Hello fabulous readers!

Today is officially FRIDAY! And, what better way to celebrate the official kickoff to the weekend than with a giveaway!? Keep on reading for more info on how to enter! 

I have always been a lover of jewelry, and especially jewelry that makes a statement! Beautiful jewels can instantly take an outfit from average to fabulous in seconds by just adding a wow factor necklace, bracelet, or pair of earrings. So you can imagine my excitement when I was introduced to the gorgeous jewelry line Chloe + Isabel. This line is seriously on point with current trends and has something for everyone, at a wide range of price points.  Each piece is designed in NYC (say hellooooo to the fabulous Big Apple!). Moreover, every piece has a Lifetime Replacement Guarantee: the perfect solution if you're hard on your jewelry! And what makes this line even better is that it is nickel free, hypoallergenic, and lead safe...if you have sensitive skin (the future NP in me loves this!). Not only that, but it comes in THE cutest packaging....example A: 




Seriously how cute is this packaging!? I love the little inspirational messages! So the bracelets (here and here) & necklace (here) I'm wearing in the pictures above are from the new Chloe + Isabel spring line and a part of the Jolie collection. I knew when I first saw these pieces that they were THE perfect accessory for any spring #ootd. I LOVE the blush pink color; it's so feminine, delicate & goes with literally so many things. My favorite way to wear statement jewelry is with a casual outfit because I really think it takes it up a notch! Of course this jewelry would also pair well for a dressier occasion.

For my #ootd above, I decided to go more on the casual side. One of my favorite colors to wear this spring are blue & white stripes. You will see them everywhere, and I just love how girly they are. My dress I'm wearing above was literally only $12 at Ross & I love it!!! It's so comfy and light weight so it will be perfect when the weather gets even warmer (and for our honeymoon!!!). I wish I could find the exact dress online to link for y'all, but I've linked some super cute affordable ones above. Another big trend this Spring? Off-the-shoulder tops/dresses/swimsuits, etc!! So, what better way to show off your statement Chloe + Isabel necklace than with an off-the-shoulder dress?!

The bracelets are perfect addition to your arm party! Like literally, they are perfect for layering. Annnnnd can we talk about the tassels on the bracelet?! As y'all probably have noticed, tassels are totally on trend for the spring. I love adding little touches of a trend in a subtle way such as with a bracelet! 😉

Are you ready for a chance to win the perfect addition to your arm party!? Along with the awesome assistance of Danielle McClary of Chloe + Isabel, we bring to you the....

A Dressy Spring Look!

March 20, 2017


















{Outfit Details}
Dress: H&M (old, obsessed with this one here) // Coat: c/o Tobi (here) // Heels: Old Navy (similar here) // Clutch: TJ Maxx (old, love this one here


Hellooooo gorgeous!

Thanks so much for stopping by ;) Life has been a whirlwind lately but I wouldn't change a single minute. Our wedding is right around the corner & that means that wedding planning has been kicked into overdrive the past few weeks! So far this month we have had a wedding shower, went on our bachelorette & bachelor parties, met with the wedding planner, & I had my final gown fitting. Coming up this week are my hair & makeup trial runs. When things slow down, I'm definitely going to put a post together about the BEAUTIFUL wedding shower my bridesmaids hosted for us, and also about my most magical bachelorette party in Disney World!!! Stay tuned for those posts! 

But today, I wanted to bring you this dressy look for Spring. Even though the temps dropped again last week (nothing like stepping off of the plane to 40 degree weather when it was 80 degrees in Disney World, haha!), it started to warm back up this weekend, so I thought it was the perfect day to put together this little spring #ootd. 

To me, nothing says spring & warm weather like lace. Lace is one of my favorite fabrics because it is soft, feminine, and just plain pretty! The lace dress I'm wearing above is one of my faves from H&M. In my opinion, you can never have too many little black dresses, and every girl needs a lace one in their life! I actually loved this dress so much I also bought it in white. Unfortunately it is no longer online, but I found a SUPER cute similar one in the link above.

Finally, let's talk about this coat!!! I mean seriously could a coat get any cuter!? I absolutely love the draping and the wrap-around collar. It would be easy to dress this coat up or down, all around town (They totally named this coat appropriately, am I right?!). I chose to pair it with my lace LBD because I've always loved the color combination of black with taupe. Not to mention, it is currently on sale for only $34! Need I say more!? Be sure to check out Tobi's website HERE for super trendy, affordable clothing. 

Be sure to stay tuned this week for an amazing giveaway coming up :)

Thanks SO much for reading dolls & have a Happy Monday!

The Little White Dress for the Bride-to-Be + a $1,000 Target Giveaway!

March 1, 2017

Happy March, dolls!!!

I'm SO excited it's finally MARCH because it's one month closer to our wedding month! Ahhh! Cue a million heart-eye emojis + butterflies! 😍

This weekend I have my first bridal shower hosted by my seriously amazing bridesmaids. Words can't express how wonderful they all are  & how much they mean to me! I can't wait for the shower they've worked so hard to plan! So, in honor of my first bridal shower, I wanted to put together some outfit inspo for that "Little White Dress" that every bride needs in her closet! Whether for a bridal shower, engagement party or pictures, rehearsal dinner, or bachelorette party, a bride can never have too many little white dresses...am I right?! Even if you're not a bride-to-be, the LWD is perfect for the spring & summer months as well!


Little White Dress Bride to Be

One Seriously this is one of my favorite LWD EVER. You can't go wrong with a lace white dress--how bridal is that!? I need to buy this one ASAP! // Two I wore this dress for our engagement photos (see them here). It is so comfortable and is a loose fit. Not to mention the back is SO cute! // Three I absolutely LOVE Lilly dresses! This one is so chic. I bought a similar one by Lilly that I'm going to most likely wear for my bridal shower this weekend! // Four I love the cap-sleeves and sheer top of this LWD. And the scalloped hem is so girly! // Five I tried to buy this Goodnight Macaroon dress not long ago, but it's been sold out for a while now. Hoping it comes back in stock soon! It's perfectly feminine and bridal...& again, don't get me started on how much I love lace! lol 


Now, on to another exciting announcement....

