This winter, I’ve been all about comfort. Between the fluctuating weather conditions and this month’s never-ending to-do list, I can’t be bothered to wear anything that isn’t cozy, soft, and warm. Unfortunately, my closet is overflowing with warm-weather clothing, but it’s lacking in the fall and winter clothing category. Instead of rocking yoga pants and a hoodie everyday, I made the decision to invest in a few key pieces to last me through the season. Today I’m sharing some of my favorite winter finds, and believe it or not, every single item in this look (except for my boots) is under $30!
This casual winter outfit has been my uniform this month because it’s cute and extraordinarily comfortable. These high-waisted grey jeggings are definitely the most comfortable pants I own, and the ankle-length cut makes them perfect for tucking into boots. Combined with this cozy off-the-shoulder sweater, I feel like I’m walking down the street in my pajamas. While the main pieces of this outfit have definitely been well-worn throughout the season, the accessories in this look are the true all-stars of winter. I have worn my tassel handbag, moto booties, and rose gold aviator sunglasses into the ground because they literally make any outfit look cuter. I’ve paired this combo with jeans and sweaters, dresses, skirts, and even leggings.
Every single outfit looks better with this accessory combo, but if you could only pick one item to invest in, buy the sunglasses. You’ve seen me wear my Foster Grant Prelude Rose POL Sunglasses over and over throughout the past month (see them styled here and here), and I honestly think that everyone needs a pair. In addition to ridiculously cute, ultra-light, and extremely versatile, they’re also a bargain. These rose gold sunglasses are under $25, but you can get an extra 15% off your purchase with the promo code ASHLEY through 12/31/16 (one time use only). They make fabulous Christmas presents, but they’re also a nice reward for yourself! P.S. You can get a little shopping inspiration by seeing my other favorite Foster Grant sunglasses styled here and here.
After wearing all of my Foster Grant sunglasses throughout the past two months, I couldn’t wait to visit their new store in Orlando. The grand opening of the Foster Grant store at The Florida Mall was everything I hoped for and more. First of all, I was in fashion heaven. Every wall of the store is lined with gorgeous sunglasses, and most of the styles are under $25! As if the endless amount of sunglasses design wasn’t enough, I got the chance to meet the one and only Kat Graham from The Vampire Diaries!

In addition to being an actress and singer, Kat Graham is also a brand ambassador for Foster Grant. After speaking with her at the event, I can safely say that Kat and Foster Grant are the perfect fit. While Kat is stunning and stylish, she’s also extremely cool and down-to-earth. It was such a treat to have a one-on-one chat with her, and I am an even bigger fan after our conversation. She was so kind to me and everyone at the event, and I cannot wait to keep up with her work in 2017. You can catch Kat on The Vampire Diaries or listen to her latest song here.
If you’re in the Orlando area, I’d definitely recommend taking a trip to The Florida Mall to visit the new Foster Grant store. Whether you’re shopping in store or online, be sure to use the promo code ASHLEY to get 15% of your entire purchase through 12/31/16 (one time use only). While I love all of their sunglasses, I’d highly recommend checking out the Prelude Rose POL (see them styled in my holiday party outfit post), Gold Coast I (see them styled in a preppy fall outfit), and PF 41 sunglasses (see them styled in a casual holiday outfit). They’re all extremely cute and under $25!
