I hope everyone had a lovely Mother’s Day! My day started out with a special Mother’s Day surprise during our Sunday School time. The children from each family got up and sang their Mother her favorite hymn. Then the Father’s and children all got up and sang one last hymn to the mothers all together. It was really sweet.
We then had a picnic outside after church with my mother in law, sister and brother in law, went and visited my cousin (who is my mom’s age) and wished her a happy mother’s day, and finished the day out visiting my mom’s grave. I know she is not there, but it is nice to go once in a while and feel like you have a place to stop and honor her memory in that way.
My husband took my pictures and I realized we didn’t get a full length picture taken of my outfit. Sorry about that!
My brown outfit
Knit tan shirt
Brown Jacket-Local Consignment Store
Tiered Khaki Skirt-The Modest Mom (New Boho Skirt)
Sandals-Klogs brand from Zulily
Mama bird necklace – The Vintage Pearl
My favorite sandals-Klog brand from Zulily (a daily deals place, so you won’t find them on there now).
It seemed fitting to wear my mama bird necklace on mother’s day!
This little boy:
Was asking to take some pictures with our camera when he was outside. I think he snapped a sweet one.
Finally, I just want to give you a challenge this week. If you are pondering on the whole subject of modesty, and trying to decide how to implement it in your life, may I offer one thing you could work on during this week?
Don’t show your cleavage.
I was out shopping this week, and I’m just amazed over what ladies are bold enough to wear out. Whether the shirt is falling off of them, or it is so low cut you don’t have to use any imagination for what it is covering, many of the clothing choices I see in public are despicable. I did spot a woman wearing a tiered cotton skirt (similar to the boho skirt) and she had a green John Deere shirt on with it. I had to chuckle because that is so not my style, but I was so happy to finally spot someone in a skirt that I thought it looked wonderful.
Please remember that your cleavage is for your husband to see privately (or no one if you are not married yet!). If you need help in figuring out how to wear outfits that will not reveal cleavage, just leave a comment on the blog and I will try to help.
