GUESS WHAT?? I'm featured on Clothed Much today! Elaine has been an inspiration to me and was the one that actually inspired me to start a personal style blog. I thought it was brilliant a idea to represent modesty and share ideas of how to do it with style. Dressing modestly is something I value. Plus it was a great excuse for me to start a fashion blog. hehe. Thanks so much Elaine for having me over and making my dreams come true. Stop by here and say what's up!



I wore this at a baptism and baby shower. I found this skirt at Value Village on one of their 50% off favorite. I always receive inspiration from magazines, people, other bloggers. And I saw this girl in a magazine wearing a grey shirt with a printed skirt and said hey I have that and thought it was brilliant combo. So that was the inspiration of this outfit. the end.

STYLE FILE | Jessi Bingham

Happy Friday! Meet a fellow Mormon fashion blogger Jessi. I enjoy her unique vintage style and her simple DIY projects. Visit her blog here

NAME: Jessi Bingham
AGE: 21
HOMETOWN: Pleasant Grove, Utah
BLOGGING SINCE: October 2011
Why did you initially decide to start a blog? I've become increasingly interested in fashion over the last few years and had recently discovered the world of fashion blogging. I started reading a few daily outfit-style blogs and decided it was something I really wanted to do! I was a bit nervous about starting my own blog but I just followed my heart and I've had a lot of fun discovering my own style and sharing it! 
As a modest fashion blogger, what does modesty mean to you? I think dressing modestly reflects on my character and personality. By keeping modesty a standard I feel it shows I have self respect and confidence while still looking classy and well-dressed.
How would you describe your personal style? What/who inspires you? I think my personal style is kind of a girly vintage mix.. I'm inspired by anything indie or vintage, even a little of the Harajuku style. My favorite style icons are Zooey Deschanel and Audrey Hepburn. I love their classic feminineness and Zooey's vintage flare.
What are you must have accessories? Shoes are my number one accessory, I have an ever-growing collection...probably 70 pairs! Sometimes I'll even style an outfit around my shoes. I love the pop of color or unique style they add to an outfit. I also love to belt things! When in doubt, throwing a belt on usually works to add that extra something.

What do you do when you're not blogging? When I'm not blogging (or working) I'm usually spending time with my hubby. We love going to concerts, finding new shops or parks in our hometown, or just cuddling up to a new movie. Everyday is a new adventure with him! I also love shopping and DIY projects.
What are your favorite blogs? Why? I follow so many great blogs but one that's stuck with me from the beginning is Selective Potential. Tieka's style is so fun and girly. Her photos are always inspirational to me and her goofy adorable relationship with her husband reminds me of me and my hubby. Another blog I really love, not just for outfit posts but for great crafts and DIY ideas too is A Beautiful Mess. Her endless creativity is impressive and I love her sweet down-to-earth girly style.
What are some trends you love right now? Least favorite? I'm loving that tights are having a moment right now. One of my favorite things to do is wear a brightly colored pair of tights under my favorite dress. I also like the pleated, slouchy trousers look. One trend I can't really get myself to stand behind is "flatforms". You know those flat, platformed sandals? They're just...odd looking to me.

What clothing item would you say is timeless? I would say some form of a little black dress is always timeless, and of course a must have. I also think every girl needs a great pair of heels to make her feel confident and beautiful!

Thanks so much for coming by Jessi! Go ahead and check out her space here.


chambray look no. 2

Here's another way to style your classic chambray shirt. A simple tie in the front changes up the look and makes it more original. It's also a great modest-cover up for over a sleeveless dress or top! I styled it like this in another outfit.

hat: le chataeu
chambray button up: thrifted
skirt: forever 21
shoes: springs
ring: pacsun

On another note, here's some shots from valentines. You bes believe I went out with my girls again. We dressed up, went shopping at the mall, watched 'The Vow', and got dessert at Moxies. I say it was a day well spent and filled with lots oh love.

1. surprised by some chocolate goods from my sweet sweet mom. love her.
2. a flower crown that I made to make myself feel pretty..heh
3. did my nails with little hearts.
4. white chocolate brownie (soo good).


less is more

I believe in being modest.

I saw this on facebook and wanted to share it. I try to dress modestly because it shows respect for myself and for my body as a temple. It's classy, it feels more comfortable, and I think you can definitely still be attractive and stylish. It shows your confidence and creativity with your style. One of the main reasons why I started this blog is to show that you can be modest AND stylish at the same time {Yes, it's possible!}. There is so much variety in the clothes and trends these days. For example, maxi skirts, layering, cardigans, blazers...just to name a few. 

"Modest is Hottest" true. And yes, a lot of guys find modesty more attractive too. It's so great to see celebrities who are role models and examples of this. I love what Emma has to say - I'm an even bigger fan of hers now. And this girl’s got style...

"I find the whole concept of being ‘sexy’ embarrassing and confusing. If I do an interview with photographs people desperately want to change me - dye my hair blonder, pluck my eyebrows, give me a fringe. Then there’s the choice of clothes. I know everyone wants a picture of me in a mini-skirt. But that’s not me. I feel uncomfortable. I’d never go out in a mini-skirt. It’s nothing to do with protecting the Hermione image. I wouldn’t do that. Personally, I don’t actually think it’s even that sexy. What’s sexy about saying, ‘I’m here with my boobs out and a short skirt, have a look at everything I’ve got?’ My idea of sexy is that less is more. The less you reveal the more people can wonder." - Emma Watson

Go Emma....Represent! {haha...I know I'm a nerd}
