🇱🇷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!

Cobalt & Damask Print Midi Skirts! Featuring Modestly Dressed Boutique

Happy Sunday fellow skirt sisters!

I feel the need to update you on so much that has been going on this past week!

We had a blast going to Zion National Park to go hike the infamous “Narrows”!

Hiking and shopping are my two all-time favorite past times!

Look at how stunning God’s creation is!! It is pretty neat to get out of the city and just take in fresh air, stunning views, and a rest for a few days.

Stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.

Job 37:14

Today’s church outfit consists of a classy damask/paisley print paired up with touches of cobalt blue!

The skirt I am loving is from a custom designed modest clothing boutique “Modestly Dressed Boutique!” 

She literally made this gorgeous skirt by hand AND it has POCKETS!

(Can we all agree that all skirts should come with pockets?!)

What skirts with pockets mean to me:

  1. A place to put my awkward hands!
  2. I can carry a lippie with me to retouch at any given moment
  3. The quality of a skirt immediately goes up with the simple integration of pockets!

The ”Melissa Pleated Midi Skirt” has a thick waistband to create an illusion of a smaller waist, and the large box pleats make it that much more classier!

ModestlyHot PRO tip: Invest in a good quality black and white printed skirt because the outfit possibilities are endless! It will match with a variety of colors, prints and patterns! Black and white is a must, perfect for all seasons and is absolutely timeless.

I adore this Rue 21 Sparkle Bib Necklace! It transforms any outfit from simple to stunning by just wearing it over anything! The bigger the statement necklace, the better!

I just wanted to take some time and thank you all for being so supportive during these past few weeks and actually during these past 2 years! You all are so sweet and encouraging me whether it’s on IG, Snapchat or email! You literally have the best timing! #ModestlyHotfamily Hooray for 27k Followers!

Have a blessed Sunday!

God Bless,

Ashley Amber

Watercolor Floral Friday & GIVEAWAY!! Featuring Sierra Brooke Clothing!

Happy Friday Ladies!!

Can you believe June is fast approaching next week?! I certainly cannot!

If you follow me on my Instagram  @ModestlyHot you already know that many exciting changes are taking place regarding my logo, website, and business cards!

I am beyond THRILLED with the outcome! The logo is so me! Gold, Glitter, and a soft, blush pink for a more sleek and modern logo for the website ! {COMING SOON!}

Believe it or not, it was my dad’s idea to have my business cards printed in gold foiling! He is a strong believer in that a business card should be a quality card that someone actually wants to keep. I couldn’t agree more! Thank you all for the wonderful feedback received on these changes, and I hope to serve you ladies better with the new website I am working on.

So since it is Friday, and it’s a beautiful day out, I think floral would be just fitting for a day like today! Today, I will be reviewing the awesome modest clothing company Sierra Brooke ! I am sure you ladies have heard of them before as they were one of the first modest shops I have encountered. Don’t you just love shopping at websites that you need not to worry about hemlines being too short, clothing being too tight etc? I certainly do!

CAUTION: THE FOLLOWING OUTFIT IS BRIGHT  lol

img_3015

Oh yes! When it comes to color I tend not to hold anything back really. Summer is just around the corner, and I think we can all agree that summer is awesome, bright, and cheerful, so why can’t our outfits reflect that too? LOL #bloggerlogic

Watercolor print has been all the rage this year, whether it would be on notebooks, planners, clothing, or cute quotes, its no wonder I want everything watercolor! (I ultimately blame Kate Spade though 😉

The skirt I am wearing is in a size small and it features a stretchy waistband (love that!)

