Green Polka Dot Skirt with Pink Cardigan and sweater

We went to a wedding Saturday night and this is the outfit I wore. If I’m being honest, I put very little effort into this outfit. It was a busy Saturday, full of running errands, cleaning house (at the end of the day you couldn’t even tell I did anything, anybody else relate to that?!!), and we actually left our 5 month old, exclusively nursing baby with my sister while we went to the wedding! Trying to make sure that she was fed before we left was a high priority, and thankfully she did great!

The theme of the wedding was 1920’s, and you were encouraged to come dressed that way. I thought about actually doing that, but realized I’d have to go buy a whole new outfit to get that look. The practical side of me decided against it, so I just picked something from my closet and went. :)

Hair in braids with Mega Size flexi clip

It was an outside wedding so I put my hair up to avoid being hot. For this hairstyle I french braid each side, and then I gently tie my hair together in several sections, tuck the ends behind the braids and use a Mega size flexi clip to hold it all together. Yes, I have very thick hair. :)

What I Wore

Skirt – Deborah & Co. (no longer available on there)

Cardigan – Deborah & Co.

Shoes – Kohls

Flexi Clip – Lilla Rose

Makeup – L’BRI Pure and Natural

It’s been a good week. Super busy, but that seems to be life. :)
Purple Lace Maxi Skirt

The private Facebook group that I set up for sharing modest outfits has been really encouraging! Sometimes Facebook groups can be difficult to admin if people don’t get along, or don’t want to follow the rules. This group has been such a joy, and I’ve been inspired by some of the outfits posted!

Black Shirt with a Purple Lace Maxi Skirt

I had a necklace on with this outfit, but I had to take it off at church because Miss Sophia would not stop trying to grab it and chew on it! Since it was a locket that could be opened with charms inside, I didn’t want to risk her choking on something.

Braid with a Flexi Clip

 

 

Our air has not been working for the past few days so I’ve been extra hot. I wore my hair down to church in the mini flexi clip but when we got home I needed it up! I had matching clips so I thought it looked ok. :)

I’ve had a lot of good discussions with my husband this week. Between reading an amazing new homeschool book, launching the Character Badges Kickstarter Campaign and talking about our future as a self employed family and how that will look, and then reading about the latest with Josh Duggar, we have had a lot to talk through.

Friday night I sat and read several pages of Teaching From Rest to Sean and was crying by the time I was done. So many good things in a small book that describes how I want my homeschool days to go. And it reaches far beyond just what a homeschool schedule should look like, the heart of the matter is reaching my children, forming a relationship with them that will last when the rough years might hit.

Time is short and precious. Life is unpredictable, but one thing stands firm. God is unshakable, unchangeable, and will forever remain the same. When our world feels turbulent, we can rest in the peace that only comes from the Lord. Sure, I get panicky at times thinking of raising my children in this crazy world we live in. But I know that the Lord’s word is true, and He will prevail over all evil!

Keep pressing on!

And with that…here is the link up!

Whew! What an exciting and exhausting week! Thursday night we attended the Royals game (yes, we live in KC and my boys love baseball! I am learning more about it now that my boys are into it). Just Sean and I went with the two boys (and of course Sophia), and while I was nervous to bring a baby to a long baseball game way past her bedtime, she did great! I brought along my nursing cover and just fed her whenever she wanted to snuggle. :)

At the Royals Baseball Game, wearing my baby in a Tula carrier!

The boys had me wear one of their baseball caps. :)

Friday night we had a birthday party for my sister and dad. My sister loves the show Shark Tank, so Sean made up a Shark Tank game for us all to play. He put random things in bags and created names of items we were pitching to the judges. We even downloaded the Shark Tank music to make it seem more real. It was so funny to see what people came up with!

My boys have been in a baseball league with boys from our church. Saturday was their final day and all the families came to watch, and have a meal together afterwards. This is the outfit I wore to the game.

Pink shirt, blue striped maxi skirt and a hat for a hot summer day!

The camera didn’t pick up the stripes very well, it’s just a blue and white striped maxi skirt. I recently went shopping at Cato’s and found this shirt there. The hat is from ThredUP.

I always feel like Pippy Longstocking when I wear my hair in two braids, but sometimes it’s nice to wear it like this when I’m going to be outside for the day.

Pink sweater with chambray skirt from eShakti

I’ve worn this skirt on the blog before, but I love the versatility of the skirt. You can create so many different looks with this skirt!

Chambray skirt with pink sweater

I wore an Undercover Mama tank under the sweater so I could easily nurse. I didn’t like the look of the sweater unbuttoned so as soon as pictures were over I buttoned the rest of the sweater. :)

We went with some friends for a picnic after church Sunday. It’s always nice to visit with other moms who are in the same season of life I am, they can easily relate to the ups and downs of motherhood.

I twisted my hair and put it in a braid with an XL Flexi Clip from Lilla Rose!

Since I knew we were going to be out in the heat, I made sure and put my hair up for the day! I twisted it and used an XL Flexi Clip to keep the braid up all day.

Another week has come…time to dive into school, nurse the baby, laundry, nurse the baby, making meals, and did I mention nursing the baby? :) I nurse on demand, but she does a pretty good job of taking naps during school time. :)

What I Wore

Skirt – eShakti

Cardigan – Honeysuckle Short Sleeve Cardigan

Tank – Undercover Mama Nursing Tank

Sandals – Found at Kohls last year

Flexi Clip – Lilla Rose

Makeup – L’BRI Pure and Natural
