I layered a white shirt from Ross that you guys have been asking me where I have been getting these plain, solid colored, scoop style shirts! Literally, these shirts are the perfect basics for any skirt! They are in the one size section  and are fitted! Perfect for my infamous poofy skirts!

img_5986

I adore the cut and style of this dress! So light but has a structured and defined waistline!

Classy Loft also sells cute and comfy modest clothing at affordable prices!!

I will be featuring more of their adorable clothing in the following weeks to come!

img_5987img_5988

I have the cutest story to tell! As me and my good friend and photographer Trish were just about to wrap up our photoshoot, this little girl named came running up and screamed, “Minnie! Minnie! Oh I love Minnie mouse!!” LOL Needless to say, It made my day!

Fun Fact #1: Why yes I did indeed climb these rocks with 5 inch heels 😉 Had my friend (photographer) Mildred scared to death! 

Disclaimer: Pretty please do not try this at home! It was not a safe place to be hiking with heels, but a blogger has to get her Pocahontas shots!

Here’s what you will need:

  1. Brown Fringe Skirt
  2. White Top

  4. A chunky tribal turquoise necklace
  5. Brown Matte Lipstick (I used the Essence Matte Lip Liner in Soft berry! $2)

img_3289 (1)img_3287 (1)img_3282 (1)

I finally found the PERFECT and MODEST fringe skirt on Poshmark!! No slip needed!

Usually with a fringe skirt the fringe would not be full enough to be modest, however this one not only was a lined skirt, but the fringe was full of beautiful movement!

Oh did I mention that it was only $9?!

img_3426 (1)

Now that’s what I call a fringe skirt! Cannot believe this was a skirt originally from Forever 21! All you Poshmarkers go ahead and follow J’s Closet on Poshmark! Incredibly fast shipping and beautiful clothes! img_3425 (1)

A necklace that makes a statement! Mirina Collections sent me this STUNNING turquoise tribal inspired famous necklace! By far one of my favorites! Where Tribal meets Glamour! img_3332 (1)img_3421 (1)img_3435 (1)

FUN FACT #5: Amanda from Aesthically You is the best at Eyelash Extensions in Utah!

I am not just saying that! She truly is very gentle yet effective at her job! My eyelashes can look good as soon as I wake up! What I liked the most about them was the amount of curl they had and they were not heavy at all!

Fall Fashion Modest Outfits 2016! Tribal Skirt & Maroon Featuring LuLa Roe Review!

Happy Wednesday!!

Well today was officially my last day working at my In-N-Out home store #245 for the summer!

I have mixed emotions about it all really, one part of me is excited to return to the grind of Bible college, the other part of me is just bummed out that I have to leave the comforts of my home, work, and family behind! As soon as I have adjusted to my new managers, associates and my schedule it is time to leave and readjust again to a new environment.

However the constant changes are beneficial to the overall growth of a person. Change brings daily challenges to rise up against, new faces to meet, and a chance to extend Christ’s love to others I would have never met if I stay in Utah. So with that being said, BRING IT ON Fall Semester!!

I may not be the smartest, strongest, nor most talented, but I know of someone who is all that and much more!! I’m so grateful that God is more interested in my AVAILABILITY than my ABILITY!

“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness”

2 Corinthians 12:9

 

img_5582

So onto today’s fall fashion modest outfits for 2016! & let me tell you I have plenty in store for you ladies!!

I was sent this gorgeous tribal printed pencil skirt from LuLa Roe by the kind Laura Medina who shares in ModestlyHot’s same mission in providing faith and fashion inspiration to ladies all across the globe!

img_5579img_5578

I am obsessed with my Cassie style pencil skirt from LuLa Roe! Literally the comfiest outfit and brand on the planet!! Laura Picked this gorgeous piece out for me and it tied in beautifully with my fall modest look book!

img_5576

If you follow my Instagram stories, you know I bought every single color of these one size stretchy long sleeved tops! They are the perfect fit and go with EVERY OUTFIT and for $4.99 you cannot beat that price! Look for them in the “one size'” tops at the end of the aisle! They’ve added new fall colors like mustard, maroon, plum and olive green!

GASP #2!!! I am wearing a hat?! Yeah this blog post is full of surprises isn’t it?

