How to Style a Skirt Extender: Navy & Floral Summer Dress Featuring I Shop Simply + GIVEAWAY!

Too short?  Too tight?  Too sheer?

Trust me ladies, being a modest girl in this era is difficult with all the revealing cutouts, mini length skirts, and crop tops galore surround our malls and stores nationwide.

But there is hope lovelies!! (this is starting to sound like a sermon) 😉

Two words that will change your shopping experience forever……

SKIRT EXTENDERS!

img_4102

I have talked about skirt extenders in the past before, and they truly are so versatile in not only just adding length to skirts and dresses, but for anything too tight and sheer!

PLUS, they add a feminine frill at the hem!

Summer calls for anything floral, and the “Katie ” dress from I Shop Simply is made out of  a breathable fabric that will cool you off this summer season! Plus it’s a steal at only $24.99! I can totally see the navy color transitioning well into the fall season simply by adding a trench coat/cardigan!

I decided to add my Peek A Boo Chic skirt extender to add a shabby chic crochet hem at the bottom of the dress! So cute right?!

Just a heads up the fit on this dress runs small so order a size up! I am wearing a size Medium 😉 I love that it has short sleeves and the fact that is has slight stretch!

Modest, cute and comfy? Sign me up!

I love I Shop Simply because of the fact that they carry the trendy boutique items without the big boutique prices!

How gorgeous are these nude/cognac lace up heels from Just Fab?! They literally go with anything and are a summer essential shoe! Not to mention that they are SO easy to walk in!

Blush, Floral, Pink & Pleats Featuring Shop Sevan + GIVEAWAY!

Happiest of Tuesdays Lovelies!! Happy 2nd Day of Summer!

To celebrate summer I thought I would recreate a modest boho inspired look.

img_0811

Lace, pink, pleats and a stunning  floral crown from MauLoa Floral Designs  to complete my modest bohemian outfit!

I absolutely love this custom made floral crown from MauLoa Floral Designs!  I gave her my vision on what I wanted it to look like and she totally created it my dream floral crown!

img_0784

I scored this dainty lace top from Ross about a week ago for just $15!  I checked my local Ross again, and they got another shipment in of theses boho inspired baby doll tops also in the color blush pink! (Totally on my wanted list!)

Ross is just a super fun store in which all my expectations are exceeded every single time!

Seriously, Ross does clearance aisles the best!

Shop Sevan is a new local boutique I am completely obsessed it! The boutique is run by the cutest couple Evan and Sara Johnson hence the cute name “Sevan”! (Get it? Sarah+Evan=SEVAN)

img_4013

I am enamored with this chiffon, pleated maxi skirt because, it is completely modest and fully lined! I love when skirts do not require an additional layering slip ESPECIALLY in the summer heat! Thanks Shop Sevan!!

Okay, these chunky, cognac, lace up heels from Just Fab are simply divine! The size of the heel make them uber comfortable to walk and trot all day in them without the pain!

img_0786

You know what time it is! ACCESSORY TIME! 

For the longest time I have been longing for a fold over leopard clutch and I finally found one from Taralynn’s Boutique!! It is the “purrfect” clutch that surprisingly holds all of my odds and ends! Think of it as a condensed Mary Poppins bag 😉

Funny “ModestlyHot Mishap”  (as my brother tends to call my blogger behind the scenes happenings) as me and Mildred (my friend and also photographer) were driving to our photoshoot location, I receive an email from Esprit Raw Flowers, a local Utah floral shop who provided the flower arrangements for this photoshoot! I was more than thrilled to be have such GORGEOUS fresh, cut flowers part of this shoot! A big THANK YOU to Esprit Raw Flowers!

You can find more ModestlyHot snapshots on my snapchat @Modestly.Hot 😉

Take a peek at my daily life as a modest fashion blogger.

P.S. did y’all notice the new wispy bangs? lol I have yet to get used to having hair near my face at all times, but I really like the way they frame my face.

I hope you all have a great Tuesday and I will be talking to you in my next blog post!

ALSO I will be hosting a giveaway with Shop Sevan for you guys on Wednesday on my Instagram! You do not want to miss this one! As always for your convenience

Cobalt & Damask Print Midi Skirts! Featuring Modestly Dressed Boutique

Happy Sunday fellow skirt sisters!

