Okay, ladies, since you proclaimed an interest in me doing a post or two on modern modesty, here you go! I've been a part of a modesty group on FB for a little while now and, between that and Pinterest, have gleaned some new, fun ideas that I'll be sharing.
I think it is really important that Christian women don't look frumpy. We're daughters of the KING. Not only is it important for us as individuals to feel pretty, but our families and especially our boyfriends/husbands deserve to have us looking our best. The world is doing its best to portray false beauty - let's stand out with true loveliness!
-Psalm 45:13-14 KJV She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework..."
Guess we better start with me, heehee! Teal and tan. If you are having trouble with an outfit, try layering. It's really the in thing, and you can really expand your wardrobe by not being afraid to mix and match!
I really liked this combo! This sweet lady gave me permission to share. Orange, dark blue, and a little bit of glam with gold and silver.
Right here, we have what is known as pattern mixing. It can be a bit tricky to do. No worries though - you'll get it! Just don't be afraid to be bold and step outside of your comfort zone.
Feeling thrifty? My sweet friend Kelsey turned this man's shirt into a lovely plaid blouse by taking in the sides, adding darts, and sewing on a bit of lace. Plaid really is the in thing right now for ladies. Give it a try!
My friend Lacey shows off a cute little baby belly and still looks adorable. Here, you have a good example of mixing different shades and patterns.
Feeling feminine? Nothing like layering, pearls, and pink to do the trick. By the way, the shrug and blouse were cast-offs from my mom and sister. Thrifting works!
Or...feeling vintage? My friend layered dark and white, threw in some plaid, and a vintage watch for the 1950's look. Cute, eh?
This sweet lady gave me permission to share her outfit. I am so recreating this! Love the layering and maxis are always a win.
Another sweet lady from Modern Modesty allowed me to share this. Beautiful, is it not?! I know you can get similar jewelry at Walmart or Charming Charlies, and these kinds of skirts are popular just about everywhere! I do believe this particular one came from Kohls.
Rainy day? Toss on a hat! Credit goes to Kelsey for this one. She thrifted this newsie cap for me. Invest in one, ladies! They are classy life-savers for bad hair days or rainy weather.
Along the lines of thrifting, you don't have to be a millionaire to have a nice wardrobe. Catos, Ebay, Amazon, Walmart, and thrift/consignment stores have very lovely options for excellent prices. Just keep an eye out. I recently got a maxi skirt for $12 from Walmart, a nice coat from Ebay for $8, and some chunky jewelry from Walmart for $3. And all the scarves I'm wearing in these photos were given to me.
What outfit would you recreate? What is your style?
