Hi! I'm Ashley, a lover of all things colorful and bright.
I'm a 20-something born and raised in the Mitten State (MI). I grew up in the small town of Hemlock, but moved to Metro Detroit in the summer of 2019. Many people assume I was raised in the south because of my bubbly personality, but that's totally false! I'm a Saginaw Valley State University alumni and currently attending Oakland University for Psychology, Leadership, and Public Administration (A LOT I KNOW). I'm also a member of Alpha Sigma Tau and Love Your Melon on campus.
I finally started my blog in December of 2018 after putting it off for years. I love to write and inspire others, but wasn't sure how to go about starting a blog. I really wish I would've started sooner! Through my blog, I share my favorite fashion finds, outfits, products, travels, and much more! I'm such an adventurer and look for any opportunity to explore. Some of my favorite brands include Lilly Pulitzer (obviously!), Bella Rose Boutique, Kate Spade, Aerie, and Athleta! I would consider my style to be preppy, but I honestly love anything that's bright colored - especially pinks and blues!
In my free time, you can find me watching FRIENDS, line-dancing, shopping, working out, or hanging out with my boyfriend and/or sorority sisters. I love getting to know new people, so let's connect! I would love to hear any blog requests, product suggestions, or other ideas you have! You can contact me at or on Instagram at @simply.ash.nicole. Please don't be shy!
