a chat with Ascot Friday - The Oxford Trunk

a chat with Ascot Friday

by Jess von bluecher September 28, 2012


OT: How did you come up with the name Ascot Friday for your blog?


AF : I used to bring my dog to work on Fridays and to make him a bit more stylish, he would always wear an ascot, so the phrase 'ascotfriday' began.


OT: What is your go-to Fall outfit?

AF: Printed skinny denim, basic tank, layered with a chambray shirt, booties and a hat!


OT: How do you balance being a working mom and still find time to put outfits together? 

AF:  I try not to spend too much time picking out an outfit, let's be honest there isn't really much time anyways.

OT:  Any advice for other busy moms?

AF: The key to outfitting is purchasing the right clothes. If you fill your wardrobe with clothes that you love to wear and that can mix well getting dressed is fun!


OT: You normally wear very minimal make up, how did it feel to be glammed up in our shoot?


AF: It's always fun to have someone else do your make-up. Who doesn't like to be made up?!

OT:  What is your favorite go-to Oxford Trunk piece?

AF: I love the Young Guns necklace right now! It's perfect for layering!


OT: If you could have any job what would it be?

AF: I would give anything to be at home with my boys, so a job where I could work from home would be a dream!


OT: What other bloggers do you follow?

AF: I'm always on the search for new ones.. I spend a lot of time on Pinterest, it’s my go to site to discover new (to me) bloggers.

OT: Who are your style icons and why?

AF: I am a huge fan of Kate Moss and Erin Wasson, their styles are so effortless.

OT: Where do you see Ascot Friday in a year from now?

AF:  Blogging is something I do because I love it. As long as I can keep having fun with my blog, I think the possibilities are endless!

OT:  Until next time
