Pink Linen

I wore this outfit yesterday. I sooo wanted to wear something from my new things.And this pink linen skirt is pretty much the only thing that already fits. It also is a little to big but comfortable and makes the skirt longer.

I love bright pinks and reds with navy blue. So that is what I did. I wore a navy striped Tee. I got it at walmart almost 4 years ago and still love it's casual feminine style. Since it is still a bit chilly in the morning and evening I wore this navy sweater and brought the hot pink up to my face with a pink felt rose.

While working on the photos I noticed that my necklace clasp was in the front....oh hubby didn't see while taking these pictures of my.

And...if you're wondering where I am taking these pictures. It's at my church's new building. It's being renovated my Pastor's office being the farthest along with it's freshly painted walls. And since the whole front of the building has huge windows it is very bright and cheery....perfect picture place. to continue my at home Italian date with honey. Just stopped by to give you my fun outfit.

My New Finds

So on Monday I helped my grandma bring some things up to favorite exchange store. My grandma has been helping out an acquaintance go through his stuff and get rid of things he doesn't need...and we bring it to out favorite little store.

You might have heard me tell about it but if not... they have a policy that if you bring something you can fill up the bag you brought with other items from their store. Love!  That store is one of my greatest joys. I can be a crazy shopper without spending a penny!

If you are wondering about the card in the middle of my pile of clothes. I "Dress My Truth" and was also making sure the colors (tints) went with what looks best on me! And they did! ☺ And if you watch the video to see which Type you are...can you guess what I am?

Only like 2-3 of the skirts actually fit. Most of the are 1-5 sizes bigger! But with my love of refashioning and sewing I'll have a few more colored skirts in my wardrobe by next week hopefully! If the coloring is not great I have: checkered brown, shiny gold, light lime, yellow, winter white, short pink, polka dot and long pink.

And did I say I like polka dot. I live my polka dot jean much fun!And love the two favorite colors- blue and turquoise.

Cannot wait to share outfits with these colored skirts!

Knitted Dress

This dress was gifted to last year.I really haven't worn it much because the dress is a little to short for me.....nothing that a cute lace slip can't fix.

I actually bought that lace just so I can sew it on a slip to extend some of my shorter skirts and dresses. Since the dress is knit it is very comfortable and easily is pulled over the knees while sitting making the dress more modest.

The days here have been very cool in the mornings and then gets very warm during the day. So I wore the short white sweater in the morning but had my lace T-shirt on for when it warmed up.

How long/short are you comfortable with?

Through the Fields

This Sunday I actually got to take a picture of my outfit outside. We were at my mom's and when we walked the dog we got some pictures of my pastel outfit. I love my pastels and you have seen this dress's definitly a favorite of mine.....I have not worn it since Valentines Day.

I wore high heels to church....but quickly put my comfortable sparkle shoes to walk the dog. Never did get a picture of my day ladies I'll do a post of all my heels. lol

And I am totally loving the canola flowers blooming everywhere!!

Striped Woods

Last week I took a trip to the woods with my first grade. It was our first field trip and they all did very good. I am very proud of them and cannot wait to do a field trip again.

Saying all of this to tell you why I chose this outfit. It's a casual outfit for me....don't wear it often but was perfect for my trip. Did a bit of pattern mixing with my scarf and Tee. Wore my navy jacket in the morning until it started getting pretty hot. We've been having pretty warm weather the last few days....cooling down again though.

Love my new mirror in the entry way......

Would you wear this outfit for a hike in the woods?

Royal Maxima

Wore this outfit yesterday....and while we were waiting to be picked up for church I had Patrick take a picture of my outfit.

I got this new maxi last week on sale....$16. I normally don't spend money on clothes but I want to get more solid maxis in my closet and this was a start. I have a tank top with that same royal blue which made two of my first graders ask if it was a's a skirt. lol This maxi is VERY long though. I see myself cutting a few inches off in the future. I was getting stuck on my shoes, chairs and what not.

The blouse was gifted to me about 4 years ago.... The shoes I got last summer and I wore them ALL THE TIME....and they are still sooo comfortable. I wear a lot of white and these sanguine covered boat shoes are just cute and comfortable. favorite shoe store.

What's your favorite place to get shoes?

Liebster Award // 10 Things about me.

I was nominated by Emily from "Fearfully Wonderfully Me" to recieve the Liebster Award. It makes me happy.....I've recieved the Liebster Award once or twice before but did not have to time to answer questions... and since I have some extra time today and I always love reading people's we go.

 1. What’s your favorite Bible verse (or life verse)?
This is a hard one. I don't have one verse that I like....I have several verses that are special to me depending on how I feel and what memory they are connected too. One verse that still inspires me is:
 "Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands." 
Proverbs 14:1

I talk about why I like this verse in this old video.

 2. Are you right or left handed?
I am right handed

My husband is left handed.....which means we can eat AND hold hands at the same time. lol

 3. Last song you listened to? song by "Sound Doctrine": The Shelter of His Blood

 4. Lipstick, lip gloss, or neither? 
Lipstick!!! Love my 24h Super Stay from Maybelline

5. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go? 
Alaska! My biggest rustic beauty. ☺

6. If God dropped $100 from heaven, what would you do with it? 
Tithe and then use it for my household....

7. What has been the most surprising thing (so far) about becoming a blogger? 
It's hard work! Planning on making a business with my "Blue Birdhouse" blog. Feminine Modesty is my just for fun blog.... ☺ Love all of you ladies and your support!

8. What’s your favorite season? 
Summer!! I love warm weather....I am always freezing. This girl knows how to layer.

 9. Cats or dogs? 
Dogs!! I was crazy about dog as a kid/teen. Now I think they're too much work to want to own one.

 10. What’s one thing you love about yourself?
My creativity. I get the most compliments for my creativity.  I enjoy it and do it well.

This was definitly fun!! ☺ I will not choose another blog because it's crazy hard to find one to nominate....but it was fun for me to look around on Emily's blog and see a face behind the name.

Now it's time for bed in my part of the world. Goodnight lovely ladies!

Turqoise & Blue // What I've Been Up Too

Hello Ladies,

Sorry I have not posted for such a long time....but finally I edited these picures from last week and sharing them here on Feminine Modesty. Last week we went to visit some friends that live in the country and we took a long walk in the beautiful German spring weather. The sun ist still a bit chilly so my trench coat is perfect.

I am in love with my blue trench coat. I normally don't spend money on clothes but when I saw just a few left over at an Aldi sale I had to check if they hstill had my size... they did. Since then I've been wearing it every day. It's just so classy! :)

The skirt is new to me and I totally love the fit. Flowy but not to big...pretty but comfortable. The scarf I got for 2€....☺ I like wearing turquoise and blue together.

If you are wondering about the paint on my fingers....go to "The Blue Birdhouse" and follow me there...quite a few projects I'll be writing about soon! You won't want to miss it.
