Happy Friday Everyone!!

Boy what a week!! I mean I am physically exhausted yet ready to roll for next week!

I am SO excited for summer because I can finally wear my stash of nautical themed clothing again!!!

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!

So let’s talk about this skirt!! It’s AMAZING!!!

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!

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

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!

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_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

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

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

Shopping for Modest Clothes

Happy Friday Everyone!                                                                                                         image

 

I wanted to write this post because I always get emails and comments on Instagram about where do I buy my modest clothes? Believe me I know the difficulty of finding trendy but modest clothes these days! But I do have some stores and websites I can rely on for inexpensive modest clothing! Living in Utah I have been learning that there are alot of local modest shops all around the state! Im going to share with you (in no particular order) my no fail shops for finding modest clothes! (cute and trendy too by the way.)

1. Sexy Modest Boutique image

Im pretty sure all of you have heard of them! They have amazing skirts and I love how they emphazise that you can look great but modest as well! This shop is great for finding all things modest! They were my first ever introduction to modest clothing! I found them while I was desperately searching for an inexpensive skirt extender and out popped their website and I’ve been hooked ever since! They always have great sales and new arrivals!                                                    image

 

2. Very Jane                                                                                                                                  image

Oh how I love Veryjane! It is a daily boutique deal website that has amazing deals on modest clothing especially skirts! I think I’m addicted because I always end up buying something everyday! There is always something new everyday and cheap too! Their skirts are usually $10-$12 when they’re normally $30! Most of my favorite clothes are from Very Jane! The only con is that their clothing is on a first come, first serve basis! I always check their website around midnight since that is when they put new items up!                                                                 image

 

3. P. Kid Chicks Shop                                                                                                                  image

First of all I have to say that their sense of fashion is on point! I love their IG account! Their shop is equally amazing! Steph and Nicole are Pastor’s Kids (hence their name ”P. Kid. Chicks”) that are dedicated to inspire young girls to dress modestly. They have gorgeous modest skirts that are affordable as well!

 

4. Windsor Store 

Windsor is kind of like Forever 21 but better! They sell gorgeous formal dresses! While not everything in their website is modest, their midi skirts, however are. Their skirts are so unique!

5. Modest Closet                                                                                                                            image

Modest Closet is one of my favorites for afforadable modest clothing! I love their pencil skirts!! They have the best fit on me! If you are on a budget then this is the place to shop. I totally reccommend the Piper Pencil skirts, definitely a staple piece in my wardrobe.

I could go on and on but I don’t want to over do it so I’m going to stop here. I may do like a part 2 or something later! 🙂  Work awaits me now.

Day to Night Outfit

Hot pink, leather, and studs are whats happening in today’s outfit. I love this hot pink maxi skirt paired up with my favorite metal belt.

From Day to Night

From Day to Night

For daytime I wore this super bright maxi skirt with a basic white tee. (pretty casual but still cute.)  Now for night time I added one of my all time favorite Poshmark finds which is this studded leather jacket! I didn’t even bother wearing heels since you won’t be able to see them anyways. Now can we just talk about how bright this maxi skirt is?! I love it!Its very soft and definitely one of the better quality maxi skirts I own.                                                                                                      What I found very flattering is the fit,most maxi skirts have a tendency to just ‘stick’ to my thighs really awkwardly,but this skirt is tight on my waist and flares out and I love that! (Fit and flare is the silhouette that works best with my body.) This outfit was the most comfortable thing I have worn in a while! (Gotta love maxi skirts!) I feel like I put all of my favorite clothing pieces into one outfit, like no joke I loove this skirt and the jacket and the belt and even the white t-shirt! 20140403-135913.jpg

Leopard is a Neutral…

”As far as I’m concerned leopard is a neutral.” So true! 20140328-134409.jpg

I’m very particular when it comes to leopard print. It can’t be too orange/yellow, or the leopard spots too big or small. I also find that leopard print can go either way, it can look very chic and sexy or very tacky and cheap.(and we certainly do not want that!)

So I’m always on the hunt for that ”expensive looking” leopard print top, and I finally found it on Poshmark! By the way if you do not have the Poshmark app you need to get it asap! It’s exactly like Ebay but for clothes! My skirt is from Modest Closet! I adore this skirt! Its seriously the perfect pencil skirt and so affordable! I do recommend to get a size up, I’m normally a small but I got a size Medium and it fits perfectly! Leopard is a neutral since you can combine so many different colors with it. (ex: red and leopard, pink and leopard,blue and leopard, mint and leopard,etc.)                                                                                                                   20140328-140816.jpg

Princess skirt?

Sooo this outfit post is like a week overdue but no biggie right? (Jk I’m trying really hard to post at least once a week!)
Let’s talk tulle!! When I first saw this on poppyanddot website I immediately ordered it after a fellow blogger (Hi Amy!) on Instagram recommended it to me. It was very inexpensive, especially since it is a 5 layer tulle skirt. I was contemplating on buying one that cost well over $70, so naturally I jumped on the bandwagon when it was on sale for $15!

I just couldn't say no to the price

I just couldn’t say no to the price

It came super quick almost next day shipping! I’m not gunna lie i was a bit disappointed when I opened it up it was wayyy too poofy! (No duh what was I expecting with five layers of tulle?!) So I put off wearing it since it made my hips look huge! Lol!
But I decided to finally wear it when I found some “pinspiration” and recreated it.

A lil midnight scrolling on Pinterest and I found this cute outfit!

Everywhere I went people were complimenting my outfit. I guess I just had to find the right top 20140322-223332.jpg  (which by the way it’s my new favorite!!)

Obsessed with this sheer sweetheart polka dot top!

It’s a sheer polka dot top from H&M which I believe is still available in stores now and my tulle skirt is from Poppy and Dot.