I feel the need to update you on so much that has been going on this past week!

We had a blast going to Zion National Park to go hike the infamous “Narrows”!

Hiking and shopping are my two all-time favorite past times!

Look at how stunning God’s creation is!! It is pretty neat to get out of the city and just take in fresh air, stunning views, and a rest for a few days.

Stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.

Job 37:14

img_3510

Today’s church outfit consists of a classy damask/paisley print paired up with touches of cobalt blue!

img_3602

img_3595

The skirt I am loving is from a custom designed modest clothing boutique “Modestly Dressed Boutique!” 

She literally made this gorgeous skirt by hand AND it has POCKETS!

(Can we all agree that all skirts should come with pockets?!)

What skirts with pockets mean to me:

  1. A place to put my awkward hands!
  2. I can carry a lippie with me to retouch at any given moment
  3. The quality of a skirt immediately goes up with the simple integration of pockets!

img_3611

 

img_3610

The ”Melissa Pleated Midi Skirt” has a thick waistband to create an illusion of a smaller waist, and the large box pleats make it that much more classier!

ModestlyHot PRO tip: Invest in a good quality black and white printed skirt because the outfit possibilities are endless! It will match with a variety of colors, prints and patterns! Black and white is a must, perfect for all seasons and is absolutely timeless.

 

 

img_3609

I adore this Rue 21 Sparkle Bib Necklace! It transforms any outfit from simple to stunning by just wearing it over anything! The bigger the statement necklace, the better!

I just wanted to take some time and thank you all for being so supportive during these past few weeks and actually during these past 2 years! You all are so sweet and encouraging me whether it’s on IG, Snapchat or email! You literally have the best timing! #ModestlyHotfamily Hooray for 27k Followers!

Have a blessed Sunday!

God Bless,

Ashley Amber

Watercolor Floral Friday & GIVEAWAY!! Featuring Sierra Brooke Clothing!

Happy Friday Ladies!!

Can you believe June is fast approaching next week?! I certainly cannot!

If you follow me on my Instagram  @ModestlyHot you already know that many exciting changes are taking place regarding my logo, website, and business cards!

I am beyond THRILLED with the outcome! The logo is so me! Gold, Glitter, and a soft, blush pink for a more sleek and modern logo for the website ! {COMING SOON!}

Believe it or not, it was my dad’s idea to have my business cards printed in gold foiling! He is a strong believer in that a business card should be a quality card that someone actually wants to keep. I couldn’t agree more! Thank you all for the wonderful feedback received on these changes, and I hope to serve you ladies better with the new website I am working on.

Modestlyhot Logo

So since it is Friday, and it’s a beautiful day out, I think floral would be just fitting for a day like today! Today, I will be reviewing the awesome modest clothing company Sierra Brooke ! I am sure you ladies have heard of them before as they were one of the first modest shops I have encountered. Don’t you just love shopping at websites that you need not to worry about hemlines being too short, clothing being too tight etc? I certainly do!

logo-2

CAUTION: THE FOLLOWING OUTFIT IS BRIGHT  lol

img_3015

Oh yes! When it comes to color I tend not to hold anything back really. Summer is just around the corner, and I think we can all agree that summer is awesome, bright, and cheerful, so why can’t our outfits reflect that too? LOL #bloggerlogic

img_3001img_3004

img_2984img_2986

Watercolor print has been all the rage this year, whether it would be on notebooks, planners, clothing, or cute quotes, its no wonder I want everything watercolor! (I ultimately blame Kate Spade though 😉

The skirt I am wearing is in a size small and it features a stretchy waistband (love that!)

The print is an array of gorgeous, ultra bright colors that scream spring and summer season!

img_2996img_2998

On a side note: How fun are these Rue 21 Neon yellow studded heels? I purchased them last summer, and am still loving how bold and bright they are, yet they still embody classiness with the style of the shoe.

img_3007

Now let’s talk about accessories! A classy yellow 7 flower statement necklace was added for even more floral, feminine detailing, and a pop of color against my hot pink blouse.

img_2999

Fun Fact: This rosette statement necklace is where my collecting of statement necklaces all began! I believe it was 3 years ago, when J.Crew came out with these stunning necklaces that every blogger/Instagrammer had to have! Well, a quick search on Poshmark scored me my very first rosette statement necklace, and the obsession grew to acquire just about every single color to my collection!

