The Softest Denim Ft. Velvet Heart

The Softest Denim Ft. Velvet Heart

I recently went on a trip to Knoxville with my husband to get away for a fall “mini-cation”. We did several hikes and ate at the best restaurants in town.  There is nothing like Tennessee in the fall.  The Smokies were painted with red, yellow, and orange all over.  One of my fashion musts this fall is denim and embroidered floral details.  Denim can be a good layering piece because it is not too heavy and can go with most colors and patterns.  One of my favorite outfits during my trip to Knoxville was this denim floral embroidered jacket with these high waisted skinny fit jeans from Velvet Heart.

Velvet Heart  is a modern-contemporary apparel line based in Los Angeles.  Their denim is sold in major department stores, online, and in over 750 specialty stores nationwide.  What I love about their clothes is that every piece is unique.  I tend to have a more casual style and their clothes are right up my alley.  I also liked how I couldn’t find their clothes in another store.  Every piece is intentional.

Can I just pause everything and tell you how these jeans fit like a glove?? When I put them on for the first time it was like I was meant to wear these jeans.  I love how they give enough stretch to hug all the right parts on your booty and legs.  My favorite part of these jeans is the button up front.  I don’t have to worry about zippers and for some reason the buttons prevent the jeans from scrunching in the front.  Because these jeans have a stretch to them, I am wearing a size 26.  I normally wear a size 27.

I have much worn oversized anything this fall: jeans, sweatshirts, sleeves, and jackets.  This black floral embroidered denim jacket from Velvet Heart has been the perfect oversized addition to my collection! I love how I can wear sweaters underneath it for the colder months to come.  One of my favorite things to do with oversized pieces is to roll up the sleeves.  I normally wear a size small in jacket, but since I wanted the oversized look I am wearing a size medium for reference.

The last item I need to talk about are these wine colored velvet heels.  I have been crushing on velvet all season and this is the second velvet shoe I have purchase in the last month or so.   I LOVE LOVE LOVE the fall vibes they give.  They come with a pointed toe which is super flattering and makes your legs look longer.  They run true to size. If you are looking for another great velvet shoe that is a flat check out this blush velvet flat.

The “Always Late” Sweatshirt ft. Rachel Rene Designs

The “Always Late” Sweatshirt ft. Rachel Rene Designs

Every fall I always have to get three things:  honey crisp apples the size of my head, caramel to dip those apples in,  and pumpkins of course! Last week I finally made it out to the pumpkin patch with my dearest friend and her little girl.  What I love about going to the pumpkin patch is the “hunt” for the perfect pumpkin. For those of you who don’t know me,  I can get easily distracted by coffee shops, photo spots, thrift stores, and markets along side the road which often makes me late, therefore,  I chose to stick with this cozy soft olive green “Always Late” sweatshirt from Rachel Renee Designs

“Always Late Sweatshirt” c/o //  Ripped Stretchy Denim Jeans

Can I just please say how soft and cozy this “Always Late” sweatshirt is?   I love how it is a lighter material so I can layer it with a vest or another jacket.  Sometimes wearing a heavy sweatshirt can be too much.  Rachel Rene Designs is an Etsy shop that has the cutest and most creative customizable apparel for every age and demographic.   I recently wore a “hoosier tee” from her shop about a month ago.  Because Rachel is so sweet and amazing, she is letting me give you 10% your entire order with code; ASHLEY10 in her Etsy shop!

Olive Green Duster Jacket

Olive Green Duster Jacket

I have had a major obsession with jackets this past month and I don’t think it is going to get any better coming into the fall season.  The olive green duster I am wearing above is a steal from one of my favorite online stores,  I had to size up to a 6.  I like how it is a lighter material so I can layer it with another jacket as the temperature gets colder.  They have plenty more duster options HERE. All of their items right now are 50% off and most items with the discount are under $30.   Continue reading “Olive Green Duster Jacket”

The Perfect Leather Jacket

The Perfect Leather Jacket

A few posts back I mentioned how I bought three jackets while on my trip in Chicago.  This leather jacket is one of the three that I purchased! I am O B S E S S E D with the fit of this jacket.  It is an “oversized ” jacket which is the best to wear over chunky sweaters in the fall.  This jacket was purchased in the BOGO free sale at Topshop . It was definitely a steal, but what is more of a steal are the jackets I linked below that are all 50% off the price listed from Boohoo.  SEVERAL OF THESE LEATHER JACKETS ARE UNDER $50 PEOPLE with CODE: GIMME50!!!  You can’t pass up this deal!!!

Hoosier Tee ft. RachelRene Designs


I mean, how adorable is this tee from RachelReneDesigns?  The fabric is SO SOFT and it fits so comfortably. One of my biggest weaknesses is customizable items. I came across the cutest shop on Etsy who makes customizable clothing, RachelReneDesigns .  What I have found in most apparel shops that do customizing, is that the quality is sacrificed  – but not at this shop.  Most of you didn’t know that I am a born and raised hoosier.  If you don’t know what a hoosier is, look it up HERE.  Haha.  I am so excited for my hoosier tee and you can get your own customized tee too by clicking HERE.

Weekender Tote


I feel like what makes traveling more exciting is when you have cute travel bags to bring with you.  I mean sitting in the car or the airport are not the most desired things to do, but when you have a cute weekender bag or piece of luggage – that all seems to go away.  

I am off to the music city of Nashville this weekend and I couldn’t leave without bringing this bag I recently received from Karlie Clothes.  This online store and wholesaler has the cutest clothes, accessories, jewelry, and of course – bags.  I love the history of this family-owned company and their foundation that they live on.  I am ALL about the details of this Tuscan Weekender bag I am carrying. (Which is currently on sale!!)  It is the perfect size because it is not too big or not too small.  I finally have a bag for weekend trips that can fit my size 10 shoes in. They have plenty of other totes and weekender bag options too.  Click HERE to see more of their bag options. Continue reading “Weekender Tote”

White Band Jacket



I kinda went jacket crazy when I made a trip to Chicago a few weekends ago and bought three jackets.  I love jackets because they can really be worn 3 out of the 4 seasons of the year and they are great layering / statement pieces.
One of the jacket purchases I made in Chicago was this band jacket from White House Black Market. I was super excited because this jacket is UNDER $50! I love the gold buttons on the sleeves and the front.  It also hugs my body perfectly.  One of my biggest struggles with jackets is that they are either too short or too boxy.   The jacket I am wearing is a size 2.
These jeans are one of my favorite high wasted skinny jeans I have ever bought.  They are only $16 at Boohoo with the code YAY50!  The jeans are true to size, if anything order a size up just to be safe! They are a stretch material so they have some give to them. Continue reading “White Band Jacket”

The Perfect Off the Shoulder Sweater


Who else is ready for fall?  Some of my favorite things to do in the fall are salvage shopping, getting hot drink from local coffee shops, having bi-weekly bonfires, and going to all of the festivals!
If you haven’t checked out my latest posts, I have been crushing over the mustard yellow color lately.  I may have a problem! I recently purchased this off the shoulder sweater from Dottie Couture Boutique.  I am wearing a size small.  Dottie is always have sales and promotions going on.  One of my favorite days to shop are on Tuesdays when all of their sale items are marked down.   These cutout high wasted jeans are also my latest obsession from Boohoo.  They are so comfy and I love the cutout detail.  I am wearing a size 4.  This pair runs true to size.  If anything, order a size down.
