A lifestyle/ fashion blog from Portland & Eugene, Oregon fashion blogger Ashlei Louise. Photography by my boyfriend, Josh M.

Obsessions & collections: bindis & body jewelry
I'm sure we all have a few obsessions--things we collect ridiculous amounts of because we're just THAT entranced by them. One thing I've always had a metric ton of are bindis! Bindis are decorative dots one wears on their forehead, between their eyes, in the location of the third eye chakra....

California dreamin' ~ trip pt. 2!
Our friend Ryan took film photos of us on his old camera from the 1970's! The photo below is actually a photo of 4 of us friends, but for some reason the camera messed up and we all turned into pillars of light!These shirts are from Ryan's clothing line, Lemurian Paradise! Love the designs he...
Holly's spring wedding!
A few weeks ago, one of my very best friends from High School, Holly, got married to our friend Jake! I was lucky enough to be invited to be one of her bridesmaids! This was a first time for me--I've attended a small handful of friend's weddings, but never been in the wedding party! (You can see...

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...

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...

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...
