Out for Ice Cream - The Modest Mom

Out For Ice Cream

Do you ever get out for an ice cream treat, just you and your husband? We have been given several gift cards to ice cream places, and recently went to Coldstone together. It was so much fun, and so yummy! I can’t imagine taking all my children there (we would probably spend $50!), but it’s fun for a date night.

And yes, I realize this has nothing to do with the actual outfit. Except that I would like to wear that outfit to go out for ice cream. Tonight. Alone with Sean. It’s not happening though. We have family night at church, which is fun as well. :)

My favorite item from this outfit is the lace cardigan. I could see that going with lots of different outfits. It looks light weight for summer.

 Liberty Dress on Sale at Deborah & Co. Today and tomorrow the Liberty Dress is on sale for $10 off! This makes a great fun dress for the summer months, and I love how patriotic it looks!

Modest Monday and a Link Up

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

I had big plans for this Modest Monday. I’m finally going through a really good class online called Shoot Fly Shoot on taking pictures using the Manual setting on my Canon DSL camera. I’ve wanted to learn for a long time so it’s a fun summer project!

We went to a park Friday night for some fun family time. I took the camera and practiced taking pictures, but the sun was so bright it was hard to get very many good ones. I wore an outfit I wanted to share for Modest Monday, but at the end of play time (and right before pictures) Sophia decided to explode through her diaper. Did I mention I was wearing her in a carrier? :) I was covered!

However, we still managed to get creative and take one picture.

At the park wearing a skirt for play time with my children.

I changed her and just held her over all the stains on my shirt. 😉 And it wasn’t until I sat down that I noticed I was surrounded by cigarette butts. Ha! I tried to crop them out of the picture but I couldn’t get them all.

I guess that’s just life when you are trying to juggle being a mommy blogger. 😉

If you are wondering, my maxi skirt is from Deborah & Co., my top is from ThredUP, I’m wearing a halftee tank to layer under the v-neck shirt, my shoes I just got from ThredUP (my family is still deciding if they like them, and honestly I am also), and my necklace is from Paparazzie Accessories. My friend just joined as a consultant so I bought a necklace from her.

So then I thought I’d try to take pictures again Sunday. I turned the camera on and the battery died. Problem is I’m not sure where my battery charger for the camera is right now. Ha!

Hopefully next week taking pictures will go a little smoother. :)

Last night I went to a used homeschool book sale and ran into some blog readers there. It’s always so much fun to meet you all! I was juggling my new baby, trying to shop, and help run our table we had there. My husband was going to come and run our table but one of our children became sick at the last minute. Thankfully my sister was there to help with the table and a really sweet friend offered to hold Sophia so I could shop! Moments like that make me so grateful for friends, and especially for moms a little ahead of me in life who know what it’s like. :)

I really like wearing the color blue, and I like striped shirts so this outfit is pretty much perfect to me. :)

Casually Sophisticated - The Modest Mom

Skirt ~ Top ~ Cami ~ Sandals ~ Bracelet ~ Clutch ~ Flexi Clip

Chambray shirts are so popular and I really like how they look. I finally found one that I like and ordered it from ThredUP, so I’m hoping it fits ok when it arrives. Unlike denim shirts, chambray is nice to wear in the spring and summer since it is light weight.

Afternoons on the Boardwalk - The Modest Mom

Skirt ~ Blouse ~ Cami ~ Purse ~ Sandals ~ Earrings ~ Flexi Clip

 I’ve been braiding my hair and putting it up or in a side braid a lot. Besides being hot, Sophia loves to pull on my hair! Flexi clips and headbands are super helpful for getting my hair up.
