Fashion Show: Modest = Easy & Stylish

Especially in the wintertime! Drawing inspiration from the freezing weather and Sundance catalog, this outfit features a chunky knit teal sweater (aunt's hand-me-down, more jewel-toned in person), my favorite winter skirt - a purple/burgundy/nuetralish cord from the Sundance Outlet, textured tights and BareTraps clogs (I still can't get over their cute buckles!).  Peculiar expression spur of the moment. 
While we're on the subject, I knew there was a good reason I'd been taking pics (or asking Laura to) of more interesting outfits lately! Here are some from earlier this year:
Cool brown linen drawstring skirt for summer (J. Crew), striped blouse (BITTEN), super comfy sandals, and a wide headband for color.Trying to figure out someway to wear a bucket hat...warm eyelet tee (Sundance Outlet), wool tweed skirt, belt, tights and those clogs again. Also, Ben Franklin's auto-biography makes for a great accessory. :)
Most unusual combo of the year. ;) I was...inspired? Teal tee (AE), striped blouse worn jacket-style, grey corduroy skirt and more yummy tights.

I do wear pants too - skirts just seem to be the most fun to rearrange in outfits! Modesty is so easily attained. I have piles of catalog and magazine cutouts that demonstrate this - even some that are frum and still super cute! 

Now, go to LikeAWarmCupOfCoffee and see all the other outfits!

Where do you find awesome skirts like that Sara? I have a few cool ones, but can't seem to find any lately. I can't seem to find any clothes that fit my "style" either. Are there particular stores that you usually find stuff?

Oooooh! I LOVE the hat and that whole outfit in the hat photo (sorry the hat distracted me!). I love hats but can never find classy hats that I like. Where did you find that one?

Thank you for the comments - they are truly a delight to receive. You and your sister's blogs are such pleasant places to be, very inspirational. Your clothing style is lovely! I really like how your secretary desk turned out, it would be fun to do that sometime . . . that is if I find a desk that I can do it to. ;)
