I’d be lying if I didnt say that the weather often inspires my outfit for the day! ย So you can usually tell what kind of weather we’re having by just looking at my outfit! Lol

IMG_3863

Why yes it was a gorgeous sunny day and I had just the right dress ! ๐Ÿ˜

Theres nothing happier than lemon print dresses!!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿ‹

For the longest time ever I was coveting a lemon print dress! Theres just something so vintage yet so fun about these types of prints!

Apparently when life gives Banana Republic lemons they make a lemon print dress and a gorgeous one at that too!

Can you say yellow?! ๐Ÿ˜œ Nothing was held back on this outfit! Being a total pink kinda girl I gotta say that this year my closet has been filled with yellow! ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›

“Fruit Fashion” as I like to call it has been all the rage this summer season! Pineapples, lemons and strawberry prints are making a statement in the fashion world. Now I know what you’re thinking,” only a five year old or a crazy kindergarten teacher would wear this!” Uh uh! This can totally be worn as an everyday casual outfit! Fruit prints are not only ADORABLE but can look real classy and chic!

IMG_3853

This dress would also look great paired up with a forest green cardigan and nude pumps!

The fit on this dress is awesome and so comfortable! Trust me finding a dress that is the perfect length especially for a petite girl is like finding a needle in a haystack!

Chic Leopard Midi Skirt Outfit!! Modest Ways to Style Leopard!

Happy Monday Everyone!!

I woke up this morning to a VERY happy mail day!! New shipments came in for my boutique!! AAH!! It’s always so exciting getting new skirts for you girlies!! (Christmas in April!)

I could not wait any longer and I had to try on this new arrival!!

Every girl needs to have at least one leopard print skirt in her wardrobe and this one is pretty amazing!!

IMG_1340

As soon as I looked at the skirt I knew I wanted to pair it up with black! I wanted this look to be chic, not very colorful, but still make a statement!

IMG_1326

I wore a simple chambray button up shirt with a black rosette necklace purchased from VeryJane!ย 

IMG_1335ย I simply can not get over how many of my favorite things are in this skirt!! I mean its pleated, its midi length, its comfortable and of course its a chic leopard print!

Definitely made my Monday a whole lot better!

IMG_1324ย Let’s talk about these shoes for a second!!! One of the lovely girls I follow on Instagram Alee, from Obsession Expression blog totally made me buy these amazing bow strap heels!! Hers were a gorgeous nude color but they only had black available at Go Jane!

I got a little shoe crazy since they were having a 60% OFF sale and plus I used an online coupon code from Retail Me Not!

IMG_1339

To say I am obsessed with these shoes is an understatement!

IMG_1341

Bows, straps and black?! Um Yes please!

Modest Nautical Outfits LookBook!!

Happy Saturday Girlies!!

Crazy to think that just two days ago I was wearing a long coat with boots and now I’m wearing a short sleeve dress with sandals?!

Seriously someone needs to give Utah a calendar!

But with that being said, I’m so excited to finally bring out all my nautical themed clothing for the summer!

IMG_1273

I am so excited to start the Modest Nautical Outfit LookBook!!

By now it’s no secret that I AM OBSESSED WITH ANCHORS! lol! I can’t tell you how many times I walk into a store and buy EVERY SINGLE ITEM that has an anchor print! I blame J.Crew to be honest lol!

I’m not quite sure how this obsession started but I’m so glad it did! (Not sure my wallet loves it as much though !)

I just looove how classy and preppy nautical themed outfits look! My love for the color navy has definitely grown because of the nautical ย trend!

For today’s outfit I wanted something very casual and comfortable!

IMG_1284

I always lay out my outfits before wearing them, it just helps me visualize them and plus they make cute outfit pics!

IMG_1276

I am in love with this anchor t-shirt dress!! It is originally from Old Navy but I scored it on Poshmark for just $8!!

IMG_1298

I had asked the girl selling her anchor dress how tall she was to get an idea of how long it would be on me! (posh tip by the way!) She was a bit taller than me (no surprise there lol) so I’d figured it would be a bit above my knee on me!

I tried it on and it hit right at my knee which was fine by me but I felt as it needed something feminine at the bottom to add some texture to the dress! I added my white lace skirt extender and I instantly felt more comfortable in my outfit! You know how sometimes you have to be careful with some dresses like, sitting a certain way or making sure you don’t bend over? That’s kinda how this dress felt before I added the skirt extender, but with the skirt extender I felt as I could run, sit, and stand confidently that I wouldn’t have any wardrobe malfunctions lol!

IMG_1281

IMG_1286

For my accessories I added this white teardrop necklace from the ”What A Woman Wants Expo” for just $3! My belt is from Forever 21 for also just $3! Best $3 I’ve ever spent considering how often I wear it! Of course this is a nautical lookbook so it would be a crime not to wear my FAVORITE sandals EVER!! These anchor sandals are just .,….. i cant even. …!!! Enough said!

lol!

IMG_1288

For my hair I wanted subtle waves like if I was swimming all day on the beach (wishful thinking!) I recently have been getting questions on how I get my hair wavy. All I do is use my NuMe curling wand in the medium sized barrel and before releasing the curl I let it cool in my hand for a couple of seconds to set and I softly tug on the curl to form a wave! It lasts all day! No mousse or hairspray is required!

IMG_1287ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  Let’s talk about this bag for a second!! I am not the biggest fan of the color brown but cognac is the exception! This little bag carries sooo much its ridiculous! I love how it has zippers on the sides and it kind of resembles the Philip Lim bag that is way more expensive than this little guy! I believe I only paid about $25 for it at my local Ross!

IMG_1293

I hope you enjoyed this nautical outfit! Trust me there are way more nautical outfits to come!

Til Next Time

XOXO,

Ashley
