Am I the only one who gets frustrated when I am shopping around for a formal dress and everything in the store is either too tight, too low-cut, too short, sleeveless, or has the most obnoxious slit toward the thigh? (seriously who wants to see that?!)
Well let me tell you this girl refuses to settle for a less than spectacular formal dress! I think every girl deserves a dress that meets her modest standards while feeling absolutely confident and glamorous while wearing it! So, without further ado,
Here are my 4 Tips on Dressing Modestly and Glamorously!
Tip #1: Pick a Bold, Rich Color!
Rich colors such as royal blue, purple, rich red, etc. communicates elegance, wealth, sophistication, and intelligence. Even if the dress is of a simple structure, the color choice alone can make it look posh and refined without all the “bling”.
This is a great tip if “bling isn’t your thing”.
However, if you’re like me and love sparkles, glitter, and bling, a sequined or beaded top with a simpler bottom will have the sparkle we desire without being too overbearing!
Tip #2: Life is Easier with Sleeves
Come on, admit it if at some point in your life you have purchased a dress with a “modesty issue” thinking you would fix it and then totally giving up on it! (Don’t worry I’ve totally been there too!)
Here’s a tip, just buy the dress that has sleeves, or is longer, or isn’t as tight.
Avoid the woe and the worry to try and find a jacket that will cover up and match the dress. Most of the time finding a bolero jacket that will match the style of dress is very difficult to find and we all know that wearing a matching colored t-shirt underneath is a no-go either!
So save yourself some heartbreak and buy the dress with sleeves!
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.
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!
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!!
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!
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!
Still cannot get enough of my affordable Walmart floppy hat!
Happy Friday!! I am checking in with you guys from Park City, attending the Hello Live Conference from the giveaway I won in July! I am beyond grateful for the amazing influential people I’ve met so far! (*pictures coming soon!)

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!
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!
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!
