Chic of the Week

Happy Friday! 

Today’s outfit is actually courtesy of my mommy!! When I moved out for college, she moved some of her stuff into my closet & so when I came home & saw this dress, I had to have it!! It’s crazy how stuff comes back in style! I can’t tell you details on this exact dress, but long floral dresses & jumpsuits are in this season, so go snag one!

I know this is a short post, so I decided to add “12 Things”. I’ve thought about doing it once a month, just to keep you guys updated on my life. So here goes… 

1.) Only 3 more weeks of school left!! I am so excited for summer because…

2.) I have a lot of exciting travel plans! I don’t want to say anything yet because nothing is for sure, for sure, but it’s about a 98% chance I’m going to some pretty cool places. 

3.) I also got an internship for this summer & fall! My school requires us to do internships for credit (do other schools too??) & so I’m excited to get that going because…

4.) I’m almost halfway through college! When this semester is over, I will only have two years left. I’m not sure how I feel about that. 

5.) I got my first OFFICIAL blogger mail from Chic Wish List which has jewelry, clothing & chic purses. I especially like their jewelry, so you will see a post soon. 

6.) I mentioned this before, but I recently purchased Aspyn Ovard’s presets for my blog & Instagram! (Make sure to follow along here.) I already love how they make my feed look.

7.) My mom told me that my name was almost Aspyn, spelled the same exact way! She & my dad love the aspen trees of Colorado, so that’s where the inspiration came from 🙂 

8.) I’m thinking about switching over my blog to be self hosted. I’m coming upon the year anniversary of starting this blog, so I’m ready to make improvements!

9.) I want to get my hair cut again before summer, & I’m thinking about getting highlights. YAY or NAY? Please help!! 

10.) I have finally watched Friends all the way through & it’s so good! I am so attached to the characters. I’ve been told I’m most like Rachel & she’s my fav character! 

11.) I bought a new house plant that isn’t a succulent & I feel like it’s going to die & I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong! I water it & keep it in the sun for 4-6 hours per the directions, but it doesn’t look like it’s thriving. So any plant people, please help me. 

12.) I am watching The Office & it was just the fake fire scene & I’m dying laughing. Best scene in TV history ever.

Happy Friday!

It is already so hot here in AZ that I have been struggling to find something to wear everyday.  I will always love the warmth & Arizona is home to me through & through – but I can’t say I missed this weather :/

This cute dress is from Forever21. I love that store so much because it always has trendy seasonal wear for cheap, but I try not to go overboard because I know that’s bad for the environment to recycle clothing so much! But I do usually splurge on one must have. As soon as I saw this yellow dress I had to get it!! I am loving mustard yellow/yellow so much lately & thankfully, it’s in this season! I paired it with my brown sandals & a black sunhat.

I also went ahead & splurged on Aspyn Ovard’s Lightroom presets this week. I had been debating whether or not I wanted to spend money to get a filter, but I am in love with her feed & personality, so I decided to go for it! I’m trying to get really serious with my blog & have lots of plans to improve it this summer, so every little step I take will help me get to where I want to be!

Shop this Look: 

Hat – Braided Edge Floppy Hat

Dress – Button-Front Mini Dress

Shoes – Faux Leather Thong Sandals

Happy Easter weekend!

I don’t know about you guys, but Easter is actually one of my favorite holidays. I love the food & family time & of course, PEEPS & chocolate.

This week’s outfit of the week was taken last summer in Chicago. I love that city, & wish I were there right now! You can read all about my trip here! The spring semester cannot go by quick enough! I don’t think I’ll be visiting Chicago again, but I do have some exciting travel plans 😉

Anyway, I have done a previous outfit of the week on this same look, but I thought I would bring it back because it’s officially spring weather! I sometimes have a hard time figuring out what to wear when it’s so hot out, but a bodysuit is the perfect choice. It could even work for internships & jobs if you dressed it up with a blazer!

I hope to get some more outfit pictures taken this weekend so I can come back next week with some new inspiration for you guys! I have also added a “Shop this Look” section to the bottom of this post so you guys can get all the outfit details.

Have a great Easter weekend & don’t forget the reason for the season 😉

Shop this look: 

Bodysuit – Scoop Neck Bodysuit

Shorts – Frayed Denim Shorts

Shoes – Keds Distressed Slip-On Sneakers

Sunglasses – Tinted Aviator Sunglasses

Bandana – Polka Dot Bandana

This week’s outfit of the week is actually from a shoot I did last summer! I never shared these pics & this is ~hopefully~ the last of the hot weather, so I thought it would be appropriate to share one more summer look before it’s all sweaters & boots! There is a super cool artsy district near where I live & it’s perfect for photo shoots. Also, Flashback Friday to my long hair!!

I don’t know the details of this outfit because if I’m being honest, I think I gave the shorts to Goodwill & went & bought that new pair I have that I talk about all the time. (Find the details here.)

