STYLE SESSION // 3 WAYS TO STYLE WHITE JEANS FOR FALL

JEANS | SHOP ALL THREE LOOKS

Hey friends! Tonight I’m showing you how to take your white jeans from summer and wear them in the Fall. I am a big fan of wearing white ALL year! Why not? It can be so chic!

First things first, these are my favorite jeans to date and I just found them ON SALE FOR $83. I have tried a million and one pairs of white denim. These fit my curves and make me feel amazing. They normally retail for around $140. Sometimes in Good American I size up to a 20, but in these I take a size 18.

POOL PARTIES // NOT JUST FOR SKINNY BABES

BIKINI TOP | BOTTOMS | ONE PIECE

If your body type is characterized as being skinny, I love you just as much as I love my big girls. This message is for everyone, but especially those who have been so highly underrepresented in the media.

I grew up skipping pool parties, or agreeing to go to them but conveniently “forgetting” my swimsuit. I’d go on vacation with friends and would refuse to get in the hot tub. I’d stick my feet in and chat instead of letting myself just live my life. Sound familiar?

WHY.

WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY.

TRY ON SESSION // WORKWEAR DOESN'T HAVE TO BE BORING

One of your biggest requests is now live! Today I teamed up with Rebecca from @mommyinheels to show you some looks that are workplace appropriate! Check out my IG story highlights for the full try on session. Below, I’ve linked everything! Most of these items are from LOFT, but I threw in a few pieces from elsewhere.

I am SO impressed with all of these things! I am wearing size 18-20, check out my story for full details on Instagram!

NYFW: PLUS SIZE CINDERELLA

DRESS | BELT | COAT | SHOES (dupe) | EARRINGS | NECKLACE | BAG

Saving the best for (almost) last… because this is my favorite. In the short history of House of Dorough, this is probably the most “me” look I’ve ever styled. When I was outfit planning for going to the CHROMAT fashion show (which was so diverse and so amazing, check my IG story highlights to see), I knew I wanted to wear this amazing coat by Tamara Malas. Often times, when picking a look, I start with one statement and then come up with the rest.

PINK + RED // NOT JUST FOR VALENTINE'S DAY

JACKET | SHIRT | BELT | BAG

Hi, my name’s Ashley and sometimes I just want to wear all of my favorite colors at once. CAN YOU BLAME ME THO? True story: I wear pink and red together on all occasions… it’s my own crazy personal preference, but I love it. I thought today would be a good day to share this look from NYFW that I love, because it’s Valentine’s Day and this cute little shirt says “AMOUR!” on it. NAILED IT am I right?!

WHAT TO WEAR WITH LEGGINGS

most asked question ever - which I totally understand why! It can be hard to find tops that are long enough or flattering with leggings.

Here are my current picks that you could wear with leggings. Most of these items are on mega sale right now (it’s like the pre-black friday sales are crazy out of control this year?!! - not complaining!!)

THE 5 ESSENTIAL MATERNITY CLOTHES TO BUY

Pregnant and overwhelmed with all of the different maternity options out there (or lack thereof, in some cases)?! GIRL, I GOT YOU. This time - I decided to try something different. I decided to buy JUST the basics, and all the other clothes I need I will size up. And guess what? After I have this baby… I will have an AWESOME POSTPARTUM WARDROBE of regular clothing that isn’t skin tight while I’m getting back to my regular mom-bod.

Here's what you actually need to have when it comes to maternity clothes - for everything else, just try to be INTENTIONAL about what you’re buying and how long it will grow with your belly and whether or not you’ll be able to wear it after baby.

"YOU AREN'T PLUS SIZE ENOUGH"

“What happens when you finally lose all the baby weight, what will you call yourself then?”

“What size are you REALLY, though?”

“Are you calling yourself plus size just because you’re pregnant?”

“What size were you before you got pregnant?”

These are just a few examples of questions I get ALL of the time. From real life friends and family, to people I don’t know on the internet.

PLUS SIZE & PREGNANT // PRINT MIXING & 40% OFF!

Happy Friday!! Here's another PLUS SIZE AND PREGNANT LOOK with NON-MATERNITY clothing! Minus the jeans. ;) I wanted to share this look because 1, THE SWEATER AND SHOES ARE 40% OFF. I REPEAT. This is not a drill. But 2, I wanted to show you how to amp up a simple tee-shirt look, in classic Dorough fashion. You know I can't help myself - I love mixing prints every chance I get!

WHEN THE BRA ACTUALLY FITS

FTC Disclosure: I've partnered with Natori, a brand I truly believe in, to write this post. Thank you for supporting House of Dorough. 

I have something I need to admit to you guys - ever since I had my first baby, and my bust size grew dramatically, I have not spent the time, money or energy on finding myself a new bra that fits me properly. Funny, because it is actually SUCH an important foundation garment and will make or break all of your outfits and confidence. 

EASY SUMMER STYLE WITH A SHIRTDRESS

HEY, ladies! It's summer, I'm pregnant, and yep - you guessed it, I'm hot ALL OF THE TIME. This means that one of my biggest goals every day when getting dressed is to find something EASY. Like, I basically just want to wear an oversized version of my husband's button up shirt all summer long. Is that so wrong?!

There's nothing I love more than a cute, EASY dress I can throw on in the Summer.
