❤️Once upon a Polkadot… Featuring DaintyJewells Dress!❤️

Hello Lovelies!! ❤️

Happy Sunday!! What a week it has been and what a week I look forward to! Last week was full of mid-terms which I am so thankful to all those who kept me in their prayers because this girl right here was about to lose her mind trying to remember eveything in every class!

Yesterday was such a busy day as well as we helped with “Pumkins in the Park” event for the little kids! 

It was so fun helping out and seeing the kids enjoy fall games, treats and picking their own pumpkin from the pumpkin patch! 🎃 

   
 So exciting because today was Restart Sunday at Lancaster Baptist Church!! And yes that is a huge I-Phone📱 🙌🏻 

(I Call dibs on it when they take it down 😉) 

   
 For the past couple of weeks we have gone out and knocked on doors inviting everyone to Restart Sunday and it was so encouraging to see the auditorium full of new time visitors! 

  
For today’s outfit I just couldn’t wait to wear this GORGEOUS dress from Dainty Jewell’s!! 

  
In the past I have collaborated with Dainty Jewell’s and let me tell you how amazing their customer service always is! Out of all my Dainty Jewell’s dresses and skirts this one has got to be my ultimate fav!!😍 

The Central Park Dress is one of their new fall releases and it’s absolutely stunning and timeless! This dress is perfect for fall because it’s not an actual stark white but more of a softer cream/off white which make the dress 10x classier and chic!

  
The Polkadots are so spontaneous and of different sizes that make this dress unique than any other Polkadot dress out there! 

The fitted bodice and full midi skirt are right up my alley!❤️❤️❤️❤️ The “poofier” the better🙌🏻❤️😍 

This lovely dress came with a lovely matching sash but I decided I wanted to wear that look some other time and do the “glam 50’s ” look today! 

So out came my most favoritest-est-est-est-estest-est belt ever!!!😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 (Yes I could keep going on and on about this belt!) this gold metal bar belt is simply the best belt I’ve ever worn! 

Thank you Two 12 Fashion!!✨ 

  
  
For my hair  I put those granny sponge rollers on my hair the night before! This is key when doing a retro hairstyle because in the morning you’ll want to brush them out gently to form waves. After that part your hair to the side and bobby pin it behind your ear ! *Make sure to wear pretty earrings to accentuate your classic 1950s do! * 

   

   For shoe I just couldn’t resist but to wear these red bow heels from She-Inside!

   
 
 
 
For my makeup I went for a classic red lip using my favorite red lipgloss  I got from an Ipsy Bag! 

It’s so rich and a shade of deep red ! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Did I mention it’s only a lipgloss?! 

   
   
You guys I have found my new favorite blush and it’s from E.L.F! 

It’s the mellow mauve blush and it’s a soft muted dust rose! Goes with any makeup look to freshen up the skin! Plus it’s a steal at only $3!👍🏻 
  
   
    
   
   
    
   
Well that wraps up today’s post ! Hope you all have an awesome Monday! ❤️⚫️⚪️❤️ 

I also forgot to mention that this dress comes in a little girls size ! 

I could totally see this as bridesmaids/flower girl dresses! 

  
Have a great rest of your Sunday!

Xoxo,

Ashley

🍁🍂🍃Modest Fall Fashion! Polka Dots, Maroon and Midi Skirt Outfit!🍁🍂🍃

Hello Friends!!

September is finally here and I can’t believe that there are some people who are already starting their Christmas shopping!?

But then again my deadline is usually December 23rd lol! (Yes we’re those kind of Christmas shoppers :P)

So today’s post is all about the gorgeous fall colors that nature brings us each year!

IMG_4530

My outfit was completely inspired by the golds, maroons and reds of the falling leaves!

I absolutely LOVE this gold metallic midi skirt!

I truly appreciate when a skirt can be worn without any need of a skirt extender or slip!

Modest Length is crucial for all my skirts and I’m so loving that midi skirts were the trend of the season!

The pleating of this skirt is awesome and makes it much more voluminous!

Now I’ve seen yellow midi skirts before but this one has a gorgeous gold sheen over it and totally on point for fall!

