Welcome to A Blonde & A Briefcase!


Welcome to my new blog, A Blonde & A Briefcase! My name is Ashley, and I’m also the woman behind Purple & Pearls. This new blog fits me better, and my new stage of life.

Welcome to A Blonde & A Briefcase

This past fall I had my final semester of college, a semester earlier than all of my friends. When one of my sisters told me she was happy she could see me go through it first, I thought why not write it down?

On this new blog, you’re going to find advice on a lot of topics. You’ll get advice on money, the workplace, fashion, apartments, and etiquette. It won’t just be from me, but you know that it will be coming from someone who’s going through it now.


Career Category

Tips on what to bring your first day, how to do office tasks, job hunting and much more!

Wellness Category

Work outs, healthy habits and motivation just to name a few.

Wedding Category

Follow along as I attempt to plan my wedding to my best friend, Matt! #BeineEverAfter

Lifestyle Category

Etiquette, money tips and more adult-like habits!

Food Category

My favorite recipes, ones that I’ve tested on my family and friends so you don’t have to!

Travel Category

Weekend guides, travel tips and how to afford to travel.


Everything isn’t going to be perfect, but I won’t give you advice I haven’t or wouldn’t try myself.

Make sure to follow along on Bloglovin, Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter & Instagram!

Let me know in the comments below what you’re most looking forward too!

I am so excited to go on this adventure with you!

    XO, SS || Seersucker Sass

  • Congratulations on this new chapter in your life, I can’t wait to see what is to come!

  • Congratulations on your decision to rebrand. I know it can be such a tough decision as I decided to rebrand my name after college as well (although I still post a lot of college topics.) Rebranding gave me so much freedom and the ability to refocus what I wanted out of my blog. It also made blogging feel like less of a chore and more like a passion which I loved. Wishing you many years of success under your new name!

  • Congrats on rebranding! That takes a lot of effort!
