Dorothy Wizard of Oz Inspired Outfit! Featuring Shabby Apple!

”We’re Off to see the Wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz!”

Now that I got that off my chest (and stuck in your head ) let’s begin with today’s outfit!

I’ve always been a bit of a nerd when it comes to cosplaying! Now I am aware my version of cosplaying isn’t as extreme as others but just enough to get recognized as my desired characters!

Now Dorothy has always been on my ”To-Do” Outfit list for several reasons!

1.You get to carry around a cute little basket

2. Her red lipstick and makeup!

3. Baby Blue with Red Glitter Slippers!

All I am missing is my Toto!!! Funny story I was at Zurchers shopping for a birthday party and I saw the cutest mini basket with Toto prop!! UGH I should have bought it but I didn’t think I would actually use it again!

IMG_2361

Initially this outfit was inspired by the name of my skirt, the ”Dorothy Skirt” from Shabby Apple! I have seen this skirt all over Pinterest and I knew I just HAD to have it!!

As I took it home I was pondering long and hard of what to pair up this beautiful polka dot skirt with! (I was having fashion blogger’s block lol) I read the label on the skirt and AHA! the light bulb came onas I knew I was going to be Dorothy!

The top had to be white to make the white polka dots in the skirt pop! But I wanted to go for a glam version of Dorothy so I decided on wearing a white sequin top instead of a plain tee!

(Sequins and polka dots? Um yes please!)

I actually had my eyes on these GORGEOUS sequin tops around Christmas time but I wasn’t going to pay $20 each for all three! I waited and waited til I scored all three tops for just $15!

Dorothy is known for her adorable pigtails but I for sure cannot rock them as well as she did!

So I went for a vintage half up half down hairstyle with a poof an a bow in the back!

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 Inside 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!)

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

Modest Summer Nautical Outfit! Featuring Debbie’s Closet +GIVEAWAY!!

Happy Friday Everyone!!

Boy what a week!! I mean I am physically exhausted yet ready to roll for next week!

It has been raining the past few weeks here in Utah but today it finally feels like summer!

I am SO excited for summer because I can finally wear my stash of nautical themed clothing again!!!

IMG_2259

This shirt is EVERYTHING! It is a new purchase and I’ve already worn it in 4 outfits! (Different places of course lol)

Since it was very hot out, I did a very high sock bun with my bangs framing my face.

I’ve been wearing my hair in an updo because truth be told, I have not had any time to curl/straighten it at all this week!

It used to take me FOREVER to get this updo to look just right, sometimes it would be to loose or too tight or lopsided!

Turns out that I bought a new sock bun from Claire’s for about $5 which is more than what I paid for my first sock bun (only paid like a buck for the first one ) but it looked like it would hold way more hair!

I totally recommend the sock bun from Claire’s!!! It really made a difference and I can get this hair style done in less than 2 minutes!

IMG_2258

So let’s talk about this skirt!! It’s AMAZING!!!

IMG_2251

IMG_2255

From the first minute I tried it on I knew that this would be my go to skirt for my ”lazy days!”

It’s like this cool scuba material that just holds you all in! They literally feel like pajamas and they’re modest which is always a plus!!

I decided to pair this skirt up with my red bow heels to add a pop of color! I will be forever in love with the color combination of red,navy and white!

Modest in Red, White & Blue! Memorial Day Outfit Ideas!

Hey you guys!! Happy Friday!! It’s been crazy how fast this week has gone by!

To say that I am ready for the weekend is an understatement! (Shopping, food and fun? Yes Please!)

Memorial Day is right around the corner and I thought to myself ,”hmm I have dozens of outfit ideas on that!”

I personally love anything that is red,white and blue, anchors, stars and stripes! It all excites me!!

IMG_2151                           So for today’s outfit I have the morning off so I am going to swing by the store and pick up an order I made by phone.(Cant wait to show you all what the mystery item is!!)

I recently shopped at Rue21 and picked up some clearance goodies since they were having the entire store on sale!  plus buy one get one 50%OFF !

So…… I bought this top!

IMG_2147

I know I know… You’d think I would have enough anchor print tops already right?!

TOTALLY WRONG!

You can never have too many cute anchor shirts!!

As soon as i saw it I knew it had to be mine + I got it half off!

You can’t tell in the pic but the sleeves are actually cuffed! So J. Crew!

Now, I loved how the first outfit looked but last year I did a pretty similar look with the same skirt but with a different anchor top which was also coincidentally from Rue 21!

IMG_2135

#tbt

So I wanted to jazz it up a bit and I knew exactly what I was going to pair it up with!

I actually had to dig this striped H&M blazer from my hamper which is pretty intimidating because it was stuffed full!

IMG_2141

I love how this outfit screams nautical! Oh and here’s a quick little tip for easy pattern mixing!

Always match colors not patterns! In this outfit the striped blazer works with the anchor print top because they’re both navy and white. And the pop of yellow works because yellow and navy are opposites on the color wheel.

IMG_2149

Since there was alot of pattern mixing and colors already I opted for my nude Christian Louboutin heels!

Not the comfiest pair of heels but definitely the most stylish! (That pop of red gets me every time!)

IMG_2144

IMG_2143

IMG_2146

I already want to wear this shirt again!!

Well that’s all for now and I have included some outfit ideas for Memorial Day Weekend and 4th of July!

Hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday!

Love ya!

XOXO,

Ashley
