Nice to Meet You!
I’m Ashley and I’m the girly behind Sweet Home Ashley. I started this passion project in the early months of 2020 when, like so many of us, I was spending more time on the gram than usual. At that time I followed a lot of style bloggers and thought – “why not me”? I’ve always loved sharing a great sale or fun style tips with my friends – so why not broaden that audience to, well, everyone!? I did have a moment of hesitation before moving forward because none of those bloggers looked like me (short and curvy – even my dark hair and olive skin was different!), but that quickly made me realize that my differences were exactly why I would and could show up in this space!
My entire purpose with this blog is to empower and encourage women of all shapes, sizes, ages, and phases of life to wear what they love.
Just because you may not meet society’s standard of “the perfect body” does not mean you can’t rock an amazing outfit and feel awesome doing it! I’m here to show you all of the recipes for styling your unique shape while also keeping your wardrobe up-to-date with current trends. As always, any style tip I share is purely for inspiration, but at the end of the day you should always wear what you love and what makes you feel confident and beautiful.
Occasionally, you’ll also find some posts on home decor, beauty, or even travel because I am a self-proclaimed “over-sharer” and just love a little bit of everything. But for the most part this space will focus on style, body confidence, and self love.
Everything I post is created with one of three things in mind: is it helpful? is it entertaining? is it encouraging? So, I hope you always find what you came here for and if not I’d love to hear from you! I’m always happy to take content requests because after all this space is FOR YOU.
Apart from the blog, I am a full-time marketer and work a traditional 9-5! I live with my husband, Andrew, and golden retriever fur babe, Ruthie, in Cincinnati, Ohio. We live in a 100 year old home that I love to entertain in and decorate! My husband works for a large airline so we are blessed to be able to travel all over the world quite often because of his job. I love to take you along on those journeys when they pop up!
I’m an only child and extremely close with my family and friends. I’m a horrible cook, an avid Taylor Swift fan, not too shabby at DIY, and obsessed with Christmas time. I also LOVE a good spicy margarita or glass of wine alongside some delicious Indian or Mexican food! And something I’m extremely proud of is that I’m half Italian – hence the dark hair and olive skin as previously mentioned. I love fiercely, with all of my heart, and 99% of the time am an extremely bubbly lady with a sunny side up view of life!
Just a heads up, I do use affiliate links throughout these website pages and make a small commission each time you make a purchase using one of my links (at no additional cost to you). This is how Sweet Home Ashley operates and I am beyond grateful for your support in this way. As always, all opinions are my own unless otherwise noted! Come say hi on Instagram or TikTok @sweethomeashley, I’d love to “meet” you!
