Headbands of Hope and I have teamed up to not only promote these super cute handmade headbands, but also with every headband that is purchased, one is given to a child with cancer! How awesome is that?!

Around the same time Headbands of hope contacted me, a local Salt Lake City volunteer group invited me to attend and participate in a bike parade and 5k for a sweet little girl named Ruby, who was born with a large mass on the back of her head that resembled a tumor.

During a routine MRI scan this spring, a technician inadvertently captured the top of Ruby’s lungs in the image. A CT scan soon followed and it was discovered that Ruby’s lungs were full of tumors. She was given the diagnosis of Stage 4 Metastatic Melanoma.

After hearing what Ruby and her family were going through, the community decided to round all their resources together to organize a bike parade and 5K run to raise proceeds for the Thackeray family.

The turn out was unbelievable! Many well known Utah shops donated 5 table full of merchandise and gift baskets ready for the Silent Auction!

There were so many good things to bid on! ( a dozen full of tamales were among the items lol)

Being a kids bike parade I dressed up as Snow White! ( because what little girl doesn’t like Disney?!)

For the Headbands of Hope photoshoot I decided on wearing this gorgeous gold plate headdress that has a diamond chain draped on the outside! A floor length sequin maxi skirt with my “Walking with Purpose” tee seemed to match the mission of Headbands of Hope perfectly!

I would totally check out their website and pick out headband and become a headband hero to a little girl battling cancer! It’s amazing to see what an impact a small decorative headband can have on a girl’s self esteem! >>>>Check out the Giving Gallery HERE!<<<

Modest “Little Red Dress” Featuring Mod Posh Boutique+Giveaway!!

Ahh yes the classic little red dress, the one dress that every woman needs at any given moment to be prepared for any special occasion, wedding or event!

But actually finding a “little red dress” that’s not so little can be a struggle!

Thankfully there are shops like Mod Posh (by my fellow blogger friend)!

A classic red lace victorian inspired dress that is both modest AND glamorous!

img_3980img_3982img_3983

And it’s finally back in stock! A dress that is sure to impress at any wedding, event or graduation for sure! Plus, did I mention that it is only $35?!

When in doubt… Put a Bow on it!

This dress is gorgeous all on its own but for a little added pop of cuteness and sparkle I added my go-to belt from Two 12 Fashion.

Reasons why I am loving this dress: 

  1. A modest high neckline that is covered in lace
  2. A classic A-line pleated shape
  3. Dainty and feminine scalloped lace hem for a high fashion look
  4.  It is fully lined and completely modest!

Recently, these lace up heels have been taking over the fashion and Instagram world! I knew I had to get on the bandwagon and picked them up also in the color black!

I love supporting small modest shops that are good quality and affordable! Mod Posh has so many stylish modest skirts that are on my wishlist!

I love Instagram shops because they make shopping so much easier and they usually give many outfit inspirations/combinations with that article of clothing.

 

Pssst…. I have a secret!  I loved my dress so much that Mod Posh and I have teamed up to bring you lovely ladies a giveaway of anything you’d like on their Instagram! There will  be a giveaway going on today in a couple of minutes 😉 Enjoy!!

Classic Stripes Midi Dress Featuring Kingdom & State + Art Meets Fashion Show Event!

Ahh yes the classic striped dress! A dress that will stand the test of time, pair up beautifully with any color or print you throw at it, and is fit for any occasion!

In fact, I felt inspired to write an “original” poem for this classic staple piece especially written for you, yes you  behind your screen 😉

Roses are Red,

Violets are Blue,

A striped dress is a necessity

And your closet agrees with me too!

But in all seriousness, because we take our fashion very serious here at ModestlyHot Headquarters, aka my room with a stuffed animal on the shelf, a striped dress will CHANGE. YOUR. LIFE.

Okay,

That was a tad bit dramatic, but newsflash most bloggers usually are!

How G O R G E O U S is the structure of this Kingdom and State dress?

Classic, BOLD, and timeless, I think Paris would be proud!

If I had three thumbs, I would totally give this dress  3 thumbs up! (Now that is a weird thought and we are just going to scroll right along as if we didn’t read that okay? 😀

It’s ACCESSORY TIME!

Why am I so pumped for this segment? Um, maybe because my earring were $3 AND FROM

Wait for it…..

WALMART! Yep, you read that right! Walmart!

The outdoor displays were amazing! There were models inside the rain displays with the coolest of lighting!

I hope you all have a great weekend! Love you Lots!
