Modest Monday and a Link Up

It’s been a good week. Super busy, but that seems to be life. :)
Purple Lace Maxi Skirt

The private Facebook group that I set up for sharing modest outfits has been really encouraging! Sometimes Facebook groups can be difficult to admin if people don’t get along, or don’t want to follow the rules. This group has been such a joy, and I’ve been inspired by some of the outfits posted!

Black Shirt with a Purple Lace Maxi Skirt

I had a necklace on with this outfit, but I had to take it off at church because Miss Sophia would not stop trying to grab it and chew on it! Since it was a locket that could be opened with charms inside, I didn’t want to risk her choking on something.

Braid with a Flexi Clip

 

 

Our air has not been working for the past few days so I’ve been extra hot. I wore my hair down to church in the mini flexi clip but when we got home I needed it up! I had matching clips so I thought it looked ok. :)

I’ve had a lot of good discussions with my husband this week. Between reading an amazing new homeschool book, launching the Character Badges Kickstarter Campaign and talking about our future as a self employed family and how that will look, and then reading about the latest with Josh Duggar, we have had a lot to talk through.

Friday night I sat and read several pages of Teaching From Rest to Sean and was crying by the time I was done. So many good things in a small book that describes how I want my homeschool days to go. And it reaches far beyond just what a homeschool schedule should look like, the heart of the matter is reaching my children, forming a relationship with them that will last when the rough years might hit.

Time is short and precious. Life is unpredictable, but one thing stands firm. God is unshakable, unchangeable, and will forever remain the same. When our world feels turbulent, we can rest in the peace that only comes from the Lord. Sure, I get panicky at times thinking of raising my children in this crazy world we live in. But I know that the Lord’s word is true, and He will prevail over all evil!

Keep pressing on!

And with that…here is the link up!

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

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

Iridescent Butterfly - The Modest Mom

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!

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