Modest Monday (Denim Skirt) and a Link Up!

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

It was a rough week with the pregnancy and I’ve slowed w-a-y down in my energy level. I had to make an emergency trip to my midwife because I was having a lot of early labor symptoms, which I’m not ready for at 7 months!! Saturday I woke up, took my morning pills with a big glass of water and went right to the bathroom and threw it all up and was exhausted for the day. (Sorry if that’s tmi!). So overall, I’m ready for a new week to be here!

Denim Skirt with Black Striped Top and White Cardigan

I had one outfit left from my Six Ways to Style A Denim Skirt post that I didn’t share. I came home from church Sunday and promptly took a long nap, so I’m using that photo for Modest Monday. :) I wore this same top and white cardigan with a black skirt to run errands on Saturday. It’s really comfortable! The weather has actually been warm enough here in Missouri to wear something like this.

This week has also been the start of the third trimester sleepless nights. I usually can sleep for 3-5 hours, and then I’m awake for about 3 hours. Sunday morning I fell back asleep and Sean woke me up with less than 30 minutes to get myself and the 2 youngest girls ready for church!

I was SO thankful that I had put my hair in my favorite overnight curlers. A friend had told me about the Wrap Snap & Go curlers and they work really well for my hair. I quickly took them out of my hair, pulled some hair back in an XS flexi clip and was done with my hair.

Wrap Snap and Go Curlers! So easy to use!

This week starts the DIY bundle! I’m really excited to share with you more details later in the week, but you won’t want to miss signing up for the four part creative e-course that I mentioned in my earlier post on getting the creative side of me back again.

Six Ways to Style A Denim Skirt!

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

I’ve wanted to put together a post showing you six ways to style a denim skirt for a long time. You can make the same skirt have many different looks, based on what tops and accessories you put with it. Don’t be discouraged if you have a small wardrobe, just make sure you have one denim skirt that you love and can wear a lot. The different looks are endless!

Ladies seem to either love or hate a denim skirt. I fall in the love category. They are practical, comfortable, and you can still look super cute and stylish wearing one!

In most of these outfits I have my hair pulled back with an X-Small Kaleidoscope flexi clip from Lilla Rose.

I’m wearing L’BRI Pure and Natural makeup in all these photos. I used three different lipstick colors, Do Kiss, Desert Rose, and Sugar Plum.

Outfit #1

A casual outfit to stay at home, or go out and run errands in.

Rainbow Denim Maternity Skirt – Deborah & Co. (Both the woman’s and the maternity version are back in stock!)

Pink Blush Maternity Top

Boots – Zulily

Necklace – Sugar and Spice from Mialisa

I love this honey color cardigan! It really finishes the whole outfit,.

Outfit #2

I would wear this outfit to Wednesday night church, a date night, any event that needs an outfit slightly more put together, but still not super fancy.

Rainbow Denim Maternity Skirt

Gap Striped Maternity Shirt – I purchased this gently used with credit from ThredUP. You can get $10 in credit if you are a brand new customer to ThredUP and join here!

Cardigan – Deborah & Co. It is not a maternity cardigan but I’ve learned a lot of maternity cardigans look really huge, so I wear some of my regular cardigans as well.

Scarf – ThredUP

Modern and Modest! Accessories add so much to an outfit.

Outfit #3

Sometimes you can express yourself through your outfit! Normally if my husband doesn’t like an outfit I don’t feel confident enough to wear it. My sister gave me this hat for Christmas (she purchased it from Kohls). Sean wasn’t sure if he liked the look or not, but I decided to just be brave and go ahead and wear it. I wore this outfit to Wednesday night church, and also ran errands all day in it. By the end of the day he liked it. :) If you are trying something new, give it longer than the initial look to see if your family (or you!) will like it!

Rainbow Denim Maternity Skirt

Gap Gray Shirt – ThredUP

Purple Tank – ThredUP

Scarf – Thrift Store (Banana Republic Brand)

Hat – Kohls

A casual outfit for running errands or staying home, I like adding the scarf for a finishing touch.

Outfit #4

Another casual outfit to wear at home, or go out and about in. I don’t normally dress denim skirts up really fancy, so I focus on how to look casual, but well put together for everyday looks.

Gap Top – ThredUP

Scarf – ThredUP

Earrings – Pink Button Earrings 

Turn a summery sleeveless shirt into a cute winter outfit by layering with a cardigan or jean jacket!

Outfit #5

You can have a much larger wardrobe if you combine some summer and winter clothes together. The pink top is a lighter weight, sleeveless top but it works perfect wearing it with a jean jacket.

Pink Top – Purchased on Zulily during my last pregnancy

Jean Jacket – Thrift Store

If you have a limited wardrobe, you can dress up a denim skirt with a nicer top and get more use out of your skirt!

Outfit #6

If you have a really limited wardrobe or limited funds, you can dress up your denim skirt by wearing a nicer shirt with it. This is a silky top that I normally wear with a solid black skirt to church. If I was going to wear a denim skirt to Sunday morning church, this is how I would put an outfit together. I would add a necklace to this outfit, we were just running out of time to take these pictures and I didn’t get it on. :)

Blue Top – Motherhood (purchased several years ago from a garage sale)

Black Halftee Tank for layering – I love wearing these when I’m pregnant, breastfeeding, or any other time! Since they are cropped, they work great for all seasons of life!

Black Shoes – Thrift Store

Earrings – Carolina from Mialisia (Some of my favorite earrings come from Mialisia!)

Modest Monday (Black Maxi Dress) and A Link Up!

Black Maxi Dress for Third Trimester

I finally got over my head cold this week! Besides a lingering cough, I felt pretty good Sunday and was able to go to church again. My dress is new, I wasn’t going to order any more maternity clothes since I’m in my third trimester, but I couldn’t pass up this dress from Pink Blush Maternity for $15.

Black Maxi Dress with Pink Shrug

It is really soft and comfortable. I did have to laugh when I first put it on, the totally solid black look with long sleeves didn’t look like me. It was just a bit…dark. But once I added the pink shrug to it I really liked the dress. It’s a little lower cut than what I normally wear, so I wore an Undercover Mama tank underneath it, and remembered to put a hand up top on my dress whenever I bent over. ;)

Third Trimester Glow!

I don’t own large fashion statement necklaces, so a simple pearl necklace and pearl earrings finished the outfit for me.

What I Wore

Dress – Pink Blush Maternity (it looks like this particular dress is no longer available)

Shrug – ThredUP (Gently Used Clothing – get a free $10 credit as a new customer!)

Shoes – Thrift Store

Makeup – L’BRI Pure and Natural (check out the new website they have! It is awesome, and has lot of the ingredients listed beside each product. All the skincare sets are on sale this month!)

Another outfit with my favorite maternity cami! I really like the pink with the striped maxi skirt and boots.

Long maxi skirt with sweater top! I love how comfortable this outfit is. | themodestmomblog.com

I quickly took these pictures while we were at the lake one night, and the outfit was a big hit when I posted it! I guess everyone liked the color of the top. :)

A black dress is always a good essential item to have in your wardrobe!

This outfit is a bit different than what I normally wear. The classic black dress, it’s nice to have one in your closet if possible!

Dress with sweater shrug and boots. I couldn't wear this dress in January without my warm fleece lined leggings from Deborah & Co! (http://www.deborahandco.com/fleece-lined-leggings/ )

My country girl look. ;)
