Poet Dresses: Stylish Dresses With *a little more* Coverage!

This post may contain affiliate links! Thank you for understanding!

Recently I had an amazing opportunity to partner with Poet Dresses! If you know me, then you know I am very passionate about sharing modest clothing.

It’s difficult in these modern times to find modest clothing that is also stylish. I feel like so many Christian women struggle with this. I know I do!

I mean, you want to be modest without being covered to your neck and wrists right? You want to find dresses that are elegant yet have just the right amount of coverage! That’s why I am so excited to share Poet with you.

But, before we dive into their careful selection of dresses, let me tell you about their company.

Poet, a Brand Meant To Inspire!


Poet was founded by husband and wife team, Kat and Ryan. Kat has always wanted to express herself through fashion but always found a hard time finding clothing with just the right amount of coverage.

To overcome these challenges, she and her husband founded Poet Dresses. Here’s what she had to say!

“Just like every girl, I am on that age-old journey to self-love, and one way I like to express myself is through fashion!


However, I prefer higher coverage in my clothing, which has made it difficult to truly build the unique and stylish wardrobe I’ve been imagining.


There isn’t a lot of variety in “modest” fashion and I find that most designs with higher coverage don’t have the charm that I’m looking for.


I wanted higher coverage clothing that fit my personality, that was modern and trendy, and that didn’t cover way more than necessary (if ya know what I mean).


That’s where my genius of a husband comes in. Ryan told me that if we couldn’t find what we were looking for, we would just make it ourselves. And voila! Poet was born: a stylish, spunky brand of women’s clothing with just enough coverage.


In our research for Poet, we’ve learned that I’m not alone in this journey. So many women and girls are looking for the exact same thing.


We are excited to be working together with you to create a community where women who have been largely ignored in the fashion industry can come and feel not only welcome but celebrated.


Meet cute, trending styles with the comfortable coverage you’ve been looking for. Meet Poet.

What an amazing story behind their brand! As a girl whose clothing standards don’t meet most, I was so excited to find Poet.

Details Details Details!


The first dress from Poet that really caught my eye was The Sestina Dress. Instantly upon seeing the pattern, I fell in love! 

Along with a beautiful neckline, this dress features a pattern that is classy, and the colors are light and airy! It’s my dream dress. It’s romantic, it’s modest, it’s trendy. It’s everything you could ask for in a dress!

Some great features of this dress is the custom design by Poet, zipper in the back, midi-length skirt with knee-high slit (length will vary by height), and the square front & back neckline!

This dress has a calf-length skirt and features a subtle knee-high slit for just a little bit of leg and a stunning square neckline with bust ruching.  Definitely an “everyday princess” kind of look that emphasizes your curves in all the right ways. 

If it isn’t obvious enough, The Sestina Dress makes me want to go pick a bouquet of flowers and frolic in a meadow with green grass. It makes me feel that beautiful!

Don’t be worried about the fabric being see-through! Poet knows that it is essential to have lining under our dresses. Besides, no one wants to see our undergarments! 

Even the rich Polyester fabric gives off classic Linen vibes. This fabric is soft, but not silky. It is not stretchy, so if you are between sizes, Poet recommends sizing up!

Think you’re interested in grabbing this dress? Click here to see the full dress on their website! And, if you end up buying it, please feel free to comment with a picture of you in a dress from Poet! I would be overjoyed to see my readers in Poet Dresses!

Interested in their sizing? Here is the Poet Size Guide to help you better choose the right fit for your next dress: Poet Size Guide!

Something that is really fun and unique about Poet is that ALL Poet dresses come with a poem delivered in a wax-sealed envelope! It’s a keepsake like no other.

Momanda, Built For Moms!

Momanda, Built For Moms!

Something that always brings me joy is finding brands that support moms and that are built for moms. That’s why I was so overjoyed when I discovered Momanda!

Momanda is a brand built to promote body positivity during your pregnancy and breastfeeding journey. Their products are for moms of every mind, breastfeeding or not! They strive to have comfortable yet stylish clothing for moms all over the world.

Born out of a desire for something chic and elevated, we created MOMANDA to fill a void in the maternity clothing market. Our products are designed to make each moment – pregnant or not – enjoyable, rich, fun and beautiful. We’re obsessed about individuality. We’re obsessed about quality. Simply put, we make the perfect combination of fancy and practical.”

Momanda was so kind as to send me three of some of their best-selling items! (They’re going quick, too!) 


