Lesson on Fashion

Shirt: Old Navy (exact), Jeans: Old Navy (exact), Boots: ASOS (exact)

This past Saturday, I taught a class for a Stake Young Women Activity for church, on fashion and beauty.  The basis of my thoughts was that the better you feel about yourself, the more confidence you have, and with more confidence comes better actions.  (If you ever have to do the same type presentation, let me know, and I'll email you my power point presentation!)

I had such a great time!  We talked trends, do's and don'ts: do wear black and brown together (as shown above), don't wear leggings with short shirts, and all sorts of other fun things.  

This (as I'm sure you've guessed) is what I wore for the presentation.  Pretty simple, pretty casual (per the dress requirements of the conference), and pretty classic.  Noel and the boys were my handy helpers getting the presentation set up and taken down!  (The babies got doughnuts from the meeting as well, which they thought was pretty cool.) :)

PS.  If you're looking for a great pair of skinny jeans, these are the ones to get.  Old Navy is rocking it out once again!

PPS. I asked a question on my Facebook yesterday (here), and would love your input and suggestions!

Sounds like a great meeting. There are many do's and don'ts in fashion that I think people don't realize! You look great and classic in your outfit and thanks for the tip on the skinny jeans.

You look amazing, Ashley! I love your boots. Are they comfortable? Your presentation sounds great. I see fashion the same way. Before I started blogging, it felt silly and vain to care about my clothes. But, now I see it as a confidence booster!

I bet everyone loved your presentation! ON Rockstar jeans are my fav too, but I've learned that they all fit differently depending on the color you get!

Could you GET any cuter? Of course not. Adorable, as always. I'm in desperate need of some black skinnies...love those boots!!

Kelsey Eaton said...

You look great and I love your hair! We had a similar conference as a stake Relief Society activity and it was a lot of fun. Plus it was fun to see the lds fashion bloggers that the lady used as examples.

That sounds like an awesome conference. Your workshop in definitely something girls need to hear!

I would've loved to have been there! And on the leggings thing... someone needs to open a tunic shop. You know, one that JUST sells leggings appropriate tops. I'd so be in.

I'm obsessed with brown and black together! Love your hair;)

Natalia Lynn said...

I love this outfit! Something I would totally rock, in fact, I might do that tomorrow! It sounds like a fun idea to talk about fashion like that. What a cool opportunity. I'm sure you rocked it!

ClaireWasThere said...

I love your outfit - simple but pulled together! Looks really good - I'm tempted to buy that shirt and the boots!

ClaireWasThere said...

PS: I also have the old navy rock star skinny jeans in the dark wash and I love them! They come in short sizes too which is great!

Sybil@PeaceitallTogether said...

I love my skinny jeans from Old Navy! I can't wear the Rockstar style, but the Sweetheart style is the best!! What a fun presentation :)

Hallie Oceanside said...

I love this outfit, and I LOVE that you are teaching others about fashion! I am so jealous of how fun it must be!

Love this classic look! That is awesome that you taught a class about fashion. I couldn't agree more with you about if you feel better about yourself you have more confidence and you are more likely to succeed and challenge yourself! I think so many times people think fashion is frivolous but it is about feeling good about yourself!

What a great lesson for the girls! I bet you did awesome :) I remember looking up to fashionable leaders in my ward. I am sure you are that for those girls.

Danavee said...

Old Navy IS rocking it out. Agreed.

I cackled at the leggings/short shirt tip. TRUE THOUGH!

Abigail said...

That chambray top is looking good on you! Also, love how you did your hair :)

I need to get that from you. I need to do something similar for our girls. Some of them think that a skirt if it goes close to your knees when you are standing is ok. And boy howdy, it is not! I just want to do something that teaches them about how a lady dresses, and how what she wears conveys how she feels about herself to the world.
Thanks for sharing!

Sam M said...

I am dying for a pair of black skinny jeans, but for some reason the rockstar jeans fit my body horribly. So sad, because that's the fun cute jeans at old navy.

Sarah said...

LOVE those boots and the casual chicness of your outfit! I'm sure you rocked it!!

Rachel said...

That sounds like such a cool opportunity to be able to teach a class of that sort! And this is a great casual look for you!

Okay, so I have noticed a lot of light brown boots with black leggings. But can I wear dark brown boots with black leggings? I haven't seen anyone do that yet. Thoughts??
