Modest Monday and a Link Up!

Coral dress with denim jacket!

It might be hard to see, but a butterfly landed on the bush and I was looking at it in this picture. :)

We had a busy weekend, we went out of town on Saturday and got home late. Up early for church and had a meal afterwards at church. Then our family was in charge of a casual Sunday evening service at our church, so we came home to get that ready. Thankfully I was able to get a short nap in. I know Monday is going to be slower because we are tired and the house needs cleaned!

I like wearing this maxi dress because I can nurse in public (using a nursing cover) if I wear a cropped layering shell or a halftee with it. Yay for wearing dresses while nursing! I love skirts but I really do enjoy getting to wear dresses once in a while.

XL Flexi Clip from Lilla Rose!

This is a “we are leaving the house right now, throw your hair up in something quick” hairstyle. :) Not the greatest thing I’ve done, but it worked. It’s really hot in Missouri right now, so putting my hair up felt good. I’m using an X-Large flexi clip that was one of the flexi of the month clips.

What I Wore

Maxi Dress – JCPenny (same style as this maxi dress)

Cami – Cropped Layering Shell

Short Sleeve Denim  Jacket – I found this on ThredUP (a site to purchase gently used clothing, new customers to ThredUP can receive a $10 credit).

Flexi Clip – X-Large clip from Lilla Rose.

Feminine Fridays at The Modest Mom

 

Once again the week has just flown by! Between doing school and business work it’s been super busy. I found a new way to put my hair up in a flexi clip, so that was a fun little discovery. 😉

Summer Days at the Park - The Modest Mom

Summer Days At The Park

Skirt ~ Top ~ Sandals ~ Earrings ~ Purse ~ Flexi Clip

I love those earrings and the purse! Ok I also like the top because it’s one we offer. 😉

Iridescent Butterfly - The Modest Mom

Iridescent Butterfly

Skirt ~ Top ~ Sandals ~ Earrings ~ Lip Balm ~ Flexi Clip

I sometimes laugh at myself. I love lip balm! I have more than I need in my purse, just because I love it so much. I’ve found some other natural lip balms I like better than Burt’s Bee, but I’ve used them in the past.

'Tis Elegant - The Modest Mom

‘Tis Elegant

Dress ~ Shrug ~ Necklace ~ Sandals ~ Hair Sticks from Lilla Rose

This dress is beautiful, and it’s greatly discounted on Modcloth right now!! I love the shrug with it, perfect for going to a wedding or some other nice occasion!

Skirt ~ Top ~ Cami ~ Skinny Belt ~ Sandals ~ Earrings ~ Flexi Clip

I saved my favorite outfit for last! I love this look, it’s modern, pretty, yet classic looking. So adorable!

Feminine Friday (Breezy Summer Outfits)

Feminine Fridays at The Modest Mom

I need the inspiration from these Feminine Friday posts myself right now. Actually what I really need is some sleep. Hours and hours of solid, uninterrupted sleep.

What I am thinking? I have a 3 month old baby. That isn’t going to happen for quite awhile!

I couldn’t even put in my contacts the other day because I couldn’t get my eyes open wide enough to get them in. True story. They were burning from being tired. Getting dressed everyday where I look fantastic?

So not happening right now.

I’m trying. I really am. But my biggest priority is to feed my baby, and that takes a lot of work! This time is short, and she is worth all the sleepless nights. And barely put together outfits. :)

Truly Tropical - The Modest Mom

Truly Tropical

Skirt ~ Tank ~ Cardigan ~ Sandals ~ Earrings ~ Purse ~ Flexi Clip

I just found a cardigan like this on ThredUP! I’ll have to try it with my gray maxi skirt that I have.

Evening Sky - The Modest Mom

Evening Sky

Skirt ~ Halftee Tank ~ Cardigan ~ Sandals ~ Bracelet ~ Earrings ~ Flexi Clip

I love wearing blue! It always surprises me since I don’t like decorating with blue. Not one tiny bit! But wearing it is different, I seem to be drawn towards it. This looks like a fun outfit.

Evening Stroll - The Modest Mom

Evening Stroll

Skirt ~ Halftee Tank ~ Peasant Top ~ Sandals ~ Purse ~ Earrings ~ Flexi Clip

Love the accessories in this outfit! Plus the purse is on sale for a really good price at Kohls, which makes it possible to get this look. :)

I’m curious, do you all have multiple purses? I only have 1 or 2, but I know some women have different purses for every outfit!

Have a lovely weekend!
