Embracing Modesty, No. 50

Embracing Modesty, No. 50

This week I have been doing a lot of running around.  I have a limited wardrobe right now, but that’s OK….I love to mix and match. I really buy things with that in mind since I like to play with my clothes.

This first outfit is a mix of old and new.  The red shirt is from JCPenney, silver tank from Target, but the skirt is old as the hills.  And of course, my new obsession with tights shall be a running theme this week.

This next picture is the same silver tank with a gray and white striped top (also from JCPenney) and a red skirt from Versona.  I’m feeling very festive these days.  And don’t you love the trash can in the background?  It’s all about style around here.

This next outfit is, again, old and new.  The black cardigan is from Target, but everything else is old.  I had them in the back of my closet waiting for if I ever lost weight and now they are almost too big for me, so I am wearing them before they go in the pile.  The lace skirt I sometimes also wear under other skirts….it just depends on my mood.

On this day the sun came out so we got a little bit of rays in the photo.  All of these clothes are old except for the purple tshirt (another JCPenney Black Friday purchase).  The shirt is so big on me that I probably won’t be able to wear it again, so I had to give it one last moment.

Lastly, we make it back to the front porch. Al of this is new.  The silver shirt and skirt are both from target.  And the tights….oh yeah baby.

I am enjoying playing with my clothes and putting together outfits.  You never know what I will be wearing when I come out of my room each morning.

Thanks for stopping by and have a very, very Merry Christmas!!!!

  13. Lisa,

    I especially like the last photo… you look so svelte! You look absolutely fabulous, & I am so happy for you with your weight loss success. 🙂

  14. OH Lisa, you look incredible!! I am so proud of you!! I love the outfits… Have you thought about selling the too big things at a consignment shop, on-line, or a yard sale? It would help to finance your new wardrobe. I’ve done that with my stuff… even the really old stuff. My “new” things have come from Goodwill. Do you have a Goodwill store within a reasonable distance? Ours has everything 1/2 off the first Saturday of each month… it is super crowded but often times the time spent is worth it. I wanted to avoid the crowd tomorrow (special Christmas 1/2 off sale) so I went ahead and paid full price today. Most expensive thing was a Eddie Bauer denim blazer for $6.99. Good luck with your search!

  15. You look GREAT! I am so happy for you!

  16. You look so pretty and skinny…..great job with your weight loss program. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  17. Lisa, I never worried about modesty as a child growing up in a house full of girls. I never worried about it in my young married life. But now that I have perspective and a bit of age, I wish I had dressed as modestly then as I do now. This isn’t for reasons of faith, as I’m pretty much agnostic. Now, for me, modesty has become about respect for myself and for others. I appreciate that you show women our age how to dress modestly and vibrantly and that your daughters do the same. Keep on passing that knowledge on!
