Right when I was starting to think about spring and long for it, we had a major snowstorm come through where we live! Major for the midwest that is! I haven’t heard an actual number, but I think we got around 10″ of snow, with another huge storm coming tomorrow. The nice thing about the snow coming was that Sean had a snow day at college, so he had a four day weekend! We worked and worked at organizing (I have to admit that my husband is a 100 times better at organizing than I am. It’s the perfectionist side in him!). The schoolroom area is looking so much better!

For my modest monday outfit I actually put this outfit together on Saturday night, instead of scrambling for what I was going to wear on Sunday morning. It made Sunday morning a lot calmer, I wish I would take the time to do this every Saturday night!

The ring I always wear on my right hand is so special, my Mom always wore it and it was given to me when she died. It was my great-great grandmother’s ring! Every time I look at it I think of my mom, I don’t wear it for fashion, just as a remembrance of her.

Pearl necklace

 Pearl necklace. I can’t remember where I purchased this at, probably Kohls. I do remember it didn’t cost very much at all.

Lilla Rose Hair

I purposefully did not wash my hair the night before church so I could fix my hair like this. It braids so much better when I just use my dry shampoo trick! I dutch braided it, knotted it together and then secured it with You Pins from Lilla Rose and Spin Pins instead of bobby pins.

  1. I love the way you did your hair. I have tryed but can never do much with mine I can never get it right and get frustrated and just give up.

    • Charity,

      I’m hoping to do some actual tutorials soon! I agree that it can be frustrating, you don’t see all the failed attempts of hairstyles I’ve tried! 🙂

      • Thanks I figured you would leave a sweet kind response like this. I still try even tho I get frustrated and every once in a while something actually turns out.:-)

    • I empathize, Charity – mine hair is super fine and super thin. Even on days when I am able to get to cooperate, it just looks sad compared to a beautiful full head of hair like that! So I generally just stick with styles that I know work for me. 🙂

  2. Hello Caroline,

    I think pink really looks good on you! And that’s a pretty necklace. I envy you for owning something (the ring) that your great-great grandmother owned and was passed on to you by your mother! 🙂

  3. You look absolutely elegant from head to toe! Your hair is so beautifully done. And how special to wear the ring. It’s nice to see the lace-trimmed tee with this outfit; love the generous length and feminine touch.
