Happy Friday Everyone! It’s been a little while since I posted on here but today I am bringing you an outfit that I have been shamelessly repeating lately because I just love it that much! I feel like such a bad ass wearing it! I don’t know if its the camouflage jacket, the leather vest or the ripped jeans but I feel unstoppable in this look.

This is my dog Mocha, she’s a 10 year old Shih Tzu and I’m obsessed with her. My parents gave her to me when I was turning eleven because they were tired of me whining and endless projects about dogs ( yes I would research dogs and create power point presentations as to why I needed one, I guess all that hard work payed off ). She’s an old lady now and doesn’t do much but we always find time to go for walks when the weather isn’t awful and sometimes she finds the energy to play a game of fetch, but mostly we just sit on the couch together, which is perfectly fine with me because I can get some drawing done or read a good book. She’s my very best friend and I am so thankful that I have her in my life.

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!

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!
