Feminine Fridays at The Modest Mom

Last week I was in the middle of a garage sale and I just couldn’t stay up any later to do Feminine Friday. Sophia is about ready to turn 3 months (where has the time gone!) and life is so busy. I know we are not alone in being busy though, almost every family we talk to sounds overwhelmed with the business.

Fireworks - The Modest Mom

Fireworks

Dress (Available at Deborah & Co.)~ Shrug ~ Sandals ~ Necklace ~ Purse ~ Flexi Clip

I actually still have no idea what I’m going to wear for the 4th of July. It’s always a really big event that we are in charge of (along with some other family members), all of our church comes to my mother in law’s house for a day of skits, a historical speech, music, and of course lots of food and fun!

If I wasn’t nursing I would wear the outfit above!

Classic Green - The Modest Mom

Classic Green

Skirt ~ White Top ~ Modest Layering Tank ~ Sandals ~ Necklace ~ Flexi Clip

I really like the style of the lace top in this outfit. It’s a popular style right now, but I have yet to try one on. Has anyone had success with layering a tank under one so your bra straps don’t show through?

Summer Blues - The Modest Mom

Summer Blues

Skirt ~ Layering Tee (Deborah & Co.) ~ Cardigan (Deborah & Co.) ~ Earrings ~ Sandals ~ Flexi Clip

I wore this cardigan Sunday and loved it! It is really soft and comfortable, and I wasn’t even hot in the midwest heat!  Those earrings look adorable, I recently found a pair of Navy blue earrings from JCPenny that are a new favorite for me.

This Friday and Saturday only you can save $5 off any $30 order! Use the code: 5OFF30 to save at Deborah & Co.

I hope your week has gone well! I’ve been busy doing lots of behind the scene business work this week while we are on summer break, plus I’m trying to exercise at the track more. I shared on Instagram that I’m trying to start the couch to 5K program. My dream is to run a 5K with my husband, time will tell if I’m able. :) I have to watch how hard I push myself with exercising because I can go into an adrenal slump if I’m not careful.

Modest Maxi Skirt with a feminine gray top

I had been wanting a striped coral or pink skirt for awhile, when I realized I had this in my Deborah & Co. inventory! I grabbed it, and now there is only one size small left in stock and then I’ll be totally sold out of this skirt! It’s nice having a basement full of inventory. One Sunday morning I really needed a new modest layering cami to match my outfit and I ran downstairs and grabbed one. A little store at home! :)

I recently tried a different skincare line that a company sent me in the mail to try. My face broke out and I’ve not recovered. I’m thankful for L’BRI and how gentle yet cleansing it is. It’s frustrating to be in your 30’s and still break out! I need to grab some more cleanser from L’BRI, though today only the deep pore cleanser, shampoo and conditioner is on sale and I’m almost out!

Using a small scarf to tie in your hair is a fun look!

Shirt – Elle (found on ThredUP, I have a search saved there for the Elle brand as I really like their tops)

Cami – Modesty 4 Me

A good outfit for this postpartum mom! #ModestMonday

I’m back!! I might have that tired postpartum mom look for awhile, but we quickly snapped a few pictures before I went to church for the first time since Sophia was born!

As a mom of a three week old, skirts with elastic are my clothing of choice. I’ve been wearing lots of Undercover Mama nursing tanks and shirts that are comfortable and easy to nurse in.

Hues of Blue Flexi Clip

I wanted to get a shower in Saturday night before church, but that so did not happen! So I just pulled my hair back in a Lilla Rose headband, and put the matching Hues of Blue flexi clip in my hair. Not the most flattering hairstyles (my hair just looks flat) but I think a mom of a 3 week old is allowed to look slightly frazzled. :)

The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle is here for one week only!! Deborah & Co. is a bonus partner, and you will receive a free scarf when you purchase this bundle! As a bonus offer you will also receive a coupon to Cowgirl Dirt when you purchase the bundle through my link!

Hey y’all! I’m Olivia Howard from Fresh Modesty. I am happy to be guest posting today while Caroline snuggles with her new baby! I live in beautiful middle Tennessee where I was loving spring, until our 70* days turned back to winter-like 40* weather. So today I thought I’d share 5 tips for dressing in spring fashions even when it’s still chilly outside.

Tip #1: Linen skirts are a perfect transitional piece. They adjust for hot or cold temperatures and are neither too heavy for spring nor too flimsy for early April.
Tip #2: Light colors! The white linen and pink printed skirt really makes this outfit season-appropriate. I chose to pair it with brown instead of black simply to keep it fresher.
Tip #3: While still trying to layer for warmth, avoid heavy accessories like scarves, knit beanies, and anything with fuzz or fur. You can also probably put away your fleece-lined leggings and pull out the cotton capris-length ones from the bottom of the drawer.

 Tip #4: Although chunky knits are out, light cashmere or tight-knit cardigans are definitely in! This cardigan is very warm, although it’s in a springtime color, which allows me to go without a coat.

Tip #5: Let your hair down! It’s been cooped up in buns and ponytails all winter long because, let’s face it, we all hate the static it creates with our sweaters. An easy, casual hairstyle will add an air of springtime joy to your ensemble.

Cardigan: Ann Taylor Loft, ThredUP

Thank you so much for reading! If you’d like to join in more springtime fun, there is a series of posts on how I’m cultivating my closet for the season coming to Fresh Modesty this week. I post practical modest wardrobe encouragement regularly there in the hopes of encouraging girls to be “Cute, but covered! Stylish, but sensible! Contemporary, but classic! Feminine, but fresh!
 
Have a wonderful day!
