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 daintyΒ 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)

πŸŒ»πŸπŸ‚πŸƒColors of Fall Modest Outfit!πŸŒ»πŸ‚πŸπŸƒ

Hello friends !! 

I hope you all had an amazing morning! 

Just a little bit about my day it started off by inviting people to church for tommorow and let me tell you it was hot! (Hello 94 Degree weatherβ˜€οΈπŸ˜“ )  But nonetheless an exciting morning! 

A huge praise today because despite our nervousness me and my roommate (Audra) were able to lead 2 young adults to Christ!!❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️ 

Sometimes it’s a bit discouraging when so many people don’t want to hear about Christ,but it makes it all worth it when one person accepts Jesus as their Personal Saviour! 
I just thought it would be neat to share a little something about a Saturday here at West Coast!

For my outfit I am just sticking to fall colors aren’t i? 

  
I believe yesterday was the first day of fall if I’m not mistaken! πŸŒ»πŸπŸƒπŸ‚ 

Even though it doesn’t  feel anything like fall (hello California sun πŸ˜‰β˜€οΈ) but lets pretend that the leaves are falling!πŸπŸ‚πŸƒ 

   
    
 
Probably one of my favorite floral shirts has to be this one from Rue 21!πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸŒ»πŸπŸ‚ the sleeves is what really sold me! They’re bell shaped sleeves that give the shirt a boho vibe!πŸ‚πŸƒπŸ 

I cannot tell you guys how much I love this ball gown skirt!!! πŸ˜πŸ’› 

The Klassy Girl Boutique has the most glamorous skirts ever! (Glam is always a good idea !πŸ˜‰) 

   
    
    
 
For accessories I went for my fall favorite!! My wine colored bubble necklace from Our World Boutique! 

I actually won this necklace from A giveaway they were having last fall! 

Crazy !! I never win anything lol! 

  
If you haven’t noticed I’ve been kinda obsessed with fall florals this year! It’s a great transition from summer to fall! 

Or in my case summer to um,yea still summer! β˜€οΈ πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚ Well that wraps up today’s post! 

I got to head on over to Ladie’s devotions and call it a night!!😴 

 God Bless! 

   
 

πŸ‚πŸŒ»Modest Teal & Leopard Skirt Outfit featuring Jupe De Abby!πŸŒ»πŸ‚

Hello Friends!! 

Boy we’re already coming to the weekend!πŸ™ŒπŸ» Seems like yesterday it was just Sunday at church and now it’s time to do it all over once again!! 

So I as coming from my classes I went ahead and checked my mail and you won’t believe what arrived!!😱 

  
Just in time for fall!!πŸ‚πŸπŸƒ

This stunning aline leopard ball gown midi skirt! πŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ’›

Immediately when I saw it I knew it was going to be on repeat for several  outfit posts! 

 
I couldn’t help but wear it the same week I got it! (No shame in that lol) 

Now I realize I could go so many different routes with this skirt but I decided on wearing a teal blouse with gold accent buttons on the shoulders from Ross! 

*side note* I 100% recommend you purchasing a few of these dressy colored blouses! Check your Ross every week when they rotate inventory (ask your store manager what day of the week that is) to find these hidden gems! You can find them as low as $4-5 each! 

Such great staples in my wardrobe!

   
  

Now back to the skirt! You girls are in luck the skirts at Jupe de Abby are for the most part under $30 and they’re having a fall sale on their site!! πŸ™ŒπŸ» just use the code: Sept15 for even MORE savings! ❀️

  
  
“Leopard is a Neutral” 

I love the color combo of mint/teal and leopard! I wore my white flower statement necklace from Walmart (who knew Walmart could have such cute necklaces!) and my Justfab Cognac Wedges!  
   
   
You’ll probably be seeing this skirt on replay in the coming weeks because it is so versatile and goes with everything!

Well that wraps up today’s post!

Have a great weekend and I’ll chat with you next time!

