Red, White And Blue – A Modest Outfit Post

I’m usually not a red, white and blue type of girl.  It’s a fine color combination and all three are on my “color palette”, but I have never been particularly fond of them.  However I do kind of like this outfit 🙂

I do most of my shopping for clothing at thrift stores.  I like to find skirts and tops for a dollar each.  Unfortunately that isn’t always a feasible option.  I guess spending money on clothes is a necessary evil, so sometimes you just have to grin and bear it!  This outfit cost about $37, not including my sandals.  Shoes can also be an expensive necessity!  These were about $30.

My skirt came from Catos.  I have heard a lot of people recommend it as a great store for finding modest clothing.  I wouldn’t go that far but it is possible to find some nice things there.  The skirt was $20.  The fabric is rayon and it’s nice and lightweight for summer!

My sandals were on the clearance rack at the local French’s Boots & Shoes.  I normally try to have black or brown sandals so that they will match anything, but when I realized how much of my closet contains navy blue clothing, I decided these would be a good investment!

My red cami also came from Catos – it was $8.  It is hard for me to find camis with a high enough neckline (some actually provide more coverage if worn backward!) so I was very pleasantly surprised with this one!  I also like that there are other colors to choose from, so I’m sure I’ll be back for more once my budget allows!

The cardigan actually belongs to my sister Sarah – it is a Rayon Short Sleeves Flyaway Cardigan  from Amazon and it was $5.50!  There are multiple colors/sizes available!  I borrowed this from her for the outfit but I’m going to order one for myself.

My necklace was a gift from my father for my 16th birthday.  You can’t see it well in the picture but it’s a replica of the high priest’s breastplate and he brought it back from Israel for me 🙂

My tichel is one that we stock at Hannah’s Headcoverings, although unfortunately we happen to be out of stock right now.  I guess that means it’s time for another trip to Israel! 😉

I’m wearing the flexi-clip Felicity and it’s one of my new favorites.  It’s actually a more brilliant blue than how it looks in the picture.  It is also a limited release item so if you want one, don’t wait too long ’cause we don’t know how long they will last!  And I forgot to calculate the price of the flexi-clip into the mix.  A size large (what I’m wearing) is $21, although I only paid $14.70 because of the consultant discount 🙂

Sarah has been on a twin kick lately!  You may have seen her post last week, with pictures of her and Abigail’s matching outfits.  Once I put together this outfit, she liked it so much that she went and bought the same skirt and cami!  She’s borrowing Abigail’s navy blue blouse in this picture, since I’m still wearing her cardigan!  I guess I should get the amazon order placed so that we can really match 🙂

  3. Hi Hannah,
    I absolutely love your skirt! And I love how high neck that red shirt is. The blue shawl looks fabulous with the skirt and shirt. I LOVE your outfit! 😀

    Love,
    Ashley

  4. You girls are adorable! I love the “twin” idea, too! My sister and I sometimes do that. I went thrift shopping the other day and found a peasant blouse it loved, but it was low-cut, so I started looking for a cami to go under. I did find one but, like you, will have to wear it backwards, which is fine, The top fourth of the back is tight-knit lace and pretty, so wearing it backwards will do nicely! Love the outfits! I’m like you about red, white and blue…not my favorite combinations, either, but I have been known to wear them on occasion 😉

  5. I’ve never really liked the red white and blue combo but you girls pulled it off so nicely! Definitely changed my opinion of it!
