Hope y’alls Easter was as fabulous as Tennessee’s! Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! I have heard that over and over today, but it just penetrates my soul deeper every time.

 I bought this dress back in December for $15 at JCPenny’s. It had a weird neckline, but it was too good to pass up. A maxi dress that’s actually modest *and* flattering? I knew I’d figure out a way to fix it. Came with the belt, too!

 I finally was  motivated enough last night to fix it, so I wore it for church this morning. It’s super sheer, but it has a nice underslip.

Dress: JCPenny’s
Hat: Target
Boots: Shoe Carnival
Pearls: Great grandmother

 The neckline used to be really open and wide, so I made it lace up the front, and it fixed it quite nicely. πŸ™‚ I also took in about 2″ below the arms because they were really open.

This afternoon I changed into this outfit to hang out at our pastor’s house watching volleyball games, napping, and watching a dramatic presentation called “St John in Exile”. 

 I LOVE THIS SHIRT. I’ve wanted something like this for a looong time, and I was getting discouraged about not having any nice shirts to wear (ours are wearing out fast). Lo and behold we get a package in the mail from Mema with this and a bunch of other nice shirts. Yay grandma!! πŸ˜€

“You know you have a hole in the back of your shirt? You should stay against a wall.” ~Guy friend being sarcastic πŸ˜›

This shirt has an awesome slit in the back. It’s just super different and I love it, plus it lets me have fun with all those different tanks I bought at Walmart. πŸ™‚ Have a great day, y’all! I’m exhausted.

  2. That dress is great! I love really long dresses, and am glad they are slowly starting to get into fashion. What do you mean about lacing up the neckline? Did you make the slit and everthing? because I noticed that the lace was mad out of the same fabric as the dress. Great outfit!~Dollshorses

  3. Two classic things I love to see. Dressing extra special, without putting on airs, but to show the Lord He's worth it, for church, and helping lift our casual to feminine and modest.

  4. Gorgeous outfits! Love the dress especially. I know how hard it is to find modest maxi dresses. πŸ˜€ I had a wonderful Easter, glad you did too!

  5. Great outfits! I just love that you are modest and fashionable! I've always believed you can do both, and you prove it. πŸ˜‰ I appreciate your testimony and pray God uses you tremendously, especially amongst the young ladies.

  6. Hi! I am a new follower of your blog. Your dress was so pretty, and your skirt and shirt was so cute! I have never really been into long skirts, but they look really good on you.

  7. just found you through a pinterest pin! (gotta love it) and i was wondering about your skirt. did you make it or buy it? is it in the post and i just missed it? i have such a hard time finding long skirts that actually go a little past my ankles (i prefer my skirts to not fall 2 inches above my foot unless i am wearing boots). so i was wondering if you made it or bought it somewhere! thanks!

  8. Awkward commenting over a year after this was posted, LOL – but do you have any idea how I could fix the neckline of a peasant shirt like you did to the dress? It also ties in the front with strings but that doesn't keep it from constantly slipping off my shoulders. Love your blog btw!

    1. Hey! Sorry it has taken so long to reply. I've fixed a wayward peasant shirt by sewing a casing with seam binding into the neckline and putting elastic in it, or you could do a drawstring. This dress was kind of unique because the neckline was a funny shape. Hope that helps!