The print is an array of gorgeous, ultra bright colors that scream spring and summer season!

img_2996img_2998

On a side note: How fun are these Rue 21 Neon yellow studded heels? I purchased them last summer, and am still loving how bold and bright they are, yet they still embody classiness with the style of the shoe.

img_3007

Now let’s talk about accessories! A classy yellow 7 flower statement necklace was added for even more floral, feminine detailing, and a pop of color against my hot pink blouse.

img_2999

Fun Fact: This rosette statement necklace is where my collecting of statement necklaces all began! I believe it was 3 years ago, when J.Crew came out with these stunning necklaces that every blogger/Instagrammer had to have! Well, a quick search on Poshmark scored me my very first rosette statement necklace, and the obsession grew to acquire just about every single color to my collection!

P.S. A hair tutorial on this “Princess Half-Half Down” hair-do will be up next week, so keep an eye out for that! Thank you to all who requested it, seeing as it is my favorite go-to hairstyle that goes with every outfit!

img_2982

Since it’s Friday, and I love this skirt so much I was talking to Sierra Brooke and they thought it would be a great idea to share the love with you guys, and give you a chance to win this fabulous modest midi skirt!

Summer Style Trends: Nautical Inspired Modest Outfit featuring Taralynn’s Boutique!

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!

img_2456

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!

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,

Ashley Amber

Easter & Spring Florals Skirt Outfit!

Yay Friday!! Can’t wait for Easter weekend! It’s definitely going to be a busy one to say the least! It seemed like everyone on campus today was ready for Easter, sporting their floral, pastels and spring ready attire!

img_1054

Fun Fact: These pictures were actually taken at 6:45am this morning hence why they have a gold colored lighting to them, also known as the ”golden hour” for photography apparently. It is sad to admit but the hours from 4am-6am are the only hours I can put effort into anything other than college! Which is why you guys are so awesome for sticking around and visiting my blog! Totally appreciate it!! I want to do so much more but I have to remind myself to make ”bite-sized goals.

I just cannot get enough of this skirt! 😀

It is flowy and comfy like a maxi skirt, but glamorous and girly like a ball gown!

Oh and did I mention it has pockets?!! Yes Please!

snapseed-2img_1031

I decided on wearing just a simple basic black top to balance out the volume on the skirt!

The floral print on this skirt is so feminine and lady-like that call for a set of classy pearls!

Well that does it for today’s post! Hope you have an awesome Easter weekend!!

How To Style A Blanket Scarf! Modest Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas!

Hello Friends!!

Finally the trees decided to change colors and the leaves were looking gorgeous on the ground! My most favoritest (yes that’s a word now) season ever is Fall, and being from Utah I am used to seeing Autumn in full colorful force! I was totally okay with moving to California for Bible College UNTIL my mom told me that there would be no fall over here because there were basically no trees! (just Joshua trees and palm trees oh and can’t forget about those tumbleweeds #desertlife lol)

At that time it was too late to make a U-turn and head back to Utah! No totally kidding! But today to my surprise the few trees that were on campus were turning colors and the leaves were falling! SCORE!

And in time for thanksgiving! I adore this quote ! An attitude of gratefulness is the key to a happy heart! It’s sometimes easy to take things for granted, even the smallest of things, but once I realize that everything I ”own” is not really mine, but they’re daily blessings from God! Something that has helped me daily, is this quote: ”Whatever happens in my life, whether good or bad, I deserve worse.” Its so true!! God has and will always be merciful even when we don’t deserve!

IMG_6256

IMG_6037

I love me a good blanket scarf! They’re warm, soft, and double as a blanket when you need one!

They literally elevate any outfit and turn it into a fall/holiday outfit! Over the past year they’ve become more affordable! I’ve seen them as low as $8 on Jane.com! (LOVE Jane!)

Look #1: Hunter Green Jersey Dress+ Plaid Blanket Scarf

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I received this Hunter Green Jersey dress from my lovely friends at Kingdom & State! It is a winter must-have! I ADORE the fact that it is a structured jersey dress with strong shoulders for a chic, minimalistic look!

On that day I wore this outfit there were freezing winds! (Hello Lancaster!) I was so thankful that this dress was keeping me warm all day! Not only is it warm, but oh so comfy like pajamas! It was the perfect cozy fall outfit!

