Do You Struggle With Knowing What To Wear?

Do you ever struggle with knowing what you are going to wear for the day?

Do you stand in front of your closet for 5 minutes and pull out one item after another, and you feel frustrated that nothing is matching?

Do you long for variety in your wardrobe, yet you want to keep things simple?

I’ve been working on creating more of a capsule wardrobe for spring and summer, while still keeping all my fun extra items, like floral dresses and lace skirts.

Basically I just want a capsule wardrobe for the weekday, something I can cycle through and create outfits that fit, look nice, and can coordinate together.

I’ve been wearing the long stretch denim skirt, the short stretch denim skirt and the Rainbow denim skirt quite often, and alternating tops with them.

Now that it’s warming up I’m wearing sandals with them, my Converse shoes, and my Toms slip ons.

Last night I grabbed two basic solid color shirts when we were out shopping to add to my weekday collection. I’m so excited about them, because I picked two colors that will go with everything! A lovely bright mint green and a deep lavender color. I have scarves that will match them, flexi clips and jewelry!

I really love capsule wardrobes when people are super creative about changing up their outfits, and mixing up the items in the capsule wardrobe. I have a resource that will help you do this!

I’ve gone through a GYPO challenge before, which stands for Get Your Pretty On. If you struggle with knowing how to put outfits together, these challenges are fantastic!

I was really excited to see that the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle included a Stay At Home Mom Casual Wardrobe Basic Builder in this year’s bundle! This downloadable resource offers cute outfits that are all put together, from shoes, jewelry and clothes, and gives you a list of what you need to have for this capsule wardrobe.

Now not everything on the list is what you might like. But it’s so easy to substitute items and still pull it off!

For example, 4 pairs of jeans are required. If you don’t want to wear jeans, just substitute it out with a few denim skirts or a white skirt in place of the white jeans!

A chambray dress is on the list but I don’t like the one they have. Instead I would pick a Chambray dress from eShakti, or look at local thrift stores.

I like this dress, you can add sleeves to it on their website and even customize the length!

With just a few changes this guide could be a great way to get you used to a capsule wardrobe!

This guide is normally $29 if you purchased it from the GYPO website. But for just one dollar more you can purchase the entire Ultimate Homemaking Bundle for $29.97 and receive 106 resources and some really awesome physical bonuses! 

 

Don’t forget about the free flex clip, or the free $10 gift certificate to Deborah & Co. you will get if you order the Homemaking Bundle through me! You could use the $10 to put towards getting a new denim skirt to use for this challenge! Wahoo!

 

The Homemaking Bundle is only available through this Monday, so you don’t want to put it off!  Order the bundle and then fill out this google form to receive your bonus offer from me!

If you don’t like the idea of the wardrobe challenge, at the very least get this bundle for the Temper Toolkit course by Lisa-Jo Baker (it’s amazing!), or the Nester’s Cozy Minimalist  course! Both of these are worth the price of the bundle alone, or more!

 

 

 

The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle Is Here!!

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support! Help yourself become a better Homemaker with this amazing offer! Only good for six days. You won't regret it!

It’s here! The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle is my absolute favorite bundle to promote each year, and it’s the only bundle I actually feel is worth the effort to promote. Why? Because every year I fall in love with all of the amazing content in the bundle and can’t wait to share it with you!

This year the value is amazing, and the highest it’s ever been! You get almost $2,000 worth of products for the same low price of $29.97! It’s really astounding and yes it’s true. This isn’t a sham deal. That’s why it only comes once a year!

 

If you bought each one of these 106 items separately it would cost you $1,983.80. There is NO WAY that anyone is going to spend that much buying all these items, but more importantly, you won’t want every single item! But if you were to buy these items separately, it would cost you around $19 for each item! I know there are at least 10-20 items in here that you would love to have, and I’m guessing way more than that.

For just a few days only you can get it all for the $29.97 price!

