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?!

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)

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

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!<<<

⚫️⚪️✨Black, White Striped Midi Skirt Outfit Featuring Two 12 Fashion✨⚫️⚪️

Hello friends and Happy Thursday!! 

Boy what a week! Tests almost everyday got me feeling exhausted and stressed out but I have to remember to keep calm and dress up because that’s the only way I can relax and enjoy my day lol! 

For today’s outfit I decided on going all monochrome with my new fav belt from Two 12 Fashion!!😍😍✨✨✨

   
 
  
You guys this belt was made for me!!!! Aaah!!!😍✨✨✨🙌🏻 Its gold,AND  it has a bow !! What more could you ask for?!? 

I can see this belt with almost everything I wear! Gold metal bar belts are pretty awesome but that bow just makes it that much more glam!✨😍🙌🏻

   
 
When I saw the belt I knew exactly what I wanted to pair it up with: black , white, and gold for a chic monochrome outfit! 

   
   
This skirt is definitely a classic! It’s from Taralynns Boutique !

It kind of reminds me of the popular Kate Spade striped midi skirt but for 1/3 of the price!! 

   
   
My black solid colored top is from Ross which was on clearance for just $3! Best $3 spent! 

My necklace is from Walmart and let me tell you how thrilled I am that Walmart has gorgeous boutique style necklaces for just $3-$5! 

For shoes I had to wear my Valentino inspired Rockstud heels! They go with every single outfit!🙌🏻😍❤️😉 

  
  
My bag was actually from a local Utah mall and they had a variety of colors: a nude/beige color, a red one and a black one! Knowing myself I knew I was going to dirty up the red and nude one way too quickly so I went for black! 

I adore a good structured bag almost like a satchel that resembles an antique doctor’s bag! 

   
 
For my hair I’m actually quite surprised on how it turned out considering I only did it in 15 minutes! You know those days where you are lazily curling your hair and you know it’s going to be a huge fail but you do it anyways? Well this morning was one of those days! I think what saved the curls was that I used the pin-curl technique. Basically you curl your hair and catch it before it falls in your hand and pin the curls up in a circle just like they did back in the 50s!  

 
Well that wraps up today’s post!! 

Hope you enjoyed it and make sure to keep  smiling today😄❤️ 

God Bless!

Xoxo,

Ashley

  

🍁🍂🍃Modest Fall Fashion! Polka Dots, Maroon and Midi Skirt Outfit!🍁🍂🍃

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 😉

IMG_4526

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!

IMG_4525

IMG_4524

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!

Well that wraps up today’s modest fall fashion outfit!

For this Disney Princess Look I decided on being Princess Jasmine!!

Before I could do the look I needed Jasmine’s Signature Headband!

All I did was hot glue the gem onto the ribbon and that’s it!

IMG_3047.JPG

IMG_3041-0.JPG

Now you can’t do Princess Jasmine without the genie lamp of course!!
I bought mine online at Walmart’s website for just $5!
I spray painted it gold because it’s original color was more of a brassy brown.

Now all my props are done and it’s time to head to the Great Salt Lake for pictures!

IMG_3268.JPG
For my hair I teased it like they did back in the 80’s lol!
I mean the amount of strength I built up in my arms from teasing my hair for this look was insane! Lol

One can of hairspray and 40 Bobby pins later…

IMG_3278.JPG
Let’s talk outfit for a second!
I scored this gorgeous mint pleated maxi dress at JCPenney for an amazing deal using the magic of stacked coupons!
I saw the dress and I immediately knew I had to have it for this look but the price tag was a whooping $80 bucks!
I waited about 2 weeks and the dress was on sale for $60. Not bad. But being an avid clearance shopper I wanted more savings.
So I had a $20 OFF $50 mobile coupon using my Snip Snap App (hallelujah!)
And then the sweet cashier said that I had a $10 OFF style rewards coupon available!!
Whoooo! Scored this dress for $20!
Now that’s my kind of deal!

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,

Ashley