This week I am teaming up with an amazing group of ladies to bring you an INCREDIBLE giveaway. One lucky reader will win a $1,000 gift card to Target.


I appreciate each and every one of you for all your support & love on my blog! Thank you for following along!

Spring Forward In Style with JORD Wood Watches (& a Giveaway)!

February 27, 2017

Keep reading for your chance to win a JORD wood watch!
















 {Outfit Details} 
Watch: c/o JORD Wood Watches (here) // T-Shirt: BP (here) // Jeans: Old Navy (here) // Duster: BP (here) // Handbag: Louis Vuitton (here) // Lace-up Flats: Old Navy (here, in Olive. I have these in 4 colors & am obsessed!) // Sunglasses: Feisedy (via Amazon here) // Earrings: SUGARFIX by Bauble Bar (here)


 Hi dolls!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Ours was busy with wedding planning (including one of my final bridal gown fittings! ekkkkk! cue the butterflies!) and some fun family activities! We were also happy to have a date night, which consisted of our faves: dinner & watching a movie (The Cowboy Way...it's an old one but SO funny- I highly recommend!).

So, who else is ready for spring!? It has been unseasonably warm in Tennessee, but I'm not complaining because I'm able to wear some of my cute new wardrobe additions & not freeze! With March 1st being just a couple of days away, it's almost time to spring forward! What better way to celebrate the time change than with a gorgeous new watch!? Read on for how you can win a beautiful watch for yourself! 😀

THE must-have accessory for springing forward is a new watch, am I right?! Let me tell ya, my new JORD wood watch totally fits the criteria for a cute, fashionable, and high-quality watch that is super versatile. (I'm wearing the Zebrawood and Champagne watch in the pictures above). What makes their watches even cooler is that JORD Wood Watches are crafted from various woods around the world. My watch in particular is "zebrawood" which is from West Africa. JORD uses whole wood stock to craft these gorgeous watches, and it definitely shows in the quality. Another selling point of this watch for me was the 35 mm watch face. I have rather small wrists, and this size was absolutely PERFECT. Also---for an extra $10, the company will size the watch for you so when it arrives at your doorstep it's ready to wear. The website has a wrist sizer that you print and use to measure your wrist. It's super easy and incredibly accurate! Also, did I mention that shipping is FREE worldwide?! Score!!!! They have SO many women's watches and men's watches to choose!

My watch arrived in a GORGEOUS wooden box which would definitely make the perfect gift for your girlfriend OR boyfriend (yes they have men's watches too!). Or, why not buy....or better yet....WIN.... one for yourself?!

I'm excited to announce that I've partnered with JORD Wood Watches to bring you a GIVEAWAY!!!! One lucky winner will win a $180 e-gift store credit so you can have a beautiful watch for yourself! The gift card will expire on 6/30/17.

All you have to do to enter for a chance to win a $180 e-gift store credit is click HERE and provide your name, e-mail, and tell your favorite watch. Then, click "submit entry" to enter! The giveaway is now open & will run through 3/19/17 at 11:59 pm EST.


And, one more surprise for my fabulous readers! Use the code "cfjord15" for 15% off any order 😘

Be sure to enter this giveaway by March 19, 2017! You don't want to miss out on the chance to win a beautiful watch so you can spring forward in style!!! I will also include the link of my giveaway on my Instagram page so tag your friends so they can enter too!

Thank you so much for all your support, dolls! Have a fabulous day, and good luck!

{Outfit details}
Bodysuit: F21 (exact not online, very similar here)
Jacket: Free People (bought last year, love this here)
Skirt: Chelsea & Violet (not online, similar here)
Heels: Sam Edelman (here)
Necklace: Local Boutique (but this one here by BP is super similar & part of the Nordstrom Winter Sale so major steal!)

Hi dolls!

I seriously can't believe how fast time is literally flying by (which is fine by me because that means our wedding day is even closer...😍  swoon...). Between school, clinicals, wedding planning, spending time with family, & working on some blogging projects coming soon, life has been busy, but I feel so blessed 💕 

The look I'm sharing with you today is one of my favorites for a date night, or a night out with friends! There is just something about fringe that is so sassy and fun, which translates into being perfect for the weekend, am I right!? This is a skirt I bought a couple of years ago at Dillard's and is by the CUTEST brand called Chelsea & Violet. I actually purchased it for a Kip Moore concert with my friends and it's been the perfect staple piece in my wardrobe ever since (not to mention it's great to wear while rocking out to some country music, one of my favorite past times, lol 😂). It's definitely a fabulous transition piece from winter into spring as you can pair it with a sleeveless top & throw on a leather jacket, as I did here! For an edgy look, it would be SO cute paired with Converse sneakers or OTK boots! 

I decided to go for a monochromatic look for my OOTN, but added color with my pop of turquoise in my necklace, red lips, and of course, the ever so timeless leopard print. I absolutely love these Sam Edelman pumps I scored at TJ Maxx & I find myself pairing them with so many things (see another way I have styled them here). Leopard print heels are another closet staple for me! Not to mention, I think they really added to the "fun" vibe of this outfit. Fringe + leopard print = a winning combination in my book! And that, ladies & gents, is my kind of mathematical equation...haha! 

I hope y'all have a fabulous week. Thank you SO much for reading; I appreciate each & every one of you! Be on the lookout for some fun projects coming soon to APFF!

XOXO
Ashley
