I cannot commence to explain why this is one of my favorite trends of all time!

The color navy this year has by far been my favorite color! (Sorry pink!) It is so classy and elegant, and the color combinations with navy are endless! Navy is the new black!

I recently became  Taralynn’s Boutique new clothing representative! I am so grateful about this opportunity to be part of their team of representatives!

They recently sent me this GORGEOUS red striped midi skirt to review for you guys!

I already own their classic black and white striped midi skirt (still a fav!) and was dying to acquire a red and white one especially for a nautical inspired outfit!

This beautiful midi skirt is completely modest, has perfect pleats, and is made to last!

My outfit inspiration came from Pinterest from Rachel Parcell , whose style I adore!! I had the pleasure of meeting her and her sister Emily Jackson for the first time last year at the Sperry Event! She truly has a sweet spirit along with an amazing sense of style! (Lol don’t mind my Disney inspired outfit! I had a photoshoot that day and had no time to change!)

I realize this could be a great 4th of July outfit, but I couldn’t wait any longer to wear it!

My top was purchased second hand from Poshmark in a size XS, originally from Cynthia Rowley!

This top has a classy anchor print all over it, with three anchor printed buttons on the shoulders for a nice nautical detail!

And a white teardrop statement necklace to top it all off!

Navy, red, white, cognac, and anchors complete this preppy nautical outfit!

I would highly suggest to invest in these striped midi skirts from Taralynn’s Boutique!

You will have so many endless combinations with these skirts and the best part is that they are made with quality to last!

Well that time has come darlings where I have to say goodbye for now, but will be back tomorrow with more modest outfit inspirations for you girls!

God Bless!

XOXO,

Ashley Amber

To give this outfit a more summer “boho” vibe I tied my shirt at my waist and double knotted it! Perfect for a hot summer day!

Modest in Red, White & Blue! 4th of July Outfits Look Book!

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!

I wrote it all in caps so you could feel the excitement I have !!

I am so excited for tomorrow because its one of my favorite holidays ever!!! 4th of July of course!!

IMG_2979

I believe out of all colors I have the most of is red, white and navy blue!

Its such a classic, timeless color combination that will always look refined and classy!

Another thing that most of you have noticed is that I LOVE ANCHORS!!!

AAAH!

So let’s get on to the lookbook!

For look #1 I paired up my classic chambray denim shirt with my new current favorite anchor print skater skirt!!

A sweet lady on Instagram actually makes these fun skirts!!

IMG_2948

IMG_2951

For my shoes I didn’t want to pair up this look with the obvious color red, but i wanted to do some pattern mixing!

So navy and white striped flats it was! I got these adorable striped flats from Jane.com! I got them for a steal of just $6!!

IMG_2947

IMG_2949

IMG_3009

Now onto the next look! I was out on a photoshoot with my lovely friend Mildred at City Creek (we got sidetracked by cute clothes lol)  and saw that The Limited was having a clearance sale on most of their pencil skirts! i immediately grabbed this gorgeous red and navy lace pencil skirt and it was a perfect fit! I wore my chambray shirt once again and some classy nude Louboutins.

IMG_2954

IMG_2952

This is a great look for the office while still being patriotic and festive!

IMG_2957

For my last look I wore my chevron midi skirt paired up with my .. yep you guessed it! My Anchor top!

LOL! This top I just HAD to get even though I probably had a similar one purchased last year from Rue!

But come on now, does this not resemble J.Crew?! and for just $7!

IMG_2983

IMG_2975

IMG_2976

I love how this outfit just works despite being very different patterns!

I kept my shoes neutral since there was alot going on!

IMG_2985-0

IMG_2978

Look #4 or is it look #3?! I forget and am too lazy to scroll back up to check lol!

I think this is my most repeated outfit that I have yet to photograph til today! LOL

I would always wear this same exact outfit and somehow something would always pop up that I couldn’t get a picture posted!!

I love this skirt i bought from Downeast Basics! The Picnic Skirt was the cutest skirt I have ever seen!

IMG_2986

There’s nothing more American than a classic Coke!

IMG_2995

Random fact of the day: Even though I was dying to chug down this delicious coke (plus it was really hot out) I can’t drink soda since the carbonation makes me ill. But on the bright side it makes an adorable prop!

IMG_2990

IMG_2987

IMG_2997

I once again tied up my chambray shirt to give it a fun vibe!

IMG_2991

Well I hope you didn’t mind the extremely long post!

Have a safe and Happy Fourth of July!!!

God Bless You!

XOXO,

Ashley

Modest Nautical Summer Outfit!

Happy Thursday Girlies!!

I hope you all had an amazing week so far!! I have been quite tired but I always look forward blog posts! I’m enjoying typing up this post outside on the patio but I might have to move my blog writing indoors since I can hear some thunder in the midst! (Nooo why?!)

Today’s post is all about……

ANCHORS!!!!

IMG_2514                           OH My! The obsession has struck again!!

I bought this gorgeous anchor print maxi skirt from Jane a couple of weeks ago and I finally got it in the mail 2 days ago!!

IMG_2509                           I couldn’t wait to wear it! Its perfect for those hot summer days! I love how modest and comfy this skirt is!

Literally like jammies!

I wore my infamous chambray shirt from DownEast Basics and a white teardrop necklace!

I love tieing my shirts in a knot when wearing maxi skirts because I love the shape it gives me! Plus it gives a more ”nautical” summer vibe!
IMG_2505

IMG_2504                     Well the rain is falling on my laptop which means its time to wrap it up!

(Not gunna lie, being outside in thunder makes me paranoid that I might get struck by lightning lol)

I may or may not have a shopping haul post coming soon 😉 (As in manana!)

Outfit Details:

Anchor Print Maxi Skirt: Very Jane

Chambray Shirt: Downeast Basics

Anchor Sandals: Claire’s

God Bless You!!

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!

I wanted to share this skirt with three of you girlies so let’s have a quick giveaway shall we?!!

There will be 3 winners!!

Here’s how to Enter:

1. Follow ModestlyHot Blog (Follow Button is on the right side of the page!)

2.Follow Debbie’s Closet on Instagram: @Debbiescloset

Winners will be announced on Sunday!!
