Tips for Stay at Home Moms

I am so excited to share this post with you! Jordin is a stay at home Mommy who is very wise in the area of looking cute but being very stay at home friendly! I hope you enjoy this post and use some of her tips!!


________________________________________________________________

Hello ladies! First of all, I would like to thank Lauren for giving me the opportunity to post on her blog! Lauren has been an inspiration to many of us, including myself and I appreciate her endeavor in this ministry. As Christian ladies we should aspire to build each other up, and Lauren does a good job of encouraging us all to look our best! Second of all, I want to say that while these tips can be helpful to many ladies, I want to mainly direct this post to Stay At Home Mommies (SAHM)! It can get discouraging sometimes when you don’t have the time or energy or confidence to put into fashion, so I wanted to share what I’ve learned along the way and what the Lord has taught me. I will try to keep it “short and sweet.” ☺



Get Ready First Thing

I’ve found that the longer I put something off, the less likely it is to happen. There have been days I had good intentions, but never saw them through because one thing after another happened, and the day went by before I realized it! Make it a goal to get dressed first thing each morning. I try to remind myself that my daughter is watching me, and I need to set an example for her by trying to be presentable each day!


Basic and Comfy Can Still Be Cute

I don’t know about you guys, but sometimes between Pinterest, Instagram, and yes, Modern Modesty (heehee) I tend to feel a bit intimidated sometimes! So many cute outfits that I could never pull off! But then I remind myself that I don’t have to wear bootie wedges and pencil skirts just to look cute. Basic and comfy can still be cute and put together! You don’t have to dress up “fancy” every day to still be cute.


Remember Your Hubby

As SAHM, there are days we never see anyone but our husbands and kids. I know it can be easy to skip doing hair or makeup those days. And occasionally we all deserve to have a lazy day! But I personally try not to make it a habit to “forget” about my hubby. Our husbands are exposed to other women every day, usually nicely dressed, fixed up women (depending on his job). I like to give him something nice to come home to. I also try to remember what my husband does or doesn’t like when it comes to hairstyles, fashion, and to ask his opinion when I wear new things!


Have a 5-minute Face

I go natural most days; there is nothing wrong with not wearing makeup! But for those days you want to wear makeup, or those who like to wear makeup every day, it’s very helpful to have a “quick look” especially after you become a mom! Here a few tips, I will fire them out really quickly! Don’t skip blush, it helps you look more awake. Curl your lashes; it also gives you an “awake” look. Use your finger to apply eye shadows, it’s faster. Go for neutral shadows so you don’t have to be perfect with the application. Don’t skip filling in your brows, it will help pull your face together! Skip lining the lower lash line, it can enhance dark “mom” circles and make you look older. Use highlighter on your brow bone and cheekbones to give a youthful glow! And last but not least, find products that can multitask to save time. For example a primer and eye shadow in one (Mary Kay has some good ones) or a tinted moisturizer.


Have a Couple of “Go-to” Outfits

There are some days that are very rushed as a mom. You may have to leave the house with 5 minutes notice, or maybe your outfit gets ruined right as you’re walking out the door. Or maybe you are just having a blah day and you don’t have the energy to pick out a cute outfit one morning. It helps to have a couple of “go-to, never fail” outfits for these occasions. Things you know work together and look polished and pulled together. When you have time, go through your closet and put a few of these outfits together. I suggest a couple of casual outfits and one church outfit. Always have these in the back of your “mental closet” for occasions such as these!


Mommy “Beauty-Hacks”

Maybe I’m lazy, but I’m all about whatever will save me time, effort, money, and too much energy! Here are few hacks that have helped me. It’s not always easy finding time to take a shower as a mom, so my secret is dry shampoo! On days your hair needs help, just spray some of this in and your hair looks clean! It won’t feel clean but it looks clean, so fake it till you make it! When you DO have time to get a shower (ha-ha) here’s a tip: to keep your skin beautiful, apply a mask in the shower! I put mine on right away, then let it sit while I shampoo and lather up. It won’t dry like it would if you weren’t in the shower but it still does the job, and the steam helps penetrate your pores. Another hack that I’ve found to be helpful is to fix your hair BEFORE you go to bed. You can blow out, curl, or flat iron, however you choose to do your hair. That way, you only have to do touch ups in the morning! Huge time saver! One more: I also lay out my outfits the night before, especially if we have somewhere to be in the morning. Not just mine, but also my child’s!



