From Paris to Madrid

Bonjour lovelies!  Happy Friday!  I am excited to announce the WINNERS for the Majestical Jewelry Giveaway!  Congratulations Lilian and Natalie!   You each won a $10 gift certificate to Majestical Jewelry!

In today’s outfit post, I am wearing one of my absolute favorite jackets!  I scored this awesome ultra-soft military-inspired jacket with a hidden zip placket and lamb leather trim, fully lined in brushed cotton, at Marshalls this past December!  It was originally $225 jacket and I got for $50 on sale!  It is so comfy and I loved how it can be dressed up or down.  I love Paris (even though I haven’t been there yet), but I love this cute bedazzled top with the Eiffel Tower mixed with the camo green jacket.  This adorable bag, my sweet husband brought me back from his travels to Madrid, Spain – this last month.  I loved the idea of pairing to amazing places in Europe into one outfit!  Add some black jeggings and booties and viola!  Comfy and chic, ready to travel!

Au Revoir…

XO,

Rachel Ashley

Navy and Yellow


 Its starting to get really warm on the West Coast!  We’ve had beautiful weather the last several months, but tank tops and shorts will definitely be due before May!  I am trying to enjoy my blazers and jeans a little while longer.  My hubby bought me this adorable Nautical Blazer from Michael Kors for Christmas…and it seriously is one of my faves.  I love how navy is so versatile like black is.  I  pair navy with all sorts of colors.  I usually pair my navy clothes with orange, red, coral…etc. but I decided this time around to pair it with this super comfortable yellow tank from Rubbish.   I love chunky jewelry, so I definitely layered that on and I pulled out a great purse I haven’t used in a while, you can never go wrong with Furla!  Is there a color you find super versatile…like navy and black?

Stretch it Out

Download PDF

Happy Wednesday!  Today’s Workout Wednesday is all about STRETCHING…do you do it regularly?  If not, you should.  The older we get the importance of stretching increases.  We all know that stretching increases range of motion and flexibility, but why do so many of us neglect it?  Hopefully I can give you a few reasons why you should definitely be stretching and you will begin to add it to your regular fitness regime.

Benefits of Stretching include: helps lengthen muscles (you know, that long and lean ballerina body), helps decrease injury, increases blood and nutrient supply to muscles, which helps reduce muscle soreness, helps correct posture.  Stretching not only helps your physical body, but your mind too.  Stretching can calm your mind, while also helping to reduce stress and tension.

The list of benefits for stretching is long, but hopefully the few that I have included and the exercises I have suggested today, will have you on your way to including stretching in your fitness regime.  Be sure to Download your PDF Copy of Stretch it Out!

Fur, Leopard and Red

Photo shoots with the hubby are always so fun and he always seems to capture my funny moments and my personality.  This photo-op was near a very pretty Catholic Church.  Our weather right now is so beautiful!  Cold weather friends are jealous of our 70 to 80 degree days.

I love leopard, I get it from my mama (she loves leopard)!  I think there is something so feminine and sexy about leopard and red, plus I paired it with this amazing Fiorelli faux fur bag and it makes it so glam, wouldn’t you agree?!?   I love the color, texture and print combinations with this outfit.  I also am head over heels in love with my BCBG shoes!   What are some of your favorite color, print and texture combinations?  Comment below, I would love to hear them!

XO,

Rachel Ashley

Raquel and Roll

 

 

Hope you all had a great St. Patrick’s Day!  Did you all do anything fun?  I had a very busy day at work and I am excited to pick my husband up from the airport.  He has been in Spain for a week without me!  So not fair (those Soccer boys)!  I am excited for him to be home and to see all the cool pictures and videos he took though!

What do you think of my jacket and leather top?  Super cute, right?!?  I scored both from Marshall’s!  I just love that place!  I also am wearing one of my fave wedges from Sam Edleman – his shoes are ah-mazing!  I also love Seven jeans – they never do me wrong!  I was felling a little Raquel (Rachel in Spanish and my mom almost named me this) and Roll with all the leather – a little fun play on words! :)

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
