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.

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

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!

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.

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

How to be “ModestlyHot” When It’s Hot! 5 Tips to Dressing Modestly in the Summer!

Happy Wednesday!

I am beyond thrilled to announce the completion of my very first magazine article with the gorgeous ladies at Sparkler’s Magazine!  Let me tell you about the light this sparkling trio shines through their articles! I have personally got to know these lovely ladies through Instagram and emailing them back and forth, and instantly knew they were the most genuine ladies called to be an encouragement everywhere they go!

I don’t think they realize how much they have encouraged me to continue blogging especially in college when time seemed to be very limited to even take a breather for myself! I was honored to be asked to write an article for their June/July Issue!

Loose maxi dresses, t-shirt dresses,and midi dresses are all going to be our best friends in the summer season! Make sure to find dresses that already have a ¾ length sleeve or short sleeves, so that no additional layering is needed!

ModestlyHot PRO Tip: Stand out from the rest by adding a pop of color with a fabulous statement necklace! Belts are also a great accessory for added color, and to cinch that waist!

Tip #2: It’s time to tie the knot! (with Chambray & Button downs)

Oh what would we do without you chambray! A classic wardrobe staple that transitions throughout seasons so seamlessly! This summer look like a fashion trendsetter by simply tying your chambray/button down shirts in a knot!

ModestlyHot PRO Tip: To tie the perfect knot leave 3-4 buttons, unbuttoned, and gather your shirt 2 inches above your natural waist!

Skirt Extenders are a must have for summer! They provide modest coverage for those “almost long enough” dresses! In addition to adding 3-4 inches they add a cute and frilly detail to your skirts and dresses!