Rethink Your Wardrobe

Becoming a mother has really helped me to rethink my wardrobe. Before, I would just buy something if it was cute, not really caring about the price or the comfort and durability of the garment. As moms, we need to first of all aim for comfort. Secondly, how “baby-proof” is it? And third, will it last longer than 10 washings? And of course it needs to be cute! I try to remember to choose “forgiving” garments when I’m shopping. For example, stretchy waistbands on skirts are helpful because it can take up to 6 months or longer to lose baby weight. Plus the stretchier the waistband, the easier it is to move, bend over, chase kids, etc.! You also want to think “Forgiving” in terms of materials and colors (how easy will you be able to get something clean if it gets food/snot/dirt all over it or how well can the fabric hide stains if something happens in public?) Here are a few of my top essentials for mommy wardrobes. Denim skirts, maxi skirts and dresses, blazers made from stretchy and comfy material, basic fitted tee shirts, cardigans, and high tank tops.


Go Through Your Closet

It’s hard to choose an outfit if your closet is jam-packed, unorganized, and outdated! Take some time to go through your closet. Reevaluate, reorganize, and get rid of anything that isn’t conducive to your lifestyle or anything that is outdated or worn out. Take inventory of items you need or would like to have. Then slowly start to build a modern, modest, mommy-friendly wardrobe!



Make Time for Yourself

So what does this tip have to do with fashion for SAHM you may ask? If you are completely worn out and emotionally drained, never getting time to recharge, you are not going to have energy or maybe even the desire to put into dressing stylishly. Try to make some time each week to have at least an hour to yourself. Do something to relax or just get a break and it will make a difference!


Prepare Your Heart


1 Samuel 16:7 (KJV)

“But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.”

You could spend hours choosing an outfit, but it will not make a whit of difference in the Lord’s eyes if your heart attitude isn’t right. It’s important to make an effort in our appearance as Christians. We are the only light the lost world sees! But God sees our heart, and that’s where we should strive to please him.

Being a mom is one of the toughest jobs on the planet. It’s also one of the most rewarding, and one of the most important. You are shaping and molding lives and personalities! What are your kids learning from you every day? Preparing your heart everyday is going to make a difference in how the day goes, attitudes, and your emotional well being.


Ecclesiastes 9:10 says “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest”.

Now what does that have to do with fashion and beauty you ask? In my personal experience, when I have taken time to do my devotions, get dressed, brush my hair, and put even a smidge of effort into my appearance, the day goes better and I feel better about myself. It’s very small yes, but it goes a long way.

Moms, God has given us a tremendous job! Let’s make sure we do it heartily as unto the Lord!
Even though you may have days of feeling like you’re not making a difference, remember the little eyes watching you, and know that to THEM you are ALL the difference. Continue to do the very best you can at the job God has given you.

I’ve put together a couple of pictures of some outfit ideas for SAHM. They are very basic but still cute and functional and of course comfortable. One final tip I’d like to share with you is how I plan my outfits based on my day. The picture on the left is what I put on in the morning and wear throughout the day in my house. The picture on the right is what I add to the outfit if we have to leave the house in order to help my outfit look more pulled together and interesting.

I hope these tips have been helpful! I know the post was long, but I just shared what was on my heart. Thanks for reading ladies! Have a wonderful day!

**** Please ladies, don’t think I am bashing moms who wear yoga pants and tee shirts all day. If that’s your choice that’s fine! (I’ve done it myself). This post was mainly geared for SAHM who want to get out of that habit and have been asking for advice in this department.

In All Modesty

If you follow my blog, you will know this outfit is absolutely outside of my comfort zone! But, I LOVE the look of full, pleated skirts, so when Shirley from In All Modesty asked me to review her Black Taffeta Skirt, I just had to try it out!

