A Day in the Life Too... a blog about modest style

A 30-something mom's blog about modest style, DIY stuff, and limiting dessert. Just kidding. We eat dessert first around here.

a riveting lesson on domestic life...

Say what you will about any of these ensembles, but I've successfully -- wildly successfully, if I may say so -- made dinner (from scratch! with only one stovetop fire!) for my family every day while wearing them. Which means that for the next 5 days, I'm free to throw domesticity to the wind and order pizza every night.

Kidding. That would be totally unhealthy. What kind of mother/wife do you take me for? Tuesday I'll order wings instead...

Hi!

I was curious, so I had to come around and have a look ;-)

I love your idea to impersonate the numbers! I'm not brave enough for something like this myself, but it's definitely fun to watch and it looks like it was fun to do, too.

So far, my favourites among your 30 for 30 outfits are number 8 and 10. I love green with black, green with brown and green with white - and you have all of this in one outfit. The skirt looks great with that underskirt peeking out. I also like the fabric flower a lot that you've pinned to your blazer.

Kind regards,
Ilona

Haha! You SO have permission to order in for the weekend! Your 30 for 30 outfits are awesome!

It's supposed to be 30 here today. Heat wave! My swimsuit is crawling its way out of my dresser drawers.

LOL! You are so funny. Last night I tried my hardest to convince the hubby that we should go out to eat. he wasn't buying it. Fine!!! I actually rather enjoyed the meal I made, but it was like pulling teeth.

Okay, so I'm 3 outfits behind. I need to get it together! Lol.. I work from home, sooooo sometimes I just don't get dressed. Since I didn't include snowflake printed pj's in my 30 items, I decided that I probably shouldnt take pictures. LOL!

I love the white dress for "pre-spring"... Woohoo! We are almost there! Bring on the pollen :)

This post made me laugh! Way to look so stinkin' stylish while being uber domestic. I'm impressed.

Leaving the House in THIS?!?!

Love your blog! It's so fun to see a modest take on the 30 for 30- I usually think "oh, it's nice on them, but I can't do that hem!" It's nice to see what's possible for nice modest fashion!

I love your looks! The shoes! The shoes!

Mindy Webb said...

You are looking fabulous!! What I love: the orange necklace and black slip in Day 10 (I gotta check out the slip shop), those brown boots, and my favorite is the leg warmers layered over jeans and tights--genius! I've gotta get myself some leg warmers.

I love 6 and 8 and especially 10. I just love that skirt :)

You are doing so great with 30 X 30. I'm losing steam already lol...

Ashley said...

Wow! Your looks are really great. I suck at this fashion thang. Thanks for some motivation!

6 & 9 are definite my favorites - what can I say, I'm a sucker for dresses & skirts.

How did you manage to make dinner in that white dress though? And do you wear shoes inside the house? In Japan [and all Asian homes], we take off our shoes so I'm sort of confused by your wearing of boots in front of the sofa and - God forbid - ON THE RUGGG!!

I love day 10! So cute!
