Modest Monday Link Up

No pictures for this week’s Modest Monday. It’s summer still, and it’s been a busy week. Sean and I had Saturday to ourselves (plus Sophia!) as the rest of the children went to spend the night with Nana. We had a fun time running some errands together. I went to Starbucks for the very first (and probably last!) time (with a gift card). I loved what I got, but I’m not going to become a Starbucks fan. My wallet will thank me. :)

Sunday my outfit was destroyed by a blow out diaper at church. I almost went home to change, but decided to just hold Sophia in front of me to hide the mess and it went ok. 😉 I changed just as soon as we got home from church!

August Flex Clip of the month. There are Two flexi clips this month!

The Flexi Of The Month clip was released for August, and this month there are TWO clips! I love the vibrant colors of this clip! As usual, these clips go very fast and normally are not available throughout the whole month. If you really want a certain size, don’t delay!

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

If you are not a member of our subscriber only Facebook group, you don’t know what you are missing out on! I was a little worried when I started the group, not sure how much time it would take to admin it. Honestly, it’s been a blast and hasn’t felt like work at all! I love seeing all the outfits that ladies post, and the ideas that are shared. You just need to be a blog subscriber, and then request to join the group!

The outfits this week for Feminine Friday are so much fun!

Day Out - The Modest Mom

Day Out

Dress ~ Cardigan ~ Wedges ~ Necklace ~ Flexi Clip

This looks like such a fun outfit to wear for date night, or to church. I really love wearing navy blue, and the red paired with it makes a classic looking outfit.

Country Rosebud - The Modest Mom

Country Rosebud

Skirt ~ Top ~ Cardigan ~ Sandals ~ Earrings ~ Belt ~  Nail Polish ~ Flexi Clip

This is our very own cream lace maxi skirt that we sell. It’s so beautiful, and will be lovely in the fall and even winter since it is cream and not a pure white! The different looks are endless with this skirt.

A New Kind of Nautical - The Modest Mom

A New Kind Of Nautical

Skirt ~ Top ~ Sandals ~ Bracelet ~ Nail Polish ~ Flexi Clip

These are the outfits that I love. Simple, practical for a mom, yet classic and modern looking. I think I would even try those sandals! I’m pretty boring when it comes to my shoes. :)

I hope you have an awesome weekend!

I Went To My First Lilla Rose Convention! {Well…Almost}

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

This past weekend we took a day trip to Omaha Nebraska where I was able to attend a one day regional training event for Lilla Rose. They have yearly conventions for customers in California, but that’s just a tad far away from Missouri. :)

I was so excited to finally meet the founder and owner of Lilla Rose! John Dorsey is a really great, down to earth guy who wants to meet every consultant and talk with them. I’ve chatted with him on the phone, and even had flowers sent from him on behalf of Lilla Rose when Sophia was born, but this was the first chance I’ve had to meet him. It was really good to get to chat with him, ask some questions I’ve had about Lilla Rose, and to just tell him how thankful I am for this business!

I finally met the owner of Lilla Rose! Such an amazing business to be a consultant with!  I think it is the best direct sales company ever!

We had a session where we did different hairstyles with the flexi clips. I learned some new tips, and I had a new friend try doing a twist on my hair. She was needing some help, so John came over and did this twist on my hair. I loved it! I need to practice at home. It literally only took him  2 or 3 minutes to get it done.

After leaving this training event I am even more thankful for this company. I heard John Dorsey’s story of how Lilla Rose came to be. It was failure after failure, and even more failures before he discovered the right way to sell flexi-clips. As a business owner myself it was encouraging to hear of how many times he struggled before he finally realized the right way to run his business. Since he is married with two teenage daughters, he understands family life and never pressures the consultants to give more than they can.

There is only a few more days of the free shipping special for new consultants wanting to join! Even if you are not interested in building a huge business right now, you can join for $50 and receive 5 clips, and get a 30% discount on every order you place! No website fees, no monthly minimums to reach!

Join Lilla Rose during this FREE Shipping special! Get any kit shipped for free only through the end of July!

While I was at the training event all day my husband and children went to the Omaha zoo. It’s a fantastic zoo, and they had a great day! I was worried about Sean taking five children to the zoo all day by himself, but he said everything went really well! I’m so blessed to have such a great husband. :)

Going to the Omaha zoo!

Modest Monday and a Link Up!

Coral dress with denim jacket!

It might be hard to see, but a butterfly landed on the bush and I was looking at it in this picture. :)

We had a busy weekend, we went out of town on Saturday and got home late. Up early for church and had a meal afterwards at church. Then our family was in charge of a casual Sunday evening service at our church, so we came home to get that ready. Thankfully I was able to get a short nap in. I know Monday is going to be slower because we are tired and the house needs cleaned!

I like wearing this maxi dress because I can nurse in public (using a nursing cover) if I wear a cropped layering shell or a halftee with it. Yay for wearing dresses while nursing! I love skirts but I really do enjoy getting to wear dresses once in a while.

XL Flexi Clip from Lilla Rose!

This is a “we are leaving the house right now, throw your hair up in something quick” hairstyle. :) Not the greatest thing I’ve done, but it worked. It’s really hot in Missouri right now, so putting my hair up felt good. I’m using an X-Large flexi clip that was one of the flexi of the month clips.

What I Wore

Maxi Dress – JCPenny (same style as this maxi dress)

Cami – Cropped Layering Shell

Short Sleeve Denim  Jacket – I found this on ThredUP (a site to purchase gently used clothing, new customers to ThredUP can receive a $10 credit).

Flexi Clip – X-Large clip from Lilla Rose.
