My Favorite Modesty Hacks // How to Make Pretty Much Any Top Modest

DSC_0264

This midi dress is from Aro and Company (enter in “WHITJ10” for 10% off your whole purchase) and it’s what dreams are made of, the material is soft, not constricting and the length is amazing. I absolutely fell in love with it from the second that I saw it! The back if it is one of the best parts; its so unique, it dips low and has a strap across the shoulder blades (pictured below). However, because of my stand on modesty I had to do a little modesty hack in order to wear this dress. Which is what brings me to one of my favorite topics; modesty hacks.

If your shirt is sleeveless, dips too low in the front or the back, or is sheer; half tees are your answer! These tees are amazing, they will cover just the right amount for you to be modest and the best part is that it won’t add bulk to your outfit as it only covers half of your torso.

Another option for sleeveless shirts are to wear a cardigan over it, you can see one of my favorite tank- cardigan layered looks here. Or my favorite option; layer it with a kimono! You can see how I layered one of my favorite sleeveless tops with a kimono here.

I will be doing another segment soon about my favorite modestly hacks for skirts and dresses that are too short. There are so many options out there and I can’t wait to share them with you!

You Better Believe I Wear Olivia Wares

IMG_0962

I recently found this company through Instagram called Olivia Wares they have beautiful, unique, fashion finds in their boutique and I truly enjoy browsing their shop… I do if often.

In this perfectly cool and fun summery outfit I am featuring their floral leggings. Guys, these leggings are as soft as butter and (as you can see) I am a girl with curves and these have plenty of stretch to perfectly cover my curves. I didn’t feel like I was bursting out of them AT ALL (which is not that easy to find when it comes to leggings and my bod).

Ready for the best parts? I am giving away one pair of leggings from Olivia Wares this week so stay tuned for the details on that. ALSO, I’m all about beauty on a budget so I have a killer 40% off coupon code for you to use on anything in their shop! Enter in code “whitneyj” but act quick because this is only good through this Sunday 7/12. UPDATE: Code is working now :). Happy Shopping! I hope you love Olivia Wares as much as I do :).

Pink, Tulle, and Floral // Getting the Most Out of Your Purchases

IMG_0823

My outfit today involves three of my favorite things; pink, tulle, and floral. These three are such a great combination together, you really just can’t go wrong. You might recognize this shirt from one of my previous posts a few back called Laid Back Summer  Lovin! In that post I styled this shirt very casually. But this time around I styled it fancy. Which brings me to the topic of how to make the very most out of your purchases.

I am not, nor will I ever be, the type of blogger who buys prada and wears Louis Vuitton, there is absolutely nothing wrong with those designers but I am just not a designer type. When I buy, I buy for style (of course) but I also buy for versatility. My hubs and I have a budget we set each month and I stay within that budget, even as I blog. In order to do this I look for pieces to buy that I know I can wear at least two different ways, like this shirt. If I can’t wear it two different ways then I rarely buy it…unless I am in LOVE with it and in that case…well you know what that case is :).

This shirt is from White Plum right now you can get 40% off your order of $40 or more by entering in code “AMERICAN BEAUTY”

What are your tricks for style on a budget? I would love to hear from you! I am always looking for new ideas. Thanks for reading!

Never Enough Floral

IMG_0777

There really is no such thing as enough floral in my book. I really wouldn’t mind wearing it every day… and I just about do. It’s one of those things that makes my day brighter… like chocolate. Thus, my conclusion, wearing floral is very similar to eating chocolate 🙂

I got this beautiful floral tee from my fave La Belle Vie. I love this tee because you can dress it up or dress it down and its floral… need I say more? They only have a few left in stock so RUN on over and grab yourself one of these beauties! Remember you can get 25% off by entering in “whitjoxo” until July 15th. 

My pants are from Mindy Mae’s Market…yes this is like the tenth time I have styled them, they are absolute perfection. Keep an eye out on their Instagram for great deals and flash sales going on all the time! Sweater- Taipan Trading, Shoes-Target

Head Wrap Heaven

IMG_0886

I think that I found my favorite summer outfit. Not only is it comfy, it’s colorful, cute, and perfectly summery! This past weekend I went to St. George with my hubs (I’ll be posting about that soon) and I wore this outfit two separate times… haha go ahead and judge! It’s that amazing.

Here are the deets, my pants are my new favorite pair of pants, perfect fit, perfect distressed look, they have it all. They are from Mindy Mae’s Market, also the fit is perfectly true to size. This perfect pineapple shirt is from Sweet T’s Design, pineapples are all the rage this year. This shirt is so soft and has such a slouchy fit, which I enjoy very much! Lastly, my head wrap is AMAZING and from this adorable Etsy shop called Moxi and Threads. I am honesty 100% amazed with the fit and feel of these wraps, they are quality made. Headwrap’s in the past were a 4-5 hour maximum for me, they would start to hurt my head so bad and give me headaches. Not Moxi and Threads head wraps, I have worn them all day long and several days in a row with absolutely no pain or headaches.

Here’s the best part! I have a coupon code for Moxi and Threads so that you can experience head wrap heaven too! Enter in “whitjmoxie” for 20% off your purchase. Happy shopping!

White Lacey Perfection// Support Families Affected By Childhood Cancer

IMG_0804

As you know, I love my La Belle Vie boutique. They have such unique, beautiful items at fantastic prices. Their Audrey top is white lacey perfection. I am absolutely in love with it. This top makes this outfit one of my favorite fancy looks. Ready for the best part? Enter in code “whitjxoxo” for 25% off your whole order at La Belle Vie through July 15th. Yay!!

Now lets talk for a second about this necklace, its totally swoon worthy! I got this beauty from Mindy Mae’s Market, I had a friend tag me in a post of theirs on Instagram and I have been in love ever since.

This adorable skirt is from this sweet company called PS I adore you. They are a company similar to Jane.com, where they have new amazing deals each day. But what makes them different, and truly incredible, is that they also support childhood cancer and give a percentage of each purchase to families affected by childhood cancer. That is a purchase you can feel good about, I absolutely love them and what they stand for! Happy shopping loves!

Laid Back Summer Lovin!

IMG_0732 So my cute hubs is like amazing at long boarding. On one our first dates we were just chillin in Provo canyon and he pulled out his longboard, he knew that I had never long boarded before so he thought it would be fun to teach me how, I thought it would be fun too! I mean, I consider myself an athletic person. So I channeled my inner scooter riding days (you know the Razors? I had a red one, I was such a cool cat) and gave it my best shot. FAIL! Ultimate fail you guys, like the kind of fail that you really don’t want anyone to see on a first date, let alone the man you are head over heels for. Thank goodness he decided to look past my long boarding fails and still put a ring on it. So we pulled the longboard out again for this fun laid back photo shoot and it was a whole new kind of fail. At least I have this gorgeous baseball tee from White Plum on while I am failing, right? I LOVE this shirt, it is so versatile, it can be dressed up or dressed down Stay tuned, next week I will show you how you can style this tee to look perfectly, classically, fancy. I love White Plum’s shop they always have amazing deals on Jane.com which if you decide go look on Jane.com, I’m going to apologize now for the extreme amount of addiction that you will soon experience. I think I have gotten a dozen or so people hooked on it. Aside from Jane deals they also give you a 30% coupon in the mail with everything you order! Which gives you the perfect excuse to order something else, but good luck picking just one thing to order on their site :). Happy shopping and thanks for reading!