I want to share with you some of my favorite products. As an author in the bundle I always get a sneak peak and I love getting to preview some of the courses and ebooks first. Yes you read that right! The Basic version of The Well Ordered Kitchen is included in this bundle, plus a huge coupon code to save on the Deluxe or Premium version if you want to upgrade! 

First, some basic information about the Bundle.

  • There are 105 items included (ebooks courses, videos, printables, membership sites, and workbooks!). Plus there are 10 bonus offers, with 8 of them being physical items! There is a combination of super practical items for mothering and homemaking, and then some fun items for moms, like the doodle and coloring books included!

 

  • The ebooks come in PDF or Kindle format. Starting Friday you will pay an extra $10 to upgrade to the Kindle Format. If you want the Kindle format hurry and order today or tomorrow to get it free!

 

  • As a fun bonus you have 10 bonus offers to redeem, 8 of them being physical items! From scripture journals to dryer balls, a glass straw for your cup or beautiful art prints. It’s so much fun to get all of the bonus offers in the mail!! These are worth $293 together!

And with that, here is a list of a few things that I really like from the Bundle!

Temper Toolkit – This is a video series from Lisa Jo Baker. Even the introduction video pulled me in right away. Let’s just all stop right here and admit that we struggle with our temper with our children. It definitely varies in how it manifests itself, but I’m sure every mother could use an encouraging boost with lots of practical tips on how to be more patient and loving with their children. Find practical strategies, honest stories, and Biblical resources from one mom to another to help you take control of your temper BEFORE you lose it!

The SAHM Wardrobe Basics Builder – This is a 20 piece capsule wardrobe guide to help you build a capsule wardrobe of your own. If you are skirts only, swap the jeans out for a denim skirt. 🙂

What’s 4 Dinner Challenge Meal Planning e-course – I love Erin from Humbled Homemaker, so I really enjoyed watching these videos and hearing her stories!

Foundational Five Plus – I’ve been working on healing my Diastasis before we have another baby.  I’ve been using the Foundational Five workouts from Fit2B and I love that these are included.

Cozy Minimalism Decorating Class by The Nester – Anyone who reads The Nester’s blog knows that she is amazing at decorating! I am looking forward to going through this video course and learning all her tips and secrets!

The Busy Mom’s Make Ahead Breakfast Cookbook – I struggle with breakfast time, but this cookbook gave me tons of ideas!! I already used a recipe for breakfast this week and we all loved it!

Those are just a few things I wanted to share, I have a lot more on the list of things I love!!

You can’t forget to go check all the wonderful bonus offers! Head over to the website and see what bonus offers you get that equal almost $300!

And now for my exciting news. I have my very own bonus offer for those of you who purchase through me! And it’s pretty amazing! 

For six days, anyone who orders the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle through me will get to pick between receiving a free mini flexi clip (you pay $3.00 in shipping and I choose the style), OR receiving a $10 gift certificate to spend at Deborah & Co. 

Wahoo!! I think that is so fun!

The Freedom To Form Standards, The Grace To Walk Away

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support! Help yourself become a better Homemaker with this amazing offer! Only good for six days. You won't regret it!

Do you ever feel insecure and wonder what people think about you? I sure do! And it’s not just because I have an online presence and hope people online don’t think I’m crazy. I don’t worry so much about that anymore – I learned a long time ago that I can’t please everyone!

We were at the Midwest Great Homeschool Convention this past week, and every time I share online that we are headed to another convention there is a little part of me that cringes. People think we are on the road a lot, but we only did 2 conventions with our businesses this year and attended another one as a couple.

For years I had a stance to not attend shows or do parties with my businesses. I felt like I worked enough from home and I wasn’t going to leave my babies. And then we started doing conventions. What changed is that suddenly my husband had a product to bring along, and so it wasn’t all about me. We were in this as a family, and it has been worth it to travel. But it means leaving my younger children home with Nana or Aunt, and I always feel so guilty! It’s honestly not so much about feeling guilty for myself. I know they love spending time on the farm with Nana and she takes great care of them. It comes down to the age old question, “what must people think of me that I’ll leave my young children at home for the weekend?

