Here's my church outfit from today. We came across this shirt while shopping at the Burlington Coat Factory, and the skirt is from "Sense." Its hard to find cute modest shirts, and it usually takes a lot of digging, but they're definitely worth the money when you find one! The name brand on this one is Jones New York.

Today was in the high 80's, so after morning chores we spent the rest of the afternoon at the beach. I sat and studied while the children swam and we had BBQ outside for dinner so here's my hot day/beach dress: Mom and Dad found this at the PX (Postal Exchange) which is a store only for soldiers and their families, but the name brand is "Derek Heart" which is also sold at Sears and Ross. My flip-flops are from Wal-Mart and they are so comfy and the flowers are so cute!

Today was a normal clean the house, cook meals, and study day, and after dinner I dropped my brother Stephen off at his Fencing class. Here's my typical Monday outfit: Denim skirt from Christopher & Banks, Shirt from Old Navy, and Sandals from Payless. The problem I've found with C&B skirts is that their smallest size is a 4, so if you wear a smaller size they tend to sit really low on the hips and you just have to make sure that you can find a shirt long enough to cover everything. Old Navy's shirts usually do the job nicely.
Here's my church outfit: I just found this shirt at Ross in the Juniors section and love wearing it! The white collar and bottom edge are sewn on so it gives the appearance of a layered shirt without being bulky. The skirt is from a friend of mine so I'm not sure where it was purchased but the name brand is "Sense."
At our house, unless we have a family trip planned, Saturdays are spent giving the house a thourough scrubbing, reorganizing everything from top to bottom, laying out church clothes, and making sure the yard is beautiful. Here's my cleaning outfit from Saturday, my mom found the skirt at Wal-Mart in the misses section, and I believe the shirt was a thrift shop find. I wouldn't go out in public (except camping) in this outfit but it works great for house cleaning! :)