My skirt is from The Klassy Girl Boutique, an affordable Modest clothing company!! Finding modest skirts is a challenge in itself but affordable as well?! Hahaha I’ll walk into a department store and find the most perfect, modest skirt ever and then I’ll flip the price tag over and see tripe digits?! Yeah I think I’ll pass heheh 😉

IMG_4526

I chose to wear my Polka Dot Utility blouse from Charlotte Russe with this golden yellow skirt because polka dots and yellow equal a happy outfit!

IMG_4525

IMG_4524

For accessories I wore my maroon colored bubble necklace from Our World Boutique!

I actually won this beauty from an Instagram giveaway they’re were hosting around this same time last year!

Totally worth checking them out for trendy and affordable necklaces!

I paired up this golden yellow skirt with my favorite cognac and gold buckle belt to keep the fall theme going on throughout the look.

Hair of the Day: I used my NuMe Curling wand with the biggest sized barrel for soft bouncy curls/waves.

I definitely recommend these curling wands!! I’ve had mine for about 2-3 years and it’s the only one that can make my curls last til the next day! They are a bit pricey but they’re always running deals on them!

Makeup of the Day: I love fall for many reasons, but its my most favorite time of the years because I get to go all vampy with my lip colors!! ❤

The one I’m currently loving is the NYX Simply Vamp Lip Cream in the shade ”She Devil’. It is the darkest of all shades but can be sheered out like I did today. The pigmentation is surreal! If you don’t sheer it out it looks like a straight up black with purple undertones, very vampy and chic!

Modest Summer Outfits! Featuring Adorn it Polkadot Skirt!!

Hello and Happy Monday!!
Hopefully the Monday blues aren’t taking a toll on you too hard:/!
For today’s outfit I’m so excited and I’m going to warn you, you may want to adjust your screens brightness because I got a little too color happy! Lol
IMG_3484.JPG
I literally got this skirt in the mail a couple of hours ago and I’m already strolling the town with it!
Lol I mean mint and polka dots? You can’t be frowning when wearing this skirt!!
I just had to get my hands on one especially since they’re on a weekly deal right now for just $17 at Adorn It Boutique! 😍

IMG_3464.JPG

IMG_3465.JPG
So since it was raining in the morning a bit I decided on wearing a yellow polkadot cardigan along with my mint skirt! Now however its much too hot for that so I just took the cardigan off and it still looks darling with just the yellow blouse!!
I love mint and yellow together! Instant Monday Pick Me Up!

IMG_3467.JPG

I was feeling a little daring and decided on wearing my neon yellow studded pumps with the skirt! Lol I definitely will be clearly visible at night that’s for sure!

IMG_3471.JPG

IMG_3470.JPG
Now for my next outfit I decided on wearing hot pink! Clearly I can’t just be satisfied with a normal color scheme🙈 It was too sunny not to be crazed with color!!😍❤️💙💚💛

Styling a Polka Dot Skirt 3 Ways! Featuring Dainty Jewells!

Hello and Happy Saturday!!
Hooray for a 3 day weekend!!😍

Let’s talk Polka dots!! I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone say they disliked polka dots!
They’re universally flattering and a timeless classic in the fashion world!
Today I will be sharing with you different ways to style a classic polkadot skirt and maybe just maybe you’ll be inspired to step outside of your comfort zone!

Let’s jump right in!!

1. Option 1: Solids
One reason we all love the polkadot print is because we can pair them up with virtually any color!!
For a safe and easy look, try a solid colored blouse on top of your black and white polka dot skirt! Totally get your colored shirts from Ross they’re always so inexpensive and you can purchase a bunch for under $30!

Have fun with the endless color choices! Red,Cobalt,Hot Pink,Yellow Black etc…
On the “Fashion Risk Meter” this look is at a comfortable 1! Great for beginners and everyone really!

IMG_3210.PNG
2. Option 2: Stripes
Now we’re starting to get a little more daring with some pattern mixing!
Stripes and Polkadots work well in this outfit because they both have something in common: the colors black and white.
When pattern mixing you want to find a unifying theme! Also make sure that the stripes are smaller print than the polkadots and you’re ready to go!
On the “Fashion Risk Meter” this one ranks a 5! Perfect for pattern mixing beginners to step out of their comfort zone a tad bit!

