A lifestyle/ fashion blog from Portland & Eugene, Oregon fashion blogger Ashlei Louise. Photography by my boyfriend, Josh M. My life is spent in the usually rainy, sometimes sunny land of the Pacific Northwest, traveling around in our beat up old Ford truck, looking for new adventures.

Happy new year // merry christmas // happy holidays
HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Here's the song that inspired this post, "Sleepwalking" by Chain Gang of 1974. I feel like a lot of people make New Year's resolutions, but I'm never really honestly sure what to make mine. To eat more vegetables and be healthier? To be a nicer person and less angry? To...

Snow flower // ankit headphones
Hung out this day and took photos with my friend Michelle! Surprisingly, it wasn't cold like...at all! It was so sunny even though the ground was blanketed with snow! We walked a few miles to downtown and got pizza and went shopping. Along the way we came across a creek that was totally frozen, so...
Took this look a few days ago, and was really sad cause I thought all the files got corrupted! Thankfully they didn't, so here's today's look! It doesn't look it, but it seriously was like 20 degrees or something when these were taken. And the wind was blowing so hard! I can deal with rain and...
Me & you, as chilled as 1972
(Coat by Banggood, dress by Oasap, and necklace by Romwe)My hometown totally got dumped with a foot of snow!! We don't generally get this much snow, so this is really fun for once. Our truck broke down the day before Thanksgiving, so Josh and I ended up being about a week late going home to visit...
High rise drift off skies
Hey everyone!! Long time no post! I've been mostly without a camera for a long while, but have been taking a lot of photos recently, so here's one of the outfits! It's been really cold so far this fall, and, oddly enough, NOT raining! If you know anything about the Pacific Northwest from the...

Heavy metal thunder
These photos were actually taken awhile back, and for some reason I keep forgetting to post them! What's wrong with me, haha! When Michelle took these we were driving around and happened to pass this AWESOME old Ford truck, and we had to stop, it went so well with my sort of "grungy" outfit!Top is...

Cotton candy submarine // thank you for 14,000+ followers on lookbook.nu!!
Recently I wore this outfit to the Eugene, Oregon Rhododendron Garden! It was super hot the day I wore this, but even though the shirt was long sleeved I wasn't very hot! It's super breezy. I always love going to the garden!(Top is from Choies, shorts are from Romwe, and necklace is from...
Full bloom // starfall
So I really want to preface this post by saying: THERE WERE SO MANY MOTHERFUCKING BEES BY THESE FLOWERS. It's not that I expected anything different, but I wasn't expecting them to be so close to my face I guess. There's quite a lot of out takes of this shoot of me running away in terror. Not...
Jack daniel's tennessee honey
Long time no post! Portland life is treating me well, but I've been very busy! Today I wanted to show off a Jack Daniel's t-shirt I got from Freestylextreme! I'd be lying if I said I hadn't seen this very same shirt on other people about a million times, but I can't help it...I like Jack...

Me and Josh and Michelle went to Fern Ridge recreation area recently...
Wore this recently hanging out with my friend Michelle again, who was, as always, nice enough to take some photos for me! Although it's still spring here, it's actually starting to get really hot for Oregon! (Like in the upper 80's!!) Is it nearly summer where you are? If so, how hot is...
