Fun Fact #1: Why yes I did indeed climb these rocks with 5 inch heels πŸ˜‰ Had my friend (photographer) Mildred scared to death!Β 

Disclaimer: Pretty please do not try this at home! It was not a safe place to be hiking with heels, but a blogger has to get her Pocahontas shots!

DIY Pocahontas Costume Essentials also known as the Pocahontas Starter Kit πŸ˜‰

Here’s what you will need:

  1. Brown Fringe Skirt
  2. White Top
  3. Straightened Hair
  4. A chunky tribal turquoise necklace
  5. Brown Matte Lipstick (I used the Essence Matte Lip Liner in Soft berry! $2)

I finally found the PERFECT and MODEST fringe skirt on Poshmark!! No slip needed!

Usually with a fringe skirt the fringe would not be full enough to be modest, however this one not only was a lined skirt, but the fringe was full of beautiful movement!

Oh did I mention that it was only $9?!

img_3426 (1)

Now that’s what I call a fringe skirt! Cannot believe this was a skirt originally from Forever 21! All you Poshmarkers go ahead and follow J’s Closet on Poshmark! Incredibly fast shipping and beautiful clothes! img_3425 (1)

A necklace that makes a statement! Mirina Collections sent me this STUNNING turquoise tribal inspired famous necklace! By far one of my favorites! Where Tribal meets Glamour!Β img_3332 (1)img_3421 (1)img_3435 (1)

Fun Fact #3: Shoes and Purse are brought you by Target: Expect more, Pay Less, (a lot less πŸ˜‰

FUN FACT #5:Β Amanda from Aesthically You is the best at Eyelash Extensions in Utah!

I am not just saying that! She truly is very gentle yet effective at her job! My eyelashes can look good as soon as I wake up! What I liked the most about them was the amount of curl they had and they were not heavy at all!

Meet My City Monday: Salt Lake City Eva’s Bakery & Kate Middleton Inspired Outfits!

img_4572

It’s that time again for another installment of “Meet My City Monday!” This week I will be featuring the cutest little bakery, Eva’s Bakery in downtown SLC!

slide1slide3

Arriving There: Eva’s Bakery in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City on Main street! Getting there is super simple even without the help of Google maps! You definitely will not miss it! The bakery stands out because it is a gorgeous royal blue with French decor!

Know Before You Go:Β Parking will most likely be on the curb of the busy street on Main, however there is usually a spot available depending on what time of day you go. If not, be prepared to park either at City Creek park or further down the street.

It is no secret that one of my favorite fashion icons hands down is the elegant Kate Middleton which today’s outfits were all inspired by her keen and elegant sense of fashion!

Look #1: Regal in Royal BlueΒ 

img_4739

img_4735-1img_4732-1img_4733img_4734img_4738-1

This beautiful white and royal blue midi skirt {with pockets btw!} reminds me of fine china that you may see at the Buckingham Palace. πŸ˜‰

Of course a bright neon yellow was used to accentuate and complement the rich royal blue thanks to the use of the color wheel.

ModestlyHot PRO Tip: Use the color wheel to your fashion advantage when you don’t have a clue on what to wear!Β 

Look #2: Blush on Blush Princess Formal Outfit

img_4696img_4695img_4694-1img_4689img_4688img_4691img_4692-1

I think this has to be one of my favorite outfits so far! I scored this gorgeous 1950’s blush colored peplum blazer from my local thrift store for just $5! Also paired this up with my new favorite skirt from Ross! Just $10

$15 scores you a Kate Middleton inspired outfit!

Mind. Blown.

img_4698img_4697img_4699

How gorgeous is this Pinterest famous statement necklace?! More details soon to come on where you can get your hands on one! My photographer and awesome friend Trish is about to launch her own jewelry and fashion line in the fall!!

img_4700-1

Look #3: Pretty in Pink & Polkadots

img_4707img_4706-1img_4705

A simple pink on pink outfit with a pop of mint! A more casual (yet princess inspired) take on Kate Middleton’s fashion.

Special Thanks to the gorgeous and talented Charissa Lee who shot this whole photoshoot so quickly! (Because everyone knows I cannot keep up a straight face for more than an hour lol!)

All the outfit, photography and makeup used in this photoshoot will be listed down below!

God Bless and have a great Monday!

πŸ‚πŸπŸƒModest Fall Fashion: Plaids,Navy & Burgundy Featuring Sierra Brooke Clothing! Β 

Hello and Happy Sunday!! πŸ˜πŸ’› 

Way to go we’ve made it to another week closer to Christmas Break!! 

I apologize for being totally M.I.A. This week but we had the pleasure of having a local high schooler visiting  our dorm for College Days which made the week pretty full!

In the midst of all this we still had our classes, homework, services and some pretty awesome activities! 

Like Laser Tag in the church gym! 

 So here’s a quick recap on the activities we helped to set up for College Days! 

