I sometimes try to imagine myself 20, 30, 40 years from now (a habit that I'm sure everyone has at least occasionally) and I always wonder mostly about Future Ashley's wardrobe. Will I still be running about in lace dresses with giant peter pan collars and colorful tights? All signs definitely point to yes. I've always hated the concept of "age appropriate" dressing, mostly because that does not leave me room to dress like a kid sometimes. And we all need to dress like kids every once in a while... if only to remind us that getting dressed in the morning can be silly in the best possible way.

I love how you always make the everyday look like an adventure. The first photo is perfection and the movie theatre concession stand image is amusing in the best way. Was no one else around in the theatre? :)

I totally agree! I think it's all about how it makes you feel. And you look great in this! Love the pretty lace and great colored tights!

I was just having a conversation about this today as one of my Boss's had a birthday and there is no way I could even BEGIN to guess her age. She must be 50+ - but she dresses so brilliantly it is so difficult to tell how much +. It is all about personality!

You look super cute. And if you plan like dressing like this when you hit the Golden Years, you're going to look absolutely gorgeous. Go for it! :] *new follower
