I finally found the PERFECT and MODEST fringe skirt on Poshmark!! No slip needed!

Usually with a fringe skirt the fringe would not be full enough to be modest, however this one not only was a lined skirt, but the fringe was full of beautiful movement!

Oh did I mention that it was only $9?!

img_3426 (1)

Now that’s what I call a fringe skirt! Cannot believe this was a skirt originally from Forever 21! All you Poshmarkers go ahead and follow J’s Closet on Poshmark! Incredibly fast shipping and beautiful clothes! img_3425 (1)

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

 

img_5582

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!

img_5579img_5578

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!

img_5576

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!

GASP #2!!! I am wearing a hat?! Yeah this blog post is full of surprises isn’t it?

Thanks to my dear friend and photographer Mildred aka the expert in trendy hat wear for convincing me to try it out! lol

This beauty I scored at Forever 21, it was pricier than what I am used to paying for an accessory , but the pictures turned out great so I am satisfied!

img_5582

img_5573img_5574img_5584

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 ๐Ÿ˜€ OR DRAB?:(ย 

MOST DEFINITELY FAB!

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

  1. COMFORT: ย 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! ย 
  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 ; )

Til Next Time!

God Bless,

Ashley Amber

๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒท๐Ÿ’›Modest Floral Midi Dress Review Featuring Salty Bae Boutique๐Ÿ’›๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒป

Hello and Happy Tuesday Lovelies! As I looked out my window today I observed the perfect spring day unfold, sunny clear skies, big, fluffy clouds, and birds perching on the trees.

“Oooh, this a great day to wear my spring floral scuba dress!” So I thought.

As I grabbed my purse and headed toward the door, the coldest winter breeze caught me off guard! Yep, it was F R E E Z I N G ! Oh Utah and your “fake sunny” days! Regardless, it feels wonderful to be back in my home state! #beUTAHful

img_1939

img_1936img_1968

Today’s outfit I will review this stunning, modest floral scuba dress from Salty Bae Boutique!

img_1935

Let’s talk about the print! Quick Confession! I simply cannot resist a good floral, polkadot or stripe print! Floral print just sets off something in my brain that draws me to purchase it! It’s a medical condition I promise ๐Ÿ˜‰

img_1965

The colors are the perfect transitional colors from season to season! I can totally see this dress being worn all year round by adding a mustard cardigan and boots in the fall, to wearing it with soft cognac colored accessories for a soft, spring look!

The fit is absolutely fabulous! Not too tight, not too loose, but just right! I think Goldilocks would approve!

img_1940

Hair and Makeup:ย 

For hair and makeup, I decided on using my favorite Essence lipliner in “Soft Berry”.

I recently been into soft, mauve colors on my lips and my blush (E.L.F “Mellow Mauve”)!

It just seems to work with my ivory skin tone more than say a pinker shade of blush/lip!

If you follow me on Snapchat you already know that I used my 24K Gold curling wand from Bombay Hairย to achieve these soft,wavy curls!

 

Now I believe it’s time for a GIVEAWAY!!

Salty Bae Boutique and I have decided to bring you a giveaway of anything of your choosing on Salty Bae’s Website!

To Enter:

  1. Follow @ModestlyHot and @saltybaeboutique on Instagram
  2. Like the picture โค
  3. TAG ALL YOUR FRIENDS! Each friend=1 entry!

Giveaway will end in 48 hours! Thursday, May 12 at Midnight!

Good luck and God Bless!!

Hello and Happy Tuesday Lovelies!!

Kinda cheesy but it was super cute!

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_0435ย ย ย 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_0434ย 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 !
img_0591

This stunner was designed byย Ampersand Avenueย ! 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)

You guys I just love my midi skirts they are the PERFECT length and they flare out beautifully! 

I love this skirt because its a perfect transitioning skirt from summer to fall just by changing the top and some accessories! 

I added my fav fall top must have from Rue 21 which is a gorgeous marsala/burgundy colored crochet top ! It has been an essential for this fall season and not to mention that I scored it on the clearance rack!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿƒ๐ŸBoho Fall Florals! Featuring Adorn It Shoppe๐Ÿ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ‚๐ŸŒปย 

Hello lovelies!!โค๏ธ

Happy Tuesday! Is it just me or are the weeks just flying by?! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Before you know it it’s going to be Christmas! ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ But honestly as much as I love Christmas my ultimate favorite season is for sure Fall!๐Ÿ๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป 

  
  
Okay so let me tell you about this dress from Adorn it Shoppe! ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚!! I was the happiest person ever when I received this in the mail because first of all its from Utah๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป  (so it was nice to have a little bit of home!) and secondly because it’s sooooooooo soft!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‚ 

Seriously like velvet soft!

   
    
   
I’ve seriously been loving the fall floral trend! (Fall floral roundup coming soon!๐Ÿ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ‚) it incorporates summer trends with the rich, warm tones of fall!๐Ÿ 

For this look i really wanted to show my boho side to the max! Bohemian isn’t a style I usually gravitate towards, but sometimes it fun to step outside your comfort zone and try new styles! 

I knew it was key to have a floral headband somewhere in this look! 

Sadly I had left all my floral headbands back home but my awesome roommate Linla let me borrow hers! ๐ŸŒป *fun fact in our dorm hall alone there are 7 twins within three doors of each other!๐Ÿ˜ฑ 

Lol

(Us At the Luau!๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒบ) 

  
Back to the outfit for my hair it was a must to create loose carefree waves!

   
    
 
These waves are so easy I promise! 

For best results you’d want to use a curling wand and mine happens to be the NuMe curling wand -which I ever so love!โค๏ธ I love it even more because it was free-best price in town๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป 

Back when Ipsy was called “My Glam Bag” they gave out NuMe gift certificates for their curling wands!! I chose the three barrel interchangeable one! It comes with a variety barrel sizes that create different hairstyles!LOVEโค๏ธ 

   
    
   
For my makeup I actually tried a tip from GossMakeupArtist on Youtube! Sometimes foundation can tend to look a bit cakey especially if you’re going for a matte look! To make your foundation look more skin like and glowy and healthy you add a just a drop of your favorite oil! Could be jojoba, coconut, tea tree etc! My favorite is actually Bio-Oil I recently picked up for my face! I have heard so many good things about it and I have to say it was worth it! I have noticed some spots on my face getting lighter and my skin looks very glowy!๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

Anyways mix that drop of oil with your foundation and your skin will look healthy and nourished!

  
Gaso! I almost forgot to mention my favorite fall belt ever from Two 12 Fashion!! It’s a gorgeous brown/red brick colored wrap belt! So chic! I love the warmth it gave the dress !

  

Well that wraps up today’s post!

I’ll be back later today with more fall looks!๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒป 

Til Next Time,

God Bless 

Ashley๐Ÿ’•