IMG_3198.JPG

IMG_3199.JPG

IMG_3200.JPG
3. Option 3: Floral

Now I know what you’re thinking
“Floral and polkadots?!? Did a 5 year old dress you?”
Haha I assure you that it can work when done properly!
What you need to remember that a polkadot skirt is considered as a “neutral”, thus allowing you to pair it up with something colorful and fun!
To avoid looking like you dressed yourself in the dark lol the floral print MUST be smaller size print than the polkadot or vice versa!
If you pair the patterns up with the same size print then you will achieve a non harmonious outfit that in all honesty looks a bit “off”. (I think you know what I mean 🙂

IMG_3180.JPG

IMG_3181.JPG

IMG_3182.JPG

IMG_3187.JPG

IMG_3186.JPG

IMG_3184.JPG
On the “Fashion Risk Meter” this one definitely is a solid 10!
Trust me It took me a while to get used to pattern mixing but remember to start small!
Do one pattern mixing at a time until you get comfortable with more!
Before you know you’ll be mixing all sorts of pattern and textures!
Well that wraps up today’s post!
I have inserted a direct link to my polkadot pencil skirt:
Dainty Jewell’s Polka Dot Skirt

God Bless You
And have a terrific Sunday Service tomorrow!
Xoxo,

💛❤️Disney Fashion! Easy Mickey Mouse Outfit💛❤️

Hello and Happy Friday Eve!💛❤️
Today’s outfit is one of my favorite lookbooks to do which is Disney Fashion!!
There just something so magical about dressing up like your favorite character!
Peek a boo!! I just couldn’t resist! Hehe!
IMG_3074.JPG
This is my second Mickey Mouse outfit recreation and I thought since i got a new red shirt I could easily do more Disney Looks! Including this one!

IMG_3086.PNG
Mickey Mouse is probably one of the easiest Disney outfits to recreate since practically any store sells polkadots!!

IMG_3068.JPG

IMG_3067.JPG

IMG_3066.JPG
I can’t tell you guys how OBSESSED I am with my Taralynn’s Boutique Skirt !
Ugh it’s so perfect and the material is such nice quality with a nice weight to it!( I prefer skirts made with heavier materials)

IMG_3077.JPG

IMG_3078.JPG

IMG_3076.JPG
Now a couple of weeks ago I was at Forever21 and saw these amazing Minnie Mouse / Mickey Mouse headbands for just $3!! There was a black polkadot one and a white one and of course I had to snag them both!
I actually wear them every morning when applying my makeup to get all the hair out of my face!
Great for face masks at night too!

IMG_3080.JPG
I definitely recommend buying solid colored tops at Ross! They’re so cheap and a must have in my closet!!💛👍
I scored this gorgeous red blouse for just $8!

IMG_3063.JPG

IMG_3088.JPG
Let’s talk handbags for a second!!😍
I was shopping at my local mall and there’s a store called the B.O.Y. Store (doesn’t make sense since they sell all cutesty and girly things)
And I stumbled across this gem of a bag!!
I mean come on!! All my weaknesses designed into one cute satchel!!
Bows, old fashioned closures, patent, and a structured body?!?

IMG_3077-0.JPG

IMG_3057.JPG
I’m definitely contemplating on purchasing the red one!! EEK😍❤️

Well that wraps up today’s #disneystyle

Any more Disney inspired looks/suggestions? let me know!!👍
Til Next Time
God Bless You!

IMG_2593

Funny story about my Minnie Mouse headband I got today!

I was at the mall grabbing something to eat (and shopping for the giveaway ;)) but I was looking for a red bow or Mickey Mouse ears ! I never go into Payless but I thought ”why not”!

I finally found the Minnie Mouse headband and on final clearance! !!(Like seriously it was a steal!)

The cashier asked me if I was purchasing it for my daughter and I admitted to her that it was actually for me! LOL

She said that the store had only brought 2 headbands since Christmas time and only sold one from that time! (we’re in June! lol)

I told her it was just meant for me then ! LOL
