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. :)

Don’t forget about our Facebook Party tonight at Deborah & Co. starting at 8 PM central. You won’t want to miss the fellowship and the prizes!!

Deborah and Co. is hosting a Facebook Party Monday Night, April 20th at 8 PM Central!

Modest Monday and a Link Up!

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.

Feminine Fridays at The Modest Mom

 

I love the two outfits listed below. They are good inspiration for date nights, church, or other special occasions. I’d love to wear these for a night out with my husband!

What a beautiful spring and summer outfit! I know a lot of moms have told me they are not brave enough to wear white. I love to wear white, I just always keep a bottle of Shout at home to put on a dirty spot that happens when a child sits on my lap. :) And I don’t wear white skirts at home for everyday, they are for mostly for church.

A guest post by Ruth from Skirted Blues.

Spring seems to be very slow in coming this year in our neck of the woods. I am little tired of my winter wardrobe, but it is still too cool for much of my spring stuff. This is when I especially love layers! I am a big fan of the bright spring colors, so I don’t mind piling them on in layers. :) This is the outfit I wore on the first day of spring while attending a homeschool convention. I had so many people come up to me and thank me for dressing like spring! I guess they all agreed that it had been a long, cold winter!

Lovely Spring Outfit!

Maternity Khaki Skirt from Skirted Blues

I love the Maurice’s camisoles for layering. I am particular to that brand because of the fact that you can tighten the straps (thus raising the neckline) as much as you want to. They are pretty and come in a wide assortment of bright colors that change with the season. I do have a tendency toward certain colors in my wardrobe (for instance, I almost never wear red, partly because it just doesn’t look good on me), so this is helpful in being able to mix and match outfits to make them feel different without having to own a lot of clothes or accessories.

Spring pastel outfit!

This skirt I can wear with almost all of my spring tops. The boots (originally from my brother’s wedding) work for most of our seasons, not to mention that they match almost anything. I am a little like my grandmother when it comes to purses, though. She had a purse for every season and occasion. This is my spring/summer purse. I have a camouflage one for fall and winter.
