On Getting Dressed:
I’m learning that mamas of many little ones have tired eyes, busy days, and full hearts. Tired eyes are just a part of it, and feeling scattered is beginning to feel a bit more normal than not, but one thing I can do that makes me feel a little more on top of things is to have carefully planned outfits that I feel are a good representation of who I am, what I believe, the people I love, and my heart.
Periodically on Abiding Woman I will post some of my favorite outfits to inspire ideas for dressing in a way that is feminine, modest, and practical for moms of littles. I have been so inspired by other moms who are normal ladies of all shapes and sizes and walks of life. Mom’s like me; not models, but real people who really wear the outfits they share. They are willing to get in front of the camera and give all of us a little inspiration for putting together lovely outfits and I so appreciate this!
I have pinned so many of these mamas in their outfits, and I’ve learned a ton from them. This is why I wanted to start posting a few of these on Abiding Woman, I find it helpful and I hope you do too! So be on the look out for more like this soon and I hope it becomes a fun part of this blog.
This whole outfit came from Target; watch, shoes, and all. Yay Target! Who doesn’t love target? (if your answer is no, then just don’t answer that… I don’t want to know… it would hurt my heart.) The dress is maternity and should last me the whole pregnancy. #score
4 things I love about this Target maternity dress:
- it comes to my knees (personal preference, but I don’t like my dresses and skirts any shorter than that)
- it’s black and white, so extremely versatile
- it’s sleeveless but comes up high on the chest and the tank top is wide and covers the back, so it can be worn without a cardi on those hot summer days.
- It’s form fitted to have a feminine touch, but not too much.
16 week bump. Baby number 5.
I can hardly believe that I’m going to be a mom to five sweet littles! I love it! (just had to throw that in there)
I have some thoughts on clothes… actually I have LOTS of thoughts on clothes, and I will likely share them as I can, but for today I’ll share a post that I wrote recently about how modesty is an act of love. I hope you will check it out and that your heart will be encouraged to love others with modest outfit choices.
Hope you have a great week!
