Modest 4th of July Outfits Lookbook!

Happy 240th Birthday America!

150 million hotdogs, 285 million pounds of fireworks, and $48 million will be spent by consumers shopping for anything, red, white and blue! (that would include me lol!)

Next to Christmas, 4th of July is my favorite holiday! I cannot explain exactly why, but it is!

Nothing is ever free, though to you it be.  Somewhere, Somehow, Someone paid.

American Liberty surely is great, Liberty in Christ is greater!

 

As I was reading through my devotions this morning it dawned on me that celebrating 4th of July as a Christian takes a whole new meaning on also being liberated from the bondage of sin.

Even though U.S citizens have freedom, ironically some are still held by the chains of their sins. Chains that can only be broken by placing one’s trust on Jesus Christ.

1 John 1:9

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

This white tulle skirt has been paired up with so many different types of looks! Seriously it pairs up with anything you throw at it! This is a great option for a fancy night out on the 4th!

Look #2: Stars & Stripes AND Anchors!

I cannot commence to explain why this is one of my favorite trends of all time!

The color navy this year has by far been my favorite color! (Sorry pink!) It is so classy and elegant, and the color combinations with navy are endless! Navy is the new black!

They recently sent me this GORGEOUS red striped midi skirt to review for you guys!

I already own their classic black and white striped midi skirt (still a fav!) and was dying to acquire a red and white one especially for a nautical inspired outfit!

This beautiful midi skirt is completely modest, has perfect pleats, and is made to last!

My outfit inspiration came from Pinterest from Rachel Parcell , whose style I adore!! I had the pleasure of meeting her and her sister Emily Jackson for the first time last year at the Sperry Event! She truly has a sweet spirit along with an amazing sense of style! (Lol don’t mind my Disney inspired outfit! I had a photoshoot that day and had no time to change!)

I realize this could be a great 4th of July outfit, but I couldn’t wait any longer to wear it!

My top was purchased second hand from Poshmark in a size XS, originally from Cynthia Rowley!

This top has a classy anchor print all over it, with three anchor printed buttons on the shoulders for a nice nautical detail!

And a white teardrop statement necklace to top it all off!

Navy, red, white, cognac, and anchors complete this preppy nautical outfit!

I would highly suggest to invest in these striped midi skirts from Taralynn’s Boutique!

You will have so many endless combinations with these skirts and the best part is that they are made with quality to last!

Well that time has come darlings where I have to say goodbye for now, but will be back tomorrow with more modest outfit inspirations for you girls!

God Bless!

XOXO,

I am obsessed how simple yet striking this dynamic duo is!
To give this outfit a more summer “boho” vibe I tied my shirt at my waist and double knotted it! Perfect for a hot summer day!

Modest Nautical Summer Outfit!

Happy Thursday Girlies!!

I hope you all had an amazing week so far!! I have been quite tired but I always look forward blog posts! I’m enjoying typing up this post outside on the patio but I might have to move my blog writing indoors since I can hear some thunder in the midst! (Nooo why?!)

Today’s post is all about……

ANCHORS!!!!

IMG_2514                           OH My! The obsession has struck again!!

I bought this gorgeous anchor print maxi skirt from Jane a couple of weeks ago and I finally got it in the mail 2 days ago!!

IMG_2509                           I couldn’t wait to wear it! Its perfect for those hot summer days! I love how modest and comfy this skirt is!

Literally like jammies!

I wore my infamous chambray shirt from DownEast Basics and a white teardrop necklace!

I love tieing my shirts in a knot when wearing maxi skirts because I love the shape it gives me! Plus it gives a more ”nautical” summer vibe!
IMG_2505

IMG_2504                     Well the rain is falling on my laptop which means its time to wrap it up!

(Not gunna lie, being outside in thunder makes me paranoid that I might get struck by lightning lol)

I may or may not have a shopping haul post coming soon 😉 (As in manana!)

Outfit Details:

Anchor Print Maxi Skirt: Very Jane

Chambray Shirt: Downeast Basics

Anchor Sandals: Claire’s

God Bless You!!
