Modest Monday: Melon Stripes



My husband tried some different angles this week for our photos. He was in the mood for something different I guess. ๐Ÿ™‚


I just bought this skirt on clearance for $3 yesterday! It’s so fun and colorful, I couldn’t wait to wear it!! I wore it with an old thrift store top with small ruffles on the sleeves and neckline, and my favorite Etsy necklace. I find I have so many more things to wear this necklace with lately. When I bought it, I had no outfits it went with. ๐Ÿ™‚


It was another scorcher or I would have worn one of my pretty, short sleeved cardis with it.




The one with the funny smile. ๐Ÿ˜‰


Have a great week!

Modest Monday: Welcome Autumn



Happy Autumn! I was going to post last Sunday’s outfit, then remembered these photos and decided to share them since they’re so autumn-looking, and this is the first week of autumn. Not that you would know it where we live. It’s been in the high 80s/low 90s here. UGH!! See my red, hot cheeks? Oh the joys of year round summer. Thankfully, we DID have two night in the 40s last week, before this latest heat wave. That means the house actually cooled off a tiny bit during the night. Yay!!





Anyway, I’m still enjoying the look of autumn at least. Last year we traveled to Illinois. Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio and saw glorious colors! I miss living with those colors!!




It was really fun pairing this dress differently and using the greenery as a prop. ๐Ÿ™‚





And I ADORE the details on the bodice!!!! I got some compliments on that at church. ๐Ÿ™‚

I love this amber shamrock necklace from my in-laws several years back.

I think yellow (and green) were made for redheads!! ๐Ÿ˜‰



Happy Autumn everyone!!

Modest Monday: Pretty Summer Florals



A couple of weeks ago, I was digging through my closet for something yellow in celebration of my Sweetie’s birthday, as it’s his favorite, especially on redheads. And I had just worn my one yellow dress to church a couple of weeks before. As we were celebrating on Sunday, this presented a dilemma. I ended up finding a few forgotten dresses. I love that! I decided to wear this pretty floral one in a completely different way to help modernize it, but then found out about a couple of the kids I used to take care of as a nanny were getting baptized (YAY!) at their church, so I wore a different dress that would blend in more. I’m an extrovert, but don’t really like to stand out so much in a new situation. ๐Ÿ™‚


And it’s been TOOOOOOO long since my last Modest Monday post!!!

Soooo, a week later, yesterday, I wore the pretty floral! I belted it so it was shorter and easier to walk and move in, Paired it with my lacy cardi and tan sandals and wore the mock up of the earring my girls wore in our wedding, green heart stone danglers. Of course it was another hot day, so a side braid finished it off.



So my red hair shows up better. ๐Ÿ™‚ And, a certain someone doesn’t always notice things like flipped over collars. ๐Ÿ˜‰






Lots of fun compliments! ๐Ÿ™‚


Also, because I love his new shirt so much:




And he’s so handsome! ๐Ÿ™‚





Have a great week! Filled with smiles!!
