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.

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!

CAUTION: THE FOLLOWING OUTFIT IS BRIGHT  lol

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

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!

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.

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.

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!

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!
Can I just say, Thank you to all the generous companies who are willing to give ModestlyHot followers a chance to win all these fabulous prizes!

Yellow & Gold Polka Dot Skirt Outfit! + Blogger Market Haul!

Happy Saturday Girlies!!

The weather is finally hot and I mean really hot, perfect weather for a blogger market shopping trip!

Eleventh Avenue hosted today a blogger ”flea market” basically what it is, is a bunch of top fashion bloggers selling their fabulous wardrobe for ridiculously low prices!

IMG_2531

I went with my super stylish blogger friend Keara from Modest Style! The deals we scored were unreal!

I felt like a kid in a candy store!

IMG_2539

My very first purchase was from Jackie Welling from Little J Style!

This gorgeous Chic Wish Poppy Dress! I was so excited to see it hanging there because I was literally going to order it online! I also picked up a mint 5 strand pearl necklace for just $4!

IMG_2552

So the next item is by far the BEST DEAL OF THE DAY!!

I saw this gorgeous mint tulle Shabby Apple Skirt and didn’t pick it up immediately because honestly I thought it would be about $50-60 still a good deal even at that price considering its original price of $128.00!! I finally decided to ask what the price was and my jaw dropped to the floor as she stated it was only $20!! I’m sorry what?!  I was just about to purchase this skirt for $128 at Shabby Apple last Saturday and she says its only $20!? Oh Happy Day!

Shabby_Apple_Wooster_Skirt_Mint_2__74589.1421220986.454.682

IMG_2549

My next item was a J. Crew Sequin Anchor tank for just $2!! I mean these prices were better than the thrift store!!

IMG_2548

Also I bought an Asos peplum waist belt for just $1! I’ve always wanted a peplum waist belt and I’m so glad to have found it at a steal!

IMG_2550

Let’s talk about jewelry you guys!! This was my favorite spot to hit up, just good ol’ digging out jewelry out of a cardboard box! All statement jewelry was just $1!! Yes please! I’m always breaking my fashion jewelry so I try to get deals on jewelry and keep it under $10!

Also I bought some extra that may or may not be for you guys! (*hint *hint*)

IMG_2553

This one is my favorite!! Perfect for dressing up that little white tee!

IMG_2554

Yellow and polkadots!! Now I know I do not need anymore polka dot skirts but I just couldn’t help myself!! Kingdom and State was having an amazing sale of all their clothing!

So I picked up a couple of necessities! 😉

IMG_2547

Now I’ve saved the best for last!! Okay you guys guess how much I paid for this gorgeous sequin mermaid skirt?!!

No, not $10

Not $5

But just $2!!! WHAT?!

I’m still in shock!!

Keara and I bought matching sequin skirts and look forward on styling them for you guys!!

IMG_2546

IMG_2540

So that does it for my blogger market haul!! Great Deals and I want to go to another one asap!!

What I wore today had to be fairly comfortable but still cute!

IMG_2556

I am IN LOVE with this gold polka dot pencil skirt from the Hemline Mom!

I missed out on this skirt last time on Jane.com and I wasn’t going to let it go by again!

IMG_2559

I wore it with a yellow blouse from Ross! Can we just say that Ross has the best solid colored tops ever and cheap too!

IMG_2557

Yellow is starting to grow on me! I was never a yellow fan but I can see how cute and happy this color really is! (I would always think of a baby chick when I would see the color yellow and would be kinda turned off by it lol no offence to all the baby chicks but I just dont want to look like one ! lol)

IMG_2562

Well that’s a wrap!

God Bless You!

XOXO,

Modest Monochromatic Outfit! Featuring My New Just Fab Heels!!

Hello there Girlies!!!

I actually wore this outfit on Sunday and wanted to wear it again! I love the classic color combo of black and white!

It’s so clean and very sophisticated!

Monochrome is actually a huge trend for the summer! I once read in a magazine if you want to stand out just do the opposite everyone else is doing! So while I do love floral prints and bright colors I wanted to shake things up and wear a monochromatic look!

IMG_2084

That awesome moment when you find a skirt that matches your shoes?!

PRICELESS!

I bought these GORGEOUS classy black and white pumps from JustFab about a month ago! (Forgot to skip the month oopsies!)

I was determined to find a skirt with the similar print as my shoes! Oh boy did I find some amazing skirts BUT for the wrong price! (Sorry Neiman Marcus but $399 for a pencil skirt?!)

