and one reason only why I love July so much.
This is by far my favorite sale of the year not only because the trends are always on point for the upcoming season, but the deals are amazing. You can get new designer handbags for 40% off & other closet staples for such a steal. This is the time of the year when I try to stock up on fall necessities like a good coat, a classic black dress or an expensive pair of designer boots that will last me for years.

One Night In London


Alright, I'm finally doing it. 
I'm finally taking the time to sit down and blog about our AMAZING Europe trip. (These are the toughest & most time consuming blog posts to do, so bare with me!) 
So where do we begin!? Let's start in London.
