Here’s what I wore for the first full week of the Modest Young Women December Fashion Challenge. If you want to follow along with the challenge you use the hashtag #MYWDecemberFashionChallenge. Side note: is it proper “internet-speak” to actually write out the word HASHTAG? Or is it redundant to write it out, then use the symbol? Honestly, I still see the symbol (#) as the number sign or pound key!
December 2 was “something blue” so I chose a denim vest. Typically, blue is not a colour I wear often, since I really don’t care for it. I like this outfit though, but it was a bit impractical for cold weather!
December 3 was “cozy and warm”, and it fell on the day I was doing something with my youth group students. Sine the activity was Christmas related I decided to wear my Christmas sweater, which made an appearance in my earlier post. My mom decorated this sweater for me years ago for an ugly sweater party (back before you could just buy an ugly sweater brand new), but nobody thought it was ugly. To this day, people still say it’s such a nice sweater!
It has been a while since I shared this hair style, but since I am so fond of it, I did a half up Dutch braid and secured it with a flexi clip. I used the smallest size of the poinsettia style clip, but it is not going to be able to hold my hair for much longer! It was quite the struggle to get it secured around the end of my braid, but I can still wear it in other hair styles.
The next day’s theme was “scarf”, so this is what I wore to church. I’ve had this scarf for about eight years and it remains a favourite.
I skipped photos on December 5 and 6 for some reason (I can’t remember why!), but here is what I wore for Wednesday. The theme was merry and bright, so I wore an outfit that makes me merry. Again, I am wearing my green scarf!
Up next was “secondhand style”, and everything I wore was thrifted. I did a morning shift at the library on Thursday, and then did some errands and chores, and this outfit worked for everything!
Last week I shared a photo of my vintage inspired hairstyle on Instagram and am now sharing the back view. It was quite easy to do, and is done similar to the style shown in this video. I simply rolled a large chunk of my hair back from my forehead, along my hairline above my ears, and then pinned it against my scalp. Then I did the same on the other side and hid the pins with a flexi clip (in the video I did the rolls closer to the crown of my head, but for this particular style I kept the roll lower). Admittedly, it looked better when I first styled it, but this was taken at the end of the day after I’d been outside in the wind!
That’s all for today. Enjoy your weekend!
