Behind “The Look”:

This skirt is so well made and screamed to be paired up with rich and expensive looking tones such as a classy mustard! i did not want to take away anything from this gorgeous skirt and because it already has so many vibrant colors, I chose to tone it down with a retro inspired mustard top.

A plain white tee or even a dark navy will take this skirt to the next level of classiness! Very versatile and can work with so many different tops!

Retro Daisy Circle Skirt Outfit Featuring Florence Adam Store!

Happy Tuesday Lovelies!!

Long time no blog post! To say I’ve missed you guys is an understatement! Seriously! We’ve survived mid-term week and are all geared up for The hunt on Easter Sunday!

Here are a couple of snapshots during these past couple of weeks! Enjoy!

Me: I need a quiet place to study…

*sees a huge box to the left*

Me: Excellent… lol

Nursery: My excuse to act like a 5 year old again with no questions asked! LOL

Now onto today’s 60’s- 70’s ”ish” inspired outfit featuring one of my favorite circle skirts from Florence Adams Store!

img_1010

Today’s outfit was inspired by a little bit of 60s and 70s fashion!

The daisy print on my skirt resembles that of the 60s but the colors and the style of my blouse lean more toward the 70s! I actually scored this awesome brown vintage blouse from a local thrift store back at home in Utah!

 

img_0996img_0997

I added cognac colored accessories to finish off this look! Just a quick side note if you do not own a cognac colored belt I would highly suggest one as an addition to any wardrobe!

Its a staple and a classic for sure! It will literally class up any outfit and if you have cognac colored boots/ shoes that’s a bonus!!

For hair I wanted soft tousled curls that wold be away from my face. All I did was take my curling wand and tilted it down and away from my face just for a few seconds, release the curl and gently run your fingers through it! Super easy and it literally takes about 10 minutes!

img_1004

It was ferociously windy out today in Lancaster which made for a very chilly morning! (Not the best day to wear a circle skirt I must admit but I somehow managed to stay indoors for the most part of the day! lol)

Hello and Happy Tuesday Lovelies!!

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day! I had a blast crafting up theses cute minion inspired twinkies for my room mates that read ” You’re one in a minion” LOL

Kinda cheesy but it was super cute!

 

img_0420

 

Here are some of my Valentine’s Day inspired outfits, I was planning on getting more up but alas college assignments just picked up this week! *yikes* Prayers are highly appreciated!

img_0435Β Β Β How cute is this ASOS Lip Print Blouse?! Quick confession ever since I’ve gotten this shirt I’ve only worn it twice and both of those times were on Valentine’s Day!

img_0434Β img_0544

I am so excited for today’s outfit featuring the ”Ibiza Skirt” from Mindy Mae’s Market!

It was a happy day when I received this skirt in the mail yesterday because 1. Packages are always exciting 2. It was from Utah! and 3. It was a GORGEOUS watercolor floral skirt! eek! so exciting !

This stunner was designed byΒ Ampersand AvenueΒ ! I discovered them through Mindy Mae’s Market a while ago on Instagram and instantly fell in love with their sense of fashion! They’re super popular on Pinterest too! Their quality is aways top-notch and I’ve never had any problems with sizing!

I have recently been loving anything to do with preppy chic stationary and this watercolor skirt gives off a bit of a Kate Spade vibe don’t ya think? I can totally see this print on a cute notebook with an ”awe-inspiring”, borderline cheesy quote on the cover! LOL Okay but no really how chic and colorful is this skirt?! I’m in love. Enough said.

img_0573img_0575

I can envision this skirt with a plain white tee or even a cute chambray top but I was feeling very peppy today and went all out! (I blame the weather! it was absolutely gorgeous today on campus! :D)

img_0582img_0585

Watercolors, Florals and Hot Pink studded heels? Yes Please!

πŸ’•Mint, Pink &Polkadots! +GIVEAWAY from Let’s Be Modest Shop!πŸ’•

Hello lovelies!!πŸ˜πŸ’• 

Happy  Saturday to you! 

I’m so excited to share today’s outfit post and there’s also going to be a giveaway so stay tuned til the end! 

    

I was feeling a abut colorful today and went for my favorite color combo; pink and mint!πŸ˜πŸ’•πŸ’• 

  It’s been such a gorgeous past few days here in LancasterπŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸŒ» The weather is cooling down, but it still feels like summer! I’m pretty used to cold weather back home in Utah  so when people say it’s “cold”here and it’s only 70 degrees I can’t help but be grateful that’s their coldest temp around here ! ⛄️❄️    
I will say this though the winds are fierce!πŸ’¨ When I first came here I thought it was going to be difficult to be modest because of the heat, but actually the Lancaster winds make modesty 100x difficult ESPECIALLY if you like to wear full A-line  skirts!πŸ™†πŸ»  But I do enjoy a challenge I must say! #bringitlancasterwinds πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ’¨ 

  
I did a little subtle pattern mixing today because it’s Saturday and it just feels right! LOL 

I adore a gorgeous quatrefoil print!! I finally found what my scarfs print was called!! Haha! One day at JoAnn’s I was trying to explain to the fabric lady that this fabric was really popular and had a funky four square design! (Pretty clear huh?) She looked at me with that blank stare people give you when they think you’ve completely lost your mind! 

