Modest Monday (Little Girl Edition!) and a Link Up!

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

This just wasn’t the week for me to take Modest Monday pictures. I tried doing them Saturday at my sister’s house but I forgot the card for the camera. Sunday I was so tired I could barely stay awake in church, and really didn’t feel like trying to put on a smile for a camera. :)

Since we were celebrating Deborah’s 3rd birthday, I asked Sean to just snap a picture of her that I would share.

Deborah turns three!

This is a classic Deborah look. She looks very serious, but as those who are closest to her know, this serious look is full of joy. She can be full of smiles and giggles, and never ceases to make us all laugh!

I love her little outfit. I sewed this skirt quite awhile ago, it probably was for our older daughter at the time! It was crazy that I never got it finished, there was only one small thing left to do on it. My sister saw it sitting in my pile the other day and took it home, saying she would finish it. The next day it was done. So thankful for a sweet sister!

Her shirt is a Tea brand shirt I found on ThredUP. I get most of the girls shirts from ThredUP, thanks to credit I earn. I like getting them shirts from Gymboree the most, as they seem to hold up really well and can be passed down.

The boots are so adorable, you can’t see them very well in this picture. My dad and step-mom gave them to her for Christmas. They are from Kohls and are on sale right now!

Modest Monday (Denim Skirt) and a Link Up!

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

It was a rough week with the pregnancy and I’ve slowed w-a-y down in my energy level. I had to make an emergency trip to my midwife because I was having a lot of early labor symptoms, which I’m not ready for at 7 months!! Saturday I woke up, took my morning pills with a big glass of water and went right to the bathroom and threw it all up and was exhausted for the day. (Sorry if that’s tmi!). So overall, I’m ready for a new week to be here!

Denim Skirt with Black Striped Top and White Cardigan

I had one outfit left from my Six Ways to Style A Denim Skirt post that I didn’t share. I came home from church Sunday and promptly took a long nap, so I’m using that photo for Modest Monday. :) I wore this same top and white cardigan with a black skirt to run errands on Saturday. It’s really comfortable! The weather has actually been warm enough here in Missouri to wear something like this.

This week has also been the start of the third trimester sleepless nights. I usually can sleep for 3-5 hours, and then I’m awake for about 3 hours. Sunday morning I fell back asleep and Sean woke me up with less than 30 minutes to get myself and the 2 youngest girls ready for church!

I was SO thankful that I had put my hair in my favorite overnight curlers. A friend had told me about the Wrap Snap & Go curlers and they work really well for my hair. I quickly took them out of my hair, pulled some hair back in an XS flexi clip and was done with my hair.

Wrap Snap and Go Curlers! So easy to use!

Modest Monday (Black Maxi Dress) and A Link Up!

Black Maxi Dress for Third Trimester

I finally got over my head cold this week! Besides a lingering cough, I felt pretty good Sunday and was able to go to church again. My dress is new, I wasn’t going to order any more maternity clothes since I’m in my third trimester, but I couldn’t pass up this dress from Pink Blush Maternity for $15.

Black Maxi Dress with Pink Shrug

It is really soft and comfortable. I did have to laugh when I first put it on, the totally solid black look with long sleeves didn’t look like me. It was just a bit…dark. But once I added the pink shrug to it I really liked the dress. It’s a little lower cut than what I normally wear, so I wore an Undercover Mama tank underneath it, and remembered to put a hand up top on my dress whenever I bent over. ;)

Third Trimester Glow!

I don’t own large fashion statement necklaces, so a simple pearl necklace and pearl earrings finished the outfit for me.

What I Wore

Dress – Pink Blush Maternity (it looks like this particular dress is no longer available)

Shrug – ThredUP (Gently Used Clothing – get a free $10 credit as a new customer!)

Shoes – Thrift Store

Makeup – L’BRI Pure and Natural (check out the new website they have! It is awesome, and has lot of the ingredients listed beside each product. All the skincare sets are on sale this month!)

Modest Monday and a Link Up!

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

It’s the last Modest Monday of the year! I can’t believe 2014 is ending, but I’m really excited to see what 2015 brings! Doing this weekly link up takes time, but I always love seeing all the blogs that come and share their great articles.

I’m going to highlight some of my favorite Modest Monday outfits from this past year. Doing these link ups definitely require me to be more creative with my wardrobe and try to mix and match as much as I can!

Denim Rainbow Maternity Skirt with Cardigan

I don’t normally wear yellow, but I really like how this outfit turned out. The maternity cami is a new favorite.

Maxi Skirt and Cardigan, second trimester pregnancy outfit

Another outfit with my favorite maternity cami! I really like the pink with the striped maxi skirt and boots.

Long maxi skirt with sweater top! I love how comfortable this outfit is. | themodestmomblog.com

I quickly took these pictures while we were at the lake one night, and the outfit was a big hit when I posted it! I guess everyone liked the color of the top. :)

A black dress is always a good essential item to have in your wardrobe!

This outfit is a bit different than what I normally wear. The classic black dress, it’s nice to have one in your closet if possible!

Dress with sweater shrug and boots. I couldn't wear this dress in January without my warm fleece lined leggings from Deborah & Co! (http://www.deborahandco.com/fleece-lined-leggings/ )

My country girl look. ;)