P.S. A hair tutorial on this “Princess Half-Half Down” hair-do will be up next week, so keep an eye out for that! Thank you to all who requested it, seeing as it is my favorite go-to hairstyle that goes with every outfit!

img_2982

Since it’s Friday, and I love this skirt so much I was talking to Sierra Brooke and they thought it would be a great idea to share the love with you guys, and give you a chance to win this fabulous modest midi skirt!

14Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

The ULTIMATE Modest Holiday LookBook Part 1!

Hello and Happy Sunday Lovelies!!

Boy what a month it has been! I feel like I have so much to catch up with you guys!

Thank you so much for checking up on me after 2 weeks of not posting outfits! You all are so sweet! This month has been full of finals, sickness, flights and going back home for Christmas Break with my family!

Thankfully I am feeling so much better and ready to kill these blog posts! LOL

I am so excited to be back home for the holidays! Don’t get me wrong California is beautiful and all, but it just didn’t feel like Christmas without Utah snow!!

Here are some random snapshots of what’s been going on within the past 3 weeks! Enjoy!

Black Friday Shopping with my girls! It was so fun shopping at 1am! It’s the first time I have stepped foot in a Papaya store and I am obsessed! The deals were amazing at Forever 21! Hello 50% OFF Clearance! It was really awesome meeting two of my followers at the Windsor store! Thank you for totally making my night!

IMG_6345 It’s Christmas Time at Lancaster Baptist Church! It was so much fun inviting people to the Christmas Music Special! The orchestra did an awesome job with all the arrangements! It was a great night of worship and sharing the real reason of the season which is the great story of Jesus Christ!

IMG_6563

Christmas on campus! After a week of intense studying for finals it was awesome to just wind down and enjoy the tree lighting, Christmas crafts, gingerbread house making, and dinner served by our teachers! (So Sweet!)

(Yay for my house not collapsing! LOL)

IMG_6350Monday rolls around and it’s time to pack up for Christmas Break!!! EEK!!

Okay quick confession I actually had already been packed up and ready to go a week before! hahaha!  Needless to say I was excited to go back home for the holidays! Again I love West Coast Baptist College but after finals and just being sick for the longest time I was ready to check out and go home!

Finally at the airport and look what I found! A makeup vending machine! So Cute!! Who agrees that there must be more of these?!

IMG_6376

LA from above! Probably the best part of my flight was when I was half asleep and I heard the pilot announce ”Welcome to Salt Lake City Utah!” I immediately woke up and started getting exciting because I could recognize many familiar landmarks from above!

IMG_6386

And then I arrive to a Winter Wonderland!! #Utah

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Well after all those snapshots let’s get on with this Holiday Lookbook! Let me warn you it will probably be one of the biggest lookbooks I’ve ever done! I just ADORE everything about Christmas and just the entire month of December really! Jesus, lights, family, feasts, snow, and of course all the GLAMOROUS outfits one gets to rock and get away with only this time of year!

(Of course if you think like me; that there needs to be no reason to go all out! Who says you can only rock sequins in the Holiday season??)

Without further ado let’s get on with The ULTIMATE Modest Holiday Lookbook! Part 1!

Winter Wonderland Tulle! Featuring Taralynn’s White Tulle Skirt!

Literally one of my fav skirts ever!! It’s structured, flared and so princess like!

IMG_6407

Red Buffalo Plaid Shirt & White Tulle Skirt!

You’ll probably be seeing this skirt featured many times on my blog because I truly am obsessed with it! I have recently been loving shopping at Walmart for clothes! Yes Walmart!! They really have been stepping it up with trendy affordable pieces like this adorable buffalo plaid blouse! I believe it was only $12 and the statement necklace a steal at $3!

IMG_6370

IMG_6368

Holiday Pattern Mixing: Buffalo Plaid & Stripes! Featuring Taralynn’s Striped Midi Skirt!

