A Ghetto Outfit Post

It was this tweet that blew up Twitter

 "I look so Southern Right Now. Like, seriously, Pass the Corn on the Cob." 

(and by “blew up” I mean two people responded back)

So what did I mean by “looking So Southern?” Well I’ll tell show you.

THIS is what I wore to work...
 (please love the crap-tastic quality of pictures my phone takes.)

....and for some reason I felt like I just looked extra Southern….very wholesome or clean (as opposed to my grungy sloth look) ;) and not very Metro Atlanta

I mean, throw some pearls around  my neck and I’d be ready for some Sorority shin-dig.

And speaking of college.....college was the best when it came to advice for outfit choices. Never did you have to worry if something was crossing the line from street-savvy to street-walker. Out of 90 girls on a floor, there had to be someone who would give you an honest opinion. And if you needed the perfect accessory to finish off that spicy number, you could run two doors down and raid your bestie’s closet. 

But then you GRADUATE. And you move for work and you find yourself with no one to ask advice for on your outfits....so naturally, you embrace technology and text outfits out for opinions. 

Which brings me to: 
The Crunk Outfit Post: A Celebration of Ashley's Outfits Over the Past Year

 aww I think this may have been when I was trying on outfits the first time I mistakenly thought I’d make it to see T Swift. 

 “Going out” (which clearly means I was meeting someone at Starbucks)

 Off to work

 Church

And there you have it....the world's most ghetto "outfit post" ever!

Happy Wednesday Doll-faces!
XO, A

Jess said...

You are too cute! I thought your outfit yesterday was very pretty - something I'd have worn ... if I wore dresses. :o) I need you to come to PA and go shopping with me ... for real.

Sarah said...

I am bad for wearing "starbucks" outfits when going out too. I show up looking way too casual. A few months ago, I met my cousin and his wife out for sushi and I, of course, rocked Jack Rogers and she and her friend showed up in black skinny jeans and sky-high high heels.. I felt like a dork, ha Maybe I need to let you put a little ATL metro in my wardrobe ;-)

Ashley said...

I love your style, Ash! Lets go shopping! :)

Lindsey said...

HAHA! That was not ghetto at all. LOVE your hair, want your boday and your outfits. You are too too too too cute! I have the same issue, I have no one to ask now. I resort to picture texting friends too. Woe is us.

SLOTH! Holla.

megan said...

Loving your Southern Belle look. But I love how you switch it up depending on your mood. :)

Shannon said...

I hope this isn't too lesbian creepy, but I love your shape. I was tall and leggy at one point in my life too. (never tan though - I'm the edward cullen of tan).


Right now I'm a beach ball.

You win.

Chelsea said...

Bahaha the tweet that blew up. You are the best. and I am growing to love twitter more and more with each day that passes. NOW. I agree with you about college and always having someone give you the honest to goodness truth about if your outfit was hot or not. I lived in a house with 5 others girls. But we had an honorary 6th roommate, his name was brent and he liked boys. And he also always was so honest with us! One time he told me my legs looked ashy and to put lotion on them hahaha. I miss him. anyways, I LOVE that work outfit you posted!! Soo cute, I want I want!

Katie said...

This isn't ghetto at all you crazy! I can't believe you look that nice to go to work..you would put me to SHAME if we worked together. Now I feel like I need to step my game up, but it probabl won't happen.

You are a beauty!

Alex said...