Bubble Soccer! (Still pretty sore from this!πŸ˜†)   
   
Rochelle,Me and Linla! ❀️❀️❀️

 
It was so much fun setting up laser tag even though I feel like I need to catch up on sleep!😴😴 😴

Without further ado let’s move onto today’s outfit!! 

  

I just adore my Sierra Brooke Plaid Dress!!!😍😍😍 

Isn’t the plaid perfect for fall and the holidays?!?πŸ‚πŸπŸƒ πŸ˜πŸŒ²β„οΈπŸŽ

  
This dress can be worn alone and the cut of it is super stunning! 

It features a classic navy plaid pattern with princess seams and is just the right amount of length for modesty purposes! 

  
One of the reasons I am huge fan of this dress is because it is so versatile! Also it doesn’t require any ironing and you can just grab it and go! (Gotta love that!) 

   
    

I decided on giving this dress a bit of a fall fashion tranformation! πŸπŸ‚πŸƒ You’ll probably  see this dress featured in my upcoming Holiday Lookbook !

   
   
Fall Fashion Style Tip*

You can transform any outfit into fall fashion by adding key accessories such as shown above. 

Anything cognac,burgundy, deep reds and Browns will transition any outfit to fall!πŸπŸ‚πŸƒ

I just adore my Two 12 fashion cognac wrap belt! I am always wearing it!

This wine colored bubble statement necklace from Our World Boutique  Has definitely been a Fall essential this season! Go ahead and check out these amazing sites! They are so affordable and friendly!

 For hair and makeup I decided on soft Browns and matte dust rose colored lips and blush color from E.L.F.!

  
For $3 they are totally better than some high end brands at Sephora!

I’m currently wearing  the shade “Tea Rose ” which makes a great everyday neutral! 

Since this dress has a Princess style  cut, it is only fit to accompany it with Princess hair!πŸ‘‘

There’s just something about pinning back only one part of your hair to the back that makes for a classy feminine hairstyle!

   
   
That’s wraps up today’s Sunday’s best!

Till Next Time !

Also don’t forget to check out this stunning navy plaid dress from Sierra Brooke!(links down below!)

πŸ’›πŸŒΉDisney Princess Beauty and the Beast Inspired Outfit! Featuring Shabby Apple!πŸ’›πŸŒΉ+ DIY Enchanted Rose!

Happy Saturday Lovelies!!

Disney fashion inspired looks are back!πŸ™ŒπŸ» You may remember this lookbook about a year ago where  I would try to replicate a Disney character’s outfit,makeup and hair with items I had in my closet!

Personally I  don’t celebrate Haloween but find it so much fun to dress up as a Disney Princess anytime of the year! β€οΈπŸ’™πŸ’› 

Here is a quick DIY Disney Inspired Princess Belle outfit with things you have already in your closet!  

   

I cannot wait to share with you all this Belle inspired outfit! 😍 drumroll pleaseπŸŽ‰ 

  I chose to channel my inner Belle from Beauty and the Beast!β€οΈπŸŒΉπŸ’›

Okay you guys I must confess Belle is definitely my favorite Disney Princess!😍😍🌹❀️

I recreated Belle’s ball gown look with the help of this gorgeous Shabby Apple Dress!!πŸ˜πŸ’›πŸ™ŒπŸ» 

  
The style of it is called the “West End Dress” and it’s stunning! The bow wrap around style made the fit just right! I love that it has a tie that I can adjust depending on how tight/loose I want it! 

It features a gorgeous satin sheen with a flared bottom! 

   
    
 How to Belle’s Hair:

for Belle’s hair all you’ll need is: 

~hair elastic 

~bobby pins 

~Hairspray 

~Brush

~Yellow Ribbon 

First you want to curl your hair with a one inch curling iron or wand! Next you’d want to do a small half up half down hair poof and reserve the hair on the sides of your head to pin later! 

Make the small hair poof and tie it! 

Place the yellow ribbon on top of the poof and secure with bobby pins ! 

(Remember to “X” your Bobby pins for maximum security) 

Take the hair that you reserved and tease the sides and pin in place! 

Super easy and takes about 15 minutes ! 

How to Belle’s Makeup: 

For Belle’s makeup the key is soft Browns and rose golds on the lid with bright red lips! I achieved th Belle look using my favorite makeup pallete ever: The Disney Beauty Books!! 

 

 

  
The packaging alone is worth it!! I picked up three of the 4 books in Walgreens back in April and I’m obsessed!πŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ’• 

   
    
    
 
I love how the eyeshadow names relate to the movies!πŸ’™β€οΈπŸ’› Quality wise they’re not the best I’ve ever tried (sorry Disney Lorac stole my heart) but they’re pretty good and a must if you’re a Disney Princess fanatic like me!πŸ’™β€οΈπŸ’›πŸ‘‘ 

  
Now my favorite part of the Disney photoshoots have to be “DIY’ing” the props! Of course who can forget the Enchanted Floating Rose from Beauty and the Beast! 

