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)

Casual and Comfy Modest Outfits! Featuring Sierra Brooke & Deela Couture

Happy Friday! Finals are over and my second fall semester at West Coast Baptist College is officially over and I am beyond excited to be back home in Utah! Looking back from a year ago to my first fall semester God has definitely moved and worked in my heart and I cannot believe how much I have grown since that first semester. This topic deserves a blog post all on its own, but for now I can only express gratitude toward God and my parents for allowing me to attend an institution that still believes in the power of prayer and the Word of God.

Casual Modest Outfit #1: Deela Couture 

During finals week, it is the most stressful time for all of us on campus! Finals week deserves comfy, cute, and no-ironing needed type of dresses! This is why modest swing dresses are the way to go!

img_7761img_7760

I am absolutely obsessed with this black and white modest swing dress from Deela Couture. It is so classy and comfy! I paired up this dress with a classic, country chic, horse bit buckle belt with my cognac chunky heels from Target! Of course I could not forget a floppy wool hat from Walmart!  (DIRECT LINK) Probably the cheapest I have seen them ($10) and they carry them in all sorts of colors!

I love that Deela Couture makes all of their clothing with quality and makes sure that every piece is designed to provide comfort and style! I just had to have this dress!! img_7756

Casual modest Outfit #2: Comfy Fall Floral Striped Dress from Sierra Brooke Clothing

img_7745

I absolutely LOVE this glamorous dress!! The bold stripes, the maroon colors, and the floral print make it one of my favorites!! It is such a unique dress that it is no wonder that it is a hot selling item! img_7752img_7753

The Chelsea dress is very stretchy and I love the fact that the length is modestly long yet not too long where it hits the awkward length! Sierra Brooke is RIGHT NOW offering 10% OFF any purchase by using the code: “SBFRIENDS” at checkout!

It is that time of the year again where I round up modest fashion bloggers to bring you this year’s Modest Disney Style Challenge 2016! This marks the second year ModestlyHot hosts the Modest Disney Princess Look Book ! Join along in the fun by seeing the looks that the other ladies recreated on Instagram, and there will also be Disney themed giveaways all throughout our Disney Week!

img_3306 (1)

Fun Fact #1: Why yes I did indeed climb these rocks with 5 inch heels 😉 Had my friend (photographer) Mildred scared to death! 

Disclaimer: Pretty please do not try this at home! It was not a safe place to be hiking with heels, but a blogger has to get her Pocahontas shots!

img_3349 (1)

DIY Pocahontas Costume Essentials also known as the Pocahontas Starter Kit 😉

Here’s what you will need:

  1. Brown Fringe Skirt
  2. White Top
  3. Straightened Hair
  4. A chunky tribal turquoise necklace
  5. Brown Matte Lipstick (I used the Essence Matte Lip Liner in Soft berry! $2)

img_3289 (1)img_3287 (1)img_3282 (1)

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)

img_3423 (1)

Fun Fact #2: This location was literally 15 minutes away from my home! The perks of living in Utah! We are truly blessed to call this part of Utah’s “backyard”! #BeUtahful
img_3416 (1)

A necklace that makes a statement! Mirina Collections sent me this STUNNING turquoise tribal inspired famous necklace! By far one of my favorites! Where Tribal meets Glamour! img_3332 (1)img_3421 (1)img_3435 (1)

Fun Fact #3: Shoes and Purse are brought you by Target: Expect more, Pay Less, (a lot less 😉

Purse: Clearance $11

FUN FACT #5: Amanda from Aesthically You is the best at Eyelash Extensions in Utah!

I am not just saying that! She truly is very gentle yet effective at her job! My eyelashes can look good as soon as I wake up! What I liked the most about them was the amount of curl they had and they were not heavy at all!

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!

img_5581

GASP!! I am not wearing heels?! What is wrong with me? lol jk!

Hear me out for a second,

Lace up flats,

in Fall colors

at Rue 21

for $8! Go! Now! & Come back and read this post later I won’t get offended at all 😉

Enough said 😉

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 😀 OR DRAB?:( 

MOST DEFINITELY FAB!

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

  1. COMFORT:  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!  
  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

Meet My City Monday: Moab Delicate Arch Hike Featuring Modest Workout Clothing!

img_4572

Hello and Happy Monday!! This month of August has already been go, go, go!

