The Fashionista's Diary
Miami-Based Fashion & Lifestyle Blog by Lauren Ashley

As you all know, I recently went through a huge blogging rut. From the changing Instagram algorithm, to a huge move, crazy ex-roommate and job changes, it was hard for me to focus on The Fashionista’s Diary. I also lost a lot of my inspiration and no longer felt motivated to get a post up on the daily. This upset me so much because blogging was something that I was so passionate about and seeing myself lose that passion affected me more than you probably know. But, I’m glad to say that I’ve found my passion for blogging again and I’m going to share a few things that I practiced/did to get out of my blogging rut and find creativity again.

Happy Memorial Day weekend! I’m spending the weekend in Vermont with my family but wanted to share some of my favorite sales going on + what I love/have bought from them. I love long weekends and having Monday off because it makes that following week that much better. So, cozy up after the beach, pool or BBQ day with the fam and do some shopping. I know I have been doing that!

Happy Thursday and happy day it is because this top is on major sale! There’s nothing better than a lace peplum top. Add in the one-shoulder and, well… it instantly does get better! I love the lace detailing and how the color is a little bit deeper than a blush. I sized up to a size medium because I wanted to feel comfortable in it. I paired it with my favorite white jeans that I’ve had on major repeat lately.

Happy Tuesday! The weather in NYC has been so gloomy since yesterday and is making me want to stay home and watch Law and Order SVU reruns all day. I wanted to share with you this one-shoulder ruffle dress that I picked up while in Miami for Mother’s Day weekend. My sister completely rushed me so I had about 5-10 minutes to find things I liked and pay for them before meeting her to go do our nails. I felt like I was on one of those cooking shows where you only have 10 minutes to shop for groceries before cooking!

First things first, this is probably going to be my go-to spring/summer outfit. These summer shorts are so perfect and also come in a solid color here. I might order the beige because they are the perfect length and can be dressed up or down! I absolutely love the frayed hem of these shorts and they’re so comfortable. I swear, it’s like going out in pajamas! That’s a win-win in my book. I sized up to a medium in both the shorts and the top. I’ve actually worn this top way too many times already and I’m not even ashamed.

Happy Thursday! Wow, this week has felt so long. And the weather has been so up and down. One day sun, another day rain, another day cold. This is definitely why I’ve been getting sick SO much! But, I’m super excited to share this white blouse with you. If there’s one thing I love in my closet, it’s a great blouse that I can wear on a daily basis (after washing, of course).
