In OUR VERY FIRST Un-Style Me video ON OUR TOP BUTTONS YOU TUBE CHANNEL, Amanda is showing us how to create an outfit combining three different styles: boho, edgy and classic. This look is perfect for a relaxed Saturday grabbing a coffee or shopping with your girlfriends. We hope this video inspires you to collide your favorite pieces to create a totally unique and totally YOU - look. Show us your #unstyleme look on instagram! We would love to see how you combine different styles to create your #lotd! http://youtu.be/rn46yy20aTM
In the quest for finding your personal style have you ever felt pressure to fit into a “style box?” Do you like wearing bohemian clothing one day and the next an edgy outfit? We want you to know that it is perfectly ok to take fashion and make it your own. In the next few weeks we are starting a new series called “Un-Style Me” which will give you tips and tricks to feeling comfortable embracing your unique look! Modesty isn't about shopping at Ann Taylor and Gap. You can express yourself in your own unique style without compromise! Let's go on this journey together and explore all the different ways we can put an outfit together. Click on the video below to hear more from our own Super Self-Confident, "Out of the box," Top Buttons contributor, Amanda Smith- on what to expect from this Un-Style Me series.

Recently TopButtons had the opportunity to do a photo shoot with two of our biggest supporters: Abby and Makailey. These lovely high school students remind us why we do what we do and they are living examples of what it means to reveal less and express more.
Enjoy some of our favorite shots accompanied by some details of their trendy outfits.
Meet Abby! Her bright colors and cute pose represent her fun personality! Abby's ombre dress blends from pink to orange, which is perfect for Spring. She purchased her dress at Target.
Abby chose to accessorize her outfit with layered necklaces and a cute bow ring, but this dress can be paired with all kinds of jewelry to express one's unique style.
Abby's metallic sandals are from TJMaxx, which is a great store because it offers high quality name-brand clothing at a fraction of the price!
Abby's Favorite Bible Verse: I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live. [Psalm 116:1-2]

Meet Makailey! She chose to create a color contrast with a sea-green blouse from Bealls and a pink bauble necklace that she scored at Goodwill.
Makailey's white pants are perfect for Florida's warm weather. She was able to get these at Old Navy, which provides several affordable options.
Makailey's Favorite Bible Verse: By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me— a prayer to the God of my life. [Psalm 42:8]
Not only do Abby and Makailey have a good sense of style, but they also have good hearts. Because they have such a unique and dynamic friendship with each other, they're able to remind each other of their value in Christ.