Thank you ALL for immense amount of support on my snapchat, Instagram stories, Facebook and of course my blog! You are all so wonderful to me and I just want to again thank you for it!

img_5265

If you follow me on this “new” platform that Instagram released, “Instagram stories” *ahem Snapchat knockoff* you were able  to see in real time this amazing infamous hike, the delicate arch hike in Moab Utah! I mean there is a reason why this is on our state’s license plates!

img_6193img_6248-1

Me directly under the delicate arch wearing my ModSwim black and white wrap workout dress! img_6239

img_5197img_5195

The delicate arch just around this bend! The most rewarding sight we did see!

We woke up really early in the morning (4:30am to be exact) to be able to watch as the sun was rising over the entire canyon! img_5173

Ta Da! There she is! It was a relatively short hike, however it is uphill all the way and is categorized as “strenuous” hike on the map.

img_6192img_6190img_5250

Definitely worth the early morning rise, since there was a small amount of people on the trail which gave us the opportunity to  enjoy the scenery all on our own!

Silly faces with my brother 😉

img_5261

img_5259

img_6198

Now what did I wear to this hiking trip you may ask?

I sported my favorite modest activewear dress, that’s right I said DRESS from ModSwim! 

You guys I’ll be completely honest with you when I first heard of “modest fitness wear” I was very skeptical as to the overall aesthetic of it. Like, would it look like a potato sack dress from Little House on the Prairie? (Nothing against Little House love that show, but I certainly wouldn’t want to wear their 1800’s fashion ! lol)

\img_5349

I adore this modest workout dress from Mod Swim because it has a gorgeous, flattering wrap style cut, it is made out of breathable fabric, and love that I can go running, biking, jumping, and even swimming in this fab dress!

So say goodbye to your basketball shorts and oversized tee shirt ladies and get ready for a more feminine solution to modest workout clothing!

img_5365

So now I’m about to get real with y’all and since we are all women and have our struggles with our image, I’m sure most of you ladies can relate to what I am about to say!

During my freshman college year I gained the most amount of weight I had ever gained in my life before! They really weren’t kidding about the whole “Freshman 15” thing that’s  for sure!

The over processed food, the all nighters that were pulled for a test the next day, stress, and just flat out not exercising were all causing my rapid weight gain!

I jumped from a size 2 to a size 6! Thankfully I can now again wear my beloved size small midi skirts and fit in my size 2 dresses! Hooray!

img_5368

I knew it had to be stopped before it got out of my control! So I am not in any way, shape or form a fitness expert nor am I anywhere near of where I would like to be, but I will more than gladly share what helped me lose 12 pounds in 2 months!

Since I hear about it all the time at West Coast how the guys have to alliterate their  sermons, I thought I’d give it a go for this blog post! So without further ado, here are the three W’s to my weightloss!

Tip #1: Water!

img_5316-1

Now I know what you’re thinking, and yes it is an obvious tip, but hear me out, studies show that more than 70% of Americans do not drink the sufficient amount of water each day! So what I have found helpful is setting reminder throughout the day to drink water! It is mind blowing how a simple pop up reminder on my phone can engrave in my brain that it is time to drink water!

Here is another of my favorite apps to track how much water I have drank! It is called “Waterlogged” it tracks all of your daily water intake and then rewards you with either a free audiobook, game, or download for free !

Tip #2: Walking! 

img_5313

Walking after dinner, walking after I know I splurged on a sweet I shouldn’t have, or just  walking at the mall has helped me a ton to lose the 12 pounds!

Pacer is an app that I adore because it is a community of regular people who are trying to live a healthier lifestyle who support you by creating and joining groups to walk at least 10,00 steps a day!

You should aim for 10,000 steps a day for weightloss and an overall healthier, active lifestyle!

img_5371

Tip #3: Weighted Jumprope!

img_5373

Hear me out, go to Walmart and buy a weighted jumprope (also known as a boxing jumprope) and jumprope for 15 minutes a day to burn 150 calories!! Amazing and quick cardio!

That’s right you just need to do it 15 minutes a day to burn that many calories! It’s awesome, and you will break a sweat!

P.S. Do not get discouraged if you cannot jump rope the entire 15 minutes in one go, trust me it’s harder than it sounds! Start out by dividing the 15 minutes into 3 five minute segments and work your way up!

img_5308

img_5312img_5317img_5300img_5303

I absolutely loved shooting at East High School, a school you may recognize as part of the set of High School Musical!

img_5350img_5305

I hope you guys didn’t mind this uber long post and if you find these tips helpful let me know!

As always God bless and I will see you in the next post!

xoxo,

Ashley Amber
