LIFE UPDATE: Where have I been?!?! & Modest Fall Lace Dress featuring DownEast Basics 25 Year Anniversary!

Hello?

Is anyone out there?

What can I say? It has been awhile and you guys have just been so awesome and understanding through my college transition yet again!

The good thing is that I am finally all settled in and midterm examinations are over! (Can I get an amen to that?!)

Exciting NEWS!! I have been a huge fan of DownEast Basics for years and they recently contacted me to help them celebrate their 25 year anniversary! #25yearsofdowneast

DownEast holds a special place in my heart because they took a chance on me when I first started blogging and gave me that extra boost of encouragement that every blogger needs when they first start out. I am thrilled to see how God has blessed their company and how far they have come!

Reason #2 why I love DownEast is because they started from humble beginnings in my home state, Utah!

P.S. Every skirt girl needs to make a trip down to Utah “aka” modest shopping heaven! 14680509_10154567289693838_6897378747497153496_n.jpg

Their new fall collection has been released and I immediately knew that I wanted this “country chic” cream lace dress! Perfect for fall, spring, summer and even winter!

I absolutely love the fit on this dress, the perfect fit and flare! It is very difficult to find fit and flare dresses that actually are long enough (40″length size small)!

Since fall is my utmost favoritest (yes I realize that is not proper English grammar 😉 ), season of all, I had to do a fall themed carnival photoshoot.

It was quite comical pretending to shoot fall outfits when the temperatures were in the 70’s! #californiaweather

Accessories can instantly transition any outfit from season to season, so for that reason I chose my horse bit buckle belt, cognac riding boots, and a vintage inspired bucket style bag!

That lace detailing though!!

Most bloggers hold extravagant floral arrangements, I as a broke college student hold a baby tumbleweed I found on the side of the road 😉 amberr-85amberr-86

Despite the lack of the color green out here, the desert does have a beauty of its own especially those amazing sunsets and sunrises!

Whenever a company decides to collaborate with ModestlyHot it is always a plus when they are as much faith based as well as fashion based. That is why I decided to accept and support Hello Grace! They make quality, well designed  products inspired by the goodness of God’s grace! With all the negative publicity on graphic tee shirts nowadays, we need to spread the positive message and be the light and salt of the earth this world needs!

Verse of the Day: Matthew 5:13-16 {More like passage of the day but it’s all so good!}

13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

14Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
