Maxi Skirt and Cardigan, second trimester pregnancy outfitI love this maxi skirt. I got it from ThredUP and while it’s not a maternity maxi, it works perfectly right now. The only downside is that I didn’t realize it was a petite skirt! It still looks ok with boots though. My mother-in-law was surprised to see me in boots with heels today. I’m not a huge heels person, and especially not during pregnancy. I have really bad varicose veins, but they didn’t seem to get worse during the time I wore these boots.

I love the second trimester of pregnancy! It's when I normally feel the best! I feel like my hair has been pretty boring lately. I’m growing my bangs out and have to keep them pinned back with a bobby pin. I need to look on Pinterest for some more ideas of what to do with bangs that are growing out!

Mini Flexi Clip from Lilla Rose I did get my hair pulled back in a mini flexi clip. See why I can’t do more elaborate hairstyles? My hair has a mind of it’s own and likes to go where it wants. :)

Having fun during my second trimester! I think I was trying to twirl, and it ended up looking like this. So much for second trimester gracefulness. :) At least I have a smile on my face!

Black boots with a maxi skirt! Black boots and crunchy fall leaves. I love this time of year!

This maxi skirt is really comfortable and I love the mustard color cardigan paired with it! It was date night for Sean and I on Thursday night, and this is the outfit I wore! We celebrated our 12 year anniversary that night and had a lovely evening out. I had not been in Barnes and Noble in years, so after dinner I asked if we could go there and just browse through the store for awhile. It was fun! I signed up for an educators card they offer (homeschoolers qualify!) and saved 20% off because I was buying something from the children’s section (birthday gift!).

Some of you might think I just pull outfits out of my closet and instantly put them together. I have to think through outfits, they don’t just come to me. This outfit was based on some Pinterest inspiration! The ¾ length cardigan was perfect to wear on a rainy chilly night. It is one of the 4 new colors available at Deborah & Co.  The shoes look more red in this picture then they really are…

Scarf and Mustard color cardigan! I was happy to be getting out of the house! We love having date nights and feel they are really strengthening to our marriage.

Caroline_shoesI love these flats that I found on ThredUP!

Dangle Flexi Clip from Lilla Rose I used an X-Small dangle flexi clip from Lilla Rose to pull my hair back.

My wonderful husband and I on our date night! I found a keeper! :) A childhood dream was to marry a man taller than I was. I love our height difference. Honestly, almost all my little silly dreams I had came true with Sean. :)

What I Wore

Maxi – Maternity skirt from ThredUP (Liz Lange brand)

Blue Tank – Kohls

Cardigan – ¾ length sleeve Cardigan from Deborah & Co.

Scarf – I think it came from ThredUP but I can’t remember for sure!

Shoes – ThredUP

Earrings – Mialisa brand

Flexi Clip – Lilla Rose X-Small

Makeup – L’BRI Pure and Natural

(I tried something different and put my lipstick on and then a similar color lip gloss on over it. I liked the results).

I love this long blue maxi dress! It is really comfortable during pregnancy, and looks cute! Modest Monday is up late today, because we ended up being at friends house visiting really late! When we got home (close to midnight) my husband said to just go to bed instead, which I happily did. :) We had a really good time visiting with friends and I feel so encouraged going into a new week.

I wore a ¾ length halftee with this dress for the first time ever. I love the sleeve length and how soft the halftee is! I went ahead and got a medium instead of a small since I’m pregnant and growing. :)

Key necklace from Vintage Pearl If you ever wanted a super up close picture of a Halftee, here it is! This is one of my favorite necklaces, I wear it often. It has a lot of special meaning to me. The text on the necklace says “Sean holds the key to my heart”.

Dressing modestly does not mean you can't wear current styles, such as maxi dresses or skirts! It is nice to be able to truly smile again, and feel it inside! I still rest a lot, but I’m definitely doing better.

Red Floral Maxi Skirt | themodestmomblog.comSo today I feel plump instead of pregnant. Someone came up to me yesterday and asked if I was pregnant, and said I must have gained a lot of weight if I wasn’t. Ummm..thanks! I felt like I was bursting the buttons on this blouse, but I’m just not big enough for a lot of maternity clothes yet!

Pregnant wearing a comfortable maxi skirt! | themodestmomblog.comI totally loved wearing this new skirt. I just got it and the colors are so bright and cheerful. Plus the fabric is really stretchy and comfortable on my plump pregnant tummy. :)

Flexi clips create such an easy elegant hairstyle! I’m wearing the recently re-released Kaleidoscope Flexi Clip. It is one of my favorite clips, so I was really happy to see it return to the Lilla Rose lineup!

Up_Close_CarolineI love layering cami’s under blouses like this. They are just open enough where it wouldn’t be modest for me without a cami, especially with little ones tugging on my blouse!

If you are needing a new camisole, today is a great day to grab one! Use the code SHIPFREE to get any order placed on the Cami page shipped free in the USA! This offer is only valid at Deborah & Co. on Monday, September 29th! 

I’m really excited to announce that I will be doing a 31 Day Series in October! A lot of bloggers choose to do 31 day series, as the Nester blog hosts an enormous link up for the month. The series will be on Building a Modest Wardrobe. The Modest Monday link up will still take place on Mondays, and then I will post the series on days Tuesday-Saturday, taking a break for Sunday. :) It should be a lot of fun!
