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.

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)

Happiest of Tuesdays Lovelies!! Happy 2nd Day of Summer!

To celebrate summer I thought I would recreate a modest boho inspired look.

Lace, pink, pleats and a stunning  floral crown from MauLoa Floral Designs  to complete my modest bohemian outfit!

I absolutely love this custom made floral crown from MauLoa Floral Designs!  I gave her my vision on what I wanted it to look like and she totally created it my dream floral crown!

I scored this dainty lace top from Ross about a week ago for just $15!  I checked my local Ross again, and they got another shipment in of theses boho inspired baby doll tops also in the color blush pink! (Totally on my wanted list!)

Ross is just a super fun store in which all my expectations are exceeded every single time!

Seriously, Ross does clearance aisles the best!

Shop Sevan is a new local boutique I am completely obsessed it! The boutique is run by the cutest couple Evan and Sara Johnson hence the cute name “Sevan”! (Get it? Sarah+Evan=SEVAN)

I am enamored with this chiffon, pleated maxi skirt because, it is completely modest and fully lined! I love when skirts do not require an additional layering slip ESPECIALLY in the summer heat! Thanks Shop Sevan!!

Okay, these chunky, cognac, lace up heels from Just Fab are simply divine! The size of the heel make them uber comfortable to walk and trot all day in them without the pain!

You know what time it is! ACCESSORY TIME! 

For the longest time I have been longing for a fold over leopard clutch and I finally found one from Taralynn’s Boutique!! It is the “purrfect” clutch that surprisingly holds all of my odds and ends! Think of it as a condensed Mary Poppins bag 😉

Funny “ModestlyHot Mishap”  (as my brother tends to call my blogger behind the scenes happenings) as me and Mildred (my friend and also photographer) were driving to our photoshoot location, I receive an email from Esprit Raw Flowers, a local Utah floral shop who provided the flower arrangements for this photoshoot! I was more than thrilled to be have such GORGEOUS fresh, cut flowers part of this shoot! A big THANK YOU to Esprit Raw Flowers!

Take a peek at my daily life as a modest fashion blogger.

⚫️⚪️✨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

  

Random Shopping Haul! Ross,Rue 21, H&M, Dollar Tree & Bath & Body Works!

Hello Lovelies!!

It’s Friday and everyone knows Fridays are for shopping! (& Saturday and Sunday aaaand Monday . lol)

I could not get a hold of myself this month of the amazing sales everyone is having! I mean Semi- Annual Sale Galore is happening in just about every store!

I honestly don’t even know where to begin!

IMG_2482

Let’s start off with my online orders!

So I’m always shopping off of Poshmark as you all know, and I found the cutest red and white polka dot heels!

So retro chic! They were originally listed for $30 but I offered $25 and the buyer accepted it. But I did not actually pay $25 because I had a couple of posh credits in my accounts meaning that I was only charged $14 to my card total!

IMG_2486                           I had a super happy mail day when my Cents of Style fashion tees came in the mail!

I love my ”Let it Go” graphic tee so much that I INSTANTLY bought three when they were on Jane.com!

It was so hard choosing what shirts to get but I decided on the , ”Stay Classy”,”Bless her Heart (<3)” and ”As If!”

(Excuse the wrinkles they’ve been in the mailing parcel til I wear them!)

IMG_2496                           So I was at my local mall and I always make sure to check Ross (especially on Tuesdays and Wednesdays when they add new stock) to see what new stuff they had!

*Hint hint* these next items may or may not be for you! 😉 (cough* future giveaway*)

IMG_2489

Now I love shopping in the mornings as soon as the mall opens because there is no hassle of lines,but I had to get to work! I actually returned to the mall after work when I saw everyone walking out with bath and body works bags, but not just any bags, they were the special,”Semi-Annual Sale” kind of shopping bags!

EEK! So of course I was going to stock up on yummy fragrances for myself and my home!

IMG_2478

They were also having a ”Flashback Fragrances” sale for just $3.50 each!

IMG_2479

The sale was CRAZY! I scored $22.50 3 wick candles for just $5! And oh my ! Look what I found!

Nautical Inspired Candles?!! You know I had to snatch a couple up!

IMG_2477

Speaking about nautical I went into Icing and they were having all their necklaces on sale for just $5! So I picked up this nautical necklace with these adorable nautical charms!

The super nice girl at the store saw how anchor crazed I was and she brought out from the backroom the most amazing sandals ever!!

They were navy and white striped anchor sandals!! YASS!!!!

IMG_2487

Next stop is of course Rue 21 my go to place for dirt cheap (almost free) clothes!!

So I loved my blush tulle skirt so much that I went in and bought the black version !
I also scored these adorable patriotic sandals! (Which I’ve already worn like 5 times lol shhh dont tell!)

IMG_2493

”She wore an itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polkadot.”.. cardigan?!

IMG_2491

IMG_2492

Last but certainly not least is Dollar Tree!

Ever since I was a little kid I have had a love for shopping at Dollar Tree! (I mean come on everything’s a buck!)

So I picked up these cute anchor duct tapes!

I know you guys!!!! I have a problem!!

I ‘m not sure what exactly I’ll use them for but I’ll get back to ya!

IMG_2490

So that wraps up today’s haul!!

God Bless You!
