What I Wore | Stripes & Jeans (+Free Country Jacket Review)

::What I'm Wearing::
Stripe Tee Shirt -- Forever 21
Jeans -- Secondhand
Moccasin -- Payless Shoes
Silver Hoop Earrings -- JCP
Slope Softshell Jacket -- c/o Free Country
Nail Polish -- Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Breezy Blue

We had such gorgeous weather today that us kids rode our bikes to our neighborhood playground this afternoon -- that was fun! Today's outfit is very simple & low-key. I wore a simple stripe tee (sadly some holes are appearing in it), with just my most casual pair of jeans, simple hoop earrings, and moccasins for that comfy & relaxed look. At times there was a cool wind, so I threw on my new Free Country jacket (which is good at blocking wind) -- which is perfect for those cooler spring days. 

A few weeks ago, Free Country asked me to review the product of my choice, I chose the Woman's Slope Softshell Jacket thinking it would be perfect for those windy spring days. Let me share with y'all a list of my thoughts on wearing this coat in different weather conditions. 
  • The coat isn't that good at keeping you warm when it snowing & there is a strong wind.
  • It is good at keeping your skirt/dress from flying up because of the longer length.
  • It does helps block the wind from getting you too cold when sitting out at a baseball game.
  • Overall, I'd say it is best for 48 to low 60s degree weather with either: wind, rain, or just a cool sunny day.
Another thing I like about the coat, how stylish & sliming it looks when worn, as I dislike wearing bulky coats. Also, the lining is so soft -- love it!

Hey! I'm seriously considering a 15x15 or 30x30 remix challenge very soon (April 14th). Would any of you like to join in? Should I make it a blog event, or would you just like to watch me? Thoughts? Ideas? You can see my past challenges here: Summer of 2012 & Summer of 2011. This event would include a no shopping rule too, for either 15 or 30 days (depending on which challenge I went with).


  1. I think it would be so much fun to do another 15 x 15 challenge! You should definitely do it, and please make it a blog event! I had so much fun last time! That jacket that you're wearing is very cute as is the whole outfit. Great job!

  2. I think a remix sounds fun. I would definitely consider joining you.

  3. That outfit is awesome, Ashley! LOVE! It looks so comfy, yet it's so cute!

  4. I would love it if you would do a 15x15 or 30x30 as a blog event! I've never gotten to participate in one of these events, and would greatly love to do so! Blessings to you,

    P.S. I'd also love it if you would do another Doctor Who challenge! I didn't participate in the last one you did, and am greatly regretting it now!

  5. Hello Ashley, your blog inspires me so much to not only dress modest but cute and stylish! I hope you do another 15x15 or 30x30; I got so excited just looking through the posts from the last two you did! Thanks so much for your wonderful blog!
    In Christ,

  6. Love your striped top....and those moccasins!