Thanks to my dear friend and photographer Mildred aka the expert in trendy hat wear for convincing me to try it out! lol

This beauty I scored at Forever 21, it was pricier than what I am used to paying for an accessory , but the pictures turned out great so I am satisfied!

img_5582

img_5573img_5574img_5584

That does it for modest fall look numero uno! Many more are to come this week!

So what is my overall consensus on this LuLa Roe Cassie Skirt?

 

F A B 😀 OR DRAB?:( 

MOST DEFINITELY FAB!

I like list making so here are my reasons on why I dig this skirt!

  1. COMFORT:  A comfy skirt will always have a special place in my heart!
  2. CUTENESS! Fall calls for warm sweaters, pumpkin spiced EVERYTHING and tribal prints!  
  3. MODEST: Length comes right at my knee, It is not uber tight, and has a stretchy waistband

This is ModestlyHot and I approve this message ; )

Til Next Time!

God Bless,

Ashley Amber

Beauty Tip Tuesday: How to grow your nails FASTER and LONGER!

Welcome to Beauty Tip Tuesday girls! A new beauty segment where I will be giving you simple beauty tips that have helped me! This week is all about nails!

img_5053

For the longest time I’ve always wanted longer, stronger nails without having the need to get them professionally done or with the help of press on nails. However, strong nails were just not part of my DNA apparently as my nails would chip and break at the slightest of pressure applied to them.

 

So as I was walking down Costco one day I noticed these Hair, Skin and Nails vitamin gummies  and decided to give them a shot!

8156eSEoRkL._SY679_

Long story short: Best thing that ever happened to my nails and hair!

The first difference I saw were in my nails! They were stronger, longer and looked as if I had acrylic nails! Not to mention I went about 4 weeks with them being that long and strong and no chips/splits/breaks  whatsoever! I took 2 gummies a day for about 3 months and saw my hair grow out super quick on the 3rd month! The only thing I am still on the fence on is the “skin” benefit part of it. I have been taking these for a total of 6 months and have yet to see a noticeable difference in my skin. (Personally, I find that drinking 72 oz. of water does the trick for your skin!)

Ending thoughts about this products: Totally BUY! It is fantastic for hair and nails (not so much skin) and they’re quite easy to take versus the soft gels they also sell.

The hard part is actually remembering to take them every single day, but that is beside the point 😉

Part 2 of Beauty Tip Tuesday: Nail Polish Holder Ring?! Fab or Fail?!

Alright for part two of our beauty tip Tuesday is about the decorating part of your nails!

I cannot be the only one who struggles with the nail polish bottle while trying to paint my nails either in my car, at the park, at school, etc. and just plain anywhere I need quick color touch up! The nail polish spills on the expensive carpet (and someone is about to give me an hour long lecture about how much that carpet was), never being able to reach the bottom of the bottle, smudging galore, and the more universally known problem, shaky hands!

Well all of those problems have made a wonderful and downright GENUIS solution:

Friends allow me to introduce you to…….

 

The Original wearable nail polish bottle holder!

img_4743

img_4741

 

Seriously where has this been all of our lives?!

img_4741img_4740

It’s as simple as 1, 2,3 !

You place your nail polish bottle at the crown.

Next, you wear it as a ring. (Fits all sizes and is adjustable to your fingers.

Finally, you cut in HALF your time, because you’re that much cooler than everyone else with this contraption! 😉

img_4744

 

$5 and you call it good for life! Here is the link to my  very own nail polish bottle holder I chose the color, “Spa Green”!

Nail polish bottle holder in “Spa Green”  via Amazon.

Hope you enjoyed this Beauty Tip Tuesday! #happynailday

Modest Gold Sequin Maxi Skirt Featuring Headbands of Hope!

Happy Sunday Everyone!!

Today’s outfit is all about Fashion with a Purpose!

img_4996

Headbands of Hope and I have teamed up to not only promote these super cute handmade headbands, but also with every headband that is purchased, one is given to a child with cancer! How awesome is that?! 

img_3670

img_4987

Around the same time Headbands of hope contacted me, a local Salt Lake City volunteer group invited me to attend and participate in a bike parade and 5k for a sweet little girl named Ruby, who was born with a large mass on the back of her head that resembled a tumor.

During a routine MRI scan this spring, a technician inadvertently captured the top of Ruby’s lungs in the image. A CT scan soon followed and it was discovered that Ruby’s lungs were full of tumors. She was given the diagnosis of Stage 4 Metastatic Melanoma.