I went online to see if buying it would be cheaper than making it but found my answer quickly when I saw that they ran up to $180! 😱 

So I just made it instead for under $16! 

You will need :

~Dome Bell Jar 

~Plastic Rose from Michaels/Walmart ! 

You can even find bell jars at your local thrift store! 

Also I think it would be adorable to add string lights around the rose for a cute nightlight /room decor !

   

  
   
 
I hope you all have a great day tommorow and I’ll be talking to you soon lovelies!πŸ’• 

Xoxo

Hello friends!!!

Happy 100th Post!!! I woke up to a WordPress notification that ModestlyHot has written 100 posts today!

So Saturdays are meant for shopping right ladies? And by shopping I totally mean online shopping! No waiting in lines, sore feet, or spending more money than anticipated!

So without further ado, let’s get on with the shoes!!

IMG_4709

So for these first three pairs of shoes I actually went to the mall and stumbled across a hot shoe sale! πŸ˜‰

All the shoes were on clearance for just $5.99!!!

IMG_4694

Modest Style Diaries: Classic Striped Ball Gown Skirt! Featuring My Shop!

Hello Friends!!

Have you ever had those days where you just want a little pick me up?! For me an instant pick me up is a classic matte red lip, especially for ”tired skin” days!

IMG_4643

I am so pleased and excited to announce the re-open of my shop!! And I have some pretty exciting arrivals in store, one of the them including this skirt!

IMG_4646

Hello there Gorgeous!! ❀

You all know how much I LOVE ball gown princess skirts! They’re elegant, classy and so chic, and this one happens to be from my shop; Shop ModestlyHot!

IMG_4651

IMG_4662

As I was styling the skirt I wanted to give it a New York meets Retro feel to it.

I wore my J.Crew Button up Shirt with a huge red vintage belt to cinch in my waist! To add to the glamour I wore my ”one size fits all” necklace! The reason why I say that is because that this necklace from Purple PeridotΒ goes with every single outfit! It’s like the little black dress for jewelry!

IMG_4648

IMG_4665

Hair of the Day:Β I guess I could tell you that wearing an ultra chic top bun was part of the planned outfit, but ima keep it real with y’all and say that I just didn’t want to deal with my curling iron and have weak arms at the end of it quite honestly! #longhairproblems

IMG_4667

IMG_4663

IMG_4660

Disney Princess Cinderella + Mint Tulle Skirt Outfit! Featuring Space 46 Boutique!

Happy Monday Friends!!

Disney Fashion Week is in full force and we are starting off the week with another Cinderella Inspired Outfit!

IMG_3235

IMG_3326-1

IMG_3703

IMG_3698

You may have recalled two of my past Cinderella Inspired outfits, but I couldn’t help myself for one more go at this stylish Princess!

IMG_4491

So for this week I wanted to channel my inner Cinderella in a more subtle way!

IMG_4478

You guys!! I finally found my holy grail tee shirt!!

Disney and Vogue ?!! Together?!! Ugh this is perfection beyond belief!

Two of my favorite obsessions wrapped up into one glorious top!

I scored this awesome shirt late one night browsing through Poshmark for just $10!

IMG_4480

I decided to pair up my Vogue Cinderella Shirt with my mint tulle skirt from Space 46 Boutique!

I have seen this dreamy tulle skirt all over Pinterest and I just HAD to get my hands on one!

I finally pulled the trigger and bought my first Space 46 tulle skirt! They are totally worth every penny!

My favorite part of this skirt is the satin waistband, and the volume of the skirt! Not too poofy and not too flat but just right!

I think Goldilocks would approve πŸ˜‰

IMG_4488

IMG_4475

For accessories and shoes I wore my single strand rhinestone necklace with my DIY Cinderella Shoes!

I decided on a single strand necklace so it would add some shine to the outfit but wouldn’t distract from the wording of the actual shirt. And for $1 you just can’t beat that! I actually bought a back up of the necklace!

For shoes I couldn’t decide on which pair, so I wore both! lol

The first pair I purchased it from a shoe clearance sale at the mall for just $5.99! They’re double strapped and have the coolest holographic print all over them!

IMG_4484

IMG_4472

IMG_4469

The second pair of heels were my Silver Glitter Heels I made from an old pair of pumps I had laying around!

Here’e the link to my DIY Cinderella Shoe tutorial! So Easy and a great inexpensive way to spruce up your old heels!

IMG_4493

IMG_4486

For hair and makeup: I went for my go to Retro 60’s Inspired Half Up- Half Down Do!

It’s really quite simple and some of you on Instagram have requested a hair tutorial, which I am currently working on!

My go to makeup is quite neutral, which includes just layering shadows of light brown, medium brown and dark chocolate brown to enhance the crease! Big lashes, and bold winged eyeliner have become part of my usual makeup routine.

My go to palette is definitely the LORAC PRO/LORAC UNZIPPED! The shadows are pillow soft and blend out gorgeously!

I used to be a total Urban Decay junkie now I am a LORAC girl all the way!