God Bless,

Ashley❀️

  

πŸ‚πŸπŸŒ»Fall Florals!πŸŒ»πŸπŸ‚ Styling a Fringe Skirt!Β 

Hello and Happy Wednesday !! 

Well long time no post!! I’ve definitely missed you all! 

For those of you who don’t know I barely got settled into my new “home” here at West Coast Baptist College! 

I am so excited and exhausted but it’s been such an awesome experience thus far!

   
 
Don’t get me wrong I do miss the gorgeous mountains of Utah but the sunsets are are pretty amazing too! 

So for today’s outfit is totally about transitioning summer trends into the fall season! 

 

It’s completely not fall yet but I wanted a little essence of summer in my outfit and this floral shirt from Poshmark fit in perfectly! 

I dunno about you but this skirt is a must have for fall!! It’s fringe and the color is screaming to be worn all month long! (It’s been on major repeat!πŸ˜‰) 

   

 Floral and fringe is definitely a fall favorite right now! πŸ‚πŸŒ»πŸ it’s an easy way to transition from summer to fall! 

   

Cognac is becoming one of my favorite colors of all time! It falls into the category of navy I believe! 

It’s so rustic yet chic! 

I’ve been wearing these Cognac wedges from Justfab for the past outfits because 

(A) They’re comfy 

(B) They’re comfy 

And (c) they’re comfy πŸ˜‰ 

  
The movement of this skirt is so awesome and makes wearing it fun to twirl  around in lol!

It was only $17 from She Inside! Plus if you could get a 30% OFF online code that would make this deal even sweeter!  
Well that wraps up today’s post and now I got to get ready from Wednesday Night service! 

I’ll try to squeeze in as many blog posts as I can, but If you don’t hear from me just know that it’s probably because I’m somewhere in the library pulling out my hair writing an essay ! lol!

God Bless !! 

  

πŸπŸ‚πŸƒModest Fall Fashion! Polka Dots, Maroon and Midi Skirt Outfit!πŸπŸ‚πŸƒ

Hello Friends!!

September is finally here and I can’t believe that there are some people who are already starting their Christmas shopping!?

But then again my deadline is usually December 23rd lol! (Yes we’re those kind of Christmas shoppers :P)

So today’s post is all about the gorgeous fall colors that nature brings us each year!

IMG_4530

My outfit was completely inspired by the golds, maroons and reds of the falling leaves!

I absolutely LOVE this gold metallic midi skirt!

I truly appreciate when a skirt can be worn without any need of a skirt extender or slip!

Modest Length is crucial for all my skirts and I’m so loving that midi skirts were the trend of the season!

The pleating of this skirt is awesome and makes it much more voluminous!

Now I’ve seen yellow midi skirts before but this one has a gorgeous gold sheen over it and totally on point for fall!

My skirt is from The Klassy Girl Boutique, an affordable Modest clothing company!! Finding modest skirts is a challenge in itself but affordable as well?! Hahaha I’ll walk into a department store and find the most perfect, modest skirt ever and then I’ll flip the price tag over and see tripe digits?! Yeah I think I’ll pass heheh πŸ˜‰

IMG_4526

I chose to wear my Polka Dot Utility blouse from Charlotte Russe with this golden yellow skirt because polka dots and yellow equal a happy outfit!

IMG_4525

IMG_4524

For accessories I wore my maroon colored bubble necklace from Our World Boutique!

I actually won this beauty from an Instagram giveaway they’re were hosting around this same time last year!

Totally worth checking them out for trendy and affordable necklaces!

I paired up this golden yellow skirt with my favorite cognac and gold buckle belt to keep the fall theme going on throughout the look.

IMG_4528

IMG_4527

Hair of the Day: I used my NuMe Curling wand with the biggest sized barrel for soft bouncy curls/waves.

I definitely recommend these curling wands!! I’ve had mine for about 2-3 years and it’s the only one that can make my curls last til the next day! They are a bit pricey but they’re always running deals on them!