IMG_6031IMG_6032IMG_6035IMG_6034

Kingdom and State is offering all you guys a 20% OFF their entire website!

Just by using the code ”ASHLEY20” ! I have linked the dress down below!

Look #2: Blanket Scarf as an open cardigan/ shawl!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I have been meaning to try this Pinterest scarf tip ever since I purchased my blanket scarf! It was so simple! All you do is fold the scarf into a triangle and drape it over your shoulders as a cardigan and belt it! So chic and not to mention extremely cozy! As always cognac accessories are my obsession! This dress is perfect for Thanksgiving because it stretches! LOL

Look #3: Cozy Sweaters, Pleated Cognac Skirts & A Blanket Scarf!

The next outfit was probably one of my favorites for fall! It consisted of rich fall colors and mixtures of textures!

I found the most cozy cream colored sweater in non other than the Walmart aisle! I know I was pretty shocked myself! I would definitely check out the clothing section at Walmart! I have found the cutest skirts and plaid shirts for dirt cheap!

The star of this outfit is none other than this stunning cognac colored pleated leather midi skirt!! EEK! You guys I cannot express how happy I was when I received it in the mail! I have been searching for the longest time ever for a cognac colored skirt and the lovely ladies at Blue Rose Apparel were sweet enough to gift it to me! I am always thrilled to discover new modest clothing sites! Especially when the quality is outstanding like this skirt! I am guilty of never wearing an exact outfit twice but I couldn’t help but to wear this outfit again and in the same week at that too! (shhh don’t tell the fashion police!)

⚫️⚪️✨Black, White Striped Midi Skirt Outfit Featuring Two 12 Fashion✨⚫️⚪️

Hello friends and Happy Thursday!! 

Boy what a week! Tests almost everyday got me feeling exhausted and stressed out but I have to remember to keep calm and dress up because that’s the only way I can relax and enjoy my day lol! 

For today’s outfit I decided on going all monochrome with my new fav belt from Two 12 Fashion!!😍😍✨✨✨

   
 
  
You guys this belt was made for me!!!! Aaah!!!😍✨✨✨🙌🏻 Its gold,AND  it has a bow !! What more could you ask for?!? 

I can see this belt with almost everything I wear! Gold metal bar belts are pretty awesome but that bow just makes it that much more glam!✨😍🙌🏻

   
 
When I saw the belt I knew exactly what I wanted to pair it up with: black , white, and gold for a chic monochrome outfit! 

   
   
This skirt is definitely a classic! It’s from Taralynns Boutique !

It kind of reminds me of the popular Kate Spade striped midi skirt but for 1/3 of the price!! 

   
   
My black solid colored top is from Ross which was on clearance for just $3! Best $3 spent! 

My necklace is from Walmart and let me tell you how thrilled I am that Walmart has gorgeous boutique style necklaces for just $3-$5! 

For shoes I had to wear my Valentino inspired Rockstud heels! They go with every single outfit!🙌🏻😍❤️😉 

  
  
My bag was actually from a local Utah mall and they had a variety of colors: a nude/beige color, a red one and a black one! Knowing myself I knew I was going to dirty up the red and nude one way too quickly so I went for black! 

I adore a good structured bag almost like a satchel that resembles an antique doctor’s bag! 

   
 
For my hair I’m actually quite surprised on how it turned out considering I only did it in 15 minutes! You know those days where you are lazily curling your hair and you know it’s going to be a huge fail but you do it anyways? Well this morning was one of those days! I think what saved the curls was that I used the pin-curl technique. Basically you curl your hair and catch it before it falls in your hand and pin the curls up in a circle just like they did back in the 50s!  

 
Well that wraps up today’s post!! 

Hope you enjoyed it and make sure to keep  smiling today😄❤️ 

God Bless!

Xoxo,

Ashley
