πŸ’•Mint, Pink &Polkadots! +GIVEAWAY from Let’s Be Modest Shop!πŸ’•

Hello lovelies!!πŸ˜πŸ’• 

Happy  Saturday to you! 

I’m so excited to share today’s outfit post and there’s also going to be a giveaway so stay tuned til the end! 

    

I was feeling a abut colorful today and went for my favorite color combo; pink and mint!πŸ˜πŸ’•πŸ’• 

  It’s been such a gorgeous past few days here in LancasterπŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸŒ» The weather is cooling down, but it still feels like summer! I’m pretty used to cold weather back home in Utah  so when people say it’s “cold”here and it’s only 70 degrees I can’t help but be grateful that’s their coldest temp around here ! ⛄️❄️    
I will say this though the winds are fierce!πŸ’¨ When I first came here I thought it was going to be difficult to be modest because of the heat, but actually the Lancaster winds make modesty 100x difficult ESPECIALLY if you like to wear full A-line  skirts!πŸ™†πŸ»  But I do enjoy a challenge I must say! #bringitlancasterwinds πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ’¨ 

  
I did a little subtle pattern mixing today because it’s Saturday and it just feels right! LOL 

I adore a gorgeous quatrefoil print!! I finally found what my scarfs print was called!! Haha! One day at JoAnn’s I was trying to explain to the fabric lady that this fabric was really popular and had a funky four square design! (Pretty clear huh?) She looked at me with that blank stare people give you when they think you’ve completely lost your mind! 

After that interesting fabric hunt fail I was more determined than ever to find the name of that design so I did a little Google image search with the fabric and bam! Here is the proper  definition: 

Quatrefoil:

an ornamental design of four lobes or leaves as used in architectural tracery, resembling a flower or four-leaf clover. 

Well you learn something new everyday! 

Let’s talk about this scarf for a second!!πŸ˜πŸ’•πŸ’™ Not only is it a gorgeous quatrefoil print with a stunning mint color, BUT it has a secret compartment zipper where you can stash your cash, card or lipgloss!😱 

   
 Mind. blown.πŸ’£πŸ’£πŸ’£ 

This scarf is perfect for a day like this because when you’re out soulwinning (door knocking inviting people to church!) you need to have your hands free! I will definitely be storing my scan card,iPhone and some cash! πŸ“±πŸ’³πŸ’° 

GENUIS! 

This cute scarf will be part of today’s giveaway thanks to Let’s Be Modest Shop!!

πŸ‚πŸπŸŒ»Fall Florals!πŸŒ»πŸπŸ‚ Styling a Fringe Skirt!Β 

Hello and Happy Wednesday !! 

Well long time no post!! I’ve definitely missed you all! 

For those of you who don’t know I barely got settled into my new “home” here at West Coast Baptist College! 

I am so excited and exhausted but it’s been such an awesome experience thus far!

   
 
Don’t get me wrong I do miss the gorgeous mountains of Utah but the sunsets are are pretty amazing too! 

So for today’s outfit is totally about transitioning summer trends into the fall season! 

 

It’s completely not fall yet but I wanted a little essence of summer in my outfit and this floral shirt from Poshmark fit in perfectly! 

I dunno about you but this skirt is a must have for fall!! It’s fringe and the color is screaming to be worn all month long! (It’s been on major repeat!πŸ˜‰) 

   

 Floral and fringe is definitely a fall favorite right now! πŸ‚πŸŒ»πŸ it’s an easy way to transition from summer to fall! 

   

Cognac is becoming one of my favorite colors of all time! It falls into the category of navy I believe! 

It’s so rustic yet chic! 

I’ve been wearing these Cognac wedges from Justfab for the past outfits because 

(A) They’re comfy 

(B) They’re comfy 

And (c) they’re comfy πŸ˜‰ 

  
The movement of this skirt is so awesome and makes wearing it fun to twirl  around in lol!

It was only $17 from She Inside! Plus if you could get a 30% OFF online code that would make this deal even sweeter!  
Well that wraps up today’s post and now I got to get ready from Wednesday Night service! 

I’ll try to squeeze in as many blog posts as I can, but If you don’t hear from me just know that it’s probably because I’m somewhere in the library pulling out my hair writing an essay ! lol!

God Bless !! 

  

Modest Style Diaries: Classic Striped Ball Gown Skirt! Featuring My Shop!

Hello Friends!!

Have you ever had those days where you just want a little pick me up?! For me an instant pick me up is a classic matte red lip, especially for ”tired skin” days!

IMG_4643

I am so pleased and excited to announce the re-open of my shop!! And I have some pretty exciting arrivals in store, one of the them including this skirt!

IMG_4646

Hello there Gorgeous!! ❀

You all know how much I LOVE ball gown princess skirts! They’re elegant, classy and so chic, and this one happens to be from my shop; Shop ModestlyHot!

IMG_4651

IMG_4662

As I was styling the skirt I wanted to give it a New York meets Retro feel to it.

I wore my J.Crew Button up Shirt with a huge red vintage belt to cinch in my waist! To add to the glamour I wore my ”one size fits all” necklace! The reason why I say that is because that this necklace from Purple PeridotΒ goes with every single outfit! It’s like the little black dress for jewelry!

IMG_4648

IMG_4665

Hair of the Day:Β I guess I could tell you that wearing an ultra chic top bun was part of the planned outfit, but ima keep it real with y’all and say that I just didn’t want to deal with my curling iron and have weak arms at the end of it quite honestly! #longhairproblems

Polka Dots and Denim! Featuring Shabby Apple!