After that interesting fabric hunt fail I was more determined than ever to find the name of that design so I did a little Google image search with the fabric and bam! Here is the proper  definition: 

Quatrefoil:

an ornamental design of four lobes or leaves as used in architectural tracery, resembling a flower or four-leaf clover. 

Well you learn something new everyday! 

Let’s talk about this scarf for a second!!πŸ˜πŸ’•πŸ’™ Not only is it a gorgeous quatrefoil print with a stunning mint color, BUT it has a secret compartment zipper where you can stash your cash, card or lipgloss!😱 

   
 Mind. blown.πŸ’£πŸ’£πŸ’£ 

This scarf is perfect for a day like this because when you’re out soulwinning (door knocking inviting people to church!) you need to have your hands free! I will definitely be storing my scan card,iPhone and some cash! πŸ“±πŸ’³πŸ’° 

GENUIS! 

This cute scarf will be part of today’s giveaway thanks to Let’s Be Modest Shop!!  

You’ve been patient and have made it near the end of the blog post! I think that deserves a giveawayπŸ˜‰ 

Alright girlies me and the awesome ladies at Lets Be Modest Shop are teaming up to bring you a chance to win a gorgeous quatrefoilmint stash scarf!

Hello friends!!!

Happy 100th Post!!! I woke up to a WordPress notification that ModestlyHot has written 100 posts today!

There isn’t anything else I’d rather do than to create content and share it with you guys!!

Shoutout to all you faithful blog followers that keep sticking with me (even though I ramble at times lol)! A standing ovation to all of you!

So Saturdays are meant for shopping right ladies? And by shopping I totally mean online shopping! No waiting in lines, sore feet, or spending more money than anticipated!

So without further ado, let’s get on with the shoes!!

IMG_4709

So for these first three pairs of shoes I actually went to the mall and stumbled across a hot shoe sale! πŸ˜‰

All the shoes were on clearance for just $5.99!!!

IMG_4694

IMG_4698

Immediately I gasped and said, ”CINDERELLA SHOES!” They have a gorgeous double t-strap heels with these cool glitter holographic print all over the shoes!

I couldn’t resist picking up the gold pair as well!

IMG_4700

IMG_4702

IMG_4705

IMG_4706

Can you say Valentino?! I love these rockstud sandals that very much resemble Valentino!

I fell in love with the red stud details, and the vibrant color!

Now onto the online purchases!! Let’s start with ShoeDazzle !

IMG_4509

GASP!!! Am I dreaming ?! Is this real life?!! These shoes are the total Princess package!! ❀

They kind of remind me of Kate Middleton or Princess Diana!

IMG_4589

The style of these shoes are the ”Lennox” style and is everything you’d want for a special occasion!

IMG_4686

IMG_4687

Hello Gorgeous! I was beyond thrilled when I opened up the pink ShoeDazzle box and saw these adorable spring wedges!!

I am not a huge fan of wedges, but I couldn’t resist these beauties!

IMG_4688

IMG_4689

IMG_4683

If you answered;

Who is Minnie Mouse?

You are totally spot on!

And they’re actually called the ”Minnie” on Shoedazzle’s site!

IMG_2605

I also picked up another pair of the ”Minnie” shoe in a soft baby blue gingham print!

πŸ‚πŸŒ»Modest Teal & Leopard Skirt Outfit featuring Jupe De Abby!πŸŒ»πŸ‚

Hello Friends!! 

Boy we’re already coming to the weekend!πŸ™ŒπŸ» Seems like yesterday it was just Sunday at church and now it’s time to do it all over once again!! 

So I as coming from my classes I went ahead and checked my mail and you won’t believe what arrived!!😱 

  
Just in time for fall!!πŸ‚πŸπŸƒ

This stunning aline leopard ball gown midi skirt! πŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ’›

Immediately when I saw it I knew it was going to be on repeat for several  outfit posts! 

 
I couldn’t help but wear it the same week I got it! (No shame in that lol) 

Now I realize I could go so many different routes with this skirt but I decided on wearing a teal blouse with gold accent buttons on the shoulders from Ross! 

*side note* I 100% recommend you purchasing a few of these dressy colored blouses! Check your Ross every week when they rotate inventory (ask your store manager what day of the week that is) to find these hidden gems! You can find them as low as $4-5 each! 

Such great staples in my wardrobe!

   
  

Now back to the skirt! You girls are in luck the skirts at Jupe de Abby are for the most part under $30 and they’re having a fall sale on their site!! πŸ™ŒπŸ» just use the code: Sept15 for even MORE savings! ❀️

  
  
“Leopard is a Neutral” 

I love the color combo of mint/teal and leopard! I wore my white flower statement necklace from Walmart (who knew Walmart could have such cute necklaces!) and my Justfab Cognac Wedges!  
   
   
You’ll probably be seeing this skirt on replay in the coming weeks because it is so versatile and goes with everything!

Well that wraps up today’s post!

Have a great weekend and I’ll chat with you next time!

God Bless,

Ashley❀️
