Embracing Modesty, No. 49

Embracing Modesty, No. 49

Wow!  Only 3 more modesty posts to go and the year will be over.  I can’t believe how much we have enjoying doing this series.

Which makes me wonder….what do you want to see for next year?  More modesty pictures?  Or something else like our meal plans?  Or maybe homeschool ideas?  I’d love to hear from you!!!

For this week I am going to show a few things my girls have been wearing.  They are such cutie pies that I have to share some of their looks.

This first look was on a day before it got so c-c-cold.  Faith is wearing a skirt she got at Versona and a layer of t-shirts and a vest.  She made the necklace with 3 bullet cases she found in the yard.

I’ve said before that my youngest daughter, Patience, likes a more sporty look and this picture proves it.  This outfit is her personality to a T.  Most of it we got at thrift stores.

This next picture of Hope shows her personality too….she likes a simple outfit with a teeny twist (as in the tights).  She got the sweater and skirt at JCPenney.

Grace is my classic girl.  Scarves and hats are the name of her game.  And oh my this green is her color!  Knowing what colors look good on you is a great way to know how to shop.

And oh the red hat…..how adorable is that?!  I am not a hat person….I mean I want to be then I try one on and realize, nope, not good.  But Grace wears them so well.

It’s such a delight to see what outfits my girls put together each day.  Winter is a fun time to play with layering and leggings. And boots….how could I forget the boots?!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the Embracing Modesty Gallery with all of the posts from this series!

And don’t forget to let me know if you have a preference for what series we should do for 2014!


  1. I just love this series! I am lucky in that I have boys and it’s not hard to get them to dress modestly but I have friends with girls and they will appreciate these posts, too!

    Your girls are so beautiful – and dressing modestly makes their beauty shine even more!

  2. Oh, I hope you continue with your modesty pics. It is SO encouraging! Plus we have to see how you are continuing on your getting healthy journey! It is so encouraging to see how women and girls can dress modestly and look feminine and still be stylish! Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and many blessings for the new year!!

  3. Oh, please don’t stop with the modesty posts! My daughter and I are learning so much from you. I do hope you continue with this series. You are such an encouragement and blessing to us.

  4. I love Faith’s outfit, how cute!!! I’d love to see more modesty posts for the next year, along with some homeschooling stuff thrown in, perhaps. 🙂

  5. How refreshing to see young ladies actually LOOK like young ladies! If it hadn’t been for yard sales and the Salvation sale hut my siblings and I would have had very little growing up. I still to this day love to find clothes at yard sales! It actually bothers me to buy new items. 🙂

  6. I’d love to see more modesty posts, as well as some meal plans! I’m a young mother with “three-under-two” and I’m always looking for easy, delicious meals. Crockpot ideas are even better!

  7. I have really enjoyed these post, no matter what you would like to share will be great!!

  8. I would like to see how you plan your meals .

  9. I am a new reader but PLEASE do more modesty posts. We can find meal plans and homeschool ideas all over Pinterest but true modesty is so hard to find!

  10. Lovely! I especially like Faith’s skirt and Grace’s style is so me! 🙂

  11. These are great, and my daughter especially enjoys them. I would LOVE to know how you homeschool a wide range of kids. I am having a lot of trouble right now doing middle school, elementary, and preschool!! Especially with two we are thinking might be dyslexic (elementary). I feel so spread thin that I accomplish nothing. =0( (We have 6 kiddos total… 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 1)


  12. That last outfit is my favorite! I hope you keep going with your modesty posts. I share your modesty standards, and it’s always encouraging to see others dressing similarly.
    P.S. I saw bright turquoise and bright magenta tights in the store yesterday. I paused for half a second to consider them, since I have a sweatshirt in each of those colors. Then moved on, since it would be a little too much brightness on my legs for my personal taste. But I did think to myself “I bet Lisa Pennington would have gotten them”.. 🙂

  13. I would love to see how you plan your meals. I also like the modesty series. Maybe meals with a touch of modesty thrown in?

  14. I too, have enjoyed your modesty series. In the spirit of Christmas, I’m going to be child-like and say I want it all;) Modesty, meals, math & more……

  15. We have enjoyed this series so much! My 12 year old daughter waits with baited breath for the next installment 🙂
    As far as next year, I could really use some encouragement on staying the course in homeschooling – I’d love to hear more about how it looks in your family.
    But, please, would you and the girls continue slipping in your modesty message? Seeing you all in your real-life situations dressing like ladies is such an encouragement.

  16. Your daughter’s are all beautiful! I wish I knew how to put outfits together like they do but I’m lacking in fashion sense.
    Any series you decide to do will be great. My vote is I’d really like to see how you plan your family meals.

  17. I love this series! I would like to see this continue, but I’d also like to see some meal planning posts, especially those to do with your new way of eating.

  18. I love, love, love your Embracing modesty series and so does my 10 year old. Please continue. I wouldn’t mind seeing meals you make as well!

  19. I vote for more modesty posts! I also liked when you explained why do you dress like you do, how do you explain to your kids why you expect them to dress modestly,..) so I would enjoy “theoretical” posts, too (ex: how your community reacts, do they dress modestly, too? do you ever read fashion magazines?,…)
    But whatever you decide, I am sure it will be interesting!

  20. I like the modesty posts too. Maybe once in a while you could put the day’s menu up too? Don’t know if you ever got my reply re modesty–but after the one where you said you got some clothing at Target, I rushed there and got 2 skirts. I am enjoying wearing them.
