OOTD: Too Teal


What face am I even making here? 


One day, I will figure out how to pose for these pics!

Shirt: Old Navy
Skirt: Fashion Bug
Cardigan: Lane Bryant
Tights: Target
Headband: Target

 I wanted to flaunt a skirt one more time before it gets super cold. I’ll admit, I tend to hunker down in comfy jeans and oversized sweaters once the weather takes a turn. But I’m going to keep it stylish this year!

What do you do to keep warm with style?

I’ve been really trying to work on my manicure/nail art skills. Which means you get to see my interesting-yet-sometimes-horrific attempts. Lucky you!  I’m trying to stick to super simple stuff – stripes, polka dots, geometric designs, etc.

For this, I painted on the lightest color first, then (once it dried a bit) used masking tape to block off the bottom of my nail and painted the next color, and s on. It wasn’t my best work, but it’s passable. I do not recommend using masking tape, it’s too sticky!

So what do you think? Are you doing something cool with your nails this week? Let me know!

I really like the combo of the mustard yellow shirt + chunky purple scarf.  I tried to copy this look as closely as I could with items I already had in my closet.

**I know it’s been a long while since I last posted. My life has been crazy busy. BUT now that things have settled down a bit, I’m renewing my effort to post here regularly. Thanks for sticking with me  ❤

And That’s what you missed….

Hi again! I’m still here, I swear it!

Honestly, I’m just trying to figure out a way to blog that will still be really awesome and interesting for you guys, and not take a huge amount of time for me, because let’s be real for a minute- I am plenty busy already. But with the end of the school year fast approaching, maybe I will have a bit more time to blog (Yay!).

So, it would help me a lot if you could comment below and let me know what you already like about Big on Modesty, and how I can make it better.

Thanks for sticking with me, guys!


Hey guys

Yeah, I’m still around, still trying to be fashionable. I’ve just found it hard to find the time to sit down and make a proper post (which this is not going to be).

If You want to keep updated on Big On Modesty, and don’t want to wait til I can make a proper post, considering liking my Facebook page Big on Modesty

I update there much MUCH more regularly. Thanks for your patience, guys. Life is a crazy thing, sometimes.

Love your body, no matter what the body

Wonderful mirror picture taken on our roadtrip to Virginia for Thanksgiving this year. I’d like to say that I was so cute and fashionable every day I was there visiting my family, but…Mostly, I sat around in my pajamas, eating my grandma’s wonderful cooking, and relaxing. Ah well. Vacations will do that to ya, eh?

Laundry piles are free of charge to anyone who wants it, c’mon over.

I’ve dyed my hair red since I last posted, I’d forgotten about that.

I was a little hesitant to post this picture because I’m wearing a form fitting top AND bottom, and mostly that seems to be a no-no for us big girls. But you know, it doesn’t have to be. We shouldn’t be ashamed of our bodies just because they are not a certain shape/size or because they don’t fit into someone else’s standard of beauty.
