I missed out on the seasonal blog hop for Spring, but I’m delighted to join a group of bloggers for the Summer blog hop! It is hard finding bloggers who have a niche in modest dress, so you will definitely want to look around at all the different posts and see the cute outfits that have been put together! The focus on this Blog Hop is wearing skirts in the summer months.
I don’t consider my outfits to be super stylish. I try to look on the more modern side, but my first focus is if the outfit is modest. Being a mom of five children I have to keep things practical as well. Skirts are the easiest for me to wear, and I layer with cami’s a lot.
I like outfits that are easy to put together. I don’t spend a lot of time in the morning on doing fancy hairstyles, it’s either down, or pulled back in a flexi clip. A few times a month I’ll take a couple of extra minutes and braid it before I start my day.
I braided my hair in two braids here, and twisted them together with Mega Tree of Life flexi clip.
If I’m going out I normally put on some foundation, blush, eye shadow and sometimes mascara (I like the L’BRI makeup), but around the house I normally don’t wear makeup. I’m not the type of person that can’t ever be seen without makeup on, and I don’t have a problem going out without it on either.
Using a bobby pin to pull your hair back can add a simple, easy cute look to your outfit.
I keep my makeup simple. I don’t want people to look at me, and the first thought they have is “wow, that girl is wearing a lot of makeup!” I use makeup as a tool, not to totally change how I look.
A striped maxi skirt is very comfortable to wear and it is a modern modest look. I’m so grateful that maxi skirts and dresses are still in style, because you can actually find a long skirt or dress in stores still!
If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been wearing this blue top a lot this summer! I sold it last year at Deborah & Co. and it sold out pretty fast!
I wear this denim skirt about 3 times a week. Sometimes more. I have 2 of them hanging up in my closet! This skirt is my favorite denim skirt. It is versatile, comfortable, it goes with everything, and it’s easy to move around in it and be an active mom.
I wear a lot of clothes that I sell at Deborah & Co. but I also find clothes at Zulily and ThredUP online. Very occasionally I will find something at Target, Kohls, or Marshalls that I buy, but a lot of my tops come from either ThredUP or the thrift store. Lately almost everything has come from ThredUP since I’ve been blessed with a lot of credit to the store. I love getting to share special links like this one, where new customers get $20 in free credit to ThredUP and can get something free!
