A Weekend In Feminine Dress: Two Special Guests!

Welcome to A Weekend In Feminine Dress on The Catholic Lady Blog.  This is when I post pictures of myself or a volunteer wearing a modest, feminine outfit including where it was purchased in order to encourage the apostolate of feminine dress.  If you would like to submit your photos, please contact me at: thecatholiclady@gmail.com.  Thank you! 




We are busy doing school as are so many other people this time of year.  But this is new to us and I am so glad it's going well.  We are doing the Seton Homeschool program and so far we're very pleased.  Our oldest is first grade and it's amazing how much he has already learned in only a few weeks!!  The girls want to do "school" everyday too so I'm busy finding them projects, coloring, stamping, playdough, etc.  Share your suggestions with me for preschool/Kindergarten crafts if you'd like (the less mess, the better ;) )

It's warm again today after the past few weeks being down into the 60s and 70s...but I'm still working on organizing the Fall clothes.  I need to make an effort to go shopping for some new clothes for myself, still putting that off with how busy we've been.  So that is a primary reason why Weekend In Feminine Dress is a little sparse lately...!  If you would like to send me your outfit photo, please feel free to do so, haha!  And I am also starting to put out some Fall decorations which is always so exciting!  I love Fall so much, it's always been my favorite season!  Stay tuned this week for some home pictures too!!  I'm taking pictures as I'm still arranging décor/pictures/furniture but finally at a point where it looks semi-decent enough to photograph...

Anyway, here is what we wore this weekend:





Beatrice and Rebecca-  I love these dresses on the girls!








I'M WEARING:
Top- Faded Glory
Scarf- Folk Festival
Shoes- Second-hand
Skirt- I made!








THANKS FOR VISITING!!

  1. I'll never forget my first day of school in first grade in 1990. It was a Catholic parochial school in Manchester, CT, and I was super nervous. That wasn't too long ago, and yet it almost seems like a different planet compared to today. So glad to see you homeschooling your children. They will certainly receive a wholesome Catholic education. Someday they will realize just how blessed they are to have been born in a family and circumstances that are so much better than most (sadly dysfunctional) families today.

    1. That is great that you remember! I thought I was so old when I was six and in first grade, and got to go to homeschool co-op in Northern Virginia, haha! It is sadly true that not even 30 years ago schools were so much better. I looked up our district Elementary school (not that we would seriously consider it) and on the webpage is Common Core and protecting the environment, probably an indication of a what is taught all over the nation at this point. We are happy with Seton so far and eventually will look into some good Catholic high schools. I do realize that homeschooling is not the ideal, but what else can we do? I just read about how Prince George is attending a private school in London that teaches French and Italian, music, drama and dance...it makes me think that the emphasis on Math and science is stronger in the US or at least in public schools in general. I wish we could afford more tutors and classes to teach the children about languages and arts...but we will do what we can! Prayers are appreciated!!