Even though it's not "me," I really like it! I will most definitely look for some more full skirts when I'm out shopping now! This skirt was custom made exactly for my measurements, so it fit like a gem!

Also, In All Modesty is giving ALL of Modern Modesty followers FREE international shipping of any items you buy! All you have to do is use the coupon code MODERNMODESTY for that discount! You can check their website or etsy shop! :)

Please forgive me, for some reasons my pictures turned out horrible! I don't know what happened with the lighting and my top! It looks like I'm a white, topless ghost! LOL!

 photo inallmodesty1.jpg

I felt very chic when I added my suede booties and my peter pan collar top!

 photo inallmodesty3.jpg

Since the lighting was so bad, here's a selfie that shows a little more detail!

If I can step outside my comfort zone, so can you! :) I hope this inspires you to try a different style out, you never know, you might like it!

Kicking it in Keds

I don't know if you've seen the new Kate Spade line of Keds...but I am pretty much in love with all of them! Well, my super talented friend Elizabeth, (who has done a couple guest posts for me) posted an outfit with some designer-inspired Keds that she hand-painted...and I was in LOVE. I immediately asked her to make me some Kate Spade look-a-likes! She sent them to me and I told her she HAS to sell these on her Etsy shop! They are the cutest shoes ever! We're both going to show you some of her beautiful hand-painted Keds that we both styled! :) Hope you love them as much as I do and buy a pair too!

Here is some of the adorable ones she can paint!

 photo keds2.jpg

Seriously aren't these gorgeous!!??? The best part is they are only $33 here!

 photo keds1.jpg

She also painted some adorable Lilly Pulitzer inspired patriotic ones and only charges $29 for these!

 photo keds3.jpg

Here's the Kate Spade inspired Keds she made for me! They are 1/3 the price of the "real" Kate Spade ones! The real ones are $75 and I think mine are cuter ;)

I love the navy polka dots, they are to die for! :)

Excuses, Excuses

 photo excuse.jpg

One of my favorite sayings is, "Excuses are like armpits, everyone has them and they all stink!" So many people have excuses on why they "can't" do this or that...but I would say most of the time, when there is a will, there is a way!

Today in church my Pastor preached about soul-winning, and I'll be honest, I have slacked in that area since becoming a Mom. I haven't went out soul-winning since I was pregnant, so I was SUPER convicted during the sermon. There was a teenage boy visiting in the second row with a new family that just joined the church. The Holy Spirit told me to go witness to him right when the invitation started, and I fought with the Holy Spirit for about 5 minutes during the sermon. I made EXCUSES to myself, "Don't go embarrass him in the front row, by asking him to talk with you about Heaven." "He probably is already saved." "I'm sure the family he's with already witnessed to him." Well after thinking those thoughts, I finally said "Lauren, JUST GO!!!" So, when the piano started playing, I prayed all the way down the aisle... and then I got to teenager and asked him if he had ever been shown how to go Heaven, and to my surprise he said no! So, I asked him if he wanted me to show him, and to my surprise again, he said YES! I sat right there and showed him through the Bible how to be saved! He sweetly bowed his head and asked Jesus to save him! As I went back to my seat, I thought, WOW, if I had listened to my excuses, who knows if that young man would have ever gotten saved! I'm glad I listened to the Holy Spirit, instead of my excuses!

So now allow me to discredit some of the most popular excuses I hear on why ladies can't be fashionable and modest.

1. "I can't afford it" I probably hear this excuse the most! This is a very bad excuse...because I am most definitely not rich and I try my best to be a good steward of what God has given me. I only shop at thrift stores, clearance racks, or TJMaxx/Ross! I have done several posts on how to shop frugally and get great clothes!
-How To Be Fashionable & Frugal Post
-How To Stay in Style Post
-Thrifty Thursday Post

2. "I'm plus-sized and I can't look as cute as skinny girls." Well this is DEFINITELY not true. I know many adorable plus sized ladies, who look cuter than most thin girls! It's all about the effort you put into your look!
-Creative & Curvy Post featuring Amanda Wilson
-Sizes, Schmizes Post

3. "I'm too busy to care" or "I'm a stay at home Mom." Ladies, we are the daughters of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! Princess Kate Middleton always cares about how she looks, because she is representing her Monarchy. We are walking, talking representatives of Christ. Let's look first class, and have some confidence! God made us in His image. Let's glorify Him in all we do including our appearance!

