welcome to my blog

So where did the name My Kind of Casual come from? Well, anytime I was going somewhere whether it be the grocery store or out on the town, my friends or sisters would always ask, “What are you going to wear?” My go-to response would be, ”something casual." Then they would always respond, "Normal people casual or Ashley Casual…" Cue the name MYKINDOFCASUAL.




It all started with a love for fashion and always being called out for being overdressed for every occassion! I decided to start an instagram sharing my favorite finds and outfits I put together daily. I seriously can not believe what started as a fun idea has grown into an amazing community of women who share the same passion and excitement for looking good and feeling good! This idea quickly turned into a life full of fashion, lifestyle, beauty and travel!

A little more about me! I am 33 years old, born and raised in Palm Beach Gardens. I have a tiny sassy pup named Lola that makes special appearances on my page and I have a super tight knit family and we all live in the area! I work as an event planner and I am blessed to work alongside my dad and sister for our nonprofit Student ACES. I started my instagram page as a fun hobby but it has turned into a full time job and I LOVE what I do! I feel extremely lucky to wake up and share my love for fashion and styling with you every single day.

My Instagram @mykindofcasual will still be a place where I share my outfits of the day and all the fun things! I decided to create my website to be able to share even more with all of YOU! Stay tuned for weekly favs, beauty reviews, sales, skincare routines, LOTS of travel and so much more!

Thank you for being here and being apart of my dream of creating a community of strong women come true!

Shoes can make any outfit stand out!

I have rounded up a few of my favorite sandals, sneakers and heels

that every closet should have for summer!



Marc Fisher Lace up Sandal

I love the pop of color the pink or lime add to any outfit.

I LIVE in my lace up sandals all year long.

Add these to your outfit to really stand out and make a statement!

Tkees Sandals


Ok, these are by far the most simple, easiest but still so chic summer sandal!

(year round Floridian flats)

These can be worn to the beach, running errands or out and about.

I love that they blend in with your skin tone and literally go with anything and everything.

The Steve Madden Sandals that are blowing up instagram!

The Travel Sandals from Steve Madden have definitely made a statement on social media and let me tell you they are worth the buzz.

I have the clear travel sandals and they are so comfortable and really add an

edgy fun vibe to any outfit.

Splurge Worthy and GORGEOUS


Love the bow details and beautiful patterns on all of these sandals.

I linked a few in similar but different styles.

I know these are a splurge but if you are looking for

girly statement summer shoes these are it!

Everyday Sneaks


I have been so into sneakers lately!

I find myself wearing them all the time.

Obsessed with the way they look paired with a girly dress or skirt.

Here are a few price options and looks I am really liking for everyday wear!

White sneaks I have been wearing on repeat.

If you have been following me since the beginning or even just a few days, one thing that's clear is, I LOVE my denim shorts! We all know that feeling when trying on a million pairs of shorts that don't fit, but how about when you finally put on a pair and they fit so right?…best feeling ever! I have been guilty of wearing mine on repeat all year long.

No shame in my denim game!


I decided to share three of my favorite pairs at different price points


Major Steal

Wild Fable for Target has a high rise distressed pair of jean shorts right now and they are perfection! I now own these in every single wash! Fit runs a little big so if you are in between sizes I would size down. If you are looking for a good quality pair of denim shorts on a major budget costing you about $15 these shorts are for you!

Middle Price Point

I raved about this style last season and I am raving about them again.

These Abercrombie high waisted shorts fit just right.

The rigid denim texture is amazing and they stay put (high waisted) without riding up or bothering you during the day. Keep an eye out for these in every wash!

I own two sizes in the medium wash I wanted one to fit just right and another oversized. If you are looking for the oversized feel size up one as these run smaller or true to size.

Splurge

Agolde kills it in the denim department.

Their Parker denim shorts have been getting all the good reviews since they first came out. Sizing runs on the bigger size, so definitely size down when purchasing!

These shorts mold to your body and they are so comfortable! If you are like me and wear denim shorts all the time these are definitely worth the price! My favorite wash is Swapmeet but you really can’t go wrong with any of their washes!
