Fall Clothing Inspiration


I love the styles I see out now in the stores. Usually it is hard to find pretty things and I think many styles that are usually in style are not very feminine in nature. I gravitate toward clothing that is pink or ruffly, and if it has a rose on it, even better!  I was so happy to see that flowers were in this past summer and hope to see it continued in fall.


This reminds me of how cozy sweaters can be, especially curling up on the couch with a quilt and good book in hand!


I love this rose look and had purchased several shirts this summer like this--I hope the keep it through the winter. My daughter and I both are hoping they will!


For a while I kept my clothing pretty simple because I was either pregnant or busy with little children. I am trying to change my look this year to something fresher, and to look nicer for my husband, but yet still practical and not spend too much. Trust me, I am not a fashionista by any means (I know some of you are)...but I do like pretty things!



And ruffly scarves---I have seen a few I liked this year and thinking about getting one.

Not sure how warm they will keep me,
but it would sure look pretty!


I love these feminine fall coats---







I know most people don't dress like this anymore, but I like how classy and feminine they look. They remind me of the 60's--a much simpler time.
 

Hope you are enjoying this cozy fall day!

I love those fall coats! I really like the top tan one and the bottom black one...either would look wonderful paired with a pencil skirt for church:)

I LOVE this style of clothing! Every picture you posted is exactly my style. Only thing is, most of my clothes are from a few years ago. I need to update my closet! TFS!

Hello June, I like this particular post on style for christian women! I think it is wonderful that god gives us the creativity to adorn and dress ourselves with things that makes us feel pretty and womanly! We don't have to sacrifice trendy clothing to glorify god, we can always be creative and mix and match trends with what we already have. I love the feminine ruffles and flower trend too! Thanks for posting these pretty clothes that is timeless and tasteful!

I think everything you posted was beautiful! I'm trying to be more feminine in my dress as well. Love it!

I've been loving the more classic, feminine styles that I'm seeing in stores, too. Suddenly, it's not so hard to find a ladylike skirt!

I love the sweater in the second picture. Where is that from?

Hi there! I love all of these beautifully feminine frilly styles too! I know that buying clothing and accessories can get expensive, especially with having children who need clothing, shoes, coats, etc. So, usually I make a lot of my own accessories. I found a tutorial for a scarf very much like the ruffly one that you found and like. It is very simple to make...I made a few last year. And you can add handmade flower pins to it too, to kind of dress it up a bit. So, here is the tutorial in case you or your daughters want to try your hand at it!:)

I'm a past dresser so I LOVE the fact that these styles are coming back! YAY! Some of the 60-70's stuff that's returning I could live without, but it's definitely becoming more feminine. I don't like ruffles that much myself, but that ruffle coat was lovely!

I LOVE the colors and the ruffles -- subtle and not too much fluff. :) Thanks for sharing and for the inspiration, ~Lisa

Oh that is so my style. I am finding lots of inspiration on pinterest and have pinned on my 'feminine and fashionable' board quite a number of dresses that also feature ruffles and roses. Last year I started buying most of my family's clothing online at a site that heavily discounts designer clothing. There are still many immodest styles on sale but I have been fortunate to find some quite lovely dresses and jackets similar in style to the ones you featured. I purchased a trench style jacket trimmed with lace which I feel so feminine in. I am noticing that the current trend for vintage style is having an impact. I have seen some of the young women who used to dress very casually to church turning up in lovely 50's style floral dresses. Beautiful and modest. What a transformation. I make sure I compliment them and let them know how lovely they look in the hope that they will continue to dress beautifully even when the vintage trend dies down.

I have been on a mission for the last three months to have a much fresher style at my husband request as well. I don't spend money on fashion, so thrifting is my passion. It has given me an entire wardrobe for pennies from what I would pay retail and I look awesome!!! My husband sooo loves my new look and I'm happy too.