4. "I need to lose weight" I absolutely understand this one! It's hard to feel confident when you are still carrying that baby weight or you just need to lose 20 or so lbs. I truly believe if every one asked the Holy Spirit to help them with controlling their weight, He will!

I hope these posts help you!! I love to make women feel beautiful!

Here's my outfit today! I love love love Houndstooth! It's such a classy pattern! I paired my houndstooth coat from TJMaxx with my a-line black dress from JCPenney and my red heels I got from Goodwill. I felt like a million bucks, but it was so cheap! ;)

How I Lost My Postpartum Weight In 8 Weeks

So, if you are curious on how to lose your stubborn weight, this blog post will help you, but I'm warning you, it's not an easy way out..there's no pills, shakes, weird diet plans. It took me hard work, self-control, and accountability.

This was me 8 weeks ago on the left and today on the right! 12 lbs. and TONS of inches lost!

 photo ABM_1413845300.jpg

These pictures are super embarrassing! But, they definitely show how much weight I lost!

 photo ABM_1413750802.jpg

I still have about 7 lbs until I am at my pre-pregnancy weight, but I am able to fit into all my pre-pregnancy clothes again!

I have some friends who did the same thing as I did and lost 20+ lbs. Just depends on how hard you want it! I will admit, I didn't try as hard as I could, but I still got GREAT results. Ok, so here's what I did to lose 12 lbs. in 8 weeks.

Every day I followed this checklist:
___Contact with accountability partner
___Drink 64 oz water
___No food after 9 pm
___1/2 cup fresh or frozen fruit
___2 cups veggies (or 3 cups leafy greens)
___MyFitnessPal food journal
___No sweets
___45 minutes exercise

This is all from the 8-week FIT challenge a friend of mine made on Facebook. If you are interested, the next challenge starts after the Holidays. If you give me your email, I will add you when the next challenge starts! In the group, we have teammates that you contact daily to share your successes or struggles with.

The first thing I did to prepare for the challenge was went to Wal-Mart and bought a big insulated cup so I could keep my water cold to drink all day. I struggled the most with drinking 64 oz. of water every day (exercising helps to get more water in though!) Also, I bought Organic Spinach, frozen sliced strawberries, and bananas for my daily breakfast green smoothie. It tastes AMAZING! I just put 2 handfuls of spinach, 6 oz of water, blend, then add a big handful of frozen strawberries, and one banana, and blend until it's all mixed well. That was the easiest way to make sure I got my veggies/fruit in everyday. One tip my mom taught me, was to make a big salad on Sunday night and eat on it all week! I love salads! I put spinach, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, and some red onion in my salad. I have it pre-made, so for lunch I just throw some of that salad in a low-carb wrap, add some chicken and some ranch, Ta-da! Quick, low-calorie lunch! I also like Boca chicken patties! They are high in protein, and taste great on those thin sandwich buns with a little mayo!

 photo IMAG0616.jpg

Also, I kept track of every thing I ate with the MyFitnessPal app. It's a great tool to show you the nutritional value of your food! The next hardest thing for me was the "no sweets!" I never noticed how much sugar I ate! I used to eat granola bars, yogurt, or some other sugar filled item for breakfast, no wonder I couldn't lose weight! I cut out sugary snacks, desserts, sodas (diet or regular), pretty much anything that you could sit down and indulge a bowl of! This didn't count bread, crackers, or similar items that aren't considered "desserts." That was a big boost in my weight loss! There is ONE cheat day a week, where you can eat sugary items. :) I learned to replace my sugar crave with an apple or some almonds.

