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!

img_2446img_2431img_2437

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

img_2420img_2430img_2426

img_2432

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

The ULTIMATE Modest Holiday LookBook Part 1!

Hello and Happy Sunday Lovelies!!

Boy what a month it has been! I feel like I have so much to catch up with you guys!

Thank you so much for checking up on me after 2 weeks of not posting outfits! You all are so sweet! This month has been full of finals, sickness, flights and going back home for Christmas Break with my family!

Thankfully I am feeling so much better and ready to kill these blog posts! LOL

I am so excited to be back home for the holidays! Don’t get me wrong California is beautiful and all, but it just didn’t feel like Christmas without Utah snow!!

Here are some random snapshots of what’s been going on within the past 3 weeks! Enjoy!

Black Friday Shopping with my girls! It was so fun shopping at 1am! It’s the first time I have stepped foot in a Papaya store and I am obsessed! The deals were amazing at Forever 21! Hello 50% OFF Clearance! It was really awesome meeting two of my followers at the Windsor store! Thank you for totally making my night!

IMG_6345 It’s Christmas Time at Lancaster Baptist Church! It was so much fun inviting people to the Christmas Music Special! The orchestra did an awesome job with all the arrangements! It was a great night of worship and sharing the real reason of the season which is the great story of Jesus Christ!

IMG_6563

Christmas on campus! After a week of intense studying for finals it was awesome to just wind down and enjoy the tree lighting, Christmas crafts, gingerbread house making, and dinner served by our teachers! (So Sweet!)

(Yay for my house not collapsing! LOL)

IMG_6350Monday rolls around and it’s time to pack up for Christmas Break!!! EEK!!

Okay quick confession I actually had already been packed up and ready to go a week before! hahaha!  Needless to say I was excited to go back home for the holidays! Again I love West Coast Baptist College but after finals and just being sick for the longest time I was ready to check out and go home!

Finally at the airport and look what I found! A makeup vending machine! So Cute!! Who agrees that there must be more of these?!

IMG_6376

LA from above! Probably the best part of my flight was when I was half asleep and I heard the pilot announce ”Welcome to Salt Lake City Utah!” I immediately woke up and started getting exciting because I could recognize many familiar landmarks from above!

IMG_6386

And then I arrive to a Winter Wonderland!! #Utah

Well after all those snapshots let’s get on with this Holiday Lookbook! Let me warn you it will probably be one of the biggest lookbooks I’ve ever done! I just ADORE everything about Christmas and just the entire month of December really! Jesus, lights, family, feasts, snow, and of course all the GLAMOROUS outfits one gets to rock and get away with only this time of year!

(Of course if you think like me; that there needs to be no reason to go all out! Who says you can only rock sequins in the Holiday season??)

Without further ado let’s get on with The ULTIMATE Modest Holiday Lookbook! Part 1!

Winter Wonderland Tulle! Featuring Taralynn’s White Tulle Skirt!

Literally one of my fav skirts ever!! It’s structured, flared and so princess like!

IMG_6407

Red Buffalo Plaid Shirt & White Tulle Skirt!

You’ll probably be seeing this skirt featured many times on my blog because I truly am obsessed with it! I have recently been loving shopping at Walmart for clothes! Yes Walmart!! They really have been stepping it up with trendy affordable pieces like this adorable buffalo plaid blouse! I believe it was only $12 and the statement necklace a steal at $3!

IMG_6370

IMG_6368

Holiday Pattern Mixing: Buffalo Plaid & Stripes! Featuring Taralynn’s Striped Midi Skirt!

Clearly I love Taralynn’s boutique because here is another of my all time favorite skirts! This designer inspired striped skirt is a staple in my closet! the cut and quality is exactly why I keep wearing this skirt over and over again! SO many endless combinations! A true Classic!

IMG_6355IMG_6354IMG_6137IMG_6135

Plaid, Cognac, & Holiday Green Midi Skirt!

