Whether this wintry weather is making you realize that you don’t have enough warm clothes or that spring is coming soon, it’s time for ALAMODEST to host another giveaway!
AMI Clubwear is giving away a $50 gift card to buy ANYTHING from their store! Since their prices are mostly under $50, I’d say that’s most things on their website! Although AMI Clubwear has “clubbing” type clothing, you’ll be surprised at the selection of non-clubwear. I posted photos of some cute things I found on their website above.
Before the clothing police knock on my door, I do want to point out that I am at home in these photos. This is pretty much what I wear, my stijl around the house during the winter: A cozy baggy sweater, leggings, and butt/back coverage, which in this case is a skirt. I wear leggings a lot while at home, because this is where I do most of my stretches and relaxation.
Thought I would share some random behind the scenes from my outfit post not too long ago and some other photos from the holidays. I don’t take photos much outside this blog, and I really should! The best moments in life however are the ones not caught on camera. Meet our two white fluffy dogs, Missy and Patty. The playground in the background is not for the dogs. It’s for our nephews and nieces when they come over. We don’t spoil our dogs that much! They love being on the grass and doing what most dogs like to do—eat, walk around, love on you, and poop.
Contrary to what you might think based on what you see on À LA MODEST, I actually wear jeans and sneakers a lot. I was never really a jeans-and-sneakers kind of person in the past. Being a girl who likes to move a lot now, it’s necessary to wear comfortable clothes. I like wearing statement coats and scarves on top of casual clothes, just to mask the whole laid back and lazy look with something more put together.
Winter is a time when many of us are feeling sad and lonely, regardless of circumstance. I find myself feeling most vulnerable on winter nights—the combination of cold weather and early darkness just tears me down. I am mostly introverted, but when the sun goes down, I am often needing and wanting company.
