À LA MODEST :: Conservative Indie Fashion Style Blogger - a la modest - a la mode st. - conservative indie style blog blogger

It’s always the few weeks before summer that get to me. The weather between spring and summer always goes from nice and breezy to suddenly scorching. It’s like microwaving coffee, where after you’ve warmed it up for just less than a minute, you’re fooled into thinking that your beverage is lukewarm, but in fact it’s boiling hot. My time-traveling agenda would be to somehow hibernate during the summer and fast-forward to fall. Alas, because I have priorities and a husband to attend to, I simply cannot live out this fantasy! I just have to be really smart about what materials to wear as a modest fashionista.

I bought this pretty thrifted yellow vest last weekend. I had to put something inside because it was too short for my torso, so I paired it with a backless and sleeveless shirt made with really light material to go inside. I had that shirt before I chose to really cover up (thus the intentional missing material on the back of the shirt!). I decided to keep it around for handy layering and also because the pattern was cool. I still have most of my clothes from the pre-à-la-Modest days because I knew that with a little creativity and modesty guidance, I could somehow still wear them wisely. I just have to remember to avoid succumbing to the temptation to wear them as is without any layering.

I will leave you with a little unintentional inspiration from The Beatles: “Here comes the sun, and I say, it’s all right!”

    I like that skirt.It’s simple but I’m looking for a skirt just like that.
    May I ask how old you are? I would have guessed you’re 18 or 19,but now you said you have a husband?That sounds interesting.

  9. Lisa

    oh,and I have to agree on what you said.I’m thinking just the same everyday: hibernating during the summer would be it.I never know what to wear,I feel umcomfortable in t-shirts and it’s so hot outside.Plus,my legs are not thin and bronzed enough to go out without tights& I would always be pulling my skirt down as I don’t want it to go up.

  10. Rachel @ a la Modest

    Hey Lisa, I am 23 years old :) I usually get mistaken for about that age! I think I bought that skirt at Ross for less than $10. Do you have that store over there?

  11. Rachel @ a la Modest

    Actually, I think I just recently discovered that I might be allergic to whatever is in the grass. I still wear knee high socks or tights during the summer. My legs aren’t that attractive as I would like them to be :-/

    Had the same thought ; that you were 16/17 years old so was surprised to read you’re married! Love the cheery yellow top.
