Modest 4th of July Outfits Lookbook!

Happy 240th Birthday America!

1467647986081-1

150 million hotdogs, 285 million pounds of fireworks, and $48 million will be spent by consumers shopping for anything, red, white and blue! (that would include me lol!)

Next to Christmas, 4th of July is my favorite holiday! I cannot explain exactly why, but it is!

Nothing is ever free, though to you it be. Β Somewhere, Somehow, Someone paid.

American Liberty surely is great, Liberty in Christ is greater!

 

As I was reading through my devotions this morning it dawned on me that celebrating 4th of July as a Christian takes a whole new meaning on also being liberated from the bondage of sin.

Even though U.S citizens have freedom, ironically some are still held by the chains of their sins. Chains that can only be broken by placing one’s trust on Jesus Christ.

1 John 1:9

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Look #2: Stars & Stripes AND Anchors! Β

How to Style a Tulle Skirt: Plaid & Tulle! Featuring Taralynns BoutiqueπŸπŸƒπŸ‚βœ¨πŸ‚πŸƒπŸβœ¨πŸ‚πŸƒπŸβœ¨πŸ‚πŸƒπŸ

Hello and Happy Sunday!!πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ I hope you all had a wonderful church service! Sunday mornings are always the best because I get to squeeze in a little bit more sleep! And by sleeping in I mean like sleeping in til 6:00am LOL
  

So today’s outfit was actually planned yesterday afternoon when I received this adorable package in my mailbox from Taralynn’s Boutique ! (SO EXCITING!😍😍😍😍) I opened up the package (like a gorilla btw😁) and saw the most amazing white tulle skirt ever!! 

  
It’s like a white fluffy cloud of cuteness!!😍☁️ (according to my roommate it looks like a fluffy white cloud lol!☁️) 

I gasped out loud and headed toward my dresser to pair up my new skirt with a plaid shirt! 

You guys for ages I have been wanting to recreate this outfit on Pinterest! !It’s actually a fall themed wedding but could be worn for a cute contrasting fall outfit using a tulle skirt! 

  
    

Fall was clearly on my mind and I decided  on wearing golds,coppers and burnt reds for today’s makeup! 

I adore this lip color from Wet N wild which is actually an exact dupe for MAC’s Rebel lipstick! The only difference is the priceπŸ’Έ One is $2 and the other is $14! I bet you can guess which one I like more now πŸ˜‰ 

   

 For my hair I only spent a max of 10 minutes on it! I just teased the crown of my hair and added one of those hair pieces that look like a scrunchy to add more volume to my low side bun! Hello 90’s trend!) 

   

  

  I love plaid and tulle together because it dresses down the tulle skirt but looks so chic! 
Of course you can’t have plaid without pearls!! πŸ™ŒπŸ» 

   
    
 
I adore this white tulle skirt! This outfit would be great for Christmas!! I love the fact that this skirt is so stretchy in the waistline so it allows me to eat as much as I want without feeling like I’m going to explode! 

LOL

   
   
I’ve had many tulle skirts over the past year but this one is probably the better structured one for sure! It keeps its shape all day long and I don’t feel the need to wear an extra tulle skirt underneath for volume!

I could see from the package that the skirt was so fluffy and full of life! Perfect for twirling πŸ˜‰ (admit it you do it too !) 

   
   
Well that’s all for today’s post! 

Gotta head on out and take care of the 3 year olds! Wish me luck! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š 

God Bless,

Xoxo

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!

Nothing fancy just got it re-layered for the summer!

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

Modest Church Outfit! How to Style a Tulle Skirt!

Happy Sunday To you all!!!

Boy it was a HOT day here in Utah! I mean wearing a tulle skirt in 90 degree weather was probably not the best idea but I was feeling in high spirits today and wearing bright colors was a must!

IMG_2304

You might recognize this skirt from one of my previous lookbooks, the ”Modest Disney Princess” LookBook !

I only wore it once for the photo shoot but I finally found it again just casually hanging in my closet begging for me to wear it again!

IMG_2301

You might recognize this ”shirt” from one of my previous outfits!

IMG_1955

Lol I wanted to wear a crop striped shirt from Forever 21 that is EXACTLY like this one but it was a long sleeve top and it was much too hot for that!

Here’s a little fashion hack that I always use! Wear your dresses as tops for your high waisted skirts!

Sometimes the perfect top isn’t really a top!

So instead I wore this She InsideΒ pencil dress as my top today since it was short sleeve!

IMG_2300

For my necklace I wanted a chic and polished look so I opted for a gold necklace I purchased from Claire’s!

IMG_2304

Truth be told I woke up this morning with second day Flinstone hair; so up it went! (Gotta love 2 minute hairstyles on a Sunday morning!)

IMG_2303

Fashion Inspiration for today’s outfit goes to the fabulous bumble bees!

IMG_2299

Well that wraps up today’s church #ootd ! I hope you all have a short Monday tomorrow!

Til Next Time

XOXO,

Ashley