The last, and most important key to losing weight is exercise! I started this challenge at 9 weeks postpartum, and I hadn't done any exercising since I had my son. So needless to say, I was out of shape! I started walking a mile 4-5 times a week, pushing my son in the stroller. Then I slowly increased my walking time, and started jogging closer to the end of the 8 weeks! I can now walk/jog 3 miles like nothing! :) I learned to love walking, it's a great way to relieve stress as well! I also use the Nike+ running app to keep track of how far I walk/jog.

 photo fit.jpg

It's all things I already knew I needed to do, but when I had a checklist to do every day, it helped me get it done! I feel SO much better about myself now that I lost 12 lbs. and plan on keep going and following this checklist! Being fit is hard, but so is being fat! Pick your HARD!

 photo ABM_1413851075.jpg

Remember ladies, your body is a temple, it's not yours, you are bought with a price! (I Corinthians 6:20) Just as you believe it's wrong to smoke, drink, do drugs because they destroy your temple, eating JUNK is just as wrong! God only gives us ONE body to serve Him with. The better you take care of it, the better you can serve him! I hope this post encourages someone to get fit! I promise you, you will feel so much better physically, emotionally, mentally, and you will look better in and out ;) of your clothes!

Now, here's the week of my outfits!

Fall Color Combo Series Week 6

I am so excited for this guest post! Pong is a beautiful stay-at-home Mom of four little cuties! She is a huge inspiration to me and many other ladies, that it is possible to be put together even when you are a Mom!

___________________________________________________________

Hello again ladies!! I feel so honored to be doing another blog for the fall color series for our lovely Lauren!!

Fall is one of my favorite seasons! I love the changing of leaves, cooler weather and all the fun fall activities that I get to do with my family and of course the fun fall styles I get to wear! One style in particular that I love to wear in fall are boots, and boots in Michigan are a MUST because of all the snow we get in the winter! ❄️

Today I wanted to share some of my different fall looks in different style boots. If you don't own a pair, it is a wise investment to get a pair. A very popular style boot which I would recommend for everyone wanting to try to start wearing boots are riding boots. These boots typically fall a few inches below the knee and have a flat heel. They can be pricey, but I bought mine on sale on Black Friday for 50% off and they are a great investment. These look great with maxis, pencil skirts and a-line skirts or dresses. Many ladies have asked about wearing maxis with boots, and riding boots work so good with this particular skirt.
Here is my maxi skirt with my riding boots:

 photo image-3-1.jpeg

Another great boot to have are some pull on boots! And they do just that, they are so simple to wear, you literally just pull them on! They do not have a zipper like the riding boots, I have big calves, I know, I'm so sad about it! :( So, for me these are tricky to find. The top part of the boot, should be loose enough to pull up without your calves feeling like they are suffocating or you getting calf rolls! (lol) I looked around for a few months before I found the perfect pair for me at Yonkers and got them for 40% off! I literally wear these all the time, they look great with jean skirts, pencil skirts and dresses as well.
Here are my outfits with my pull on boots:

 photo image-4.jpeg

My last boot is the ankle boot, this boot is really just your preference in taste! Some ladies love the look and some don't. I personally didn't know if I would like them or look good in them, so what I did was buy them used. I got my ankle boots for $3 and figured if they didn't work on me, it was ok because they were cheap. But I personally love the look, they can be worn for a dressier look and I'm short, so I love the extra height it adds on my short frame :) They look great with pencil skirts, a-line skirts, dresses and pencil jean skirts.
Here is my outfit with my ankle boots:

 photo image-5-1.jpeg

Another fun thing about boots is you can accessorize them with cute leg warmers. They can be pricey, so I wanted to share how I made these easy leg warmers out of an old sweater I got for $3.99 at Goodwill!

 photo image-6.jpeg

1. Cut a straight line and cut sleeves off of sweater

 photo image-7.jpeg

2. Take a button, these ones I got at Hobby Lobby for 40% off with a coupon, I love coupons and saving money! I'm Baptist, what can I say! (lol) Sew the buttons onto one side of the sleeve, repeat on the other sleeve with other button.

 photo image-8.jpeg

3. Sew ribbon on the end of the sweater you cut off to keep from fraying! Let me be honest, I didn't since I was too lazy lol but if you ladies wanted too you can :) and viola you have cheap easy leg warmers!

