Pink Modest Floral Dress Featuring Indigo & Sage + GIVEAWAY!!!

Ready, Set? Floral!

If you have been following me for even a short period of time, you know my favorite kind of print (besides anchor print) is a feminine floral!

This dress is especially one of my favorites because the dress resembles that of an artist sketching out a flawless floral scenery with watercolors!

The detail of the brush strokes and complimentary colors make this floral dress unique!

Indigo and Sage is an online boutique based in Utah (Yeah home town pride!)  and asked me to review and style this dress for you guys! Of course I accepted!

On a side note can I just express how grateful I am to be able to share my beliefs and ideas on such a creative platform as this? I am truly blessed to call you all my brothers and sisters in Christ, and the amount of encouragement you give me daily is something I genuinely appreciate!

I added to this dress my Peek A Boo Chic  Cream crochet layering slip to add a frill to the already girly print! Plus it is better to be safe than sorry when it comes to modesty!

I also added my infamous GoJane Hot Pink studded heels  and a five strand pearl necklace for even more fancy schmacy details!

Now looking at the elements of this outfit I guess you could categorize it as a “modern Grandma” revamp inspired outfit! Crochet, lace, floral and pearls in a modern yet still modest outfit that I’m sure Grandma would approve!

 

Oh you guys I cannot wait to share something spectacular that happened this week!

And onto today’s blog post which coincidentally is also pink!

Oh my! Pink, floral, modest and oh so comfortable? This dress is all of the above and so easy to move in!  This gorgeous dress is from  Winsome Sash Boutique, a clothing boutique that delivers a fusion of polished sophistication and elegance combined with classic modesty.

I adore the color scheme of this dress, the pink, brown and mauve color palette is so perfect for spring and summer.

Now, let’s talk about the length of this maxi dress, I am a shortie (5’3 to be exact) and this dress is very long, longer than most maxi dresses so I would definitely recommend wearing some tall heels with this dress!

Surprisingly, I did not feel the need to wear anymore accessories beside my go-to cognac wavy band belt!

P.S. Check out how long my nails grew! A blog post on what has been working to grow out my nails is coming soon!

You would think that this long sleeved dress would be too hot to wear in the heat of the day, but actually I noticed that because of the lightweight material it is made out of it’s actually quite a breathable dress!

I am so grateful for this past week that we were able to reach 28K followers! And it is honestly crazy to think that this journey started with a 17 year old girl who was so camera shy, and  hid when people busted out a camera. lol! It’s been a great journey full of learning and interacting with you girls who know the struggle of choosing to live a life that is pleasing to God even when the world is constantly opposing it. I have found so much encouragement and joy by your sweet comments, emails and collaborations! THANK YOU! Continue to grow in Christ and never be ashamed of promoting modesty, this world truly needs your “salted light”!

Matthew 5:13-16(KJV)

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.

14 Ye 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.

God Bless,

Ashley Amber

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

Hello lovelies!!😍💕 

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!😍💕💕 

  It’s been such a gorgeous past few days here in Lancaster🙌🏻🌻 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!💨 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!🙆🏻  But I do enjoy a challenge I must say! #bringitlancasterwinds 💪🏻💨 

  
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!!😍💕💙 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.💣💣💣 

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! 📱💳💰 

GENUIS!

Happy 🍟day Lovelies!!

My never fail color combination of mint and pink strikes again on a casual Friday!

Mint and pink brings me nothing but pure joy when I see it paired up together! Maybe because it reminds me of a vintage 1950s Ice Cream Shop! 🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦

A good tip that always works for me when I have a skirt with a busy print like this one is to pick one color from the skirt and splash it on your top!
For example, this skirt can be worn with lavender, yellow, forest green, white and hot pink since they are all found in this skirt!
This skirt is from an adorable Instagram Shop Florence Adams Store!

The Makeup Eraser Review

IMG_0867                                                                                                                       Happy Monday Girlies!!

I’m so excited to share with you my wallet’s new best friend lol! Drumroll Please!

The Makeup Eraser!! Oh my goodness girls I have been trying out this cute little thing for the past 2 months and I have to say that I am in love!!

Let me back up and explain why I purchased it in the first place.

IMG_0862

Um no, I did not buy it because it was shaped like a huge PINK eraser!

IMG_0866

Hahha funny story actually, I did.

With that being said, I wasn’t really expecting it to work that well but i thought , hey it’ll look adorable just sitting on my vanity to wipe my brushes at least.

But no seriously it’s AMAZING!!!! It supposes to remove your ENTIRE face of makeup with just H20. (What kind of witchcraft is this?!)

I thought if this truly works, I can definitely save a bunch of money on makeup wipes/makeup remover.

So basically you wet the pink towel that is provided inside the packaging and there are two types of textures on both sides.

One side is a bit more abrasive and is meant to exfoliate your skin.

The other side is the actual ”makeup erasing” side.

I tried both sides and I have to say I just use the exfoliating side now, because I feel like it removes more makeup than the softer side. I only use the softer side to remove my eye makeup! (So long cat-eye that I spent wayyy to much time on lol)

IMG_0859

Now my concern was if the stains were going to come out?! I have used small towels to remove my makeup before and it was a horrifying experience. Not only did it make my face red and irritated, but the stains would not wash out!

Thankfully my skin felt so SQUEAKY CLEAN and soft after washing my face with it.  I threw it in the washing machine and VOILA! It was that pretty pink once again!

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.
