It’s almost April and I woke up to a large dusting of snow. I’m not the least bit happy about this turn of events but I’m trying to stay positive because I know that Spring is just around the corner…hopefully!


I’m Back!

Hey guys, I’m back! Did you miss me? I think you did seeing that I have received so many messages from you guys asking where I have been and if I was coming back. Long story short I felt tired and worn out and needed a break. I decided to quit my Instagram account “@denimjoy_” for personal reasons and start a new account “@rachelleashley_” where I am able to be a little more free with my photos and I feel like I can post a little bit more about myself. I am having fun again and becoming more creative, where previously I felt trap in the same cycle of postings. With the new season upon us I feel re inspired to begin posting. I will also be sharing some of my sketchbook pages, healthy tips and yummy recipes in the blog posts to come :)

Feel free to follow my new account @rachelleashley_ on Instagram to stay up to date on everything!

Much love,

I love wearing this coat for the single reason that it makes me feel like a total bada**. I mean how could you not when it has such a tough vibe to it! I styled it here with my favorite pair of Levi’s Jeans and a simple Black Knit Sweater. Completing the outfit with a basic but beautiful cross-body bag and a pair of comfortable ankle boots.

Happy Monday! I hope you are all having an amazing festive season filled with good food, good friends and lots and lots of holiday treats! I’ve been treating myself quite frequently lately ( mostly in the clothing department, I mean who can pass up those sales?! ) I picked up this amazing Wool Coat from Aritzia over the Black Friday Weekend and paired it with some of my favorite classic pieces like these Citizen of Humanity Jeans that I’ve had forever and this hand-me-down sweater from my Mom ( which is still available on the Aritzia Website HERE ). To keep up with the grey theme I added on these adorable Grey Ankle Boots with the silver detailing on the heel, which paired perfectly with my favorite little cross-body purse from Marshals! A simple outfit perfect for some holiday shopping!

I love winter! Okay maybe not the tremendous amounts of snow, crazy wind gusts and freezing temperatures, but I do love the fashion! Coats, sweaters, boots & accessories: I wait all year round to wear them! Today I am styling one of my newer coats, this beautiful khaki green army coat from Abercrombie & Fitch that I styled with these super cool Altered Skinny Jeans from Levi’s and a basic pair of Black Boots. To complete the outfit I added on a beautiful Circle Cross Body Bag, a simple Black Turtleneck and an on-trend Baker Boy Cap!

Happy Monday!

Keeping cozy this Monday morning with my new Dex Faux Fur Hooded Jacket & a pair of Light Wash Rollas Jeans ( probably not the best idea on such a snowy, slushy day, but all in the name of fashion right? Let’s just hope I don’t spill my latte all over them on my way to work ). Keeping up with the casual vibes I added on my Koio Collective sneakers and a beautiful White Turtleneck Sweater.

Happy Monday!

Good morning and happy Friday everyone! Are you ready for the weekend? I know I am!

Thanks to Camelia Roma I now have a beautiful Satchel purse that is perfect for my brunch date on Sunday morning. It can fit everything I need and the soft blush color goes perfectly with my favorite cheetah print coat. I styled it with a simple blouse featuring a heart shaped pattern, a pair of black skinny jeans and these beautiful black & white sneakers.

What do you have planned for this weekend?

As I am writing this snow is gently falling outside my window, I have a Hallmark Christmas movie playing in the background and I am drinking a Latte out of my new Starbucks Christmas Cup. Yup, I am in full holiday mood! Now all I have to do is put the Christmas tree up and buy some new pajamas and I will be all set for the big day!

Today I am wearing my favorite coat from BB Dakota, the Eldridge Jacket, with a cozy Turtleneck Sweater and my new favorite Scarf from Vero Moda. Of course I had to pair this look with my favorite Levis Jeans and clean White Adidas Superstars!

Happy Wednesday!