So I kinda gave up on my hunt for the perfect skirt to match my shoes and decided to go to the outlets and see what deals I could find!

IMG_2083

I went to Nordstrom Rack and went straight for the clearance skirt section like I always do!

Lo and behold I saw the skirt I was frantically searching for!!! (GASP!)

IMG_2085

It was on the clearance rack for $30!! Now I normally don’t pay $30 for a single piece of clothing but at that point $30 sounded way better than $399!

Plus it’s really nice quality!

IMG_2081

I paired up this shirt with my thrifted J. Crew find and I cuffed the sleeves up! For my accessories I wore my favorite necklace, the Crystal Cluster Necklace from Purple Peridot! This necklace was such a hot commodity on Instagram and I can see why! It turns any outfit from casual to glam!! (And you all know how I feel about Glamour!)

IMG_2082

I can totally see this as a ”corporate style outfit!”

Corporate Chic is what I like to call it.

I love the clean lines and the lack of color! lol

I hope you all enjoyed this post and I’ll chat with you soon!!

XOXO,

Ashley

I woke up this morning to a VERY happy mail day!! New shipments came in for my boutique!! AAH!! It’s always so exciting getting new skirts for you girlies!! (Christmas in April!)

I could not wait any longer and I had to try on this new arrival!!

Every girl needs to have at least one leopard print skirt in her wardrobe and this one is pretty amazing!!

IMG_1340

As soon as I looked at the skirt I knew I wanted to pair it up with black! I wanted this look to be chic, not very colorful, but still make a statement!

IMG_1326

I wore a simple chambray button up shirt with a black rosette necklace purchased from VeryJane! 

IMG_1335 I simply can not get over how many of my favorite things are in this skirt!! I mean its pleated, its midi length, its comfortable and of course its a chic leopard print!

Definitely made my Monday a whole lot better!

IMG_1324 Let’s talk about these shoes for a second!!! One of the lovely girls I follow on Instagram Alee, from Obsession Expression blog totally made me buy these amazing bow strap heels!! Hers were a gorgeous nude color but they only had black available at Go Jane!

I got a little shoe crazy since they were having a 60% OFF sale and plus I used an online coupon code from Retail Me Not!

IMG_1339

To say I am obsessed with these shoes is an understatement!

IMG_1341

Bows, straps and black?! Um Yes please!

Shopping for Modest Clothes

Happy Friday Everyone!                                                                                                         image

 

I wanted to write this post because I always get emails and comments on Instagram about where do I buy my modest clothes? Believe me I know the difficulty of finding trendy but modest clothes these days! But I do have some stores and websites I can rely on for inexpensive modest clothing! Living in Utah I have been learning that there are alot of local modest shops all around the state! Im going to share with you (in no particular order) my no fail shops for finding modest clothes! (cute and trendy too by the way.)

1. Sexy Modest Boutique image

Im pretty sure all of you have heard of them! They have amazing skirts and I love how they emphazise that you can look great but modest as well! This shop is great for finding all things modest! They were my first ever introduction to modest clothing! I found them while I was desperately searching for an inexpensive skirt extender and out popped their website and I’ve been hooked ever since! They always have great sales and new arrivals!                                                    image

 

2. Very Jane                                                                                                                                  image

Oh how I love Veryjane! It is a daily boutique deal website that has amazing deals on modest clothing especially skirts! I think I’m addicted because I always end up buying something everyday! There is always something new everyday and cheap too! Their skirts are usually $10-$12 when they’re normally $30! Most of my favorite clothes are from Very Jane! The only con is that their clothing is on a first come, first serve basis! I always check their website around midnight since that is when they put new items up!                                                                 image

 

3. P. Kid Chicks Shop                                                                                                                  image

First of all I have to say that their sense of fashion is on point! I love their IG account! Their shop is equally amazing! Steph and Nicole are Pastor’s Kids (hence their name ”P. Kid. Chicks”) that are dedicated to inspire young girls to dress modestly. They have gorgeous modest skirts that are affordable as well!

 

4. Windsor Store 

Windsor is kind of like Forever 21 but better! They sell gorgeous formal dresses! While not everything in their website is modest, their midi skirts, however are. Their skirts are so unique!

5. Modest Closet                                                                                                                            image

Modest Closet is one of my favorites for afforadable modest clothing! I love their pencil skirts!! They have the best fit on me! If you are on a budget then this is the place to shop. I totally reccommend the Piper Pencil skirts, definitely a staple piece in my wardrobe.

I could go on and on but I don’t want to over do it so I’m going to stop here. I may do like a part 2 or something later! 🙂  Work awaits me now.
