Fourth of July is my favorite holiday🇱🇷👌😍😊 (next to Christmas of course!)  

I just love all the fireworks, festivals and food😉


I rarely shop for a new outfit on the Fourth of July because more than half of my wardrobe already is red, white and blue or nautical!

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.  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!

I believe out of all colors I have the most of is red, white and navy blue!

Its such a classic, timeless color combination that will always look refined and classy!

Another thing that most of you have noticed is that I LOVE ANCHORS!!!

AAAH!

For look #1 I paired up my classic chambray denim shirt with my new current favorite anchor print skater skirt!!

A sweet lady on Instagram actually makes these fun skirts!!

For my shoes I didn’t want to pair up this look with the obvious color red, but i wanted to do some pattern mixing!

So navy and white striped flats it was! I got these adorable striped flats from Jane.com! I got them for a steal of just $6!!

Now onto the next look! I was out on a photoshoot with my lovely friend Mildred at City Creek (we got sidetracked by cute clothes lol)  and saw that The Limited was having a clearance sale on most of their pencil skirts! i immediately grabbed this gorgeous red and navy lace pencil skirt and it was a perfect fit! I wore my chambray shirt once again and some classy nude Louboutins.

Look #4 or is it look #3?! I forget and am too lazy to scroll back up to check lol!

I think this is my most repeated outfit that I have yet to photograph til today! LOL

I would always wear this same exact outfit and somehow something would always pop up that I couldn’t get a picture posted!!

I love this skirt i bought from Downeast Basics! The Picnic Skirt was the cutest skirt I have ever seen!

There’s nothing more American than a classic Coke!

IMG_2995

Random fact of the day: Even though I was dying to chug down this delicious coke (plus it was really hot out) I can’t drink soda since the carbonation makes me ill. But on the bright side it makes an adorable prop!

IMG_2990

IMG_2987

I once again tied up my chambray shirt to give it a fun vibe!

Modest Summer Outfit! + How To Dress Modestly in the Summer Heat!

Greetings lovelies!!

The summer heat is just around the corner which means that maintaining our modesty standards can be very challenging!

Usually what we resort to is a good ol’ cardigan and layering of pieces to make modesty stylish but this may not be such a good idea in the summer! (‘Cause sweating just isn’t cute!)

So here are some of my tips and tricks to beat the heat while maintaining our modesty standards!

IMG_2453

Tip #1: Wear lightweight Fabrics: Knit jerseys and cotton are the best!

Wearing these types of fabrics are not only breathable fabrics but are very comfortable in the summer heat!

Maxi dresses, and skirts are usually made out of this breathable material! And not to mention so affordable at places like ROSS, TJ MAXX and Forever21!

Tip #2: Wear Single Pieced Clothing Items!

Dresses are going to be your best friend in the summer!! Skirts are awesome and all but we all know the hassle of wearing a skirt and having to layer an undershirt + a shirt + a belt! I love wearing maxi skirts in the summer because they usually are already good ”stand alone pieces” that don’t require too much decoration up top!

Tip #3: Breathable FOOTWEAR!

Sandals!! No duh! Wearing heels is my favorite and I will continue to wear them (yes even in the summer) but when I go to festivals/summer shopping etc I always make sure to wear either sandals or open toed heels! What a difference it makes! It is said that you can regulate your body’s temperature by your feet and your neck.

Tip #4: Put your jewelry in the freezer!

Haha I know this sounds a bit strange but it really works! Pop your favorite statement necklace for an hour in the freezer (preferably in a plastic bag) before you head out. Once you’re ready to head out wear your refreshingly cold necklace and watch how it cools down your body temperature! This of course is temporary but I have noticed that I stay cooler, longer!

Alright now that I’ve shared my tips and tricks with you all let’s get on with today’s outfit!

IMG_2458

Stars and Stripes is what’s going on for a Tuesday afternoon!

I adore this dress I bought from a midnight deal on Jane!

I adore anything patriotic! Stars, stripes, red, white and blue yes please!!

IMG_2454

IMG_2462

Now I added my white lace skirt extender for some extra length! Plus the lace adds some feminine texture!

IMG_2456

For my hair and makeup I wore a classic red lip and a vintage half up half down hair do with a red hair bow!

IMG_2455

IMG_2457                               I think this dress would be an awesome 4th of July outfit!!

IMG_2453

Well that wraps up today’s post! I hope you all enjoyed it and let me know some of your tips and tricks for dressing modestly in the summer!

Til Next Time!

XOXO,

Ashley
