Mustard and Polka Dots

 

Hello June!! Boy, does time fly so fast! We’re already half-way through the year. This realization motivated  me to strive harder to make my 2014 more productive. We still have 6 months in front of us, let us grab every opportunity to achieve our dreams. The message for today’s Sunday Service reminded me that as long as I maintain a good companionship with God, He will be there with me every step of the way. There may be storms and trials in life, but I know that He will be holding my hand. Together, let us stand up and start the other half of the year with enthusiasm and hope knowing we are going to where God wants us to be.

I have worn this dress in a previous post (click here), but I have been bothered about how short it is already. However, I did not want to give it away because Mustard is so in right now ! Believe me, check Pinterest. haha. So I “modestified” my dress my adding a full circle skirt, a polka dot one. I bought the skirt this morning at MAGS, where I bought this other modest skirt (they still have that skirt at their Ayala Centrio branch). They have a bunch of midi skirts that you would instantly fall in love with. I think this boutique is now my new favorite! I was contemplating on whether I should buy the red polka dot skirt or this black one. But I chose the black one as a polka dot skirt is a closet staple. Pretty soon, I’m gonna buy the red one for a more vintage/Minnie Mouse vibe! And oh, MAGS is on a 10% off Back to School SALE on ALL items until June 15 that is why I’m grabbing every opportunity while the SALE sign is still on, some items are even on 50% off sale.

Enough talking, here is today’s OOTD:

Ornate

I recently bought plain shirts from Bench for my everyday errands and day outs. So for today’s date with my friends, I decided to pair this shirt with a flowy maxi skirt to give a girly feel to my outfit. And because Style Me May’s challenge for Today is entitled “Your Best Foot Forward”, I bought sandals that were on sale to add to my whole ensemble. This outfit has a chic yet comfortable vibe that I would definitely wear every single day.

Check out the details on this ornate skirt! Cruella and Co has many unique designs for maxi skirts , you have got to check their Instagram out. They even supplied skirts for Kathryn Bernardo for her Got To Believe TV series.  Some of their skirts are made out of jersey fabric, and some are made out of chiffon so you can choose any according to your preference.

Since I do not own a pair of sandals, I decided to buy one for this outfit, but I did not want to spend more than 500 pesos or 11 dollars. It was a good thing that Robinson’s had a shoes and bags sale this month so I bought these super cool sandals at 25% off for only 485 pesos!

Mothers are the biggest blessing we could ever have. They give all their time and effort to raise their children well, take care of household matters, and be a loving wife. They often go on sleepless nights especially when we were young. Mothers are given to us by God to be our guide and our stronghold. It is but fitting for us to repay the goodness our moms did, not just on Mother’s Day, but every single day.

I could practically tell my mom anything, she is my bestfriend and ally in this world. She is always there to listen to me and is the only one who can understand me ,I can never ask for more, my mom has done a lot for my family. If there was one verse to describe my mother, it would be from Proverbs 31 : 28

28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed.

Mom thank you for being my bestfriend and for raising us with the Bible by your side. Thank you for all the love you have shown and you know that I love you very much. And thank you for telling me I look great in my outfit today ;)

So here’s my OOTD based on the Style Me May challenge: Vintage Vixen.

When I first saw this skirt on the display window,I knee I had to have it for today. So after a few days of saving,I finally got it. I love how fluffy it is and how the floral design brings a vintage vibe to the skirt. Sometimes, splurging on a great item could be very worth it.

I was looking for a top that would fit the theme, and I remembered I had this peter-pan collar blouse that I got for 10% off at a sale. Though it was still pricey despite the discount, it’s quality and re-usability made me realize that it is a great find.

To finish this look I put on a pearl necklace and bracelet set, grabbed this satchel, and put on my heels.

Great Sunday and Mothers’ Day outfit I should say. This is by far my favorite outfit yet

May 2: Mint To Be

We’re now on the second day of the May photo challenge: Mint to Be! You probably have heard of the mint craze as probably everyone has a mint colored item on their wardrobe. This color isn’t simply called green, it deserved a name on its own, just like the color coral. Some green colored pieces may be too striking to wear or may look too Christmas-y but this shade is so pleasing to the eye you can wear it anytime and anywhere!