The Dream Lace Nursing Bralette:

One of the best things about this bralette is that it was designed to flex upwards in both band and cup size to accommodate your growing body during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

This bralette also features a wire-free design for utmost comfort! It also features wider cups and wings for the best coverage when wearing. This way, you don’t have to worry about anything hanging out or not being supported! 

I was so surprised at how soft and weightless this bra is! The band itself is very soft and lightweight. I definitely have a new favorite!

The Dream Lace Nursing Bralette comes in four different colors with a variety of sizes to choose from. Grab yours here! 



Lace Hands Free Pumping Bra:

Every momma knows how hard it can be to pump, especially when your bra is in the way! That’s why Momanda has created a beautiful Lace Hands Free Pumping Bra. Not only is it super convenient for pumping, but it is also stylish and affordable!

This bra is often referred to as the “Do Anything Bra” because you can literally do anything while pumping in this bra! Not only is it great for pumping but it is also great for breastfeeding in general. 

This pumping bra looks and feels similar to a normal bra, but it’s stylish and feminine! The Lace Hands Free Pumping Bra is great for working moms as you can use it hands free and without hassle. 

The Lace Hands Free Pumping Bra comes in eight different colors and my favorite is by far the color “Cream Coffee.”


Cozy Soft Touch Lounge Set:

The product I was most excited about had to be the Cozy Soft Touch Lounge Set! It is sleek and cozy, long-sleeved, with skin-friendly perfection.

This lounge set is not only perfect for pregnancy, but for any stage that you might be in as a mom. Whether you are breastfeeding, pregnant, or simply being a mom, you can enjoy life in this super comfy wardrobe addition! 

Something I just love about this set is that it is the perfect piece to wear when you come home from the hospital. It’s stylish so you can wear it out and about or simply wear it around the house! 

The Cozy Soft Lounge Set is made of mostly cotton so it is breathable and perfect for those early postpartum days. This set comes in six different colors, with Swan White being my personal favorite.

One of the best features of Momanda’s Nursing Bra’s is that no one has to know what it is! Their bras are so concealable for nursing that it looks similar to your regular bralette. This way, you can be stylish while also keeping your intimates practical. 

Have you tried Momanda? Let me know in the comments! I would love to hear about your experience!


Holiday Gift Guides 2022 + A Giveaway!

Holiday Gift Guides 2022 + A Giveaway!

This post may contain affiliate links! If you click on a link in this post, it may be commissionable, and I may earn a small amount when you purchase off of that link. Thank you for understanding!

I have wanted to start the tradition of posting Holiday Gift Guides for my readers every November. I am so proud that I finally got around to it and could post this blog for all of you sweet readers.

Holiday shopping can be a hassle when you don’t know what to buy or when to buy it. The items I have carefully picked out are affordable and will definitely be loved by that special person in your life. It will also be a huge stress reliever for you to know that your holiday shopping is almost done!

Our holiday season is getting busier, so I used inspiration from trends and recent gift purchases to curate these gift guides. I hope you find them helpful in purchasing gifts for the upcoming holidays!


Gift Guide For Her

This is the gift guide that I love doing the most! It helps me figure out what to buy for the women in my life and also pick up on the latest trends. If you were to ask me what my favorite item from this list would be, hands down it would be the UGG Slippers. Every woman likes something cozy so that’s why I included some top items along with fashion and beauty trends.


Gift Guide For Him

Oftentimes, I struggle with buying for men around the holidays. Over the years, I think I have gotten better at it, but I still struggle. This gift guide not only helps my readers but also helps me! These items are definitely hubby approved! Especially these Galaxy Earbuds.



Gift Guide For Baby

Shopping for the little ones can either be a task or easy peasy. For me, it was easy since my little guy likes certain kinds of toys and books. Every parent wants to spoil their little one with as many gifts as they can muster. It takes a lot of self-restraint to be able to resist the urge to buy more! Want to know my favorite on this list? The Noah’s Ark from Pottery Barn!

10 Modest Swimsuits That Are Affordable, Feminine, and Gorgeous!

Modesty starts in the heart. You read that right. It starts in the heart! 


Warm weather has FINALLY approached and it’s time to get those tan lines we’ve all been dreaming of since Thanksgiving. If you’re like me, then you’re ready to get outside and in the pool! This means you might want some modest swimwear to add to your wardrobe.


