For Your Weekend {modest is hottest edition}

modest is hottest {fashion over 40}

I’m all about some cute clothes … even if I can’t take a good selfie for anything. And I’m also all about some cute and modest clothes for my girl. Many of you loved this week’s post featuring Casiday’s adorable outfits so you can definitely expect more of that. In fact, we’re brainstorming a few ideas about mother/daughter styling.

And since this week has also had its fair share of stress and anxiety about social media, I thought I’d share some of the great resources I’ve found lately for dressing stylishly and modestly. I’m calling this week’s For Your Weekend the modest is hottest edition.  Enjoy!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this article from Grace for Moms!  An absolute must read from a stylist who has worked on movies like Moms Night Out and Grace Unplugged. 

I’m basically terrified about doing mix and match wrong and looking ridiculous. Images like this one from Everyday Savvy are SO helpful for fashion backward girls like me. And since these pieces are all from Target, it feels very doable.  I especially like this idea for building a good capsule wardrobe.

One of my favorite pinners is Deborah of Fabulous after 40. Her blog is full of great information and her Pinterest boards are amazing!!

And you should be following Cyndi Spivey and JoLynne Shane also … both of these women have incredible style and offer practical counsel for dressing in a way that is flattering and age-appropriate.

You may be wondering why in the world I’m sharing so much about clothes and appearance …. after all, this is supposed to be a blog offering you permission to live well. But here’s what I’m finding, taking care of myself is a huge part of living well.  That’s why I’m trying really hard to eat better and exercise more. And I want to be a good steward of what the Lord has given me — even the clothes in my closet.  Finding and wearing clothes that are well-made and flattering helps me not be distracted as much by all those pesky insecurities and doubts … and it keeps me from engaging in retail therapy near as often.

And let’s face it, we’ve got to get dressed … we may as well feel good about what we’re wearing! 🙂

Happy Saturday, y’all! If you need me I’ll be in my navy and orange cheering on the Auburn Tigers as they play Texas A & M.

War Eagle!

What is your favorite item in your closet??


Read the Psalms this summer with Scripture Dig!


  1. My favorite item in my closet is an olive green gauze dress. It is sleeveless so it is perfect for Sunday church or going out. It can be paired with a jacket for fall and a long sleeved shirt for winter