 photo image-3.jpeg

Hope all you ladies have a wonderful day getting your boots out and making some leg warmers!!! :)

__________________________________________________________

Yay! Oh my gosh, I LOVED those DIY leg warmers! Definitely going to try that! Hope you ladies enjoyed the Fall Color Combo Series! God Bless! ♥

How to Have a Remixable Wardrobe

I have had so many ladies ask me what are some essential pieces needed to have a great, remixable wardrobe. I hope this post will help you ladies know what are some staple pieces that you need! (in my opinion!) Disclaimer, you may not agree with me on all the essential pieces I choose, but I feel like I have a VERY remixable closet, since I try to never wear the same thing twice, (but life happens & sometimes I do) but I don't buy new things very often! :)

What is a remixable wardrobe?

A remixable wardrobe means you can mix-and-match your current clothes and create many different outfits. Not just having one piece that goes with another specific piece. Back before I started Modern Modesty, I was not so great at mixing and matching. I was very one-track minded with outfits and repeated the same ones a lot. When I starting studying my closet and doing a lot of fashion challenges, I learned to make so many different outfits with my current pieces. So, here are some things I've learned on my journey.

Build your wardrobe with pieces that are versatile.

Skirts

For example, this floral pencil skirt is adorable, but unless it was very cheap ($10 or less)..I would pass on it, because it is not a very versatile piece. There might be 2 or 3 different ways you could wear it, but it's a bold memorable piece, so you couldn't wear it very often anyways.

 photo remix4.jpg

But instead, a more versatile piece would be a solid, classic pencil, like below. You could literally wear this skirt with a thousand different colored/patterned tops, cardigans, blazers, etc.

 photo remix5.jpg

I have over 75 skirts..but I probably on a regular basis wear about 10-15 of them. The ones I wear the most are my remixable pieces, because I am constantly thinking of ways to stretch my closet. Of course, the remixable pieces get used the most, because they go with so many different colors and patterns!

Here are my most worn and remixable skirts. I think every woman needs a black, navy, gray, and an assortment of other colored skirts to have a remixable wardrobe.

 photo remix2.jpg

Also, some great classic printed skirts are great assets to have in a remixable wardrobe. These are a few of my classic prints I wear a lot.

 photo remix3.jpg

Tops

I think tops (cardigans, blouses, sweaters, blazers, etc.) are easier and cheaper to buy in your trendier prints, colors, and patterns. I usually buy a shirt if I can think of 3-4 different ways to wear it, and it's below $15. I will spend up to $20 on a solid or classic printed cardigan, because I know I will wear it hundreds of different ways.

So the moral is, buy items that you can create TONS of other outfits with. Think solids and classic prints. Classic prints would be polka dots, stripes, leopard, and houndstooth.

Learn where to find versatile pieces.

I just did a blog post on this last week. Look at the above list of solid and classic patterned skirts, and decide what you need to have a more remixable closet, then, make a list and shop only for those items! Now, remember, you aren't going to find all these skirts in one shopping trip, it might takes months or years to re-build your wardrobe. I suggest to ALWAYS look at thrift stores or consignment shops first. In those two pictures of my remixable skirts, 5 out of the 11 came from JCPenney. Their Worthington brand skirts fit me perfectly, and they go on sale a lot!

Learn how to remix your pieces once you have them.

One thing I always do is search on Pinterest for outfit ideas with a specific piece, for example, if I wanted to know what outfits I could make with a pink cardigan, I would search "pink cardigan outfits" on Pinterest and then my imagination goes wild!

I could do this with tons of different pieces, but since I don't have all day...(and I have a baby that I'm playing with as I write this)...I'll just show you some different ways I've remixed my hot pink cardigan.

There's just SOME of the ways I've worn my pink cardigan!:)

I hope that helped! If you have any more questions, just comment...I'd be glad to help!

Today, I was a leopard lover for the #modmodfallchallenge, and I wore one of my all-time favorite dresses! I haven't gotten to wear this since before I was pregnant, so I've missed it! :)
