I layered a white shirt from Ross that you guys have been asking me where I have been getting these plain, solid colored, scoop style shirts! Literally, these shirts are the perfect basics for any skirt! They are in the one size section  and are fitted! Perfect for my infamous poofy skirts!

img_5986

I adore the cut and style of this dress! So light but has a structured and defined waistline!

Classy Loft also sells cute and comfy modest clothing at affordable prices!!

I will be featuring more of their adorable clothing in the following weeks to come!

img_5987img_5988

I have the cutest story to tell! As me and my good friend and photographer Trish were just about to wrap up our photoshoot, this little girl named came running up and screamed, “Minnie! Minnie! Oh I love Minnie mouse!!” LOL Needless to say, It made my day!

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.”

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!

VERSE OF THE DAY: 

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD.” Psalm 33:12

Modest “Little Red Dress” Featuring Mod Posh Boutique+Giveaway!!

Ahh yes the classic little red dress, the one dress that every woman needs at any given moment to be prepared for any special occasion, wedding or event!

But actually finding a “little red dress” that’s not so little can be a struggle!

Thankfully there are shops like Mod Posh (by my fellow blogger friend)!

A classic red lace victorian inspired dress that is both modest AND glamorous!

img_3980img_3982img_3983

And it’s finally back in stock! A dress that is sure to impress at any wedding, event or graduation for sure! Plus, did I mention that it is only $35?!

When in doubt… Put a Bow on it!

This dress is gorgeous all on its own but for a little added pop of cuteness and sparkle I added my go-to belt from Two 12 Fashion. 

img_3981

Reasons why I am loving this dress: 

  1. A modest high neckline that is covered in lace
  2. A classic A-line pleated shape
  3. Dainty and feminine scalloped lace hem for a high fashion look
  4.  It is fully lined and completely modest!

img_3984

Recently, these lace up heels have been taking over the fashion and Instagram world! I knew I had to get on the bandwagon and picked them up also in the color black!

img_3985

I love supporting small modest shops that are good quality and affordable! Mod Posh has so many stylish modest skirts that are on my wishlist!

I love Instagram shops because they make shopping so much easier and they usually give many outfit inspirations/combinations with that article of clothing.

 

Pssst…. I have a secret!  I loved my dress so much that Mod Posh and I have teamed up to bring you lovely ladies a giveaway of anything you’d like on their Instagram! There will  be a giveaway going on today in a couple of minutes 😉 Enjoy!!

❤️Once upon a Polkadot… Featuring DaintyJewells Dress!❤️

Hello Lovelies!! ❤️

Happy Sunday!! What a week it has been and what a week I look forward to! Last week was full of mid-terms which I am so thankful to all those who kept me in their prayers because this girl right here was about to lose her mind trying to remember eveything in every class!

Yesterday was such a busy day as well as we helped with “Pumkins in the Park” event for the little kids! 

It was so fun helping out and seeing the kids enjoy fall games, treats and picking their own pumpkin from the pumpkin patch! 🎃 

   
 So exciting because today was Restart Sunday at Lancaster Baptist Church!! And yes that is a huge I-Phone📱 🙌🏻 

(I Call dibs on it when they take it down 😉) 

   
 For the past couple of weeks we have gone out and knocked on doors inviting everyone to Restart Sunday and it was so encouraging to see the auditorium full of new time visitors! 

  
For today’s outfit I just couldn’t wait to wear this GORGEOUS dress from Dainty Jewell’s!! 

  
In the past I have collaborated with Dainty Jewell’s and let me tell you how amazing their customer service always is! Out of all my Dainty Jewell’s dresses and skirts this one has got to be my ultimate fav!!😍 

The Central Park Dress is one of their new fall releases and it’s absolutely stunning and timeless! This dress is perfect for fall because it’s not an actual stark white but more of a softer cream/off white which make the dress 10x classier and chic!

  
The Polkadots are so spontaneous and of different sizes that make this dress unique than any other Polkadot dress out there! 

The fitted bodice and full midi skirt are right up my alley!❤️❤️❤️❤️ The “poofier” the better🙌🏻❤️😍 

This lovely dress came with a lovely matching sash but I decided I wanted to wear that look some other time and do the “glam 50’s ” look today! 

So out came my most favoritest-est-est-est-estest-est belt ever!!!😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 (Yes I could keep going on and on about this belt!) this gold metal bar belt is simply the best belt I’ve ever worn! 

Thank you Two 12 Fashion!!✨ 

  
  
For my hair  I put those granny sponge rollers on my hair the night before! This is key when doing a retro hairstyle because in the morning you’ll want to brush them out gently to form waves. After that part your hair to the side and bobby pin it behind your ear ! *Make sure to wear pretty earrings to accentuate your classic 1950s do! * 

   

   For shoe I just couldn’t resist but to wear these red bow heels from She-Inside!

   
 
 
 
For my makeup I went for a classic red lip using my favorite red lipgloss  I got from an Ipsy Bag! 

It’s so rich and a shade of deep red ! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Did I mention it’s only a lipgloss?! 

   
   
You guys I have found my new favorite blush and it’s from E.L.F! 

It’s the mellow mauve blush and it’s a soft muted dust rose! Goes with any makeup look to freshen up the skin! Plus it’s a steal at only $3!👍🏻 
  
   
    
   
   
    
   
Well that wraps up today’s post ! Hope you all have an awesome Monday! ❤️⚫️⚪️❤️ 

I also forgot to mention that this dress comes in a little girls size ! 

I could totally see this as bridesmaids/flower girl dresses! 

  
Have a great rest of your Sunday!

Xoxo,

Ashley

   
 

Modest Style Diaries: Classic Striped Ball Gown Skirt! Featuring My Shop!

Hello Friends!!

Have you ever had those days where you just want a little pick me up?! For me an instant pick me up is a classic matte red lip, especially for ”tired skin” days!

IMG_4643

I am so pleased and excited to announce the re-open of my shop!! And I have some pretty exciting arrivals in store, one of the them including this skirt!

IMG_4646

Hello there Gorgeous!! ❤

You all know how much I LOVE ball gown princess skirts! They’re elegant, classy and so chic, and this one happens to be from my shop; Shop ModestlyHot!

IMG_4651

IMG_4662

As I was styling the skirt I wanted to give it a New York meets Retro feel to it.

I wore my J.Crew Button up Shirt with a huge red vintage belt to cinch in my waist! To add to the glamour I wore my ”one size fits all” necklace! The reason why I say that is because that this necklace from Purple Peridot goes with every single outfit! It’s like the little black dress for jewelry!

IMG_4648

IMG_4665

Hair of the Day: I guess I could tell you that wearing an ultra chic top bun was part of the planned outfit, but ima keep it real with y’all and say that I just didn’t want to deal with my curling iron and have weak arms at the end of it quite honestly! #longhairproblems
