Modest Monday: Coffeeshop Comfy

Monday, January 7, 2013

Just joining the Modest Monday party? Here's the original post. Each Monday, I post a modest, stylish outfit that I wear along with some thoughts on modesty. 

Why? Because I believe you don't have to sacrifice fashion for purity. 
 Modesty does not equal frumpy. These are outfits I really, truly wear in my day-to-day life. I'm a girl determined to live a life of purity, modesty, and plenty of style. :)

Back to the coffeeshop today! I took my little sisters out for some girl time, and went for a comfortable and casual yet cute look. 

Shirt: Gap
Camisole: thrifted
Pants: Banana Republic (thrifted!)
Belt: Premier Jewelry
Purse: thrifted
Cardigan: Merona for Target (quality-looking brand for everyday price - love)
Nude flats: Lower East Side from Payless

Dark nails? Check. 
Detailed bag? Check. 
Cardigan for a rainy day? Check! 
I adore this shoes so. 
I picked them up on sale after Christmas: I've been wanting some glossy neutral flats that would go with anything. They've been all the rage lately, but I didn't want to shell out money for an expensive pair since I do so much walking. Also, despite my name, I am not the most graceful person in the world. ;) 

So I happily snatched up this pair when I found them on sale. Comfy, classic, and versatile, and inexpensive? Well worth the wait!

In addition to my purse, I toted along my laptop and planner in a messenger bag I made for a Theater Costume class I took at Baylor this fall. 

I chose bright Indian colors and mixed patterns for a cheery yoga bag feel. And it even has side pockets for an iPhone. 

Winter flavors!
Our trio of drinks: a frozen gingercreme mocha and hot chocolate for my sisters and a pumpkin cream cocoa latte for me. So, so good. Blissful happiness in a cup. 

And of course, a beanie to add to the hipster-ness. ;)

  1. You are so pretty and stylish and yes! graceful as well! I've thought about joining you... but then I see how awesome your outfits are, and I know I can't compete. But maybe... maybe I will ;-)

    1. Aw, you are so sweet, Amanda! Thank you! I am definitely not the perfect fashionable girl who has it all together...I go through five outfits sometimes before I settle on one I like - just like any girl! And then I have my days where I stay in yoga pants and a t-shirt. You should most certainly join me - I can't wait to see your outfits! :)xoxo

  2. Hey Grace!

    I love the color combo; it's perfect for weather like this! You are so pretty!

    Hope you have a wonderful New Year!


    1. Danke, Maria! You're too kind - thanks for saying hi. :) I hope you had a wonderful New Year's too, girlie!

  3. Awww- this is so cute! Modest mondays. :) Although, I only post Sundays and sometimes wednesdays and sometimes fridays. If I could have someone who had time to take outfit pics of me on command, that would help a lot, heheh.