Makeup of the Day: I love fall for many reasons, but its my most favorite time of the years because I get to go all vampy with my lip colors!! ❀

The one I’m currently loving is the NYX Simply Vamp Lip Cream in the shade ”She Devil’. It is the darkest of all shades but can be sheered out like I did today. The pigmentation is surreal! If you don’t sheer it out it looks like a straight up black with purple undertones, very vampy and chic!

πŸπŸ‚πŸƒFall Fashion Trends! Chambray/Denim Edition!πŸπŸ‚πŸƒ

Happy 🍟Day Friends!!!
Well look at you making it another week!πŸ‘Š

I don’t know about you but I’m gearing up for some more fall fashion trends!

So for today’s featured fall trend is none other than the staple every girl should have in their closet…

CHAMBRAY/DENIM!!

Oh yes the trend that keeps coming back with full force season after season!

IMG_4405

I honestly don’t like to call Chambray a trend anymore its definitely here to stay!

I love my chambray tops and I adore it even more when they make an entire dress out of it and with polka dots!!IMG_4400

Fall is all about the rich tones and textures, and cognac + chambray is my favorite fall way to dress up this shabby chic dress!

IMG_4402

IMG_4409

You guys aren’t going to believe this but my entire outfit was all from good ol’ yard sales! LOL

I scored this adorable Polka Dot Chambray Dress from Sandy’s closet for just $5 at our Blogger Yard Sale earlier this month!

(also known as @sandyalamode on IG)

My cognac Bag was also from a yard sale a while ago and its literally one of my favs!!

I love how rustic and aged it looks and the bucket style shape is so up my alley!

IMG_4417

IMG_4414

IMG_4408

Now chambray can be paired up with literally anything and still look so chic! But since my dress had the cutest white micro polka dots I decided to wear white to make the white polka dots pop!

I added a thin white buckle belt paired up with my white 5 flower necklace from Walmart! (Haul coming soon πŸ˜‰

For months now my favorite white flower necklace from Our World Boutique broke and I was left without my staple piece?:(
Until last week I was randomly roaming the aisles of Walmart and found a TON of flower statement necklaces for just $5!

SCORE!!

Annnddddd then…. they somehow all appeared in my cart at checkout…? I know, So Weird.

πŸ‹When Life gives you lemons..πŸ‹ Fruit Fashion Trends!

Hello and Happy Thursday! πŸ‹

IMG_3871

I’d be lying if I didnt say that the weather often inspires my outfit for the day! Β So you can usually tell what kind of weather we’re having by just looking at my outfit! Lol

IMG_3863

Why yes it was a gorgeous sunny day and I had just the right dress ! 😍

Theres nothing happier than lemon print dresses!!πŸ˜πŸ‹πŸ‹πŸ‹πŸ‹

For the longest time ever I was coveting a lemon print dress! Theres just something so vintage yet so fun about these types of prints!

IMG_3864

Apparently when life gives Banana Republic lemons they make a lemon print dress and a gorgeous one at that too!

IMG_3859

Can you say yellow?! 😜 Nothing was held back on this outfit! Being a total pink kinda girl I gotta say that this year my closet has been filled with yellow! πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›

IMG_3855

IMG_3851

“Fruit Fashion” as I like to call it has been all the rage this summer season! Pineapples, lemons and strawberry prints are making a statement in the fashion world. Now I know what you’re thinking,” only a five year old or a crazy kindergarten teacher would wear this!” Uh uh! This can totally be worn as an everyday casual outfit! Fruit prints are not only ADORABLE but can look real classy and chic!

IMG_3853

This dress would also look great paired up with a forest green cardigan and nude pumps!

The fit on this dress is awesome and so comfortable! Trust me finding a dress that is the perfect length especially for a petite girl is like finding a needle in a haystack!

IMG_3857

That awkward moment you match a golf cart!πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚ #golfcartfashion

I loved how bright all the colors came together! Look out for more Fruit Inspired Fashion Finds on my blog!!
Well that wraps up today’s post! Hope you enjoyed it!!
