Modest Monday: A Dress Review!

exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!

it's been so long since I have been able to write a post...goodness guys! I had a bit of unexpected time of (read 8 weeks) where I was stuck in Canada waiting and waiting and waiting for my final paperwork to get processed...such a long and eventful story that I will share later.

For now... I was contacted shortly after I arrived home by Liz from Cleo Madison about doing a review for them. I was very excited and of course I said "yes!"  😊

I have never ordered from them before so I was curious to check them out. One more modest dress company?! YES PLEASE!!!

Liz sent me several options to choose from...the Gemma Floral Pocket Dress was a dress I had seen online and it caught my eye every time but yet I never could commit. When this dress showed up as an option I knew I just had to try it! 😀

You can do so many things with these dresses....I decided to try it with a white jean vest and it is definitely an outfit I would choose again.

The material is so soft and comfortable but I would say that the sizing runs small....I ordered a medium and could easily have worn a large for a more relaxed fit. I am a bit long-waisted and I like my dresses to be a little roomier than this one ended up being for me.

I would wear this dress with my converse sneakers or with heels...a sweet wedged sandal would look super cute also!😍

 I fell in love after I put it on for the first time! I was a little hesitant and could not commit I think because of the colour and floral pattern...but just let me assure you, it is gorgeous!

As you can see it fits me very well...I would definitely size up on this one ladies! but otherwise you will not be disappointed. My girls will love to steal this one from my closet! 😉

I kept the styling simple but if I had a long pink/blush cardigan I would love pairing that with it also...and don't forget this dress has pockets which is always handy for me for carrying my chapstick everywhere I go 😉

This dress was a hit with me and my girls!

Thank-you Liz and Cleo Madison for the opportunity to review one of your gorgeous pieces and ladies...go check them out...they have some pretty cute stuff!! 😍

 Some things that caught my eye this week and another round of questions! 👀

#1. Anywhere in the world?  I guess my dream vacation would be touring castles in England...then hopping over to mainland Europe to visit every historic site that I could find 😏

How about this super fun dress for July 4th? it comes in 3 different options!

#2. Favourite subject in school? mmmmmm History (no surprise there!) and French 💕

#3. Pepsi or Coke? (why is this such an important question is my question!?) Pepsi!!!

love these super fun t-shirts!

#4. Who inspires you the most? Elisabeth Elliot 😍 she challenges me....she encourages me....she inspires me! I essentially want to be her when I grow up! 😉

#5. Least favourite household chore? (all of them!? 😉😏) sorting dirty laundry...ewwwwwa!

#6. First kiss? a dare...on the sliding hill behind our school....I was 7...he was 8...I married him. 😘

I love these shoes...I believe Neesees Dresses sells them...not sure I could pull them off but they look super fun!

#7. Beach, city, country? I am a country girl through and through....give me a big old house, a huge garden, some chickens and baby goats, 6 dogs, a fat little pony and cart, a couple of horses and lots of flower gardens!!! but a beach would be my vacation plan! 😉

#8. Song I could listen to nonstop? well currently there are two (but since I love music it changes up quite a bit 😏)  "My Hope is Jesus" and "In God We Trust"....tomorrow it could change! 💕

#9. Like your mom or dad? mmmmmmm I don't really see my mom and I as sharing too many similarities as she likes bright colours and wanted a girly girl ( I most definitely was NOT! and only would wear navy blue 😂)physically we both have dark hair and we may share a few character qualities (thanks mom! 😁😉😂)....and I don't really know my dad as I met him only once 😜

was able to order these for my 2 youngest for Easter! 💕

#10.  Morning person or night person? Night owl!!!! if mornings did not start until 10 I would be a morning person 😏

phew! if you made it to here CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

see you next week!

Modest Monday

We had a great Palm Sunday and the weather was absolutely gorgeous with promises of hot summer days still to come!

It was extremely windy and when my daughter and I went out to take some pics most of them were of us holding down our dresses or lost in blowing hair! 💨😉

 This daughter of mine is just a joy to be with... she has grown from this scrawny little 6 pounder to just about one inch shy of me and wearing my clothes! 😝 Hearing her sing for the Lord and being able to serve with her has always been the deepest desire of my heart and I thank the Lord for music!😍

She challenges and encourages me in many ways every day...I love the above picture as it just seems to capture our relationship...we talk and chatter and laugh and discuss 24/7!

 Don't get me wrong...we have our moments! 😬 in personality she is much like her father...outgoing and happy-go-lucky!
Me...shy, anti-social and not so much happy-go-lucky! 😏

But I guess the Lord knew what I needed!

I love you Margie-girl and I am so very proud of you!

Thanks for letting me sing with you!

This week I have basically been drooling over the new dresses at Neesees Dresses....they run out of sizes pretty quick so hop on over and find a gorgeous Easter dress!!

Since I have a few new followers I thought it might be fun to answer a few "about me" questions as I share some of the things on my wish list this week!

Love this cute dress!!! however currently it is only available in large...

1. What did you want to be when you were a kid?  doctor...still do! :) but now I'm leaning toward EMT 😏

2. Do you like your name? no (sorry Mom!!) never have....Heidi Ann....I feel like a little girl stuck in a book and I'll never come across as a mature intelligent lady! 😐 at least give me an "e" on the end of my middle name!! 😉

I wanted this dress for Easter but...none in my size! :(

3. Are you a messy or clean person? both??  I am OCD and a perfectionist....yet my desk and my room usually would be classified as "organized chaos"  😂

4. How tall are you?  mmmmm 5 feet 4 inches and maybe just a pinch more!

5. What is my guilty pleasure?......just one?? chocolate...Pringles (sour cream)

super cute!!! for this summer!!
 6. Extrovert/Introvert?  since I basically score about 98%-100% on all introvert quizzes...that's pretty much me... hermit introvert!!

7. How would I describe my style? mmmmmm...classic, elegant boyish? at least that's what I       like...not sure maybe y'all should let me know!!

8. Hair colour? black....with more and more silver streaks 😩

another cute patootie dress!
9. Dream job? modest fashion business owner 😍

10. Dogs/cats? dogs all the way...Golden Retrievers!!!

my Easter dress!!!
Hope you enjoyed!

See you next week!

Modest Monday

It seems like life is getting really busy these days...I'm not sure why exactly except that we have a lot of appointments coming up 😐

It is always always nice to have Sunday...I cherish Sundays...that quiet day set aside from every other day of the week to refocus our minds on what is truly important, to grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ and to rest from all our labor!

 just a quick simple Sunday outfit...I believe my mouth may or may not have been full of M&M's 😋😏

This is the floral baseball tee from Neesees is a swing dress. I am still on the fence with swing dresses mainly because they bring me back to those baby days 😉...I really love them on others but maybe I need to go a size smaller so there isn't so much "flowiness"...however I can fix these with my sewing machine to pull it in a bit more so I am not too concerned about it! I am also not completely sold on the length of these dresses as they cut me off and make me look stumpy 😂 in my opinion...

 I love the pretty pink on black...and this dress has striped sleeves! 😍 it will be fun to dress it down this summer with a jean vest or jacket and maybe converses!

My puppy loves the candy in my hand...hence the sitting and the staring!! 😘

Have a great week!
