Modest Monday and a Link Up!

Maxi Skirt with ScarfI haven’t been wearing scarfs lately but this one is lightweight, so I can handle it in the summer months. I like how it adds an extra touch of color. And yes, I totally did go to Pinterest to remember how to knot my scarf this morning. :) I don’t wear scarfs all the time, so I always seem to forget.

Modest Monday Outfit My hair is so heavy, it normally is just flat as can be. I teased the top part of my hair after blow drying it, so there would be at least a little bit of volume! I pulled back just a little bit, so I used a mini flexi clip to hold it.

Wearing Skirts in the Summer – Seasonal Blog Hop

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

I missed out on the seasonal blog hop for Spring, but I’m delighted to join a group of bloggers for the Summer blog hop! It is hard finding bloggers who have a niche in modest dress, so you will definitely want to look around at all the different posts and see the cute outfits that have been put together! The focus on this Blog Hop is wearing skirts in the summer months.

I don’t consider my outfits to be super stylish. I try to look on the more modern side, but my first focus is if the outfit is modest. Being a mom of five children I have to keep things practical as well. Skirts are the easiest for me to wear, and I layer with cami’s a lot.

I love this easy outfit of a polka dot skirt and blue top! I like outfits that are easy to put together. I don’t spend a lot of time in the morning on doing fancy hairstyles, it’s either down, or pulled back in a flexi clip. A few times a month I’ll take a couple of extra minutes and braid it before I start my day.

It's easy to braid your hair with a flexi clip! I braided my hair in two braids here, and twisted them together with Mega Tree of Life flexi clip.

 If I’m going out I normally put on some foundation, blush, eye shadow and sometimes mascara (I like the L’BRI makeup), but around the house I normally don’t wear makeup. I’m not the type of person that can’t ever be seen without makeup on, and I don’t have a problem going out without it on either.

Using a simple bobby pin is an easy way to add a cute extra touch to your outfit! Using a bobby pin to pull your hair back can add a simple, easy cute look to your outfit.

I keep my makeup simple! I keep my makeup simple. I don’t want people to look at me, and the first thought they have is “wow, that girl is wearing a lot of makeup!” I use makeup as a tool, not to totally change how I look.

A striped maxi skirt is a modern modest look!A striped maxi skirt is very comfortable to wear and it is a modern modest look. I’m so grateful that maxi skirts and dresses are still in style, because you can actually find a long skirt or dress in stores still!

A tiered skirt and blue top is an easy outfit to put together If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been wearing this blue top a lot this summer! I sold it last year at Deborah & Co. and it sold out pretty fast!

I wear this rainbow denim skirt several times a week. I wear this denim skirt about 3 times a week. Sometimes more. I have 2 of them hanging up in my closet! This skirt is my favorite denim skirt. It is versatile, comfortable, it goes with everything, and it’s easy to move around in it and be an active mom.

I wear a lot of clothes that I sell at Deborah & Co. but I also find clothes at Zulily and ThredUP online. Very occasionally I will find something at Target, Kohls, or Marshalls that I buy, but a lot of my tops come from either ThredUP or the thrift store. Lately almost everything has come from ThredUP since I’ve been blessed with a lot of credit to the store. I love getting to share special links like this one, where new customers get $20 in free credit to ThredUP and can get something free!

4th Of July Modest Monday and a Link Up!

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

It was such a busy week, it’s hard to believe that Modest Monday is here again! But what a fun week. The 4th of July is always a huge event for our family, as we celebrated our 9th annual 4th of July celebration at my Mother-in-Laws farm. My husband and brother-in-law started the event, and it has grown larger each year! I wish I could share with you the picture of the large room full of people, but I try to respect people’s privacy in case they don’t want pictures shared online. :)

My children are going to Vacation Church School this week, and to say they are excited is an understatement! We start our new school year the week after Church School is over, so I’m working on getting a lot of freezer meals in the freezer to help me make that transition into a new school year. I’ll be taking pictures and sharing with you my finished meals and recipes when I’m done!

Ruffle Skirt from Deborah and Co. in the Blue Polka Dot Fabric I wanted a red, white and blue combo for the 4th of July, so wearing the ruffle skirt from Deborah & Co. in the blue polka dot fabric worked out great with a red shirt! We have 16 different fabrics you can choose from for our custom skirts, so if you don’t like this fabric there is probably a different one that suits your style!

The Liberty Bow Flexi Clip from Lilla Rose was a huge hit for the 4th of July! I knew I would want my hair up and out of my way for the 4th of July, so I french braided it on the sides, then did one long braid and put it up using the X-Large size Liberty bow flexi clip. Love how easy it was to do, and that it stayed up all day until super late!

I braided my hair on the sides, did one long braid and then used a flexi clip to hold it all up!

My daughter wore a Hello kitty 4th of July shirt with a jean skirt and flexi clip! My oldest daughter wore a Hello Kitty 4th of July shirt with a long jean skirt. She was so excited to finally get a Hello Kitty shirt, she has asked for them before but this was the first one I found that I liked. :) Thanks to ThredUP we got it with credit and on time for the holiday!

Braided hair with an x-small flexi clipI braided her hair and then twisted the two long braids together using an x-small flexi clip. It held all day long, and she played hard!

What I Wore

Skirt – Ruffle skirt with the blue polka dot fabric option.

Top – Thrift Store

Cami – White Halftee Tank

Red Shoes – Zulily

Flexi Clip – Lilla Rose

Makeup – L’BRI pure and natural

Modest Monday and a Link Up!

Weekly Modesty Monday outfit!

It was a blessing to spend the sabbath day at church, being encouraged as a christian, and as a mother. Visiting with friends about how to help my daughter stop sucking her thumb, grammar curriculum, intervals to do for exercise that won’t make me feel like I’m going to faint, my husband’s hunt for a job, and more along those lines. It’s always nice to be able to chat with moms of all different ages and seasons of life.

Brown skirt and plaid shirt I wore this brown skirt and plaid blouse, and showed up at church with my sister wearing brown in her outfit, and we had the exact same sandals on. Sister love. :)

Flexi Cip for an easy undo for summer!  I was once again grateful for flexi clips on busy Sunday mornings!

A special necklace my husband bought meMy necklace is special to me. Back when we had just had our second child (and not making much money!), my husband sold an old lawnmower and came home with this necklace. I couldn’t believe he did that for me. Every time I see it I’m reminded of the great love my husband has for me, and the sacrifices he has made for our family over the years!
