We encourage you to participate by using the hashtag #pentecostallookbook. Who knows you may end up on here!! :)

Here are some outfits that inspire us. Be sure to check these ladies out on Instagram.

Top-left: @ msbethany. We love the polkadot top & the blue pumps. the blue contrasts with the black & white, and gives the outfit a pop of color. Love it!

Top-right: @ smartskirt96. We had a pocket challenge about two weeks ago, and we LOVED this skirt. Love the color, stripes, and how she combined it. A basic top with a busy skirt. And Aren't those shoes adorable?

Bottom-left: @ aby0405. The color of this skirt is amazing, and we love that she combined it with a striped top, and blazer. Very simple, yet chic!

Bottom-right: @ lache1. Perfect for fall /winter? PRINTS. We love this look because its a simple outfit with a leopard print. She took it a step further by wearing a bright color, so her outfit is accented by two things, pattern & a pop of color. Shes keeping her outfit simple by not adding too much..just enough to make it work!

Cardigans love

Lets talk Cardigans. 

cardigan is a type of knit shirt that has an open front. Often, cardigans can be tied, buttoned, or zipped. Pretty simple to understand. right? They are so amazing because they serve so many purposes.  They keep you warm, modest and still stylish. We love them!! 
Cardigans vary in necklines, lengths, fabrics. and length. There is many many different kinds, so we will just cover a few, and save the rest forever.  So lets get started. 

1. Shrug Cardigan: a shrug’s purpose is to cover a small portion of the upper body, mainly just the arms and shoulders. They are typically cropped, have long sleeves or 3/4 length sleeves, and do not have any buttons or closures. A shrug cardigan can have a longer length on the front and back. This type of cardigan are perfect with those dresses that a busy on the top half because it won't cover too much of it. 

2. Tailored Cardigan. the typical cardigan shape and style, usually with a banding at the hem, sometimes without, and which ends mid-length, or right before the hip. This we believe is the most common cardigan to find. Tailored cardigans worn open look a little boxy to us, unless you add a belt to define your waisteline.  We prefer them fitted and buttoned up a little. Since they end right before the hip and often have banding in that area, buttonning these up they can help make the waist look more cinched and prevent the hips from looking more wide. Wear these with a jean skirt. 

3. Long Cardigan/Boyfriend Cardigan: these fitted or semi-fitted cardigans end mid-thigh or just below your bottom. These look good on taller girl, but shorter girls can wear these too.. just find one that’s not too long that you almost look like you’re drowning in fabric. It should be a long length that you feel comfortable wearing. We like to wear these open with an A-line or Full knee-lengthed skirt, and high heels|. 

4. Cropped Cardigan: These are short cardigans. They fall right above the waist. They can also be long, 3/4, or short sleeve. These look very cute with loose-fitting feminine tops, and dresses. They make any outfit look relaxed but pretty. 

The best part of cardigans? they keep you modest! 
Here are some ladies that posted their outfit on our instagram.

Weekly Outfit: Old Navy

This weeks outfit is from Old Navy. Who doesn't love Old Navy?  It has it all, and it's affordable. Have you been there lately? they have so many cute things.

Shopping Tip: When shopping in Old Navy make sure you try their clothing on. I find that some of their pieces to run a bit big.

For this weeks outfit we paired this cute black & white striped dress with a  red cardigan to add some color.   We would wear this cardigan open, and added this brown belt to accent your waist. We saw these cute wedged loafers, and couldn't resist.  Are they adorable?  You could also add tights to keep warmer, and also, a scarf.

Hope you like it!!

Weekly Outfit: Forever21

So, we decided that every week we will do an inspiration  post, of where to shop and what to buy.  Basically we will be posting items from a local store, and create a cute modest outfit.  We will be posting it from the store website, but don't worry, it will be items that we have seen in the store's ourselves.
Forever 21
So we will start with Forever21 because this store is basically everywhere, in Canada and United States. Forever21 is known for having trendy clothing at affordable prices.  (Affordable is definitively correct. Bought a top there on sale for $3.)  Believe it or not, this store has been around since 1984, and it was first intended for middle aged women, but I don't think this is the case anymore.  It's a great place to shop because they always have skirts, and pretty shirts. Pretty much they have everything.

Shopping Tip:  
Make sure you go to forever21 with TIME!  Shopping at there can sometimes be overwhelming because there is so much to look at.  They stuff alot into one store.  Don't get overwelmed, just take it, one section at a time. Most likely, you will find something.  There is just too much in there, not too!  So be patient and determined.

We first saw this skirt, and decided to make an outfit with it. It's a midi-length A-line skirt, which means it totally falls under the modesty category.  It's dressy so this would be good for church.  We paired it with a simple black shirt that has a "cowl neckline", so it doesn't dress down the skirt. Tuck the shirt in, and add this cute thick waist triangle belt to add some texture to this simple outfit. We also wanted to add pops of color with these burgundy pumps, and burgundy clutch.

For this particular look, since it's pretty simple, you could pull of a messy hair style, or a curly one.

There you have it! Remember.. Modest is Hottest.  
(lol we read that somewhere)
