Meet SideSmileStyle

Ashley is the epitome of a fashionista. With her daily outfit posts, she never seems to disappoint her readers. Not only does she have an eye for design and color, but I happen to think she has some of the best pieces of jewelry, I can't even imagine what her jewelry box must look like at home! I have gotten the pleasure to connect with Ashley via the blogging world over the past few months, and knew I had to share her adorable blog, SideSmileStyle. I was also lucky enough to ask her a few questions--take a peek! 

What is your one unexpected go-to item in your closet? I don't know about unexpected, but I've gotten a lot of mileage out of my button down denim shirt from H&M. It's my go-to for mixing up an outfit. 

What do you predict to be the trend of the fall? I'm predicting that the Great Gatsby will be a big influence on fall fashion. I've always been mesmerized by the fashions of the 1920's, and can't wait to introduce a little Daisy Buchanan into my wardrobe!

What's one piece of clothing or accessory that you could never go without? I have a scroll heart ring I got from Alex Monroe. I wear it every day and feel completely naked without it. I love jewelry that puts a smile on your face when you look at it. Ick, just grossed myself out, but I really do love that stupid ring. Haha!

How would you define your style in 3 words? You tell me! Haha just kidding! I'd have to say Classic, Quirky, and Fun!

What's your favorite current trend? I can't get enough of neon right now! It's just such a fun trend. I may look back in 10 years and think, "hello traffic cone!" but right now I just love it. OH! and arm parties...I'm all about the arm parties, the Man Repeller really tapped into something amazing with that one.

Where do you find inspiration for your outfits? I watched a lot of classic movies and musicals when I was little. Singing in the Rain, Breakfast at Tiffany's, It Happened One Night, Funny Face--more times than not these early influences slip into my everyday wardrobe. I also get a lot of inspiration from magazines, other bloggers, and of course...Pinterest. 

What inspired you to start your own blog? I've been reading different style blogs for years (the usual suspects: Atlantic Pacific, Into the Gloss, Cupcakes and Cashmere) and one day I just decided to go for it! It's been really great having a creative outlet and connecting with so many like-minded fashion girls. 

Thank you so much Ashley for taking the time to answer a few questions for me!
