πŸπŸ‚πŸƒModest Fall Fashion! Polka Dots, Maroon and Midi Skirt Outfit!πŸπŸ‚πŸƒ

Hello Friends!!

September is finally here and I can’t believe that there are some people who are already starting their Christmas shopping!?

But then again my deadline is usually December 23rd lol! (Yes we’re those kind of Christmas shoppers :P)

So today’s post is all about the gorgeous fall colors that nature brings us each year!

IMG_4530

My outfit was completely inspired by the golds, maroons and reds of the falling leaves!

I absolutely LOVE this gold metallic midi skirt!

I truly appreciate when a skirt can be worn without any need of a skirt extender or slip!

Modest Length is crucial for all my skirts and I’m so loving that midi skirts were the trend of the season!

The pleating of this skirt is awesome and makes it much more voluminous!

Now I’ve seen yellow midi skirts before but this one has a gorgeous gold sheen over it and totally on point for fall!

My skirt is from The Klassy Girl Boutique, an affordable Modest clothing company!! Finding modest skirts is a challenge in itself but affordable as well?! Hahaha I’ll walk into a department store and find the most perfect, modest skirt ever and then I’ll flip the price tag over and see tripe digits?! Yeah I think I’ll pass heheh πŸ˜‰

I chose to wear my Polka Dot Utility blouse from Charlotte Russe with this golden yellow skirt because polka dots and yellow equal a happy outfit!

For accessories I wore my maroon colored bubble necklace from Our World Boutique!

I actually won this beauty from an Instagram giveaway they’re were hosting around this same time last year!

Totally worth checking them out for trendy and affordable necklaces!

I paired up this golden yellow skirt with my favorite cognac and gold buckle belt to keep the fall theme going on throughout the look.

Hair of the Day: I used my NuMe Curling wand with the biggest sized barrel for soft bouncy curls/waves.

I definitely recommend these curling wands!! I’ve had mine for about 2-3 years and it’s the only one that can make my curls last til the next day! They are a bit pricey but they’re always running deals on them!

Makeup of the Day: I love fall for many reasons, but its my most favorite time of the years because I get to go all vampy with my lip colors!! ❀

The one I’m currently loving is the NYX Simply Vamp Lip Cream in the shade ”She Devil’. It is the darkest of all shades but can be sheered out like I did today. The pigmentation is surreal! If you don’t sheer it out it looks like a straight up black with purple undertones, very vampy and chic!

Disney Princess Cinderella + Mint Tulle Skirt Outfit! Featuring Space 46 Boutique!

Happy Monday Friends!!

Disney Fashion Week is in full force and we are starting off the week with another Cinderella Inspired Outfit!

IMG_3235

IMG_3326-1

IMG_3703

IMG_3698

You may have recalled two of my past Cinderella Inspired outfits, but I couldn’t help myself for one more go at this stylish Princess!

IMG_4491

So for this week I wanted to channel my inner Cinderella in a more subtle way!

IMG_4478

You guys!! I finally found my holy grail tee shirt!!

Disney and Vogue ?!! Together?!! Ugh this is perfection beyond belief!

Two of my favorite obsessions wrapped up into one glorious top!

I scored this awesome shirt late one night browsing through Poshmark for just $10!

IMG_4480

I decided to pair up my Vogue Cinderella Shirt with my mint tulle skirt from Space 46 Boutique!

I have seen this dreamy tulle skirt all over Pinterest and I just HAD to get my hands on one!

I finally pulled the trigger and bought my first Space 46 tulle skirt! They are totally worth every penny!

My favorite part of this skirt is the satin waistband, and the volume of the skirt! Not too poofy and not too flat but just right!

I think Goldilocks would approve πŸ˜‰

IMG_4488

IMG_4475

For accessories and shoes I wore my single strand rhinestone necklace with my DIY Cinderella Shoes!

I decided on a single strand necklace so it would add some shine to the outfit but wouldn’t distract from the wording of the actual shirt. And for $1 you just can’t beat that! I actually bought a back up of the necklace!

For shoes I couldn’t decide on which pair, so I wore both! lol

The first pair I purchased it from a shoe clearance sale at the mall for just $5.99! They’re double strapped and have the coolest holographic print all over them!

IMG_4484

IMG_4472

IMG_4469

The second pair of heels were my Silver Glitter Heels I made from an old pair of pumps I had laying around!

