Sunday Excursions

posted on: Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Whoa, sometimes it feels like I blink my eyes and weeks have disappeared! I meant to get this post out sooner, but somehow life always seems to get so busy and takes me away from blogging. 

A couple weekends ago my cousin and I decided to check out Market Collective. I love finding unique locally made art, jewellery, clothes and so on at Market Collective. Last time I bought a couple photographs by Amy Victoria Wakefield, this time i bought a sweat shirt by CAMP clothing. I have literally been living in it since! The first thing I do when I'm home now is put on my CAMP sweat shirt. 

So, I'm completely obsessed with the Hunger Games right now! I wanted to wait to read the books until after I saw the movie, but JP and I weren't proactive enough to buy tickets to the movie, so I broke down and started reading on the weekend. I'm halfway through the second book! Sooooo good! Has anyone else read the books or seen the movie? What did you think?

  1. This whole dress with the boots thing? I'm a fan!

  2. Gorgeous shots!! I love this backdrop, it's perfect with this look, the denim jacket is fantastic with this dress.
    I know the feeling, apparently my term is done in two weeks, two weeks, and a 12 page research paper which I haven't even started researching urgh :S

  3. Really cute outfit! Love that you paired the leather jacket over the chambray top. And YES love the Hunger Games!! Loved both the books and the movie :)

    P.S. I'm having a giveaway over on my blog!

  5. I get so excited when I see posts from you on my bloglovin feed! ;) Love the layering!

    I finished all three of the books in a week, I was totally blown away with how amazing they are. I expected them to be kind of pre-teenish but they were soooo good. I can't wait to see the movie!

  6. Pretty photos! I love that denim button up with the dress.

  7. Loving that dress and all the layers - so cute! And I am halfway through book 3 of Hunger Games - SO SO SO obsessed :)

  8. Love love love! Your bag pops ! Great photos too, as always.. the background works so well! Xx


  9. Your photography is so beautiful Ashley, seriously! I love the combination of feminine and masculine elements in your look- who knew that dress was meant to be paired with chambray? I wouldn't have guessed it, but it's a perfect match!

  10. the books are addicting!!! i read the first book in only a day! so perfect!
    can't wait to hear your thoughts on the movie. loved it!
    p.s. love your style!

  11. Love that you are enjoying the books! I have read them all and liked them, although I felt that the second wasn't quite as good as the first, and the third was just okay. I sorta felt like she got tired of writing or just really wanted to make it a trilogy and just smushed in a lot of random tying up of loose ends in the last few pages, which was a bit disappointing, for me.

    I was dubious about the movie, as much as I wanted to see it, hoping that they wouldn't make too many changes. I went, and although of course they did make some changes there weren't really any that I minded, and Jennifer Lawrence was excellent!

    (Whoa, long rambly comment, but my excuse is that when you get a librarian talking about books it's a slippery slope! ha)
