The Must-Have Sherpa Coat

December 12, 2017













Coat: c/o SheIn (the SOFTEST, coziest coat ever! One-size fits all! Available HERE)
Leggings: DSW (here, in love with these! Under $30!)
Heels: Target (here, only $35!)

Hi lovely friends!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week! Aren't the 2 weeks before Christmas just SO crazy busy!? The countdown is ON - only 13 days away!! So...if you're still in the need for a last minute gift for someone, let me introduce you to your new BFF - the sherpa coat!

This coat is by one of my fave companies -SheIn! If you look, sherpa is literally EVERYWHERE in the form of coats (like this beauty I am wearing), pullovers, and even in blankets! If you know me you know I am ALWAYS cold, so I instantly knew I had to have this jacket - I mean who doesn't want to feel like you're wearing a blanket!?  It is SO warm, and not to mention THE coziest/softest material EVER! I dressed it up a little here with my faux leather leggings & leopard print booties but it is so versatile that I have also worn it with jeans already (and throw on your Uggs for even more cozy!). I am seriously in love. The price is even better - only $33!!! SheIn also provides free shipping. There are other colors available as well, be sure to check that out HERE

This jacket is shipped in 6-8 business days for free, or in 2-4 days for $12.90! This would make THE perfect Christmas gift for that lady in your life (bestie, sister, etc). Let me know if you have any questions about the fit of this amazing sherpa coat! 

XOXO,
Ashley

A Dressy Holiday Look

December 6, 2017





{Outfit Details}
Dress: Dillard's (here, on sale for just UNDER $30! Runs TTS) // Heels: DSW (here, $40! Every girl needs a pair of black pumps!) // Tights: c/o Berkshire (here, only $8.25 on sale!! In love with these) // Belt: Target (here) // Clutch: Purple Peridot (exact one here, love this one here and here)

Happy Wednesday beautiful readers!

The Christmas Countdown is ON, y'all!! Only 19 days left!! So, I thought it would be appropriate to post a Christmas-inspired outfit post this evening!

I picked this dress up way back in September and enjoyed wearing it out to a nice dinner on our Charleston trip (read about our trip HERE) back in October. As the seasons have changed, I thought it would make THE perfect dress for a holiday party! As I have shared on Instagram (follow me HERE), you know how much I LOVE olive green! It makes for a lovely color for a Christmas-inspired look! 

To change my look up a little bit from what I wore in Charleston and this fall, I wanted to add these beautiful tights! I always like to keep in mind ACCESSORIES for any outfit. They can seriously change a look like none other! When looking for what accessories to add to an outfit, remember patterned tights like the ones I am wearing are a great option to change up your look. The vertical stripes on these elongate your legs as well, which is another added bonus if you are short like me (I am 5'3 and 1/2 for reference haha)!!! I also added one of my fave belts and leopard print clutch to add even more to this outfit. Whenever you go out, this would be lovely with a coat over (I am thinking a faux fur leopard print one! How fun!)

I have SO enjoyed y'alls responses on my polls I have posted over on my Instastories, and will be working on those gift guides ASAP to post! I hope y'all have a great rest of your week!

XOXO

Red & Green Remix

December 3, 2017







{Outfit Details}
Dress: H&M (here, also available in black! Only $29.99) //  Moto Jacket: Old Navy (available HERE, limited sizes in this color but 2 other colors available in more sizes; also love these maroon ones here for $44.99 with code "YOUGET25" and this one here for under $40!) // OTK boots: Target (here, size up 1/2 a size! The color in person is a little more grayish brown than it appears online, just a heads up! Very versatile though!) // Leopard Print Clutch: Purple Peridot (my exact one HERE for only $32.39! Also love this one here with the cute tassel and here with the asymmetrical zipper)

Happy December, friends! Also...Happy Sunday! Who else is excited -but also can't believe - that it's finally December?! The LAST month of the year before 2018!! Unbelievable how fast time flies (I have said that literally a billion times but it seems more true with each passing day!). Anyway, I hope y'all had an amazing weekend! We officially have our place all decorated for Christmas and enjoyed our first Christmas activity (a parade in downtown Chattanooga) this weekend! 

So - who else is as obsessed with jewel tones as I am!? I just love the contrast of the deep burgundy with the dark green in my outfit above. These shades contrast yet compliment each other so well. I called this post "red + green remix" because this outfit reminded me of Christmas with the red & green shades, but it's definitely a "remix" by using the jewel tones! 

This jacket is one of my faves from Old Navy. I bought it back in September, and its stock keeps coming and going online - plus they always have sales. Keep checking back though because they do keep restocking it (right now, only available in limited sizes) - but it is available in navy!! My dress is from my fave H&M and is ONLY $30! It is seriously one of my favorites and I may need it in black too -haha! I just got these boots in the mail, and I absolutely love them! I have the heeled version in black, but the neutral shade of these is making its way as one of my new faves!!! 

