All Things Ashley

Bay State Blonde is where you can find fashion, beauty, and travel inspiration that stems from a firm belief that everyday is lived best with a smile on your face – and maybe a little sand in your hair.  I hope to share share sprinkles of sunlight and pops of color to brighten each and every day!

My Story

I was determined to pick out my own outfits before I even turned two. And while, style-wise, I have come a long way from trying to incorporate the entire color wheel and two or three different patterns into one ensemble, my love of style has never faded. Neither has my love of adventure or photography.

The name Bay State Blonde came about because it reflects both who I am and where I come from. So much of me has been shaped by my home state of Massachusetts. While I love to travel the world and explore, nothing feels more like home to me than the salty air of the coast or the bright hues of the leaves in fall. After returning home from school for the summer, I fell even more in love with my beautiful Bay State and it sparked a desire in me to explore more of what I so often overlook.

I never dreamt of having an outlet to share all the things in my life that I am passionate about until I started some reading blogs I stumbled upon. Seeing all the beautiful photos and reading each post brought such a smile to my face, and I instantly knew I wanted to be able to share that feeling with others as well. I am so excited to begin this journey and I hope you all enjoy it catching glimpses of my life through the lens of my Nikon.
