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! 

So let me challenge you today to shop your own closet and create your own unique #ootd👌 By mixing and matching pieces you already own! 

For a little outfit inspo here is what I came up with using items that were already in my closet!

Fall Fashion Modest Outfits 2016! Tribal Skirt & Maroon Featuring LuLa Roe Review!

Happy Wednesday!!

Well today was officially my last day working at my In-N-Out home store #245 for the summer!

I have mixed emotions about it all really, one part of me is excited to return to the grind of Bible college, the other part of me is just bummed out that I have to leave the comforts of my home, work, and family behind! As soon as I have adjusted to my new managers, associates and my schedule it is time to leave and readjust again to a new environment.

However the constant changes are beneficial to the overall growth of a person. Change brings daily challenges to rise up against, new faces to meet, and a chance to extend Christ’s love to others I would have never met if I stay in Utah. So with that being said, BRING IT ON Fall Semester!!

I may not be the smartest, strongest, nor most talented, but I know of someone who is all that and much more!! I’m so grateful that God is more interested in my AVAILABILITY than my ABILITY!

“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness”

2 Corinthians 12:9

So onto today’s fall fashion modest outfits for 2016! & let me tell you I have plenty in store for you ladies!!

I was sent this gorgeous tribal printed pencil skirt from LuLa Roe by the kind Laura Medina who shares in ModestlyHot’s same mission in providing faith and fashion inspiration to ladies all across the globe!

I am obsessed with my Cassie style pencil skirt from LuLa Roe! Literally the comfiest outfit and brand on the planet!! Laura Picked this gorgeous piece out for me and it tied in beautifully with my fall modest look book!

If you follow my Instagram stories, you know I bought every single color of these one size stretchy long sleeved tops! They are the perfect fit and go with EVERY OUTFIT and for $4.99 you cannot beat that price! Look for them in the “one size'” tops at the end of the aisle! They’ve added new fall colors like mustard, maroon, plum and olive green!

That does it for modest fall look numero uno! Many more are to come this week!

So what is my overall consensus on this LuLa Roe Cassie Skirt?

 

F A B 😀 OR DRAB?:( 

MOST DEFINITELY FAB!

I like list making so here are my reasons on why I dig this skirt!

  1. COMFORT:  A comfy skirt will always have a special place in my heart!
  2. CUTENESS! Fall calls for warm sweaters, pumpkin spiced EVERYTHING and tribal prints!  
  3. MODEST: Length comes right at my knee, It is not uber tight, and has a stretchy waistband

This is ModestlyHot and I approve this message ; )

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!

img_4441

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 #1: Red, White, & Blue (and don’t forget bows! 😉

img_4443

This white tulle skirt has been paired up with so many different types of looks! Seriously it pairs up with anything you throw at it! This is a great option for a fancy night out on the 4th!

Look #2: Stars & Stripes AND Anchors!  

img_4448img_4449

I’m sorry did someone say anchor heels?! And for how much?

Hello $9.99 heels!

img_4447img_4445img_4446

Stay tuned because more looks will be added tomorrow! All outfit, photography and links will be listed down below!

VERSE OF THE DAY:

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,

Modest in Red, White & Blue! Memorial Day Outfit Ideas!

Hey you guys!! Happy Friday!! It’s been crazy how fast this week has gone by!

To say that I am ready for the weekend is an understatement! (Shopping, food and fun? Yes Please!)

Memorial Day is right around the corner and I thought to myself ,”hmm I have dozens of outfit ideas on that!”

I personally love anything that is red,white and blue, anchors, stars and stripes! It all excites me!!

IMG_2151                           So for today’s outfit I have the morning off so I am going to swing by the store and pick up an order I made by phone.(Cant wait to show you all what the mystery item is!!)

I recently shopped at Rue21 and picked up some clearance goodies since they were having the entire store on sale!  plus buy one get one 50%OFF !

So…… I bought this top!

IMG_2147

I know I know… You’d think I would have enough anchor print tops already right?!

TOTALLY WRONG!

You can never have too many cute anchor shirts!!

As soon as i saw it I knew it had to be mine + I got it half off!

You can’t tell in the pic but the sleeves are actually cuffed! So J. Crew!

Now, I loved how the first outfit looked but last year I did a pretty similar look with the same skirt but with a different anchor top which was also coincidentally from Rue 21!

IMG_2135

#tbt

So I wanted to jazz it up a bit and I knew exactly what I was going to pair it up with!

I actually had to dig this striped H&M blazer from my hamper which is pretty intimidating because it was stuffed full!

IMG_2141

I love how this outfit screams nautical! Oh and here’s a quick little tip for easy pattern mixing!

Always match colors not patterns! In this outfit the striped blazer works with the anchor print top because they’re both navy and white. And the pop of yellow works because yellow and navy are opposites on the color wheel.

IMG_2149

Since there was alot of pattern mixing and colors already I opted for my nude Christian Louboutin heels!

Not the comfiest pair of heels but definitely the most stylish! (That pop of red gets me every time!)

IMG_2144

IMG_2143

IMG_2146

I already want to wear this shirt again!!

Well that’s all for now and I have included some outfit ideas for Memorial Day Weekend and 4th of July!

Hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday!

Love ya!

XOXO,

Ashley

DIY Frozen Inspired Tulle Wreath!

Happy Monday Everyone!
Another week, another DIY project! February is rolling around next week and I wanted to get this post up before January ended. I enjoy making all kinds of wreaths but this was my first time making one out of tulle! I must say it was the easiest, pain free way to make a wreath! If you’ve never made a wreath before this would be a good place to start!

Lets get started!

You will need:
~Foam Wreath (Walmart)

~Rolls of Tulle in Ice Blue and White (Walmart 2 of each)

~Snowflake Decorations (Walmart)

~Hot Glue Gun                                                                                                         IMG_8684

To get started you will need to cut strips of your tulle. Test the length out on your wreath, your strips should be long enough to look like tulle but not too long or else the tulle will not stand up straight and flop over. After you are happy with the length, continue to cut the rest of the tulle.                                                                          IMG_8685

Next, take your strip of tulle and make a loop underneath the wreath and pull it through.                         IMG_8686

Make sure to pull it tight and slide it over to cover the white foam of the wreath. I tied 4 strips of the blue and 4 strips of the white all around the wreath.

IMG_8687

After the wreath is all covered you will notice you’ll have longer pieces of tulle than others, just trim those ends up and you’re all set to decorate!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        IMG_8689                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              IMG_8690

IMG_8695

I used these gorgeous glitter snowflakes to give it a more ”Frozen Princess” theme!

Oh! I forgot to add that I glue a piece of blue ribbon on the back so it can be hung!

IMG_8691-0                                                                                                                    IMG_8693

I loved how beautiful the tulle looks! I will have more fun and easy DIY projects coming this week!

Til Next Time

XOXO
