LulaRoe Craze

I'm sure by now you've heard of LulaRoe? If not, have you been under a rock?! :P But, seriously it seems like ALL of my friends are jumping on board and opening up their own LulaRoe boutiques. My favorite thing about LulaRoe is the great dress & skirt options! I love that once I found my size for a certain style, I can order without wondering it will fit or not!

One of my readers who owns her own boutique wanted me to try the Azure skirt, which I didn't have yet, so she was sweet enough to send me one to try and one of you lucky ladies are going to get a chance to win one too! ♥

I have the Cassie skirt already, but it is very "body-con" if you will...so I think the Azure skirt is definitely a lot more modest by its self! Same thing with the Julia dress, it is more form fitting, and the Nicole is flowy and perfect! The Cassie and Julia can be made modest by throwing a kimono or longer shirt over it! But if you prefer to not have to "fix" things, the Azure skirt and Nicole dress will be perfect for you! (Those are the only styles I have, but I know there are many other modest options, I just don't have them yet!)

The Azure skirt is a flowy a-line style skirt, that will flatter any body shape! Here's how I styled mine!

PS. This is the most comfiest skirt of all time.

Each pattern is only made into 2000 pieces, and then it's gone forever! So, that's why its like a treasure hunt to find your size and pattern!

Have a great week & God Bless ♥

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.

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."