Another Walmart find with this gorgeous black and white plaid shirt! just $12! If you haven’t noticed I have a thing for cognac colored anything! So Chic and rustic! This emerald satin like midi skirt dresses everything up for the holidays!

IMG_6179IMG_6181IMG_6178

Blanket Scarf, Plaid & Cozy Sweaters Featuring @NormonyDesign Custom Made Skirts! 

I have been wanting a plaid midi skirt for this holiday season and this sweet lady on Instagram makes custom skirts and she made me the perfect warm and cozy plaid midi skirt! I love how she personalized my package when it came and how it fits like a glove! It’s the perfect skirt for a cold snowy day!

IMG_6388IMG_6447IMG_6439IMG_6436IMG_6422IMG_6420IMG_6433IMG_6445IMG_6448

Buffalo Plaid Pencil Skirts, Leather Peplums & Gold Bow Belts Featuring Willow Blaire Boutique! 

My mission this holiday season was to find buffalo plaid clothing at an affordable price!! This buffalo plaid skirt is actually on sale now at Willow Blaire’s Boutique’s Website for just $19.95! Super warm and comfy! Perfect for those holiday feasts! LOL

I decided to pair up my buffalo plaid pencil skirt with my leather peplum from Forever 21! I scored this top on Black Friday for just $3 when it’s original retail price was $30!! SCORE! I added my fav gold bow belt from Two 12 Fashion! I totally recommend you guys to check their site out! They have the best belts ever!

Lastly I added some thick knit black tights and a pair of quilted booties from ShoeDazzle! 

IMG_6468

IMG_6038

Gold polkadot packaging?! and totally personalized too! Gotta love that!

Gold Holiday Sequin Maxi Dress! Featuring Neesees Dresses! 

Sparkle? Check! Comfy? Check! Modest? Check!

I mean need i say more? This is the kind of dress that needs no more bells and whistles added to it because the design of it just stands out beautifully simple yet glamorous!

I always love to give quality modest boutiques shoutouts and Neesees Dresses carry trendy and modest clothing!! Totally go ahead and take a look at their stuff!

IMG_6562-0IMG_6536IMG_6537IMG_6538

Black Sequin Maxi Skirt & Buffalo Plaid Shirt! Featuring Windsor Store!

EEK! This skirt though! I actually bought it last holiday season from the Windsor Store website but I unfortunately got sick and could not even get up from bed :/ (What is up with me getting sick around the holidays?!lol)

I was so excited to wear this skirt but i must admit it was a challenge trying to style this many sequins in one skirt! So I decided to tone it down with a classic plaid shirt from Walmart!

Navy, Golds and Midi Skirts! Featuring The Klassy Girl Boutique!

Oh you guys I cannot express my love for this skirt!!! It is just fit for a Princess that will make you feel like royalty! LOL The golds, navy and stripes just get me every time! C L A S S Y! Not to mention The Klassy Girl Boutique is one of my favs to collaborate with! They always have me drooling over their new skirts!!

IMG_6559-0IMG_6546IMG_6547-0IMG_6549-0IMG_6560-0

Gold, Black, Sequins & Polkadots! Featuring T AND J Designs! 

Gold, polkadots, and sequins?!! I don’t know about you but that’s a keeper in my book! 😉 I am OBSESSED with this T AND J Designs exclusive design! 

One of the things I love the most about this skirt is that it stretches in the waistline which may come in handy for those Mexican holidays feasts! LOL I wore a red long sleeved blouse from Ross that I purchased today for a festive look! I believe I say this quite often but really invest in those staple solid colored blouses! They’re very versatile because they’re solids yet they dress up an outfit than just a regular colored t-shirt! I always check my Ross every Wednesday (because that is when they have their inventory turnover) for these solid colored gems!

Oh!! I almost forgot to mention that T AND J Designs is having a 30% OFF Holiday Sale using the code: HOLIDAY30 at checkout!

ShoeDazzle, JustFab + More Shoe HAUL!

Hello friends!!!

