Fun and Modest

modest and colorful

Bloggers: Ever feel like you've used up every possible title when creating your posts?
When I'm running low on creative juices I sometimes ask my cousins and friends for help naming my outfit posts. I got lots of feedback for this one, including something with the word "prints," A La Boheme, contemporary, and something with the word "perfect." I almost went with Complementary Crazy... because blue and yellow are complementary colors, and leopard on leopard might be a little crazy for some people. Lol... But I didn't think that was so great.

I paid full price for this fun little clutch bag from Francesca's and the crystal stone bracelet from Benevolent Jewels, but they're both on sale now! I absolutely love this bracelet-- I find myself using it all the time, by day or night. I love that you can wear it with just about any color in your outfit, and with other bracelets too.

So in the end I went with something simple, "Fun and Modest." It's what I think of when I look at this outfit. A lot of people equate "modest" with "religious." I sure do, actually. But I'm an atheist who loves modest fashion! Maybe it was my Catholic school upbringing, maybe it's because modest clothing conceals perceived body defects, or maybe it's just because more clothing = more fabric and more ways to make a statement. Of course, I feel comfortable wearing more revealing outfits too (like here or here), but generally I like to cover the boob and butt/thigh area, or if I'm showing one thing I'll hide the other. Here I went for more of a full-on Duggar girl look, with the maxi and the cardigan and all. Though I don't know if they'd go this bright! Maybe Jessa would. Yes, I watch their show. Say what you want about them, but I like many of the outfits they wear! Particularly the maxi/cardigan combos, of course. ;)

P.S. I want to thank everyone who linked up their work outfits in the first ever Work Style Wednesday linkup! Martha and I hope you'll come back each Wednesday and join the linkup! I'll be looking at all of your posts tomorrow night. :)
