The Perfect Sweater for Winter

I have lived in the southern United States all of my life. Thankfully, the state I live in doesn’t usually experience much harsh, cold weather during the winter months; however, I do need to bundle up in something warm when heading outside from time to time. Oftentimes, I reach for my favorite sweater. The versatile sweater I’m referring to is a leopard print, cashmere cardigan. I absolutely love the way cashmere feels against my skin. I adore this soft sweater because I can wear it to the grocery store, to church, to the movies, or even to a holiday gathering. On this blog, I hope you will discover the winter clothing staples that look great with any type of outfit. Enjoy!

Growth Spurts Making It Difficult To Keep Kids Modest? 3 Tips To Keep Them Covered

Did you just buy your kids new clothes only to have them go through a growth spurt a few days later? Now the dresses and shorts that used to be the perfect length are now extremely short. You want your kids to dress modestly but you can't afford to go buy new clothing each time they go through a growth spurt.

Don't despair. You don't have to throw their clothes away and start over. There are some quick and easy ways tricks that will help you keep your kids dressed modestly even after they're latest growth spurt. Take a look at these tips that will help you keep your kids covered.

Extend the Hem

Remember the days when having your slip show caused embarrassment? Not anymore. Now you can use a slip to extend the length of your kid's dresses and skirts. Many slips now come with ruffled edges, which can add a bit of flair to dresses and skirts. In fact, adding slips of coordinating colors will allow your child to change up their wardrobe just by changing their slip.

If you can't find slips that have ruffles, you can add your own. Simply purchase several slips and add your own lace to the bottom edges. This will allow you coordinate the slips to your child's wardrobe.

Layer Your Shorts

You bought several pairs of knee-length shorts for your kids. Unfortunately, after the growth-spurt they look more like "booty shorts." Don't throw the shorts away. All you have to do is add a pair of knee-length leggings under the shorts to extend the hem. Another fun way to extend the life of shorts is to sew a layer of lace or material around each leg of the too-short shorts.

Go Vintage

Don't want to spend full-price on clothing that you're going to have to modify just to make sure it's modest? That's where thrift shops come in handy. Vintage clothing is a great way to keep your kids modest, especially when you're looking for modest dresses and skirts. 

Today's fashions call for hemlines that are well above the knee. However, most vintage fashions have hemlines that are below the knee, which is where you want them to fall for modesty.

You want your kids to dress modestly. That's difficult to do when your kids keep growing each time you buy them new clothes. These simple solutions will help you keep your kids modest.
