Hi! My name is Ashleigh and I blog over at The Preppy Little Polka Dot (www.thepreppylittlepolkadot.blogspot.com). As you can tell from the title, I love preppy fashions, be they casual or dressy. I also like to share sewing projects and ways to fix ugly, outdated, and clothes that don’t fit. I love writing, baking, taking photographs, running, blogging, sewing, and crafting. I also love working with younger children. I feature a post on my blog every week detailing the outfit I wore to my Tuesday Teaching job, where I read Bible stories to 2-4 years olds in our church nursery. That’s me in a very big nutshell. Also, a huge thank-you to Olivia for featuring me on her blog!
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.
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!
