Hey y'all! Friends of Fresh Modesty is back! I hope you enjoy these outfits as much as I have!
If there is such a place where four-wheelers are driven on roads... roller coasters could be built in your own backyard...gravity is optional...everyone understood my obssession for owls...dogs could really be your best friends...coffee is served every morning...everyone appreciated the St. Louis Cardinals...or just baseball in general...and shoes, what are those? I totally want to be there!!!
scarf: gift from Aunt-It's from India

Here is a fabulous way to stretch your wardrobe-- a shirt (or two!) over a dress!Hi! My name is Ashleigh and I blog over at The Preppy Little Polka Dot (www.thepreppylittlepolkadot.
The outfit I am wearing is very casual and comfy. People who know me know I'm big on comfort. The outfit is actually a maxi dress with two shirts on over the top. The top of the dress is not very flattering, so I don't wear it very often. I was really glad to find that the entire outfit worked together. The outfit would probably work with a jean jacket as well.
I loved this pretty lady's shoes so much that they inspired me to look on Kmart.com for shoes... and I ended up getting the ones I wore with my navy lace dress. :) So, thanks, Caroline!
Y'all may remember me from a while ago when Olivia posted one of my outfits, but if not, let me introduce myself again: I'm Caroline. :-) I am so glad to be featured again for Friends of Fresh Modesty!
This is one of my all-time favorite dresses! The just-off-white and black have such beautiful contrast, especially with the double border/hem, and they are perfect to pair with some of my favorite dress shoes! The pearls blend with the colors seamlessly, while my ring ties in with the red in my shoes.
So, now for where I got everything:
Dress: Gift from Grandma. :-) She found it at JC Penney, on clearance!
Shoes: Kmart (clearance, too!)
Jewelry: Mostly gifts, like last time :-)
What are your favorite elements of each of these outfits? How do they inspire you?
I plan on continuing Friends of Fresh Modesty, but I'd like to take it in a slightly different direction. Instead of featuring four outfits a week, I'd like to do maybe one or two that really showcase the "art" of tasteful clothing design, as I spoke about in this post. I'd love to talk about each outfit a little bit more and encourage us all towards really thinking about why certain things work and why certain things don't. It sounds kind of intimidating, but let's challenge ourselves! I've been doing this occasionally as I get dressed and wow, it's a lot to think about! But, it's also really rewarding and has helped me refine my style.
But, I can't do this without y'all. If you have an outfit you believe does pretty well with the "principles", please submit it! I need to be inspired, too. :) Blessings on your weekend!
