For this summery outfit I decided to pair it up with my new favorite skirt from Taylored Fashions!  I’m already thinking of 101 outfit ideas for yellow striped skirt!! The material is uber strong and of great quality with slight stretch. You know a skirt is made with quality by just the weight of it.

Tuesdays are so much better than they are #tuesdayshoesday!

And my, my these floral JustFab wedges have some history to them! I bought them almost a year and a half ago and I kept them in their box and totally forgot all about them! Lesson learned shoes in their box is no go for me!

Floral, bows and wedges? Yeah I could stand waling in these all day long!

Pink Modest Floral Dress Featuring Indigo & Sage + GIVEAWAY!!!

Ready, Set? Floral!

If you have been following me for even a short period of time, you know my favorite kind of print (besides anchor print) is a feminine floral!

img_0879

This dress is especially one of my favorites because the dress resembles that of an artist sketching out a flawless floral scenery with watercolors!

The detail of the brush strokes and complimentary colors make this floral dress unique!

Indigo and Sage is an online boutique based in Utah (Yeah home town pride!)  and asked me to review and style this dress for you guys! Of course I accepted!

img_0849 (1)img_0851img_4067

On a side note can I just express how grateful I am to be able to share my beliefs and ideas on such a creative platform as this? I am truly blessed to call you all my brothers and sisters in Christ, and the amount of encouragement you give me daily is something I genuinely appreciate!

img_0849 (1)

I added to this dress my Peek A Boo Chic  Cream crochet layering slip to add a frill to the already girly print! Plus it is better to be safe than sorry when it comes to modesty!

img_0855

I also added my infamous GoJane Hot Pink studded heels  and a five strand pearl necklace for even more fancy schmacy details!

Now looking at the elements of this outfit I guess you could categorize it as a “modern Grandma” revamp inspired outfit! Crochet, lace, floral and pearls in a modern yet still modest outfit that I’m sure Grandma would approve!

 

Oh you guys I cannot wait to share something spectacular that happened this week!

 

Keep scrolling………

 

 

You’re almost there!

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.”

img_4442

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!

How to Style a Skirt Extender: Navy & Floral Summer Dress Featuring I Shop Simply + GIVEAWAY!

Too short?  Too tight?  Too sheer?

Trust me ladies, being a modest girl in this era is difficult with all the revealing cutouts, mini length skirts, and crop tops galore surround our malls and stores nationwide.

But there is hope lovelies!! (this is starting to sound like a sermon) 😉

Two words that will change your shopping experience forever……

SKIRT EXTENDERS!

img_4102

I have talked about skirt extenders in the past before, and they truly are so versatile in not only just adding length to skirts and dresses, but for anything too tight and sheer!

PLUS, they add a feminine frill at the hem!

Summer calls for anything floral, and the “Katie ” dress from I Shop Simply is made out of  a breathable fabric that will cool you off this summer season! Plus it’s a steal at only $24.99! I can totally see the navy color transitioning well into the fall season simply by adding a trench coat/cardigan!

 

img_4076

I decided to add my Peek A Boo Chic skirt extender to add a shabby chic crochet hem at the bottom of the dress! So cute right?!

 

img_4100

img_4065

img_4077

img_4074

Just a heads up the fit on this dress runs small so order a size up! I am wearing a size Medium 😉 I love that it has short sleeves and the fact that is has slight stretch!

Modest, cute and comfy? Sign me up!

I love I Shop Simply because of the fact that they carry the trendy boutique items without the big boutique prices!

img_4059

How gorgeous are these nude/cognac lace up heels from Just Fab?! They literally go with anything and are a summer essential shoe! Not to mention that they are SO easy to walk in!

Blush, Floral, Pink & Pleats Featuring Shop Sevan + GIVEAWAY!

Happiest of Tuesdays Lovelies!! Happy 2nd Day of Summer!

To celebrate summer I thought I would recreate a modest boho inspired look.

img_0811

Lace, pink, pleats and a stunning  floral crown from MauLoa Floral Designs  to complete my modest bohemian outfit!

I absolutely love this custom made floral crown from MauLoa Floral Designs!  I gave her my vision on what I wanted it to look like and she totally created it my dream floral crown!

img_0784

I scored this dainty lace top from Ross about a week ago for just $15!  I checked my local Ross again, and they got another shipment in of theses boho inspired baby doll tops also in the color blush pink! (Totally on my wanted list!)

Ross is just a super fun store in which all my expectations are exceeded every single time!

Seriously, Ross does clearance aisles the best!

Shop Sevan is a new local boutique I am completely obsessed it! The boutique is run by the cutest couple Evan and Sara Johnson hence the cute name “Sevan”! (Get it? Sarah+Evan=SEVAN)

img_4013

I am enamored with this chiffon, pleated maxi skirt because, it is completely modest and fully lined! I love when skirts do not require an additional layering slip ESPECIALLY in the summer heat! Thanks Shop Sevan!!

img_0772 (1)img_0773 (1)img_0775 (1)img_0777 (1)

Okay, these chunky, cognac, lace up heels from Just Fab are simply divine! The size of the heel make them uber comfortable to walk and trot all day in them without the pain!

img_0786

You know what time it is! ACCESSORY TIME! 