So I used my 200 peso ($4) midi skirt that was made by my seamstress and paired it with a black shirt and a mint statement necklace (it’s gorgeous I’m in love).

Scroll down for the outfit post! God bless you!

Modern Modesty

I started this blog a few months ago to help me in my journey towards modesty. I admit, sometimes I get discouraged and think that I’ll just buy shorter skirts again because those are the only ones on display. And sometimes I still get tempted to wear my short dresses whenever I see cute outfit ideas on Pinterest. But let me tell you one of the main factors that helped me continue on my journey.

When I was at a low point in my fashion history and was deciding to just delete my blog,  I joined Lauren’s Modern Modesty group and was greatly encouraged by all the Christian women posting their OOTDs and helping each other dress fashionably for His glory. I have been following Lauren’s Modern Modesty BLOG for a while now looking for outfit ideas, and in the group she manages, you see more women are giving ideas and helping each other out. Also, I happened to follow a modest outfit board in Pinterest because I really loved her fashion sense and I found that she was also in the Modern Modesty group, that’s you Melissa! Check her boards out here.  Words cannot express how grateful I am for this group. You ladies may not know it , but you made me stronger and made me confirm that my decision to give up my old clothes was the right one. Leave me a comment if you’re reading this and you’re from the Modern Modesty group!!

The journey is a tough one, with just a few fashionable modest apparel, and I still even have above the knee length skirts with me, until I can purchase longer ones, but I know the journey will be worth it.

So, without further ado, here’s today’s Sunday outfit.: a perfect long sleeve lace top I had since years ago but only got the chance to wear today, and a maxi skirt so comfortable you could wear it everyday. You can actually just pair any kind of lace top with any maxi skirt and you know you’re good to go! The whole outfit only costs 1,300 pesos (28 USD) over all, with the shoes costing more than the top and skirt combined, but hey, I know it’s a good investment ;> Let me know what you think and have a blessed Sunday!

This morning I received a text from my very close friend (check out her blog here) about how 1 Samuel 16: 7 reminds us that

God chooses substance over style, and He wants us to do the same. While the outside world looks at the outside of people. He’s concerned with the inside: who we are becoming. He wants us to have substance ourselves, to be able to see the substance in others, and to value it above outward appearance. After all, styles change. Substance can last forever.

 

All you need is pink

Okay, let me just start off by saying that aside from the color purple, my favorite color is beige.  Beige and all the other shades of light brown. Because I  don’t  like the color white, I always opt for beige, light brown, off white, or blush. Hence you can see that my skirt, shoes, and bag are all in the same hue! But of course I wanted a pop of bright pink to go with the neutral colors. Yes, I already thought of this outfit for days, no weeks, and I have been searching for the perfect pink top! Once upon a weekday I found it on SM. It was not on sale though but it was a great buy cause I did not have to pay for it! HAHA  (Thank you Lolo and Lola).

These shoes were on 50% off when I saw them, I tried them on and fell in love. I knew I had to buy it but it was the pair on display meaning it has been tried on quite a number of times, and there was no more stock left for my size (5). See this is one of the reasons why I can’t buy any good shoes because once I like something, it is usually too worn out to be bought and stores don’t usually keep another pair of size 5 shoes! Despite my OC tendencies, I bought the pair and couldn’t be any happier!

Let’s talk about this bag for moment. It is stylish, sturdy, and you can basically shove all of your stuff inside. I even put my paperworks in there together with my make up bag, planner, and my other purchases.

Lastly, the skirt I’m wearing is only 250 pesos. Yes 250 pesos. When I read that this shop sold midi skirts for that price I knew I had to buy two! As you know, I personally prefer wearing midi/full circle skirts because it’s length are longer than skater skirts and I am on my road to modesty so I said goodbye to my skater skirts and said hello to midi skirts! So if you’re looking for midi skirts at a very reasonable price, then click on below to see where you can get them!

Let me know if you like this ensemble!
