Modest Monday and a Link Up!

We woke up Sunday morning to about 2 inches of snow on the ground, something we were not expecting. We don’t watch the news or weather on tv so we are sometimes behind the times of what might be happening! The children were delighted, but I’m not happy that it’s supposed to be below zero today and tomorrow. Yuck! I’m a shivering eskimo over here, I get terribly cold during my first trimester (I’m guessing just the strain on my thyroid??) and so this cold weather has not been fun.

I’m very thankful for the jacuzzi tub that we have in our master bedroom. Don’t let your mind instantly go to some beautiful bathroom, it’s horribly outdated, the floors are unfinished and the tub is probably one of the original jacuzzi tubs. But the jets still work, and until we update the bathroom that tub is staying!! Sean had suggested gutting the bathroom before we moved in but I told him I would enjoy that tub, even though it’s not the prettiest to look at. 😉

After that long explanation about our bathroom, all I wanted to say is that I’ve been enjoying some warm baths on these cold nights!

Yes, a Modest Monday post where I’m in jeans. 🙂 I found these at Costco and I love them because they have an elastic waistband instead of a button. So perfect for my first trimester (and honestly any other time after six children!).

I received several JCPenny gift cards for Christmas, so I went shopping and found this tunic shirt. It comes down lower in the back and covers my bottom, which is my preference when wearing pants. It’s also very soft and warm!

These boots have been a favorite of mine all winter. They are the highest pair of boots I’ve ever worn, but surprisingly they are pretty comfortable. I just don’t wear them all day long. They look like TOMS boots but for over half the price! I ordered mine on Amazon.

I’m wearing Younique makeup, just a more natural look with the Younique lipstick color of Affluent. It’s a very natural lipstick color and not very bright. I’m hoping to do a video soon on exactly what makeup I’m using and why.

What I Wore

Jeans – Gloria Vanderbilt Jeans

Tunic Top – Liz Clairborne Tunic

Boots – Dream Pairs brand from Amazon (I have the Khaki color)

Hairband – sold at Deborah & Co. (different color available here).

Makeup – Younique

Modest Monday and a Link Up!

I’m sorry the link up is late today! I crashed last night and decided it could wait until the morning to put up. 🙂

I’ve actually been feeling better this week! I’m not nausea free, but I’ve only thrown up once this pregnancy, which is so amazing! We had an ultrasound and it was so nice to see a little tiny baby being formed. Such a miracle! My fatigue is still there for sure, but I’m able to eat and I really appreciate that. So far sweets have sounded horrible, so that helps me have a good diet. 🙂

It’s been really cold and wet here, we managed to get outside in-between it raining yesterday.

I’ve been so cold (a common problem when I’m pregnant), and all I want to wear is a snuggly sweatshirt and warm sweatpants. Sounds so flattering, right? I actually don’t have either item, so I went to JCPenny Saturday and found this shirt. It’s so warm and snuggly!

What I Wore

Skirt – Used to be sold at Deborah & Co.

Shirt – St. John’s Bay long sleeve shirt 

Hairband – Lilla Rose

Makeup – Younique

Modest Monday and a Link Up!

Happy New Year!! I’m so excited to see what 2018 will bring!!

It’s freezing cold here. Literally. Today was 1 degree! I was NOT interested in going outside to take pictures, so you get this slightly dark picture in front of our mantel. 🙂 At least it’s a picture! I haven’t been putting makeup on….the first trimester fatigue is very real and strong and makeup is low on my list.

The sweater and skirt are from Stitch Fix and I use this sweater with so many different outfits. It’s so soft! I’m thrilled that Stitch Fix decided to extend their rare offer and allow first time customers to have a box sent to them totally free! The $20 styling fee is waived until the end of January, so now is your chance to try it out!

Here is the latest Stitch Fix package I received in the mail! I kept the pink cardigan. 🙂

I’m wearing the popular colors on parade Flexi Clip in a XS size. They just released this style in a beautiful pearls and silver color for January only! It’s stunning!

This is the Penelope clip!

Modest Monday and a Link Up!

Our 4th child turns 8 on Tuesday, and I thought it would be fun to put her pictures up for Modest Monday this week. I can’t believe that I’m going to have 4 children who are 8 and older! Time is flying by!

This maxi dress is from Target, and I can’t even reminder if we bought it new or at a consignment sale.  I love that we can keep wearing this dress in the winter months using a long sleeve Halftee for girls!

We found these sandals at Marshalls and we couldn’t resist getting them! We try to find shoes at consignment sales or thrift stores, but sometimes it’s just easier to get them at a good price when you find them new. 🙂 She was thrilled (being the second girl she gets a lot of hand me downs) and we have gotten a lot of good use out of them.

I used this X-Small Rose Gold Trinitee Flexi Clip to pull her hair back. This clip is sold out in the Rose Gold color but it is available still in the Silver color here.

I hope you all have a lovely week leading up to Christmas!
