New York & Company/ I.N. Studio

New York & Company is one of my new favorite places to shop. While they tend to be quite pricey, they have good sales and a good amount of their shirts can be classified as modest while still being fashionable. This peach shirt is from there and the material is light and cool, but still thick enough around the top and middle to resist being transparent. The only problem is that black shines through (as you can see with the skirt) but as long as you wear white on top you have good coverage.

My skirt is from I.N. Studio and was from my cousin. I haven't seen anything else on their website that would qualify as modest, but as with most clothing companies you can find something wearable every once in a while.

Spring Outfit Mix and Match

Spring arrived with all of it's floral glory quite a few weeks ago, and I'm just now finding the time to make a post on spring outfits. I recently found two shirts that I've been able to mix and match with my casual and church clothes.
This first peach shirt is from a brand name called "Timing" and was found at Gabriel Brothers. My skirt is from Style J and was posted on here last year when I first purchased it.
This second shirt was found at Ross and is from "Cotton Express." While it looks like nothing more than a basic white dress shirt the thing I liked about it most was that it isn't transparent and you don't have to layer on the somewhat bulky undershirts to keep everything covered.

Here is a combination of both outfits. The frills on the front and the scrunched sleeves make it dressy enough to match my church skirts, and the cotton material goes well with my casual clothes.
~Happy Spring!~