For the longest time I have been longing for a fold over leopard clutch and I finally found one from Taralynn’s Boutique!! It is the “purrfect” clutch that surprisingly holds all of my odds and ends! Think of it as a condensed Mary Poppins bag 😉

Funny “ModestlyHot Mishap”  (as my brother tends to call my blogger behind the scenes happenings) as me and Mildred (my friend and also photographer) were driving to our photoshoot location, I receive an email from Esprit Raw Flowers, a local Utah floral shop who provided the flower arrangements for this photoshoot! I was more than thrilled to be have such GORGEOUS fresh, cut flowers part of this shoot! A big THANK YOU to Esprit Raw Flowers!

P.S. did y’all notice the new wispy bangs? lol I have yet to get used to having hair near my face at all times, but I really like the way they frame my face.

Happy National Donut Day! Donut Print Midi Skirt Outfit!

AshleySLCLibrary-82.jpgI’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart! Where? Down in my heart! Where?

(All you church kids know exactly what I’m talking about  #sundayschool lol)

But more importantly why? Because for one, it is Friday, and twooooo….

it’s *wait for it*

NATIONAL DONUT DAY!

Do you know how many years I have missed this cutesy “holiday”?! Too many!

It would always roll around at the most unexpected time for me, and lo and behold social media would have me feeling quite left out, BUT not this year! I purposely wrote it down on my blogger calendar! #committed lol

As I was browsing through the internet I found the history behind donut day:

National Doughnut Day, or National Donut Day – celebrated in the United States of America, is on the first Friday of June each year, succeeding the Doughnut Day event created by The Salvation Army in 1938 to honor those of their members who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I.

Doughnut_Dollies_1918_France.jpg

Salvation Army volunteers traveled overseas to set up service huts located in abandoned buildings near the front lines where they could serve baked goods to soldiers during World War I. Isn’t it neat how the small things like delivering donuts can brighten someone’s day, just goes to show us when things are done out of love, and with a servant’s heart, God uses and blesses it when we chose to do everything in love!

1 Corinthians 16:14

“Let all your things be done with charity.”

tip#4 Midi skirt fever

I literally have no words for this skirt except for YES!!

A big fat YES! Now I know what you’re thinking “You bought that skirt just for National Donut Day.” And why yes, yes I did! LOL

Funny story: I was just about to miss National Donut Day AGAIN, so I purchased this super darling donut print skirt from Amazon and luckily for me it qualified for Prime 2-Day shipping! Quick shameless plug: Amazon Prime is the best next thing to WiFi! Amazon prime student is amazing for free 2 day shipping on textbooks! Yes I’m talking to you procrastinating college student who orders their textbooks days before classes start! (GUILTY!) Amazon prime video, prime music, and even prime pantry (awesome way to never run out of daily essentials again!) are just some of the awesome benefits that come included with the membership!

My inspiration came from a vintage donut shop with soft hues of mint, blush and white.

AshleySLCLibrary-75AshleySLCLibrary-77

If you follow me on Snapchat (#candid Modestlyhot lol) you know how freaked out (in the best way possible) I was at the quality of the donuts in the skirt! I was expecting something subpar to be perfectly honest, but to my surprise it really is a good quality skirt!

I prefer shopping at Amazon for their lightning speed in the shipping department!

AshleySLCLibrary-78

AshleySLCLibrary-79I ordered a size up from a small because these are Asian sizes, and I have learned my lesson the hard way. The donut print skirt has a defined waistband, with big box pleating all throughout the skirt. It features a side zipper that I would be EXTREMELY careful when zipping it up, as it seems it could break at any given time. My roomate, Linla can testify to the fact that me and zippers don’t have a good track record! I ALWAYS find a way to break them, but thankfully she fixes them for me, it all works out.

Verse of the Day:

1 Corinthians 13:1-2, 13

King James Version (KJV)

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

Verse 13:

And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

Love,

Happy Tuesday! Summer fashion is just about to kick into gear and you better believe that I will be bringing out all my nautical/anchor pieces!

img_2443

img_2433

I cannot commence to explain why this is one of my favorite trends of all time!

The color navy this year has by far been my favorite color! (Sorry pink!) It is so classy and elegant, and the color combinations with navy are endless! Navy is the new black!

I recently became  Taralynn’s Boutique new clothing representative! I am so grateful about this opportunity to be part of their team of representatives!

They recently sent me this GORGEOUS red striped midi skirt to review for you guys!

I already own their classic black and white striped midi skirt (still a fav!) and was dying to acquire a red and white one especially for a nautical inspired outfit!

d770740ddd1fbad2fadbb12ab214d67b

This beautiful midi skirt is completely modest, has perfect pleats, and is made to last!

My outfit inspiration came from Pinterest from Rachel Parcell , whose style I adore!! I had the pleasure of meeting her and her sister Emily Jackson for the first time last year at the Sperry Event! She truly has a sweet spirit along with an amazing sense of style! (Lol don’t mind my Disney inspired outfit! I had a photoshoot that day and had no time to change!)

I realize this could be a great 4th of July outfit, but I couldn’t wait any longer to wear it!

My top was purchased second hand from Poshmark in a size XS, originally from Cynthia Rowley!

This top has a classy anchor print all over it, with three anchor printed buttons on the shoulders for a nice nautical detail!

img_2446img_2431img_2437

And a white teardrop statement necklace to top it all off!

img_2420img_2430img_2426

img_2432

Navy, red, white, cognac, and anchors complete this preppy nautical outfit!

I would highly suggest to invest in these striped midi skirts from Taralynn’s Boutique!

You will have so many endless combinations with these skirts and the best part is that they are made with quality to last!

img_2449img_2448

Well that time has come darlings where I have to say goodbye for now, but will be back tomorrow with more modest outfit inspirations for you girls!

God Bless!

XOXO,
