Casual maxi skirt

This week I tried to take some everyday pictures for Modest Monday. I wanted to show you what I wear for being at home with the children all day, cleaning house, running errands, or going to evening church on Wednesday nights.

We used our iPhone to snap these pictures and only managed to get two different outfits taken. It’s amazing how fast the week goes!

The gray skirt I’m wearing is a Gap maxi skirt I found on ThredUP. It’s one of my favorites because it is so comfy and goes with a lot of different shirts. The shirt I found on ThredUP as well. I’m wearing an Undercover Mama tank under it, so I can nurse discreetly even without a nursing cover if needed.

The sunglasses I found at Marshalls this spring. Does it sound silly to say it they make me happy whenever I put them on? :)

Purple Maxi Skirt with my favorite brand of tops from Kohls!

 

I wore this outfit to a homeschool book sale. I found a favorite brand of tops I like that are sold at Kohls, and I have a search saved on ThredUP to find them. The Elle brand seems to be feminine and fits well. I should have layered this top with a halftee but once again I wore an Undercover Mama tank with it.

Maxi skirt and blouse

It’s been a busy week! Since we are on a school break I’ve been conquering the house! :) A lot of different things have inspired me to do a big purge, so I’ve been going room by room and have quite a huge pile of things to get rid of. Between taking care of Sophia and doing this purge, that’s about all I’m getting done each day. Our goal is to have a garage sale the end of this month.

My children make me laugh and I can't imagine life without them!

The children are happy to have downtime to play. Even though we are on school break, I’m still catching my boys reading through the Usborne World History book and telling me all sorts of interesting facts. Carrianna is reading lots of Dick and Jane stories to herself, and music lessons of violin and cello still keep going on over the summer. Learning never ends!

Flexi Clips are wonderful for busy moms!

I’m thankful for Flexi Clips! They make fixing my hair as a busy mom so easy. :)

I love sandal weather! The Essie Nail Polish color for 2015 is some of my favorite colors!

I love sandals! I found these at Marshalls last year. The nail polish color is from Essie’s 2015 Spring color line.

Gray maxi skirt with blue sheer top and cami under it for Modest Monday.

I appreciate maxi skirts the most when I’m postpartum. I used to like skirts with elastic waists as they are forgiving to a changing (hopefully shrinking!) waistline, but I find that maxi skirts are even more comfortable.

Quite a few of my maxi skirts can be folded over at the waist. I’ve found that when you are postpartum and not wanting to draw attention to your stomach area even more, it’s best to keep the material unfolded. It gives a smoother appearance to the waistline.

Grace Clip from Lilla Rose for the month of May

I curled my hair in my favorite overnight curlers, but we took these pictures in the evening so my hair doesn’t look nearly as curly as it was in the morning. I used the lovely Grace flexi clip that is only available in May to pull some hair back. You can’t see it very well in this picture, but it’s a mother of pearl flexi clip that is beautiful!

Simple makeup for a fast and easy look!

I told Sean this weekend that I’m ready to start climbing out of the barely surviving mode. Sophia is now six weeks and just this weekend she has started to sleep better at night! I want to do more than just wake up and throw some clothes on to start my day. Curling my hair Friday night took 10 minutes at the most.

Saturday I put some foundation on from L’BRI and some lip butter from my Ipsy bag. Nothing glamorous, but it’s a start. One small step at a time, and celebrate each little thing!

What I Wore

Skirt – Gap brand maxi from ThredUP

Top – Decree brand from Thrift Store

Sandals – Zulily

Earrings – Mialisia

Flexi Clip – Lilla Rose

Makeup – Foundation from L’BRI

If you noticed, I took a break from blogging last week.

It wasn’t a true break though. We have been shipping hundreds of scarves out, thanks to being a bonus partner with the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle! It’s been really crazy, I’ve been thankful for friends and family who have come to help!

The post office finally asked what was going on, because we bring about 8 tubs full of packages up at a time. Everyone was all ears to finally figure out what was in all the packages! :)
Six_Children

 

If shipping scarves wasn’t a big enough reason to keep me busy, these six children are! :) Sophia is a fussy baby, so I’m holding her a lot, which is ok. Now that I’ve had six I know how fast these first few months go!

Maxi skirts with elastic waists work great for postpartum moms!

 

This is definitely a postpartum mom look. I’m no Kate Middleton! :) All my skirts are either stretchy maxi skirts or they have elastic waists. It’s ok, I’m only about 5 weeks out from giving birth!

Dangle Earrings

 

I don’t normally wear dangle earrings this big, but I decided to try something different. There is a really sweet girl that sells homemade jewelry at our local homeschool convention. For the past two years I have gotten something from her and these earrings are what I purchased this year. They are fun to wear! :)

*Today is the last day to purchase the women’s Rainbow Denim skirt and the maternity Rainbow Denim skirt on sale! These only go on sale a few times a year!*

What I Wore

Skirt – ThredUP (XXI brand)

Cami’s – I layer an Undercover Mama nursing tank and a Halftee tank together.

Cardigan – ThredUP

Shoes – ThredUP

Earrings – Meadowland Designs
