Modest Monday and a Link Up!

I was ever so glad to see Sunday come! It’s been a super busy week of scraping wallpaper off of our new house and I’m using muscles that never get used otherwise, so I’m pretty sore!

This will be a quick Modest Monday post as it’s already a super late evening, and I have a lot going on this week! I’m really hoping to have the wallpaper all finished by the end of this week. Fingers crossed!

What I Wore

Skirt – Honey & Lace

Shirt – Worthington Brand Petite length shirt

(I’m not petite, but my sister talked me into trying some petite length shirts. She said they don’t look as sloppy and I really like it!)

Sandals – I found them on Zulily a few years ago

Necklace – Tassel necklace from JCPenny (similar found here)

Bobby Pin – Currant Bobby Pin from Lilla Rose (These seriously hold all day long!)

We went away for the weekend to my Dad’s house, so we could spend Father’s Day there with him and my Step-Mom.

What.A.Weekend.

Little miss Sophia who is 2 decided to keep things interesting. My Dad and step-mom built a really nice house a few years ago, so everything is in nice condition. She had on a swim diaper and sat down on the cream colored stairs and slid all the way down, leaving a trail of poop behind on the carpet. I wanted to disappear when I saw that!

We no sooner got that all cleaned up, then I realized she had disappeared again and was sitting on a bed eating chocolate caramels, and of course getting chocolate all over the white bedspread. So once again, I go downstairs and tell my step-mom about this and we get the comforter going in the wash.

Then I had a huge battle with her over eating chocolate cake in her high chair. I finally won, but oh not fun!

Did I mention that we forgot her pack n play? Oh yes, we really did. She sleeps good, but she is very particular about sleeping in her pack n play since she is used to it. She slept with me the last night, and Sean slept downstairs in the basement. LOL She rolled off the bed in the middle of the night and woke up screaming, which woke me up in a panic.

Whew. It was a weekend I won’t forget. Otherwise we had a great time, we visited Daniel Boone’s home which was a lot of fun for my 11 year old son who adores Daniel Boone and Davy Crocket!

I just got this striped maxi skirt from the Swap website. It’s a Gap brand skirt, and I love how comfortable it is! The only striped skirt that Gap has on their website right now is this wrap Midi skirt and I’m not sure how that would be. You could always check in the Swap website though, they sell gently used clothing and I’ve been super happy with the clothes I’ve gotten! Plus you get 20% off if you are a new customer using this link!

I’ll tell you a tip. I took a course on clothing and fashion and they said if you wanted your stomach to look smaller, don’t wear a white shirt. I really do think it’s true. A solid blue shirt would look more flattering with this. Does any other mom get tired of trying to disguise a tummy who struggles with Diastasis Recti, and not wanting to look pregnant? *Sigh* The struggle is real you all! So I put pictures up to be honest, and to let you know that you are not alone!

Moving on…here are my favorite lace up sandals. I can’t find a link for something just like these. Here are some similar sandals, but they are not exact.  Sean found these sandals for me at Marshalls in the Spring!

Finally, an XS Flexi Clip to hold my hair back.

What I Wore

Skirt – Gap Brand found on Swap website

Shirt – Liz Clairborne Shirt (lots more colors available, highly recommend it!)

Sandals – Similar ones

Flexi Clip – Lilla Rose

It’s officially summer and I’m loving it! We visited with friends on Saturday evening and all the children played in the sprinkler, threw water balloons, and had fun outside all evening. I love summer play! My children do complain about how hot it gets, which is why we start our school back up again in August. They never want to be outside when it’s super hot, unless they are playing in water. 🙂

Talking about summer…this feels like a good summer outfit! Sandals, a comfy maxi dress and a halftee!

I saw a blogger wear this dress, and finally decided to order it after hearing how much she loved it. I’ve never ordered anything from Nordstrom before, I don’t think I’ve even looked on the website before! I always had in my head that everything was super expensive there, but this knit maxi dress was affordable!

The maxi dress is super comfortable, and it would even work for nursing mothers! I love that it has adjustable straps, so you could pull it up even higher and wear it with a jacket.

Right now there are 4 different colors available on Nordstrom. The Barberry color was just added and I love it!

The only thing I don’t like about the dress is the length. I’m 5’5″ and I wish it was slightly longer, though I don’t have to worry about tripping at all with the current length. For all of you who are a little shorter and looking for a maxi dress, this is a great one to get!

I curled my hair with hot rollers, and used one of the new leather headbands from Lilla Rose. Those headbands are amazing! They don’t give me headbands, and the leather ones really keep your hair in place all day long!

What I wore

Dress – Lush Knit Maxi Dress (size medium)

Cami – Halftee with short sleeves

Sandals – TOMS brand

Necklace – Silver Tassel Necklace (this one is similar)

Hairband – Lilla Rose Jean hairband

Summer brings garage sales…and I’m trying to work on gathering up items to bring to my mother in law’s garage sale. I always want to purge my house more, but it’s a lot of work to do that! I only have a few days left to get things together, so it’s top priority the next few days!

My sister and I went shopping together on Saturday and we had so much fun! We spent quite awhile at JCPenny, trying in clothes and getting each others opinion. It’s way more fun to go shopping with a friend or sister for clothes. We have different styles, which is probably better so we are not constantly buying the same items.

I’ve gone to Sephora twice now for some foundation samples. I’m trying to decide if I want to just join Younique to get their kit and keep using their makeup, or find a brand at Sephora that I like and just go with that. In this picture I have Tarte foundation on, which I’ve read is one of the most natural brands you can find at Sephora. I like it, but I’m going to use it a few more times to see what I really think. So far I’m still finding the Younique foundation to have the best coverage.

This Choose Happy Shirt was one I found at JCPenny and instantly knew it was for me. I love how feminine it is with the pretty flowers, and of course love the message! It’s on sale right now for a really good price as well!

What mama doesn’t need to be reminded to choose happy throughout their day?
