Okay all the heart eyes for this trend! As far as I’m concerned you can just go ahead and embroider everything!

There’s just something so romantically bohemian about blue and white embroidery.

PRO TIP: Trendy Style on a Budget!

This college student loves to save as much money as possible and there are two stores that I always make sure to check out!

Ross and Rue 21!

Here’s the thing, not only will these two stores keep you in the know, but ultimately they will save you money! Remember trends will eventually fade away (unless it’s the infamous chambray shirt) then you’d probably be better off saving as much as you can.

Summer Trend 2017: Dainty Layered Necklaces & Wood Accessories

There’s nothing more chic than a dainty 5 layered necklace! Also, there is nothing more tragic/irritating when they become tangled! You may want to hang these necklaces to avoid the panic of untangling them last minute for your outfit. ( R.I.P to all the necklaces broken due to my impatience)

How to be “ModestlyHot” When It’s Hot! 5 Tips to Dressing Modestly in the Summer!

Happy Wednesday!

I am beyond thrilled to announce the completion of my very first magazine article with the gorgeous ladies at Sparkler’s Magazine!  Let me tell you about the light this sparkling trio shines through their articles! I have personally got to know these lovely ladies through Instagram and emailing them back and forth, and instantly knew they were the most genuine ladies called to be an encouragement everywhere they go!

I don’t think they realize how much they have encouraged me to continue blogging especially in college when time seemed to be very limited to even take a breather for myself! I was honored to be asked to write an article for their June/July Issue!

FULL ARTICLE: How to be “ModestlyHot” When It’s Hot! 

Here comes the bright, hot, sun, and now we know the summer season has officially begun!

Temperatures are rising, and modest girls everywhere are breaking a sweat, literally! Summer means saying goodbye to our beloved cardigans and our layering fashions, but fret not as a modest fashion blogger I am here to share with you my tips and tricks on staying “ModestlyHot” when it’s hot! So join me in putting away our long sleeved cardigans, because it’s much too hot for that, and we can all agree that sweating is not a cute look on anyone!

 

Tip #1: Say YES to the Dress(es)!

Loose maxi dresses, t-shirt dresses,and midi dresses are all going to be our best friends in the summer season! Make sure to find dresses that already have a ¾ length sleeve or short sleeves, so that no additional layering is needed!

ModestlyHot PRO Tip: Stand out from the rest by adding a pop of color with a fabulous statement necklace! Belts are also a great accessory for added color, and to cinch that waist!

Tip #2: It’s time to tie the knot! (with Chambray & Button downs)

Oh what would we do without you chambray! A classic wardrobe staple that transitions throughout seasons so seamlessly! This summer look like a fashion trendsetter by simply tying your chambray/button down shirts in a knot!

ModestlyHot PRO Tip: To tie the perfect knot leave 3-4 buttons, unbuttoned, and gather your shirt 2 inches above your natural waist!

Skirt Extenders are a must have for summer! They provide modest coverage for those “almost long enough” dresses! In addition to adding 3-4 inches they add a cute and frilly detail to your skirts and dresses!

Modest “Dorothy Inspired” Outfit Featuring Shop Blets & Closet Clean Out Announcement!

Hello and Happy Tuesday to you!!

It is that time of the semester again….. *dun dun dun* FINALS WEEK! I feel as though I just got here on campus! Spring semester just flew by!! I just finished 4 finals and feel pretty good about them so far! 3 more to go and the semester is over and it is time to fly back to Utah for summer break! I have many long awaited plans that I will be working on this summer that I cannot wait to share with you all!

But for the meantime enjoy some random snapshots of what I have been up to for the past 2 weeks! During the busy time of college I still enjoy connecting with you all through SnapChat! Make sure to add me @Modestly.Hot and I will add you back!

As a college student a universal fact that we can all relate to is that we are always hungry at any given point of the day! The problem is that we have on average about 5-10 minutes in between classes, so a quick grab-n-go snack is a must! I did not plan on making this a “DIY” but since it is pretty simple to make why not?!

For these White Chocolate Energy Bites you only need 2 ingredients:

  1. Your favorite Trail Mix (Premium Sunkist Trail Mix is by far THE BEST trail mix I have ever tried! One of my biggest pet peeves is trail mix with more filler ingredients than actual fruits and quality nuts (almonds and cashews only please)!
  2. Wilton White Chocolate Melting Chips 

Instructions: 

All you do is melt the white chocolate chips in a microwavable bowl. Next, take a spoon and drop a dollop of chocolate and spread it out evenly in a circle. Finally, take your trail mix and distribute it quickly before it dries! And that is it! Super easy and great to just grab it and go!

Now onto today’s outfit with a little inspiration from Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz!

Blue, polkadots, and cute frilly layering tops featuring Shop Blets! 

This shirt was sent to me by the fabulous ladies at Shop Blets to try out and review for you guys! I chose the “Tik Tak” Layering Tee because 1. I needed a basic white shirt but with a more feminine twist and 2. There are a variety of ways to wear this layering tee whether by itself or under a sleeveless shirt/dress!

The detailing and quality of this shirt is what makes this top superior than let’s say a regular white tee. The shoulders have delicate petals and the cut/material is made to fit you seamlessly taking “arm candy” to another level!

Summer is coming and you will definitely see this layering tee as an essential part of my summer wardrobe!

Let’s be honest nobody wants to wear a long sleeved cardigan in the heat of the summer but for modesty purposes we are forced to. But not to worry Shop Blet’s has got us #modestgirls covered with their lightweight, layering tees!

And here’s some more good news!! Shop Blets is offering ModestlyHot followers %15 OFF their famous layering Tees! I would definitely hurry and snag one for yourself before summer hits!

How to Style a Tulle Skirt: Plaid & Tulle! Featuring Taralynns Boutique🍁🍃🍂✨🍂🍃🍁✨🍂🍃🍁✨🍂🍃🍁

Hello and Happy Sunday!!🎉🎉 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 price💸 One is $2 and the other is $14! I bet you can guess which one I like more now 😉 

   

 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!! 🙌🏻 

   
    
 
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 😉 (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! 😉😊 

God Bless,

Xoxo

Ashley💕
