🇱🇷Modest Fourth of July Outfit Inspiration 🇱🇷

Hello and Happy Fourth Everyone! 😊💙

Wooo I barely made the cut this year for Fourth of July outfits! (It always gets crazy busy toward the end of June/beginning of July!) 

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! 

Outfit #1: Stars, Stripes, Dots & Tulle 

  • Patriotic Sweater: Poshmark
  • White Tulle Skirt: Taralynn’s Boutique 
  • Polka Dot Heels: Shoedazzle (last season) 

Outfit #2 Polkadots & Stripes 


  • Navy Polkadot Blouse: DownEast 
  • Red striped Midi Skirt: Taralynn’s Boutique 
  • Red Bow Heels: JustFab 

Outfit #3 Anchors & Stripes 

If you haven’t already noticed this red striped Midi skirt makes Fourth of July outfits that much cuter since it resembles the stripes on our flag🇱🇷

Modest Summer Trend Guide 2017 How to dress trendy & modest in summer!

Let’s be honest ladies, summer is the hardest season to stay modest and covered while not roasting alive in the heat!

I feel ya!

So I have compiled a guide on how to rock summer hottest trends while staying cute and covered! (You can store away your cardi’s ladies!)

**You’ll definitely want to keep scrolling 😉 **

 Summer Trends 2017: Everything Embroidered!

Feminine, Floral, & Fringe Embroidered Kimonos

FullSizeRender 9

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.

FullSizeRender 16 Oh and did I mention that my kimono is actually on sale for $9.99 right now?! #YAS

Summer Trend 2017: Dainty Layered Necklaces & Wood Accessories

FullSizeRender 12

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)

Modest in Red, White & Blue! 4th of July Outfits Look Book!

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!

I wrote it all in caps so you could feel the excitement I have !!

I am so excited for tomorrow because its one of my favorite holidays ever!!! 4th of July of course!!

IMG_2979

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!

So let’s get on to the lookbook!

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!!

IMG_2948

IMG_2951

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!!

IMG_2947

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.

IMG_2954

IMG_2952

This is a great look for the office while still being patriotic and festive!

IMG_2957

For my last look I wore my chevron midi skirt paired up with my .. yep you guessed it! My Anchor top!

LOL! This top I just HAD to get even though I probably had a similar one purchased last year from Rue!

But come on now, does this not resemble J.Crew?! and for just $7!

IMG_2983

IMG_2975

IMG_2976

I love how this outfit just works despite being very different patterns!

I kept my shoes neutral since there was alot going on!

IMG_2985-0

IMG_2978

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!

IMG_2986

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

IMG_2997

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

IMG_2991

Well I hope you didn’t mind the extremely long post!

Have a safe and Happy Fourth of July!!!

God Bless You!

XOXO,

Ashley

Retro Cherry Dress Featuring Retro Betty ! +GIVEAWAY

Hello and Happy Monday!!!

Fourth of July is this week and what better way to kick off the week than with a retro 1950’s inspired outfit?!? I love a good retro inspired outfit as much as the next person but man this dress though?!😍

IMG_2877

Red cherries? Check! A line? Check! Vintage? Check!! I am in LOVE!!!

I went to a darling Utah shop called Retro Betty and the shop is absolutely a vintage lovers dream!😍

For all you Utah locals I will list the address of the shop down below! Take your camera! There’s so much cuteness to photograph!

IMG_2880

How cute is this little diner?!? You would never guess that this diner was located in the middle of a mall?! Lol

IMG_2876

Me and the lovely Mildred (photographer) went to non other than Johnny Rockets ! Ugh you guys I want my house to look like this!!! Lol

IMG_2872

One of summers hottest trends right one is Fruit prints!🍒🍍🍎🍓🍋 I love incorporating new trends with classic styles & I feel like this dress channels both perfectly ! 🍒

IMG_2873

How cute are these cat eye sunglasses from Forever 21?!? A steal at just $3

IMG_2879-0

To make this dress modest on top I wore my favorite modest hack ; my cupcake cover top!

This top is great because it only gives you the coverage you need, which is up top and the sleeves! Very lightweight and looks part of the dress and not “awkward”, if you know what I mean!

For a hot summer day, I felt covered but not melting! Lol

IMG_2878-0

IMG_2875

For my shoes I wore my favorite retro heels I purchased from Poshmark for just $14!!

I thought it would be fun to mix 2 vintage prints in one look!

IMG_2883

IMG_2881

IMG_2882

A little touch up! Lol the heat was real!

IMG_2889

Guess what time it is?!? Sundae time!! Lol funny story as I was ordering the sundae (mainly for photos lol) I asked the man how it looked and if it was cute!  He looked at me with the most confused look I have ever seen! (Sorry I’m a blogger and we’re just weird like that! ) I explained to him what I was up to and he finally understood lol! And then he confused me! He said ,”alright would you like cheese on top of your sundae?” 😳 I’m sorry what? Cheese? As in queso? C-H-E-E-S-E on a sundae? LOL

i was tempted to try it but for the pictures I unfortunately had to decline. (Unfortunately .😜)

IMG_2886

No cheese on this sundae just a cheesy smile!😜 ha ha ha ha … (Wow I need to stop….)