Here’e the link to my DIY Cinderella Shoe tutorial! So Easy and a great inexpensive way to spruce up your old heels!

IMG_4493

IMG_4486

For hair and makeup: I went for my go to Retro 60’s Inspired Half Up- Half Down Do!

It’s really quite simple and some of you on Instagram have requested a hair tutorial, which I am currently working on!

My go to makeup is quite neutral, which includes just layering shadows of light brown, medium brown and dark chocolate brown to enhance the crease! Big lashes, and bold winged eyeliner have become part of my usual makeup routine.

My go to palette is definitely the LORAC PRO/LORAC UNZIPPED! The shadows are pillow soft and blend out gorgeously!

I used to be a total Urban Decay junkie now I am a LORAC girl all the way!

πŸπŸ‚πŸƒFall Fashion Trends! Chambray/Denim Edition!πŸπŸ‚πŸƒ

Happy 🍟Day Friends!!!
Well look at you making it another week!πŸ‘Š

I don’t know about you but I’m gearing up for some more fall fashion trends!

So for today’s featured fall trend is none other than the staple every girl should have in their closet…

CHAMBRAY/DENIM!!

Oh yes the trend that keeps coming back with full force season after season!

IMG_4405

I honestly don’t like to call Chambray a trend anymore its definitely here to stay!

I love my chambray tops and I adore it even more when they make an entire dress out of it and with polka dots!!IMG_4400

Fall is all about the rich tones and textures, and cognac + chambray is my favorite fall way to dress up this shabby chic dress!

IMG_4402

IMG_4409

You guys aren’t going to believe this but my entire outfit was all from good ol’ yard sales! LOL

I scored this adorable Polka Dot Chambray Dress from Sandy’s closet for just $5 at our Blogger Yard Sale earlier this month!

(also known as @sandyalamode on IG)

My cognac Bag was also from a yard sale a while ago and its literally one of my favs!!

I love how rustic and aged it looks and the bucket style shape is so up my alley!

IMG_4417

IMG_4414

IMG_4408

Now chambray can be paired up with literally anything and still look so chic! But since my dress had the cutest white micro polka dots I decided to wear white to make the white polka dots pop!

I added a thin white buckle belt paired up with my white 5 flower necklace from Walmart! (Haul coming soon πŸ˜‰

For months now my favorite white flower necklace from Our World Boutique broke and I was left without my staple piece?:(
Until last week I was randomly roaming the aisles of Walmart and found a TON of flower statement necklaces for just $5!

SCORE!!

Annnddddd then…. they somehow all appeared in my cart at checkout…? I know, So Weird.

πŸπŸ‚πŸƒFall Fashion Trends!πŸƒπŸ‚πŸ Modest Ways to Style a Fringe Skirt!

Hello friends!!
Well it’s official, Summer is over and scarves, boots and Pumpkin Spice Latte is in our midsts. β˜•οΈ
Fall is literally my FAV time of the year!!
πŸ‚πŸπŸƒπŸ˜­
It’s also my favorite because of all the fabulous fall fashion trends!!πŸ˜πŸ‚πŸ™Œ
I’ll be trying all these trends out for 2015 and seeing what works and what doesn’t! Lol
So the first trend for fall 2015 is none other than Fringe Skirts!

IMG_4349.JPG

Oh yes!! Now let me explain for a second why I LOVE this trend!
Now I know what you’re thinking, “fringe is okay but just not on me..”
Let me stop you for a second! Repeat after me, I (insert name) NEED A FRINGE SKIRT!!!
Cause ya do!

The movement of this skirt is phenomenal ! πŸ™Œ It isn’t just visually interesting but has great movement to it as well!

IMG_4351.JPG

IMG_4350.JPG
You guys know me and I normally gravitate toward the glitter, sparkle and glam! But I have a soft spot for anything Cognac!😍 My total obsession! The color cognac makes literally everything so chic!

IMG_4354.JPG

IMG_4353.JPG

IMG_4352.JPG
So you purchased your fringe skirt (congrats! πŸŽ‰) Now what comes next?
Well the way I see a fringe skirt outfit can be very boho/rustic but let’s add a bit of glam shall we?
I added this amazing vintage gold and brown link chain belt that added a bit of shine.

IMG_4363.JPG
I wore this dainty white lace top with my skirt to make it a bit more girly and soft, which by the way I scored this top for just $3!