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

Shoutout to all you faithful blog followers that keep sticking with me (even though I ramble at times lol)! A standing ovation to all of you!

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! 😉

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

IMG_4694

IMG_4698

Immediately I gasped and said, ”CINDERELLA SHOES!” They have a gorgeous double t-strap heels with these cool glitter holographic print all over the shoes!

I couldn’t resist picking up the gold pair as well!

IMG_4700

I fell in love with the red stud details, and the vibrant color!

Now onto the online purchases!! Let’s start with ShoeDazzle !

IMG_4509

GASP!!! Am I dreaming ?! Is this real life?!! These shoes are the total Princess package!! ❤

They kind of remind me of Kate Middleton or Princess Diana!

IMG_4589

The style of these shoes are the ”Lennox” style and is everything you’d want for a special occasion!

IMG_4686

IMG_4687

Hello Gorgeous! I was beyond thrilled when I opened up the pink ShoeDazzle box and saw these adorable spring wedges!!

IMG_4688

IMG_4689

IMG_4683

……

If you answered;

Who is Minnie Mouse?

You are totally spot on!

And they’re actually called the ”Minnie” on Shoedazzle’s site!

IMG_2605

I also picked up another pair of the ”Minnie” shoe in a soft baby blue gingham print!

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 😉

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!

Classic Red, White, & Stripes; Parisian Style

Happy Tuesday Girlies!!

These past couple of weeks have been just go go go for me but I have been working hard to get blog posts up! It’s quite stressful getting all these ideas that are bouncing in my head to actually having the time and resources to do them all!

Does that ever happen to you?

It’s like I know I am a creative person and it frustrates me sometimes that I just don’t have the time/ resources to do all these projects!

It also doesn’t help that I am a very impatient person by nature! lol

I feel as I am always trying to catch up with my brain that’s going 1000 miles per hour! Thus making me very tired at the end of the day! LOL

But as I woke up this morning going thru my usual Instagram feed routine (Do you guys go through your social media feeds in the morning too?) I saw this posted by DulceCandy that really struck me.

IMG_1935

If I could give this pic 10000000000+ likes I totally would!!!

I screen shot this and saved it onto my phone because it just hit the nail right on the head for me!

Sure it’s easy to just give up and throw in the towel because I feel ”stressed.” But it wouldn’t be as rewarding!

I sometimes ask myself,”Why am I doing this?” ”Is it even worth it?”

Strangely enough at this time I will receive an email/comment from one of you girlies sharing how I’ve given you inspiration on how to dress more modestly. You girls have NO idea how much you make my day and keep me motivated! Seriously You’re Awesome!

Now let’s get onto today’s #ootd

IMG_1956

I ordered this classic black and white striped midi dress about a week ago after my forever21 black and white midi dress got thrown in the wash and the white stripes are now grey :/

So I needed a replacement!

I bought this dress from SheInside and it arrived on Monday!

I am a strong believer in trying things out as soon as I get the package! LOL

I literally open my packages like a starving gorilla!

I don’t care if its late at night and I got my pajamas on, you know I’m going to be putting on a fashion show!

IMG_1955

The dress fits like a glove!

It slid on so perfectly and I felt like Goldilocks, not too tight and not loose but just right!

(That’s how the story went right? lol)

IMG_1950

I also ordered these red bow heels!!! AAAH!!!

Okay so quick story about these shoes!

So I originally saw these shoes on Just Fab’s website around Christmas time!

I had some doubts of whether or not I could rock these heels, if they were going to look awkward etc..

So I didn’t really think too much of ordering them and I felt a bit ”lukewarm” about these heels!

So I passed on them.

WORST. MISTAKE. EVER.

They were so popular that they were sold out everywhere!!

I even was going to buy the Aminaha Abdul Jillil ones that retailed for over $200.

(Yes I wanted them that badly!)

Of course as soon as I saw these heels on SheInside’s website I immediately ordered them without a second thought!

They were $30 but I had a 40% OFF coupon!

