Wear a kimono this summer

Add a Kimono to your outfits this summer

OoohKay ๐Ÿ™‚

It's been a while since I wrote some yummy faith and/or modest related posts... I've been itching to get back to writing so badly as articles have been percolating in my head. I rushed this past weekend to get my office and our living room set up! (But that's my next post so ... watch for it ..) ๐Ÿ™‚

Did you read all the way to the end of my last post for my surprise? ... did you read it? If you didn't - you cheated!! Haha ๐Ÿ˜‰

I had announced my new Amazon Store that I put together for you... with some modest clothing options for you!

And I wanted to introduce you to another fashion item I've fallen in love with this year. I couldn't wait to share with you because well, ladies... this can make your modest outfits up a notch or two!!!

Remember when I wrote in my last post I said most blah outfit problems are because the outfit is not complete until you get all your accessories on too. (you can read that whole post here Anatomy of an Outfit)

Kimonos are

  • soo summery, <insert dreamy face here>
  • act as an accessory making your outfit look complete and I dare say.... wait for it...
  • they help make your outfits CASUAL.

A common complaint from those that wear dresses and skirts all the time. "I always feel "dressed up". Do you feel this too?

Introducing KIMONOS

Kimono outfits


Here is one of my first ones - so colorful and loose - makes me feel like I'm living down south... haha ๐Ÿ™‚ And now you can get this one right here.

Here's another one - can never go wrong with " the blues" -ย  Liam insisted we have a photo together here so I'm wearing this kimono with my stretch denim skirt from New creation Apparel and a white t-shirt from Pennington's. And YAY - You can get this Kimono here in my Amazon store.

And here it is again with my sleeveless dress I've been loving this summer. (With my enlarged liver some days my stomach is sensitive to tight clothing.) I'm hoping to make a pattern from this dress this summer? You can get this Kimono here.

This one is actually a shirt from Walmart made from chiffon that I wore as a kimono or jacket... it's so light and airy for summer and I'm in love with things that flutter in the breeze. I've paired it with a Lane Bryant lime colored tank and my stretch denim skirt from New Creation Apparel.

This outfit I'm wearing a denim skirt from Cotton Ginny with a Giant Tiger extra soft heathered pink shirt and this Kimono from Additionelle that is so light and airy one of the first I got last year.

This one is a really Special one - all made from lace ! This navy jacket drapes so nicely as you can see. It's a little warmer than the other kimonos and I have one in White and Navy both from Wish (for only $6 !) yes $6 Here I paired it with a Lularoe perfect tee and a stretch denim skirt from New Creation Apparel.

Lastly this kimono type jacket is from Ardene and I picked it up just for fun hoping it might fit. (Ardene is not plus sized!) But it worked great and was a perfect color to go with denim! I'm wearing it here with my stretch denim skirt from New Creation Apparel and a v-neck T-shirt from Pennington's.

So what do you think? Are you ready to add this fashion statement to your modest wardrobe?

Hit reply and send me your pictures !!

With MUCH love

Praise Him with the Walls of your House!

Praise HIM with the walls of your house <love>


Boy I have a lot of catching up to do with you ...ย  sigh

So let's begin...Before we got our painting started this was our clean palette. A clean slate to get a fresh start. No sooner did we have the lights on in here we had two weeks of company. So that really threw us for a loop. Hahaย  ๐Ÿ™‚

But here I am standing at one of our windows wearing a blue Kimono from Additionelle with a shirt from Giant Tiger and a skirt from New Creation apparel. Keep reading below for a surprise !!

Writing scriptures

Have you ever praised God with your walls? There is something so tangible, so satisfying to write Gods praises on your walls. Before we painted I wrote scriptures and prayers on our walls in pencil. Here I'm wearing a Lularoe vest with a Walmart shift dress.

Praise God with your walls!

Mark His name in the foundation of your house

Just like He should be on the foundation of our souls.

I may have forgotten to show you how we wrote the names of Jesus + Mary +Joseph on the foundation of our house.. one name on each corner. <love> Now their names are permanently there to comfort us on the days ahead.

What would you want your walls to speak to God ?

How would you praise Him and show Him your love?
