Grey Polka Dot Skirt | themodestmomblog.com

It was so sunny, I could barely look at the camera! So this is a squinty smile. :)

I’ll share with you an everyday outfit I wore to the park on Friday.

The feminine, modest clothing side of things is just a coverup if your heart isn't really set on striving to be a woman of God.

 

I found the scarf on ThredUP and knew it was the perfect summer looking scarf.

Gray Flat Shoes

The gray shoes are another ThredUP find. They are super comfortable! I had been looking for a gray pair of shoes for awhile, so I was happy to find them there.

Tree of Life Flexi Clip

I needed to put my hair up (confession, I didn’t get my shower in like I had hoped before church!) and so I just braided it and put a Tree of Life flexi clip in.

What I Wore

Skirt – Ruffle Skirt with gray polka dot fabric from Deborah & Co.

Shirt – Thrift Store (Van Heusen Brand)

Cami – White Full Length Halftee (New item to Deborah & Co!)

Shoes – Gray flats from ThredUP ( Ecco brand)

Scarf – ThredUP (Tabi Brand)

Makeup – L’BRI all natural skincare and makeup

(LAST DAY to get the facial masque for just $16!)

Flexi Clip – Tree of Life from Lilla Rose

Modest Monday and a Link Up!

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

We spent the entire weekend at our local homeschool convention, and we had so much fun! It was the first year we brought Deborah & Co. to a homeschool convention, and it was exciting to meet customers and blog readers. Almost every blog reader that came up and talked to me mentioned Modest Monday and how much they loved it. I was extremely humbled by the enthusiasm of the readers I met. I’m just an ordinary mom, living out my ordinary days, but it’s special to be able to connect with ladies all across the country, and even beyond!

If you have ideas for Modesty Monday, any improvement you would like to see or new ideas, leave me a comment and let me know!

Can you believe I actually look awake in these pictures? This is after two days at the convention. I came home and took these right after we unloaded the van on Saturday night. Adrenaline must have still been present. :) I wore clothing from Deborah & Co. both days to the convention so ladies could see what they actually looked like on someone. We had ladies trying on skirts in the booth over their clothes! I totally didn’t expect that to happen, but thought it was a great idea for the brave. :)

I love wearing makeup from L'BRI, as their products are natural and the foundation goes on so smoothly! | themodestmomblog.com

I wore my special necklace from Vintage Pearl that says “Sean holds the key to my heart” on it. Yes, I’m a helpless romantic at heart, but my husband has my total heart.

 I’m thankful the days are getting a little warmer and it looks like spring is actually here! The colors in this striped maxi skirt make me think of spring.

Freestyle Flexi Clip for an easy way to pull back your hair! | themodestmomblog.comI pulled my hair back in a freestyle flexi clip. I met readers at the convention asking me about the flexi clips. “Do they really work? I have too much hair, they would never hold it!” My response was always “YES! They really do work and we have mini through mega sizes, so it’s almost impossible to have to much hair for these clips!”

What I Wore

Skirt – Striped Teal Maxi Skirt from Deborah & Co.

Purple Tank – ThredUP

Cardigan – Hand me Down from my mother-in-law

(yes, I’m around the same size as my MIL, and we have shared clothes. Fun!)

Shoes – Black flats from thrift store

Flexi Clip – Extra Small Freestyle clip from Lilla Rose

Makeup – L’BRI all natural skincare and makeup

(Ladies tried on samples of the foundation at the convention and everyone liked it! You can order skincare samples that last 2-3 weeks for just $6.50! The first ingredient is Aloe Vera unlike many other skincare lines that have water as the base.)

Green Polka Dot Skirt from Deborah & Co. | themodestmomblog.com

Sean and I went to the National WWI museum Friday to take pictures for a college project. While there it seemed the perfect time to take pictures for Modest Monday. :)

A soft and vintage looking green polka dot skirt from Deborah and Co! | themodestmomblog.com

The green polka dot skirt is one of the newest skirts added to Deborah & Co. This was my first time to wear it. I honestly wasn’t sure if I was going to love it or not. That might sound funny since I sell it. I thought it would be a great addition to the website and I know quite a few ladies love polka dots.

Once I put it on though, I fell in love with it! It is very soft, I love how it is lined and I don’t even need a slip underneath it. The length is long enough to be modest, but it doesn’t look awkward.  This is one skirt I see myself wearing a lot of this spring and summer.

Such a cute looking polka dot skirt! | themodestmomblog.com

The red shoes finished the outfit to me. I loved the pop of color they brought and made the outfit look more vintage.

Modest Monday and a special birthday sale!

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

It was a super busy weekend! My daughter and I share the same birthday, and this year we decided to invite a few of her friends over for a princess party on Friday. I’ll share pictures of that later, but it was a lot of fun. Saturday we had a family birthday party, and Sunday was a busy day of church and meetings.

In between all of the fun, I managed to take these two pictures for Modest Monday of Carrianna, and that was all the pictures I took for today!
