I’m back! After taking off some weeks from Modest Monday, I feel ready to jump back in. I’ve never taken such a long break, but between the terribly cold, snowy winter months that made it hard to get outside to take pictures, and the lack of sleep thanks to Emily, I just needed to take some time off.

Now that I’m back, I would love to know what you all would like to see on Modest Monday. Do you like all skirts and dresses, or would you like to see some jeans/tunic shirts mixed in? I’m going to try and do a better job of mixing in regular everyday outfits, and church type outfits.

Our clothing budget has been really tight this year, so I’ve made a more minimalist wardrobe work. I’ll be honest, I don’t like it. I’m not the type to want to plan out 5 things in my closet and that’s all I wear. I love variety and change. I love moving furniture around in my house every few months, just for a new look. So I’m ready to hopefully lose some of this baby weight this spring and summer and fit back into some of my clothes, and get some new clothes as I’m able to.

I did get this new white denim jacket from Costco of all places! I like that it’s light weight, so it’s great for spring. It’s also stretchy, so it’s very comfortable. Sean took one look at it and told me good luck with keeping it clean with a baby. 🙂 I won’t wear it every day, just for church or date nights.

I had my hair cut this past week and actually cut inches off. Probably six or so inches…I’m really not sure. I love the new length, it feels lighter, healthier, and easier to keep care of with a baby. Emily loves to grab my hair, so this is a more manageable length.

I curled my hair using my Hot Tools curling iron, and pulled it back in an x-small Flexi Clip.

In other news, Fit2B is a very popular program that ladies use who struggle with Diastasis Recti. If you have had children and can’t seem to gain that flat stomach look back, you struggle with back pain, or even pelvic problems, there is a good chance that you have Diastasis Recti.

Normal workouts like crunches just make this problem so much worse. There are special ways to do workouts to avoid separating your muscles even more, and Fit2B is an excellent resource to help with this.

Right now there is a massively huge 40% off sale going on at the Fit2B website, for just a few days. I’m hoping I can grab the year long membership, as I would love to heal my diastasis! You don’t need a special code, they already have everything marked down. I rarely see type of sale there, so it’s a good time to grab a membership!

  1. Nice to see you back, Caroline. I remember the first time you showcased that dress. I liked it then and it looks really nice with the white denim jacket. April Blessings!

  2. I too vote for skirts and dresses!! You look lovely in them, and there are so few sites showing modest skirt/dress styles. Glad to see you back!!

  3. Caroline, I just had to tell you. My daughter (age 5) saw your picture in this post and said enthusiastically, “She looks almost as pretty as Princess Kate!” I thought that should make your mama heart feel good!

    • That is SO sweet Maria! I love Princess Kate so that was especially sweet (not that I think I look anything like her, but it’s sweet of your daughter to think so!).

  4. I am so pleased that you are back – I have missed your posts.

    I love all your outfits but would love to see a few jeans/tunics outfits as I have recently started to wear jeans myself

  5. I wear both skirts and pants, but from March to November here in Arizona, you will find me in skirts and casual dresses because they are so comfortable! I’d like to see casual, ordinary, daily skirt outfits that look nice as well as styling with jeans. My modesty doesn’t allow me to wear “skinny” jeans, yet I find my looser jeans look like I’m wearing pajama pants. Not a good look, even for a casual look.

  6. I’d love to see more jeans/tunic outfits. I used to wear just skirts and dresses, but now I have switched to wearing tunics (or really short dresses) over jeans, in addition to my normal long skirts. It is hard to find tunics that completely cover me. I’d love to see what you do!

  7. I have a dress almost exactly like yours, and it is super comfortable. My favorite new dress, and it was very reasonable too! I like yours with the jacket. I wear mine plain or with a crocheted sweater, depending on my mood.

    Thanks for continually posting modest, feminine fashions! My favorites!
