My 7 Year-Old Brother Picks My Outfit

Yep, so it’s just what the title says. I didn’t give him any help! 😀 I’m going to show you the outfit first and then share my thoughts.

Okay, my main (and basically only) problem with this outfit is the scarf… It just really, really makes an outfit that I would probably wear, into a outfit that I definitely wouldn’t wear. I did tell him when he was creating the outfit that I didn’t need a scarf, but he said “scarves are cool so you need one”. He also showed me how he wanted me to style the scarf.  😀

Other then the scarf I would probably where this. The mix of patterns is pretty good, and all the black that shows up throughout the outfit really brings everything together. 

Outfit Details: 

Shirt- Given to me

Cami- Borrowed 

Skirt- Thrift Store

Jacket- Thrift Store

Scarf- Dollor Store…? Not sure

Shoes- Walmart  

 

Please comment below how you think my little bro did. And stayed tuned for part two where my five year-old brother picks my outfit!

Modestly Styled Gals #2 -Rebekah

Today I am having another one of my amazing friends on here to share one of her favorite outfits and her thoughts on modesty.

Hi everyone! My name is Rebekah. I am a Christian girl who wants to strive to be more like Jesus! I believe the way we dress is just one of the ways we can honor God. Modesty is important because the world cannot see our hearts, but they can see that we want to glorify God with the clothes we choose to wear. I would like to thank Elisabeth Shonhaar for the opportunity to share my thoughts on what modesty means to me! The outfit I am wearing is (in my opinion) perfect for spring, and a great casual outfit! The bell-sleeved blouse is floral, which always screams spring to me! I also love wearing ankle boots in the spring because of the unpredictable spring weather, and I think ankle boots are super cute year-long ! I enjoyed getting to do this!

Aww, thank you so much Rebekah for wanting to come on my blog and be a part of it. I’m so glad we were able to do this!  If anyone else would like to do this send me a message at missbeth1897@hotmail.com and we can talk!

Modestly Styled Gals #1

(I’ve never wanted this blog to be about just me. It’s first and foremost about God and modesty. So I’ve asked an amazing friend of mine to guest post here! She was kind enough to say yes, so here’s a very cute outfit of her’s and her thoughts on modesty! And I know this outfit isn’t super springy or anything but believe it or not where I live it’s still pretty cold. Really as I speak it’s snowing. So if you live in a climate similar to mine this outfit is for you! )

Anyway thanks for reading.)

Have a great day! Also comment below what you think of this new series.

OOTD- Comfy Outfit

This is just a super short post today. The outfit is one I would wear every day if I could! It’s just really comfortable and warm which is a most for me in the winter. 🙂

Outfit details:

Shirt (\Hoodie)- Walmart

Skirt- Thrift Store

Leggings- Walmart

Boots- Giant Tiger

So that’s pretty much it. Like I said, super short post but wanted to share it with y’all because it’s very “me”. I love the color dark green and I love denim skirts so I wear this outfit quite a bit. If you want to see how I switch it up so it doesn’t look the exact same every time I wear it, I’ll do a post about that. 

What’s your favorite kind of outfit and do you like boots? I like these but overall they aren’t really “my thing”.

Crazy Sept. Days

This post should actually be called “crazy past few weeks”! 😛 But I felt that was too long. My family started school in late August (we can do that because we homeschool), just to get a bit of a head-start this year. So adjusting to the new schedule is partly why I haven’t posted in a while (sorry about that). And yeah, one of my sisters recently had a birthday. Things have generally been crazy these past few days.

Anyway, here’s the outfit I wore the other day.

Are you home-schooled? When did you start school?

Yet Another Maxi Skirt

Yesterday I was out at a mall with my family and I found a great sale on maxi skirts (10$ for one) so I bought a couple and here’s one. 

me 10 1

me 10 2

 

 

This one is my favorite of the two, the other one is just black and gray. I really wanted to get a colorful one because I have to many gray and black things… so I got this one which still has gray in it but pink stripes is better then say white or black! 🙂  

me 10 5

I love this skirt so much! I like having pieces of clothes that can provide a pop of color to my outfit! It can be anything from a skirt, to a necklace. Just something to turn a boring outfit into a less boring outfit. 😀  

me 10 4

My “choker” is actually a silver chain I had and I just put it to fit around my neck like a choker. Have you ever done anything like that?

Outfit details:

Shirt- Thrift Store

Skirt- I can not for the life of me remember the name of the store.

Sandals- Payless 

Necklace- Gift

Bracelet- Gift

Well, I can never think of a “cool” way to end my posts so….

OOTD \\ How to get dye out of clothes

Nothing really special happened today except I finally remembered to take pictures of my outfit for a post. 😀

me 9 2

I was looking though my closet wondering what skirt to wear, I saw this one and I remembered how much I liked it so I decided to wear it. 😉  It’s one of those days I don’t have to wear shoes! 😀 

me 9 3

I layered two necklaces to do this.

Outfit details:

Shirt- Reitmans  

Cami- Dollar Store

Skirt- Thrift Store 

Necklaces- Gift\Thrift Store 

Bracelet- Gift  

The other thing I wanted to include in this post is a cleaning hack\stain removal I learned this week. My sister got a new (pink) skirt recently and I forgot to wash it separately so pink dye got on not everything but a few things like one of my favorite dressy tops, my brother’s white t-shirts, and my other brother’s church pants. oh and they also went though the dryer which usually sets a stain!

Obviously I wasn’t happy, I mean common that’s one of my favorite tops! I went online and Googled my problem, the first thing I found was something saying I should buy this “wonder” product, I’m a “take action now while I’m thinking about it” kinda girl so I kept looking. There was pretty much only one other thing I tried to and it didn’t work…. So I grabbed a bowl filled it with hot water, added some vinegar and soaked my shirt really well and wrung it out. I did this three times and I could see the dye coming out. I then simply hung it on the clothes line and waited to see if all the dye had come out and it had! I did the same thing for my brothers stuff and it worked as well.

So yeah if that ever happens to you at least try doing that.

Thanks for reading!

I love the denim skirt; I got it a couple days ago at a Thrift Store, (that’s the story of my life 😀 ).  It’s super stretchy, comfortable, and I like the color too (not to dark, not to light).

I think this outfit would be kind of boring if not for the pop of color that the camisole gives! Your thoughts?  

Outfit details:

Shirt- Reitman’s

Cami- Dollar Store 😛

Skirt- Thrift Store

Scarf- Dollar Tree

Earrings- Claries’

Sandals- Payless

Thanks for reading! I’m sorry it’s a shortish post.

Happy Canada Day!!!

Happy Canada Day y’all!

Eek! I’m so excited! I mean how awesome is it that it’s the 150th birthday of Canada and I will live to remember it?

Anyway today was amazing, we are at some other friends house right now and they (and us of course) celebrated by having a cookout. Their entire church was invited plus some of their friends, so I was able to make some new friends! Of course it started raining so we had to go inside but it was still fun. They played a game too (it lasted basically the duration of the party), everyone had a clothes-pin and you weren’t supposed to say the word “like”! It was so fun I lost my clothes-pin pretty soon but I had fun trying to trick others into saying it. 😛 

Here’s my sister’s post about Canada Day, it’s pretty awesome!

Okay so here’s what I wore. I wanted to wear something different but, like an idiot :P, I forgot it! 😦
