Green Polka Dot Skirt with Pink Cardigan and sweater

We went to a wedding Saturday night and this is the outfit I wore. If I’m being honest, I put very little effort into this outfit. It was a busy Saturday, full of running errands, cleaning house (at the end of the day you couldn’t even tell I did anything, anybody else relate to that?!!), and we actually left our 5 month old, exclusively nursing baby with my sister while we went to the wedding! Trying to make sure that she was fed before we left was a high priority, and thankfully she did great!

The theme of the wedding was 1920’s, and you were encouraged to come dressed that way. I thought about actually doing that, but realized I’d have to go buy a whole new outfit to get that look. The practical side of me decided against it, so I just picked something from my closet and went. :)

Hair in braids with Mega Size flexi clip

It was an outside wedding so I put my hair up to avoid being hot. For this hairstyle I french braid each side, and then I gently tie my hair together in several sections, tuck the ends behind the braids and use a Mega size flexi clip to hold it all together. Yes, I have very thick hair. :)

What I Wore

Skirt – Deborah & Co. (no longer available on there)

Cardigan – Deborah & Co.

Shoes – Kohls

Flexi Clip – Lilla Rose

Makeup – L’BRI Pure and Natural

I thought I would share a few blog posts that have blessed me recently!

Why I Keep A Clutter-Free Home – I found myself agreeing with this post, and longing to be able to do this. However, we don’t have a few acres in the country. We have a very small yard, and in the winter months especially I need to be able to keep them busy! If we are ever blessed to live in the country I will be purging more toys. I have a large cabinet for them right now.

On Being Outnumbered and Teaching From Rest – “I’m finding that the hardest part of homeschooling with toddlers and babies underfoot is that the vision that lived in my head since I first dreamed up this crazy idea to homeschool looks nothing like my reality. ” Yes and Amen. I have such dreams…most days they are crushed by the reality of six children that don’t share those dreams.

You Can’t Keep Sin Out – What I got out of this post is summed up in one sentence that Amy wrote. “We MUST stop believing we can follow a formula or method and reap perfection. ” A good reminder!

Becoming Who I Am – If you have lost your mom, this post is good to read.

Finally, here is a new video that we made for our Character Badge Kickstarter Campaign that shows what our children think about Character Badges. We think it’s pretty funny. :)  (If you are reading this in an email, click here to watch it!). There are 20 days left to make a pledge to get your Character Badge set, if we don’t reach our funding goal than we will not be able to manufacture these. So now is your only chance!

Modern Countryside - The Modest Mom


Oh this outfit makes me look forward to fall! My sister actually tried this jacket on when we were at Maurices together, she liked it but they didn’t have her size at the store. The scarf looks so cute with it!

Have a great weekend!

Huge Lilla Rose Sale, Plus 11 NEW Clips!

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

Guess what? Lilla Rose has a brand new shopping cart! The whole shopping experience is different, and I think it’s a lot easier. Instead of searching clips by different sizes, you just click on each image of the clip you like and all the sizes are shown there.

When they created a new shopping cart they upgraded their servers. Faithful shoppers with Lilla Rose knows that sales can sometimes be difficult to navigate, the website can get overloaded and it’s hard to get through. The company is quite hopeful that you won’t have any problems at all during this sale, with the new servers in place!

Lilla Rose Huge Sale With up to 30% off and 10% off everything! Starting today there is a huge sale, with 10% off everything, 15% off the new styles, and 30% off select items! Plus there is free shipping on orders of $40 and up! Amazing! 

On top of all of that, we are going to do a mystery hostess party! One person that places an order will walk away with up to $150 in free products, up to six half price items, plus a hostess only flexi clip! (If you already have a Lilla Rose consultant, please stay loyal with her!)

They have been working on coming up with some new flexi clips to release, and I love what they came up with! They are in very limited quantity though, so don’t wait to place your order!
