Hi, I'm Elisa (21) and these are my 15 year old sisters Faith and Hope. I enjoy my job at Homestead Farms, doing everything from managing the kitchen and waiting on customers to working in the greenhouses and fields. When I'm not at work I like to read, run, bake, sew, browse blogs and FB, and take long walks w/my sisters and friends. The twins have recently started helping out at the farm and keep busy trying to balance work, 11th grade homeschooling, and playing on the varsity volleyball team at the local high school. When they get a chance they love to draw, (they're great artists) read, spend time with friends, and play more volleyball just for fun.
The fitted skirt helps balance the more flowy top

I like this outfit because it's super comfy and feels pretty. The flowy skirt is kept from being frumpy by paring it with fitted top and the neutral tones of the skirt and shirt keep the bright sweater from looking too young.

Hi there readers of Fresh Modesty!
My name is Charlotte Boyer, and I blog over at my family's online journal The Boyer Family Singers. Over there, I am known as "The Little Whispering Birdy".
I am an avid graphic/web designer in training, I adore vintage fashion, am a homemaker in training, LOVE sewing my own clothes (however, I am not sporting any of mine in this outfit), sing with my sisters, and strive to glorify God in all that I do (including the way I dress.) I am the youngest of three sisters, and we all love dressing fashionably, though modestly.
My type of style is bright colors, vintage silhouettes (1910s- early 60s), and little details, making the whole outfit "pop". I incorporated all those features into my outfit-
Blouse: Thrifted (I rolled up the cuffs to show the bright print)
Shoes: Thrifted (wow, a lot of thrifted things today!) ;)
I put on the outfit, thinking that it looked nothing like a vintage silhouette; when suddenly I realized, "Hey, this is sooo 1910s!" The high waisted skirt + the belt right in the middle + the blouse + loafers = late 1910s! :) (of course it helps to have a sister who is so into this type of stuff, so that she can help you find just the right era to which your outfit belongs!) ;)
I'm actually wearing one of my least favorite skirts, but when I picked out this ensemble, I found a way to wear it in which I like- no - love sporting it! :D