Can you relate? Women crave to be accepted, and even though we stand firm as homeschooling mothers in stances that are not popular in the culture, we don’t want our friends around us to judge. For the record, I’ve never felt judged by my friends for leaving on business trips. I think it’s all in my head!

I think part of this feeling is just pride. We don’t want others to look down on us. Sean and I have changed our opinions on a number of issues over the years. We have deeply regretted how ultra conservative we were in our early years of marriage, because it led to us being critical and prideful.

We once used to be 100% quiverful. I even wrote a blog post about it years ago. Now we have a heart to have children for the Lord, but have seen the wisdom in spacing out my pregnancies so my health doesn’t totally collapse.  Do you know how controversial this is, especially online? To be truly committed to the Lord surely means to be 100% quiverful, right?

We used to be committed to the integrated family church model. Now we don’t have a problem with sending our children to a Sunday School class, provided we trust the teachers and feel it’s a safe environment.

I could go on and on about all the things we’ve had to admit we were wrong about. It’s humbling to admit that you have changed your mind. It’s easy to share all the super conservative standards you have among friends, because those are viewed as making you a godly family. It’s not as easy to change in ways that people feel like you must be going soft.

I’ve felt such freedom in letting go of some standards that I feel are more man made. There has to be a balance. Follow the straight and narrow path when it comes to true commandments from God. There are many standards that are black and white with no grey in between. But is the Bible truly definitive in its stance for or against Sunday Schools or even wearing skirts only? I know some of you believe that it is, but the case is difficult to make. Sometimes it comes down to every family deciding what is best for them, and then leaving it at that.

So with that being said, I’m not going to try to convince you to follow my lead and not be 100% quiverful. Your body might handle it just fine. I’m not going to try to convince you that it’s ok to wear jeans with a tunic shirt. That’s my own personal opinion as of the year 2017 with my husband giving me his input.

Let’s give each other that freedom. Hold each other accountable for the true standards found in the Bible, and give grace to each other for all of those gray areas. Makeup, modesty, dating/courtship, eating standards…we look to God for wisdom in all of these areas and try to follow how the Holy Spirit is leading us. But don’t try to pull one or two vague sentences out of the Bible and make it a gospel principle.

Hold yourself accountable before God, but also be open to changing. We have had to change our stance over the years. We used to not celebrate Christmas. Now we LOVE celebrating Christmas! Don’t fall into a rut where you never examine your convictions for years on end. But make sure you examine your convictions with the Lord right beside you, because it can be easy to get weary and you start giving up convictions out of fatigue.

Don’t give up! Keep pressing forward. Reject the man made labels and create a family environment that is full of God’s spirit.

 

 

Modest Monday and a Link Up!

I just returned home from our last convention of the year! We briefly talked about going to Colorado for a convention on our drive home, but I think we are tired and will just stay home. Everyone always asks how we do it all, and it’s definitely not without the help of family! My sister and mother in law watched the 4 children we left at home this time, and my sister was so great about getting them to all their music lessons and orchestra practices! So thankful!

It was such a crazy weekend, I just didn’t have time to take any outfit pictures. I’ll share the one picture that excited me the most this weekend though.

I met Sarah Mackenzie from Read Aloud Revival! She is the author of Teaching From Rest, A Homeschooler’s Guide to Unshakeable Peace. That book has blessed me in so many different ways and I desperately wanted to meet her and give her a hug. She is as cute as can be, and just as sweet and joyful as I had imagined! It was so great to sit in on one of her early morning talks before the vendor hall opened up! If you haven’t read her book yet, make it a priority for your summer break from school!

I came home to children that were longing to talk, so we stayed up late being together as a family. Today is beyond full, I told the children I have one big week of work left and then May should calm down! The Homemaking Bundle starts this Wednesday and I can’t wait to share more information about it with you all!!

Enjoy the link up, and have a great Monday!

Link Up Time!

Please feel free to share posts about anything concerning being a godly, feminine woman. Topics include: modesty, being a wife, mother, homeschooler, homemaker, cooking, sewing, etc.