XOXO

Orange Sweater Weather

November 29, 2017













 {Outfit Details}
Sweater: H&M (Identical sweater here but not in orange; love these orange options herehere. and this one is so cute here) // Jeans: H&M (here, only $9.99. Seriously y'all need these! Size up) // Booties: Target (here, in LOVE with these!) // Hat: c/o Scala (here, obsessed w/ this hat and wear it all the time!) // Belt: Target (exact not online, similar and love this one here)

Happy Wednesday friends!

I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday! I seriously can't get over how many good deals there were this year. Many of you messaged me to tell me about some of the things you purchased from my Black Friday/Cyber Monday round up which makes me SO happy!!! I also got a lot of my holiday shopping checked off my list (plus a couple of things for myself- lol) - how about y'all? Of course I do still have some shopping left to do. I will be honest, I kind of like spreading my shopping out because I find it FUN. Is that weird? But shopping to me has always been fun and so I would be kind of disappointed to get it all done early, lol. Stay tuned to Ashley's Passion for Fashion because I am going to be posting some gift guides for her, him, etc to the blog as requested by y'all on my Instastories!

So on to today's look. I found this sweater in stores the day that H&M had their grand opening here in Chattanooga. I fell in love instantly when I tried it on, and even better, it was only $19.99. Since blogging, I have found that unfortunately some of these GREAT deals I find in stores are not available online. It's very odd but the EXACT sweater I am wearing is HERE but it is NOT available in orange online, just in tan/green (which I love those colors by the way). But, I have linked almost IDENTICAL orange sweaters underneath my picture above. Orange can be a tricky color to wear but I am in LOVE with this shade of orange. Through my years as a student at UT in Knoxville and adding different shades of orange into my wardrobe, I have found that for me, a burnt orange is my favorite shade to wear! This definitely is a statement-making sweater but I love bright colors. If you're unsure, H&M is a great place to try a trend like this because it is inexpensive. I also love this sweater because of the way the sleeves fit. They are "balloon" style and tighter around my wrists but bigger in the sleeves. So comfortable because my sleeves don't fall down all day, but also stylish!

Also - these boots y'all! Some of my faves. I posted about them on my Instastory a few weeks ago, but I found them on sale at Target (of course) for under $15!!! They are currently online HERE. I just noticed they are called "Granny Block Booties" hahaha - I would be pretty impressed if my 90 year old Nana wore these though! lol.

 I hope y'all have a blessed week!!!!

XOXO
Ashley

Casual Holiday Style

November 20, 2017








{Outfit Details}
Sweater: H&M (here, on sale for $17.99 now!) // Leggings: Via Spiga (here, LOVE these faux leather leggings for only $26.95, a great deal and they are SO comfy!) // OTK boots: Target (here, $44.99, go up 1/2 a size) // Handbag: Louis Vuitton (here)

Happy Monday, dolls!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic start to the week. I have been busy prepping for a new job (YAY!) and also helping my Mom get ready for our big Thanksgiving meal on Thursday! I am SO excited that Thanksgiving is only THREE days away, and that Black Friday shopping/sales are coming up right after! Speaking of, I am working on some gift guides and also a Black Friday/Cyber Monday shopping guide as well! I love polling y'all on Instagram and appreciate all the feedback for what you're looking for in terms of shopping. Excited to share that later this week!

Ok so on to this casual holiday look. Speaking of polling on Instagram, 66% of y'all voted that you would like to see some casual holiday looks (whereas 34% voted for dressy holiday looks!). I will try to incorporate both in the next few weeks but tonight I wanted to share this look that would be ideal for a casual look on either Thanksgiving Day or for Christmas. I mean you can't go wrong with a red sweater for Christmas. One of my favorite tips for sweaters is to go up a size (I am wearing a size medium here) for a looser fit, that you can wear over leggings! I also love that this sweater fits off-the-shoulder if you go up a size!

I paired my sweater with some of my favorite faux leather leggings that are just under $27! To top of my look, I added my favorite OTK boots from Target...these are seriously the perfect designer dupes for the Stuart Weitzman pair that retail for over $700. I am eyeing the taupe pair next! You could also easily wear flat boots with this look, but I decided while it is "casual" I wanted to dress it up a tiny bit with my OTK heeled boots. This look would be perfect for a Christmas dinner at your family's house.

What is YOUR favorite holiday style!? Leave me a comment and let me know, and stay tuned for some super exciting SALES!!!!

XOXO,

Ashley