After hearing what Ruby and her family were going through, the community decided to round all their resources together to organize a bike parade and 5K run to raise proceeds for the Thackeray family.

The turn out was unbelievable! Many well known Utah shops donated 5 table full of merchandise and gift baskets ready for the Silent Auction!

There were so many good things to bid on! ( a dozen full of tamales were among the items lol)

img_3686img_3697img_3699img_3701

Being a kids bike parade I dressed up as Snow White! ( because what little girl doesn’t like Disney?!)

img_4993img_4994img_4995img_4986

For the Headbands of Hope photoshoot I decided on wearing this gorgeous gold plate headdress that has a diamond chain draped on the outside! A floor length sequin maxi skirt with my “Walking with Purpose” tee seemed to match the mission of Headbands of Hope perfectly!

I would totally check out their website and pick out headband and become a headband hero to a little girl battling cancer! It’s amazing to see what an impact a small decorative headband can have on a girl’s self esteem! >>>>Check out the Giving Gallery HERE!<<<

P.S How cute is this little pineapple (“aka”Penelope the Pineapple lol)  right here? Not only tasty but photogenic as well ; )

 

Thanks Costco!

img_4952

For this summery outfit I decided to pair it up with my new favorite skirt from Taylored Fashions!  I’m already thinking of 101 outfit ideas for yellow striped skirt!! The material is uber strong and of great quality with slight stretch. You know a skirt is made with quality by just the weight of it.

Tuesdays are so much better than they are #tuesdayshoesday!

And my, my these floral JustFab wedges have some history to them! I bought them almost a year and a half ago and I kept them in their box and totally forgot all about them! Lesson learned shoes in their box is no go for me!

img_2665 (1)img_2666 (1)

Floral, bows and wedges? Yeah I could stand waling in these all day long!

Meet My City Monday: Salt Lake City Eva’s Bakery & Kate Middleton Inspired Outfits!

img_4572

It’s that time again for another installment of “Meet My City Monday!” This week I will be featuring the cutest little bakery, Eva’s Bakery in downtown SLC!

slide1slide3

Arriving There: Eva’s Bakery in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City on Main street! Getting there is super simple even without the help of Google maps! You definitely will not miss it! The bakery stands out because it is a gorgeous royal blue with French decor!

Know Before You Go: Parking will most likely be on the curb of the busy street on Main, however there is usually a spot available depending on what time of day you go. If not, be prepared to park either at City Creek park or further down the street.

It is no secret that one of my favorite fashion icons hands down is the elegant Kate Middleton which today’s outfits were all inspired by her keen and elegant sense of fashion!

Look #1: Regal in Royal Blue 

img_4739

img_4735-1img_4732-1img_4733img_4734img_4738-1

This beautiful white and royal blue midi skirt {with pockets btw!} reminds me of fine china that you may see at the Buckingham Palace. 😉

Of course a bright neon yellow was used to accentuate and complement the rich royal blue thanks to the use of the color wheel.

ModestlyHot PRO Tip: Use the color wheel to your fashion advantage when you don’t have a clue on what to wear! 

Look #2: Blush on Blush Princess Formal Outfit

img_4696img_4695img_4694-1img_4689img_4688img_4691img_4692-1

I think this has to be one of my favorite outfits so far! I scored this gorgeous 1950’s blush colored peplum blazer from my local thrift store for just $5! Also paired this up with my new favorite skirt from Ross! Just $10

$15 scores you a Kate Middleton inspired outfit!

Mind. Blown.

img_4698img_4697img_4699

How gorgeous is this Pinterest famous statement necklace?! More details soon to come on where you can get your hands on one! My photographer and awesome friend Trish is about to launch her own jewelry and fashion line in the fall!!

img_4700-1

img_4701

Look #3: Pretty in Pink & Polkadots

img_4707img_4706-1img_4705

A simple pink on pink outfit with a pop of mint! A more casual (yet princess inspired) take on Kate Middleton’s fashion.

Special Thanks to the gorgeous and talented Charissa Lee who shot this whole photoshoot so quickly! (Because everyone knows I cannot keep up a straight face for more than an hour lol!)

All the outfit, photography and makeup used in this photoshoot will be listed down below!

God Bless and have a great Monday!