But here is some photo shoot inspiration! Whenever people ask me how I am comfortable in front of the camera (trust me, I still feel awkward a lot of the time) I tell them to make sure to wear something they’re comfortable in because that will make the modeling part 10x easier! I had a lot of fun with this shoot because I wasn’t worried about a wardrobe malfunction or anything like that! And make sure to shoot with a photographer you’re comfortable with & knows your style. Just some tips 🙂

It’s the weekend…

This week’s outfit of the week is one of my favorites. I got it at H&M this summer & it’s so soft & comfy. And you guys know me; that’s all I wear! I love it for a long day of classes because it looks cute, but it’s not stuffy & is nice for sitting all day. I paired it with some denim shoes that I got from Urban Outfitters a long time ago, although it could be paired with anything. I was going to link it, but I can’t find it on the site! :/ But striped dresses are pretty in, so you can probably find one elsewhere!

In other news, I’m currently tanning & sweating so bad! Fall has not come to Arizona yet, let me tell you. But get ready to see lots of sweaters & boots soon… Also, I got shoes today! I ordered them a few weeks ago from lucaandgrae.com & they are so cute! Go check out my insta story to see them 😉 @jaslynravenscraft

P.S. Don’t forget to let me know how many times a week you want to hear from me… xo

Happy weekend!

This week felt kinda short because of the three day weekend so that was nice! School is still stressful, but I survived another week so.

This week’s outfit of the week is super casual (I feel like I say that all the time?? But I like to wear comfortable stuff because it makes me feel so much better.) This is basically my day-to-day look, especially during the week when I have class. If I’m not in a look like this, I’m in a dress because they are so easy.

I’ve talked about these pants before, but they are from Old Navy & have a high waist which is the only kind of pant I like to wear. No butt bearing for me please! I don’t remember where I got the top from because I’ve had it for awhile now… I didn’t use to like stripes because I thought I didn’t look good in them, but now I think they’re pretty cute & flattering. My shoes are Steve Madden & I want to get more like them because I’m loving the slip-on style.

I’m about to go do some retail therapy so you guys will hopefully start to see some new things here soon…

This wall is about to be the background for every single one of my pictures… it’s right by my apartment & matches my theme. Win-win.

Happy three day weekend!

I know this post is a day late & I’m so sorry! I feel like I’ve literally been running around this week to get everything done. Ever since school started I feel like all I talk about is how busy I am! But it’s true. College is a crazy, fun time.

As for my outfit, it’s the same pic that’s in my bio! (Go check it out under “About”) I thought I might as well give you guys the details since it’s there all the time!

The skirt is from Forever21 & the shirt is from Old Navy. The top is an extra-large because I’m currently loving big shirts! I know I’m a little late to that trend, but they are so comfy & easy to style. I forget where my tote & hat are from, but I know you can get similar stuff at Target!

Also, throwback to when I had long hair! Recently I’ve been missing my long hair & I think about growing it back out at least a few times a week! It could be because I don’t know a lot of short hair hairstyles so if any of you guys have cute short hair ideas please let me know! I’m having the hair woes :/

It’s Friday!

Today’s outfit of the week is another look from vacation. I like to call it my “travel outfit” because it’s super comfy for long car rides, but can be turned into something casual for stops or last minute family visits. I don’t know about you guys, but when I travel I want an outfit that is comfortable, but that I can also turn into something nice because changing in the car is hard!

This mural is on the campus of Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. There was a tunnel filled with positive graffiti & art that you could walk through. I thought it was a pretty cool idea…

I’ve been slacking on the blogging & posting because I literally feel like I’ve been running these past two weeks to get everything done. But I’m all moved into my apartment & it’s slowly coming together. My roommates already feel like family & we have so much fun together, I honestly forget to post on Instagram & check my blog. But I’ll focus more, I promise 😉

I have also been trying to figure out future posts & get them ready to go because homework will soon consume my life… I want to keep the posts steady & relevant so please, please let me know what you like or want to see more of! I got a lot of positive feedback on my last OOTW, & that’s what makes it all worth it. 🙂 So feel free to comment or DM me because I would love to chat & know what you think!

For this week’s outfit, I paired a light pink bodysuit from Forever21 with shorts from H&M that I’ve talked about a bunch because I actually love them. I wasn’t sure how to feel about the bodysuit trend, but this one is super comfy & you don’t have to worry about it becoming untucked (idk how to describe it) from your shorts, like you would a t-shirt or tank. Instead of  a bodysuit, you could even wear a one piece with shorts for the beach or beginning-of-the- school-year pool parties. I opted for white Keds because I was exploring the Windy City (expect a blog post with lots of pics!!), but I think sneakers are the best shoe for this look. But feel free to play around with it! That’s why I love fashion; there are no rules.

Have a great weekend & don’t forget to read my last post raving about my favorite planners!

Today’s outfit of the week includes pieces that I’ve talked about before, but I put them together to create something totally different.

The shorts are from H&M & they are the first pair I’ve actually really liked. And the top is another favorite from the LC Lauren Conrad collection. (I just love all her stuff!) The shoes are from a post a few weeks ago, but they are basically the only shoe I’m wearing these days! If there is one shoe you need, it’s a basic brown sandal.

This look is easy to recreate & mix & match pieces with. You could also pair with Keds & a backpack for a more casual look for class.

You can’t tell much in this picture, but the wall was the brightest yellow color & it was just calling my name for a picture! I have the mind of a blogger & avid Instagrammer for sure…