As I have gotten older (and mature) I have realized that I don’t need to show off all of my skin. When going to the pool or beach, I would rather be modest than uncomfortable in a tiny bikini. Besides, it pleases my husband more when I dress modestly. How awesome is that?!


I don’t ever want to be fully clothed on the beach, in long sleeves because it’s not my style. I do want to feel cute while dressing appropriately! 


One-pieces are my favorite now, but I used to be all about bikinis. Even right after I got married I wore bikinis and I regret it. I feel so much more comfortable now when I know I’m covered up and nothing is falling out! I know my husband loves it more, too! 


With all of that being said, here are my absolute favorite modest swimsuits of the season! They are adorable, lovely, and adorable!

15 Stunning Christmas Dresses For The Holiday Season!

Since Thanksgiving has now come and gone, it’s time to get out your holiday dresses for all of those upcoming choir performances, Christmas parties, family get together’s, and more! If you’re short on what to wear for this holiday season, you will love this round-up of holiday dresses that I have selected for you!

I always say, one of the best things about the Christmas season is shopping. Especially shopping for clothes!! Like always, there are thousands if not millions of dresses all across the web that are available for you to choose from. Overwhelming, eh?

Whenever I buy a dress for the holidays, I always like to pick something that I can wear again, not just for Christmas. That way, I get my money’s worth out of it. Below I have included dresses that are sparkly, eye-catching, minimalistic, and of course, classy.

All of the dresses below will redirect you to the seller’s site so you can check it out or complete your purchase!

Oh, before I forget, why not add a little bit of accessory to complete your already gorgeous outfit? I love pairing any gold toned jewelry with my Christmas outfits. I usually go with a simple necklace, like this one from Madewell. Or, if I’m not in the mood to wear jewelry, a nice pair of heels goes wonderfully with any Christmas dress. I personally love these heels from Lulu’s.

Holiday Gift Guides 2021

Holiday Gift Guides 2021

Getting holiday gift guides ready in November is a first for me. Actually, getting them ready in general is a first. I thought it would be best to go ahead and post mine since shipping speeds are expected to be slower this year. To be honest, I just started shopping for my friends and family. Last year, I started shopping at the beginning of December, but since I could have a baby any day now, I’m choosing to start earlier. LOL.

Anyways… We all know that holiday shopping can be a pain. If you’re like me, and you kind of get stuck when buying for people, holiday gift guides are a lifesaver! I wish I had known about these sooner because it could have saved me a lot of googling. 

This year, I won’t have a lot of time to go out and shop so I will be doing most of my Christmas shopping online. Between prenatal appointments, family gatherings, and preparing for my babe that is soon to come, these gift guides have really come in handy.

I know many momma’s get busy around this time of year, so in spite of that, I have created five holiday gift guides to help you shop for your loved ones. Completely hassle-free! ENJOY!!


Gift Guide For Her

Everyone knows that buying for any woman in your life can be quite hard. Whether it’s your friends, sister, mom, mother-in-law, grandma, etc, it can be hard! Everyone has different tastes and no one wants to spend an extreme amount. I made sure to include a variety of items ranging from cozy and soft to stylish and handy! 



Gift Guide For Him

Whether you’re buying for that special someone in your life or even your brother, this gift guide is bound to have something in it that any man in your life will love! I can think of a lot of family members who would love everything on this list. 



Gift Guide For Mom

She raised you. She loves you. Shopping for mom can be an exciting time! After all of those years of her giving you gifts at Christmastime, you can finally return the favor. How awesome is that? Any mom will love this list of gifts but it’s the thought that really counts. You can even consider buying these gifts for your mother-in-law as well!



Gift Guide For Dad

Shopping for your dad or father-in-law can be extremely hard at times. I know that I struggle personally with it, but if you know what he likes and dislikes, it can make shopping easier. You know what else can make shopping for dad easier? This gift guide!



Gift Guide For The Mom-To-Be

If you’re buying for a mom-to-be this Christmas, this gift guide could help guide you on what she wants. I personally am a mom-to-be this Christmas season so trust me, I know what a new momma wants. Giving her gifts that will keep her cozy during and after pregnancy is very helpful. In this gift guide, I have included items that will help her during pregnancy and postpartum.




I hope these gift guides have given you some ideas when you start your Christmas shopping. If you’ve already started your Christmas shopping, I hope these help you finish up. Christmas is only a few weeks away so don’t wait too long to start (or finish) your holiday shopping!   Check out my latest blog post, Forever 21 Deals As Low As $1.80!