IMG_4355.JPG

IMG_4357.JPG

IMG_4356.JPG
Let’s talk about shoes!!πŸ™†πŸ‘ 
I actually received my order from JustFab from their huge summer clearance sale and I couldn’t wait to wear my wedges the same day!
πŸ˜¬πŸ‘  I mean who knows if I’ll live the next day to wear them right?
Hahha totally kidding!
Random Pet Peeve of the day: Is it just me or am I the only one who can’t understand why people purchase stuff just to store it away in their closet?

Like wear it for Pete’s sake! 😫

Anyways back to these shoes!!πŸ˜πŸŽ‰πŸ‚πŸ™Œ
I scored them for just $10 and they’re the most comfortable pair of heels yet!
I didn’t have to break them in!

πŸ‹When Life gives you lemons..πŸ‹ Fruit Fashion Trends!

Hello and Happy Thursday! πŸ‹

IMG_3871

I’d be lying if I didnt say that the weather often inspires my outfit for the day! Β So you can usually tell what kind of weather we’re having by just looking at my outfit! Lol

IMG_3863

Why yes it was a gorgeous sunny day and I had just the right dress ! 😍

Theres nothing happier than lemon print dresses!!πŸ˜πŸ‹πŸ‹πŸ‹πŸ‹

For the longest time ever I was coveting a lemon print dress! Theres just something so vintage yet so fun about these types of prints!

IMG_3864

Apparently when life gives Banana Republic lemons they make a lemon print dress and a gorgeous one at that too!

IMG_3859

Can you say yellow?! 😜 Nothing was held back on this outfit! Being a total pink kinda girl I gotta say that this year my closet has been filled with yellow! πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›

IMG_3855

IMG_3851

“Fruit Fashion” as I like to call it has been all the rage this summer season! Pineapples, lemons and strawberry prints are making a statement in the fashion world. Now I know what you’re thinking,” only a five year old or a crazy kindergarten teacher would wear this!” Uh uh! This can totally be worn as an everyday casual outfit! Fruit prints are not only ADORABLE but can look real classy and chic!

IMG_3853

This dress would also look great paired up with a forest green cardigan and nude pumps!

The fit on this dress is awesome and so comfortable! Trust me finding a dress that is the perfect length especially for a petite girl is like finding a needle in a haystack!

IMG_3857

That awkward moment you match a golf cart!πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚ #golfcartfashion

IMG_3868

IMG_3858

I loved how bright all the colors came together! Look out for more Fruit Inspired Fashion Finds on my blog!!
Well that wraps up today’s post! Hope you enjoyed it!!

I quickly went to browse through the sales they had and boy what perfect timing to go when they had the ENTIRE store on sale!

Walking in I saw a skirt that was made just for me and I couldn’t believe the price!!

I ADORE tulle skirts and I’m usually paying $30-$60 each!

Now with the tulle skirt it was $20 + the floral blouse $6.99 making the total $26.99

Almost $7 over budget but I knew I wasn’t going to stop the savings right there!

a $10 OFF when you spent $20 or more!

Modest Church Outfit! How to Style a Tulle Skirt!

Happy Sunday To you all!!!

Boy it was a HOT day here in Utah! I mean wearing a tulle skirt in 90 degree weather was probably not the best idea but I was feeling in high spirits today and wearing bright colors was a must!

IMG_2304

You might recognize this skirt from one of my previous lookbooks, the ”Modest Disney Princess” LookBook !

I only wore it once for the photo shoot but I finally found it again just casually hanging in my closet begging for me to wear it again!

IMG_2301

You might recognize this ”shirt” from one of my previous outfits!

IMG_1955

Lol I wanted to wear a crop striped shirt from Forever 21 that is EXACTLY like this one but it was a long sleeve top and it was much too hot for that!

Here’s a little fashion hack that I always use! Wear your dresses as tops for your high waisted skirts!

Sometimes the perfect top isn’t really a top!

So instead I wore this She InsideΒ pencil dress as my top today since it was short sleeve!

IMG_2300

For my necklace I wanted a chic and polished look so I opted for a gold necklace I purchased from Claire’s!

IMG_2304

Truth be told I woke up this morning with second day Flinstone hair; so up it went! (Gotta love 2 minute hairstyles on a Sunday morning!)

IMG_2303

Fashion Inspiration for today’s outfit goes to the fabulous bumble bees!

IMG_2299

Well that wraps up today’s church #ootd ! I hope you all have a short Monday tomorrow!

Til Next Time

XOXO,

Ashley