IMG_1952

I absolutely love my new shoes!!

I have always been a huge fan of the classic black, white and red combination!

Something so french and classic about it!

I wore my favorite little bag from Aldo! Don’t let this little guy fool you it carries ALOT!

Well this about does it for today!

I hope you all are having an awesome day!!And  I’ll chat with you later!

XOXO,

Ashley

The Classy Closet Series: Spring SHOE Haul!

Hello Lovelies!!

Happy Shoesday Tuesday!

IMG_1791

I am starting a new series on the blog; The Classy Closet Series!

Take a look inside my closet and my fashion finds that I’m currently loving!

This will be a very easy going and random series!! Pretty much I will be posting my opinion on fashion topics, current trends, clothing and shoe hauls, closet organization tips etc.!

Well since today is Shoesday Tuesday I decided that doing a Spring Shoe Haul would totally be fitting!

For the past couple of months I have been pretty good at my shoe impulsive buys! I just was not excited about any of the new styles on the market.

Until big shoe companies started to come out with these bad boys!

IMG_1724-0

I know right?!! Now its pretty obvious that these were inspired on the infamous Valentino Rockstud pumps!

But for a third of the price! Yes please!

I just love how these heels just add such a bold statement to any outfits! Naturally after owning one pair I needed to keep building my collection with more of these fab heels!

So as I was doing some night owl shopping on GoJane  they were having a 60% OFF sale off all shoes! Plus I had an additional 10% OFF coupon from Retail Me Not! (More savings=more shoes! )

And that very morning my goodies were on their way!

Their shipping is wicked fast! There’s nothing better than coming home to a big box of new shoes!!

IMG_1588

Totally made my day!! When I opened the box the first pair of shoes were these gorgeous black studded pumps!

I knew I had to have the black ones since they would go with every outfit and I would totally get my money’s worth! (I’ve already worn them with 4 outfits!)

IMG_1769

IMG_1768

My next pair of shoes were these Tiffany Blue/Turquoise Heels!! Aaah!!! The color is so right on for Spring/Summer!

I was kind of hesitant of purchasing them since the color is very bold and would probably be worn only around Spring, but they actually go with a lot of outfits especially for adding a fun pop pf color!

IMG_1770                          IMG_1771                           Two words: Hot Pink and Studs!

Of course I had to get them!! HAD TO!! I’ve given these shoes alot of wear already! haha! Am I the only one who beats up their shoes much too quickly?!!

IMG_1774                           IMG_1775                          I’m not sure if I should share this story because you might think I’m a bit of a compulsive shopper but here goes anyways!

I ordered the hot pink heels on Monday and received them on Wednesday morning, tried them on (more like danced around and jumped around with them lol ) and fell in love how awesome the fit was and how comfortable they are!

So I went on GoJane’s website and I pulled the trigger and bought these leopard ones all without a second thought!

I just couldn’t help it! Also I think i was pressured into buying these because it said they were the last ones in my size! (I blame it on GoJane honestly lol)

I decided on going to Rue 21 just to see what deals they had! And lo and behold I see the sign that every girl loves to see!

Um hello there 50%OFF!

IMG_1587

EEK!!! look at those floral studded flats!! Yes Yes yes!

Get in my cart!!!! lol okay I am totally freaking you guys out and I apologize! Lol

Rue 21 was having 50% Off all their clearance items!!!

IMG_1783

Mint? Floral? Studded?

Oh of course I was not going to walk out of the store without these!

IMG_1782

They were on clearance for $24 but i scored them for just $12!

I found its little sister in the flats section!! Now they didn’t have my size but I bought the next size up which will totally wok since they are closed toe.

IMG_1780                           IMG_1781                          How cute are they together?!!

You know what they say! ”If the shoe fits, buy it in every color!”

IMG_1609-0                           IMG_1790                          I hope you girls enjoyed this random shoe haul!

I’ll chat with you girlys later!

God Bless You,

XOXO,

Ashley
