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.

Feminine Fridays at The Modest Mom

 

Once again the week has just flown by! Between doing school and business work it’s been super busy. I found a new way to put my hair up in a flexi clip, so that was a fun little discovery. 😉

I love those earrings and the purse! Ok I also like the top because it’s one we offer. 😉

Skirt ~ Top ~ Sandals ~ Earrings ~ Lip Balm ~ Flexi Clip

I sometimes laugh at myself. I love lip balm! I have more than I need in my purse, just because I love it so much. I’ve found some other natural lip balms I like better than Burt’s Bee, but I’ve used them in the past.

'Tis Elegant - The Modest Mom

‘Tis Elegant

Dress ~ Shrug ~ Necklace ~ Sandals ~ Hair Sticks from Lilla Rose

This dress is beautiful, and it’s greatly discounted on Modcloth right now!! I love the shrug with it, perfect for going to a wedding or some other nice occasion!

Modest Monday and a Link Up (Baby Blessing Edition!)

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

Sunday was a special day for our family as Sophia had her baby blessing at our church! I’m always nervous, hoping the baby will not cry the whole time but she did awesome!

Baby blessing of Sophia at our church! Such a special day!

All of the other girl’s blessing dresses have been homemade. This was the first dress that we actually bought, and I hope she will forgive me later in life. 😉 It’s important to me that they each have a special dress of their own, so they can pass it down to their daughters one day if they want (I don’t have a special dress, being the youngest child I don’t have any special clothes saved back).

A sweet baby blessing dress!

I found her dress on Zulily and it was a great deal! Baby bonnets are a favorite of mine, so I loved that it came with one. :)

Sean and I couldn’t love this girl any more. I don’t worry about not having enough love for all my children, every one is so different and unique. Thankfully we have never had issues with sibling jealously towards a new baby. They are loved and kissed on all the time!

Family love! I love having a large family and think of every child as a blessing!

I found this maxi dress at Costco and realized I’d be able to nurse in it using a halftee! They really have been such a blessing for the pregnant and breastfeeding years, and the normal seasons of life as well. :)

What I Wore

Maxi Dress – Costco (They are around $18 there!)

Halftee – I wore the ¾ sleeve just because my short sleeve one was dirty. :)

Sandals – Wedges from Kohls

Flexi Clip – Mini clip from Lilla Rose (Don’t forget about the free shipping special going on for new consultants, and the informational Facebook party I’m doing Thursday night!)

Makeup – L’BRI Pure and Natural