Clearly I love Taralynn’s boutique because here is another of my all time favorite skirts! This designer inspired striped skirt is a staple in my closet! the cut and quality is exactly why I keep wearing this skirt over and over again! SO many endless combinations! A true Classic!

IMG_6355IMG_6354IMG_6137IMG_6135

Plaid, Cognac, & Holiday Green Midi Skirt!

Another Walmart find with this gorgeous black and white plaid shirt! just $12! If you haven’t noticed I have a thing for cognac colored anything! So Chic and rustic! This emerald satin like midi skirt dresses everything up for the holidays!

IMG_6179IMG_6181IMG_6178

Blanket Scarf, Plaid & Cozy Sweaters Featuring @NormonyDesign Custom Made Skirts! 

I have been wanting a plaid midi skirt for this holiday season and this sweet lady on Instagram makes custom skirts and she made me the perfect warm and cozy plaid midi skirt! I love how she personalized my package when it came and how it fits like a glove! It’s the perfect skirt for a cold snowy day!

IMG_6388IMG_6447IMG_6439IMG_6436IMG_6422IMG_6420IMG_6433IMG_6445IMG_6448

Buffalo Plaid Pencil Skirts, Leather Peplums & Gold Bow Belts Featuring Willow Blaire Boutique! 

My mission this holiday season was to find buffalo plaid clothing at an affordable price!! This buffalo plaid skirt is actually on sale now at Willow Blaire’s Boutique’s Website for just $19.95! Super warm and comfy! Perfect for those holiday feasts! LOL

I decided to pair up my buffalo plaid pencil skirt with my leather peplum from Forever 21! I scored this top on Black Friday for just $3 when it’s original retail price was $30!! SCORE! I added my fav gold bow belt from Two 12 Fashion! I totally recommend you guys to check their site out! They have the best belts ever!

Lastly I added some thick knit black tights and a pair of quilted booties from ShoeDazzle! 

IMG_6468

IMG_6038

Gold polkadot packaging?! and totally personalized too! Gotta love that!

Gold Holiday Sequin Maxi Dress! Featuring Neesees Dresses! 

Sparkle? Check! Comfy? Check! Modest? Check!

I mean need i say more? This is the kind of dress that needs no more bells and whistles added to it because the design of it just stands out beautifully simple yet glamorous!

I always love to give quality modest boutiques shoutouts and Neesees Dresses carry trendy and modest clothing!! Totally go ahead and take a look at their stuff!

IMG_6562-0IMG_6536IMG_6537IMG_6538

Black Sequin Maxi Skirt & Buffalo Plaid Shirt! Featuring Windsor Store!

EEK! This skirt though! I actually bought it last holiday season from the Windsor Store website but I unfortunately got sick and could not even get up from bed :/ (What is up with me getting sick around the holidays?!lol)

I was so excited to wear this skirt but i must admit it was a challenge trying to style this many sequins in one skirt! So I decided to tone it down with a classic plaid shirt from Walmart!

Navy, Golds and Midi Skirts! Featuring The Klassy Girl Boutique!

Oh you guys I cannot express my love for this skirt!!! It is just fit for a Princess that will make you feel like royalty! LOL The golds, navy and stripes just get me every time! C L A S S Y! Not to mention The Klassy Girl Boutique is one of my favs to collaborate with! They always have me drooling over their new skirts!!

IMG_6559-0IMG_6546IMG_6547-0IMG_6549-0IMG_6560-0

Gold, Black, Sequins & Polkadots! Featuring T AND J Designs! 

Gold, polkadots, and sequins?!! I don’t know about you but that’s a keeper in my book! 😉 I am OBSESSED with this T AND J Designs exclusive design! 

One of the things I love the most about this skirt is that it stretches in the waistline which may come in handy for those Mexican holidays feasts! LOL I wore a red long sleeved blouse from Ross that I purchased today for a festive look! I believe I say this quite often but really invest in those staple solid colored blouses! They’re very versatile because they’re solids yet they dress up an outfit than just a regular colored t-shirt! I always check my Ross every Wednesday (because that is when they have their inventory turnover) for these solid colored gems!

Oh!! I almost forgot to mention that T AND J Designs is having a 30% OFF Holiday Sale using the code: HOLIDAY30 at checkout!