Happy Sunday Everyone!!!

It was such a gorgeous day here in Utah, it was bright and sunny but a bit chilly! (Deceiving weather really!)

Remember that mystery item I was telling you all that I was going to pick up?!

Um…well here it is!

IMG_2212

MY DREAM SKIRT!! AAH! Ladies I cannot tell you how long this skirt has been on my wishlist!

#skirtgoals

In addition to this skirt I got more Shabby Apple goodies I cannot wait to share with you!

Okay this skirt is probably in my top 3 most loved skirts I own!

IMG_2215

I remember seeing this skirt all over Pinterest and thinking to myself, ” I will have that skirt in my closet!”

That’s one thing about me, when I want something, you better believe I am going to get it! LOL Whether I have to go to the ends of the world and back, I always try and make it work! Even when I was little I have been this way!

hahaha a quick little story that comes to mind is that when I was in kindergarten I wanted to buy everyone gifts for Christmas and I was not willing to buy them with my parent’s money (I mean it’s not a gift if they end up buying it right?..)

So I came up with a fabulous idea of drawing kitty cat drawings and selling them for a profit. (Yes, I til this day say kitty cat don’t judge lol)

I went around school selling these cat drawings for $1 each and was able to buy my parents and brother gifts, weeks before Christmas! I still remember how shocked my parents were in finding out that I had sold cat drawings to buy gifts for them! LOL

IMG_2217

I totally recommend this skirt for numerous reasons!

1. To feel like a Princess

2. The material is such nice quality!

3. To feel like a Princess

and

4. To feel like a Princess

I feel like that sums it all up!

IMG_2214

While this skirt is pretty awesome in itself finding a top to go along with it was a challenge!

I tried countless number of tops with this skirt! I mean I went through my entire closet and they just didn’t see right!

So I put to practice my famous last words;…”When in doubt; Wear CHAMBRAY!”

Yes chambray is always the answer!

IMG_2222

IMG_2219

IMG_2223

This skirt is actually very fluffy and poofy all on its own but I wanted even MORE poof to the skirt so I added a tulle skirt underneath to give it some more lift!

IMG_2227

IMG_2226

For my accessories I wanted it to be very glamorous so I added my Crystal Cluster Necklace and some vintage crystal earrings!

IMG_2229

IMG_2224

I couldn’t help but twirl and spin around in my Waltzing Matilda Skirt!!

Way to go Shabby Apple! You definitely won me over with this cute little number!

I hope you all have a fabulous week and I am excited to chat with you gorgeous gals again!

XOXO,

Ashley

Easy Fruit of the Spirit Kids Craft! Sunday School Crafts!

Happy Monday Everyone!!

Even though this is being put together Sunday night with my mint julep face mask on (which is ahhmazing btw!) as I’m catching up on some 19 Kids and Counting episodes!

My face mask has hardened and I don’t dare to even smile! lol

IMG_2064

I thought I would share with you all the craft me and the kiddos did today in Sunday School!

I love doing crafts and having so much fun with the kids, yes we’re probably the loudest class (Sorry church members!) but I think that’s a good sign of how much of a good time we’re having while learning the Word of God!

So today’s lesson was about oranges!!

Jk! Well kinda! lol

We learned about the Fruit of the Spirit found in Galatians 5:22-23.

22Β But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23Β Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

This lesson was awesome because it covers so many great character building traits all in one lesson!

We learned about how God creates these qualities in us through his Spirit.

Each kid had a fruit assigned to them with a quality and they had to explain in their own words how they would exercise that specific quality!

(Everyone wanted to be the watermelon for some strange reason lol)

I always try to accompany a lesson with a relating craft because I remember how much fun I had doing craft time in my Sunday School!
So as I was looking for cute ideas on Pinterest I stumbled across the most awesome website; Bible Story Printables!Β They had all the resources and images ready to print and for free!

IMG_2057

I mean how cute are these?!

It then hit me to make a ”Fruit Bowl of the Spirit Craft” for the kiddos!

(Thanks Zak for the clever name lol)

All you need is:

~Paper

~Printer and Ink

~Scissors

~Hot Glue Gun

~Disposable Bowl

~Markers and Crayons

~Candy Grapes (Optional)

IMG_2059-0

Print these adorable fruit shapes here.

Click on that link for the free printable!

Next, you want to have a couple of little helpers color and cut the fruits! (So adorable seeing them try their hardest to color within the lines!)

IMG_2058-0

IMG_2060

It might be a good idea to help the younger kids with the hot glue! (Trust me I, to this day still end up burning myself! )

IMG_2061

Glue all your little fruits on the edge of the bowl and add some candy sour grapes to make it look like a legit fruit bowl!

I mean how cute and easy right?!!

I love this craft because its adorable and very affordable! Believe me it can get pretty expensive really fast making crafts for 20 kids!

I have a funny and crazy story to tell, some may say it is somewhat of a testimony.

Now, I love doing all these fun projects for the kids and just going to Michael’s and getting excited for all the fun crafting possibilities! But recently every time I purchase things for my Sunday School class , my bank automatically deposits the EXACT amount that I spent for the craft/lesson!!!! The same EXACT amount down to the pennies and all!

We have to agree that is no coincidence!

No doubt about it that we serve a Great and Mighty God!

I hope you all have happiness and exciting adventures this week!

IMG_2063

Til Next Time!!

XOXO,

Ashley!
