Fashion is something I never really got into. It's just over the past year that I've actually started buying some of my own clothes, I observe how different people from different countries and backgrounds dress, sometimes it's appalling and other times it's lovely and cute. One person that I really enjoy how she dresses is Kate Middleton. Her dresses are soo beautiful and simple yet elegant. I would love to show some people that dressing modestly can be so easy and elegant in contrast to the common thought that it's stuffy and ugly.
Why do I dress modestly? I've got asked soo many times: "Why do you wear skirts almost all the time?" Well, for a long time it was just 'because my Mom wants me to'. But now it's gotten to the point where I've thought it over and my answer is: I feel it's the right thing to do for a young lady who is following Christ. We'll never know how much it helps a guy if we girls dress modestly, but it does.. believe me, it does help!!. And I don't want to be what the Bible calls a 'stumbling block' to other believers.
What are my standards? I don't have like a paper with all my standards written on it. I just usually judge by sight if it's too tight or too short or too showy. To be honest, I like bright colors. I've been told that bright colors fit my complexion. So I like red, orange (occasionally), and just stand out colors are really fun! But, really.. it doesn't matter what my standards are. You are the one who sets your standards.. or maybe at this point, it's your parents that set the standards.
Just a couple pictures :)
This was taken a while ago.. last year, i believe.
I had to put this one on.. I love lace, people!! It's just something I love :) This was taken just about a week ago.
What do you think of modesty? I hope you aren't offended by this post, it definitely is not my intention to offend anybody! Oh, also, if any of you are still interested in a 'how I fix my hair' tutorial would you please let me know in the comments. And I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week. I'm actually going camping tomorrow.. looking forward to it, I've never gone camping before :)
