The $20 Modest Outfit Challenge!!

IMG_2111

That’s right! Every Wednesday a modest fashion blogger will put her money saving savvy skills to the ultimate test!!

I did this challenge a long time ago and decided to repeat it again just because it’s so much fun!!

I love shopping the clearance rack and using as many coupons as the cashier will let me scan lol! (PRO TIP: Make friends with your cashier you never know when they’ll scan their 40% OFF employee discount just for you!)

I was encouraged to do this challenge because I want to let girls know that:

A: You can shop at regular chain stores and still find modest clothing or make them work!

and

B: Dressing modestly does not have to break the bank!

So without further ado, here is one of my outfits for under $20!

Here are the rules if you’d wish to follow along!!

~Your Outfit has to be under or $20

~ Shoes are not included but can be if you’re a pro like that!

So of course when you hear affordable clothing you think of shopping at ROSS!

It’s just the natural thing to do!

I not only found one outfit but 3!!

I found this GORGEOUS floral skater dress at the Juniors section and INSTANTLY fell in love!! So on trend for summer and it looks very chic with the right accessories!

These dresses do run very small! I had to size up all the way up to a size Large!

I decided to pair up this floral dress with the rich tones of cognac! I LOVE cognac! It’s so shabby chic!

I scored this dress for just $9.99!! Major score!

Now this dress hit exactly at my knee which was great when I am standing up but for modesty reasons I added a lace skirt extender! Plus I love the touch of lace paired up with the floral print!

This dress is already so colorful and amazing! So a white necklace seemed appropriate!

I got this necklace at a Utah Fashion Expo Event for just $3!!

IMG_2106                           I love how comfortable this dress is!! The fabric is so stretchy! Definitely going to be my ”All You Can Eat Buffet” Dress! LOL!

Alright so here’s the breakdown!

Floral Skater Dress: $9.99 but $10.68 w/tax

White Teardrop Necklace : $3

Cognac Belt: $3

GRAND TOTAL: $16.68!!

I hope you follow along this challenge and tag me on Instagram if you do!!

Can’t wait to see them!!

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!

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!

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

Day to Night Outfit

Hot pink, leather, and studs are whats happening in today’s outfit. I love this hot pink maxi skirt paired up with my favorite metal belt.

From Day to Night

From Day to Night

For daytime I wore this super bright maxi skirt with a basic white tee. (pretty casual but still cute.)  Now for night time I added one of my all time favorite Poshmark finds which is this studded leather jacket! I didn’t even bother wearing heels since you won’t be able to see them anyways. Now can we just talk about how bright this maxi skirt is?! I love it!Its very soft and definitely one of the better quality maxi skirts I own.                                                                                                      What I found very flattering is the fit,most maxi skirts have a tendency to just ‘stick’ to my thighs really awkwardly,but this skirt is tight on my waist and flares out and I love that! (Fit and flare is the silhouette that works best with my body.) This outfit was the most comfortable thing I have worn in a while! (Gotta love maxi skirts!) I feel like I put all of my favorite clothing pieces into one outfit, like no joke I loove this skirt and the jacket and the belt and even the white t-shirt! 20140403-135913.jpg

Free Bath and Body Works?!?

Yes you read right! There are several coupons for a free 3 wick candle ($22 value) and a free full size hand soap!
You must download the app Snip Snap to obtain the mobile coupons! I went to redeem my too good to be true coupons at Bath and Body Works and it totally worked! Even the cashier was shocked and downloaded the app right away. So the candle I picked up was Beach Cabana, not too sure it reminds me of the beach exactly but it smells like clean,fluffy towels with a hint of citrus. Either way the app is amazing and I’ve gotten so many freebies from it!
