Accessories for the Modern Man

I've had my husband guest post a few times, and everyone loved it, so I decided to let him take over my blog for the day again! If you shop for your husband, or your husband has an instagram, my husband posts his outfits on his instagram @dapperpreacher. Check it out and follow him! :)

----------------------------------------------------------

Hello! I was pretty excited when my wife told me I was going to get to model a watch for her blog again! JORD wood watches are becoming more popular on Instagram, and I've seen a lot of style bloggers I follow wearing them. I picked out the 94A series in Dark Sandalwood. I like the manliness of a big face on a watch, so this one was the perfect size. As you can see in the next two pictures, it can be both casual and dressy.

Right now, JORD is running a contest exclusively for Modern Modesty readers, and everyone is a winner of at least a $20 coupon, but the grand prize winner will receive a $75 coupon!! Be sure to enter here!

I just wanted to share a few of my shirt/tie/pocket square combos. Just like pattern mixing is in style for women, it is also for men. Here's some of my looks. Hopefully, it will inspire some of you and/or your husbands.

Summertime Fun & Modest Swimwear

I haven't done a blog post in SO long!! I really need to get back on a "normal" blogging schedule again, but it seems impossible with my very unschedule-able life! (I know that's not a word) ;)! Here's a quick update on Luke, he is in his 3rd of 5 phases of "frontline" chemo. We are in a phase called Interim Maintenance, which consists of going to the hospital to be admitted every 2 weeks for a 4 day stay to get a very high dose of methotrexate. Then, he also takes oral chemo at home during this phase as well. He did REALLY well with his first dose of the 4 he will have to get. It's known to cause VERY bad mouth sores that can go all the way down the esophagus to the booty, but praise the Lord, he didn't get any sores! We have 3 more of those high doses, then we move into what is called Delayed Intensification, which is supposedly the hardest phase and when most kiddos lose their hair (if they haven't already!) I'm not going to lie, I'm really trying to NOT think about the next phase, but it's so hard not to worry. I try to live in the present of each day, and thank God for the health and strength Luke has daily. Please pray for us, especially in the next couple of months.

Today was a fun day, filled with lots of sunshine and smiles! Luke loves going outside and playing with his water table!

I just got my new HydroChic in the mail, so I had to test it out and break it in! ;) I have another HydroChic that I got last year, and I have worn it almost every time we've gone swimming! LOVE the quality and fit of the skirts.

This time I got the Aqua Terra Ruffle Swim Skirt, which has a skirt length of about 18.5”, and the shorts underneath have an inseam of 6.5”. I also got the Tidal Tank Sporty Sleeveless Swim n' Gym Top in a size Medium. Both pieces are chlorine resistant, quick drying, and have an UPF 50+ sun protection.

I LOVE our new pool float! Haha!

Last week, we celebrated our little man's 2nd birthday! We had a small little party at our house and had so much fun!

I seriously can't believe he's TWO already! Many of you have been following me way before he was even thought of, so I'm sure you can relate! Look how handsome he is!

Here are some of my outfits I've worn to church the past couple of Sundays!

I LOVE this shirt from Shop Hello Grace. It just rings true for our current family situation. "Let's be brave together."

Thank you for your prayers! Love you all & God bless! ♥

Modest Swimwear

One of the most popular questions I get is "What do you wear swimming?" So, anytime I get an opportunity to do a review for a modest swimwear company, I love to share it with you all! Today's suit is my new fav! HydroChic has been my go-to since I got mine last summer! (a new review is in the works for them again too) But, I REALLY like this new suit I got from UnderCover Water Wear.

I chose the Striped Rashguard Swim Top with Coral Sleeves. I'm so glad I did! It is perfect for my Snow White self...lol! It's the perfect coverage and fit!

For the bottom, I chose the Black Mini Skirt with Shorts Attached. For you tall girls, this might be too short on you. It's about 18" long, but for me, it's perfect. I wanted a swim skirt that hit right over my knee, and this was exactly what I was looking for!

They do also have longer versions, but I already have more of a midi length black skirt with leggings attached, so I wanted something a tad shorter. This is super easy to swim in and you can feel totally comfortable around everyone in it!

So if you are looking to invest in a quality modest swim suit, I think this is a great option! I will be doing more modest swimwear posts this summer!

Just a little update on Luke: Luke is doing great! We had a SUPER big scare on Thursday when he went into anaphylactic shock after receiving his preventive antibiotic for pneumonia. It was seriously the scariest thing I have EVER seen in my life. The second she flushed his IV, he screamed bloody murder, than turned completely pale and limp. His blood pressure crashed and he was out. Thank God for quick thinking nurses and doctors that gave him an epi and sent us to the ER to recover! We stayed for 2 days just to make sure it was an allergic reaction and not sepsis. Thank God, he is doing great! Tomorrow, Luke is supposed to start a new phase of chemo where we have to stay inpatient for 3 days, but I don't think he will make counts. (I won't be sad if we get a week off!) Please be in prayer for my husband and our family as we lost my father in law suddenly on Saturday. If you would like to show love to my mother in law you can give here. Please continue to shower our family in prayer for strength during these crazy times in our lives.

Don't forget Father's Day is coming up soon! I have another gift idea for you! I got Stephen a KLIX Leather Phone Wallet! I think it's a great option for guys, so they can just carry their cards, cash, and phone all in the same wallet! I used my phone to model it for you all! ;)
