Modest Monday and a Link Up

I love my rainbow Denim Skirt for an everyday skirt outfit. Saturday felt like a normal weekend day for us. We are always so busy with  work (online and around the house) and church (my husband is the pastor of our church this year and is teaching our Sunday School class), it can be hard to stop and just get away on Saturday and do things with the children.

We spent the day doing some housework, I worked on cleaning the garage. I wore a casual outfit, but one that I like for working around the house.

You can look happy and put together for a day of cleaning the house! I normally wear my halftee with short sleeves under sleeveless shirts, but it was in the laundry so I wore a cap sleeve shirt instead.

Looking down at my cute polka dot nails makes me smile! Whenever I look down and see purple polka dots on my nails I smile. Yes, it is a little thing but I like it. :)

Playing a game of wiffle ball We went to a nearby park in the afternoon and played a game of wiffle ball as a family, and then went to the little water park at the park afterwards. We all had so much fun! Mosiah was taking a lot of pictures while we were playing, so I thought it would be fun to share some.

I didn’t grow up playing sports, and thankfully my husband is very patient with me. I kept hitting the ball and then running to first base with the bat in my hand. It got to be a joke, but I finally remembered to throw it down and start running the last time I hit!

Don’t you love the stylish sunglasses? ;) They are my husband’s sport sunglasses, I couldn’t find mine when we were playing. I got hot while I was playing and found one flexi clip in my purse. It wasn’t large enough to pull all my hair back, but I did get it out of my face. Love my flexi clips!

I hope you had a great weekend!

The closer we get to my husband’s graduation, the busier the days are getting! He has portfolio reviews, a speech to give with slideshow presentation, Senior night, touring graphic design companies, applying at jobs, graduation, and a graduation party. This past week has been a blur, and the week ahead of us is very busy as well.

I’m putting up just some random pictures for Modest Monday today. We went to a living history event Saturday, and the first two pictures are from that day.

It’s my favorite skirt and I wear it several times a week. The yellow blouse is from ThredUP (New York & Company Brand), and reminded me of spring daffodils. :)

How to stay warm and modest in a skirt

How to stay warm and modest in a skirt | themodestmomblog.com

(Affiliate Links Included)

It truly is possible to stay warm in a skirt in the winter months – and be modest while you do so! This is a topic I receive a lot of emails about, and since it is freezing cold outside right now there is no better time to talk about it!

I’ve worn skirts through the winter since I was a little girl. Remember the stirrup pants that used to be so popular? Yes, I used to wear those, except they were under my skirts! If you get creative, you can stay just as warm in a skirt, if not warmer then if you were wearing jeans!

How to Stay Warm In A skirt:

1. Wear heaver skirts in the wintertime. Now is not the time for the lightweight cotton and chambray skirts. Pack those up during the wintertime or put them in the back of your closet! Heavier fabrics like denim, twill, corduroy, or wool work best. These will keep the heat in better instead of letting the cold air flow right through your skirt!

2. Layer, layer, layer! I know some ladies don’t like to layer, but I’ve always found it necessary during the really cold days. Yesterday the temperature was below zero, and I had on a camisole plus a very warm hoodie (does anyone else think that word sounds silly?!).

For layering underneath a skirt or dress, thankfully there are better options then the stirrup pants now! I wear fleece lined leggings all winter long. Yesterday both pairs of mine were in the wash, so I wore solid black pajama pants under my skirt since we were going to be home all day!

Other options for layering under your skirts are microfiber tights, or cotton tights. I’ve never been as warm with these on, but some ladies prefer them. Try and pick darker color tights or leggings to wear under your darker colored skirts. White leggings with a black skirt will not look right, and possibly will even look like long johns showing underneath.

3. Wear a warm slip under your skirt. I’ve never done this, but have heard of ladies who love to wear a warm slip, such as wool or flannel under their skirts in the wintertime. It would definitely help keep the cold air out!

4. Wear warm socks. You can layer everywhere else, but end up with cold feet and still be miserable all day long! While some people buy UGGS slippers and wear those all winter, they are a little out of my budget! Warm wool socks work great, and you can wear a pair of slippers over them in the house, or boots if you are going out. If you have a membership to Costco, they have a fantastic 3-pack of wool socks right now that are very affordable.

What about going out and playing in the snow? I’ve done all these tips and been warm while I play in the snow, but since I don’t wear skirts out of a biblical conviction (meaning that I feel like I’m required to wear them), I don’t have a problem bundling up in jeans or snow pants to go outside.

snowmobiling in the winter months

 

It’s been quite awhile since I did this, but one year we had so much fun going snowmobiling at my husband’s grandparents farm. I was all bundled up in snow pants and and a coat, and felt like a giant snowman! The only reason I prefer wearing snow pants of some sort while I’m out in the snow is I really don’t like the bottom of my skirts getting soaking wet from the snow.

That is how I’ve always stayed warm in the winter months with a skirt on! It’s not impossible so don’t let the cold stop you from putting a skirt on!
