Hello!!!!! Is anybody still out there in the blogosphere!?! I took a very LONG break, a much needed break! So here's a Luke update for those who don't follow me on Facebook/instagram: Luke just finished his hardest, most intense chemo phase, Delayed Intensification. We get a week off of chemo, and then Tuesday, the 27th, if he makes counts (ANC must be at 750), he will start Interim Maintenance 2 (IM2), which consists of 3 different chemos, which is supposedly not as bad as prior phases. Then after 8 weeks of IM2, we will FINALLY start maintenance, which is going to the clinic once a month for one IV chemo, and taking daily oral chemos, and a week of steroids each month. Maintenance is both exciting and scary all at the same time. We've been going to get weekly blood counts for a whole year, sometimes 2-3 a week, so it is VERY scary that we will only get one blood count per month for the rest of his maintenance treatment. Since he still has his port in, we still have to be super careful for him to not be around anyone sick for the remainder of his treatment, because with any fever of 100.4 or higher we have to go to the ER and get blood cultures done to make sure his port is not infected. We will be totally finished with chemo on June 18, 2019! I CAN'T wait for that day! So there's a little update on our crazy life. Luke is doing very well considering he just went through the hardest phase. He has needed a couple of blood transfusions, but other than that, he hasn't had any complications. Praise the Lord!
I was contacted by eShakti a month or so ago, and was asked to review a dress. I have worked with eShakti in the past and they have great quality, so I decided to do another review. I have been looking for an olive dress, since my old one is too big. I found this olive dress and thought it would be perfect for what I was looking for! I'm so glad I chose it, because it was a great pick! You have the option to customize any dress, you can pick different sleeves, length, necklines, etc. So, it works well for super picky ladies! ;) I actually didn't customize this dress, but I did my last one.
Here's the stock picture of this dress:
And here's how I styled it! :)

Since I can't really go OUT shopping very often anymore, I have become an online shopping addict! Please Luke, hurry up and get your immune system back up, so I can go back out shopping again! Haha! But as of lately, I am a sucker for comfortable dresses/skirts since I'm pretty much always either at home or at the hospital.
We all know finding dresses long enough is a hard task to accomplish. I've been on the Shabby Apple website many times eyeing their gorgeous modest dresses, so when they contacted me to do a review & giveaway, I was SUPER excited! Shabby Apple truly has a dress for every occasion, from casual to formal.
Since I don't have any special events to go to, I decided to pick a more everyday dress that could be dressed up or down. I chose the Sycamore Jersey Dress. It is sized by numbers, not S, M, or L, which is different for a jersey type dress. I kind of liked that, because I ordered a 10 and it fit perfectly!! I would say it is very true to size. This dress is amazingly comfortable, I felt like I was wearing pajamas to church.
If you head over to my Instagram, I'm doing a giveaway for a $25 gift card to Shabby Apple!
JORD loves Modern Modesty readers so much that they are giving away to ONE of you a $100 gift card, and ALL of you get a $20 off coupon just for entering the giveaway here! I've shared how much I love their watches, but my husband loves them even more! Such a perfect gift for your hubby! ♥
I should be at the hospital all week, *fingers crossed* if Luke makes counts tomorrow! This will be his LAST and final admission for high dose methotrexate! YAY! Interim Maintenance is almost done! Thank you for your prayers, we need & appreciate them! Love you all ♥
It's about that time where we can start getting excited that fall is coming! You know what that means...pumpkin spice everything, red leaves, and cooler weather! It also means that most of our bright summery clothes get put away until the spring time! I don't know if you're like me, but I love pieces that can be worn in summer & fall! I found some of the most perfect transitional pieces and wanted to share them with you!
This dress came from PinkBlush, I absolutely LOVE their site and the hundreds of dresses they have! PS, for all my pregnant mamas, they have the BEST maternity section ever! PS. They have a discount code for 25% sitewide, just enter WHATUNEED at checkout!
I know a lot of you nursing moms are always looking for dresses to nurse in, and this would be super easy to nurse in!
I also received my first skirt extender from Outskirts, and if you needed some extra length on this dress, it's great to pair it with.
The only downside about this specific extender is that it has full bottom, so it only blends well with another full bottom dress. Most of my dresses are fairly straight at the bottom, so I need to get a straighter extender next!
The cool thing about this extender slip, is that it has an interchangeable bottom, so you can change the color or the style super easily!
I have been looking for a modest cold-shoulder shirt for a while and I finally found one at Bealls!! I wore it on a date with my husband and he loved it! It's also super transitional for fall!
I also have found a new skirt that I LOVE from H&M, it's super stretchy like yoga pants, and only $12.99! I got it in 3 colors, and love to wear them around the hospital and my house! When I go out in public, I usually wear a tunic or kimono to cover my booty! ;) It's rather body con!
Last by definitely not least is my new favorite dress style, the Julia dress from LulaRoe! (Sidenote: I will be having a LulaRoe Pop-up in September, I'll share the group when I do!) But this dress literally feels like a big t-shirt. SO comfy and stylish!
Also, my beautiful friend Melissa did a review on Younique's Skin Perfecting Concealer for me, and I LOVE how she uses it and she gives her honest opinion! Subscribe to her channel to get more makeup tips!
Thank you so much for reading! I love you all! God Bless & have a great week!♥
