Modest Monday and a Link Up!

I was so excited to find this gingham dress that I had been waiting to wear it for the blog until we could go somewhere super cute and take some really nice photos. This house project is taking all of our time and attention though, and I really wanted to wear it to church!

Since I waited awhile to share, I can’t find it on the website now. I saw this dress first on Instagram, and then discovered it was for sale on the Target website only. The Plus size dress is still available, and I highly recommend it!

I used a short sleeve Halftee  under this dress, which was perfect!

4th of July Hairstyles (With The Link Up!)

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

This week I’ve been at our new house until 10:00 at night most nights, tearing down wallpaper. I finally crashed Friday night and came home early to rest. We went back to the house Saturday and we were out late again, but Sunday off to rest. I’m dragging big time, but I’m almost done! We hired someone to come do all the mudding and sanding on the walls to make them look like new, so that will happen Wednesday through Friday. I’m looking forward to that, as I’ll be at our current house packing, and taking a nap at some point. ūüôā This is hard work, but I really think it’s all going to be worth it!

I’m looking forward to moving in at the end of July! We are praying that we get it all done in time, as we have to be out of our rental house for sure at the end of July.

Instead of the usual pictures I’m going to share some hairstyle ideas that you could do for the 4th of July!¬†¬†

Here are some easy updos for the 4th, using the patriotic Lilla Rose Flexi Clips!

I love this hairstyle for little girls! If you feel overwhelmed in how to do it, just look at the picture closely. It’s simply 3 different sections that they part in half and braid. I’m going to try it this year!

If you don’t have a flexi clip, use a red, white, or blue scarf as a fun accessory in your hair!

The latest patriotic clip that Lilla Rose released. They did a fun variation of a braid!

I hope everyone has a lovely 4th of July! I’m looking forward to the day off of wallpaper, before we jump into painting the whole main level!

I was ever so glad to see Sunday come! It’s been a super busy week of scraping wallpaper off of our new house and I’m using muscles that never get used otherwise, so I’m pretty sore!

This will be a quick Modest Monday post as it’s already a super late evening, and I have a lot going on this week! I’m really hoping to have the wallpaper all finished by the end of this week. Fingers crossed!

What I Wore

Skirt – Honey & Lace

Shirt – Worthington Brand Petite length shirt

(I’m not petite, but my sister talked me into trying some petite length shirts. She said they don’t look as sloppy and I really like it!)

Sandals – I found them on Zulily a few years ago

Necklace – Tassel necklace from JCPenny (similar found here)

Bobby Pin – Currant Bobby Pin from Lilla Rose (These seriously hold all day long!)

We went away for the weekend to my Dad’s house, so we could spend Father’s Day there with him and my Step-Mom.

What.A.Weekend.

Little miss Sophia who is 2 decided to keep things interesting. My Dad and step-mom built a really nice house a few years ago, so everything is in nice condition. She had on a swim diaper and sat down on the cream colored stairs and slid all the way down, leaving a trail of poop behind on the carpet. I wanted to disappear when I saw that!

We no sooner got that all cleaned up, then I realized she had disappeared again and was sitting on a bed eating chocolate caramels, and of course getting chocolate all over the white bedspread. So once again, I go downstairs and tell my step-mom about this and we get the comforter going in the wash.

Then I had a huge battle with her over eating chocolate cake in her high chair. I finally won, but oh not fun!

Did I mention that we forgot her pack n play? Oh yes, we really did. She sleeps good, but she is very particular about sleeping in her pack n play since she is used to it. She slept with me the last night, and Sean slept downstairs in the basement. LOL She rolled off the bed in the middle of the night and woke up screaming, which woke me up in a panic.

Whew. It was a weekend I won’t forget. Otherwise we had a great time, we visited Daniel Boone’s home which was a lot of fun for my 11 year old son who adores Daniel Boone and Davy Crocket!

I just got this striped maxi skirt from the Swap website. It’s a Gap brand skirt, and I love how comfortable it is! The only striped skirt that Gap has on their website right now is this wrap Midi skirt¬†and I’m not sure how that would be. You could always check in the Swap website though, they sell gently used clothing and I’ve been super happy with the clothes I’ve gotten! Plus you get 20% off if you are a new customer using this link!

I’ll tell you a tip. I took a course on clothing and fashion and they said if you wanted your stomach to look smaller, don’t wear a white shirt. I really do think it’s true. A solid blue shirt would look more flattering with this. Does any other mom get tired of trying to disguise a tummy who struggles with Diastasis Recti, and not wanting to look pregnant? *Sigh* The struggle is real you all! So I put pictures up to be honest, and to let you know that you are not alone!

Moving on…here are my favorite lace up sandals. I can’t find a link for something just like these. Here are some similar¬†sandals, but they are not exact.¬†¬†Sean found these sandals for me at Marshalls in the Spring!

Finally, an XS Flexi Clip to hold my hair back.

What I Wore

Skirt – Gap Brand found on Swap website

Shirt – Liz Clairborne Shirt (lots more colors available, highly recommend it!)

Sandals – Similar ones

Flexi Clip – Lilla Rose
